    If you want to consider Obama care a winning factor for Obama then your mistaking people wanted a change but not one for the worst Obama care was a big negative for Obama . And Glenn Beck done what he did on purpose and is more then likely planning to do the same thing next year I wouldnt be surprised if he has something planed for Martin Luthur King day to cause a stir .

    If the worker choses to get another job from an employer, the employer would only get the incentive for this employee after a year. IF the worker doesn't make a year in that company, the company would not gain from the incentive.

    Considering the Republicans have done everything in their power to stop the Dems. I'm surprised they accomplishied this much. .Armstrong; Once EVERYONE is covered for health care, it will prove to be one of the best things done by congress since social security. And I hope everyone remembers Republicans were agaist it just as they were against SS.

    You guys need to take a stance and stay with it. You can't call yourself the "land of the free" and demand that the government creat jobs. That is called Communism. A free country is where the people creat the jobs. You guys are living the illusion of freedom. Your young people are sent to foreign lands to die for nothing but corporate interests. You think you own your homes when the mortgage is paid but try not paying land taxes and see what happens.
    You start wars all over the world in the name of protecting America but who caused 911? Saudi Arabia did but you attack Iraq. Then you wonder why does so much of the world think we are stupid and hate us? You are up to your necks in debt and give aid (that you don't have to give) to corrupt countries giving aid and shelter to terrorists bent on the destruction of America. DUH!!! Wake up America before it is to late.

    In regard to the jobless in this country and the vets coming back home to find they are also jobless. This country will never come back, until all the jobs that have been farmed out to other countries by big business are brought back to this country as it once was. Trade deficits are appalling. We have lost jobs to other countries, have joblessness, and take in all their junk, which we don't need, and it ends up in landfills to boot. Almost all of these products coming into this country, are warranted for one year. That's about all they are good for, then they end up in the landfills. Our people need the jobs. If we have to pay more for goods because they are made in America, so be it. Perhaps then, we will buy what we really need and not spend hard earned money on junk sold to us by advertisers who's only interest is putting money in their pockets. They don't cry if the kids are starving, stuff their mouths with worthless junk food that their parents pay good money for. Stuff their rooms with worthless junk, it puts money in the pockets of big business. They don't care how soon it ends up in the garbage that is overflowing our landfills. Big business wants us to want one of everything that is manufactured, whether we need it or not and they pay to see that we are bombarded with their advertisements, day and night.

    The plan for jobless veterans is excellent. They should be getting any help they can. Better to pay for those plans than more welfare or "stimulus" packages that only put us deeper in debt. Get out of Iraq, get out of Afghanistan, put the billions that have gone into that mess, into our economy, into new enterprises for energy sources. No more protecting big business such as the oil industry.
