"The Smash Potatoes Regulation. The U.S. Department of Agriculture proposed stricter nutrition standards that would prohibit school lunch ladies from serving more than one cup per week of potatoes per student. Instead, schools would be required to provide more dark green, orange, and dry bean varieties (think kale) in order to foster vegetable diversity. The cafeteria mandate will affect more than 98,000 elementary and secondary schools at a cost exceeding $3.4 billion in the next four years."

Leading US banks have warned that they could start charging companies and consumers for deposits if the US Federal Reserve cuts the interest it pays on bank reserves.

Depositors already have to cope with near-zero interest rates, but paying just to leave money in the bank would be highly unusual and unwelcome for companies and households.

The warning by bank executives highlights the dangers of one strategy the Fed could use to offset an eventual “tapering” of the $85bn a month in asset purchases that have fuelled global financial markets for the last year.

Minutes of the Fed’s October meeting published last week showed it was heading towards a taper in the coming months – perhaps as soon as December – but wants to find a different way to add stimulus at the same time.“Most” officials thought a cut in the interest on bank reserves was an option worth considering.

Executives at two of the top five US banks said a cut in the 0.25 per cent rate of interest on the $2.4tn in reserves they hold at the Fed would lead them to pass on the cost to depositors.

Top Democrats, Republicans blast Obama's nuclear deal with Iran
Top lawmakers on both side of the aisle on Sunday voiced skepticism about the newly struck agreement with Iran, and vowed to keep up the pressure with sanctions.
Senior members in both chambers said that, at first glance, Iran got the better end of the deal with western powers, China and Russia – effectively exchanging looser sanctions for very little progress in impeding Tehran’s nuclear capabilities.
Some powerful lawmakers have said they’re willing to seek new sanctions now, but delay their implementation until after the six months covered by the current deal. But others weren’t even willing to go that far.
Sen. Chuck Schumer (N.Y.), the No. 3 Democrat in the chamber, called the deal disproportionately good for Iran, and that it was only strong sanctions that gave the United States and its allies any leverage over Tehran."

Yeah, yeah, yeah; they all have an opinion and want to get on the Sunday shows; easy to talk when you're not in it.
Progress has been made.
You republicans always want perpetual fighting and wars.
Thankfully people with superior intelligence will prevail.

Progressives fail to monitor the border...
but do monitor how much water your shower head uses!!!!!!!!!

'Showerheads.
The maximum water use allowed for any showerheads
manufactured after January 1, 1994, shall be 2.5 gallons per minute (9.5 liters per minute) when measured at a flowing pressure of 80 pounds per
square inch gage (552 kilopascals). Any such showerhead shall also meet the requirements of ASME/ANSI Standard A112.18.1M–1996, 7.4.4(a)'

"There isn't a deadline for Medicaid expansion: States can accept the additional funding at any time. The 100 percent federal funding for it, however, only lasts through 2016. After that it starts slowly phasing down the match until 2020 (and for all subsequent years), when it will pay 90 percent of the costs of covering these individuals.
Because the money can be accepted at any time, those governors who refused it for this year will likely be facing increased political pressure in the next few years, both as they see how it works in neighboring states, and as local hospitals and providers continue to be unnecessarily strained in providing care to low-income people."

How many Presidents fathers were alcoholics? The President wasn't responsible for his parents decisions. He's a perfect example of a person who probably had all odds against him; and look what happened? He overcame them and became the President of the United States.
He exemplifies the American dream that anything is possible.

So, continue on with your petty insults; who cares. He still got elected twice.
