Employers Use Obamacare as an Excuse to deny workers health care and even cut hours, to avoid paying for health care. Some turn around and spend it on free pizzas for a football team, so maybe they can afford it?.
Obamacare: Better Than Nothing?
House Republicans are wasting a lot of taxpayer money grandstanding to fight Obamacare, even willing to “shut down the government” over it. They’d like us all to think it’s some commie liberal plan to give us all free health care. No, that would have been the “public option” which I would much rather have had than this privatized bullshit that was written by insurance companies and basically is the same as we have now with the HMO deciding what’s covered and what is not. Big surprise the sellout Democrat who wrote this shit with the insurance and pharma co’s left office? Rotten privatized bullshit and they want to pretend it’s socialism, when really, it’s a strange hybrid of fascist socialism where it’s socialism for corporations and capitalism for the rest of us. They’re busting our unions and sending the middle class onto the dole, now they want to blame poor people for our debt?
Those who opposed Social Security and Medicare were not able to get rid of it politically, so they found ways to profit off those programs and it has turned into a multi headed beast that is bankrupting our treasury as even luxury items are “Voucher billed.”

Dear President Obama, and any other Democrat in office, who thinks “bipartisan” means caving in to hysterical Republican demands and giving away the farm, for a few measly overdue bits of scraps.
So, the memo has gone out. “Fiscal Cliff” is the new code, to scare people about the economy. Let us keep our tax handouts to the richest 1%, or we’ll threaten you with economic calamity and drive you off a financial cliff. We’ll threaten to crash your economy. Again.
Didn’t you do that to us already? Ooh. Pass TARP or you won’t be able to get any more loans! Okay. We passed it. Economy still went down the toilet! Do we need a rush on the banks? Just take all our money OUT of Wall Street’s Casino?
Is the GOP a Threat to National Security? Did the wars make us more secure? Some argue, it has actually made us less safe.

“The President signed this assault on our Bill of Rights on New Year’s Eve, 2011. Those who still believe in him think he’s being blackmailed by world financiers, skeptics think he’s sold out. Whatever you think, it reeks with the odor of lobby. It really is a shame that for all his smarts, he’s letting his advisors lead him around by the nose. Tsk, Tsk, Mr. President. I really did think more of you. Sad to see you basically just declare war upon the American Citizenry and declare America a “battleground” where mom and pop will now have to endure jacked up military dudes showing up in riot gear to check out granny’s save the whale posts. Yeah? Greenpeace is now a terrorist group? Who knew? Granny, there’s some dudes here to see you.
Granny takes one long look at them and says ‘how much is that gear costing me, dudes?’ ” – Rabble Rouser

Tick tock people – time to wake up. There are chilling things that could be happening this very minute. Our president is poised to sign a document that shreds our Bill of Rights. Here I thought I voted for a Constitutional Scholar. I thought he’d protect our rights, not sign them away. He will be losing the coveted Independent Vote with a stupid move like this. He will lose the votes of all those starry eyed liberals who voted for him thinking he could perform miracles. He will only be licking the boot heels of the Republicans, who wrote this assault upon the American Citizen, and who have declared war against him anyway. What a stupid move, Mr. President. Your “note” attached will not save you.
What is happening to America, folks?

Whose ideas will prevail?
Will the 1%, who control the world’s resources, continue to fool the people into thinking they’re on their side?
Or, will history repeat itself, and people wake up, when the suffering has become enough?

Guess it’s time for the market to take a dip. Are short sellers lighting cigars somewhere? All it takes is a hush, a whisper and a false report, to bring down an entire company overnight. Yes, because regulators are so intent on pleasing their corporate masters, they threaten to plunge America into default, rather than bite the hand that feeds them.
Yes. The boom and busting bubble market will always pop and go down. Those who are hoarding cash will go shopping for the low, low price of whatever they decide to plunge the price down to. If you’ve already got investments, hold on. The roller coaster usually comes on the heels of political news, so it’s not surprising to see it happening now.
No matter your political bent, what we spend our money on in this country is – or should be – important to all taxpayers. Politicians, lately, all seem to make their claims under the banner of “the American People” want this, and won’t stand for that, all really to sell us on their agenda, usually bought and paid for by those that financed their campaign. Certainly, the “will of the people” should be what all elected officials work to implement, but it isn’t happening now.
What are the People’s priorities? What do we want to spend our money on?
