The Department of Health and Human Services has crowned a YouTube video entitled “Forget About The Price Tag” as the grand prize winner in a contest meant to encourage young people to sign up for Obamacare.

The video contest, announced in August — in partnership with a group called Young Invincibles — encouraged participants to produce clips filled with pro-Obamacare messaging.

But is going to decrease expenses for EVERY AMERICAN!

Another round of no concessions? As part of the short-term agreement struck in mid-October, Congress gave itself until Jan. 15 to pass a budget, and until Dec. 13 to reach a tentative deal at the committee level. It's Dec. 4, and despite weeks of talks the budget negotiations have only crept forward. And Congress really only has five more days this month to do anything. While the House is in session, the Senate doesn't return until next week -- and Speaker John Boehner plans to adjourn the House for holiday recess next Friday.

Maybe they would buy it if it was preObama pricing?

During today's White House Youth Summit, President Obama called on young people to do whatever they can to promote his signature health care law — including plying their customers with cheap booze.

"If you are a bartender, have a happy hour," Obama said as the crowd laughed. "And also probably get health insurance because a lot of people don't have it."

When will the costs to middle class be reimbursed? I will not raise taxes a single dime on the middle class, no increases at all in any of your taxes... wooden nosed Pinocchio!!

The entirety of the federal debt is the consequence of accumulated Republican deficit spending, first under Reagan and Bush and then, following Clinton's transformation of then-record deficits into record surpluses, Bush II coming along and turning them back into new record deficits, with two unfunded wars, tax cuts and corporate welfare for the few richest elites and failure to apply executive oversight over regulation of financial and capital markets leading to an economic collapse that Obama came along and rescued from free fall. The respondants need to do their homework

More than 50 percent of respondents in the survey, taken between October 30 and November 11, said they disapproved of how the Democratic president handled key issues in his second term, including Syria, Iran, the economy, healthcare and the federal budget deficit.

The total number of people in the United States now receiving federal disability benefits hit a record 10,982,920 in November, up from the previous record of 10,978,040 set in May, according to newly released data from the Social Security Administration.

The 10,982,920 Americans taking disability benefits in November outnumbered the total population of Greece, which is 10,772,967, according to the Central Intelligence Agency.

For the first time in nearly 40 years, a majority of Americans believe the United States is less important around the world and that it should mind its own business, a stunning rejection of President Obama’s foreign policy just four years after he received the Nobel Prize.

Is it over? NOT!

The number of banking institutions in the U.S. has dwindled to its lowest level since at least the Great Depression, as a sluggish economy, stubbornly low interest rates and heightened regulation take their toll on the sector.

The number of federally insured institutions nationwide shrank to 6,891 in the third quarter after this summer falling below 7,000 for the first time since federal regulators began keeping track in 1934, according to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.

I suggest you look up the meaning of loser in the dictionary. After the picture of Obama it says "noun 1. a person or thing that loses or has lost something, esp. a game or contest. synonyms: defeated person,"

As far as the next election LOL! We will see if America is ready for some real Change back!

Jeers to TOT: always trying to hijack a discussion for her anti-Obama rants. Grow up TOT. Get over it. Your party will have another chance to put forth another losing candidate next time around. Maybe you should complain internally to find a candidate that is worth backing. but for now, grow up, get over it and for God's sake, change the channel. The Glenn Beck show is warping what little ability you have left to make a rational thought.

Happy to see the jeers someone who rents with two cars in the household, it is difficult, my boyfriend works an evening shift and when he gets home we have to play musical cars to get both of us off the street to avid a parking ticket. I would much prefer the odd/even parking!

Sharyl Attkisson uncovered another Obama administration falsehood about ObamaCare on Tuesday's CBS This Morning, spotlighting a 2010 document from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services which "estimated ObamaCare would collectively reduce the number of people with employer-sponsored health coverage by about 14 million". This is contrary to the White House's "repeated assurances that nothing will change for those insured through work".

Not made up... this is the actual TRUTH.

People who bought or rent should have checked for spaces to park. Now that they didn't; DO NOT complain. We do have 4 seasons here.

Relax people. The O-C-D (Obama, Cuomo, Dayton) economy is getting more and more cars off our roads everyday. Poverty solves lots of problems.

I agree with Lizzie, or you could just move to where there is no snow for the winter. 72 here today!

People haven't even adapted to the current parking ban.... Common sense isn't all that common around here.

As for the ruts on a lawn, grass grows back, and if the lawn is already snow covered, you're really parking on snow, and frozen ground, not grass.

I rented for many years, 30 years ago, it wasn't too difficult to abide by.

What ever happened to alternate side parking. (odd/even side based on the date)? With these automatic notification telephone systems, why couldn't residents get notification to move their cars for those times when plowing is necessary?

Cheers to the LH for speaking against the parking ban. However if this winter is like those from the past we could hold off on it until February. I can't imagine why a parking ban is not as per weather. It snows 2" get your car off the street. As far as the "surprise" snowfall... it is a surprise to the plow crews also. Many times it is a surprise that anything more than a salt truck comes down the street anyway. How about a parking ban on all but residential streets then a get them all off the street by 10pm when there is any snow on the road? It this plan too confusing for a tiny city in Fulton county? I think that most would adapt quickly!
