I don't know guys some states are doing so well that they may actually help the unemployment rate for the entire USA all by themselves. Florida, North Dakota, Texas to name a few. I wouldn't hold your breath. For example Florida is doing really good. Small biz activity is up like 100% over last year and last year was good too so it aint like they are comparing against a bad year. Truck drivers are busy and doing well too, another good sign. It would be interesting to see the results of the unemployment if you remove like the top 5 states, ouch.

This poll is not accurate. Everybody knows his sample is conservative biased. Obama will win easily just wait till after labor day that's when dems wake up and start to show support. The polls always show a republican victory this early because pi$$ed off republicans are the only ones paying attention right now. But look at intrade it is more accurate http://www.intrade.com/v4/markets/c...ntractId=743474

Think back to 2010, his polls were showing double digit advantage to republicans for lots of races and by the time the election got here they barely won and even lost some races. I wouldn't celebrate this poll unless it was like a 30 pt lead.

Don't get sucked into these polls republicans always poll well this far out from election day and then two weeks before the election the dems start paying attention and they end up winning. I think it has something to do with the fact that most people paying attention this far out are conservative so the polls will show republicans then about two weeks out it changes. Republicans would need like a 20 point lead right to overcome this phenomenon. Six points right now is nothing that mean republicans will get beat by about 7 points. They need double digit lead right now to be competitive.

In ohio he is still popular. We have high union population and lots of entitlement people that think the left is the way to go because they are going to take care of people. The people here honestly think that we are better off with obama than a republican. I drive crowded high ways to & from work each day and I am already seeing tons, not just here and there but tons of obama12 bumper stickers it feels like fall already on my way to work. I also think the dems have done such a good job at making republicans look bad with the party of no or party of rich that people are afraid to admit they lean right. People don't realize that every time congress does anything signs any new law, it is costing people that work that's why republicans say no. They think the gov't can just create all these agencies and oversee every little nook and cranny with no costs. My favorite thing to do is when I meet someone that I think leans left I will bring up a policy that the left stands for and just through it out there and say what do you think and they almost always say that it is wrong or uneconomical etc, but then I tell them that's your people that think that way and you don't even know it. The people that vote left vote for them because they think it is the cool thing to do because they see them on tv talking about how they are going to do this or that for some poor person or how they are going to make millionaires pay their share and that's what the people want to hear, but they don't realize what happens on the back end to make that happen.

Lets get real, people have very short memory, Obama is going to win by the same margin as 2008. The small group here on RR thinks Obama will lose but the masses do not think like that. The majority think rich people (over $200k) are just lucky or were born that way and they don't deserve that money. The majority thinks the gov't should provide everything from a cell phone to a job and then money for retirement. The dems know how to make republicans look stupid by making republicans talk about gay marriage, birth control and pot. Once republicans start talking about all that it's over because it gets them off topic about how left policies are bad for the economy and how they don't really create jobs.

I want to come to work and be surrounded with people that want to be there and are there to make positive contributions to the team / product. I want people on my team that want to win in the market place by having a better product or service than the competition. The people who show up to work just for benefits are a drag on the organization. They are the ones that when you walk past them they are constantly on facebook or sporacle and when you ask them to do something you get a million excuses. I would pay more to rid the work place of those losers. It is a miracle that any companies can get anything done because people are so lazy.

corporate taxes are too high in usa and to attract businesses they should be more inline with other countries. It's better to have lower business tax rates to get more businesses here and paying taxes then it is to keep them high and pushing them to other locales.

To be fair though our money is worth less now than in 2008 so $4/gal is more like $2.80/gal and we are used to paying these prices so it's not really news like it was in 2008. Gas has been $3 something for a long time so $4 seems like meh, $10 bucks extra per week, so what thats one day going to lunch. You wont even feel it.

esco here are the pay raises I think he was talking about. He said 35% over 8 years and if you do the math its more like 41%. Just take any value and apply each pay raise for the 8 years then calculate the delta from the ending salary to beginning salary it is 41%

http://usmilitary.about.com/od/mili...storicalpay.htm

Starting Pay = $10,000

Year Pay Raise New Pay
2000 6.20% $10,620

The government should not prop up any business that runs itself into the ground because they will never learn a lesson. If they know the government will bail them out then they will never become a successful business. It would not have been the end to american cars, it would have forced them to become profitable businesses like they should be. If they can't stay alive without help then they should go away. If there is enough demand for those cars they should be able to stay in business without bailouts.

Bush spent too much on wars but if you spend two mins on researching what caused the financial collapse it is easy to see when the gov't started telling banks to loosen thier credit restrictions to get more home owners you will see that was before bush. Banks were "encouraged" told to loosen lending restrictions which means let people with little chance of repayment borrow money so they can have a house, the american dream. So they did and people were able to go get a loan for $300,000 without proof of income and good credit. What did they think was going to happen. So now banks are more cautious and now you have people on the left calling them racist because they wont lend to people with bad credit which tends to be high minortiy groups.

Look at this chart: http://research.stlouisfed.org/fred...s/GFDEBTN?cid=5

Look at the slope of the line from ~ 1980 to 2008. The slope of the line is realatively the same for all those years. Which means the rate at which those administrations added debt was about the same. Then look at 2008+, wow. For someone who critizied previous prezs on how running up the debt is bad for country and unpatriotic etc etc he sure did take it a step further. And to all those clinton lovers, he was the same as reagan and the bush dudes at adding debt.

Starting to think this is like pro wrestling, lots of shouting back and forth but really they are all friends out of the ring.

The government cannot create a single job all they can do is get out of the way and let businesses do their thing. A government created job is not a real job because it takes so many private sector jobs to fund that one gov't position. Plus when the government creates a job they overpay for that position which just digs a deeper hole. Like when they "saved / created" 200,000 $40,000 salary jobs at the price of $236,000 per job. Stop looking for the government to help you out, help yourself it is so much easier and faster.

I here what you're saying about the debt but I don't think there is any intention of paying it off and as long as countries keep buying our debt they must think it is not that big of a deal. I don't think we will ever pay back the trillions of dollars and I wonder if we really have to. As long as the country can make it's monthly payment that is more important. Think of this. I know people that have $240,000 in student loans and the monthly payment is $1,800 per month and these guys live in $500,000+ homes and the payment is around $3,000 per month. These are sucessful people that make $200,000 per year and after taxes they still clear $10k per month so they can afford the monthly bill but they cannot afford to pay off all of their debt at one time. So if you think of the US as one giant rich person 22 trillion might be an acceptable debt level because of the amount of money it makes.

Let me ask this question. Is a strong economy really a good thing? What i'm getting at is yeah for the 10 million or so that will get a job in a thriving economy it is good but the other 200 million or so is a good economy really a good thing? When more people have jobs they spend more, when people spend more it raises the price of everything and since more people have money it actually lowers the value of a dollar because that dollar that was hard to come by in 2010 is now a little bit easier to get in 2012. So really nothing changes, yeah a few people have some jobs but everything costs more. Does anybody think like this or am I a crazy?

If you don't like your income then do something about it, you are in charge of your earnings.

Even if we had a pipeline and even if the epa was not here and we could drill all we want it all boils down to how much gas we want to use. So even if an american company could go out tomorrow and start refining oil and supplying it at gas stations it would not take long for the price to get to $3.40 a gallon or whatever it is today. Because a business works like this say you sell gasoline, you start your price out at $1. With the level of demand out there it will sell out quickly so you will run the financials and see that you are selling a lot of units and making little profit so you raise the price because it is better to make $100 selling 10 units than it is selling 100 units. You will do this exercise until your unit growth rate levels off which will end up at a price that the market can bear about $3.40 per gallon.

It's a business and the price should be based on what the market can bear not on what you think is fair. If you don't like it take the bus, carpool, ride a bike, work from home, get a hybrid, get a motorcycle.

High gas prices are actually a sign the economy is doing well because we have "somewhat" of a free market. If consumers could not afford $4/gallon then the gas stations could not charge it. Government getting involved in the free market just makes things worse. A government is not capable of running a business so they could not run an oil company either. If uncle sam tells exxon hey you cant charge more than $1/gallon then exxon will say ok at that price I am only going to supply you 25% of the oil your people need. You can't do anything about it, the market will get what the market will bear.

I am pretty sure obamacare extends medicaid (which is better than medicare) to families that make under $45,000 per year and for the first time ever single dudes that fall under the income limits for obamacare can get medicaid, sad we are creating a bunch of wussies. Medicaid is 100% paid by gov't while medicare is 80/20. Then for the families that make $45,000 to ~%70,000 they will get gov't help to pay for insurance if the cost is over a certain threshold.

I used to know all the details but now I forget them so I might be a little off on the exact figures but those are very close. I used to have the entire bill as pdf but have a new computer so it's gone.

Also keep in mind that this sounds so awesome we are helping people out, just remember where the gov't money comes from. Also remember insurance is a business and a business cannot stay in business if they are not making money. Most insurance companies are public so they have to satify investors and a board of directors. They do not like when you operate in the red so when obama comes out and says "I feel that insurance companies should be forced to cover xyz." That means the insurance companies have to add the cost of that coverage to everyone's bill because nothing is free and they cannot operate in the red.

The thing about uninsured getting mad about an increase in taxes is not going to hurt dems because dems fall into these buckets:

Poor - will get the free insurance and too poor to pay taxes anyway.

Public sector or union worker - they already have the best health insurance already so they will not feel anything from obamacare.

Very rich - won't feel a thing.

The thing about the right getting out there and hitting the streets, we can't we are too busy working and don't get paid time off to go protest.

Thats right there are more people that will vote on the promise of a handout and sticking it to the man than there are workers willing to stand up to that mentality. And you're about 2016 with the shift in the way people think that could be a landslide dem win too. Also the obamacare church thing will be old news in a few days, people love obamacare. It lets poor people have access to health care thats what they all think and it does not matter if it drives up costs because the people benefiting from obamacare are not paying the bill.

another reason why things are getting better is because the private sector, the do-ers, the people that make it possible for for public employees to have great salary and benefits always find a way to make things work. That's why they are in the private sector. The left's policies of attacking rich people and stealing their money to give it to lazy people are not good for the economy but people forget for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. So for all the destructive legislation that gets signed (and most anything that gets signed is bad for business in some way) the private sector responds to that they just don't sit back and take it. It may take awhile but they will figure it out. That's why companies are doing so well right now, they have figured out a way to not only survive in this climate but how to strive and achieve results. Because in the private sector (at a good company) it not acceptable to just do as good as last year, you have to exceed last years results thus you work hard to find a way.

yes 2012 is going to be a good year for economy especially in florida, texas, north dakota, new jersey and ohio. This is based on commercial insurance company financial data. Small business insurers are seeing record growth in those states. Which usually means a healthy economy. In fact most states are seeing good growth its just the ones mentioned above are growing 30% Year over year which is really good. down side is Obama will easily get re elected since things are getting better.

Anybody with half a brain knows gun control doesn't stop gun violence. It just keeps law abiding citizens from getting them. How is the "ban" on cocaine doing? Criminals and gangs do not buy their guns and gander mountain, they smuggle them just like they do the tons and tons of cocaine. Guns are made all over the world and keeping americans from legally owning them just means that the criminals will have all the guns. Mexico has some of the most strict gun laws, hows that working out for them?

Plus things cant get any worse for Obama and even a few pieces of good news here and there throughout the year or if he is able to somehow spin something his way that is all it will take for the dems to get all fired up and show up in november to support him. Right now obama is tied with a generic republican candidate but that is because the dems dont pay attention until the last minuite then they all come out of the woodwork. It happens every election you guys act like this is your first election year. It happened in 2010 too, repubs had a commanding lead in most races by like 20 points all year then around october the gap started shrinking and they won most races by only a few ppts. Right now repubs only have a slight lead so using voting logic that happens every two years the dems will show up at the end at win because them showing up late is like a 15 pt advantage at the end and they will eat up the republican enthusiasm that is going on right now, plus all the republican bickering between each other only helps obama.

Everything has changed and there is a first time for everything. He will break all those records about being re-elected with high unemployment and low approval. It is all about advertising dollars and messaging. He has more money than all republicans combined, he will easily have more than $1 billion this time around and that will buy lots of radio / tv / print / internet ads and that is what matters. It does not matter who the better candidate is, it matters how many people can you get your misleading ads in front of.

The dems message sounds so good to way more than half of this country. Only half of this country works and only 25% or so of the workers make more than $75k. The dems message is simple, we will are going to make people pay their fair share so you can continue to get handouts. They dont say "handouts" when they talk they say things like "we are going to ensure you have access to the same medical care as rich people", or "make sure you have the same chances as blah blah blah jonny rich kid" etc etc. They say they are going after $250k or more earners but you could take all of the rich peoples money and it would still not cover the entitlements, the dems will make everyone pay more.

Obama will win because he only needs 270 electoral votes to win (he got 365 last time) there are still enough states that like him to get to 270. If third party emerges then it will even be easier for him because of the winner take all rule. Dems are very smart when it comes to winning an election they know how to win, they are good at messaging and creating a brand that people want. Republicans are not as good at winning elections because instead of them sticking together behind one person and having a goal of beating the other team they break up into smaller less powerful groups with unrealistic goals. At the end of the day its a numbers game.

Doesn't matter, Obama will easily be re-elected because the US economy is trending up and he is going to take full credit for it even though nothing he did helped, it is just the normal business cycle of ups and downs.

really the price of gas should be just at or below the price of its closest alternative. So if gas was so expensive how would you get around, public trans? Then really the price of gas should be just about whatever you would pay to ride the bus. There are two costs to the bus, one is the fare and the other is the opportunity cost of not having your own car to go wherever you want when you want, so what ever that is worth to you add that to the fare and that is what gas should cost.

right, but overall price is based on what the market will tolerate. If the regulations and taxes etc. made the cost so high that people stopped buying it then it would come down. The fact is people may not like $3/gas but they still buy it. If it was $10/gallon it might be a different story.

Everything else would adjust to it. Prices are what they are because the market can bear them. So if gas was $1/gallon the demand would go up so much that they couldn't keep it in stock. The producers would see their sales and say wow our price is too low and raise the price until demand goes back to a point that meets supply. Now lets say we live in never never land and the gov't comes out and says to oil company "you cannot charge more than $1/gal!" They will say ok at $1/gallon we are only going to produce 1/10th of demand and then you get a shortage and rationing where only certain license plates numbers can get gas on certain days.

If your total tax bill was 20% and you got to keep 80% of your pay that means you will have more spending money. You will be buying more things which is more demand which is higher prices. A manufacture of any good looks at things like this. If I sell a product at the store for $10 and they all sell quickly then I say to myself I was not priced right because people bought it right up. I raise my price because you want your price to be right at the point where the person is on the fence about buying it. You dont want it to be such a good price because that means you are losing money (consumer surplus). And you dont want it to be so expensive that nobody buys it.

So yeah in the short term it will be nice, but it wont take long for market to adjust.

Think of it this way, what is a lot of money to the average person say its XYZ dollars, if we were all able to easily save up XYZ dollars would it still be a lot of money, no.

He is kinda correct about the government meddling jacking up the cost of health care. Even before obamacare, say a person on medicare / medicaid goes in for a procedure that has an actual no bs cost of $500. That doctor sends the bill to uncle sam and medicare will "disallow" and only pay that doctor $300 so now you come in with a real insurance card and get the same procedure but the doc has to bill you $700 to make up the $200 he lost on the gov't patient. If there was no gov't insurance "disallowing" things the costs would not be as high. There are millions and millions of people on medicare / medicaid.

A similar example just happened to me with my car. A person backed into me in the parking lot. I took my car in for estimate and it said $640. The guy at the body shop asked if I was going to report this to my insurance company and I said no, my deductible is $500 so its not worth it. He said i will do it for $400. So its not exactly the same thing but the basic idea is as long there are these bigger things picking up the bill (gov't or ins companies) people are going to take advantage. If nobody had insurance and there was no medicare medicaid could a hospital ever get away with charging $10,000 for one night stay?

You cannot fix the healthcare costs as long as doctors get $200,000+ per year and nurses get $75,000 per year. An insurance company does not set these salaries but they are on the hook to pay for these things, thats why health insurance costs so much. The insurance companies make a few cents per dollar sometimes nothing, but that adds up with millions of customers.

The role of govt is to provide security, and social services to people that are unable to work. Where are you getting your info from. Unemployment is on the decline and most states are doing well. The govt cannot create jobs. The govt gets all of their money from the private sector. The govt cannot just create demand and all of the money they hand out requires input from private sector. Plus since the govt is highly ineffcient the money they spend is usually wasted. What I mean is they will spend $60,000 to save a job that pays $30,000 digging a bigger hole.

If anyone wants the life of a small business owner they can try it out themselves. Yeah a successful small biz owner can make really good money and drive cars like you mentioned but what you don't see is that person put in tons of work in the beginning getting it going. Running a start up is like having two full time jobs for several years and even then it's not like you can just quit and walk away and have someone else look after it because they will not do a good job like you will.

Yes, dems have no idea what goes on behind the scene when they get paid. A person that answers the telephone in a call center at a big company has a wage of ~$13-15/hr which comes out to about $26-30k per year. But each one of those employees actually cost the company double that! Because your workplace pays for your health care, and they have to match dollar for dollar your SSI deduction, they have to pay in to workers comp insurance and a whole laundry list of costs are going on behind the scene that you never see (thanks to the gov't). Then these people think just that because they have worked somewhere for a certain amount of time the employer owes them something like a seniority benefit where if layoffs come around they should get to keep working and they should layoff the new people. That is crazy, the best workers should get to stay no matter how long they have worked there. An employer does not owe you anything more than your pay for the last pay period of work. If you dont like the pay you are getting for your job, make yourself worth more and go somewhere else.

That doesn't work because american companies have to compete with countries all over the world and american companies sell their stuff all over as well. Instead of trying to isolate ourselves american workers should find better way to compete rather than having the gov't stack the deck by imposing tariffs. All those things you mentioned have been done in the past and they were failures because they either a) make the american company non competitive with the foreign counterpart or b) it jacks the price up of everything for the consumer because you are interfering with the free market.

If a robot (or mexican) can do your job for half the cost then that is all your job is worth. A company is in business to make money not take care of people. It is up to the individual to make them worthwhile.

Its like having a garage sale and putting a price of $100 on a bike. If nobody is willing to pay $100 for the bike but they all offer $70 then that is all the bike is worth.

You can get out of that lifestyle. I am from alliance right next to canton. Was a terrible student, worked in factories after high school (american steel, longaberger, B&W) but saw the life it was gonna make for me and said no way not for me. Dad was Babcock Wilcox worker for 30 years and I followed right in his steps but the life sucks. It took me 6 six years to do something but it is possible and its easy, it just takes time. And you know what the time is going to pass no matter what you do so you might as well do something during that time instead of just hanging out and waiting (hoping) for the government to take more from the rich.

One more thing lets say the government comes out with a program that guarantees that if you graduate high school and get a job doing whatever they will promise you a living wage to do all that you mentioned with no welfare. The way economics work is that prices will rise because demand will go up and that living wage amount will become the new baseline for barley getting by, you cannot get around that.

They will uphold the mandate and obamacare because it's not really a mandate. They don't really make you buy insurance. You can still choose not to buy it, they will just fine you 2.5% of your income for not buying. Which is still cheaper than buying health insurance at a lot of jobs.

Third party leads to democrats winning. It's because most dems vote dem regardless of the issue or candidate, they will not vote for a person unless they have dem next to the name. Dems have been told to vote dem because they stand up for the little guy or ...fill in the blank. On the other hand less than half of republican voters are die hard republicans that vote republican no matter what. So with a third party the dems still get all of their votes and the independent will get half of the conservative vote maybe a few dems, and the republicans get the other half of the conservative vote. Dems still come out ahead.

china is already pricing themselves out of the labor market already similar to how the unions do here in usa. My old job has stuff made in china and when we went to expand and build more buildings the new factory had to be built so far away from everything else because labor costs are going up in the big cities in china. The logistical costs are so high in china to get the cheap labor that is was just cheaper to build the new factory in a right to work state tennessee and that's what they did.

Live within your means so if you cant afford the car payment you should have bought a used car. There are student loan programs that let you pay barely nothing each month while you are poor (been there done that.) Finally I started in north carolina where I loved it and did not want to leave but I could not afford it so I moved to a cheaper state so you can do the same. You are not forced to stay in cali.

It is up to the individual to roll with the punches and adapt because situations change nothing is guarnateed. It should not be the taxayers responsibilty to subsidize a life that you created that you cannot afford anymore.

Median income does not matter. People that worked hard and became something more than just average should not have to pay so everybody below median income gets a handout.

Since you brought up your $65,000 salary and 5 person family and talking about barley making it by. Try doing this

April 2003 - June 2009
Family of 3
Lived off $900 - $1,100 per month
No food stamps, no medicaid, no rent assistance, no utility assistance, no bankruptcy and never complained once. Always maintained positive attitude and to this day my wife cant believe we did that.

How big was your welfare check on $65k/year?

you have nothing those are lame answers. I want you to make a list of republican majority measures that have passed which forcibly take money from working people. I will get you started the democrats have medicare, medicaid, SSN, Obamacare,. The dems are also responsible for most taxes that we have today like gasoline / energy tax but I wont even count those because technically I could avoid that if I really wanted to.

A real republican does not believe in creating govt programs that take money each pay just for some benefit down the road. Because the gov't cannot run any program and break even they always go in the red which costs us more money and the benefit you get down the road is always worth less than what you paid in because you are subsidizing the people who pay nothing and get those benefits.

Said it before, yes I understand there is a small number of phys / mental disables that are not able to take care of themselves and thats fine, we can handle them. I am talking about able bodies getting handouts. Let them go, they will either a) get a fire in their belly and do something or b) they will just pout under a bridge and be homeless and live a shorter life. A say good in both cases, lets trim the fat.

jobs are bad for the environment and they produce too much co2. Plus if a person has a good job and is not dependent on gov't benefits then Obama will lose votes because people tend to vote based on 'whats in it for me?' once you start working and make a little money you no longer qualify for all the handouts so there is no incentive to vote for a dem. Infact once you start working and noticing how much the govt takes in taxes you will start signing a different tune.

They should not have been bailed out. They lent money to people they knew had little chance at paying it back. They should not have to loosen anything because that is why things went south in the first place. If we go back to the old lending model where anybody can just show up and get a loan then we are right back where we started.

Banks did not force people to go buy more house than they could afford. The gov't encouraged banks to lend to people without proof of income and things like that. Just see for yourself when that happened. Hint, it was after reagan. Banks do not force you to rack up credit card debt to buy things you cant afford.

Now that they are doing their part and not lend money willy nilly to poor risks everybody says they are the enemy. You can go through life and hardly never have to deal with banks. By a house you can afford, drive a used car and live within your means, what is the big deal? Banks just hold your money, go to the atm and withdraw your paycheck every payday if you think banks are so bad. This whole argument that banks are the reasons for all thats bad is like saying guns are why we have murders.

Liberals are miserable. You can tell right away when you meet a lib because they are depressed , bad attitude and they don't laugh. Its funny how the left calls themselves the party of change but if know any liberals then you know they have the worst time dealing with any kind of change or stress. They have little to no self confidence in themselves thats why they are always looking to someone else to take care of them. They think that everybody who is good at something is just born with a natural gift to do it and they never give credit that the person may spend hours practicing or studying to get good. Because if they acknowledge that Johnny is awesome at XYZ because he spent hours and hours / days days practicing it shames them because they know they dont have the work ethic to do something like that.

Whoa, awesome. The lefts policies do create a new kind of slave. The democrats want to give you just enough to get by while taking it from "the man." Drive through a neighborhood that was bad in 1980 and see how things are today. Is it better, no. Because giving them just enough to get by keeps them right in their place. They don't have the ambition to go above and beyond because they are getting by.

On second thought I like it this way because it is easy for me to get promotions and get nice jobs because I have that fire in my belly that drives me and I stand out amongst my peers cause they are happy hammering welfare checks and playing xbox all day. If they cut them off they will get motivated and I will have more competition. I will keep paying my $700 per month tax bill (state , fed, local combined) which is bigger than any other bill I have to keep them at home happy with the $500 a month they get.

Holy crap, I mispoke, they take $700 from per pay! I am not rich and had to rack up some loans to get my job. I already claim the max dependents on my form at work and usually break even at tax time so its not like I can say I have big refund coming.

Asking the rich to pay more in taxes is similar to this. Say you are the head coach of the football team and you have 3 wide outs Rice, Smith and Jones. Its the 4th qtr Rice has 250 yds 3 TDs, Smith and Jones have 50 yds combined no TDs. You as the head coach instead of going to Smith and Jones and telling them to get their act together and move the ball you go to Rice and tell him "hey we need you to do a little more, contribute more to the team." Even a democrat can tell you thats wrong.

The only way he'll be defeated is if enough white, middle class voters can take a few hours off during their work day and go out and vote.
He can win without the white working vote. Obama's team has already done the electoral math and they are not even going to target white middle class voters. There is no need to now because of the boom in population of minority / poor people.

people don't have healthcare yet because Obamacare doesn't start until 2014, then we will all have it. If you make less than 44,000 per year your health insurance will be paid for by everybody else that is making more than 44,000 per year. Its awesome it makes perfect sense because people that make 45k were just given that money and they don't need it heck 45k is rich living high on the hog. They didnt earn that money by going to college and getting a good degree, they were just handed a job so they should have to pay.

Obama is going to win no matter what they do. If they strike it down he will just point to republicans and say see they dont want to take care of their fellow man and they dont want you to have health care. If they up hold it that will energize his base by allowing his signature legislation to become the law of the land and it will take away republicans call to repeal it.
