Dan Rather's Outrageous Liberal Bias

Dan Rather replaced Walter Cronkite as anchor of the then-top rated CBS Evening News on March 9, 1981. Since then, his on-air liberal bias has become the stuff of legend.

Bush paid the Taliban $43 million to eradicate the poppy fields! Look up how much heroin production as increased since then! This was corporate sponsorship of the Taliban and the drug trade.
Drugs and arms makes the world go around. I know Oxycontin is an across the board drug. Why is it that Perdu Pharma makes billions from this legal drug dealing and the poor slob on the street goes to prison for selling this legal drug? You have to be a damn fool if you think that anyone, any government, has any urge to stop the flow of drugs. The local politicians make more and more new laws to arrest and incarcerate Americans for taking and selling prescription drugs; who are they punishing? The addicts. Heroin use is increasing because of these laws. 8 people a day die in Florida alone because of Oxycontin.
without drug addicts like your daughter and her community college friends, there would be no market for illegal drugs...

A Very Expensive Tea Party
Unwittingly and perhaps inadvertently, the Tea Party is helping to fulfill the prophecies of my Peterson Institute colleague Arvind Subramanian, who has long predicted that the renminbi will eclipse the dollar – and that China is likely to surpass the United States, in terms of economic weight and political clout. Speeding up such a transition will directly increase the interest cost of the national debt and exactly run counter to what Tea Party representatives claim they want to do. The change would make the longer-run public finances of the United States worse, not better.

Blah, blah, blah, blah; "Hot Air" rumors like 93 million Americans MAY find that their job-provided coverage will go the way of the individual plans in 2015 are UNFOUNDED and irresponsible.

Text of H.R. 3590

SEC. 1251. PRESERVATION OF RIGHT TO MAINTAIN EXISTING COVERAGE.
(a) No Changes to Existing Coverage-

(1) IN GENERAL- Nothing in this Act (or an amendment made by this Act) shall be construed to require that an individual terminate coverage under a group health plan or health insurance coverage in which such individual was enrolled on the date of enactment of this Act.

(2) CONTINUATION OF COVERAGE- With respect to a group health plan or health insurance coverage in which an individual was enrolled on the date of enactment of this Act, this subtitle and subtitle A (and the amendments made by such subtitles) shall not apply to such plan or coverage, regardless of whether the individual renews such coverage after such date of enactment.

(b) Allowance for Family Members To Join Current Coverage- With respect to a group health plan or health insurance coverage in which an individual was enrolled on the date of enactment of this Act and which is renewed after such date, family members of such individual shall be permitted to enroll in such plan or coverage if such enrollment is permitted under the terms of the plan in effect as of such date of enactment.

(c) Allowance for New Employees To Join Current Plan- A group health plan that provides coverage on the date of enactment of this Act may provide for the enrolling of new employees (and their families) in such plan, and this subtitle and subtitle A (and the amendments made by such subtitles) shall not apply with respect to such plan and such new employees (and their families).

(d) Effect on Collective Bargaining Agreements- In the case of health insurance coverage maintained pursuant to one or more collective bargaining agreements between employee representatives and one or more employers that was ratified before the date of enactment of this Act, the provisions of this subtitle and subtitle A (and the amendments made by such subtitles) shall not apply until the date on which the last of the collective bargaining agreements relating to the coverage terminates. Any coverage amendment made pursuant to a collective bargaining agreement relating to the coverage which amends the coverage solely to conform to any requirement added by this subtitle or subtitle A (or amendments) shall not be treated as a termination of such collective bargaining agreement.

Kentucky has been cited by numerous sources -- the Wall Street Journal, NPR, the Advisory Board Company -- as among the best of the best marketplaces since its launch. While the federal site has stumbled, Kentucky is being held up as evidence that the marketplace concept can work in practice.
The numbers back it up: more than 26,000 people have enrolled in coverage, more than 50,000 have started applications and more than 300,000 unique visitors have checked out what the marketplace has to offer. For a state with about 625,000 uninsured people, those are promising figures.

President Obama's approval ratings are at an all-time low
Posted: Oct 31, 2013 9:22 AM EDT

WASHINGTON (NBC).......[not FOX:)]
A brand new NBC-Wall Street Journal poll brings bad news for President Obama.

His job approval is on a massive slide, and now his personal likability is taking a hit, too.

President Obama's approval rating was near an all-time high in January.

Since Barack Obama became president, the extremists who have taken over the Republican Party have escalated their demands every time he’s caved, using the entire government of the United States as their bargaining chit.

In 2010 he agreed to extend all of the Bush tax cuts through the end of 2012. Were they satisfied? Of course not.

In the summer of 2011, goaded by an influx of Tea Partiers, they demanded huge spending cuts in return for raising the debt ceiling. In response, the President offered an overly-generous $4 trillion “Grand Bargain,” including cuts in Social Security and Medicare and whopping cuts in domestic spending (bringing it to its lowest level as a share of gross domestic product in over half a century).

Were Republicans content? No. When they demanded more, Obama agreed to a Super Committee to find bigger cuts, and if the Super Committee failed, a “sequester” that would automatically and indiscriminately slice everything in the federal budget except Social Security and Medicare.

Not even Obama’s re-election put a damper on their increasing demands. By the end of 2012, they insisted that the Bush tax cuts be permanently extended or the nation would go over the “fiscal cliff.” Once again, Obama caved, agreeing to permanently extend the Bush tax cuts for incomes up to $400,000.

Early this year, after the sequester went into effect, Republicans demanded even bigger spending cuts. Obama offered more cuts in Medicare and a “chained CPI” to reduce Social Security payments, in exchange for Republican concessions on taxes.

Refusing the offer, and seemingly delirious with their power to hold the nation hostage, they demanded that the Affordable Care Act be repealed as a condition for funding the government and again raising the debt ceiling.

This time, though, Obama didn’t cave — at least, not yet.
