Scary.

Not as scary as what happened to the middle class in the last year of the Bush administration.

Uhhh, I am not quite sure how you could justify that statement LB. It can only get so high before it crashes and after that happens I am pretty sure it will be way scarier than whatever happen during the bush administration. xD

Interesting, I do wonder though about the statistic : Unemployed and right below it: Actual Unemployed, where does that info come from? Similarly with the actual number of undocumented immigrants, that seems like a highly specious number for something that seems entirely unknowable by the very definition of the term.

why does Fex have to ruin things with rational questions?

This is politics, your brain has no place here!

If you think these numbers are scary, just wait till all the Obama huge government plans kick in.

And the clock will burst if Obama(s)care gets shoved down our throats.

But what the hell, more government in our lives. They have shown us already they have the capability to run things.

Such as the post office, social security, medicare and other epic failures of the government to run a business adequately without running up huge losses, which then get passed on to the tax paying citizens.

Again, it is easy to spend money, when it is not yours.

I was listening to the radio this morning, and heard that the Gov. is trying to be able to access anyone's checking account I believe who uses the proposed healthcare. How out of control is this going to get?

just did a quick google search, think this might be it but don't have time to read it through.

Some more scary stuff is the AARP commercials on the radio trying to brainwash you that the Healthcare reform is not a bad thing... it's so full of propoganda, it's funny to actually think they want people to take it seriously.

FYI, in these tought times, the Obama's are renting a $35,000 / week house at Martha's Vineyard. Cash for Clunkers FTW!

I have no time to read over the whole bill, so can someone summarize a reason, if it is given, for that? I really don't care much about the healthcare aspect, but invasion of privacy could be a step up to something worse.
