Why is the Government broke?

$156 Million in grants to these Liberal Groups

"For example, between 1990 and 1994, the Natural Resources Defense Council got $246,622; Defenders of Wildlife,$1,285,658; Environmental Defense Fund,$1,493,976; and the World Wildlife Fund,$26,584,335. All together, environmental lobbyists collected $156,644,352 during this period."

"Money that Schiavo's husband, Michael, received as part of a medical malpractice lawsuit in his wife's case in 1993 is almost gone, said Deborah Bushnell, one of Michael Schiavo's lawyers.
Of the $700,000 payment, only about $50,000 is left, Bushnell said. The rest went to pay for medical care for Schiavo, who has been in a persistent vegetative state for 15 years, and for legal fees in the battle over her fate, she said."
"Medicaid, the state and federal program that pays medical costs for the poor and indigent, has been picking up the tab for Schiavo's medications for two years, Bushnell said, while the hospice provides care for free." -apparently in just the last two years did the husband stop paying.
Taxpayers, hospice pay for Schiavo medical care

What is your point here?
Didn't this start with you claiming Galt was heartless or something for not thinking it was wise to pay for the high cost of ICU care for the terminally ill?
Then you end up agreeing with him.
You honestly think that $700,000 is enough to keep her alive for 15 years? What a dope.
The taxpayers paid for this hideous event.

She wasn't terminally ill; she was dead. Braindead, kinda like you.

Galt is against others paying to keep people alive or pay for their treatment. That is the essence of insurance; everyone puts into the pot, everyone is covered. What is so hard for you to understand?
"Whatever" claims that Terry Schiavos husband paid personally to keep her alive for 14 years! Did her parents pay with their own money to keep her alive and show her lolling her head around on tv for 14 years? I doubt it. She was dead, let her die with dignity instead of being made an example of religious zealotry.
You people are sick in the head.
Fund for Schiavo's medical care dwindles
By ANITA KUMAR and J. NEALY-BROWN
© St. Petersburg Times,
published June 3, 2001
Throughout the long, messy battle over whether Terri Schiavo should be kept alive, her husband and parents have accused each other of wanting to control her fate to get their hands on her hundreds of thousands of dollars.
But by the time the bitter feud finally ends, there might not be any left.
The $700,000 or so earmarked for Mrs. Schiavo's medical care for the rest of her life has dwindled to about $350,000, court records show. Most was spent in the past two years on the intense legal fight that made its way to the U.S. Supreme Court and is still not over.
The money, which came from a 1992 medical malpractice case, has been used for Mrs. Schiavo's medical bills; her husband's attorney, who is fighting to remove her feeding tube; and a bank that manages the money.
Records show that George Felos, Michael Schiavo's litigation attorney, has been paid more than $200,000 since 1997. Another Schiavo attorney, Deborah Bushnell, got $27,000. Schiavo himself was reimbursed almost $6,000 for legal costs.
Other expenses include private aides, security guards hired after the publicity led to a ruckus outside Mrs. Schiavo's nursing home and a lawyer appointed by a judge to represent Mrs. Schiavo in court.
"One of the problems when people fight is that the people who make out the best are the lawyers," Sarasota financial planner Margery Schiller said.
As his wife's legal guardian, Schiavo is entitled to use the money, but only if it is in her best interests. Schiavo says he is trying to do that by following her wishes not to be kept alive after lapsing into a persistent vegetative state 11 years ago.
"This suit was brought on her behalf to implement her wishes," Felos said.
Attorneys for Mrs. Schiavo's parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, say they are appalled that Michael Schiavo is able to spend her money to end her life.
"This is outrageous. It's offensive," said Pat Anderson, one of the couple's attorneys. "It's not being used for the purpose in which it was given."
Pam Campbell, another of the Schindlers' attorneys, cites an attorney general's opinion from 1996 stating that a guardian's attorney paid from an account such as Mrs. Schiavo's "owes a duty of care to (the incapacitated person) as well as the guardian."
Anderson, who said she is working for almost nothing, plans to ask a judge to stop allowing Schiavo to pay Felos with Mrs. Schiavo's money, or at least tell the Schindlers' attorneys when he does.
The Schindlers, who tried unsuccessfully to remove Schiavo as guardian, do not have access to the money and say they have been denied a fair opportunity to represent themselves because they cannot afford the experts and doctors Schiavo can.
Pinellas-Pasco Circuit Judge George Greer already must approve each expense paid from the account. The judge also agreed last year to seal the requests for payment from public view, at Felos' request. The approvals, however, are public record.
Last year, the clerk of court's office, which processes those requests, questioned whether Felos should receive money for speaking to the media for hours. The judge did not stop the payments to Felos, who receives $195 an hour and $225 an hour for appellate work.

TheRepublicans voted to fund government only if the ACA was defunded& delayed.
The Republicans ate saying this: "Either defund or delay the ACA or they will purposefully harm the country."
And, that's the problem. The American people don't want ObamaKare.

How about we fund the things we agree on first.

Or, not. It seems both sides have agreed on 87 percent of the government. 87 percent of the government is still running. Why would anyone want more government than that?

No repeal. Just defunding the biggest nonessential spending in the budget before it bankrupts the nation.
But now they just want fairness - that individuals get the same delay as corporations and Congress abide by the same rules as the rest of us.
But that would mean Obama and Reid would have to act like grownup leaders instead of petulant children.
(Reminds me of children with a new ball who won't let any of the other kids touch it.)
Democrats don't understand the concept of bankruptcy. They think there will be some country somewhere, or something, which money will magically appear from when they want, like when money magically appeared for GM and the unions.
To Democrats, money grows on trees. It falls like mana from heaven. It appears when it is wanted.

That's it. Prove again how clueless you are!!

What it was about was the rights of Mr. Schiavo, which the FL and then Federal Gov't, under Repugnants, tried to take away his rights vis a vis his own wife.

Aren't you the ones calling for smaller Gov't??

Of course you are. Yet your side let your emotions get the best of you and accused Mr.Schiavo of all sorts of bad behavior and tried to steal his rights as her husband.

But the Courts told Bush $ Company that they were wrong.

Ask Bill Frist. The stupidity of Repugnants cost him his political career. Damaged Bush, also.

And here we have you asshats accusing Obama of Gov't overreach!!

Funny, the Courts supported Obama in the ACA, yet you call him a Dictator!!

Proving again your emotional meltdowns.

WASHINGTON — As several thousand demonstrators rallied around them, eight members of the House of Representatives were arrested on Tuesday outside the Capitol in a protest to push Congress to pass broad immigration legislation that includes a path to citizenship for immigrants in the country illegally.

The protests came as most attention in Congress was focused on the standoff over the partial government shutdown and the partisan disputes over health care and fiscal policy, pushing immigration to the side.
The lawmakers, all Democrats, were detained by the Capitol Police after they stood silently in a line in the middle of a street that borders the Capitol lawn, blocking traffic. As the police handcuffed them behind their backs and led them away, a crowd pressed in, chanting,“Let them go!”
The representatives arrested were Joseph Crowley and Charles B. Rangel of New York, Keith Ellison of Minnesota, Al Green of Texas, Luis V. Gutierrez and Jan Schakowsky of Illinois, Raul M. Grijalva of Arizona and John Lewis of Georgia. More than 150 other protesters, many from labor unions and immigrant organizations, were also arrested after they sat down and linked arms in the same street.
The arrests came after a rally by thousands of supporters of an immigration overhaul held in the middle of the National Mall, with a stage and live music by the Tigres del Norte, a popular Mexican-American band.
In a storm of Twitter posts, conservatives questioned how the immigration groups could hold a demonstration on the Mall, which is a national park, when national parks and memorials are closed as a result of the government shutdown. House Republicans have tried to reopen parks and monuments while keeping most of the federal government closed.
Conservatives said the Obama administration was showing a double standard by allowing the rally a week after World War II veterans were blocked from entering their memorial on the Mall. The veterans went in despite barricades placed there. After that, the National Park Service said veterans would be allowed to enter the memorial during the shutdown.
In a statement, the Park Service said it had allowed the immigration rally as an expression of “First Amendment rights,” the same rationale it had provided for opening the war memorial.
“The Mall is supposed to be shut,” said Brad Botwin, the director of Help Save Maryland, an anti-illegal-immigrant group, who joined a handful of people at the Mall to protest the immigration demonstration.“Why is the Park Service helping illegal immigrant groups and desperate labor unions to have a rally today?”
From the stage, Representative Nancy Pelosi of California, the minority leader, thanked the White House for giving permission for the rally to proceed.
At any given time in history, Ellison, member of Mo Bro Hoodies would be detained in Gitmo. Jan Schakowsky is a known Communist and should be interrogated by John Burge--and Gutierrez is/was a member of FALN who murdered several people by way of bomb--they should be locked up for life.
