Reid blocks Senate from improving tax-and-spend deal. Dems: illegals welfare over veteran benefits .
Reid filled up the amendment tree and refused to allow for restoring veteran benefits. Also allows a loop hole to allow illegals welfare.
The Dems cannot cut any Welfare program no matter how illegally the benefits are obtained.
The more people on welfare, the more votes. Reid's simple strategy. Nevermind who has to pay for it.

<quoted text> Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Was A Republican
During the civil rights era of the 1960's, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. fought to stop Democrats from denying civil rights to blacks. It should come as no surprise that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican as has been affirmed by his niece, Dr. Alveda C. King.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would not have joined the Democratic Party, the party of the Ku Klux Klan and segregation.
Dr. King fought against Democrat Public Safety Commissioner Eugene "Bull" Connor in Birmingham who let loose vicious dogs and turned skin-burning fire hoses on black civil rights demonstrators.
Democrat Georgia Governor Lester Maddox famously brandished ax handles to prevent blacks from patronizing his restaurant. Democrat Alabama Governor George Wallace blocked the entrance of two black students at the University of Alabama in 1963 and thundered, "Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever”. All of these racist Democrats remained Democrats until the day they died. In fact, racist Democrats declared that they would rather vote for a “yellow dog” than a Republican because the Republican Party was known as the party for blacks.
conservative democrats. you guys always leave out that part.

and let's blow up your fantasy.

Another indication that progress is being made was found in the recent presidential election in the United States. The American people revealed great maturity by overwhelmingly rejecting a presidential candidate who had become identified with extremism, racism, and retrogression. The voters of our nation rendered a telling blow to the radical right. They defeated those elements in our society which seek to pit white against Negro and lead the nation down a dangerous Fascist path.

Surprise!

Under ObamaCare, smoking, obesity and other health conditions sometimes penalized by wellness programs can force even those with employer-provided insurance to pay more, an officer of the National Union of Healthcare Workers said Tuesday.

Now we know why Pewlosi said we had to pass the bill before reading it! A ton of these people are Obama voters!

LOL!

"Part D is financed through general revenues (74%), beneficiary premiums (13%), and state payments for dual eligibles (13%). Similar to Part B, enrollees with higher incomes pay a larger share of the cost of Part D coverage."
So what new taxes were levied to go into the general fund to cover that 74%?

That is irrelevant you moron. Nobody was discussing the "title of the bill", but the subject matter of Ted Cruz's filibuster, which was unequivocally "ObamaCare/the UCA".
When caught being a moron, you always try and make the subject something it's not so you can proclaim yourself correct. Hence you pull the grease pole liberal routine.
Look idiot! Everyone here knows you made a fool out of yourself!
Deal with it, moron!
The subject started when one of your buddies sad Cruz filibustered the ACA. He did not.

Now You, Whatever & No Surprise (as if you are all not the same person) are performing a circle jerk rather to admit the bill he filibustered was not the ACA.

Now none of you will say what bill he actually did filibuster because you three just can't admit you are wrong & I am right.

Hi there, duplicitous grease pole.

Why do you now use the word "taxes" instead of your usual "revenues" when you are arguing for taking money from people for Democrat programs?

This country is going to fall into mass chaos and the IRS will become a three-ring circus.

There's no way in hell the IRS will be able to monitor every single person's health care coverage, enforce the tax penalties and still oversee our taxes in this country.

And as far as our privacy and security goes, we can throw that out the window now.

HOPE AND CHANGE: OBAMA SMEARED BUSH FOR 10.6% BLACK UNEMPLOYMENT RATE; FIVE YEARS LATER IT’S 12.9%
Posted 10.22.13 by Greg Campbell, TPNN Political Analyst
Obama
At times, a leader’s ineptitude can best be revealed when he parades his failures as victories. While America still remains in the clutches of a dismal economy, the Obama Administration has become their own cheerleaders, announcing victory when there is no reason to celebrate.
President Obama and his cagey mouthpiece, Jay Carney, have become more and more committed to spinning every failure as victories with only minor hiccups. With the nation’s economy still in poor shape five years after he assumed office, with Obamacare making the Edsel look like a smashing success and with the country heading to yet another showdown as lawmakers continue to ignore the $17 trillion elephant in the room, the question remains:
At what point does this president stop trying to con us and admit that these obvious failures need addressing?
Today, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released their report that showed that black unemployment dropped this last month from 13% to 12.9%.
So… Break out the champagne, I guess….
The report indicates that 148,000 jobs were created in September, which dropped the official unemployment rate to 7.2%. Curiously enough, however, the labor-force participation rate fell to 35-year lows- a true testament to the creative accounting for which this administration is known. As more and more people are discounted from the figures for having been out of work for too long, the rate continues to drop as people officially leave the job market.
Still, the Obama Administration continually pretends that these failures are successes. However, when compared to the Bush Administration, the failures become more pronounced.
In 2008, as Senator Barack Obama campaigned against Senator John McCain, a popular method of attack was to attack the unpopular Bush Administration and then link McCain’s proposed presidency to that of the Bush presidency.
Exactly five years ago today, October 22nd, 2008, the Obama Campaign shredded the Bush Administration for their black unemployment rate.
Exactly five years ago today, the black unemployment rate was 10.6%. Now it is 12.9%.
“I wish we could say that reaching 10.6 percent is the highest unemployment we’ve had under this administration,” said Alexis Herman, a member of the Obama Campaign.“But we’ve actually seen rates as high as 11.5 percent.”
“The fact is that when you look at the unemployment numbers” under Bush, she said,“we have lost good jobs in our community, particularly in construction and manufacturing, where we are disproportionately employed. Any attempts to continue to open the doors of the middle class and to move us up the economic ladder really have been stopped dead in its tracks by this administration.”
Of course, Herman’s critiques were immediately followed by an explanation of how President Obama would turn things around by supporting increases in federal minimum wage.
