DOJ? Is this joke?

Holder is an outright liar, awash in scandals.

This is the same guy that declared the Ft. Hood massacre "workplace violence".

Same guy that won't ever use the term "muslim terrorists" when referencing horrors committed by muslim extremists.

Same guy that won't allow Arizona to deal with their immigrant problems.

Lied under oath about his complicity in singling out a reporter and confiscating his communications - to include his parents!

Holder is a racist liar. Anyone who uses this corrupt politician's judgement as anything other than laughable, has an agenda.

An anti-American agenda.

WASHINGTON (AP)— The Justice Department said Thursday it will sue Texas over the state’s voter ID law and will seek to intervene in a lawsuit over the state’s redistricting laws.
Attorney General Eric Holder said the action marks another step in the effort to protect voting rights of all eligible Americans. He said the government will not allow a recent Supreme Court decision to be interpreted as open season for states to pursue measures that suppress voting rights.
“This represents the department’s latest action to protect voting rights, but it will not be our last,” said the attorney general.
On June 25, the Supreme Court threw out the most powerful part of the Voting Rights Act, whose enactment in 1965 marked a major turning point in black Americans’ struggle for equal rights and political power. The Justice Department’s legal action in Texas is based on another provision in the law. Texas Gov. Rick Perry has called the Obama administration’s actions an “end-run around the Supreme Court.”
In the voter ID lawsuit, the U.S. government will contend that Texas adopted a voter identification law with the purpose of denying or restricting the right to vote on account of race, color or membership in a language minority group.
Intervening in the redistricting case would enable the federal government to seek a declaration that Texas’s 2011 redistricting plans for the U.S. Congress and the Texas State House of Representatives were adopted in order to deny or restrict the right to vote on account of race, color, or membership in a language minority group.
A federal court in Washington, D.C., has previously held that Texas failed to meet its burden of proving that its 2011 redistricting plans and its 2011 voter identification law were not discriminatory.
Is this any worse than the Medicare baloney? There is no color boundary when it comes to limiting health care with Medicare. They have their guidelines and limits that make it almost impossible for Doctors to take care of the seniors the way they should. It's like they prefer seniors die so they don't have to pay out anything. Remember, most of the seniors have worked and paid in. Why should they or anybody have the right to choose who lives or dies because of age. This is prejudice at its finest. Will the Justice Department or Eric Holder sue Medicare for denying services to seniors? They should set up an online agency where citizens can make complaints and someone will actually do something about it to get seniors the healthcare they deserve. Medicare is use to lots of complaints and just blow them off. It is disrespectful and down right cruel.
