You miss the irony of your own point. You and republicans want bureaucratic intervention on deciding on private donor transplants while Sebellius wants the decision to be left up to the doctors and hospital.

Political hacks like Sebelius should have no role in making medical decisions or setting medical policy.

I don't mind helping those who need a hand up durring some hard times but as far as the ungrateful parasites who only survive off the labor of others ,let them starve in the street.they deserve nothing.
In 2001, the Republican controlled congress "mandated that Food Stamps be converted from paper coupons to Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards." People no longer have to be embarassed by the use of Food Stamps. IMO, that was a mistake.

Supposedly the move was made to save the government money by not printing the coupons. What it really did was allow private contractors (now responsible for printing the cards) to pad their pockets with taxpayer dollars. Typical Republican smoke and mirrors maneuver to take care of their own. With 44.5 million people using EBT cards, that's a lot of cash in their pockets.

Susan Rice insisted that the Benghazi attack was caused by a video that nobody had seen. The woman is a proven idiot and blind to terrorism.

As for the UN ambassador post, that is a meaningless job in which even an idiot like Rice can do no harm, except to make a fool of herself on TV.

maybe you should check the demographics from the 2012 election. weren't there black neighborhoods that had zero votes for Mitt?
if you want to know why that happened.....just read your post.
the fact is: black folks aren't stupid enough to vote for those who live only in White World.
Oh wow, you are dumber than first suspected.

Yes, there were "neighborhoods" that had zero votes for Mitt.
What exactly does that prove?
There were also "neighborhoods" that had zero votes for every president in your lifetime. There are always "neighborhoods" that vote one way or another.
A black neighborhood with zero votes for Mitt amounts to proof of nothing more than history repeating itself as it does in every election for every name ever listed on the ballet. DUH.
There were also black neighborhoods that did vote for Mitt, just like there were white neighborhoods that voted for Obama.
You have to be really shallow to reduce everything to the color of one's skin.

You really are a special kind of stupid aren't you????

I somewhat agree with you. Although I'm not sure about republicans padding their pockets. It would seem to me that would be a bipartisan thing. Everybody wants their hand in free money. Using an EBT card to save printing the stamps is a good thing. However I think it should make people uncomfortable to be seen using one. It will give them an incentive to get off of them. Hell I say have a special line for EBT only. The catch being the computer registers on the other lanes be programed not to except them. I like that idea! Give them their own lane.

Maybe we should feel sorry for Rice. If she got trapped in the liberal power grabbing machine, betrayal is not an option without great personal sacrifice.

The powers that be hate betrayal from their own useful tools more than the opposition from the enemy.

Tyrants in the past executed their generals for losing a battle. Betrayal wasn't an option for their useful tools either.

Same principle.

My mistake. Three years. I forgot that the visitor logs for the Bush administration aren't available.(Shulman was appointed by Bush in 2008.)

"Official White House visitor logs show Shulman's scheduled White House visits came between October 2009 and December 2012".

Of Shulman's meetings recorded in the visitor logs, 40 listed his "visitee" as Nancy Ann DeParle, who acted as the director of the White House Office of Health Reform and Fifty-four visit records list Sarah Fenn (special assistant to the deputy chief of staff) as Shulman's "visitee."

It takes common sense to realize that Obama's health care law created a massive new workload for the IRS. Only a conservative would be clueless.

PS. Your math is still wrong.

Processing paper coupons would be an enormous cost for business.
