Democrats are happy, no doubt, to have the overwhelming support of young, “low information” voters. And, presumably, they have little desire to see this constituency become better informed as a general matter. But relying on the votes of young, low information voters is one thing; relying on their behavior is another. And the Democrats are relying on their behavior. Obamacare, the signature accomplishment of the Democratic Party, depends on young, healthy individuals to buy health insurance. Without their widespread participation in the online insurance exchanges as a means of subsidizing the cost of treating older, sicker Americans, insurance premiums will sky-rocket, thereby

They were informed over and over again. They just chose to curse those who tried to warn them and continue to vote for their stomachs. They knew and know right from wrong and chose the wrong so their selfish stomachs could be continually filled...even if they didn´t want to work or be responsible.

The left is engrossed by a major philosophical flip flop here. Their voters heavily rely on government giveaways,now all of a sudden they´re asked to pay for something. It might not even be the money but the idea they´ve been stabbed in the back.This was really an unforced error dreamed up a a brainiac bureaucrat with no understanding of the real world,just X´s and O´s on a chalk board.

A large percentage of the people believe that corporations and wealthy people are greedy and evil, and democrats are only trying to take a little from them and give it to the people. I´ve had discussions with some of them and it really does come down to that.

Complete repeal of this law may be difficult but it is not going to survive as written. It is not about healthcare. It is about redistribution of income. The Government will decide who is the most deserving of Other People´s Money and so far the young people they are counting on to pony up are not on the list of the deserving. It may put a damper on the Occupy movement. This is not what they were expecting.

Evil of this magnitude must go in its entirety - lock, stock and barrel - if it goes at all. Was it possible to win WW II while still leaving parts of the Nazi regime in place?

As it stands today - this law will send the entire HealthCare sector into free fall. When the employer mandate hits - Medical Practices, Insurers and even some Top Hosptials will be forced into bankrupcty.

The next president will inherit a collapsing Healthcare sector MUCH WORSE than the mortgage bubble Obama inherited.

#3 is exactly correct. Young people (and MOST liberals) believe businesses have plenty of money and need to pay more to their employees in pay and benefits. They are convinced it´s that simple. Unbelievable the ignorance that is out there!

FTA: As the National Journal notes, the chances that Obamacare will be repealed next year are “remote.”

You’re not kidding they’re remote. Obama would veto any attempt to repeal ObamaCare. Overriding his veto requires two thirds of both the House and the Senate. We certainly don’t have that now. And even after 2014, we won’t have it. Getting to two thirds of the Senate would mean that we would have to take 20 of the 33 or 34 seats up for election. We will do well in 2014, but we won’t do that well.

Typical libtard: help other people but don´t ask me to get my hands dirty or take anything from me. obamacare is just a means of destroying our economy . If people that don´t need it don´t sign up then they will have to take the money from those that have some. Who do you think will ´pay´ for this ? Hide your wallets and empty your savings , including 401 K´s because that is a huge temptation that they are already looking at with hungry eyes.

Bingo, #5! The longer Barry is in power, the greater the similarities to Hitler´s rise to power and the kinds of people he used and organized to insure his power.

After WWI Hitler first became known for his oratory skills. Today we laugh at Hitler´s speaking style, but back then it was mesmerizing. The more apparent the similarities become, the more incredulous I am that Obama is getting away with it.

So much of Obama´s rise and current power is almost textbook Hitler. Who in this regime could know enough to utilize the Nazi concepts? Take a wild guess - could it be wealthy, old George Soros? There are some other similarities which a well-educated, rabble- rouser could know and utilize. Take another wild guess - could it be Bill Ayers?

The Soros/Ayers influence added to the Iranian-born, Valerie Jarrett control of Obama, America has a lethal drug. Biden, though of slender build, is our Hermann Goring.

The thing is MOST people are basically uninformed when it comes to business expenses. I worked for a while as a truck driver who delivered supplies to restaurants. Most of the restaurants paid us cash for the deliveries. One of my fellow drivers thought the bosses were rolling in money because he saw all of the cash we brought back each day. It never occurred to him that the vast majority of that cash went to what our bosses paid for the stuff we delivered, our wages, and the cost of running the trucks.

I take comfort in Herb Stein´s Law: If something cannot go on forever, it will stop.

That short aphorism describes Obamacare. Our esteemed leaders don´t understand that the average American can´t afford a $6000 annual premium plus a $6000 annual deductible for health insurance. All the PR in the world won´t make that simple fact go away. All the Obama interviews with TV personalities won´t put that money into the checkbooks of ordinary people.

When only the sickest among us sign up for Obamacare, the reality is that premiums will have to go up to rates that make a $6000/$6000 policy look like a bargain. Putting everybody on Medicaid might look like a solution, but there isn´t enough money in China to support that unless we trade our doctors for herbalists and our treatment regimens for palliative care.

This progression cannot be sustained. Therefore it will stop.

One of the reasons that the younger, and others, believe that large companies and their CEO´s etc. are rolling in cash is the advent of companies rewarding it´s top CEO´s with huge "bonuses". As such, the lower socio-economic crowd are led to believe that since they have all that money that was earned on their labor, then they are "entitled" to some of it. And the dims have, for several decades, been very successful at selling that idea.

Øbsamacare is not going to be repealed! Ever! It is doing exactly what it was designed to do- destroy the best health care system in the world. Øbama has one mission and one mission only- to downgrade this nation to third world status. It´s all part of the massive global agenda. Don´t see it? Just keep watching. He´s a long way from done with us. His Democrat enablers are not through serving him and his handlers.

Now, hand me back my freshly folded tin foil hat- I wear it proudly as one of the very few who sees the truth.

“Fast N’ Loud” host Richard Rawlings has found what he calls the car industry’s “Holy Grail” — the first two Pontiac Firebirds ever built. Called simply “#1” and “#2,” the prototypes were manufactured by Pontiac engineers and were used as models for the 1967 Firebird, which revolutionized the world of sporty “muscle cars” when it rolled off the assembly line. “We found the cars in a garage in Connecticut,” says Rawlings. “They were in a dilapidated barn and are the very first Firebirds .?.?. they were hand-made .?.?. and were used by GM to decide if they wanted to build the Firebird.” Discovery

What Happened to the Tea Party?

It has been five years since the Tea Party movement broke out as a national phenomenon. It began, of course, with Rick Santelli’s “rant heard ’round the world” in February of 2009, which brought widespread attention to the idea of a modern revival of the revolutionary anti-tax fervor behind the Boston Tea Party. But the early rallies were small and largely attracted the same old die-hard right-wing activists, rather than drawing in new people. I didn’t know whether the Tea Party would become a real phenomenon until April 15, 2009—Tax Day being a perfect time to protest big government—when there were hundreds

Let´s get one thing clear: If someone could wave a wand and make Jeb Bush president it would be a very good thing for the world and this country. As his mother said, he is the best-prepared person. But as his mother also said, he shouldn’t be running. And the reasons are becoming more clear by the day. Problem one is that much like Mitt Romney, he is one political generation too old. Both last held office in 2006, and seem to have stayed there. Problem two is the anguished ambivalence, reminiscent of Mario Cuomo and Adlai E. Stevenson, which does not bode

Conakry, Guinea -- It´s hard not to be nervous, standing outside the Ebola isolation wards. The wards are a cluster of unassuming white tents in the middle of a large field, not far from the center of the city. Each is just big enough to hold around 10 cots. Two layers of zippers keep the outside from getting in, and more importantly here -- the opposite. Nobody goes inside the tent without spending 15 minutes putting on isolation gear.

As she gave her account to the police, several bruises began to appear, indicating recent trauma. Tests would later find semen on her underwear.

WASHINGTON — It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered. Mrs. Clinton played an energetic role in virtually every foreign policy issue of President Obama’s first term, advocating generally hawkish views internally while using her celebrity to try to restore America’s global standing after the hit it took during the George W.

The head of the CIA just made a secretive journey to Ukraine—to do what, he won’t say. But the answer could change the power equation in the hottest of geopolitical hotspots. The Obama administration is now considering a new policy to share more real-time intelligence with the interim government in Kiev after pressure from some in the U.S. military, Congress and U.S. allies in Ukraine. Over the weekend, CIA director John Brennan met with Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and First Deputy Prime Minister Vitaliy Yarema to discuss the formation of new, more secure channels for sharing U.S. intelligence with the country

BOSTON - It was a shocking slaying in a Boston suburb that sometimes goes years without one homicide, let alone three at once. The victims´ throats had been sliced in a home on a tree-lined street, marijuana and cash strewn over their bodies. The investigation languished for more than 18 months until just a few days after the Boston Marathon explosions, when the FBI identified the suspected bombers as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and his brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, ethnic Chechens who emigrated from Russia to the U.S. about a decade ago.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.
