    The same group that increased costs to it's own employees citing the new healthcare law...
    http://www.usmessageboard.com/healthcare-insurance-govt-healthcare/140575-citing-health-overhaul-aarp-hikes-employee-costs.html
    ...is also reaping record profits without taxes... courtesy of their support of the new healthcare law.

    WTF???

    Because a lot of us old duffers fully support the OWS. Their message that something is clearly wrong with the distribution of wealth in this nation is spot on. We on the factory floor have watched the real worth of our wages go steadily downward for 30 years, while the wealth of the nation has become increasingly concentrated at the top.

    The AARP is the one way we can keep the GOP from putting all seniors in the working class of people back into poverty as soon as they cease to be of use to the corperations. That is the intent of the GOP. When you can no longer make them money, they see no reason that you should continue to live.

    Thanks to good policy, we now have our auto industry on firm footing again, with several million jobs saved.

    Given the insane policies that put us into this hole, whatever the Dems did to get us started moving in the right direction again, is a good thing.

    I know you really hate to see your fellow Americans starting to get their jobs back, and having money in their pockets again, but you are just going to have to live with that.

    That's a good question. I saw Barry try to address it the other day teleprompter-less. Quote, "Ah, um...well as ah I um, you know it's...well, um as we all ah...know sometimes, ah it it kinda...um, ah...part ah, because of the previous administration."

    they agreed with the GOP as it pertained to the Bush Tax Cut extension.
    Within months, we saw the economy starty a recovery.
