Can any of you tell me which policied implemented solely by President Bush that you firmly oppose. Because honestly, I have serious concerns if Barack or Hillary were elected, and the catastrophic failure this country will become.
This country is a catastrophic failure. We have a debt that went from two trillion dollars to ten trillion. We are mired in an unwinnable war, and we can't even catch a terrorist who lives in a cave after he murders 3,000 of our citizens. We have millions without healthcare, and middle class income is falling instead of rising for the first time in history, and traditional middle class assets such as home values and 401ks are going down the toilet. You call that some kind of mark of success? Bushism is a failure, a scam to further enrich the rich, nothing more, and it has worked quite well for them, while everyone else is doing worse.
Have any of you considered how the government is going to provide people with socialized healthcare. Can you even begin to comprehend how many billions of dollars it is going to cost? Where do you think that money is going to come from?
Perhaps you should ask a Japanese or an Englishman, or a Canadian, they seem to be finding the dollars just fine. If you were to ask me, I would tell you that there is a huge amount of waste in the redundancy of insurance company beuracracies and paper work. The solution is to create a single national health insurance company that all would be required to purchase health insurance from, so the answer is: from you, just like it does now.
What do you think is going to happen to the quality of treatment that we have been receiving in this country. Am I the only one left who thinks that you deserve only what you work to achieve?
Plenty of people work, pal, some of them simply do not make as much money as you and many of them work for greedy bastards who will not provide health insurance. Since the control of greedy bastards is a government function, I think those whose "quality of treatment" consists of dying in an emergency room waiting area will see this as an improvement. You, on the other hand, would be free to buy supplemental insurance from my new firm, The Greedy Bastards Insurance Corporation. While others you small reptiles as logos, ours will be an over-stuffed pig.
the democratic party so willing to sabotage the economy by thinking that they have the right to expand government to control large corporations and tell them how much they should be able to profit?
Is that a serious question? Perhaps you could rephrase it so it makes sense, the Republicans have been the ones who seemed to have sabotaged the economy lately.
the hell is Obama going to provide so much for the middle class by raising taxes, and increasing the cost for the corporations that employ the working class? If the corporations have higher costs, they are going to lower their wages. Are you people completely inept? Do you really think that we need more government to solve all of our problems?
I have heard no proposals from Obama on raising corporate income taxes. His proposals are to raise personal income taxes on those with incomes over $250,000 so that they will no longer be getting a free welcher's ride on the rest of us with their phony "tax cuts", which have never been nothing more than a huge Ponzi scheme to rip off our grandchildren by borrowing huge sums of money that they will have to pay, and then giving the money to the rich in the form of "tax cuts". In fact, Obama policy is lowering taxes on the middle class.
Your idea on corporate costs is ridiculous. Currently, all healthcare costs in this country are borne by employers. Moving this off their backs as a cost of business and moving it onto a national health insurance corporation will save them billions, and in fact this is one of the reasons we have such a difficult time competing in global markets - the companies we compete against, Chinese, Japanese, Germans, English, all have national health insurance, allowing them to bid lower.
God forbid we should hold ourselves(the individuals) accountable and actually work towards EARNING the American dream, we should just elect someone who will give it to us!!!
Obama's entire message is based on self-reliance. I think you should stop listening entirely to rightwing scare-tactic Swiftboat email-hoax bullshit and listen to what he has to say. You can start by reading this:
