Uh oh.....you're going to make a certain left leaning ideologue from Marietta very upset.

We rate his claim Pants on Fire.
ASKNOT look again. It aint even running !!!!
In most dictionaries, misspeaking is defined as a slip of the tongue. Is it really misspeaking when the president repeats a poll-tested pledge dozens of times, often reading from prepared remarks on his teleprompter, straight into the camera? Is it really a slip of the tongue when the White House puts out videos and talking points centered on this false claim?
Obama adds an ‘if’ to his ‘you can keep your plan’ promise

Just for YOU, Kendall - Here's another one I posted over at the PKB N&S. Why not tipsy over there and read it TOO?
No one that sits atop ANY of the Obama-related scandals EVER seems to be disciplined BUT, he get's rid of upper echelon military officers like he's pulling weeds. STRANGE!
Dear Kendall - Those are MY original statements that I "have to copy/paste between the Times and N&S".
What's it to you that I use that tactic to spread my opinion? Are you related to oneill?
"WE pay more for everything!"
That is true and of course it's the fault of the disorganized govt fighting within itself.
To be honest, I always wished we would cut back a little on military spending and invest (wisely) back into our own population.
That's true though it might be better if it was done regionally instead of state by state. I say that mostly because a state like Wyoming or WV might not have the proper competition like Calif. or New York would.
But Kendall, as part of the GDP, we spend almost double what most other countries do, or will soon. We are at 17.6%, next is around 11%. WE pay more for everything! Common sense should state that we pay less than everyone. Being the largest consumer, we should have better leverage to demand better prices, yet our system doesn't allow negotiating or competition.
Kendall, true! But that is why you look at their systems and use them at state levels. Our states conveniently mimic the size of alot of govt's with successful systems.
@asknot- I would like to add that not all nations are equal. Many of the nations that have good health care and very healthy people are considerably smaller than the US and invests more of it's wealth into its people's health care.
It stands to reason that a nation like the US with over 300 million would have a more difficult time incorporating nationalized healthcare than someone like Canada at 30 million.
Besides, EVERYONE can afford health care, unless you have a decent paying job and health insurance, then there's the issue. The poor and uninsured don't pay a dime, never have. We paid it for them.
Come on Kun...is it do hard to come up with original statements that you have to copy/paste between the Times and N&S?
Yes, because its running SOOOO HORRIBLY in other nations that have it. You know, the ones that outrank us in health care, while paying HALF what we pay for it! lol, Jokes on them, more expensive is always better.
correction; (at) all what it appears to be.
For those of you that believe the 'end game' was to provide health care coverage for those that couldn't afford it, your eyes WILL BE opened.
Their are few utilities for a government to install and begin to affect control over other areas of 'the govern ds' lives anymore than government indentured health care.
THAT is exactly why Obama doesn't appear too upset about the shortcomings involved in launching his signature legislation.
It IS NOT all what it appears to be.
