    I am not for anarchy. I am just saying, if we continue to allow the banks, insurance companies and the entire medical industry run the way it's running, we are never going to get out of this.

    We need banks. Just a few GOOD banks. We don't need 17,543 little banks, giving out insane APR loans and screwing people. We need a FAIR, regulated banking system. Since the credit score has been so heavily weighed, this country has been going down hill. I can see a few tiers of interest rates and stuff, but I don't care what your credit score is, a Bank shouldn't be able to loan you money on more than, lets say 8% rate. Period. We let banks do what they want. Same with the insurance industry. They are making money hand over fist, when the playing field should be leveled.

    The whole system is broken. And I won't get into military, cause I dont have an alternative idea, but the way our money is spent in this nation is as$ backwards.

    I bet my daughter could have been delivered in the Scripps hosptial in San Diego for about $10,000. I had good insurance, and had EVERYTHING paid for. At the end of it, I got the invoice, just to show how much my insurance company paid. $60,000. My jaw dropped, and then I thought back. To every little detail. From the amount of time they made us stay (Way too long before and after) to the amount it costs just for us to be there, for the 24 nurse rotations, to this, to that, to towels, to formula....

    I mean, there was easily $30,000 worth of "luxury" items mixed in there. And I am very happy that I have a happy, healthy baby and it was a sweet facility. But the second they got the green light from my insurance company, they just rolled out the red carpet and milked my insurance company for every penny they could get.... And that is one of the many reasons the system is broken. It is so bloated, and the costs that are covered are SO INFLATED and so out of touch with reality, that it further polarized everything.....

    If the insurance companies didn't have to shell out $60K per normal delivery in southern California, they rates could probably be low enough that 50% more people could afford covered.

    But thats not what anyone wants. Insurance wants higher prices, hospitals love it too. Everyone just abused the system on EVERY level, and it really hurts the majority of american's who can't afford it....

    Obama needs to deal with that. Cause I know he knows the deal.

    His constituents and buddy lobbyists are getting way too much $$ from the health industry to do anything about it.

    Crony capitalism is scary man.

    GOP might have started them....Dems made no attempt to stop it though. If anything, they threw gas on the fire for most issues.
    That was instituted in '07.

    The GOP lied to congress and the world to get into Iraq for Cheney.

    And Obama keeps signing it in with a smile, expanding it every year.

    BRAHHHHHH, do you even know what the NDAA is?
    "The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) is a United States federal law specifying the budget and expenditures of the United States Department of Defense. Each year's act also includes other provisions. The U.S. Congress oversees the defense budget primarily through two yearly bills: the National Defense Authorization Act and defense appropriations bills. The authorization bill determines the agencies responsible for defense, establishes funding levels, and sets the policies under which money will be spent."

    Do you think congress would vote against that? The only job they said was a priority for them was to make O a one term prez. They failed at that.

    NDAA is downright scary. Read into it, sub articles, and what it allocates for domestic operations.

    There are scarier things than that. But O had nothing to do with starting it, and can't do schitt about it.

    The only real christian president we've had was Jimmy Carter.
