New York lawmaker: 2013 ‘a superb year’ to pass single-payer health care

New York Assemblyman Richard Gottfried on Thursday introduced legislation to implement a single-payer health care system in the state, a proposal commonly referred to as “Medicare for all.”

Under a single-payer system, the state would pay for health care costs using a tax-payer funded insurance pool, similar to how Medicare operates at the federal level. The state of Vermont plans to implement a single-payer system by 2017. The California legislature approved a single-payer bill in 2008, but it was vetoed by then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Drones and strange bedfellows: Why neocons are showing Obama some love
And why liberals are starting to turn a cold shoulder. As John Brennan heads into his confirmation hearing, it's apparently opposite day in Washington
But there's a reason Congress hasn't made much of a stink about the issue over the past four years. "Put simply: Americans love drones." A series of polls shows that Americans' support for drone strikes "is not only wide but also bipartisan," and if conservatives are more forgiving of Obama now, perhaps it's because more Republicans than Democrats approve of the strikes.

The Fair Employment Practices Commission (FEPC) implemented US Executive Order 8802, requiring that companies with government contracts not discriminate on the basis of race or religion. It was intended to help African Americans and other minorities obtain jobs in the homefront industry. On June 25, 1941, President Roosevelt created the Fair Employment Practices Committee (FEPC) by signing Executive Order 8802, which stated, "there shall be no discrimination in the employment of workers in defense industries or government because of race, creed, color, or national origin."
In 1943, Roosevelt greatly strengthened the FEPC with a new executive order, Executive Order 9346. It required that all government contracts have a non-discrimination clause.

Deadbeat dad and loser ex-congressman finally gets a job so maybe he can stop being a deadbeat again

While the ink's not quite dry yet, Walsh told the Daily Herald Wednesday that he will sign on as a Monday-through-Friday talk show host

Walsh is no doubt very happy to have the opportunity to spread his deep thoughts about freedom 'n stuff on the airwaves, but the best part is that now he can go back to paying all that child support he owes and always seem to have such a hard time paying

But now Joe has a job that will allow him to tell you, Monday through Friday, just how much he hates that—and, more importantly, he can start supporting his family again. After all, this is the guy who was honored by the Family Research Council for his "unwavering support of the family." Not his family, of course, just the family.

Congratulations, Joe. And congratulations to Joe's long-suffering abandoned family

Yep. Finally a little light. But still far below the 360,000 jobs a month we need plus 130,000 people still dropped out of the workforce.

They say it is because of Sandy.

Actually, Holder and the White House both said "no", but not in the way you think. The White House responded to Paul's filibuster by issuing a two-sentence response:

“It has come to my attention that you have now asked an additional question:‘Does the President have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on American soil?’ The answer to that question is no,” Attorney General Eric Holder wrote.

(He could never quite form the word and say it out loud before.)

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney read the letter during his daily press briefing.

...Of course, the wording issued by the WH - "engaged in combat" on American soil - doesn't specifically indicate "terrorists" engaged in combat. Leaves a gap for interpretation if people should protest against this government but pose no threat to the country.

It's just that a lot of us don't trust this president any further than we can throw him. He clearly doesn't like any opposition.

Officials in high places surrounding this president have threatened to silence a few in their own party for simply criticizing his policies.

If you remember, this president publicly tried to silence Fox News and went so far as to censor Fox journalists from attending press conferences early in his administration until, of all people, the liberal media stood up and chastised him and said, "No, you can't do that!"

You see, we're not in Kansas anymore. Anything can happen in the Land of Oz or, as Rand Paul put it, down the rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland.

Good morning, Selecia.

what is wrong with looking gay? i thought libs approve of such looks and promote/defend it in every aspect of our culture. but, obviously as a woman who had to settle, you go for the gold tooth, skinny guy with a goatee look. the kind that NEVER played sports except for shooting baskets or each other at baby mama showers.

Still denying the Model A followed the Model T!! You bring stupid to new heights!!

And I'' gladly exploit your ignorance!!

I love watching you and your series of lies self destruct!! As you try to run away from your earlier comments.

So you claim to find links, but you were too stupid to find the one that said the Model T was followed by the Model A?? Hell, all you had to do is look up Henry Ford!! You were too busy looking at kiddie porn!!

Mommy limit your Google usage?? Again?? HAHAHA

Seeing as you're too dumb to find it, here it is:

""By 1926, flagging sales of the Model T finally convinced Henry to make a new model. He pursued the project with a great deal of technical expertise in design of the engine, chassis, and other mechanical necessities, while leaving the body design to his son. Edsel also managed to prevail over his father's initial objections in the inclusion of a sliding-shift transmission.

The result was the successful Ford Model A, introduced in December 1927 and produced through 1931, with a total output of more than 4 million. Subsequently, the Ford company adopted an annual model change system similar to that recently pioneered by its competitor General Motors (and still in use by automakers today). Not until the 1930s did Ford overcome his objection to finance companies, and the Ford-owned Universal Credit Corporation became a major car-financing operation.""

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Ford

As I said, the Model T begat the Model A!!

----------

You lose again!! But you've been losing since Mommy dropped you on your pointed head 70 years ago and yo saw all the shining electrons spin!!

NEXT!!

So, as I said, The Model T begat the Model A." And you're an idiot!!

same thing Holder told Cruz 2 days ago.
so what's the big deal? or maybe: how many times will Eric have to repeat himself?
It was the idea of drones flying over our heads while we're sipping our coffee in an outdoor cafe and hoping a "suspected terrorist" wasn't right sitting beside us.

Drones carrying deadly arsenals simply don't belong in the skies above American soil - especially when we have an administration who unashamedly wants to silence his opposition and half the population.

Holder could never quite get that as a legitimate concern.

Charles Krauthammer:

Who has the authority to decide life and death targeting?

In war, the ultimate authority is always the commander in chief and those in the lawful chain of command to whom he has delegated such authority.

This looks troubling. Obama sitting alone in the Oval Office deciding what individuals to kill. But how is that different from Lyndon Johnson sitting in his office choosing bombing targets in North Vietnam?

Moreover, we firebombed entire cities in World War II. Who chose? Commanders under the ultimate authority of the president. No judicial review, no outside legislative committee, no secret court, no authority above the president.

OK, you say. But today’s war is entirely different: no front line, no end in sight.

So what? It’s the jihadists who decided to make the world a battlefield and to wage war in perpetuity. Until they abandon the field, what choice do we have but to carry the fight to them?

We have our principles and precedents for lawful warmaking, and a growing body of case law for the more vexing complexities of the present war — for example, the treatment of suspected terrorists apprehended on U.S. soil. The courts having granted them varying degrees of habeas corpus protection, it is obvious that termination by drone is forbidden — unless Congress and the courts decide otherwise, which, short of a Taliban invasion from New Brunswick, is inconceivable.

Now, for those who believe that the war on terror is not war but law enforcement,(a) I concede that they will find the foregoing analysis to be useless and (b) I assert that they are living on a different and distant planet.
