              Well...I certainly agree!!!!  He wants the people to become dependent upon the governement...example...creating government jobs...wanting you to be on the “national heathcare program“...and wants it mandatory at that...HE WANTS TOTAL CONTROL OF YOU!!!  And people do not see the writing on the wall....all I can say...“I told you so“.  

          And that little $13 a week I get extra in my paycheck....ummm..I“m going to pay it all back and more when it comes tax time.  The tax table was not changed for that little “stimulation“.  But of course...those that think it’s soooo wonderful...don’t get it!!  

          Yes...a dictator on the horizon....how sad!!

        • Im just totally baffled.  I dont get it.  We here in USA are sruggling and we give all this to other countries.  When someone/or something/or some country apologizes...its because something was wrongly done.  Why in hell would we ever apologize for whatever this country has down when it has done NOTHING wrong????   I had high hopes for this administration but my faith in it has increasingly diminished.

          like i said on another issue just recently.. this is supposed to be a free country but it is nothing but a fee country... we are not even going to own our own footprints soon... it has been said that this president will finally break the camels back and will do it intentially... he kept his blackberry when no other could, and now will not produce his birth certificate and i want to ask {this is not a pres. that i stand behind}every since he cam into office all i have heard of is him going to hawaii and giving his opinion on the carolina game, and a stimulus cobra pkg, that insurance does not acknowledge exists!
          and people{friends} i know here that are going hungry and loosing their damn homes,
          and now i hear about the 200 mill..to pakistan or where ever,

        • You are right Annie...he never lied...he told YOU..he told ME..exactly what he planned to do...but glorified it and turned it around to where the ones that he knew would not really dig...listen..educate themselves...would fall for it....ex. stimulus checks...$13 more in your paycheck....and now he is trying to do it with giving HEALTHCARE TO EVERYONE.  Oh...Mr. Wonderful....the savior to the world.  Yeah right....

          Money to Pakistan?????  WHY??????  Ummm..because he likes those terrorist countries?  He wants to release the terrorists in G.Bay.....release them on YOU AND ON ME...on your children...your grandchildren..your family and friends.  He wants them to be free to try to kill you AGAIN.  Folks...those people in their minds....think it will glorify themselves...glorify their god...to kill those who are not like them.  They don’t care about YOU.  THEY WILL DIE TRYING TO KILL YOU.  What part of that equation do those people who think Obama is the best thing since sliced bread not get???  It’s a no brainer to me.

        • Just watched Obama’s infomercial on ABC tonight, (for the record, Charlie Gibson really looked tough, ha) and as expected, he was not pressed or HELD ACCOUNTABLE for the claims he is making. He actually said that the health care plan he wants is/will be paid for based on raising taxes on people making $250k and up and cutting “waste” and “unnecessary procedures and expenses. There actually were a couple of good questions put to him by doctors, like: who will decide what procedures are necessary and what gets cut? His answer was, Experts and doctors, sounds good right? Who decides who these experts should be? What set of guidelines will they be operating from? What happens when there are so many people needing so much care, treatments, operations, medicines, testing? I did not watch every minute of this ongoing Campaign speech, but no one EVER nails him down! He gives broad answers that sound good if you know nothing about what this process really will end up looking like. He is talking about expanding what is already in existence (medicare, medicaid, social security), just by reconfiguring the layout and changing the names which are bureaucratic, mismanaged messes. He mentioned restricting the insurance companies even more, but not in the way that would actually help lower premiums, provide consumer protection, and expand coverage! No, the only example he gave was making sure that people with pre-existing conditions could not be refused, which of coarse, once again sounds good (he cares about us!), but the restrictions liberals talk about is Control, Control, Control! Making them create coverage packages that the consumer can’t pick and choose what they want to pay for to have covered, no they dictate what HAS to be covered, placing all types of mandates & restrictions on the insurance industry that has CAUSED it to be so expensive and unavailable to many people who COULD otherwise afford to be covered or have coverage through an exployer or through a “pool” where groups or people could join their resources to make it affordable. The ONLY restrictions the government should mandate would be to make sure the insurance company covers you for what they say they will and what you pay for, and cover you on time and when you need it. Hold them accountable to the consumer and protect their needs and rights. THAT‘S IT! Living in New Jersey, I can’t shop outside of my state, (not even in neighboring states) for less expensive coverage. I am held hostage to the laws and restrictions the liberals in this state have placed on MY OPTIONS. As an individual, I pay 50% more for the SAME coverage, that a group policy costs and you can’t buy a group policy unless you are a business. I could go on, as I have studied this issue and dealt with it first hand, as well as dealing with the government with social security and medicaid with my mother in her later years and I know about being at the mercy of state or federal programs. They suck! I am fed up with his lying almost EVERYDAY (and he has been on TV just about everyday for how long? 40 years?) He says so many things, about so many things and no one puts the facts in his face and shows how disingenuous he is, I feel like it is the Twilight Zone! I hope people snap out of this fog soon, because he is doing so much all at the same time that will profoundly effect all of us in the years to come in very negative ways, that it is really frightening.
