This man destroyed our credit rating. Look at unemployment, housing, no jobs people that have them are quitting because he has made it better to go on welfare than go to work. The defense budget is about to be sliced and Obama is nowhere in sight he's to busy being off on a fund raiser thats because he doesnt care about our defense. He is for letting immigrants stay so he can get their vote he's now for gay marriage so he can get their votes everything he does is for one reason he doesnt want to move out of the WH. If you can really look back over his last term and say we are better now you must have been in a really bad place.
    Didn't his heath care plan have an individual mandate? Just asking because it seems like we've spent about a trillion dollars and 2 years saying an individual mandate is unconstitutional and something only a socialist would do.

    Buzz, you have got to be joking! Accusing conservatives of changing the subject when confronted with something uncomfortable is laughable. The only thing you left wing nuts do is avoid answering questions and throw emotion into the conversation. You can't be serious or are you really that dilusional?

    I don't know. Go back and tally up the number of conservatives that came back with something totally unrelated to the topic in the OP...

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I gave you a direct answer (not that you know what that is).
    You ignored it.

    Are you equating states rights (MA) and what Israel did with what Obama has foisted on the American people?

    You wanna follow Israels lead on a few other issues as well?

    I think it was probably easier for Israel to institute socialized medicine than it is for the US. Also, easier for MA to do so than it would be for TX, where there is a large problem with illegal immigration.

    I noted that the Israeli proposal is four "meat and potatoes" basic plans ... to which the individuals ... 81% ... add their choice of supplemental insurance. Not exactly what's happening in the US.

    If you look at the Medicare layout ... it is very similar. If you rely on basic Medicare only, you would not be very happy. Each month you pay for additional coverage through Medicare; then, you will really need supplemental coverage on top of that; and then prescription coverage on top of that.

    It all depends on what the basic "required" plans are. And don't forget, with Obamacare, if you happen to be able to afford a top-of-the-line plan (which the govt considers too luxurious) ... they will tax you on that as well.

    Seems the govt doesn't want people to be without coverage ... but they also don't want you to be too well insured, even if you can afford it. What's that all about? I guess they figure if you can afford good health care insurance, then you should be able to kick in something extra for "the common good"? Penalty for not having insurance, and penalty for having very good insurance. Does that sort of place you into a pre-conceived box designed by some "elite" bureaucrat?

    So am I to assume you DON'T think, just because the information came from Stansberry, that Detroit is a worthwhile example to use when illustrating how America under Obama is following along a similer path?

    Furthermore, what makes you believe he was 'convicted'? Is he in leg-irons?...behind bars???

    My 'point' was to bring back a reasonable similarity between what happened to Detroit, and the politics that caused it, to what's going on in this nation under the current oligarchy. And worse...what we can expect should this regime get re-elected.

    The primary point I brought out was where Buzz comes from, and what his background is for his incredible staunchness and almost blind support for the Democrat party and this current leadership. While one would think that some conservatism should have rubbed off on him when he moved to South Dakota, but then I realize he moved to one of the Democrat hot spots in the state...the home of South Dakota State University. My son graduated from SDSU, and was appalled at that school's politics. I told him it was probably the same in Vermillion, much like it is in Madison, Wisconsin. The teachers unions keep everything liberal/socialistic, and anything conservative is anathama to them.
