A Very Expensive Tea Party
The recent government shutdown and confrontation over the federal debt ceiling gained the Republicans nothing, at best – and may have cost them politically as a party. But it slowed the economy and undermined confidence in public finances in a way that will have a significant negative impact on future budgets of the United States. None of this should make for an appealing strategy, but Tea Party Republicans are giving every indication that they want to do the same thing again early next year. Their more moderate colleagues need to take a firmer hand.
On the political gains from recent tactics, it is hard to find any good news for the Republican side as a whole. Representative Thomas H. Massie, Republican of Kentucky, got it right when he said,“Goose egg, nothing, we got nothing,” in terms of policy changes. And opinion polls moved more sharply against Republicans than some had expected. Prominent Republicans including Senators John McCain of Arizona and the minority leader, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, have now come out strongly against further shutdowns.
Unfortunately, they do not control Republicans in the House of Representatives.

Another example of how f*cking dumb you are.
People that don't work & have little or no income can get coverage through medicaid.
Those that work & do not get health insurance benefits are the ones that the ACA would help buy insurance through subsidies.
These are working people contributing to society.
You right whiners want it both ways, you b*tch about raising the minimum wage because you tell us businesses must pay less & less to survive and then call those working at these low wages worthless.
SOME ONE HAS THE MEAN FACE ON they need a time out go in the corner DAVEY BOY mind your manners to your elders. The GOVERNOR GENERAL OBAM<A MAKES FOOLS OF THEM AND THEY GET UPSET WITH OTHERS

Poll: Medicaid Expansion About The Only Thing Pa. Voters Like About Corbett
It appears that the Affordable Care Act may have handed Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett (R) the rare opportunity to please his constituents.
A poll released Thursday by Franklin & Marshall College showed Corbett continuing to nurse anemic individual numbers. Only 19 percent of Pennsylvania voters said he is doing a "good" or "excellent" job. Thirty-nine percent said he is doing only a "fair" job, while 37 percent said he's doing a "poor" job.
Only 20 percent said he deserves re-election next year compared with 67 percent who said it's time for a change. Forty-four percent said he should step aside, slightly more than the 42 percent who said he should seek another term in 2014. And a slight majority, 52 percent, said they have an unfavorable opinion of the Republican.
It's the latest in what's been an ongoing trend of terrible poll numbers for Corbett.
But those same voters overwhelmingly support his plan to expand Medicaid under Obamacare. After having the expansion described to them, 36 percent said they "strongly favor" the proposal while 28 percent said they "somewhat favor" the idea. A quarter of Pennsylvania voters said they are opposed to the expansion.

Well, it was the fathers property. I don't know what the fathers rap sheet is, but it's not relevant. Zimmerman is going to be watched all his life and every time he sees a black person; he's going to shyt his pants. Good. One day he'll get it by someone who has nothing to lose.
