Congress scores a new exemption from the healthcare law. And guess who's paying for their Cadillac health care while we have to drive the lemon?
As Steve Forbes said, "If the cookie tastes so great, why don't they eat it?"
PDupont, LCN, sonic...that's an excellent question for each of you to answer.
There is no bill in Congress calling for an exemption from the health care law liar. In fact, members of Congress and their staffs face additional requirements that most Americans donít have to meet.
Under the health care law, their insurance coverage will have to switch from the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, the group of private insurance plans that cover 8 million federal employees and retirees, to the exchanges created by the law. Those exchanges are meant for those who buy coverage on their own, the currently uninsured and small businesses. Members of Congress and their staffs would be the only employees of a large employer in the exchanges, which are set to begin offering insurance in January.
How's the weather in your alternate universe?

"states rights"
It was bitter symbolism for black Americans (though surely not just for black Americans). Countless observers have noted that Reagan took the Republican Party from virtual irrelevance to the ascendancy it now enjoys. The essence of that transformation, we shouldn't forget, is the party's successful wooing of the race-exploiting Southern Democrats formerly known as Dixiecrats. And Reagan's Philadelphia appearance was an important bouquet in that courtship

Whatthefuck does the bullshit you posted have to do with the 10th Amendment?

And, Reagan became president because we became the laughing stock of the world under Carter and were on the verge of losing the Cold War. Losing the Cold War would have meant the same thing that happened to the Soviet Union after they lost the Cold War would have happened to us if Reagan had not won the Cold War.

P.S. NO ONE wanted Hillary or her not about health, not about care either. Stinking loser democrats trying to control Americans one pill at a time. They did succeed in getting people sick when Clinton unleashed Pharma on everyone.
So you agree with me. The Republicans did NOTHING.

Republicans gave the drug company billions when they expanded Medicare with the drug benefit.

How has Obamacare negatively affected you? Nowhere.

You are just another uninformed right whiner who has no clue what the ACA does.

Yep Harvard Law always admits dropouts without undergraduate degrees.
Columbia always lists people as graduates who never attended.
Where did you vacation, Dumbass, TX?
It would be the person who entered the United States as Barry Soetoro; dropped out of college after being a poor student at Occidental to follow his boyfriend to New York where his boyfriend actually did transfer from Occidental to Columbia and actually attended classes there and his classmates actually met him; used multiple Social Security numbers, none of which pass e-Verify; moved to Chicago and met Vernon Jarrett and William Ayers, after which he was admitted to Harvard after being a college dropout at Occidental and was never admitted to and never attended any classes at Columbia; ... and is the pathological liar we observe today mooching a life in the White House.
By the way, what's the president's name? How do you know this?

Let's take a look at Barry's application for admission to Columbia.

Who does Columbia list as a graduate? Barack Obama? The name he was registered at Occidental where he supposedly transferred from to Columbia coincidentally at the same time his boyfriend transferred was Barry Soetoro.
If Columbia has any name listed as a graduate from there, it would be the name he entered Columbia with, you fucking moron.

Obama never attended classes at Columbia. Nobody in his class every met him. I'm thinking he was never even admitted to Columbia.

Now, kindly explain to us how Barack Obama got a degree from Columbia when it was Barry Soetoro that was admitted. Let's take a look at the paperwork on how Columbia verified that this "Barack Obama" was the same person as this "Barry Soetoro" they supposedly admitted after being a poor student at Occidental.

Please identify the racial slur you reference:
"Lord Obama has his mutt AIRLIFTED BY MILITARY TRANSPORT to his vacation home in Mahthuhs Vineyud.
Cost: tens of thousands. To transport A DOG.
Come on, lefties. When is it going to stop? Your Boy Emperor jets off to Africa with the wife and kids, we get stuck for $60-$100 MILLION. A few years ago Moochelle throws a party in Spain for 60 or so of her closest friends. She pays for one first class ticket for herself and the kids, the rest is up to you-know-who. Yep, us suckers.
Lord Obama gives a boo-hoo speech about how the sequester is going to destroy life as we know it last spring. THE SAME DAY he jetted off to Florida on his personal 747 AND a decoy (security, you know). How much did that golf game with Tiger cost?
Tell us how he really cares deeply about the American taxpayer. The middle class. The disenfranchised.
You don't have a clue."
I understand that the language used is part of your everyday speech but calling a black man "boy" is a racial slur.

But hey, you keep defending those that post slurs, it's what you Tea Party people do best.

Reagan said in speech after speech his economic plan would improve the lives of African-Americans. In a February 1977 CPAC address, he said, "The time has come for Republicans to say to black voters:'We offer principles that black Americans can and do support. We believe in jobs, real jobs; we believe in education that is really education; we believe in treating all Americans as individuals and not as stereotypes or voting blocs.'"
Yes, Reagan was right. The time has come. But we have a president who doesn't care if blacks have real jobs or a real education or not and engages in creating division among the races.
Memory of Reagan is treasured by most Black voters, turn out for the republicans in 2012 was in Reagan's honor?

The president was so cut off from the counsel of black Americans that he sometimes did not even realize when he was offending them. One example occurred when Reagan sided with Bob Jones University in a lawsuit to obtain federal tax exemptions that had been denied by the IRS. The IRS denied tax exemptions to segregated private schools. Many of them were schools such as Bob Jones University, which enrolled a handful of minority students but prohibited interracial dating and marriage. It was the basis of this discrimination that the IRS denied the tax exemption.

Reagan would later say that the case had never been presented to him as a civil rights issue. More astonishingly, he did not even know that many Christian schools practiced segregation.

Donald Trump, Louie Gohmert Make Great Case For Why GOP Should Keep People Like Them Off TV

Here is a message to the Republican Party, from me: Guys, I don't know if you've noticed this, but you are getting rooked pretty badly by the Sunday shows. Did y'all wake up today thinking that the best thing for your message was to have it carried by guys like Trump and Gohmert and King? I am guessing that's not the case. But that's who got booked, because nothing is better for ratings than a bunch of hot messes on the teevee.

Trump happily obliged himself to the task of being a hot mess, though, continuing to offer up a steady stream of rhetorical skid-marks on the lunatic "Obama birth certificate" conspiracy theory as well: "Well, I donít know, was there a birth certificate? You tell me. You know some people say that was not his birth certificate. So maybe it was; maybe it wasnít.Ē

Additionally, Jonathan Karl asked Donald Trump the Important Questions, like, "Is Ted Cruz eligible to be president?" Karl knows that the answer to this question is "Yes." But Karl asked Trump because he knew it would be some Super Duper Silliness OMGZ!

ďIf he was born in Canada, perhaps not,Ē Trump said, adding,ďI donít know the circumstances. I heard somebody told me he was born in Canada. Thatís really his thing.Ē

And Trump's "thing" is horseshit like this, which everyone at ABC News knew to be the case the second they agreed to interview him. I promise you, no one at ABC News thought that their interview with Trump would be good for America. Interviewing Trump is the political media version of the group of people who positioned pig's blood above Carrie at the prom and then laughed in anticipation of the big joke they were about to pull, only in this case, "America" is Carrie. "HAR DE HAR, THERE'S GONNA BE PIG BLOOD EVERYWHERE!" is what the people at ABC News said when they hatched the idea of airing an interview with Donald Trump.
