  • Consumers are BIG loosers. The poors are BID winners. Obama and Bush, the biggest deficit creator in U.S. history. It will come back and bite us later.

  • Okay, I'm completely fed up with the socialist agenda that is bankrupting all of us. Social Security, Welfare, Medicare, Medicaid - all programs that were designed to be emergency backstops have become guaranteed pensions for Americans that won't save and take care of themselves. I've worked very hard on my education, on my job skills, on my savings, on my investments. I don't think I owe anyone who hasn't done the same or at least served my country. So I propose we change the right to vote in this country.

     

    If you don't have a high school education, have served in the armed services or own property, you cannot vote - period.

     

    No more busing in illiterate welfare recipients to vote in the socialist agenda. No more taxation without representation. Enough.

  • A good start but we still haven’t busted the monopoly the insurance companies have on controlling the cost of insurance.

     

    Sorry guys (insurance co’s) but I have been in your position before and know that the only thing that will convince you to accept more reasonable profit margins and to reduce the cost of operations is a truly competitive option IE: public option, NOT a sister company with the same incentive to maintain the high margins and inefficient operating systems.

  • At least in Bush's administration, the war was a huge expense- whether you believed in it or not. In this administration, it is strictly just making your marks or greed by the democrat party and president guiding this unwarranted huge deficit. NOBODY WINS when the power lays completely with 1 party. Nothing the other party can do or say will make any difference. I will think VERY hard before voting for another Democrat for a long while. Good luck when some run.

  • I think Obama is doing just great -given what he's been handed. He one of the most intelligent Presidents we've had and in time we may see positive results. I hope the best for his bold moves and his passion for trying to help all people.
