If you look at those who do not currently have a photo ID, a good proportion are poor. The poor is disproportionately Black (Democratic voters).
Republican leaders n PA admitted that the voter ID law favors Republicans.
The law may apply to all but t really only affects those without photo ID.
Oh no! You really didn't just say that? "The law may apply to all but it really only affects those without photo ID". hahahahaha!!! Man, I would be pissed if I thought my party thought I was to stupid to get an photo ID if I wanted to vote. Well, wait a minute. They are to stupid to get a photo ID if they want to vote. Never mind.

The debt-ceiling vote, of course, is not about future spending decisions. It is about whether to cover expenditures the Congress has already authorized. There is no sane reason for subjecting this to a repeated vote. And there is no precedent for serious threats not to honor federal debt -- as opposed to symbolic anti-Administration protest votes, which both parties have cast over the years. Nor for demanding the reversal of major legislation as a condition for routine government operations.

In case the point is not clear yet: there is no post-Civil War precedent for what the House GOP is doing now. It is radical, and dangerous for the economy and our process of government, and its departure from past political disagreements can't be buffed away or ignored.

"There's nothing to negotiate with. He shouldn't delay the health care bill. It's the law and we're opening the enrollment on October 1. We're ready," Clinton said on This Week. They're in better shape now than the country was to implement President Bush's drug program, which everybody's forgotten. Go back and look at the polls, even more unpopular than health care reform is now."

"So I think that's a non-starter," Clinton said.

SAWYER:

A couple of other questions about the agenda now. You have said next year that you would repeal the healthcare vote. That's still your mission?

BOEHNER:

Well, I think the election changes that. It's pretty clear that the president was reelected, Obamacare is the law of the land.

Hours before the government is scheduled to run out of money and shut down, a poll released Monday morning found that more Americans will blame congressional Republicans than President Barack Obama for such a scenario.

According to the latest CNN/ORC International poll, a plurality of 46 percent said they would blame Republicans on Capitol Hill for a government shutdown while 36 percent said they would hold Obama responsible. Thirteen percent said they would blame both sides.

As some Republicans in Congress have pushed hard to defund the Affordable Care Act, the risk of a government shutdown has risen sharply. House Republicans passed a spending measure on Sunday that delays the health care law for one year.

A CNN/ORC poll released earlier this month also found that congressional Republicans would bear more of the fallout from a government shutdown than Obama.

more reality that will garner no reply. has even one republican addressed the fact that most Americans will blame them for the shutdown? oh wait, i'm wrong, someone has....

Employers are now distributing information about Obamacare and the "exhanges".

The document states employer converage is considered "affordable" if the cost of "single" coverage is not more than 9.5% of annual household income.

What a frikkin joke!

Obamacare is a joke!

I checked the calculation for a young adult making 40K per year and Obama/Democrats expect them to pay one quarter of their net income and be forced onto Obamacare.

This is a colossal joke!!!!!

Now Obama wants to shut down the government over a brief delay of one part of a very unpopular law.
And yet the candidate who promised to repeal this "very unpopular" law was defeated and the one who actually enacted it won. Go figure! Also Republicans who were opposed to the ACA lost seats in both houses of congress.

Congress makes law, not Obama, you dumbass. Republicans should "waste their time crafting legislation" because that's what we pay them to do, not pout about laws that already exist.
And, it was the conservative Heritage Foundation that created Obamacare, he listened to them.
You have really been duped by your wealthy handlers.

Sure stupid, that's why we've had the first communication between the presidents of these two countries since 1979 and we have the best chance of resolving this issue that there's been in years.
Your implacable hatred of President Obama makes you completely unable to give him any credit for anything. Hatred makes people stupid Carol and you're a prime example of that.
You can make all of the hate filled and demeaning comments you want about the President Carol but the fact remains that he's the president and you're an ignorant nobody.

The Disarray, Dysfunction, and Legislative Blundering of the Congressional GOP

To state the obvious, Republicans are facing a collective action problem. Successive rounds of budget brinkmanship are redounding to the benefit of a small number of Republican lawmakers, who are building their profile and fundraising on the strength of their theatrics. At the same time, successive rounds of budget brinkmanship risk undermining the political prospects of Republican candidates in competitive districts, and they might undermine the GOP brand more broadly.

More proof that we're closer to reaching that society shown in the movie, Idiocracy. The low informed voting public is tipping towards more takers than givers.

The candidate who promised to repeal the next huge government boondoggle also predicted that Russia would do exactly what it just did to "The One."
