Barack Obama, our next President

Overturning The Voting Rights Act Would Be Seminal Moment For Conservative Legal Movement

Section 5 has been validated four times by the Supreme Court, in 1966, 1973, 1980 and 1999, noting that the 15th Amendment authorizes Congress to enforce the ban on discriminatory voting laws. But the ideological makeup of today’s Court means another victory will be a tough slog for defenders, as five justices have sympathized with the notion that Section 5 is unfair.

“Things have changed in the South,” wrote Chief Justice John Roberts in 2009.

Shapiro expects the Court to invalidate Section 5, or at least Section 4(b), which specifies the jurisdictions that are covered. Either would be a victory, he says, seeing “no plausible circumstance” where Congress will be able to justify why any regions require preclearance

It's very much the opposite. The president rarely meets with republicans or makes an effort to work with them.

He sends someone out with briefings but rarely asks for input. He doesn't take questions from the press and insulates himself from any potential criticism.

The republicans met him halfway with his "balanced approach". He reneged on his half of the bargain. Now he wants to raise taxes yet again without addressing spending cuts.

This is not acceptable leadership.

He has employed every scare tactic in the book to convince you the world is coming to an end on Friday just to get his way.

Again, this is not acceptable leadership. And you, too, deep down know it.

Rick Scott’s ObamaCare Flip-Flop
Never mind that expanding Medicaid would make those millions of voters dependent on government for their health care, and thus would expand the constituency for more government spending and higher taxes.
http://www.cato.org/blog/rick-scotts-obamacar...
just another big government republican.
Rick Scotts family were welfare recipients when he was a child; his brother is on welfare in Texas and Rick Scott committed the single largest act of Medicare fraud in the history of this country. He should be in prison.
A man who ran mental health clinics here and committed Medicare fraud just got sentenced to 14 years in prison, for probably a third of what Rick Scott stole. Go figure.
He probably has his eye on that money, he still owns free standing clinics here called Sonicare.

<quoted text>The U.S. Treasury
Ok. Once again for the really stupid people in the class... Homer.

The Department of Treasury isn't a source of money. The Department of Treasury is a repository for money collected from a source of money.
If you are still confused, read the Constitution where it states how bills of revenue can be generated. Your answer requires that Congress pass legislation to tax the department of Treasury to put money into the Department of Treasury.
I know that makes sense to Democrats, but to any person who actually thinks, it is a ludicrous answer.
To answer the question, you have to identify a source of money sufficient to tax to pay for Obama's government.

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Add Speaker Boehner to the growing list of Republicans accusing the White House of a conspiracy to release illegal immigrant detainees in order to frighten Americans into demanding an end to sequestration cuts. Immigration officials say several hundred detainees are being freed due to the upcoming budget cuts this week.

"I'm looking for more facts," Boehner told CBS News, "but I can't believe that they can't find the kind of savings they need out of that department short of letting criminals go free."

He added that the situation was "outrageous."

"This is very hard for me to believe, that they can't find cuts elsewhere in their agency," Boehner said.

5 Sequester Facts to Know Before Committing Suicide
1. The Cuts Are Tiny!

The actual cuts in fiscal year 2013 are only $44 billion, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). The rest don't even take place until 2014 or later. Whether you use $44 billion or $85 billion we're talking about 1 or 2 percent of total government spending.

2. Spending is Still Going Up!

Even with the sequester, the federal government is expected to spend more this year than it did last year. The government spent $3.5 trillion in 2012 and i expected to spend $3.6 trillion in 2013 (see Summary Table 1).

3. The Pentagon Won't Starve!

The largest chunk of cuts will come out of the defense budget, which has doubled over the past decade. The Pentagon will still have about $500 billion at its disposal, not counting war-related and emergency appropriations.

4. You Can't Cut Nonexistent Programs!

The White House's Office of Management and Budget says the sequester will cut a whopping $2 million from the $20 million budget for the National Drug Intelligence Center. That sounds pretty bad - until you realize the Drug Intelligence Center closed its door in June 2012.

5. It Was All Obama's Idea!

The whole damn sequester was the Obama administration's idea. As the Washington Post's Bob Woodward has reported, despite Obama's denials to the contrary, "the automatic spending cuts were initiated by the White House" as part of the deal to raise the debt limit back in August 2011.

So as members of the president's cabinet and party rail against the draconian nature of the sequester and the unfairness of it all, it's worth keeping in mind that these cuts are genuinely puny.

And that the president has nobody to blame but himself.

Obama rarely meets with Democrats, too. He's not even involved in government until the Democrats need him to read something from a teleprompter to promote their Marxist agenda.
