Makes you wonder, the lies that the costs of health care are out of control.
well sure they are and no wonder! Thanks to these good ole boys!edit on 9-6-2012 by burntheships because: (no reason given)
There are many other examples where this corruption is and has been taking place. The Military Industrial Complex is a huge one with many private companies charging outlandish costs that we have to pay for.

Same old story....time and time again.
It seems so, just tales of corruption in the Obama Administration seem to
out count all predecessors. Including the Drone strikes.

We deserve this.
First of all... IS there anyone who is shocked by this news? I think not.
Second of all... Does anyone here believe Mitt Romney would have done something different? I think not.
Does anyone know who would have?? Perhaps a 12 term Congressman who has a history of telling special interest to go screw themselves? Perhaps a 12 term Congressman who has never taken a dime from Big Pharma? Perhaps the same 12 term Congressman who has a medical degree and a medical practice who lobbyist would just not even approach because it was "pointless"?
No one has a right to complain anymore. We had our chance to put in Office and man who would have put a stop to all this crap. Instead the voters got distracted by the little things and did not vote for him. The voters wanted to bicker about abortion, newsletters, and any number of absolutely stupid circus issues. We had our chance... we failed. Now live with it.

Well, as I understand it, the tactic is to scandalise the out going puppet to creat a fake "mandate from the people ", who in reaction to the scandals swing somewhat more so to the opposite party they would normally support...It creates the illusion of democracy ...
the in coming party pretends to oppose the outgoing party till they are in power
then they carry on with the same old same old
I think we will see escalating Obama scandals...this scandal (in the OP) being a prime example of the tacticedit on 9-6-2012 by Danbones because: (no reason given)

You talk as if we still have a fair and uncorrupted election process here in America, but we don't. Election fraud makes it rather difficult to vote any decent candidate into office. Only the corrupt are "allowed" to win. So, no, "we" did not fail and "we" do not deserve this. We are being railroaded.

I'm not sure how this stops.
When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
