There is zero, zip, nada chance that the house would approve any additional funding for Obamacare.

And additional funding, lots of it, will be necessary as the program crashes.

Boehner is gone as Speaker if he allows the amnesty bill to pass.

Because Fox News and idiotic right wing nutcases like Glenn Beck told him so. Of course, the FACT Romney paid taxes to foreign countries and used the foreign tax credit to offset taxes he owed in the United States is completely acceptable in their eyes. Manipulation of the tax code is OK just as long as it is to their advantage. Screw everyone else.
Any American citizen cam deduct taxes paid to foreign countries, for dividends for example, from his US income tax.

Your failure to understand 100 minus 41 equals 59 makes you an idiot.
I had it right.
The lie was saying that if you don't call yourself Pro Choice then you don't believe in abortions except for special cases.

Galt believes in a woman's right to choose to kill her baby prior to viability for whatever reason she chooses, but that aborting a viable fetus is infanticide.

Galt also believes that abortion is immoral, even if not illegal.

The term "pro-choice" is subject to so many interpretations as to be meaningless.

The poll had respondents stating

53% saying that abortion should be legal under special circumstances
22% illegal
21% legal under any circumstances

As angry as it makes Dave at least 59% of the population thinks abortion should be limited/illegal in most or all circumstances.

Instead of the above numbers which would have pushed this to 75% I used the Pro Choice number as the indicator

Most who claim to be "pro-choice" are actually pro-abortion.

Yes, that very odd stat that 100 minus 41 equals 59.
In your case, it's 100 apples minus 41 oranges equals 59 lemons

You're just not smart enough to know the difference son.

It is funny Progressives keep promoting Hilary as the 2016 winner though she hasn't entered the race so you don't have a candidate at the plate either.
Well gee son. It's cons who keep promoting her.

And clearly, they can't promote their own....

... because they don't have one.

Obviously cons believe even Hillary is better than anyone they have.
