Cost of Iraq war: 4-6 trillion dollars. http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2013-03-28...
The cost per family of 4 -$48,000.00 -$72,000.
The difference between that & the ACA is the Iraq war was never funded.
Obamacare is funded so it costs that family of 4 likely nothing.
The Internal Revenue Service said Monday that Lois G. Lerner, the woman at the center of the tea party targeting scandal, has resigned from the agency — though because of privacy rules it could say nothing more.
Ms. Lerner, who had been on paid administrative leave, was the director of the division that reviewed the applications for tax-exempt status from political groups over the past few years and that, according to an internal audit, gave extra scrutiny to tea party and other conservative groups.

She remains subject to congressional investigation.
Her actions put her at the center of the controversy, and several congressional committees had been looking into her behavior and into emails that seemed to suggest she was looking for reasons to deny political groups approval for tax-exempt status.
Last week, acting IRS Commissioner Daniel Werfel said he had asked both a review board and the agency’s inspector general to look at the emails.
Republicans said Ms. Lerner’s resignation, while a first step, isn’t the end of the scandal.
“Just because Lois Lerner is retiring from the IRS does not mean the investigation is over. Far from it,” said Sen. Orrin G. Hatch of Utah, the ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee.“In fact, there are many serious, unanswered questions that must be addressed so we can get to the truth.”
Ms. Lerner had previously refused to testify to Congress, citing her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. But when she appeared before Congress she also delivered a brief statement claiming innocence, which some members of the House oversight committee said means she waived her right to silence.
She remains subject to being called back to testify before the committee.

*NOW let's go after Dick Durbin. He is the one that used Lois Lerner in his Illinois campaign.

So, you are saying that illegals who pay income taxes should not receive the same tax breaks as other taxpayers? Typical Reslug.
the key word here is "illegals". No one should be rewarded for breaking the law.

Several unions have joined in opposition to a California bill that would stop hunters from using lead bullets, and have asked Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown not to sign the legislation.

The Democratic-led Legislature passed the bill earlier this month, based in part on studies that appear to show animals ingest lead fragments found in the soil and the dead prey they eat, which can contaminate the human food supply.

Critics say the studies have not made that clear link between the bullets and the food, and that retooling guns and switching to bullets made of copper or other metals will be an expensive job-killer for firearms and ammunition makers.

The group Californians for Conservation has released a list of nine union leaders and labor groups that think the measure is a bad idea, according to The Los Angeles Times.

Among them are the International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers District Lodge 190 and the Contra Costa Central Labor Council.

"Approximately 65% of all union households participate in hunting, fishing, or outdoor activities," said Mark Gagliardi, an official with the Office and Professional Employees International Union Local 277 in Fort Worth, Texas, according to The Times.

Whether Brown will sign the bill remains unclear. If he does not act before Oct. 13, the bill becomes law without his signature.

Evan Westrup, a spokesman for the governor, last week said:“The Governor has not yet taken a stance on this bill.”

The purpose of business is profit, and when the government provides cover for cutting of medical benefits, the benefits will be cut.

By the way, a "few more pennies per share" in earnings are critical to stock prices.

CHICAGO - The IRS scandal may have its roots in Illinois politics. Specifically, the 1996 U.S. Senate race between Democrat Congressman Dick Durbin and conservative Republican State Rep. Al Salvi.

More than a decade before his 2010 letter to IRS officials urging the agency to target conservative organizations, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin's political career crossed paths with Ms. Lerner when she was head of the Enforcement Division of the Federal Election Commission (FEC), and directly involved in the 1996 Illinois U.S. Senate race.

Ted Cruz Leaves Senate GOP With No Easy Way Out
Ted Cruz's plan doesn't make much sense on its face. He says he wants to filibuster the House-passed government spending bill that defunds Obamacare. Why would he want to block a bill that accomplishes his dream?
The apparent contradiction underlines the politically difficult position that Cruz has put his caucus in. How do you explain to your constituents that you voted to block a bill that would have defunded the health care law that they so deeply revile? Explaining the arcane rules of the Senate isn't the easiest political message, though Cruz has earned the backing of big conservative groups to fortify his position.
But the fact that he's in this position at all probably isn't a good sign. "Rule No. 1 in communications is if you are explaining, you are losing," a senior Senate GOP aide told TPM.

So the video did produce rioting in many Mid Eastern cities. So what is it about Benghazi that would make rioting there not possible.

The Cruz Way: How to Lose Friends and Alienate People

It’s useful to remember that Cruz won the primary last year not because of any substantive policy disagreement or even because of his superior qualifications, but because he pledged that he would be uncooperative, combative, and generally obnoxious once in office. He has delivered on that promise, but I wonder if that is the kind of representation that most Texans or conservatives genuinely want. Cruz has excelled at rubbing people the wrong way, but this has extended not only to the people that he thinks he’s supposed to irritate (i.e., party leaders, Democrats, journalists, etc.) but to other conservatives and would-be allies in Congress. On foreign policy, he has achieved the rare feat of being identified as both hawk and “isolationist” while making himself unattractive to both. He’s quickly becoming the kind of politician that many people on the right don’t want to have on their side: loud, abrasive, and ineffective.
