“to clarify your position, you welcome defense spending remaining at high levels, and resort to rhetoric to pat your choice conservative Party on the back for the 'appearance of cuts'...

but look no further than Obama's 2014 blueprint that highlights your actual agenda...

cutting federal employee's retirement benefits and imposing chained cpi, and oh look, there are bills in the works adopting those policy proposals to save defense from sequestration cuts.

we've seen the games obama plays with defense budget, his followers simply go along with the shell game...”

“Wow, you really think you know what I think, huh? I said I welcome the upcoming sequester cuts to the military, and would like to see additional cuts of AT LEAST 1/3, and if that money went to infrastructure plus the money saved by ending failed prohibition, I would be happy to pay more in taxes to balance the budget. How you take that and think that "Obama's 2014 blueprint that highlights your actual agenda" is preposterous. You want to know what I think? Ask me. You have no idea what I think. I'd like to see cuts larger than 1/3, but I'm being realistic. Actually, even cuts of 1/3 are unrealistic given the current makeup of our government. I don't support cutting any social spending or cutting benefits of any kind. Our President is no Progressive, and I don't support almost anything that he has proposed or is willing to do. You should stick to telling people what you think, because you're terrible at reading minds.”

“Actually, you are wrong, Vinny. Democrats want to pay their fair share. Remember your hero, Romney? He paid less than I did. And he didn't want to release his back taxes even though his father started that practice. And there can be only one reason. He has been taking every loophole there is to avoid doing what most Americans do -- pay their fair share. You have nothing to be proud of.”

“Well, I welcome the next round of sequester cuts to military spending. I would be happy to pay more taxes if we cut military spending by at least 1/3, ended failed and wasteful prohibition enforcement, and replaced that with investments in our infrastructure.”

“so that tells me that ACA has nothing to do with cost inflation, since it is beginning this year.

note - raising minimum wage doesn't do anything to fix problem, it would only feed the insurance industry, who would simply change policies and billing practices to increase cost volume... the law stipulates percentage standard for benefit/premium, it doesn't prevent them from increasing the volume of costs, eg creating new billing items, changing coverages... this is how the shell game works.”

“other ways to deal with inflation driven by insurance, the last thing you'd want to do is give insurance more power, but that's what conservaDems did, they effectively stripped out any possibility of economic innovation, instead they embraced the neocon strategy to manipulate the market for the gain of a few at the expense of the worker. of bending cost curve down, rather than lowering health care costs, is pure conservatism. nothing progressive about it.”

“google "Working for health care in 2013: workers’ health insurance cost burden still grows faster than wages"

ACA will never be able to fix that...

conservative Obamacrats could care less...”

gardnern on Nov 30, 2013 at 13:17:25

“Maybe we need to increase the minimum wage and find other ways to help wages grow for the 97%. As to the facts on the cost burden:

"If you calculate the increases on an annual basis, premiums have risen by about 5.8 percent a year under Obama, which is less than half of the average annual rise during the nine years before Obama took office."
