Barack Obama, our next President

The "Congressional Budget Office" scored the "Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act" and said Thursday "the bill would increase Medicaid costs from $75 million to $400 million over 10 years", "mostly due" "to" "an increase in births". "Estimating that one-quarter of pregnancies" "that would have been" "terminated" after "20 weeks" would instead, under the law, be carried to term, the CBO said "federal spending" for Medicaid "would increase" by $225 million.

Women Fight Back: Ohio Bill Makes Erectile Dysfunction Her Business
You want to regulate our ovaries, uteri and order us to carry state-mandated children? Well, fine. We want to regulate your erectile dysfunction.
That’s the message of state Democratic Senator Nina Turner’s erectile dysfunction bill in Ohio (SB307). The bill is meant to inflict the same sort of humiliation and violation of privacy on men as mostly male legislators are inflicting upon women across the country, but is wisely being sold under the exact same disingenuous “concern” as Republicans sell their attempts to control women’s wombs.
Turner sweetly pointed out,“I certainly want to stand up for men’s health and take this seriously and legislate it the same way mostly men say they want to legislate a woman’s womb.”
SB 307 requires that:
(A) No person other than a physician shall issue to a patient a prescription for a drug intended to treat symptoms of erectile dysfunction.
(B) Prior to issuing a prescription for a drug intended to treat symptoms of erectile dysfunction, a physician shall do all of the following:
(1) Obtain from the patient a notarized affidavit in which at least one of the patient’s sexual partners certifies that the patient has experienced symptoms of erectile dysfunction in the ninety days preceding the date on the affidavit;
(2) Refer the patient to a sexual therapist approved by the state medical board for an assessment of the possible causes of the patient’s symptoms of erectile dysfunction and obtain a written report in which the therapist concludes that the patient’s symptoms are not solely attributable to one or more psychological conditions;
(3) Conduct a cardiac stress test and obtain a result, described in writing, indicating that the patient’s cardiac health is compatible with sexual activity;
(4) Notify the patient in writing of the potential risks and complications associated with taking drugs intended to treat erectile dysfunction and obtain the patient’s signature on a form acknowledging the patient’s receipt of the notification;
(5) Declare in writing, under penalty of perjury, that the drug the physician is prescribing is necessary to treat the patient’s symptoms of erectile dysfunction and attach to the declaration a statement that clearly describes the physician’s medical rationale for issuing the prescription;
(6) Place all documents described in divisions (B)(1) to (5) of this section in the patient’s medical record and retain the documents as part of that record for not less than seven years.
These steps are all sound medical suggestions that are often overlooked out of courtesy to a man’s ego and in deference to his privacy.
If all that was free, as well as the medication, same as birth control and abortion, many men with that serious medical problem would agree. Provided that women were subject to similar conditions.

So what's your point,you creepy-ass cracker.

I want to understand this. the poor don't make enough to pay federal incom taxes. the rich pay most of the federal income taxes in this country.
Here's a visual aid for you l.l.w.
poor = 0% federal income taxes
Rich = 71% federal income taxes
Poor people get something called earned income credit, money in addition to what they made, from the government.
Rich people do not get earned income tax credit.
Where does earned income credit come from? Not the poor, they don't pay federal income tax. Maybe they get it from the 71%?
I don't know where you get your information but it is wayyyy off base and certainly not based on FACTS.

From the IRS, "Summary of Federal Income Tax Data, 2010"

The Top 1% of Tax payers (with ADJUSTED incomes above $369,691) paid 37.4% of total income taxes collected for an average tax rate of 23.39%.
The Top 5% of Tax payers (with ADJUSTED incomes above $161,579 -- hardly "Rich") paid 59
.1% of total income taxes for an average tax rate of 20.64%.

The Top 25% of Tax payers (with ADJUSTED incomes above $69,126) paid 87.1% of total incomes taxes collected for an average tax rate of 15.22%.

The Top 50% of Tax payers (with ADJUSTED incomes above $34,338) paid 97.6% of total income taxes collected for an average tax rate of 13.06%.

For the record the "rich" may not get an income tax credit but they certainly get something far better....loopholes and reduced tax rates not available to "poor people".

That was totally pathetic.
You are really scraping the bottom levels of stupid.
The IRS has blown more than that in the last few years with parties and idiotic training films.
An ad calling for the abolishment of the IRS incorrectly claimed that the federal agency’s budget increased by $2 billion. In fact, it’s down by nearly $1 billion during President Barack Obama’s first term. To its credit, though, Americans for Fair Taxation, the group behind the ad, removed the $2 billion reference after we asked about it.

In the original ad, a narrator accuses an “out of control” IRS of “playing politics” while the words “$2 billion budget increase” appear on screen. The 30-second spot was posted to the group’s YouTube channel on June 12. On the same day, the Washington Post wrote that the anti-tax group would spend “in the mid-six-figures” to air it, beginning June 17.

No explanation or citation is provided for when the $2 billion increase was supposed to have occurred. After FactCheck.org questioned the $2 billion figure, Curtis Ellis, a spokesman for the group, said that it had made a mistake and would fix the ad. And it did.

So what's your point,you creepy-ass cracker.

Despite a rule that bars Medicare reimbursement for erectile dysfunction (ED) treatments, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) paid out $3.1 million for the drugs in 2007 and 2008, a new government report found.

Of the $3.1 million,$3 million went toward paying for (sildenafil) Viagra, according to the report prepared by the Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General.

The congressional ban went into effect in 2007.

"... Part D should not have covered these drugs," concluded the report.

So, the top 1% pay 37 times their fair share

The top 5% pay 12 times their fair share

If only Darrell Issa and James Inhofe could spend as much energy and enthusiasm on moving forward on addressing climate change as they spend on Benghazi then we've might be close to passing a Climate Change Bill . Alas, we're the only developed Western power that has not done so.

One of the easiest ways to reduce damage to the ozone layer-would be to reduce one of the easiest things to reach it first. Hydrocarbons.

Maybe SOME should curb flying around the world so frequently, practically pouring hydrocarbons into the stratosphere.

And open the windows (in cars as well)and turn off a/c's when not really necessary.

Amazing how no FACTS like that are ever mentioned though.

What is the rationale for free birth control and zero reimbursement for erectile dysfunction, other than gender bias?

Both allow the person to have sexual intercourse.
