The Romney camp is feeling increasingly desperate.  They thought that Ryan was a safe pick.  Undoubtedly his tax returns proved that to them.  But they seemed to have never checked his voting record.

FACT:  The Akin Ryan Amendment that Romney condemned today was co-sponsored by his running mate.

FACT:  The Obama Campaign took 700 billion out of Medicare  Read More...

"Obama Responds To Romney Welfare Accusations: 'You Can't Just Make Stuff Up'

For Obama to make such a statement shows the level of psychological damage he exhibits. Romney is a FELON! Romney paid NO taxes for 10 years! Romney was responsible for the cancer death of a woman SIX years after he left Bain and didn't care!

The Repubs want to put blacks "back in chains!" No taxpayer funds will be used for abortion in Obamatax! You can keep your current plan if you like it! You can keep your doctor if you like him! No family making less than $250,000 will pay a dime in new taxes under my plan!

But more instructive, we now know that MUCH of his AUTOBIOGRAPHY is MADE UP! He is so unaccomplished that he has to INVENT incidents for his AUTOBIOGRAPHY!

The man is a JOKE, but the joke is on us!

President Obama is NO Joke! The fact is... you just can't stand having a Black gentleman as your President. You can't handle the fact that a African-American is college educated with a law degree. You aren't willing to comprehend that he was elected by fellow Americans for the Presidential office and you fear he may get re-elected. That man who is the joke then is...you.

Cute. But Obama never said not one single one of those things.

You're as bad at this as Mittens.

I am afraid you might be wrong on that. He did say SOME of those things.

Many are concerned about corruption in welfare which could cost millions. If we turn over power to the republicans, billions will be given to the 1% welthiest americans as it was during the Reagan administration.

"Health expenditures in the United States neared $2.6 trillion in 2010, over ten times the $256 billion spent in 1980. [1] The rate of growth in recent years has slowed relative to the late 1990s and early 2000s, but is still expected to grow faster than national income over the foreseeable future.[2] Addressing this growing burden continues to be a major policy priority. Furthermore, the United States has been in a recession for much of the past decade, resulting in higher unemployment and lower incomes for many Americans. These conditions have put even more attention on health spending and affordability. [1]
Since 2001, employer-sponsored health coverage for family premiums have increased by 113%, placing increasing cost burdens on employers and workers. [3] In the public sector, Medicare covers the elderly and people with disabilities, and Medicaid provides coverage to low-income families. Enrollment has grown in Medicare with the aging of the baby boomers and in Medicaid due to the recession.[1], [4] This means that total government spending has increased considerably, straining federal and state budgets. In total, health spending accounted for 17.9% of the nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 2010. [5] "

"The U.S. health care system is possibly the most inefficient in the world: We spend twice as much per person on health care as other advanced countries, but we have worse health outcomes, including a lower life expectancy. The government, through programs like Medicare and Medicaid, pays for approximately half of the country's health care, almost all of which is actually provided by the private sector. Thus, the bulk of our projected rising budget deficits are due to skyrocketing private health care costs.

The CEPR Health Care Budget Deficit Calculator shows that if the U.S. can get health care costs under control, our budget deficits will not rise uncontrollably in the future. But if we fail to contain health care costs, then it will be almost impossible to prevent exploding future budget deficits."

This why health care reform is necessary.

"--Until the Unity is threatend by
Those who have and who have not -
Those who are with and those who are without
And dangle jobs like a donkey's carrot -
Until you don't know where you are
When Are you gonna realize
The class war's real and not mythologized
And like Jericho - You see walls can come tumbling down!
Are you gonna be threatend by
The public enemies No. 10 -
Those who play the power game
They take the profits - you take the blame -
When they tell you there's no rise in pay
Are you gonna try an' make this work
Or spend your days down in the dirt -
You see things CAN change -
YES an' walls can come tumbling down!
Excerpt from a song by :The Style Council, which proves very prophetic to what's happening to the GOP/TP . As The Wall Come Tumbling Down.

And if so, then what's your gripe?
You should thank Obama.
If not, get off your lazy hiney and get a job, yourself.

Where is Gov. Romney wrong, Obama??? You ARE taking $716 billion from the medicare budget to pay for Obama care...You ARE taxing Americans 10 years for 6 years of Obama care....then what will you do after that? Anyone with a brain, (of course your voter's don't fit into this catagory) know's Obama care, will inflate into yet another government disaster, it will not be cost effective or efficient...just like most government programs...And Obama, you DID sign a bill relaxing rules regarding work while on welfare...now someone getting a massage, reading a book etc, is considered to have met their "work" requirement's to continue getting their checks...So Obama...Gov. Romney is right, and you are wrong...again...You just keep trying to turn America into a 3rd world, government dependent society...But with any luck, you will be given the boot in November, then you can pack your bags and head back to the THUG capital of the country....Chicago...where you can reunite with your other thug pals, David Axelrod and Rahm Emanual....BTW...great job your doing in Chicago with the murders Rahm!!
01:18 PM on 08/21/2012
I believe that Romney is wrong on exactly the same points that you are, where you repeat lies that have been repeatedly been debunked. And people aren't dependent on the government in 3rd world countries. In 3rd world countries, government is barely existent, people have to fight just to survive, and the economic powers that be (whether drug cartels or multinational corporations) hold all the power. You know, a Republican paradise.

"At the time it was approved in 2010, CBO estimated the law [Health Care] would reduce the deficit by $143 billion from 2010 to 2019. And CBO estimated that last year’s Republican repeal legislation would increase deficits by $210 billion from 2010 to 2021."
