I like free stuff, too.
But I also believe in working and paying your own way.
My son is 18 and has worked since he was 14, first on a friend's hay farm, then as he got older as a schlepper in a construction company digging and hauling buckets of dirt for 2 summers.
He know knows and respects the $$$(not that he should but you get my drift :) )

Some only want to take, not contribute.
Obama care doesn't affect the poor or the rich - what about all the people in between?
If it affected the poor you know they would have voted against him.
The poor are in favor of taxing the rich higher b/c it's a form of getting even with them - the revenge Obama spoke about
(he knows how to reach into the hearts of his base)
Why do the poor hate the rich?
Why do poor folks think those who earn money should give it to them and why are they not willing to earn their own or get an education - which BTW is not necessary to become rich - just look at Andrew Carnegie

I grew up in NYC - I know the mentality, it's not just the poor, it's the immigrants as well.
Different gene pool from those who came over and built this city.

when the good paying jobs left our towns do to things being made over accross pond and technology,breaking up of unions,THIS CAUSED A LOT OF PROBLEMS WE HAVE TODAY.
parents are not home and working longer hrs and welfare is now solution do to lack of jobs that pay enough to live on.

back when i startted on railroad,WE DID NOT MAKE MONEY.
but we all had great paying jobs and cars,nice modest homes and put kids thru college.
in came the BUDGET or the folks that said, HEY WE WANT A BUDGET!!!

so jobs were cut.
this caused people to move and not fix up homes. kids now cant afford college so they get pell grants.
dads are not home, working away . mothers too.
when i started to work a mans pay was enough to put a kid thru college and mother stayed home.

it came INFLATION and jobs going to china.
ross perot said this would happen.
guess who caused it?
president clinton and his buddys the REPUBLICANS, yes you heard it, his buddys in last term.
dont think for minute that obama and repubs are not going to be friends, THEY WILL. :o

Steve.... At this point, it doesn't really matter..... Consider any one of them was a better choice.

"N" used to call me on my private line and asked what I thought? I'm sure he called you too. Maybe I should have taken him seriously...... Kicking myself in hind sight.

kyle, you are right on money.we republicans have got to stop in fighting between MODERATE ones, ME and way to right repubs.
we are doing no good tearing us apart.

i think john boeuher saw that and SAID, WE HAVE TO WORK WITH OBAMA,FORGET OBAMACARE ,WE ARE NOT INTERESTED ANYMORE IN IT ,THERE IS MORE TO WORRY ABOUT.
i say,LETS GIVE OBAMA CARE A TRY, IF IT DOES NOT WORK THEN LETS GO AFTER OBAMA.
but i like idea i can NOW get insurance from any insurer and not be turned down.
right now i have 1300 dollar deductible. isnt that awful.
i pay 385 a month for insurance.no dental etc.
now they have to take me at other insurance co. like BLUE CROSS. :wink:

How do you prevent business from seeking the lowest production costs?? Give it a few years and after the cost of production rises in foreign countries, you'll see business wonder back on shore. I know these cycles disrupt lives, but we've been through it before. Japan tried insulating its home markets from competition in the 1980's and they still haven't recovered.
