The IRS stuff is nasty. But whether you can really tie Obama in some more direct way remains to be seen.

He is in charge, he sets the tone, the buck is supposed to stop with him. If a CEO used all the excuses he does about "the government is just too big" the board would fire him for not being able to handle the job.

Sorry, but when you are at the top and the IRS does what it did based on your (Obama's) similar pattern of attacks, well then the leader at the top has to own up to what happened. Whether or not Obama personally came up with or approved it directly makes no difference. He has to answer for it.

Totally agree, AZ. Our side warned everybody, and now they're surprised that what we said is finally coming true.

157 White House visits by the IRS commissioner is a pretty good indicator. Then there is yet another lie by Stephanie Cutter, this time about her presence in the White House meetings on IRS and, supposedly, Obamacare. And lest we forget the White House meeting with the head of the Treasury employees' union on the day before the targeting was implemented. Hillary Clinton's articles of impeachment against Nixon were based on far less material than that.

I actually upped my assessment on the IRS over their conference spending. I don't think the public will tolerate more abuse than what was already there. That didn't help them out.

Just the latest abuse of this type by an agency under this administration. Who got caught a few years back doing the same thing? Some purchasing agency or something?

Also more proof that this admin is incompetent about claims that sequester will cut needed services. You spend like this and at the same time say there in no money for the WH tours, you just look like a clueless group who can't manage a budget.

Bob, I could not find any cases where the Bush administration intervened on behalf of a child to move to the front of the adult organ transplant list. Would it be possible for you to back up your accusations with some links to news articles or names of children that were moved to the front of the list?

I am not a supporter of the great majority of 'Obamacare'. I have been involved in transplants for over two decades. 'Obamacare' has nothing to do with how organs are allocated. That being said, there should be more transparency as to how the priority list is generated. Either forunately or unfortunately, depending where you fall, certain organs can only go to certain patients due to blood and tissue type matching. I can stir the pot a bit by mentioning that prisoners are allowed to be on the list..... How about this ethical conundrum.... You are next on the list, but are a rare match..... You kill someone who matches you.... do you get their organs while awaiting trial?

Organ transplants are tricky things with many considerations, size of patient being only one. Transparency another. It's fraught with ethical conundrums. Do you give a liver transplant to a patient with alcohol induced cirrhosis? (After all he was born with a perfectly good one, but ruined it. But then alcoholism is a disease, albeit the only disease you can get yelled at for). Do you give a kidney to a Jehova's Witness if they refuse all blood products? (they're going to need a transfusion at some point or you will lose the patient and donor organ. And no they don't accept autologous [their own blood stored in advance] transfusions).

None of this has anything to do with Obama. I've been on our hospital's ethics committee for decades. Who gets the organ is an old discussion. I guess you can call our committee a "death panel" and I as the chair the "head executioner". But we've been around long before Obama (and Sara) and will be here after them.

Oh FFS. I have no sympathy for BHO, but bringing organ transplants into this is really tangential.

Large part of the problem is simple: organ donation is run as a moronic charity, you have to jump through hoops to sign up and get nothing in return. The choice to disallow post-mortem donation should be given exactly as much respect as a demand that your old car not be recycled and left out to rust naturally instead because it held emotional significance to you. It's a cultural problem, we need to HTFU and stop catering to everyone's little feelings.

The free-market solution is obvious, option to offset health insurance pricing by accounting for average body value in case of death, and a moderately regulated open market for live donations. Life extension or QoL improvement through medical means isn't in any fundamental way different from that provided through products and services of other industries.

The socialist-friendly solution is also obvious, opt-out with ineligibility for subsidized healthcare for people who do opt out. I wouldn't actually put it past BHO administration to implement something like that - the mechanism is already in place. If they do, it will be the only good thing to have ever come from this bunch, although they'll likely find a way to ruin even the best things.

Yes, the fact that the same person who gave that statement is in virtually total control of Obamacare and the tens of thousands of pages of regulations that have already been issued and the additional tens of thousands of pages to come. And among the powers that control entails is to grant waivers in thousands of cases. We have already seen that in, say, bestowing exemptions to certain favored businesses and other groups, but not to less favored applicants.

Yeah, ObamaCare sucks.

The United States is fairly unique where government officials (congress, senate, the President) represents its lobbyists (insurance and health care) more than it actually represents the people they are supposed to represent. Money talks. Politicians essentially can be bribed into a position, and they somehow get elected, because the other side is no better.

Sad, really.

People want security in their health care. Essentially, most people want to have a way to protect themselves when they are sick that won't cost them an arm and a leg. Corporations who offer health insurance as a benefit are pressured to keep costs down as their benefit costs go through the roof. If you pay health benefits to a family, you are looking at adding $15-20K in costs per FTE, which represents about $10-12/hour in work. So you may pay your employee $8/hour, but you are actually paying $20. Meanwhile you are competing with the rest of the world who has socialized health care which is much cheaper. For example, here in Canada, corporations who offer health insurance offer an extended health coverage that covers pharmceuticals and "extended health" - ambulances, chiropracty, etc which costs about $200/month per employee. So immediately, you can see where the cost of benefits has an effect on compensation packages.

Those people who think that the private coverage and the state of health insurance before Obamacare are delusional. It's a key reason why the United States loses jobs and can't compete globally anymore. The United States has to drive down the costs of health care overall. It can do so by looking at other models instituted in other countries (not Canada, necessarily). Yeah, the insurance companies and health care providers will scream, but it has to be done. Politicians have to have the balls to say "no" to their lobbyists and do what is actually good for its constituents -- drive down the cost of health care.

ObamaCare isn't the way to do that. It's a bunch of overregulated bull made to accomodate their lobbyists. It won't drive health care prices down. It will just drive up administrative costs and will be an unfunded liability to the government.

If politicians can come together and make a law that is good for the people, then something good could have come out of that. The problem is that ObamaCare is a Democrat production, and the Republicans do not want to see ObamaCare work, because it will cost votes in the next election cycle.

In government, you are supposed to look after the your constiutents first. In Washington, it's the lobbyists that seem to come first.

Obamacare was passed to be the camel's nose under the tent on the way to sociized medicine. Why people think this is better I have no idea.

If we got insurance reduced to only cover what "insurance" is supposed to be and return to where you pay for the regular stuff yourself costs would fall fast and quality would go up as people started to shop for the best of both. Or what they can afford to buy.

As to "the USA can't compete" I say nonsense. Europe and Cuba to name two have sociized health care and neither is tearing up the world economy.

Health insurance companies operate on a 3-4% margin. The insured have no motivation to shop for best prices. Most insured hate their insurance company and love it when they can stick their carrier with a huge bill.

U.S. innovation in the pharma, biotech and technology industries play a major role in improving health care around the world. It's just that simple. Don't see a lot of innovation out of Canada, yet Canadians love to brag about their healthcare system. A system that is a direct beneficiary of U.S. capitalism. hehehe

Why Doesn't the Republican party make decisions to make sure they win the next Presidential Election?
Then they can get rid of Obamacare.
All the recent decisions will insure a demo President unfortunately.

The Republican House just voted to deport all the Hispanic "dreamers" Gee, Hispanic vote down the drain
The Republicans are now attacking Susan Rice even though she has support of Mccain and Lindsey Graham, Repubs just cant deal with a demo Woman as National Sec head. Hmm, lets also make sure the Women vote goes down the drain.
A report just came out on how Republican Party is viewed by college students. It aint pretty. Is the Repub party doing anything to change these perceptions, of course not. Young voters down the drain.
Repubs against Gay marriage, The gay vote down the drain.
Repubs cater to the Religious right and insult Atheists. There goes my vote and I'm a Republican.

Gee whats left , old white people that are dying off.

Gee, looks like Repubs love Obamacare, they certainly are not doing anything to make sure it can be repealed, in fact its the opposite, Their actions make sure it wont be repealed.

Unless the Republican party can change and attract voters instead of turning them off, Obamacare is here to stay.
DEAL WITH IT.

Nothing like a sample size of one. With that sample size, you'd be surprised I guess to hear the FACT that Canadians live 3 years longer on average than Americans. Us Canadian's health care is so horrible that we're just dying for the American system. Yeah.

The excuse that Americans are unhealthier doesn't wash. We're healthier -- we take care of ourselves because we have easy and "free" access to preventative care, with absolutely no co-pays and no deductibles. In the past two weeks, i went in for my annual physical, got all of my bloodwork done, and had my followup appointment, all for the low price of nothing. If I break my arm, I don't have to worry about the $1,000 - $3,000 deductible. I pay nothing. The medical office and the lab swipes my health card and put in the codes to the single system (that everyone uses in the province) and they get paid. Pretty simple. For that service, we all pay more provincial income taxes.

I didn't say anyway that the Canadian system *is* better. It's not better for the 1-2% of Canadians who would like to pay and can afford immediate health services, and they accomodate that through medical tourism. And of course there are a few stories of Canadians who go somewhere else for treatment because the treatment is too new or isn't covered (typically because it is an alternative treatment that is too expensive) under the provincial plan, or they had to wait too long.

Don't see a lot of innovation out of Canada



We're 1/10th of the population of the United States. The only thing that US capitalism does for Canadian health care is drive up costs. Canada contributes plenty of innovations to the world of medicine.

A report just came out on how Republican Party is viewed by college students. It aint pretty.


And this says something about these people who go to college even though they don't belong there and have no interest in learning, just so they can try and look down on their fellow man (it's a democrat thing), instead of acquiring a useful trade they can actually earn money with, not default on their subsidized loan and campaign for more handouts.

Do you seriously believe the Repubs wear the white hats and Dems wear the black hats.


Haha...this line is typical. Somebody makes a point about the Dems' lack of concern about the lives lost in Benghazi, and this is your response? LOL

No, he just disagrees with you. I love how he "must be on drugs" just because he has a different viewpoint.

Dude, Its Fox News. Wow, you drank the Kool-Aid. Pretty unfortunate. Gotta stay away from BS news outlets such as Fox and MSNBC. I could care less what Fox or MSNBC consider important stories. This is the age of the internet, I determine what I want to read. I love the news. What I consider important are stories I am interested in reading. Liberal media, conservative media, who cares, with the internet, the slant is meaningless, you can do your own research. Sorry, not reading Benghazi and IRS, tiny stories in my universe.

Look, on a serious note on the media and what stories I consider important to me. I live in Tampa. Scientology has a huge presence in my area. They pretty much own and control downtown Clearwater. Its an incredibly destructive cult. Its destroyed many families and people. Some media outlets have the balls to report on scientology, St Pete Times, ABC, BBC. Most are afraid due to litigation and scientology fights back with dirty tactics. Fox news never reports on scientology because of Greta. Really Unfortunate because Fox News could really help a lot people by reporting about the criminal nature of scientology.

So sorry I'm not reading about Benghazi, I try to keep up on scientology. Finally some negative press about Narconon, one of their fronts.

Taking a walk around downtown Clearwater is like no other downtown. Very weird. Its cult central.

Would you say that there are a lot of people there who would drink the Kool-Aid if they were ordered to do so?

It's not a matter of belief. College is full of kids who only went there as a matter of prestige and cultural identification (leaving aside basket cases who were outright after partying), not to acquire the skills and certifications for their intended employment.

Republican economic policies cater to the people who seek to provide for themselves through productive employment or business. Like tradesmen, engineers, entrepreneurs. In other words, people any country actually wants and needs, not entitled whiners who must be catered to because they happened to grace this soil with the miracle of their birth.

I can't stand Greta, she makes my skin crawl.
She's sooooo Liberal and a Scientologist to boot.
FOX leaves them alone because its a losing battle.
They'd be in court forever.
It does not suck to be me.

Sorry for my over reaction. I"m part of the Asian American community. I went to college and I can assure you my Asian American college buddies did nothing but study and work hard. Its part of our culture. To party at school is to dishonor our family. Yes a lot parties in college, but our community did not participate in that part of college life. My Father was a Doctor. My Uncle is a Doctor. Education is very very very important in the Asian American community. In fact Newt Gingrich said after Rommney loss, "We lost the Asian American Vote and these people don't want nothing from the Govt" Newt was right, Repubs did lose our vote, its because our community and culture place a high value on education and Repubs don't.

PS I'm actually bi-racial but consider myself an Asian American.

Yes they would drink it. Its very sad. All the scientologists can be easily spotted downtown, They all dress the same and tend to move from building to building in large groups. The whole cult is there. When I walk around downtown, its like being in a twilight zone episode, bizarre.

I'm not sure where you get that republicans don't place a value on education.

I see more that the GOP lost Asians because so many Asians live in ca and just trend normal for ca voters.
