Republicans commit felonies routinely. Party affiliation has ZILCH to do with criminal behavior.
Unless, of course, a free press gets hold of it...
And ain't that about a bitch?
I never gave a damn about BJ Clinton's sexual exploits. I figured he was a liberal, that's what liberals do. When you lefties decided to ignore the fact that he committed a felony-- even YOU have to admit he lied under oath-- that's when I got riled.

I recall the allegations you lefties kept flinging at GWB. Why, when gasoline went over $4/gallon he HAD to be profitting from it! Halliburton! Cheney! Too bad you had NO EVIDENCE. I think Princess Pelosi would have peed herself if she could get her hands on actual evidence, but there was none.

I remember a Indiana GOP congressman that texted "inappropriate" stuff to a staffer, he was gone in less than 90 days. You lefties reelected a guy that killed his mistress in a car after a night of boozing on Martha's Vineyard until he died in office 30+ years later. It took you over three years to get rid of a black congressman from New Orleans that had 10's of thousands in bribe money IN HIS FREEZER.

Difference between you lefties and us is we DO clean up our messes. Our guy covers up a break-in at a hotel, he ends up in virtual exile at San Clemente until he dies. You lefties have your slime speak at your convention ten years after he has his genitalia sucked and ejaculates in the face of a 20-year-old employee.

You people are trash. It's too bad trash can vote.

Today Heritage points out 10 stories of job loss as a consequence of Obamacare. They explain:
As employers and businesses prepare for Obamacare’s sweeping changes and mandates to begin in 2014, many are already laying off some of their employees.
Just a couple of examples are the 1,000 jobs that were lost in the Stryker Corporation thanks to Obamacare and at least 7,386 full-time jobs turned part time in Virginia thanks to Obamacare.
The job cuts they identified result from a few different aspects of Obamacare, the medical device tax, Medicare payment cuts, and the employer mandate.
Not only will thousands upon thousands of jobs be lost, but healthcare costs will skyrocket even as quality of care plummets. That’s what government-directed industry does.
That is why Obamacare should be repealed. There are good ideas for real reforms that would empower patients, parents and doctors, not bureaucrats and bean counters. Heritage’s Saving the American Dream plan shows what freedom looks like.

if you agree that it was not an unusual simulation, why are you being such a dickhead?
All future CBO projects are based on current conditions,.

You promoted a report based on a request not to include any revenue & just look at the cost. You then ran screaming though the streets how all this cost was piled onto the debt whren was not buy covered through savings & revenue generation.

This is why you are a dickheasd.

You can;'t admit that you were wrong.

Obamacare is paid for & does not add to the debt.

What is Paul Ryan doing?

PAUL RYAN has released a budget proposal. That's what Paul Ryan does. The nagging question is why. His latest is much like his last, except that the new plan, which Mr Ryan has dubbed "The Path to Prosperity", proposes to balance the budget even faster than he previously proposed to do.(Ezra Klein offers a concise overview of the plan's main outlines with an illustrative companion chart.) If you've noticed that Paul Ryan is not actually vice-president, and that the Republicans do not actually command a majority in the Senate, releasing such a budget may seem a vexing and quixotic exercise. "To take Ryan seriously", writes Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post, "is to believe that legislation repealing the landmark Affordable Care Act would be approved by the Senate, with its Democratic majority, and signed by Obama. What are the odds?" Long.

Even conservative commentators sympathetic to Mr Ryan's earlier fiscal blueprints are put off. Ross Douthat, a right-leaning New York Times columnist, observes that Mr Ryan easily could have improved on his earlier efforts, but instead has delivered "a document that’s arguably more unrealistic than the previous versions of the Ryan budget, and that does little or nothing to bridge the gap between the Congressional GOP and the electorate that just re-elected Barack Obama."

So what's the point? According to Mr Douthat:

...many conservative House Republicans plainly feel like they’ve already been forced to compromise repeatedly of late — on questions like the fiscal cliff, the debt ceiling, and so on — and so they want their official budget to take a more absolutist stand. Hence the quest for ten-year balance, and the promise of pain on every front except (of course) marginal tax rates.

But what's gained by taking such an "absolutist" stand? Do House Republicans really want to make a show of adopting the same Medicare cuts that Mitt Romney and Mr Ryan so vigourously opposed just a few months ago? Do they really want to get behind what Mr Douthat has called "a weird, all-pain version of Obamanomics — in which, for instance, we keep the president’s tax increases and Medicare cuts while eliminating his health care law’s assistance to the uninsured"?

Fiercely debated ammunition limits cleared Colorado's Democratic Legislature on Wednesday and were on their way to the governor, who has said he'll sign the measure into law.

The 15-round magazine limit would make Colorado the first state outside the East Coast to ratchet back gun rights after last year's mass shootings.

Colorado's gun-control debates have been closely watched because of the state's gun-loving frontier heritage and painful history of mass shootings, most recently last summer's movie theater shooting that killed 12.

"I am sick and tired of the bloodshed," said Rep. Rhonda Fields, sponsor of the ammunition limit and a Democrat whose suburban Denver district includes the theater. "Whatever we can do to curb the gun violence and the bloodshed, we have a responsibility to do that."

10 years of taxes for 6 years of service...what a deal.
um, dave...
If you want to know the revenue for the ACA get up off your fat stupid butt & look them up online - apply this to your last sentence.
The initial report was for the cost for ten years starting in 2009. Not all revenue generation nor savings started immediately just as many of the costs.

According to the CBO report, revues grew at about the same rate as expenditures and at no year were the expenditures more than the revenue.

So really, your ten years of revenues vs 6 years of expense is wrong.

If the bill was front loaded with revenue in order to make the 10 year forecast to show no debt, then certainly those last years or year would show the bill to add to the deficit that year.

So once again, you are proven wrong.

I would suggest you get better informed before you make a fool out of yourself yet again.
