    “Lesser of TWO evils = The Democrats” United States is so broke but the GOPTP demanded the $10 BILLION Bush Tax Cuts to be passed and didn’t care how it would be paid for because they know the American Taxpayer would be the ones footing the bill! Fact is Fact: The GOPTP does NOT want anyone to mention that George W. Bush was POTUS for 8 years leaving behind a $12 TRILLION national debt + 2 WARS costing SO FAR over $3 TRILLION dollars + a ECONOMIC CRISIS + A RECESSION + A $950.000 price tag for UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE in IRAQ that also being PAID for by the American Taxpayer + $700 BILLION WALLSTREET BAILOUT! AND 15 MILLION jobless Americans with nothing forthcoming out of the 112th Congress to help them! 3 JOBS BILL introduced from the 111th Congress and BLOCKED by the Republicans! No JOBS BILL introduced from the NEW REPUBLICAN 112th Congress because they are too busy with PAYBACK legislation bought and paid for by the Conservative Elite.

    Voting for the lesser of two evils won’t save this country, it will only hasten a total collapse. If you are so afraid that to vote your conscious will put the lesser of the two evils in office, then I say you have already lost the right to be free and I am ashamed to call you my fellow American, Sher1.

    I get what you’re saying but I cannot see one Republican who has ever expressed a single policy that would help any of us. As I said before when one of them arrives on the scene, I will be the first to vote for them, until then, I have no choice but to go down what appears to be the safer road.

    I agree totally “Was”. One side is just as bad as the other. Regardless how you vote America will not change with both parties continuing down the same path. Phrase, “It is better to reorganize and lead, then follow the same path and be doomed with continual failure” by wmstaff 2011.

    Every time I see Paul Ryan on TV the first thought that pops into my mind is con-man. Who REALLY gave him his “mandate”?

    I already posted about him receiving $100,000 from the Koch brothers.

    So far we know that a big part of his budget is another huge tax cut for the rich. I listened to him today say how that will create jobs. Sound familiar? The same old trickle down garbage that never created jobs.

    We hear how he wants to privatize Medicare and Medicaid to “save” the programs without “encouraging people to go on welfare”.

    Lets look at his REAL motives for doing that…

    RYAN’S TIES TO HEALTH CARE INDUSTRY: Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) released his budget proposal Tuesday calling to cut spending by $5.8 trillion over the next ten years. Among the recommendations is privatizing Medicare and Medicaid, the government’s health insurance programs for elderly and low-income citizens. If the proposal passes, the health care industry stands tofinancially benefit from this privatization.

    was, would you consider joining the obama/biden 2012 ticket? i mean you already have a good eye for republican issues. i mean your exactly the type of person we want. you point out shortcomings and issues with the other party ONLY. everything you say is against republicans. meanwhile the “guy” in charge destroys the country. oh and the top 2 percent you always talk about are the only people obama gives attention to and cares about like GE. ROFL.

    there will always be a place on the obama/biden 2012 support ticket for people like you. we want people who will support obama no matter what he does or doesn’t do even if he lies or ignores us all the while blaming republicans for everything under the sun. oh we believe your perfect. will you join us?

    And Ryan is no stranger to the health care industry — he’s actually one of the top Republican recipients of political action committee contributions from the health sector. 

    Ryan is a member on the House Ways and Means committee and its subcommittee on health. 

    The statistics below show his connection to the health care industry during the 2010 election cycle:

    Political action committees in the health sector donated more than $269,050 to Ryan, ranking him 10th out of 383 Republican candidates receiving donations from the sector.

    PACs affiliated with the pharmaceutical industry donated $74,000 to Ryan, ranking him 16th out of 242 Republican candidates receiving donations from the industry

    PACs affiliated with health professionals donated more than $133,550 to Ryan, ranking him 11th of 339 Republican candidates receiving donations from the industry

  • WasMiddleClass 04/10/2011 7:37am

    PACs affiliated with the health services industry donated $43,000 to Ryan, ranking him 5th of 215 Republican candidates receiving donations from the industry

    Ryan’s top 15 donors during the 2010 election cycle included PACs and individual employees of Abbott Laboratories, Humana Inc., Blue Cross/Blue Shield and Aetna Inc.

    So who does Ryan and this fake tea party REALLY work for?

    And there is some good info on Obama’s financing on that link too…

    White House: Obama to Lay Out New Spending Plan to Cut Deficit

    This Obama layout is a compromise and on the backs of every American.

    Plouffe, Obama’s messenger, shuttled around the dial, seeking to link December’s bipartisan deal on tax cuts with Friday night’s nail-biter agreement on this year’s budget as evidence that both parties can govern together when they want to.

  • WasMiddleClass 04/10/2011 8:40am

    Who won in those “deals”?

    Even more tax cuts for the rich while taxes on the poor were increased.

    Who does Obama work for?

    And stop pre-editing my posts!

    You know something, I was talking to a woman last week who said she has a twenty year old daughter with type 1 diabetes, she was against the Unions and the healthcare bill and the Dems etc., not surprising as she is a Floridian.
    She was worried about her daughter not being able to get healthcare in the future. I threw it out there that the new healthbill must have helped her daughter and she answered, because of it she will be able to stay on my insurance until she is twenty six and then I threw out there that buy the time she was twenty six, the rest of the bill would have kicked in and she would be able to get insurance because pre-existing conditions would no longer prevent her. She grudgingly admitted that was true.

  • adamaiken 04/10/2011 10:23am

    I don’t understand why nobody gives credit where it is due. That is a pretty big change and unless you are personally touched by illness I guess the enormity of that is lost on certain hard-hearted, mean spirited, pig headed,
    brain dead, excuses for human beings.

  • adamaiken 04/10/2011 10:28am

    I am an IT professional but I had to work in insurance since 2006 because of outsourcing and I am quite familiar with how insurance companies work and if eliminating pre-existing conditions and guaranteeing more access to healthcare is the only change then it is monumental. Having to face health problems myself, I finally began to understand what is important in life and no budget should ever measure and mete out the availability of healthcare. Heathcare and economics are diametrically opposed issues.

  • adamaiken 04/10/2011 10:31am

    It also amazes me that the Ryan character and his gang never popped up with any concerns during the eight years of Bush’s administration when they were pissing on our country and living it up at the expense of the lower classes.

    “pissing on our country and living it up at the expense of the lower classes” that pretty much is the descriptive sentence that explains the entire obama/biden ticket/presidency. are you on board or not?

  • adamaiken 04/10/2011 10:34am

    why vinmarly, you just used the rofl calling card of Nobama, ha ha ha , so I guessed correctly, our resident troll is back
