And this is from the clueless twit that falsely claimed that healthcare navigators would have access to Social Security numbers, health records and bank information. Once more, they don't. The only information anyone gives is;
1. The number of people in the family that need coverage.
2. Income information on everyone in the family.
3. Other sources of available coverage, such as through employment.
So, there is no verification or validation of the information provided to receive taxpayer subsidies....

There are several paths House Republicans could take between now and midnight: The easiest way forward, of course, would be to simply pass a “clean” bill. The vote would likely pass the House, but it would require help from House Democrats — something that would be unusual, because House Republican leaders rarely bring bills to the floor that don't have support from a majority within the GOP conference.

<quoted text>LOL! That's why you support the richest 2% who basically got that way from not pulling their weight and stealing from the rest of us.
The tax laws that penalize the top 2% are based on income and not wealth and hit at those who have worked hard to earn money on their own, mostly professional people. The laws also penalize two-income families.

With all your bragging about your value to your company and all your raises and bonuses, surely you must be making $200K.

<quoted text>I don't see them bitching that it's discriminatory when they have to show a photo ID when applying at any apartment housing complex in America. ALL housing managers require that now, but apparently it's only unreasonable when it applies to the poor voting. Right, got it. I don't see a one time fee every 8 years for a photo I.D. or driver's license being a hardship for ANY poor American. Their phone and food is free, so wtf is so bad about proving they're legal to vote unless it's because they are up to something? IOWs, "Please turn a blind eye to my activities because I'm poor
I'm poor now and I have absolutely no problem with continuing to purchase an I.D. I don't find it insulting in the least.
It's funny how this was not a major issue until we had a president who managed to have so very many people vote multiple times for him. It's not a racial issue when a white guy gets illegal votes but when a black guy does all of a sudden his partners in crime claim discrimination when they get caught.
The race card makes cowards of civil people and they end up getting shafted for bending over to it.
Guess what, those apartment complexes were taking pictures for their own ID cards.

When Republicans include a plan to go door to door to make photo IDs for voting then I will have no complaint.

Dumbsass.,How did you people get this stupid?

Where are the stats showing all the Democrats voting twice for Obama?( Unless you count voting in 2008 & then 2012 voting twice).

Republicans have been push voter suppression long before Obama ran for President.

We started Military.com in 1999 to revolutionize the way the 30 million Americans with military affinity stay connected and informed. Today, we're the largest military and veteran membership organization — 10 million members strong.
Military.com 's free membership connects servicemembers, military families and veterans to all the benefits of service — government benefits, scholarships, discounts, lifelong friends, mentors, great stories of military life or missions, and much more.
We believe that the benefits earned in the service should be easier to access and written in plain English. We're passionate about helping members make the most of military experience throughout life.
Military.com 's members are sharing stories, insider tips, news from the front lines, and unique slices of military life including the tough stuff of war.
Military.com provides headline news and technology updates since our community answers the call and makes news.

In 2004, Military.com joined forces with Monster Worldwide (NYSE: MWW) to accelerate our growth and change the playing field for career and educational opportunities for servicemembers, veterans and military spouses. Monster's vision is bringing people together to advance their lives, which is a great fit with Military.com 's "members first" ethos and goal of connecting the military community to all the benefits of service.

Government Shutdown Looms, As Senate Democrats Hold Fast In Standoff With House

Democrats were perplexed by the House's insistence on pushing its riders, since Democrats have already agreed to the GOP's spending levels in the short-term bill.

"It's the numbers they want," said Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.). "We are taking their numbers. We're not happy about that. We're willing to compromise and take their numbers for the six-week period -- we want it clean."

What makes you believe that Iran does not already have nuclear weapons?
Doesn't matter. If he is willing to allow inspectors, we owe it to ourselves and the world to give him the benefit of the doubt. We shouldn't forget that the Shah of Iran was a staunch ally of the United States. It CAN happen again. Look what happened when Gorbachev came to power.

We certainly should not put our trust in Israeli intelligence. They have their own agenda and it is not necessarily consistent with the aims of the rest of the world. If you hear or read the words, "intelligence sources", chances are it's a reference to the Mossad spy agency.

According to an article published by the Center for Research on Globalization, the "Israeli government has the largest stockpile of chemical and other WMD in the entire Middle East...and (according to the Red Cross) they have used those weapons on indigenous Palestinian inhabitants.."

Obviously, Israel represents an important tool which we use in gathering intelligence but we should not allow ourselves to believe that Israel doesn't play us for the fool. We must do everything in our power to negotiate for peace...not war.
