Against Despair

The bad ideas behind the shutdown.

....Effective political movements create the conditions for their own success. Conservatism has not done enough of that, but when it has prospered it has never been moved by despair. The apocalyptic style of politics holds that the future of the country is at stake. That is true, which is why conservatives need to get to the work of persuading and electioneering — and drop the fantasy of a shortcut.

You, too, moron.
The emergency room is the most sensible health care option for people who won't work for a living, moron.
If you want health care, all you had to do was join the economy... that is, before you Democrats ruined it with your Marxist agenda.
Want health care? Do this:
1) Don't drop out of school.
2) Study while you're in school.
3) Don't have children before you're married.
4) Get a job and show up for work on time every day.
5) Do what you're paid to do when you're at work.
Anyone who does the above will never be "poor" and will be able to afford what health care used to cost before the Democrats pushed thier Marxist agenda onto it.
Nice job, morons. You destroyed the finest education system in the world, then you destroyed the finest health care system in the world.
What's next? Oh, yeah. You are trying to destroy the best governmental system in the history of civilization.
Everything you clowns touch turns into a disaster. Why does anyone think that same thing won't happen to health care?
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.

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.

Anywhere else in Florida; if someone hits an elderly person; he is arrested. Period. Whether or not the victim presses charges. And it doesn't necessarily have to be an old person; but it's more likely with an old person. He has received favoritism.
Her father is not elderly__nor is he a wimp. He's got an interesting rap sheet.

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.
