"In Oklahoma, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and her brothers grew up in “an America that invested in kids like us and helped build a future where we could flourish.” But, as she writes in her memoir, A Fighting Chance, “Today the game is rigged – rigged to work for those who have money and power… The optimism that defines us as a people has been beaten and bruised. It doesn’t have to be this way.”

Okay Teabaggers, why is there an Impeach Obama booth out front of the Oregon Kroger

Seriously. You have now lost the ability to say that Dems are making it all up.

The Important Things You Need To Know About Home Improvement

Right-wing Pussies like DTOM, Fred, Galt, GZ, and MikeyA To #OccupyDC Starting Today

Yes it's true, tens of millions of Teabaggers are going to magically appear in DC today and take over the government by camping out and demonstrating. You know, like #Occupy but with old fat nutjob armed Teabaggers riding their Rascal scooters around and waving their misspelled, racist signs.

Senate Liberals Go Ape$#!t, End Up Admitting Taxes Are Too High

Senate Democrats Introduce Tax Cut Bill for Workers
http://www.accountingtoday.com/news/senate-democrats-introduce-tax-cut-b...

"Senate Budget Committee Chairman Patty Murray, D-Wash., and two other prominent Senate Democrats introduced legislation Wednesday to update the Tax Code to help workers and families keep more of what they earn, but also double the penalty on tax preparers who do not follow the Internal Revenue Service’s due diligence requirements for claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit."

the disaster that is obamacare hits home

Okay—I’m bragging here. I’ve never been the type to have the latest electronics, Nike shoes, or cool sunglasses, but I’m proud to announce that I have joined the “in crowd” of U.S. citizens who have been negatively affected by Obamacare (eat your hearts out)!

Yep, I’m one of those people who Democrat Harry Reid described as “lying” about how Obamacare has impacted my life. Here’s my situation:

I received a letter from my health insurance company stating that “While updating your account in order to comply with the Affordable Care Act (aka “Obamacare”) we received inaccurate information from the Department of Health and Human Services. As a result, you were overcharged for 2014 medical procedures by $314.64. We are diligently working to 1) correct these inaccuracies and 2) refund your money. You should receive your refund check by May 1, 2014.” I suppose to prove that my health insurance company really wasn’t to blame, they included a copy of the document they received from HHS explaining the mistake.

So due to incompetent Obamacare, I have paid $300+ out of my pocket that I should not have—and it will take two months to receive a refund.

More BS Obamacare stories, brought to you by the Koch Bros.

Americans For Prosperity is struggling to find a way to attack Obamacare that fits the facts.

The Koch-funded conservative activist group is spending millions of dollars on TV ads aimed at undermining the Affordable Care Act and unseating Democratic senators who voted for it in their 2014 reelection fights.

But the ads keep falling flat upon examination of their claims.

IT'S OFFICIAL--SHERROD BROWN IS "NON-ESSENTIAL"

Tagged:  

I emailed Senator Sherrod Brown to ask him why he continues to support Congressional members and their staffs getting subsidies for health care that us "average" folks don't get. How arrogant it is of these politicians to treat themselves like royalty when, in fact, we are their employers.

I'm realistic enough to know I will get some standardized political-speak response, but it just irritates me that they thumb their noses at us. It really should be a non-partisan issue; Americans of all political persuasions should be outraged by this.

Anyway, I went to Brown's website and used the email feature. When I submitted my message a screen came up that said due to the shutdown of the government Senator Brown would not be able to respond to my message. What?!

MARCO RUBIO'S PRESIDENTIAL ASPIRATIONS HAVE GONE SOUTH

Geez, I hate it when I've been duped! You know--when you put your trust in someone and they turn out to be somebody completely different.

I found out about Marco Rubio through talk radio; and as I recall, I even sent him money during his primary bid against Charlie Crist. I heard him speak at CPAC and thought--this guy has presidential potential. Man was I wrong!

His support--no, his initiation--of a immigration bill has negated any chance of him ever becoming president (at least as a Republican). As we saw with Romney, if the Republican candidate doesn't have the full support of the conservative base, victory is not possible.

I don't know what's more disappointing--that Rubio has turned out to have no backbone or that he is so stupid that he thinks legalizing illegals will help the Republican party get votes.

The good news is that contrary to the popular phrase--all politics are no longer local. Rubio's election with the financial support from conservatives around the Country is proof of that. With the Internet, we can easily find out about who is running for office in the most remote parts of the U.S.--and we can donate online to the candidate or his/her opponent.

senator gets "F" in geography--and she's making decisions about our health care?!

Yaaaaaaaay

FINALLY..... We are getting "quit" of Jay Rockefeller. He says otherwise, but apparently he was in jeopardy of losing in 2014. Rockefeller egos are such that he would never let himself be voted out.

http://www.myfoxdc.com/story/20562682/apnewsbreak-rockefeller-wont-seek-...

I could never figure why West Virginians kept voting for this guy to begin with. A conservative Senator for a conservative state - makes sense to me. 2014 is looking brighter and brighter.

Senator Mourdock said what he believed

In a recent debate, Indiana Senator Richard Murdock stated that the creation of life, even in the case of rape, "Is something that God intended".

While I am quite sure this has enraged many in the US, I think that the Senator stated his opinion and his view. Life is so precious that if created, could be of a plan that we cannot or choose not to conceptualize that it deserves to be protected.

GOP Mayor threatens to take down Teacher's Union

The GOP Mayor of Chicago has taken the ultra-radical uber-extreme position of preventing the teachers of Chicago from getting their RIGHTFULLY DESERVED pay raise. LOL

The teachers did what Democrats do best, walk out without doing a job. Just like the Dems in the Washington State Legislature, just like the US Senate Budget Committee and US Senate.

Through all this we do know one important thing. Regardless of what you think of Charter schools, by 4pm Central they will officially be smarter than their public school counterparts by two days.

SHERROD BROWN--GET A CLUE--WHY SHOULD WE ALL CARE ABOUT THE UAW AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY

Just saw the political advertisement where Sherrod Brown extols the importance of the auto industry. As a life-long Toledoan, it has taken me awhile, but I now can see through the "we all need to buy UAW-made cars" malarkey. (Notice how I refuse to use the term "American-made"--that terminology went away with the advent of Ohio-made Hondas and Italian-owned Chrysler.)

Although I haven't purchased a UAW car in about 22 years, I used to feel a little guilty about it. You know the whole "support unions" mantra. Now that I'm aware of the politicalization of unions, I will NEVER buy a UAW auto.

Anyway, back to the Brown ad. According to Cleveland.com, Brown's claim that the parts of the Chevy Cruze LTZ that he drives in the ad are all made in Ohio isn't altogether true (shocking!).

Republicans Repudiate Pay Equity for American Women

Apparently, Republicans in the United States Senate do not think that women are worth as much as men.

The United States Senate has failed to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act that would provide equal pay for women performing equal work as men. The failure to assure equality falls squarely on the shoulders of Senate Republicans, all of whom voted against Paycheck Fairness.

Obama Supporters Looking for Their "Obama Bucks"

A growing number of us can't help but wonder--what person who has even the slightest clue of what's going on in this Country could still support Obama. A video has been made that highlights some of the fine individuals who love Obama because he "gives them stuff." Well, to be exact, the taxpayers are paying for these able-bodied men who are busy making babies (one of whom admits he has 5 children by 4 different "baby mommas") to sit around and do nothing.
