Obamacare 37, Republicans 0: House GOP Loses Again on Repeal Vote
The actual vote lasted maybe 10 minutes, and the final score—229 Yeas to 195 Nays—was about as surprising as an inappropriate comment by Joe Biden. Come 6:30, the long, enervating adventure was gaveled close, at last setting everyone free.
Until next time.

The House voted to repeal Obamacare.

Voters now have a chance to change the Senate to be reflective of their desire to ditch this monstrosity.

When the pain of Obamacare hits home in 2014, this will happen.

Hello, the stocks are currently being propped up by government printing of money. Once the money printing stops the stocks will level to a realistic reflection. It is a dangerous time to play the stock market

There are usually four Marines detailed to the White House at any given time. They volunteer for what is considered the exclusive duty. Their main duty is to act as (mostly ceremonial) guards outside the West Wing lobby, where they open and close the door for White House officials.
They work in 30-minute shifts for as long as the president is working in the West Wing, finishing when he retires to his private quarters. They are familiar sight to people who visit the White House and visible to tourists outside the gates on the Pennsylvania Avenue.
They aim to be solemn an unflinching. Colleagues lauded a Marine who didn’t react when a Christmas tree feel next to him in 2006 as example for successors.
The Marines work while the President is at work in the West Wing, and finish he retires to his private quarters.
Attending events like Obama’s Rose Garden presser with Erdogan Thursday is another part of the Marines’ duties.

Obama will leave office in a few years having left the nation much better off than he found it and if you live that long you'll still be talking RW loon bullsht.
All politics is local__except for dingbats, conspiracy freaks, bigots and racists like you. jbs.org is ready when you are.
That's probably a 501 (c)(4) too lol.
You have absolutely no room to talk about me or anyone else being wrong about anything.

I've had to keep you in the loop about current events a half dozen times just in the past month.

And you will have to prove once and for all what I have been so wrong about for me to respond to you again.

<quoted text>And the US Marines that serve in the US embassies around the world serve in similar fashion. Ceremonial-decorative! It's damn good duty__certainly not like Khe Sahn or the Barracks in Lebanon but nice clean duty like the Queens Guard.
They do not provide security__that's a fact.
So part of that decoration is being an umbrella stand?

You must not have been paying attention.
I want to lower the costs of health care which are off the friggin' charts because physicians charge us for their outrageous malpractice insurance and run every last test with the most expenive machines just to cover their butts from frivolous lawsuits.
Then...after addressing the above problems and encorporating the more practical solutions proposed by Repubican...the focus should be squarely placed on the medical profession and what under God's green earth could cost so friggin' much that we're in this mess to begin with.
The cost of providing government-funded free clinics to the truly less fortunate would be a drop in the bucket compared to the alternative.
So, you expect doctors to take the risk of losing their entire life savings, homes, and families just because some crazy jury returns a huge verdict based on questionable evidence?

Exactly who do you think should pay for malpractice insurance?

Limit lawsuits to actual damages or pay the freight.

Obamacare was litigated in 2012.
Magic underpants lost that one.

There is absolutely no way to prove whether anybody who posts here is a veteran or not (or anything else for that matter), so any claims of authority or knowledge because of such claimed service are worthless.

Those who brag the most, like Ghost, are the most likely phonies, particularly when they are caught in numerous lies about other aspects of their lives.
