Begich record mirrors Obama's

Posted: October 25, 2012 - 8:24am

Senator Begich’s ideas as noted in “Voices of Alaska” (Oct. 18) for budget cuts are miniscule as they relate to the trillion dollar deficits the Obama administration incurs every year. His track record as Mayor of Anchorage parallels that of President Obama. Under his administration taxes increased substantially and he left the city of Anchorage with a twenty million dollar shortfall.

As an idea, why not work toward collecting the twenty-three billion dollars General Motors owes the government. The United Auto Workers should be glad to take home less income to do this as a nice gesture to thank Mr. Obama and Begich who gave them sixty percent of the company during their negotiations. Perhaps he should suggest to the President to talk to the Ford people who survived without the big handouts. That might prevent future giveaways.

He cites smart investments in education, infrastructure and energy but factually our grade and high schools have continually received more money while test scores over the last decade receded. The infrastructure program of the current administration was a total failure and the government lost ninety billion dollars in its venture into alternative energy.

Almost everything our Senator says is the same pitch the Obama administration preaches but the fact is they have failed miserably. A junior senator’s suggestions even if fully implemented would do little to reduce the deficit. We cannot add seventeen million people to the food stamp program and continue the trend of government activity to more and more welfare. We need to send Mr. Obama on his way back to the Windy City.

Check Mr. Begich’s voting record in the Senate. He is constantly supporting the Obama position and his entire article sounds like a speech by the president. I can’t buy his tale.

Do you have to be wearing magic underwear to read free healthcare? Where do get free from this post, thread? If you could show how you logically got to "Free Healthcare" I'll tell all three of you where to go to get your own magic underwear, they might even throw in a free flaming cat logo.

Hard to keep up with the counterclockwise spin

I just love how crazy it makes ya'll liberals when faced with an opposing view. Open the flood gates of hate and lies.

To review, so far we have a claim that Obamacare has dropped everyone's insurance rates 12-15%. Praise be!

That is quickly challenged with facts and figures showing the opposite. I even provided my actual insurance bills over the last 3 years as evidence of significant rate increases. You can also pull up various medical journal articles where there are published studies on health insurance premiums (yes, I actually went out and did my research before jumping into this debate). There has never been an across the board drop in insurance rates. Not now. Not ever. Proven fact; like an apple falling from a tree. Average nationwide insurance premiums have risen 10-15% per year and it is well documented.

Yet, you guys continue to try and convince the 5 or 6 people who read the Clarion's online comments section that Obamacare is lowering our insurance rates. And you start off by claiming that I just have the wrong insurance company. So that implies that Obamacare isn't good for all of us, just a few of you. Is that how it works in your little world?

So, the best counter to real data is to just attack the messenger. Call him a stupid illiterate. Yeah, that will do it. Do you really think you win the debate by ducking the facts and attacking the messenger? Just how juvenile is the progressive movement? (We need only recall the violent “Occupy” mobs for the answer to that question.)

Since you guys made that accusation, I went ahead and laid my personal documentation on the table as proof you are lying. I'd think anyone who might happen to read this thread could surmise who has education and who might be lacking, but I've nothing to lose or to hide when it comes to proving you wrong, again.

Which of you are working in the health insurance industry again? It's always good to post your credentials and experience when you are debating as an expert witness on a subject. I have over 22 years of experience working in the health care industry for both public and private operations. I don't claim to be a health insurance expert, but I do have extensive personal knowledge of health care and health insurance. Now, let's see yours.

If only Obama would have produced his birth certificate or Romney would have produced his tax returns when asked, like I did when I was challenged here. Ah, but now we see the rub. The documents proving you wrong don't matter, do they? Since I so readily provided my proof, all you guys can come back with is more ridicule and accusation about me personally. All done with the clear intention of hoping the lie about dropping insurance rates will just disappear into the background.

Not going to happen. Insurance rates have NOT dropped due to Obamacare. Your initial claim that they have is wrong. I'll sit here all week pushing you back on topic until you admit you have fabricated and published falsehoods about Obamacare with the intent of political gain. I expect that you and your little friends will continue to post your personal attacks against me. Go right ahead. You simply further my own point as you do so. Since you don't know me or anything about me, you can use your imagination and make up as many lies as you can. That is called "slander", which is liberal debate tactic #7.

And if it makes you feel better about your lies to imagine that I'm a HS drop out playing on my daddy's computer in my parent's basement, well go right ahead. Let's let the folks decide who sounds like they might be in that situation. For anyone who is curious about why people make such accusations, it would be worth while to read up on the psychology of criminal behavior. It is very common for someone to project themselves onto others. It is a fascinating subject.

SWITCH GEARS

I would like to talk about the mess on the east coast due to this massive storm.
What a sad situation for millions of Americans and this will not be a quick fix for many months if ever for many.
I think we will start to see massive gang action as people start to panic from not being prepared and that the military will be brought in and much troubles will erupt from this storm.
Very sad what has happened and i wonder if this is the beginning of the End for America, it just breaks my heart to see all this devastation and it's not over yet either.
God help us and forgive us for desiring a New Hope and fundamental Change thats main desire is to TOTALLY REMOVE GOD FROM OUR NATION AND LIVES.

We are in some major troubles as a Soverign Nation Under God and i do wonder just how much longer that will be the case for US ALL?
VERY SAD HOW AMERICA HAS REMOVED GOD AND NOW PLACES OUR ONLY HOPE AS A NATION IN MEN LIKE OBAMA OR ROMNEY WHICH WILL NOT PROVIDE ANY HELP OR LASTING HOPE FOR ANYONE, MEN NEVER DO AND CAN'T AS HISTORY SHOWS.

There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch

Begich Hussein Obama
The United States government Website Social Security Advisory Board: but you won’t even listen to your own government will you socialists? 'cause you just don't care.

Entitled, ‘The Unsustainable Cost of Health Care.’

“On a per capita basis, spending is expected to grow almost 70 percent from $7,800 per person in 2008 to $13,100 per person in 2018.”

“Spending on health care is growing faster than national income.”

“There is no simple way to restrain the growth of costs while improving and ensuring quality.”

http://www.ssab.gov/

Social Security is no longer solvent. The projected financial shortfall is coming soon. Your fraudulent ‘FREE’ healthcare will cost you painfully.

The collapse of America is your plan, isn’t it, you Cloward & Piven Progressives? (There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.)

repukes the party of lies,

repukes the party of lies, liars, and hypocrites....

once again a repuke dodges the facts and spins

its own "little" opinion... address the facts??

NOT THE REPUKES.... the facts are that the

repuke presidents are responsible for 70% of

the national debt. the shrub increased the debt

by 89% during its 8 yrs. if obama had not increased

the debt in an attempt to stem the "great recession"

all you repukes would be whining that he didn't do anything

to help you.

romenemy the liar from everywhere with its position

claims to have been "bi-partisan", while gov had 707

of its 800+ vetoes overturned; even his repuke buddies were

disgusted with its behavior. romenemy was absent for over

200 days in its last year of being the gov in mass.

so when you address the outright lies... then we will

have a debate based on facts. just because you "claim"

something about yourself on this thread, does not equate

to "proof". it would seem that a self proclaimed possessor

of "education" would understand the concept of "proof".

FIY There has been elected in Delaware for the republican party.Running under the tea party banner.An elected official.Who was unknowing of what OUR First Amendment was.Now! I am not sure a person of that caliber should have been on any ballot.But that is the type of people that is being pushed down our throats.Do the powers that be.Believe the American people are this stupid?Obviously they DO.Do not vote emotion.You will not make sound judgment.Vote with reason,and logic.

End of Democracy as You Know IT

What, you sound surprized that our favorite Son candidate didn't set the world on fire. Here Alaska the Last Fronteir had played it smart with our minimal representation and garnered seniority and true power in the Senate and House. Don't think that went unnoticed bye our Democratic Demmegods in Washington. Here you have a very small number of deligates wheeling a huge amount of power while representing a very small percentage of the population, us, you and I. The tremendous assets risked to get Senator Ted's seat in the US Senate were rewarded greatly. And our newly elected Senator got his freshman name tag for the lockerroom door. All those valued and important committee chairmanships due the highest ranking US Senator went up in smoke when Mark Begich was elected.
Now we watch as democracy itself morphes into a feeding frenzy for the candidate with the most stuff, you know free stuff. You must see unless you are blind, the continued approach to the freefall of financial oblivion as we appear to go singing allong Mitch or is that BHO, who has the most stuff? If you haven't had the courage to really look well I'm challlenging you to open your mind to a little discussion about when a democracy FAILS! We won't be the first but we could bring the coming of the last.
History shows many democracies have failed and recent history shows the problems Greece is having today in the birthplace of democracy are esculating to the point where thier democractic form of governement failed a few thousand years ago! Exact same symptoms and now you would have to be blind to not see the same symptoms here in the good old USA. Folks we cannot afford everybodies everything and now we have a candidate who has figured a way to put just that on a ballet! When the vast majority of the population learn they can vote themselves benifets at the public taxpayers expense it's all but over!
There is no debate about leadership qualifications as a bidding platform to gather votes! It's look what I can give you and have given you and don't you want more? I know you want more as it's the pure free stuff, and I can get you so much more of it, it'll be coming out your ears! Yes we all know who Mark Begich replaced.

entitlements

Social security is NOT an entitlement,but it is an endowment.Which was a prepayment from payroll.Ronald Reagan took from social security to bolster the general fund.That is when the problems started to happen.Along with deregulation of about anything that had been controlled through regulations.He had also quadrupled the deficit.He placed the military industrial complex as a top priority for monies.The 600 ship navy did not happen,but the spending continued.Is a V.A. check an entitlement,or endowment since the veteran prepaid with time served,and injury?We need to cut military spending,rebuild our withering infrastructure.This would boost employment in this country.If we just spend the monies given to corporations.We could pay for the rebuilding of America. We do not need to give any corporations entitlements through tax cuts.

less federal spending

Ted Steven's took every FEDERAL dollar he could muster,but wailed at frivolous federal spending.I would like to know just how much went to Alaska,and how much went in his,and his friends pockets.He was there a long time,but he did openly admit.He was guilty.He did get off on technicalities though.The republican prosecutors did mistakes.A second year law student would not have done.So! Ted Stevens was a person of very questionable character.Which would make him easier to replace than one may think.

You might wish you were a swordman

Cause you just crossed one, to assert that Uncle Ted enriched himself at the public trough is a lie! For what he brought to Alaska we should have built him a castle with a moat a mile wide and deep and filled it with gold and jewels. But the last time I looked he lived in a considerably modest home for the neighborhood.
The prosecutorial misconduct was so carefully disguised as to slip under the carpet of public notice until just after the primary elections. so! A second grader should understand a lie can be just like a bell you can't unring it once it's struck. Your hypothisis is based on second grade not second year tactics.

I will gladly dissect where you are wrong in a follow up post but someone has to work.
There is no FREE Obamacare, everybody pays and that is what makes this fair. The Medicaid group has always been an issue that did not arise because of Obama.

What you state is your proof is equal to my proof, words, my BlueCross rates went down, following Rmoney’s lead, got $10,000.00 to wager, that my rates did not go down?
Off to work and then run to get some scotch to watch FOX news.

The good news is that there is only 3 or 4 dimwits on these comments that is sticking with liberal, communist Obama. That is part of the percentage of idiots that Romney was talking about. We will never be able to educate or enlighten them, heck they would vote for Hitler while in a Consentration Camp! If you read their comments, it shows their lack of intelligence and political foresight (they are only worried about their monthly entitlement check!). Thankfully, you can her the fear and panic in their tone....because when Romney wins....their free ride is OVER!

"Haddad said that while she

"Haddad said that while she had worked comfortably with previous Republican governors, Paul Cellucci and Jane Swift, Romney's inattention to budgetary detail was reflected in his personal relationship with lawmakers.

"You couldn't use the elevator next to his office," Haddad said. "It just sat there unused all day in case he needed to go up or down, because God forbid he should get stuck in there with one of us. It became a joke. You had to find it amusing, because otherwise it was very insulting."

"Romney targeted many programs that had been historically supported by both parties. He pushed to eliminate or gut more than 20 state programs serving veterans, disadvantaged children, and adults with severe physical disabilities. He also sought to cut money for breast cancer screenings, suicide prevention and programs that assisted the blind and the deaf."
"Some of Romney's proposals never made it to the veto stage. Massachusetts state Rep. Patricia Haddad (D-Somerset) recounted a 2003 hearing of the Public Health Committee, in which the Romney administration was seeking to impose spending caps on various programs, including one providing ventilators to sick people at home.

"I asked the chairman, 'When you cap this service, do they turn off the ventilators?'" Haddad told HuffPost. "So the chairman asks the question. You had to see the faces on the other side of the table. They didn't have an answer. No one had thought that out.""

"1 Not-So-Simple, Pretty Funny Question"

By Frank Schaeffer
"1 Not-So-Simple, Pretty Funny Question for the 73% of White Evangelicals Who Will Apparently Be Voting for Romney
A question that deserves an answer before election day.
According to polls 73 percent of WHITE evangelicals will be voting for Mitt Romney.

If the polls are correct here’s the question I'd like to ask evangelicals using their own style of language/concerns/theological thinking as applied to their choice:

What’s the explanation for the fact that white American Evangelicals made the allegedly philandering lying ignorant braggart lapsed Roman Catholic Dinesh D'Souza their anti-Obama hero, embrace a pro-choice Mormon bishop who promoted abortion and Planned Parenthood in MA, are working to elect a job-destroying tax-avoiding lying flip-flopping-tell-anyone-anything-they-want-to-hear Swiss bank account collecting draft dodger running with a disciple of the God-hating, Jesus-mocking hater-of-the-poor Ayn Rand, for their presidential candidate and look the other way as a crazed ultra-Zionist many Israeli Jews fear billionaire casino owner who is being investigated for allegedly making billions off the dirtiest Chinese gambling Communist Party-controlled outfit in the world funds the enterprise, at the very same time as Franklin Graham sold his ailing father Billy’s soul and denied core evangelical theology by taking Mormonism off the Billy Graham organization’s list of cults in order to help the Mormon pagan-ritual-performing, Trinity-denying, casino-money-grubbing billionaire-coddling, earth-destroying global-warming denying Mormon bishop win respectability for his dead-Jews-baptizing-polygamy-rooted-reality-denying-interplanetary Masonic lodge-embracing faith in an election against an exemplary modest faithful husband good father compassionate smart black evangelical Christian President whose major accomplishments include saving the economy, ending a war, killing our greatest enemy, giving health care to children and the poor and the "least of these" and who has tried to reduce the number of abortions by helping women escape poverty in a reenactment of the lesson of the parable of the Good Samaritan?

Please allow me to try and answer this stupid question of yours.
White and Black evangelical Christians are supporting Romney because he is slightly better than Obama who is actually OUR 50% white, 43% Bedioun Arab and 7% Black Black Liberation Replacement Theology muslim backed nonchristian President.
As i said before there is no such thing as a Muslim christian or a Mormon christian, they do not exist and are in TOTAL OPPISITE FROM TRUE CHRISTIANITY.
So you see Suss we are faced with TWO EVILS, they One we Know and the One we will Know. One must realize that THEY are almost identical in Doctrine and Theology and if one would study their formation, creation as last days new ways that God supposedly sent because he got it wrong the first time and now wants us to believe and go foreward following these False christs one would see that they are ABSOLUTELY NO DIFFERANT in any area other than a slight bit in the Moral issues to mormons.
NEITHER ONE will save America from what we have become and Gods judgment for our choices and believeing their lies and False Hopes and Changes to Believe in now.
Obama was chosen as the one to usher us into the new world order as Louis Farrakhan, Muslim leader and False Pastor Jeremiah Wright and MANY others said and he has brought America to the very brink of their DREAM and Americas fall from Soverign rights as free people and will continue on even if he loses or wins to GET-R-DONE.
Romney if he wins will not stop this train wreck and will actually help it if he does win as from DAY1 of Obama's reign of terror i said that he would lead America into a civil war or revolution before he was done and we can see thats a real possibility come Tuesday because of Race issues, IT'S JUDGMENT DAY, EITHER WAY.

Hope this helps and get ready as WICKED THIS WAY COMES and no man shall rescue any. from it's wrath.

Have a GR8 weekend and to stay on topic Begich can't help either.

Right on cue with the racist remarks. How is it that liberals "talk" about racial equality, but they are the first to separate people by race? Hypocrites.

Hey norsedude... Suss didn't write that. And it has got to be the worst bit of writing (or more correctly, copy & paste) that I've seen all week.

BTW... still waiting for some evidence to support your claim that Obamacare has caused a reduction in all of our insurance rates. Find any yet? Yeah, me neither.

This came in my e-mail and I thought I would pass this on because it is true!

If you ever wondered which side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!

If a Republican doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
If a Democrat doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a Republican is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat.
If a Democrat is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If a Republican is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
If a Democrat is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

If a Republican is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
A Democrat wonders who is going to take care of him.

If a Republican doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.
Democrats demand that those they don't like be shut down.

If a Republican is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.
A Democrat non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.

If a Republican decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
A Democrat demands that the rest of us pay for his.

If a Republican reads this, he'll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh.
A Democrat will delete it because he's "offended".
