This is why today's Republicans can't admit the real reason why they oppose Obamacare: The middle-class tax breaks in Obamacare are paid for almost entirely by taxes on the richest 2 percent of Americans and corporations.
This is the big lie of ObamaKKKare.

The subsidies benefit only the poor and are paid for by higher taxes and higher insurance premiums paid by both the middle class and the wealthy.

The tyranny of local government is often more direct and personal, but federal tyranny is even more oppressive.
Galt finds it interesting that the same non-liberal leftwingers who scream about climate change try to block innovative solutions like ride-sharing because of ripoff cab driver union pressure.
Like the Detroit airport bus.
Non-liberal - and liberal - leftwingers like to complain about school vouchers and then blame the "white culture" for the high dropout rates and poverty in the inner cities too.

If republicans were the party obstructing school vouchers, then they'd have a reason to complain.

But that's not the case.

Meant to serve as a tool for presidents to eliminate "pork-barrel" spending in bills without having to veto the legislation entirely, presidents have been coveting line-item veto power since before the civil war: Everyone from Ulysses S. Grant

authority, but to date, Clinton is the only one to have that wish granted.

Let's take a look at your reference....

"Everyone from Ulysses S. Grant to Ronald Reagan entreated Congress to give them line-item veto authority...."

And you call that proof Ronald Reagan used the office of president to influence Congress to write a line item veto bill?

CBS News... hmmmmmmmm...... Doesn't CBS News have a history of lying to you about other-than-Democrat politicians, anyway?

Let's not forget, President LCN, that strict sanctions had already been placed on Iraq by the UN Security Counsel and President Clinton resulting in the deaths of thousands of Iraqi children.

So now pretend your the UN. Saddam has been evasive after 15 different resolutions to give him a chance to come clean and you have now threatened him with "serious consequences".

What would those "serious consequences" be?

Strict sanctions killing more Iraqi children?

It's not easy making the really tough decisions when you're not bloviating on a topix forum, is it?

Well, no.

The leftwingers who post here are not liberals, being opposed to individual rights in favor of government tyranny.

Now, President LCN, what would you have done? Even if you should have expected this kind of unexpected resistance?
You had two choices:
1. Tuck your tail between your legs and high-tail it out of there.
2. Stay and fight.
(Can't use the excuse "I wouldn't have been there in the first place" because, after 9/11, you would have believed - like Hillary Clinton - that Saddam would find a way to rebuild and use his chemical and biological weapons. So just assume you, the President, wouldn't want to take the risk of having millions of deaths on your hands somewhere down the road if Saddam were allowed to keep thumbing up his nose at you and the rest of the world.)
Now, what would President LCN do?
Another comment....

The President of the United States ordered the Armed Forces of the United States to undertake a mission to remove Saddam Hussein from power.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

So-called "liberals" will say and do anything to insult and slander the Armed Forces of the United States.

"After the Mission Accomplished speech, the attacks by insurgents began."

Since friends and family were in the Green Zone watching the total screwup brought on by the Bush disaster. No preparation for the occupation.

Saddam was Iran's major enemy, removed with 4000 dead and treasure wasted. Iran now has great influence in Iraq thanks to President Bush's screw up.:-)

<quoted text> you don't have to go that far, we have that problem here in the major cities.


Well, let's see. First, there was 9/11. Then there was the UN who considered Saddam a threat. Then there were the Democrats who considered Saddam a threat as far back as the Clinton administration. Of course, 111 Democrats gave Bush permission to use military force to take Saddam down and unanimously gave Bush permission to attack Afghanistan. And most Democrats supported the funding of the wars they agreed were worth fighting.

Did I leave anything out?

What's funny in a tragic sort of way is the FBI already identified five suspects since last May who were involved in the attack but no arrests have been made...but yet Libyan authorities arrested 50 people in connection with the attack within a week of the attack...and Turkey arrested two men suspected of involvement in the attack three weeks later...and Egypt arrested a terror suspect linked to the Consulate attack three months later.

It was Americans who were killed and our own FBI hasn't made one arrest 10 months later.
I'm just sayin'...somethin' stinks.
Americans killed on foreign soil does not give the FBI authority to arrest the perpetrators. I'm sure if these suspects were on our soil they would be arrested but they aren't....use common sense for a change.
