House Republicans, so worried that a swelling cash deficit will keep them from making big gains this November, have begun cracking down on dozens of lawmakers who haven’t paid dues crucial to the party’s campaign accounts. It’s reached the point that Speaker John Boehner has dispatched his own team to twist some of the stragglers’ arms.
With ongoing questions about whether Obamacare enrollees will be able to use their coverage, a couple of new surveys suggest that the newly insured are generally able to get the care they need.
Brookings fellow Niam Yaraghi observed "a positive association between the anti-ACA spending and ACA enrollment." Spending on negative Obamacare ads has outpaced spending on positive ads 15 to 1, according to media research. In Senate races where Democrats are running for re-election, which have been the major targets for anti-Obamacare ads, Yaraghi detected a spike in enrollment.
"This implies that anti-ACA ads may unintentionally increase the public awareness about the existence of a governmentally subsidized service and its benefits for the uninsured," Yaraghi wrote of his findings.
But the dramatic tax cutting doesn't appear to have done nearly as much for job growth as promised.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says that Wisconsin ranked 35th of the 50 states in job growth during the first three years of Scott Walker's term, and dead last among its immediate neighbors, including, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan and Ohio.
Kansas hasn't fared much better. According to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, the state's rate of job growth has lagged the national average since Brownback's tax cuts took effect.
Adding to unfounded worries that immigrant children attempting to enter the U.S. are reintroducing a panoply of diseases such as Ebola and dengue fever, conservatives grew more agitated yesterday after “American security contractors” found what they believed to be a “Muslim prayer rug” abandoned near the Arizona border.
According to Adam Weinstein at Gawker, the “rug” is actually a diamond-patterned Adidas soccer jersey.
“These people are the authors of such tyranny that they shouldn’t whine and complain when the public doesn’t believe anything they’re saying — especially when every time I look at ‘Michelle’ or ‘Michael’ Obama, the First Lady, or First Tranny, something doesn’t look right.”
“She doesn’t look like any black woman I’ve ever known,” Jones said. “She’s got shoulders that are wider than a man’s, which physiologically doesn’t happen. You can put three heads on a man’s shoulders, and two heads on a woman’s shoulders — that’s a known anatomy.”
Senator Coburn presented these plain and simple figures.
So why is the fascist dictator "requesting" over $4 BILLION? When we can fly them all home for $20 MILLION?
Well for starters - Bobo doesn't want them to go home. He wants money that the American POOR do not have any access to - to go to non-Americans.
"There is something in the air and it’s not perfume"
"It is the death of ideas’ flowers"
"It is liberals putting themselves in strait jackets and going crazy with their silly, starched opinions".
"We’ve long thought that Harry Reid was likely going senile. We’ve had plenty of examples to support this conclusion… and now we have another"
"Now we can’t say that without a doubt the reason the murder rate (gun crime rates and violent crime rates as well) continue to drop is because gun ownership in America continues to rise… but it’s an awfully easy conclusion to arrive at".
You cannot make this shit up.
"House Republicans intend to sue the Obama administration for unilaterally delaying the employer responsibility provision of the Affordable Care Act, Politico reported on Thursday, in effect trying to speed up the implementation of the health care law.
The lawsuit will come after the administration twice delayed the provision — which requires employers with more than 50 employees to pay a fine if they don’t offer affordable quality coverage — citing complaints from firms that claimed they wouldn’t be ready to meet its requirement by 2014.
WOW!!! Talk about shooting yourself in the foot when union membership is already falling. http://onpolitics.usatoday.com/2014/07/10/afscme-union-united-negro-coll... The union donates over $25,000 according to the UNCF yearly report, the Koch Brothers donated $25 million. This is obviously an attempt by the weakened union to appear to do something bold, while really just taking back $25,000 for their coffers. Bunch of losers.
Which side of the political spectrum is violent and hateful?

Who do you folks suppose will suffer more, as a result of illegal immigrence pouring across our border? The democrats' party has a huge block of guaranteed supporters! It's the largest minority block in the US---Hispanic voters. Black voters have gotten NOTHING the last six years, and there's no reason to believe things will be better the next two years, either. Goddammit-Black People are US Citizens! They SHOULD NOT get thrown under the bus, again, by the liberal dipshits running the Country.
Something is wrong, here. He looks detached, gaunt, and has an ashen complexion. I think he has lost interest in the job. Most everyone on television has remarked on it, including some democrats. With the situation the world is in now, whoever sits in the White House has to be functioning at 100%. Does he still smoke three packs per day? That's what I've read. I'm betting he walks in one day--and resigns. To be CEO of the United States, you have to have a serious resume'. Maybe there's something to all his "present" votes in the Senate?
About half way through the clip, we can see exactly what the president means by--I'll lead from behind.
Millions of taxpayer dollars, pages of Blade support, hundreds of liberal speeches later and xunlight bites the dust.
How is this possible? Solar power is the wave of the future. Why aren't the people who support it buying it for their homes? Have the posters on here who support government funding of green energy bought even one panel yet?
