When Government works- Dem's in charge

What a contrast. People who understand how to make an efficient, resourceful and responsive government work needs to be in charge. People who hate government need to be put out to pasture. Put the grownups in charge and for you Ann(Romney) Obama is a grownup as opposed to your pathetic husband.

Tech4Obama

Source: Huffington Post

Recent polls from Gallup and Pew have been pretty hard on President Obama. So given a recent blast of support from the tech community, perhaps the administration should start relying on SurveyMonkey instead to get the electorate's pulse.

Left-leaning tech luminaries and execs have come out to back President Obama with a new website and a series of online videos. The initiative, called "Tech4Obama" or T4O, mainly consists of interviews with tech personalities like LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman, Dropbox founder Drew Houston, and Craigslist founder Craig Newmark giving their reasons why they endorse the Obama presidency and explaining how the president encourages innovation, especially in Silicon Valley and other tech hotspots.

This is really no surprise. I am in high tech and we work hard, have vision, MAKE SOMETHING, and like people with vision. We are not like the Romney's and the Wall St. crooks who make nothing and are just leeches. Meg Whitman is not high tech. She is from retail and I bet she fails in high tech.

Obamacare- what it really is -Obama must tell this story in the next debate

Obama should really tell the story what it really is. Because we have a system in place to insure only healthy people we had to make a compromise to insure young people who have preexisting conditions that are long term problems.
i know a young women who has two terrible life long problems one is an auto immune system disease and another is an issue with her reproductive system. This person could never get insurance on her own. A second example is any Young person with a congenital problem or diabetes.

None of these people are insurable under the prior system.. Since we don't have single payer we have to deal with what we have a for profit health system that tells these young people to go jump in a lake.

Obama had to make a deal to go with a mandate to get coverage for these people. It is for the young who can't get insurance. It was the only way they could get covered.
