“I’m going to need another term to finish the job,” - Obama

“Bottom line is this: Over the past three years we’ve made progress. People aren’t feeling all that progress so far because we had fallen so far. But the trajectory of the country at this point is sound,” - Obama (2011)

Obama couldn't give a rat's behind about fixing some stupid computer progam.

What Obama really meant was that he needed 4 more years to finish off the Republic!

@Goosedroppings:Didn't OBOZO tell Americans we could keep our plan and doctor, and prices would go down? Do you think Sebullis is doing a great job? Do you want to help pay for the web site disaster? Obozo, his entire staff and you also are the world's biggest losers. You don't care about American people, the only thing you think about is Democarts and how friggin great they are doing. "NOT"

"At the same time we’ve got 2.7 million more Americans living in poverty than in 2009, and fourteen million more on food stamps–the most in American history. Finally of course there’s the looming train wreck of ObamaCare itself, that was supposed to cost less than $900 million but now, according to the Congressional Budget Office, will cost double that over the next decade, or $1.8 trillion–and don’t be surprised if that estimate doesn’t continue to roll upwards.

And that’s just the beginning. The numbers of people getting kicking off their employers’ health care plans and dumped into the exchanges is going to soar once the moratorium on the employee mandate ends next year, and millions more are going to find out that the “affordable” health care options ObamaCare gives them will cost far more than they were ever told, with deductibles of $6,000 and more.

So forget the ObamaCare website. What we really need is a solution to Blue Screen Liberalism.

"After spending almost a trillion dollars in economic stimulus, borrowing trillions more from the Chinese and others, and three waves of printing money disguised as quantitative easing, we all got an economy that so far this year barely registers growth over 1% , with the lowest employment participation rate since the 1970's–a far better guide to what’s happening to the job market than the formal unemployment rate.

In fact, under Obama for every three Americans over sixteen earning a paycheck there are two who aren’t even looking for work–90 million of them and counting.

Then there’s Obama’s record on income inequality.

After four years bemoaning the widening gap between rich and poor, and raising income taxes and expanding programs for the poor including food stamps, fully ninety-five percent of the income gains during the Obama years have gone to the top 1 percent of earners–that’s compared to 65% during the Bush years.

"The ObamaCare website is just the latest illustration of how liberalism promises to fix problems if we just spend enough money, but actually leaves a bigger mess than when it started. The fact is Big Government liberalism is crashing all around us, not just in America but around the world (just ask anyone living in Greece or France or Venezuela). When a computer system crashes beyond repair, it produces what software programmers call the “blue screen of death.” We are now living in the era of Blue Screen Liberalism, and this website debacle epitomizes the Obama administration’s record on virtually everything else. For example, unemployment. People point out that after spending $634 million, ObamaCare still can’t get a website that works. "

con't.... Guess what? Billy Tauzin, this time in his role as head lobbyist for PhRMA, had a huge role in writing this Senate health care bill. He again assured the bill would be a massive giveaway to drug companies by cutting a secret, backroom deal with Obama to keep out drug re-importation and direct Medicare price negotiation. In addition, this time, Tauzin also won another big giveaway to the brand name drug makers by securing an extremely long exclusivity period for biologic drugs." (FDL)

So according to Dem's Bush was an incompetent imbecile yet Obama seems to repeat a lot of his "mistakes".

Thanks goose for pointing that out to us!!

In reading goose's excerpts from DailyKos I guess the biggest point I get out of it all is that Democrats learned NOTHING from the mistakes of the previous admin! Despite the constant disparaging of Bush, Obama has yet again duplicated many of Bush's errors.

"One of the biggest complaints Democrats had about Medicare Part D was the influence then Republican Rep. Billy Tauzin had in writing the bill. He worked with the drug lobby (PhRMA) to make sure the bill existed primarily as a massive giveaway the drug industry by keeping out drug re-importation and Medicare direct drug price negotiations. The lack of these two provisions until recently were the two big complaints Democrats had about Medicare part D, and a big part of why almost every Democrat said they voted against the bil. The promise to fix these two problems featured prominently in Barack Obama’s presidential campaign.

goosey says "The 2010 Health Reform bill (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) began to address the coverage gap by creating discounts on brand-name and generic drugs purchased within the gap range. Between now and 2020, the gap will gradually be closed to a point where it is completely eliminated".

As the health care system of America, that you despise, slowly changes to become your Progressive utopia, the finally reality will be known. Only then the progressives realize the failed promise.

duhhhhhhhhRAT what is your major malfunction? Cant you read?

Bush lied and sold the program for $153 BILLION. Everyone knew that could not work. And 1 month AFTER it was passed, they were proved RIGHT.

"The following month, the administration announced the program would actually cost $534 billion to implement, nearly 40 percent more than advertised."

In your delusional world of blind hate, you don't even know what you post....educate yourself Mr "engineer"..........LOL

"Second, spending would have been much higher during the Bush presidency if Democrats had their way. To take just one example:

Democrats proposed creating a prescription-drug program as an alternative to the one Bush proposed that would have cost a projected $800 billion over 10 years. The Bush prescription-drug law was originally expected to cost half that amount — and today it costs a third less than initial projections because it uses market forces to drive prices down (see here and here)."

"Democrats Double Bush's Proposal on Prescription Drugs By ROBERT PEAR Published: March 21, 2001

Democrats raised the stakes today in the debate over prescription drug benefits for Medicare recipients, saying they would seek more than twice as much money as President Bush requested for such coverage in the next 10 years.

In his budget blueprint last month, Mr. Bush proposed spending a maximum of $153 billion on drug benefits in the coming decade. But Senator Bob Graham of Florida, speaking for many Democrats in both houses of Congress, said today that this amount was 'grossly inadequate.'

Mr. Graham and Kent Conrad of North Dakota, the senior Democrat on the Senate Budget Committee, said Senate Democrats would seek $310 billion to $330 billion for Medicare drug benefits."
