      President is telling Grayson, to take notes. Grayson is his pit bull. Grayson has a spine and backbone. We need more like him. Send your fighters out President Obama. They need to kick Cantors', Boehner, Mitch, McCain, Bachman, DeMitt, and Hatch's but#. Get rid of the obstructionists. Bitter, old, men.

      Karlen, Progressive Liberals always have smoke or something up their nose, toxin floating around in their little brain...what is left of it.

      They can't think for themselves. Duhhhhhhhhh! Trillions? they get confused.

      Dan Rather on Chris Matthews show quoted: "But He couldn't sell watermelons if you gave him, if you gave him a State Trooper to flag down traffic..."

      "....when I voted against the cap and trade bill, the phone rang and it was the chief of staff to the President, Rahm Emanuel, and he started swearing at me in terms and words that I hadn't heard since that crossing the line ceremony om the USS New Jersey in 1983." Rep. Erik Massa.
      "..I've had union leaders tell me point blank we are not going to contribute to your campaign unless you vote for this health care bill. Is that or is that not a bribe? At the heart of everything we face in this country today, at the heart of the destruction of our democracy, at the heart of our inability to solve our problems, at the heart of the inability for us to actually pass to the next generation of Americans something greater than we received from our parents is the incredible corruption of money in politics today. It makes me weep when I realize our nation is being destroyed from within... You cannot effectively govern this country without the consent of the governed. The entire nation has said let's re-write the health care bill, let's find what we can agree upon. No, no, no, no..." Rep. Erik Massa

      What a CHANGE. The best is yet to come my lib friends. You got what you voted for.
      Obama-f.....g-nation in full trottle. A congressman is being destroyed because of his point of view. I think, i've seen it had happened somewhere in the past. USSR comes to mind.

    9. Karlen. 50 months ago

      if that doesn't bother you, I don't know what will. idiot.
      You, Max, have been infected with moronism.

    10. Karlen. 50 months ago

      who gives a f......... what Bush did.
      your f...... president is desperate to pass the bill not for you to have health care ins, idiots. the benefits don't start until 2018, but your country would be in a hole for good. But, of course, you don't give a shit. As long your Obummer gives you shit for free you don't care.
      what's going on in the WH, the level of corruption I have never seen in my life. And, I've seen a lot.
      DL, you need to get up and move your fat ass a little instead of sitting in front of your PC all day. The more you talk the more you show how dumb you are.
      Leave my name along.

    11. Unalienable Rights by GOD- not Executive Order 50 months ago

      max, You, the one who post nothing but HATE.... Brain dead Hypocrite!

      Ram, dead fish, Emanuel is TOAST

    12. Karlen. 50 months ago

      It hurts that some f...........g lazy people don't give a f.....k about the country as long as they get free shit from the government like the government owes them something or the government has the money.
      f..................g trailer trash.

      "Our cost-cutting measures mirror most of the proposals in the current Senate bill, which reduces most people's premiums and brings down our deficit by up to $1 trillion dollars over the next decade because we're spending our health care dollars more wisely," Obama told an audience at Arcadia University in Glenside, Pa., a suburb north of Philadelphia.
      "Those aren't my numbers," Obama said to the rising applause of the estimated 1,300 in attendance. "They are the savings determined by the Congressional Budget Office, which is the nonpartisan, independent referee of Congress for what things cost."
      But the budget office did not say the Senate health care bill would save $1 trillion over the next decade -- or even close to that figure.

      It estimated the bill would save $132 billion from 2010 to 2019, leaving Obama's "next decade" estimate $868 billion short.

      PATHOLOGICAL LIAR IN CHIEF.

      I'm in disbelief at your stupidity and disrespect, KarlenM. Who are you addressing in your comment with regard to receiving "free shit" from the government? If you don't like the way this country is being run, please, just ask your relatives back in your country and they will pay for your one way ticket back to your country of origin. I'm not here to convince you of anything, but you need to do your research and stop crying on these photos. You're an "unbelievable" drama queen. You don't represent the majority of the Americans that want nationalized health care reform.

      I'm sure of one thing, you are pathological person.

      Webster's definition of a pathological person: caused by or evidencing a mentally disturbed condition.

      You're this kind of person. You're always commenting, and loving the sound of your own voice and then acting as if you truly cared. I believe the reason why you choose to consistently comment here is because you cannot find a balance in your life, Your mind is being eaten alive by all the media you choose to watch and possibly read. You are the product of bad media craziness.

      Please do us a favor, please go away. You talk too much, without saying anything concrete, just the fears that have been instilled in your mind from the media you watch. You can have this, we don't want it.
      GO AWAY!

      TAKE-A-LOOK-U.S. healthcare reform
      Mon Mar 8, 2010 10:34pm EST

      President Barack Obama intensifies his attacks on health
      insurers and administration officials ask the industry to justify
      premium increases as the battle to reform America's expensive
      healthcare system enters its final stage.

      Hitting the road to rally support for the reforms, Obama
      shrugs off warnings of dire consequences in congressional
      elections in November for Democrats who support his plan and says
      failure would leave intact a broken $2.5 trillion healthcare
      system that is ravaged by greedy health insurers.

      that's what you get when the FED is in controle of de US dollar and not the Treasury Departement
      that's what you get when a fool starts a war on terror, spending billions of dollars. Dollars which could be spent on the economy etc.
