Employers to drop millions from health care plans as Obamacare premiums spike, CBO projects

Strangely enough in respect to the deficit anyway, Clintons bitter pill is becoming more palatable to swallow:

 

 

An analysis by the Center for a Responsible Federal Budget, which crunched the numbers on the available plans of each of the five major presidential candidates still in the race, found only Ohio Gov. John Kasich, on the GOP side, would cut government spending, by about 2 percent.

 

Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton would oversee a 2 percent spending hike over the next decade, GOP front-runner Donald Trump would raise spending by 3 percent, Sen. Ted Cruz would boost it by 6 percent, and Sen. Bernard Sanders wants a massive 33 percent hike in government outlays.

 



No mention of the interest that will come due on Obama's debt and the 1 trillion that isn't budgeted yet but has to go into the nuclear triad?Maybe it'll just go away after the election.

A lot of conservative partisans will gloat when they see this, but I actually have a different take.  As someone who is not caught up in the partisan bullshit and realize most mainstream candidates are full of it, I am actually pleased to hear that Clinton is listening and has a plan to alleviate some of the atrocities of Obamacare and seeing how she is going to be our President whether we like it or not, this is indeed good news!

Well maybe this will force us all to finally implement some type of desperately needed health care reform:

MIT's Gruber called to testify at D.C. Obamacare hearing

Gruber has collected as much as $6 million in taxpayer money for contracts with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Resources, the Department of State, the Department of Justice, the US National Institutes of Health and several states, including Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Vermont, which this week announced it was severing ties with the professor.

I think what Kurt was saying, my belligerent friend, is that setting yourself as "against" other people here is ultimately a loser's game. Disagreeing with others here leaves open the possibility of actual dialog.

Nevertheless, kudos for using the "I'm a Rebel, Dottie" gambit so early in the game. If we gathered up all the people who claimed to be alone in this hostile environment but are determined to fight the good fight as long as the ammo holds out, we could invade some small island nation and take all their rum and cigars.

Man, you are displaying a really aggressive attitude, and though you certainly seem to feel entitled to run roughshod on whomever, I'm not getting it. As I asked another member, please educate me, make this a teachable moment, tell me what I did (factually) that drew your ire....

That's reasonable, isn't it?

 
Okay, for the benefit of the doubt I'll give you 60 seconds here. Your style, tone, demeanor and even wording are very reminiscent of another member who came in, got all offended by the bad rabid liberals (band name!) around here, eventually got really belligerent and then threatening and was tossed out for bad behavior.

These two responses are not really the polite innocent intro you claim to have come in with before being rudely responded to

It was noticeable enough that a lot of people other than myself noticed it. 

Despite the claims, we really don't mind dissent. We clearly enjoy a good, even heated, argument.  Don't play the victim though and own it when your wrong.  

I'll go first - I'll give you the benefit here and say Sorry. I hope I was wrong. It's been a long week for me and I'm easily agitated right now. We can start over at 0 if you like. It's up to you know to see which way we go with it.
