Just heard something on the radio that I need to look into further. Seems in the 26 states that are not going to set up the exchanges the people cannot be fined for not having insurance nor can the businesses. More over nobody in those states are required to buy insurance if they choose not to. Seems the wording of the law requires the states to set up the exchanges before the people must comply. It also doesn't give the federal government the right to force the people to buy insurance or pay the tax without the states consent. As I say I need to check on this more.

My point was that the U.S. is two very different countries, urban vs. suburban/rural. At present, the urban vote is submerging the interests of most of the country.

I ask you this, Homer, if Obama is such a great President than why does he continue to lie to the American people about Benghazi?
What is he trying to hide? Why haven't we seen the seven hours of tapes erased by the white house in a blatant attempt to slay the messenger? Hmmmmm?
He isn't lying about anything Carol, Senate and House hearings have shown that. What seven hours of erased tapes liar?

The criminal element in society will always need to find a way to earn big bucks without working. At least with drugs, they largely victimize each other.
Stupid questions?

Apparently you have no clue about the difficulties felons face in the job market. Even the better/busier temp labor pools perform background checks these days to satisfy their insurers.

Has your party made any significant spending cuts since the "Reagan Revolution"?

Didn't think so yet you continue to vote for them.

That's why spending can't be cut, neither of the parties y'all vote for will do it.

IO'll save you some time.

The States that choose not to set up their own exchanges give the power to the Feds!!

So the Feds will step in and set up exchanges, with no State input.
HAHA

That will give Rick Perry and others something else to whine about.

Jan Brewer was smart enough to see the damage this would do to her states' ability to influence the setting up of exchanges.

Even Rick Scott is reconsidering..........

Can't separate by state borders.

New York and California both have distinct regions that do not follow the blue state model.

At least sixty of the sixty-seven counties in Pennsylvania are republican.

California taxation is so top-heavy that 30,000 taxpayers are providing most of the state revenue.

I believe it because the Democrats and the Republicans for years have both wanted & attempted to repeal the 22th amendment and I do believe with Obama currently in office that both parties will jump at idea and both parties know that there wont be any obstructions either since both parites want it.

American interference in the Libyan civil war and gun-running to the rebels caused Benghazi.
Gun running to the rebels? LMAO. The CIA was conducting an illegal war in Libya you stupid fk, out of the Benghazi base where Woods and two dozen just like him managed groups numbering up to 100 per operative. Petreaus's main squeeze Broadwell spoke publicly about the goings on there including that the base was at times used to hold prisoners. Was the real purpose of the consulate? Cover for the nearby CIA base perhaps?

Why was the Ambassador in Benghazi without his security team?

We didn't learn that in the hearings did we? That info is classified so tell us again__what was purpose of the hearings?

GOP launches internet 'survey' to figure out what went wrong

Do you want to help the Republican Party figure out what went wrong, in 2012? Of course you do. Towards that end, the Republican party has launched the Growth & Opportunity Project, chaired by such luminaries as Henry Barbour and Ari Fleischer, to recommend how best to not screw things up quite so horribly next time. And to help with that, they're using that most scientific of all tools, an internet survey.

The questions are, sadly, rather generic:

Which issues do you think Republicans should spend MORE time talking about?(please select one)
- Fiscal issues, like taxes, government spending, and the debt
- Economic issues, like unemployment, housing, and high energy prices
- National Security issues, like terrorism, foreign policy, and national defense
- Social issues, like abortion and family values

They also ask you to rate how much "improvement" the party needs in areas like "Diversity within the Party" and "How the Party communicates with voters."

Republicans looking to interject their opinions will probably be disappointed, however. In a dozen or so pages of questions to fill out, only four or so invite you to give your input on the actual Republican Party and their efforts. All the others are demographic questionsódata mining stuff. What's your name? What age are you? What's your email address, little feller? You know, the kind of questions you teach your kids not to answer during their own internet sessions.

Hey, at least the party leaders are asking for opinions, right? Your opinion is only worth about 1/4th of the content on an actual opinion survey, but it's a start? Surely it's not just a flimsy effort towards party list-building under the guise of momentary introspection.
