Hi everybody!

Been away for a while, read this article and wanted to share. This place (NHB) has been real lame lately.

Hope everyone is good

Well, at least Obamacare won't provide several more avenues for fraud.....

Fraud may not be necessary, if winners and losers can be picked by the administration. Looking at you, unions and Congress.

I remember the good old days before Obama was elected when this wasn't a problem at all.

Who said that? This is the inherent problem with government programs. They all are subject to fraud. The bigger the program, the more waste, fraud and abuse (this includes DoD, by the way). Obamacare just happens to be the biggest government program, ever. So logically, there will be a lot of waste, fraud and abuse under its umbrella. I think that's what the Leadman was referring to.

I've said this before, but the party seperation in this country is killing it. Pretty much a joke at this point.

Naturally, I'm registered independent. Two reasons, 1. I make my own decisions and 2. I'm well aware that neither party, nor those under their umbrellas gives a shit about me. Only concern is their special interests and keeping this political sham going.

So don't label my thought that Obamacare will be a huge disaster as partisan. It's not going to be a huge disaster cause it's from a democrat - it's going to be a huge disaster on it's own merit. And the info has been right under our noses the whole time.

A massive expansion of the welfare state? Put in on my middle class bill. - Along with all the other shit thats come from both parties in recent years.

And it might be wise to start budgeting for the future hits from the upcoming pension disasters, the student loan relief (just like we're paying for the automobile relief), the future medical disasters and the next two wars against Korea and Iran.

We're in fucking huge financial trouble. And it ain't one parties fault.
