The ONLY things that would lead us back to “American greatness” is unity and WORKING
TOGETHER. Politicians and people of our nation, please stop the paranoid, blaming and
divisiveness, work together to find the BEST in all policies. Make things work and we will all
benefit.  We have to stand together and stop blaming and start working together for the greater
good.

The ugly duckling is the $53 Trillion Dollars of under funded gov’t liabilities…SS, Medicare/
Medcaid/gov’t pensions.  This is why the USA will just like Europe.  It’s coming and nothing can
stop it.  It all started when the gov’t gave money away for doing nothing…now look at the
results. Not pretty.  Wonder if any politicans read the WSJ…

I agree with Gators. Just this morning was a story on Boomberg News web page about a huge
fraud case in Florida with a state approved Medicaid provider….ripping the system off for millions
of dollar by, smoke & mirrors accounting.
No matter what the investigators found in wong doings the business got fined large $ and was still
allowed to provide Medicaid services.
Also the story pointed out the $425,000,000,000 Bllion that is spend on MEDICAID alone each
year. That is a super amount of $$ for many thousands that will never work and are using
Medicaid as a way of life. I know personally of a local “youth” that got 5 GOLD CROWNS…via
Medicaid…....on his BABY TEETH…...paid for by some weep easy social worker….nuff is a nuff

Did Bloomberg mention that before Rick Scott, Republican, was elected governor of Florida, he
was implicated in one of the biggest Medicare fraud cases in history. Scott was CEO of
Columbia/HCA when it was fined $1.7 billion and found guilty of swindling the government? Later,
Scott invoked the Fifth Amendment 75 times in a 2000 deposition in a later civil case.
And the gold teeth story is amusing. Too bad it is not true. Racist, but not true.

“Gate” You’re right, THAT is why the NATION voted for Presient Obama 4 years ago and voted
for him again… People don’t want to go back to the policies that FAILED taking down the entire
World into an international recession that has never before been seen.  We the People are
sanely choosing a different path and rejecting Republican extremism and bizarre paranoia and
divisiveness.  It will be better for us as a community if you and all Republicans can please pick
yourselves up from the pouting and get on with helpning rebuild America after the Bush
administration.  We know it stung. Who among us hasn’t had something happen that we didn’t
like!  Even if you have a boss that you don’t like, you can still find a way to suck it up, work
hard and do a good job!  If we all work TOGETHER we can make America strong again. 
Thank you.

Hotfishmt: You are also correct.  The USA did not get like this overnight. It all started will all the
politicans and their givewaways. If people cannot see we are headed right were Europe is,
then they have blinders on. It started mainly with LBJ and his great society.  Not so great now.
Many are to blame and many Republicans to.  Many people want something for nothing.  One
crazy fact during with last recession people who were laid off or fired got 99 weeks of
unemployment…that is very wrong.  Just sit back and see how this unfolds…but spending more
money is NOT the answer…

Too much Nanny State. We need term limits but is there even one politician that would run on
that platform? No.

Happy Thanksgiving:  To all.  In 1789 the bill was signed into law by George Washington. It
was a day to thank god for all our blessings.  Now the gov’t wants to take god out of almost
everything.  I’ll stick with George on this one!

Clarity this is an EPIC FAIL on a mindset…..First off GWB was a major “Progressive” nuff said.

The “FAILED POLICYS” started in Clintons second term when he signed the repeal of “Glass
Steagall” . When folks Believe the propaganda from EITHER side we are doomed as a Nation. and
if you really think that either party is looking out for us “common folk” well, they have won the
propaganda war. neither side really cares two cents about you, otherwise we would have a
balanced budget with a REAL and solvent HC and SSI system, lord know that the richest country
in history could afford it.

Spending Bubble:  The USA budget for 2013 is 2.2 Trillion dollars…big numbers mister.  In
2008 it was only 868 Billion…and people wonder whats going to happen.  It is very clear that a
big recession over even depression is coming to a town near you.  Illinois for one has $200
billion is debt….and $95 Billion in unfunded pension liabilities. Were is the money going to
come from??.  What did Obama do for the Illinois…he help create this, and almost everyone
wants to look the other way.  I hope you saved your money because you are going to need it.

Indiana:  Has a big budget surplus…why you ask?  Think about all the right things to do. They
don’t promise to giveaway money they don’t have…they constantly don’t give dead beats more
money. They depend on themselves…not Obama….that’s only one state away..but it is
diiference between night and day and we know here Obama came from….Do they call Illionois
the sucker state??
