Yeah, I know. They live in an alternate universe where more than half, at least, of the country is evil, insane, socialist, communist, fascist, racist, liars, lazy and out to get them.

Here's what happened in Congress:

The Republicans unanimously voted to repeal protections to stop health insurance companies from discriminating on the basis of gender.

No minimum wage to give 30 million Americans the same pay workers got back in 1968, adjusted for inflation.

Voted to repeal the “Affordable Care Act” 33 times. Their hatred for Obamacare is not because they want full Medicare for all. It's because they want to voucherize Medicare and hand patients over to Aetna and Pfizers, et al, who return the favor with campaign cash.

Republicans rage against any attempts to stop the shipping or outsourcing of American jobs to communist and fascist regimes abroad that know how to keep their workers in powerless penury. Why? Because that is what the non-patriotic U.S. global corporations want them to do. Anything Big Oil wants, it gets– retain big subsidies, tax breaks, weaken pollution restrictions, lease everywhere, and even give relief to oil companies when they damaged the Gulf Coast.

Voted to weaken the Clean Air Act, drinking water safety standards, cut funding for these cancer preventing, health protecting programs while pushing for more military weapons and bloated Pentagon budgets.
Republicans went so far as to vote for polluters over children, pregnant women and people who live in nursing homes and assisted-living facilities. Republicans voted to block the EPA mercury and air toxics standards that the agency estimated would save 12,000 lives every year and prevent more than one million asthma attacks.

Republicans want to weaken the National Labor Relations Board and labor laws. But when it comes to protecting the lowest tax rates and loopholes for the very wealthy, well that's another story.

While Republicans rail against Obama for not doing anything to lower gas prices, they are voting against measures to regulate oil and gas speculators who drive up gas prices, a fact recognized by the CEO of Exxon a few years ago in a Senate hearing.

CNN Says Obama's Math "Still Doesn't Add Up"

The President's new economic plan is out. He plans to drastically reduce the deficit... with borrowed money...?

Wasn't that the OLD plan?

According to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) analysis:

"Over the 2013-2022 period, the cumulative deficit that would result from enacting the President's budget -$6.4 Trillion...(or 3.2% of GDP)- would be $3.5 Trillion larger than the cumulative deficit projected under current law."

The NLRB has no business telling a private company where it may locate. You probably have no idea what I am referring to, since you are an Obamatronic.

You know, Pflug, he's probably upset that he is missing a day of golf. He returns to the White House, for once in his miserable presidency, to feign interest in a storm, something that he can do nothing about unlike the attack in Benghazi. Do you think he'll stand out on the portico, raise his arms high above his head, raise his chin at the precise angle, and command the winds and the seas to be calm?

You are really too, too stupid, aren't you! My reference to the NRLB is pretty clear, don't you think? And what other items do you take issue with? Any of them? Didn't think so.

When you can't defend your "dear leader," resort to attacking someone's grammar and spelling in order to deflect. But, what makes it even funnier is when the spelling police make spelling errors when pointing out someone else's spelling errors.

Bloomberg News confirmed through using a Freedom of Information Act request that Mitt Romney set up a charitable remainder unitrust (CRUT) in June 1996 just before Congress cracked down on the loophole in 1997. While Republicans have extolled Romney for his charitable donations, most of them are contributions to the Mormon Church, and according to this, the church will likely receive even less than the primary donation, while he is benefiting.


Individuals who had already set up these vehicles were allowed to keep them. That included Mitt Romney, then the chief executive officer of Bain Capital, who had just established such an arrangement in June 1996.

“In this instance, Romney used the tax-exempt status of a charity — the Mormon Church, according to a 2007 filing — to defer taxes for more than 15 years,” Bloomberg’s Jesse Drucker explained.“At the same time he is benefitting, the trust will probably leave the church with less than what current law requires.”

Yea, cause GOD FORBID someone wants to keep more of THEIR money! But what's the bigger picture here?

!!!! HE DID IT LEGALLY !!!!

You need to also consider the fact that this was created in 1969 during a tax reform law, when a DEMOCRAT was in office!

But the bottom line here .... WHO F*CKING CARES! There is NO story here and this is just another attempt from a jackass that sees Obama doing NO wrong regardless of what he does OR has done! It's pathetic that you can't step outside of the sh*t view you have and look at candidates as individuals and instead choose to reduce yourself to picking a side and staying with it come hell or high water. You evidently have no issue going down with the ship, even though you know it's got a gigantic hole in the damn thing and is going to sink! ANYONE who walks around with a narrow mind like that is in the same place.

FACT: If what Obama has done the last 4 years was done by a Republican (i.e. RECORD BREAKING debt, RECORD BREAKING spending, RECORD BREAKING borrowing, the constant lie and cover up, the changes he has made to welfare reform, the constant failed so-called "investments", etc) they would have been CRUCIFIED!

But Obama does it, and it's OK cause people that believe in their 'Messiah' have no problem looking past how much of a failure he has been and instead, pick at little news stories like charitable remainder unitrusts (CRUT) and somehow think this is a story.

REALLY? I mean..... REALLY!?!?!?

If Obama was Republican, I would vote him OUT. If Romney was Democrat, I would vote him IN. I could give a sh*t anymore about party lines cause they are so blurred anymore. I want my government smaller and out of my life except where they are supposed to be, the budget balanced, waste eliminated, more of MY money back, the 53% that don't pay into 'Federal Income Taxes' to start paying (Fair Share ya know!) OR invoke a tax code that makes sense (like Fair Tax), I want a law to push able bodied people OFF of Welfare after 2 years, my borders protected, my military strong, significantly reduce or eliminate taxes on businesses that stay within the US and put a fair or proportionate tax on those that choose to move out of this country, and so on.

You give me a candidate that's even close to these types of qualifications, they have my vote, regardless of their party.
