And that about sums it up Dr. F.


They also aren't particularly fond of the cbo report that concluded 3 million jobs were created by the stimulus.

So the latest cbo report on the ACA says it will cost the government less, cover more people, and reduce premiums compared to previous estimates.

Looks like some folks have not been praying hard enough.

More bad news for those that hate Obamacare, from Forbes magazine. They have not been previously noted as supporting Obama, or his programs.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/brucejapsen/2013/05/25/obamacare-will-bring-drug-industry-35-billion-in-profits/

Obamacare Will Bring Drug Industry $35-billion in profits.
“The (Affordable Care Act) represents a dramatic transformation in the fortunes of pharmaceutical companies in what is the world’s largest market for prescription drugs,” said Joshua Owide, head of GlobalData’s industry dynamics team in a statement to Forbes.

“This reform was inevitable in the US, and while a number of the changes will negatively impact pharma’s fortunes, the overall balance could be positive, thanks to an additional 32 million formerly uninsured citizens becoming potential customers, resulting in up to $115 billion of new business over a period of 10 years.”


And to add some early proof of this forward looking statement, drug industry giant Johnson & Johnson reported strong 1st ¼ earnings today that beat expectations. One financial writer made this observation:

J & J prescription drugs were the most impressive with an 11% jump in revenue to $7.5 billion. The patent cliff hasn't hurt the company as much as expected, and we may be seeing the benefit of having more insured patients via Obamacare

I'm sure glad my tax dollars are helping Big Pharma to hire more lawyers.

ps./ Sorry. But I don't think Big Pharma Profits is any measure of success of publicly funded healthcare. I'm not likely to change that opinion, either.

Hard to argue with data, eh libs? SYG is clearly SAVING LIVES in Florida! Look at that sharp drop in the line there. Correlation does not equal causation, but that's some pretty impressive correlation! SYG supporters should have this pasted all over social media.

HDesert, you're right it is hard to argue with data, and that graph is a challenge.

Is that the only data of relevance?

We've never really figured out why republicans are wrong about everything.

Inadequate potty training?

Poor genetic material?

A head injury?

Obama is doing a pretty GOOD job of helping AMERICANS...

Why the Republicans refuse to admit it only proves how Anti-American they have become...

So what that graph is really saying is that after SYG, Florida saw a dramatic increase in righteous justice.
