It's not about the tea party or republicans you sanctimonious socialist hiding behind the liberal label!
It's about an incompetent president who punishes veterans and sick children instead of negotiating and talking with the other party to stop this nonsense because he is obsessed with his precious law which is already a proven disaster before it has even kicked in.

Waxman. Your comments are truly brilliant. Your mastery of the English language is truly astounding. Are you a college professor or just an incredibly smart human being?

Who on Capital Hill is finally going to suggest starting impeachment proceedings? He has failed to uphold his oath to defend and protect the Constitution more times than I can count.
He makes Nixon look like Eisenhower. He makes Clinton look like a saint.
He has got to go. He is not the Dictator of the United States. He does not own Obamacare to the exclusion of all else, especially in light of its unintended consequences.
We have a two party system and negotiating comes with the territory. His refusal to do so is enough grounds for impeachment and if it isn't, it should be.
We need a rally of protest to beat all rallies of protest equivalent to every single tea party rally in one place on Capital Hill right in front of the White House lawn.
We have a petulant child pretending he's the teacher and disrupting the classroom and he has to be expelled. Permanently.
Its a nice thought,but,it'll never happen.
You need a two thirds vote in the Senate and 53% are Democrats who wouldn't break party lines if Oblamer burned the Constitution on national TV.

Carol , you seem to operating under the delusion that "charitable" giving goes primarily to the poor when in fact only a small percentage actually does. The largest segment of giving is to religious organizations or churches. Most of that money goes to cover operational costs. I just got out of a vestry meeting at our church where we had to vote on some needed structural repairs and decide where the money was coming from. Other forms of charitable giving includes education, the arts and even animal shelters. While some donations to food banks for instance help the poor the vast majority doesn't even reach them.
As for your assertion that government shouldn't be involved I refer you to James Madison, the Father of the Constitution in a veto message to Congress;
"The bill vests in the said incorporated church an authority to provide for the support of the poor and the education of poor children of the same, an authority which, being altogether superfluous if the provision is to be the result of pious charity, would be a precedent for giving to religious societies as such a legal agency in carrying into effect a public and civil duty."
Do you get that Carol? Taking care of the poor is a public and civic duty. It is a governmental role and your assertion that it's theft is just plain stupid.
If the wealthy and the corporations paid their taxes we wouldn't have a problem

The Obama administration lies systematically, Hersh claims, yet none of the leviathans of American media, the TV networks or big print titles, challenge him.

"It's pathetic, they are more than obsequious, they are afraid to pick on this guy [Obama]"

Hersh is adamant that Obama is worse than Bush.

"Do you think Obama's been judged by any rational standards? Has Guantanamo closed? Is a war over? Is anyone paying any attention to Iraq? Is he seriously talking about going into Syria? We are not doing so well in the 80 wars we are in right now, what the hell does he want to go into another one for. What's going on [with journalists]?" he asks.

Waxman,
Again, do you folks ever change the channel from Fox News, Limbaugh and Beck? Are you afraid that your brain is too small to listen to more than one side of a issue? Was it F. S. Fitztgerald that said the mark of a smart person is the ability to hold two opposing views in his mind at the same time?(I paraphrased in simple words that you could understand).

Yes, you folks know all the name calling used at recess in third grade. But why would you not want to advance your thinking beyond a third grade level?

Do you have any real points to make other than the name calling? Or is that where your intellect ends - at third grade recess?

So predictable. Someone with no common sense front & center lecturing others. Typical zero Democrat.

We have seen your type many time zero. You fool nobody but a fool such as yourself.

Later, boring zero Democrat. Go pray to your Obama, cult member.

Ray Donovan,
You have to admit that there are facts that are verifiable and there are innuendos and allegations. I would be glad to debate facts with you.

Shall we start with the condition of the country when Obama inherited the White House and the country from eight years of Republican rule?
