Good luck with that. Over the past three years the GOP-controlled House of Representatives has launched one of the most extreme assaults on women's choice the U.S. has seen in decades. Republicans voted twice to slash federal family planning funds for low-income women, moved to prevent women from using their own money to buy insurance plans that cover abortion, introduced legislation that would force women to have ultrasounds before receiving an abortion and, most recently, passed a bill that will allow hospitals to refuse to perform emergency abortions for women with life-threatening pregnancy complications.
Not to mention, last year, a number of Republican pro-life candidates have made some very public, roundly rebuked remarks about rape and a woman's right to abortion—and drew the ire of voters of both genders and on both sides of the political spectrum.
Todd Akin (Republican; U.S. Representative for Missouri's 2nd congressional district, running for U.S. Senate seat) The remark:"If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."
Richard Mourdock (Republican; Indiana State Treasurer, running for U.S. Senate seat) The remark:"I believe that life begins at conception. The only exception I have to have an abortion is in that case of the life of the mother. I just struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize life is that gift from God—that I think even if life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen."
Roger Rivard (Republican; Wisconsin State Assembly—District 75, running for re-election) The remark: Rivard maintained that the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel had taken his quotes out of context when he said, "Some girls rape easy." His full explanation, offered later on.
John Koster (Republican; Snohomish County councilman, running for U.S. House of Representatives seat from Washington—District 1) The remark: "Incest is so rare, I mean it's so rare. But the rape thing, you know, I know a woman who was raped and kept the child, gave it up for adoption and doesn't regret it. In fact, she's a big pro-life proponent. But, on the rape thing it's like, how does putting more violence onto a woman's body and taking the life of an innocent child that's a consequence of this crime, how does that make it better?"

Cons are REALLY SLOW. They are always looking backwards, saying "Weren't the 20's great?" They were until Nov 1, 1929 which was kinda like all of 2008! They do not get it. They cannot see the forest for the trees.... ever. They just have talking points. They are the victims of the Reagan Revolution's dumbing down of America and are just blind to the fact that they cannot possibly expect to govern. They DO have the luxury of repealing a law 46 times, of coming up with budgets that are dead on arrival and are generally having a lot of fun earning $147,000 per year working less than what, 150 days? Great gig if you get it and they are REALLY loving it. Talk about a welfare check!!!

John Boehner loves tanning beds thanks to the tax payers !
If Johnny gets any darker the GOP will have a black Speaker !!!!!!!!!
#54845 Dec 5, 2013
Yeah Boehner. After decades of demeaning women, and doing your best to not allow women in this country to have decent healthcare and control over their own bodies.
Just a few counceling sessions on how to talk to women should be enough to get them on your side. Yeah, that should work!

John Boehner: I've 'Never Been In A Tanning Bed Or Used A Tanning Product'
Addressing the seemingly constant chatter about the orangey-tan color of his skin, House Minority Leader John Boehner told the Wall Street Journal in an interview published Thursday that his eye-catching complexion is one hundred percent natural.
"I have never been in a tanning bed or used a tanning product," explained the ranking Republican. He said that his mother and four of his twelve siblings also have the sun-kissed glow.
The explanation comes as only the latest in a string of recent instances where Boehner has found himself playing defense against questions and jokes made about the color of his skin.
Earlier this month during an appearance on ABC's "Good Morning America," the House leader was asked about a survey from Public Policy Polling indicating that 30 percent voters in his home state of Ohio think he "spends too much time on his tan."

how about we put term limits on state legislators and cut their salaries and benefits? The state needs to get out of the pension business. Then, there would be a lot of money for roads and education. Sell the State Store system. Corbett gets my vote.

Extending Unemployment 'One of Best Ways to Grow the Economy'
"Economists agree that unemployment benefits remain one of the best ways to grow the economy in a very immediate way.
It immediately injects demand into our markets and increases employment.
For every dollar spent on unemployment benefits, the economy grows by, according to one estimate,
So somewhere in that range, but much more than is spent on it," Pelosi said.

In Reversal, Obama Admits He Knew His Uncle
President Barack Obama has admitted he lived with his Kenyan uncle in the 1980s
— an embarrassing flip-flop from an earlier White House claim that the two had never met.
The commander-in-chief revealed on Thursday that he had stayed at the Cambridge, Mass., apartment of Onyango Obama as he prepared to attend Harvard Law School.
That contradicted a statement issued by the White House last year that there was no record of the two ever meeting, The Boston Globe reports.

Portland, Oregon..Most Racist State Of The Union

Over at Zero Hedge, Tyler Durden has an interesting answer:
Emmerich analyzes disposable income and economic benefits among several key income classes and comes to the stunning (and verifiable) conclusion that
“a one-parent family of three making $14,500 a year (minimum wage) has more disposable income than a family making $60,000 a year.”
And that excludes benefits from Supplemental Security Income disability checks.
America is now a country which punishes those middle-class people who not only try to work hard, but avoid scamming the system.
