We used to fire presidents for such things back when we had some ballz..

Inconvenient Fact= No president to date has been removed from office via the impeachment process.


Weve been through THAT before Wade. MANY have been through the impeachment process and some left over that very "this or that" offer.

Congressmen have recently been recalled in COLO too.

How many more lies will it take for some of you??? Yes repubs lie,, but you can NOT deny the fact that obama does it on a regular basis.. You ALL heard him say RED LINE in his speech.. Today he tells us "I DIDNT SAY RED LINE" Really????

Inconvenient Fact= No president to date has been removed from office via the impeachment process. (BTW- this is a documented, proven fact. unlike your claims that the president lies 'on a regular basis.') Have a good Day Ron.

Wade as a former supervisor i gave a "choice" to a few folks. The same "choice" Nixon had.. Leave or we toss you out the door.. Now i dont know what you call that in your world,, but in mine,, technicality of paper work or wording aside,, means BOOTED...Nixed.. Otherwise fired. And for MUCH LESS than obama has done. MUCH less.

Whatever is wrong with our healthcare system, at least we're not this bad

The country's 1999 constitution guarantees free universal health care to Venezuelans, who sit on the world's largest proven oil reserves. President Nicolas Maduro's government insists it's complying. Yet of the country's 100 fully functioning public hospitals, nine in 10 have just 7 percent of the supplies they need, Natera said.

The other nearly 200 public hospitals that existed when Chavez took office were largely replaced by a system of walk-in clinics run by Cuban doctors that have won praise for delivering preventative care to the neediest but do not treat serious illnesses.

The woes are not restricted to the public system.

Venezuela's 400 private hospitals and clinics are overburdened and strapped for supplies, 95 percent of which must be imported, said Dr. Carlos Rosales, president of the association that represents them.

The private system has just 8,000 of the country's more than 50,000 hospital beds but treats 53 percent of the country's patients, including the 10 million public employees with health insurance. Rosales said insurers, many state-owned, are four to six months behind in payments and it is nearly impossible to meet payrolls and pay suppliers.

Worse, government price caps set in July for common procedures are impossible to meet, Rosales said. For example, dialysis treatment was set at 200 bolivars ($30 at the official exchange rate and less than $4 on the black market) for a procedure that costs 5,000 bolivars to administer.//

I don't know how true this is but Nader said the Canadian legislation totalled
13 pages while the ACA was 2000 with another 2000 worth of regulations.
And they wonder why they can't get it straight?

Maybe the problem isn't as simple as money.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Wednesday met with frustrated Senate Democrats, some of whom fear the disastrous rollout of his signature healthcare law could complicate their already difficult re-election fights in 2014.

The Obama administration has weathered intense criticism since hundreds of thousands of people have seen their health insurance policies canceled because they do not meet new benefit requirements, despite Obama's pledge that Americans could keep their current plans under Obamacare.

The fallout has been exacerbated by the fact that these people cannot shop easily for insurance alternatives on the malfunctioning website, HealthCare.gov.

Obama, joined by Vice President Joe Biden, sat down with 16 Senate Democrats, 15 of them who are up for re-election next year, many of them facing competitive races.

One of the senators, Mark Begich of Alaska, issued a statement after what he said was a two-hour session. He said he expressed his frustration at the difficulties involving the website that has not worked properly since going live on October 1.

"It's absolutely unacceptable in this day and age that the administration can't deliver on the promises it made to all Americans because of technical problems with a website," Begich said.

Looks like the Demo Senate crew is showing solid signs of total mutiny.

and the Supreme court even admitted that they didn't read all 2,700 pages!
...comparing reading it to cruel and unusual punishment!

Six months from now the technical glitches will be resolved, the majority of Americans will be happier with their heath coverage than before ACA, and the Republicans will be back to talking about Benghazi.

Because as we all know, Scalia is the Supreme Court! He's actually all 9 Justices!

I've heard that free breast and prostrate exams are available through TSA at all airports. Now other agencies are getting into the healthcare business.
