If you want something actually real to worry about, listen to this discussion. It will point you in the most important direction of why things are as they are. If the mega rich are taking all the money, there is just not enough left for the rest of us. Seriously watch, it's actually something to feel depressed about.

Bob,

As you requested, I watched this video and the economist, Dr. Sachs who's the speaker is an admitted leftist. He claims that 100 U.N. ambassadors are angry at the U.S. because they are "victims" of US economic policies. And he agrees with them that the US has ruined their economies.

Although he is a big supporter of "big government", I find it interesting that he admits our economic problems are the result of a "profound failure of government". And although he didn't say it, I would have to assume that his fix would be "more government regulation" to fix it :coffee:

The economists Dr. Jeffrey Sachs, Paul Krugman & George Soros are all in bed together. They are globalists who really see the United State's free market as bad system.

I've posted on here several times when everyone was blaming him for high gas prices that POTUS has nothing to do with that.

health care inflation at its lowest rate in 50 years
National Journal Fact Check : In 2013, the most recent year for which data are available, total U.S. health care spending increased by just 3.6 percent. That's the lowest single-year increase on record, and it made 2013 the fifth straight year of historically low spending growth. Health care spending grew more slowly than the overall economy, meaning health care's share of the economy didn't get any bigger. All of this is extremely good news for the country's balance sheet. Obamacare doesn't deserve all the credit: There's usually a period of slow growth in the few years following a recession, and experts agree that's part of the slowdown we're seeing now. But many health policy experts say Obamacare is helping

Bob,

I am the eternal optimist and it is great to see good news such as the increase in the H.S. graduation numbers, but I do have a problem believing some of the folks who claim to be "fact checkers"

"Facts," someone once said, "are stubborn things." If there is one thing that is gnawing the marrow out of political coverage in America today, it's the so-called "fact checkers" whom editors of some of the nation's most prestigious publications have appointed to evaluate the veracity of statements made by candidates for public office..... http://www.usnews.com/opinion/blogs/...st-republicans

so we have to read British news?

Obamacare program costs $50,000 in taxpayer money for every American who gets health insurance, says bombshell budget report.

The numbers are daunting: It will take $1.993 trillion, a number that looks like $1,993,000,000,000, to provide insurance subsidies to poor and middle-class Americans, and to pay for a massive expansion of Medicaid and CHIP (Children's Health Insurance Program) costs.

Offsetting that massive outlay will be $643 billion in new taxes, penalties and fees related to the Obamacare law.
