Go Wildcats, "People lined up at the Oldham County Public Library in LaGrange, Ky., in October during an open enrollment for health coverage under the Affordable Care Act. Proponents of the health care law have held up Kentucky as a model. The state is far ahead of most in signing up people: More than 21,000 have enrolled in Medicaid under an expansion of that program encouraged by the law, and more than 5,000 have signed up for private plans through the state-run exchange, known as Kynect." Hope those 5000 can pay the bill.

Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured….. But not everyone must prove they are a citizen.
And now, any of those who refuse, or are unable to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens.

NC republikans , attempting to seize Charlotte's airport, created an airport commission and hired Jerry Orr at $211,000 per year to preside over the board without an airport. No problem with the money, just fire 7 more teachers and steal school operation money to pay for that. All this proves to me is that republikans cannot be trusted to govern.
The taxpayer would get more for their money then they are now.

Governor McCrory had to fire 5 teachers and deny supplies to children so he could have bullet proof windows? Gov McCrory didn't get the $250,000 bathroom upgrades even though he felt the bathrooms are not fancy enough for him to shit in. The negative publicity was too costly to his pompous self image. Possibly some internet gambling interests would be able upgrade his toilet so that the public doesn't recognize the smell coming from the governors mansion.

The 5 teachers were incompetent and needed to be fired. If we went to all privately own schools, our children would not be jeopardize by incompetent government workers in the first place.

In addition Mr. McCrory needs another $63,000 to repair cracks in walls, clean up mold, new faucets for upstairs bathrooms and to replace old, faded, scratched counter tops with new marble ones. Oh and there is broken tiles in the floors. This would bring total renovation costs of the mansion to $230,000.00. According to McCrory this is not something a quick trip to Lowes will fix.
Mr. McCrory do you realize how much food and/or school supplies $230,000.00 would buy for the hungry in your state or how this amount might help our teachers who are paying out of pocket to educate our children? Sure you do. Do you care? No you don't. You are a dastard who shall get his due reward.
You would just waste it. The public school are not efficient and are a waste. Taxpayers need to quit losing money turn the school over to commercial management. They would better provide training and not political propaganda.

I object to people saying that congress and Obama are spending like drunken sailors. As a former drunken sailor, I quit spending when I ran out of money.

Had you attended public schools and paid attention, you would would have known to use the word owned rater than own.
Your illiteracy disqualifies your evaluation of the competency of others.

My bet is that you hatred for public schools originates in blaming others for your own lazy myopic stupidity.

If that happens, new NC law would allow idiots like you to strart schools and become teachers, without criminal background checks or any formal education. What could possible go wrong?

I am thinking Christie will be the most likely republican candidate. He may be the last one in the republican party with any sense at all that independents can vote for. Republicans cannot win without the independent vote. The anti- education, anti- woman, anti- immigration, anti-poor, anti-unemployed, anti-seniors, anti-children, anti-minorities, anti -voting rights, anti -gays, anti-freedom of religion tea baggers have solidly labeled the republican party as the party of stupid that cannot be trusted to govern.

Continuing to demonstrate their stupidity, the republican party is attacking the AARP and senior citizens..
Seniors vote at a rate of around 70% and there are over 135,000,000 registered senior votes in the USA. That's around 94.5 million votes .

It's incredible that 42% of people that call themselves Americans think that this unqualified, incompetent, dishonorable, ego-driven Socialist leader is doing a good job. Take a moment. Admit it to yourself. You know who his supporters are. They are the people that taxes support financially. Did you notice who Obama threatened when he wasn't getting his way on raising the debt ceiling? He threatened to not pay:
Military retirees
Social security
Disability
Federal retirees
Now let this sink in really good.
He did not threaten to stop payments to illegal aliens
He did not threatened to take frivolous benefits such as internet access away from violent inmates
He did not offer to fire some of the thousands of unnecessary federal employees that he hired.
He did not offer to cut down on his or his wife's frivolous gallivanting around.$20 million already spent on family vacations.(One million on a FL golf outing). All our money...why not?
He did not threaten to not pay the senators and representatives or any of their staff
He did not threaten to take benefits away from welfare recipients
He did not threaten the food stamp programs
He did not threaten to reduce payments in foreign aid
He did not threaten to cut back on anything that involves his base voters The list could go on and on. He is in full political mode!
Why are we allowing these people to destroy this wonderful country with their selfishness and his lies? Have WE lost our back bone to fight for Freedom
We need to support the people in the House and Senate that are willing to cut taxes and spending.
Forget change - Americans want to take our country back from the socialists! We the people are coming.

(Reuters)- Twitter Inc and 11 other technology companies have enough stock-option tax breaks to avoid paying billions of dollars in taxes over the next several years, a consumer group said on Tuesday.

Citizens for Tax Justice, a left-leaning tax activist and research group, said it analyzed U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission 2012 filings for 11 public technology companies and Twitter, which is planning an initial public offering this week.

CTJ said the companies have stockpiled enough unused tax breaks for executive stock options to eliminate all income taxes on the next $11.4 billion of U.S. income they collectively earn.

When employees are paid in corporate stock options, the issuing companies can take a tax deduction for the difference between what the employees pay for the options and what the stocks are worth when the options are exercised years later.

"Tax breaks for executive stock options have become an increasingly effective corporate tax avoidance tool," CTJ said.

Twitter has $107 million of unused stock option deductions it can apply to future earnings, the report said.

Facebook Inc has $2.2 billion in unused tax breaks that may be used to offset future income, meaning the company's next $6.2 billion in U.S. earnings could be tax free, CTJ said.

Twitter and Facebook did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Tuesday.

CTJ praised pending legislation sponsored by Senator Carl Levin, a Michigan Democrat, that would pare back the stock option tax break to some extent.

"The most sensible long-term step would be to repeal the stock option tax break entirely, but Levin's bill is a welcome step in that direction," CTJ said. Obama buddy from Facebook could get 6.2 BILLION tax free. Lucky him.

While Burr has left his promises to his constituency behind just like Obama has, he's the best of the worst.... need all new blood in congress to fix the corruption. burr's a huge disappointment, but compared to the current alternatives, not much to work with. Regarding the Dems.... a former dem: the dems promises from obama, Price and the entire left-crew have fallen short for the real people. same ole' good-ole-boy's enriching themselves. I've discovered the "rich white republicans" as I used to think of them, really are more for the common folk, than any dem ever has been. dems are on the take, elitist crony capitalist

Strange that all my children attended public schools, did very well, excelled in college and now have very good jobs. Most of my friends and relatives children attended public schools, did very well, excelled in college and now have good jobs. My neighbor's kid attended public schools, was constantly in trouble, frequently truant, didn't do his homework, cheated on tests, had a bad attitude , smoked MJ and drank alcohol, dropped out of school and is now in prison. That reprobate today blames public schools for all his problems. The ones who were successful attribute their success to the education they received in public schools and colleges. Strange. What happened with you?
