Hmmmm. The city of Las Vegas has received $5.2 million in federal grant money since 2004 to build the Neon Boneyard Park and Museum... only $1.8 million of that was under the Obama administration.

Well, first of all, regardless that I do have very strong opinions about abortion and sucking babies out of women's wombs in a vacuum is amoral and barbaric and that it will come back to haunt us if it hasn't already....my focus right now is watching the show unfold on the Democratic stage and hoping beyond hope it's the silver lining we were both hoping for in 2012.
Can't you see that we both win if that proves to be the case? No matter where we stand on the issue of abortion?
impossible to win if saddled with the abortion issue...

The real cost to the federal deficit will be the huge increase in the number of people on Medicaid. ObamaKKKare has no funding whatsoever for that.

I was going to use the blind squirrel analogy__but decided not to this time. Because

You really are correct about the damage that the religious right has heaped on the GOP since GHWB invited that scummy little fk Ralph Reed to join he and Barbara on the stage. Twas a sad moment in American politics.

And if the TeaParty wing of the GOP continues to allow slugs like Amy Kremer, Jenny Beth Martin and L Brent Bozell III to control the GOP message__well__they may as well dig up David Duke.

No I'm quite sure you're wrong. He has a intense interest in photography and was able to publish his ability to get it up.

No it's not. Tolerance is simple. Either you are willing to tolerate differences in religious beliefs or you are not. There is no gray area.

That means we're both in the 92%.

So do the extremists on your side represent your personal beliefs on every issue anymore than the extremists do on mine?

Well, now you know how it feels.
I don't know of one conservative who is trying to change the law to make abortion on demand legal in all phases of pregnancy including born alive babies. There are quite a few on your side.
That doesn't mean all liberals think alike on this issue.
Lumping people together who happen to share the same same political ideology but don't always share the same beliefs on social issues is not fair or necessary. Right?
I don't know of one single liberal is trying to change the law. Period.

The premise of ObamaKKKare was that taxes on the rich would pay for care for the poor. The reality is that higher premiums on the middle class will pay for care for the poor. Just as planned.
The idea that ObamaKKKare would lower costs has already been proven idiotic.

The estimates on the ACA website are very misleading. Enrollees of ObamaCare are stunned when they find out the real cost. Apparently the website lumps wildly ranging age groups to make it appear more affordable to the public.

Another fraud?

If only liberals didn't invent invisible wars on women and everyone else come election time...

But I can actually go along with your suggested response by conservatives candidates who are against abortion when asked direct questions by the liberal moderators in the next debates.

Defeating the liberal ideology and all that it entails is the #1 priority at this point. And abortion will not be overturned with one election cycle.

So, yes, we agree.

Again, the exchanges are not for everyone. If someone doesn't qualify for a subsidy they will, more than likely, do better in the private market. That is a Fact. I'm sure even you can still find a shoddy plan for about $50.00 a month.
