But it’s NOT Republican Obstructionism – ‘Executive order from Governor Jan Brewer blocks IDs, benefits for illegal immigrants’

‘At our 25th college reunion in 2003, Grover Norquist — the brain and able spokesman for the radical right — and I, along with other classmates who had been in public or political life, participated in a lively panel discussion about politics. During his presentation, Norquist explained why he believed that there would be a permanent Republican majority in America’.

‘One person interrupted, as I recall, and said, “C’mon, Grover, surely one day a Democrat will win the White House.”

‘Norquist immediately replied: “We will make it so that a Democrat cannot govern as a Democrat.”

Mitt Romney Lies #58 – ‘Romney on Regulation’

‘On CBS Wednesday, Mr. Romney reacted to the substance of Mr. Biden’s comment—namely that the G.O.P. intends to unchain Wall Street. He said “Of course, we have to have regulation on Wall Street and on every street to make sure that our economy works well, so it’s factually inaccurate to begin with.” He added: “Look, no one is talking about deregulating Wall Street.”

‘Megadeth Singer – Obama ‘Staged’ Aurora Shooting Massacre’

Mitt Romney we’ve had 4 YEARS of this.

When are YOU going to speak out against that?

Mitt Romney – “I’m not going to tell other people what to talk about.”

From : http://www.nj.com/us-politics/index.ssf/2012/08/obama_romney_dont_bite_on_chic.html

“Mr. President, take your campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago,” Romney said while campaigning in Ohio’.
From : http://nation.foxnews.com/2012-presidential-race/2012/08/15/romney-weaponized-tells-obama-take-your-hate-back-chicago

“Back in my country, my president … he’s trying to pass a gun ban, so he’s staging all of these murders, like the ‘Fast And Furious’ thing down at the border … Aurora, Colorado, all the people that were killed there … and now the beautiful people at the Sikh temple.”

‘He continued, “I don’t know where I’m gonna live if America keeps going the way it’s going because it looks like it’s turning into Nazi America.”

‘Obviously, Mustaine is not an Obama fan … and recently bashed the President during an interview with Alex Jones … saying, “With all of the proof about his birth certificate being fake. And you see the signs in Kenya that say ‘the birthplace of Barack Obama.’ Hello?! C’mon, guys. How stupid are we right now?”

‘Ryan And The Constitution’

So as long as we’re ‘better’ then other Countries, it’s OK?

Money has so corrupted our political process that it IS about money not people.

And the poor have little voice and figure not at all into the ‘bottom line’ in any corporations profits.

Mitt Romney ‘Mostly’ Lies #57 – ‘Mitt Romney said Barack Obama robs Medicare of more than $700 billion to pay for Obamacare’

‘Romney: Campaigns shouldn’t run ads that fact-checkers say are false’
“You know, in the past, when people pointed out that something was inaccurate, why, campaigns pulled the ad,” Romney said on the radio’.
From : http://supersaiyan.newsvine.com/_news/2012/08/09/13205058-romney-campaigns-shouldnrsquot-run-ads-that-fact-checkers-say-are-false

‘Here’s how Romney put it in an interview with 60 Minutes shortly after selecting Ryan’:

“There’s only one president that I know of in history that robbed Medicare, $716 billion to pay for a new risky program of his own that we call Obamacare.”

‘Here, we’re checking whether Obama “robbed” Medicare of $716 billion dollars to pay for Obamacare’.

‘Our ruling’

‘Romney said, “There’s only one president that I know of in history that robbed Medicare, $716 billion to pay for a new risky program of his own that we call Obamacare.”

‘The only element of truth here is that the health care law seeks to reduce future Medicare spending, and the tally of those cost reductions over the next 10 years is $716 billion. The money wasn’t “robbed,” however, and other presidents have made similar reductions to the Medicare program’.

‘We rate this statement Mostly False’.

Blog Running – ‘Romney/Ryan Medicaid cuts don’t put off pain for seniors’

Every Conservative I know is jumping up and down with joy! Paul Ryan as most say, is a ‘real’ Conservative. And what do they cite the most? The ‘Ryan Budget’.

I understand the allure of a ‘balanced budget’. And in a perfect World, we should have one.

But there are conswquences to our actions. Cutting the budget to balance it will make the budget look good.

But what about the people?

‘Many middle-income Americans who may be unfamiliar with Medicaid end up relying on the program in their old age because they exhaust their assets. Medicare doesn’t cover long-term care so they turn to Medicaid, which does’.

“Most of us could end up in Medicaid whether we imagine ourselves that way or not,” Rother said’.

‘Two-thirds of nursing home patients are covered by Medicaid, some six million Americans. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan both have plans that will slash that coverage. Romney has largely avoided providing specifics for what he’d cut, but his balanced budget proposal, including his tax cuts for the wealthy, would mean that programs like Medicaid would have to be cut drastically: 29 percent in 2016 and 59 percent in 2022. It basically means that Romney’s Medicaid cuts would be deeper than Ryan’s’.

‘Ryan’s plan has been all spelled out: $800 billion in cuts to Medicaid in the next decade. That’s a one-third cut in projected spending. By 2050 it would be cut in half. He’d block grant what was left of the money to the states, forcing them to decide where to put their scarce resources: taking care of poor children or taking care of the sickest elderly. Now we’re talking death panels, created by the GOP’s social Darwinism’.

‘Bottom line, all the but wealthiest seniors will get screwed, sooner rather than later’.

‘They’ll wonder what will happen to them if they need to spend their final years in nursing homes without Medicaid. It’s a very grim prospect under Romney and Ryan’.
