“LOL I proved you wrong and you still argue. Priceless! YOU ARE NOT LISTENING and I did give you a link to the brits looking to partially privatize. Time to wake up missy.

If you are not going to read the links provided, stop asking for them. OH and you do recall the beating laid out in 2010 right? Right?”

“None of them quoted any group or MP wanting to eliminate the NHS. Becasue there aren't any. Do you recall the whupping Romney/Ryan got in 2012, running on the issue of Obamacare?

Who's your health insurer, by the way? What state?”

“We shouldn't be so harsh on the traitor Bush. I'm sure he is a nice guy despite how he destroyed our country with the great recession and war in Iraq.”

“Why wait for history. This guy will be in prison for his crimes. And they are many and we are taking notes. There will be more than just Obama going to prison, half of the Democrats in office need to go with him.”

“History will not treat low-info voters well.

The filibuster is a rule, not a law. The acting majority can change any rule with a simple majority vote.

Don't want a rule change? Don't abuse the rule. If history reflects that you play GOPer twenty 20 a session, don't imagine it's kosher to play GOPer 400 times a session.

The 60 vote threshold was adopted after the Supreme Court selected George Bush as POTUS. Senate GOPers gave this concession because the party failed to outright win the presidency. The original concession was that only controversial nominees would be subject to filibuster. Democrats lived up to this agreement, filibustering only 3 of Bush's judicial appointments. GOPers have blocked or at least attempted to block virtually every Obama appointment.”

“Traitor? Reid? How does getting business done equate to treason?

Closing down the government because you don't like a law, now that borders on treason. Preventing a budget agreement with Democrats, causing huge cuts in the military budget, now that smacks of treason. Attacking the President, undercutting him as he negotiates with foreign governments, that's treasonous. Refusing to allow the President to fill open court vacancies, sounds treasonous to me.

Please look at all the TGOP objectively before throwing around words like treason. You'll find they fall into the treason category frequently.”

You don't know who I 'put my stock in'.

The issue is wage disparity. The fact that you do not understand that does not make you look intelligent in this discussion. Pivot fail.”

“Still no links, huh? How about this. The UK is complaining about healthcare costs that are HALF of what the US spends per capita. And although some want changes, such as I want Obamacare changed to permit a single-payer option, nobody is urging parliament to eliminate the NHS.

“HA HA HA!

There is more than a little irony attached to the Obama administration’s determination to pursue socialist, EU-style “solutions” to America’s problems, even as the European Union is coming to grips with the bitter realities such socialism produces. And while Greece and its financial problems receive some media coverage in the United States, there is a much bigger story flying under the mainstream media radar: in Britain, Prime Minister David Cameron has introduced a bill seeking to partially privatize the National Health Service (NHS). Why? Because the British government is “hoping to avoid a Greek-style financial meltdown.”

“Buchanan never said McDonalds will go out of business. He said it would cost jobs. It was inferred McDonalds from the left wingers..

Here is what the left misses in the Minimum Wage debate.

You all believe that if minimum wage goes up, those making more than minimum will also get a raise. THAT IS NOT THE CASE. And those who have worked their way up in the low paying jobs will be the first to feel their dollar be worth less.

Grimm even eluded to this when asked why dont we make it $20 an hour? He said that would then cause some jobs to be lost but "WHEN EVERYONES WAGE DOUBLES OR TRIPLES TO $20 THERE WOULD NOT BE JOBS LOST.

What Grimm fails to realize is he pointed out the biggest error in the argument. If in the end, everyone gets a raise based on minimum wage going up, the only thing you will have raised is the dollar amount defining poverty as the dollar will be worth less.

If this where not the case, the last time they raised the minimum wage, those working at McD's would have been able to afford a house.

You libs govern on what sounds "right" not what actually works in practice.”

abbienormal on Dec 8, 2013 at 14:45:36

“Average hourly wage at McDonald's is $7.81. I don't think anyone who has "worked their way up" in fast food is worried about getting hurt by an increase in the minimum wage.

Same with home health care workers.

Get a grip. By definition, minimum wage jobs do not offer the opportunity to "work your way up".”

7-dems continue to lie and say people like it yet every poll shows less than 37% like it.”
