Chimerex, drug company that has received 72 million dollars in federal funding, has denied a drug that would save a kids life.... Company says drug is too expensive... Although still in testing the drug has proven effective for the kids condition... too bad the kid isn't black... They could have pulled out the old race card... oddly enough the company has given out this drug before, with FDA approval, many times....

I have always opposed abortion. "Partial birth " abortion is nothing but infanticide. Hillary supports abortion. Romney makes money burning the bodies , calls them "medical waste" and claims he opposes abortion. I cannot give political allegiance to either of these persons or their political parties. Every election year, in every office, there are candidates who disagree with my perspective on a number of issues. That leaves me to decide to vote for the one I consider the lesser of evils.

City at War over charter schools... DeBlasio tows the union line as he dismantles charter schools to please teacher unions... 92%of charter school kids were minority children... Want to find out about the real political thugs? Unions have out-donated everyone in their desire to purchase political influence... Funny, Reid didn't mention them...

. Was that a teacher? NO!! It was an "administrator" making probably 5 times as much as a teacher and never teaching a single child. For every 39 teachers in America actually teaching children, there are 61 "administrative and support" personnel . To hell with spending money on text books and teachers. Hire more administrators , spend money on tests and spend 15% of the school year giving test on which no instruction has been funded. It is the ideal that our problems can be solved with more whipmasters. In reality, educational progress is achieved in spite of administrators, not because of them.

Romney was no longer affiliated with that company. However, the company collected ALL MEDICAL WASTE from hospitals.. are they supposed to save it??? Are you in favor of medical waste being bronzed, like little baby shoes, and saved forever??

There is a court injunction in NC against giving state tax money to "charter " schools. That means that such " charter" schools as Greensboro Islamic Academy will not be receiving $4300 for each of the 168 students who have made application for the "opportunity scholarships " offered by the NC republican legislature on the taxpayers dime..NC teachers are legally barred from collective bargaining. I would like to see union membership sweep through NC teachers like a dose of Epsom salts. No coal or salt mine workers ever needed a union more than NC teachers.

Like Romney was no longer affiliated with the Georgetown Steel fiasco? It doesn't matter what you do with the remains after someone or something is dead. If you cannot see the philosophical hypocrisy in profiteering off abortion and supposedly opposing abortion,, our thought processes are certainly not equal

" Bain Capital which had acquired controlling interest of GST Steel in 1993 for $24.5 million." Note: not SOLE interest.
Romney had left Bain in 1999 before the bankruptcy. Employees noted that Bain had loaded the company with debt while earning profits ($58.4 million). At the time of its bankruptcy it said it owed $553.9 million in debts against $395.2 million in assets. In 2002 it was revealed the company had underfunded the pension for employees by $44 million" not " The South Carolina plant closed in 2003. That plant reopened in 2003 with a different owner (International Steel Group) later Mittal Steel and later ArcelorMittal. During the 2012 U.S. Presidential election laid off plant worker Joe Soptic was featured in an advertisement against Romney claiming that his wife died of cancer after he lost his health insurance in the closing. The ad stated "When Mitt Romney and Bain closed the plant, I lost my healthcare, and my family lost their healthcare. And a short time after that my wife became ill." An investigation by the Washington Post showed that Soptic's wife had died of cancer in 2006 five years after the plant closed and that she had her own health insurance at the time of the closing but lost it after she left that job in 2002." As usual, your politics blinds you to FACT, as you walk down the yellow brick road.
