Letter: Selective Obama

Do people enjoy being ignorant? The law (specifically, IRC Section 6055) states that the employer reports are due “at such time as the Secretary may prescribe.” This letter should have instead been titled "Selective Truth".

Opinion: For GOP, life is sacred, except when not

You obviously failed to read the study. Arthur Brooks' "study" is clearly debunked. He's the president of the American Enterprise Institute, a non-partisan think tank right?

Lie. Conservatives do not give more to charity than liberals. http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cf...

GOP should debunk health bill figures

Double lulz. You might want to read that again.

GOP should debunk health bill figures

Lulz. You don't know how discretionary spending works, fail to grasp the meaning of "output" in the presentation, for some reason include the argument that the budget impact could be different if the law was changed, which it wasn't, and keep claiming that the doctor fix was in the CBO score, which it wasn't. (If you mean double-counting, the CBO didn't do that either. Even Paul Ryan agrees the CBO didn't double count.)

Facts = CBO -- objective, non-partisan -- educated guesses. I don't know about you, but if the most trusted weatherman around tells me it's going to rain, I don't claim that he's uncertain, I bring an umbrella. By the way, you should throw around some more ad hominems. It really helps with your argument...

GOP should debunk health bill figures

Nothing new here. Because the facts don't support your viewpoint, you attack the people responsible for those facts.

Also, you *DO* know that in 1997, Republicans added a flawed provision to Medicare that would have seen doctors flee the profession. Because Republicans didn't want that to happen, they passed yearly bills that prevented the cuts from taking place. None of these bills were paid for. Why you ask? Because they were cuts no one ever intended to make. If no one ever intended to make them, why should they be paid for, and why should they included as spending in the Health Care Bill? That's right, they shouldn't.

Um, the presentation was done on the Reconciliation Legislation Combined with H.R. 3590 as Passed by the Senate. The doctor fix isn't in the Reconciliation bill, and never was.

And since you're not good with graphs, here's a table. Page 6. http://www.cbo.gov/ftpdocs/114xx/doc1...

Next?

GOP should debunk health bill figures

"With 10 years of money inflow versus six years of outflow, the result is a positive — i.e., deficit-reducing — number. Surprise."

Lie, i.e., Republican talking point. In the first three years, benefits are larger than or equal to taxes. Only in year four are taxes larger than benefits. In year five, benefits equal taxes. In the next five years, however, benefits absolutely overwhelm taxes.

Page 4 of this presentation. It's a Goldman Sachs graph. Benefits are dark blue. Taxes are light blue. http://www.cbo.gov/ftpdocs/114xx/doc1....

Immigration questions to ponder

That's not true about Robert Krentz.

The Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever is investigating a person in the United States, not in Mexico, in connection with the shooting.

Voters send message to both political party establishments

Oh, and Tom, you might want to check out Intrade today. The price for the 2010 US House of Representatives Control dropped $5 overnight, from $45 to $40. Republicans now have a 40% chance of taking control of the House. Wait, it's now at 39.2%. Oh noes!!!

But it has a Cook Partisan Voting Index score of R+1, i.e., it leans Republican. Furthermore, it voted for McCain in 2008.

Critz won by 8 points. That must really sting.
