“Hatred? The guy is using a cost calculator from his state. What he is saying is correct. $400/month for a 26 year old making 23k per year. That has nothing to do with hatred.”

“Wow. I just used that calculator and put in my family's info. It would be $300+ more per month than what I pay now (which is better coverage).”

“The problem I am having with this stems from platform platitudes like this:

"We support constitutional protections and judicial oversight on any surveillance program involving Americans. We will review the current Administration's warrantless wiretapping program. We reject illegal wiretapping of American citizens, wherever they live. We reject the use of national security letters to spy on citizens who are not suspected of a crime. We reject the tracking of citizens who do nothing more than protest a misguided war…We will revisit the Patriot Act and overturn unconstitutional executive decisions issued during the past eight years."””

“I don't see anything in that link that shows Bush was using this same tactic. The only one I have read about that was similar was disclosed to the press by the Bush Admin...it wasn't a secret. I don't agree with any of this regardless of who is doing it, though. ”

“This place is filled with rabid internet psychics that are so delusional and are 100% certain if you say even the tiniest thing negative about PBO they know exactly who you are (W voter, Mitt supporter, racist etc.). It is truly amazing and pathetic at the same time. God forbid we take the below platform stance to task when articles like this turn up.

“Program fell under court supervision in 2007. Following public uproar, the administration placed the program under the surveillance of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). In 2008, Congress expanded the Act to allow both foreign and domestic surveillance “as long as the intent is to gather foreign intelligence.” The measure also provided “retroactive immunity to the telecom companies that assisted the Bush administration.”

Congress extended the law through 2017. In December of 2012, Congress voted to reauthorize The FISA Amendments Act until 2017. The Act “allows federal agencies to eavesdrop on communications and review email” with a warrant from the secret FISA court.”

“Read it again. IF we are hit again and Obama refused to sign THE ALREADY PASSED bill you and the other republicans said " its ok, if you have nothing to hide this shouldnt bother you" YOU would go ballistic. Im guessing Obama has information that we dont.
