    CNN needs to address the fact that as Mr. Obama continues to defend Jihadism the number of Islamic attacks on America continues to rise.

    Who is Barack Hussien Obama and what are his plans for America ?

    So with leaks like this in our current systems, no one will be shocked to learn in the future that major payouts from the new nationalized health care system is going to fake identifies in places like Lagos Nigeria.

    As America scrolls down through CNN stories this morning it becomes overwhelmingly obvious where CNN is politically. But we really have known that for years now.

    Not one single solitary story centered on America's military and the sacrifices they are making this season. Just the Obamas, who have a long and sad hate for the U.S. military.

    Mediaid is a fraudulent liberal system. Always has been. Check SSI if you want to see more examples of how the government manages these liberal entitlement programs. They are designed by frauds for frauds to keep frauds in office. April 15th we need to start taking our country back from the libertards.

    Overbilling Medicaid and Medicare has become business-as-usual for America's physicians and hospitals. The usual punishment is to force the offending corporation to pay back some of the money it stole from taxpayers.

    How much corporate money is spent every year on "conditional" campaign contributions, little envelopes stuffed with hundred dollar bills, pretty girls, and private detectives who research the backgrounds of political opponents? Our political institutions are being corrupted by the private sector. This is not how Conservatives promised us that a free market would work.

    I guess the new so called healthcare bill that the democrats and liberals are ramming down our throats will correct this problem. LOL

    yeah, and this abuse is rampant. Here's the kicker; this is how Reid and Pelosi propose to pay for health reform...by reducing medicare fraud...like this...and they have INCLUDED those numbers in the calculations to show the CBO that health reform will pay for itself? What a joke! We will only have more fraud, more theft of our tax dollars..and in a few years, they'll come on and say they underestimated costs..blah..blah..blah...but, then they'll say, at re-election time, especially Obama, that health reform occurred...but he won't divulge that it's a rampant failure, he'll butter it...so, all liberals, this is the master plan? To help pay for reform by reducing fraud? Fraud that's rampant in the very minority communities that committed voter fraud via ACORN to elect Obama? That's the people we're to trust? HAHA...Libs, you own it...!!

    And this is the Health Care System that the Republicans want to protect? It appears that the Repubs have a two-fold purpose:

    (1) Do everything they can to prevent Obama and the Dems from making the changes IN ANYTHING that we voted for in November 2008. AND

    (2) Prevent the Dems from changing the pathetic and broken Health Care System. The Republican benefactors-reelection donors (the Insurance Companies), are screwing the American public with high insurance rates and abnormal profits.

    Lets flush these fools down the toilet of history in 2010.
