    [QUOTE=palmetto defender;4037895]Sorry. Minus 10
    Get a job with or without insurance. If not provided by a company buy it privately.
    Hospitals should be off limits except to paying customers. No money, no insurance? Find a free clinic.
    Nowadays, many areas also have surgical centers. Set up by doctors because hospitals are gougers. They charge 50%-75% less. Proof of payment up front of course. Both my wife and I have had procedures in such places. Better.
    Neither my wife nor I have been uninsured since we graduated college at 22. It's called meeting one's responsibility. Same with home, car and life insurance.[/QUOTE]

    You must live in the Fists neighborhood.

    In a special election in June 2009 a Democrat candidate for Congress, Bill Owens, beat a Republican and a Tea Party candidate in a conservative upstate district (NY-23).

    Liberals called it a bellwether. Maybe it was, because Owens won again in 2010.

    Then again, liberals insist this inflation we're seeing in gas, food, etc. is not actually inflation, but part of economic recovery. That if we sell our homes we'll be able to... oh, wait. That's some "if".

    Things not so rosy for Democrats with Obama underperforming Carter. At some point the news cycle will have to focus on this economy and we're gonna see how popular the Democrats are.

    Unless, of course, Obama has, in fact, taken the car out of the ditch? Anyone?

    Sorry. Not sure what the "Fists neighborhood" is.
    I do live in a nice neighborhood. I earned it. I have always spent a lot of money on insurance. I have many different kinds, covering all sorts of eventualities. After required financial obligations, insurance and savings come next. Some people have as their priorities booze, vacations and large screen TVs-then cry poverty.

    He is reigning over the worst economy since the great Depression (unless you're an MD at Goldman or work for the US gov't.)

    Other than that he's been an acehole. I mean an ace in the hole.

    The Carter nonsense, which was a comparison that the propaganda machine made while Obama was still walking around on inauguration day, has been laid to rest by responsible observers.

    why? The moment that the Bin Laden operation became successful the comparison with Carter was ended by [B]responsible[/B] observers. Carter's failed attempt to rescue the American hostages in Iran was the final straw.

    But don't worry, the brainwashed will still make those comparisons because, well, its sounds good. Also, they will say the president is not an American citizen, is connected to terrorists and continue to use his middle name as much as possible. In short, they will say whatever Hannity/Limbaugh/Rove/Beck tells them to say.

    The economy is not in the realm of many in government. Congress pays lip service to it but I fully believe they only care about votes and the ability to raise taxes based on a more robust economy.

    I have never really met anyone in a government job that fully understood how important it is to deliver value, that a 3rd party will pay for and buy your own benefits and lifestyle with the profit. Let alone took a college course in macro economics.

    the country faced the worst downturn since the Great Depression in 2008.

    the recession actually ended in 2009.

    we've been in mild recovery (growth) for about 2 years.

    things are far from perfect (housing index, unemployment) but there aren't GDP statistics that back-up the gloom and doom scenarios.

    the inflation is actually a good thing. the alternative would be Japan like deflation (Stagflation) which is far worse of a situation. the Fed has been hoping for inflation and their policies have been designed to foster it. we actually want prices to go up.

    the theory is they can control the inflation they can't control the deflation.

    More laughs

    Anyone with a brain, or tuned-up abacus knows the NBER announcement was feel-good shovel-ready BS...so any double dip would be counted as a NEW recession and not 0's continued failure...Until recent months, real per capita GDP growth under B. H. Carter was NEGATIVE...GDP growth is still a meagre 1.8% (projected annually)

    To make your assertion(s) even more laughable/pathetic you don't even know what Stagflation is ...it's when Inflation is high , Unemployment is high and Demand and Growth are low...has fuq-all to do with Deflation

    Inflation is at 6.8% and running at @10% annual rate no thanks to 0 and all his enablers

    [B]'Stagflation" is an ugly word for an ugly situation: persistent high inflation combined with high unemployment and stagnant demand in a country's economy. The term was coined by British politician Iain Mcleod in a speech to Parliament in 1965. We haven't experienced it here in the United States since the bad old days of the 1970s. [/B]
    [B]Yet with prices on the rise and unemployment still high, the U.S. economy again seems to be entering stagflation. April's producer price index for finished goods, which excludes services and falling home prices, rose 6.8%. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that intermediate goods prices for April were rising at a 9.4% annual clip. Meanwhile the official nationwide unemployment rate is mired close to 9%, without counting a large backlog of discouraged workers who are no longer officially in the labor force. So stagflation it is.[/B]

    Fascinating, really, and I couldn't disagree more, but not a recommended campaign trail theme.
