udhq: randomjsa: Premiums going up, the majority of the people have been and continue to be against ObamaCare, businesses are against ObamaCare as well. He's really done a bang up job on that, screwing it up worse than ever in order to 'fix it'.

If there are many people like me, I suspect ObamaCare will do wonders for the economy.

Being able to get insurance through someone other than an employer has enabled me to quit my corporate gig and start my own business.


You socialist!

I can shop for healthcare for the first time in my life. He has done a bang up job.

It's probably closer to reality than what "conservatives" believe about Obama...

A majority of people who don't know what the fark they're against, that is.

businesses are against ObamaCare as well.

Don't give a shiat. It's a cost of doing business now. You'll get over it. Maybe instead of whining about ObamaCare, businesses should support a single-payer system, so they can get out of the heath care business altogether.

I understand the point of the article, you've got to keep the morale of the soldiers up, but don't you think a nice Allison Brie/Gillian Jacobs burlesque show would work better?


Oh right, this is the part of the show where we pretend the president didn't inherit the most quickly shrinking economy in history, make it grow almost immediately, and sustain that growth steadily for over three years.

well, I was thinking we would collectively enjoy watching Allison Brie and Gillian Jacobs parading around in underwear instead of trying to argue whether the current climate constitutes an Economic "revolution" that the incumbent would want to take credit for. Watching attractive women parade around in sexy underwear for a minute and a half is usually far more productive then arguing about economics, especially when the one party knows less then a sociologist working a double integral.*

Let me google that for myself...

http://www.salon.com/2012/10/30/romneys_lax_regulation_fueled_mening it is_outbreak/

But the epidemic may also play a role in the presidential campaign, now that state records reveal that a Massachusetts regulatory agency found that the New England Compounding Co., the pharmaceutical company tied to the epidemic, repeatedly failed to meet accepted standards in 2004 - but a reprimand was withdrawn by the Romney administration in apparent deference to the company's business interests.

in short, he went lenient on them in the past when they broke regulations because if he followed the letter of the law they would go out of business.


I submitted this earlier to no avail.

yeah, that's why i can never accept deregulation of any industry. well, let me say i am flexible but by no means would i support de-reg simply to bolster the profits of some lackluster company.

My household income is up over 2008. Wife has a solid job and I am about to finish my Master's. Plus I am looking forward to seeing a doctor that I haven't been able to afford. So I think President Obama's second term will be even better than the first. Despite historic opposition in the House and Senate, progress will not be stopped.

But is it so hard to imagine what the rate of unemployment in the United States might be today in the absence of Obama's decisions?

Just wait a few minutes and someone will break out this POS as evidence of some sort of stimulus failure:

You are one of those who actually drinks the kool-aid that Obama has made....and you have everything backwards.

Most economists agree that small businesses will lead us into a more robust recovery...yet Obama is not helping small businesses and hasn't the last four years.

Obama signed American Recovery and Reinvestment Act aka the first stimulus plan, in February 2009, shortly after coming into office.....which, unfortunately, only benefitted big business and big unions.

Obama's regulations place a heavier burden on small business than on big business.

Plus, remember only big business and big unions got Obamacare waivers. 

If you think Obama is all for the small business, you are sadly mistaken.

Healthcare reform was wholly insufficient, a gift to the insurance corporations, and undermined the possibility for single-payer or even public option.

93% of the economic recovery has gone to the 1%. Homeowners were used to "foam the runway" for banks.

He has continued the policies of permanent war, undeclared war, preemptive strike, extrajudicial assassination, and the surveillance state that liberals and progressives were apoplectic about until they started being done by someone with a "D" next to his name.

He really is "the black Kennedy"- although probably not for the reason this worthless pop-philosopher meant.
