How could they admit flaws on a bill that they never read?

It was actually Justice Scalia who said he couldn't be bothered to read the law, not Democrats.

----------

JUSTICE SCALIA: Mr. Kneedler, what happened to the Eighth Amendment? You really want us to go through these 2,700 pages?(Laughter.) And do you really expect the Court to do that? Or do you expect us to — to give this function to our law clerks? Is this not totally unrealistic? That we are going to go through this enormous bill item by item and decide each one?

And he voted against it..whats your point? Was he speaking for everyone or just making a general statement? It's the same in congress when BIG bills are put to vote some thousands of pages long, each and everyone doesnt read all the crap. They have lawyers and accountants and people working before them that are suppose to read through all the garbage. The Supreme court judges are no different. Dont blame one judge ,blame the system on both sides.

So you agree that the whole "they didn't read it" charge is nonsense. Of course the bill was read, just maybe by staff and not the congressmen themselves.

I was in the mood for a joke, but then I lost it - you're implying healthcare isn't a human right. I think it is. I'll never understand how Christians, of all groups, are the biggest opponents of healthcare to millions of Americans who don't have it - and die, daily, because of it.

But denying healthcare to those who need it most isn't a Christian ideology - it's a right-wing ideology. But I guess you can't be one and not the other these days, right?

!LOL!: "So you agree that the whole "they didn't read it" charge is nonsense."

Is there ANYthing you WON'T lie about, Lil danny BOY?

How typically dishonest of you to obfuscate the understandable embarrassment of legislators voting on bills they've not read. Who had time to read that 1000 page cobbled mess in three days? LOL

"Senator Max Baucus, one author of Obamacare and one of its biggest proponents, admitted in 2010 that he never read the bill. He said that reading the bill would be a waste of his time. Now, Baucus, "a key architect of the healthcare reform law," warns that implementing Obamacare will cause a huge train wreck."

Of course there's also Pelosi's infamous remark, "But we have to pass the [health care] bill so that you can find out what’s in it....”

Still the same Lil danny BOY: plagiarist, racist, pathological liar.

And you are ALREADY supporting those who pay nothing. People who don't take responsibility and buy health insurance cost the rest of us about $50 billion a year.
!LOL!

danny BOY, do you never tire of being a liar?

Servile Obama chumps are saying that "Overall the ACA will cost Americans less and reduce the deficit." Honest Americans know better.

Eight years of presidency and Obama's signature piece of legislation unfortunately will result in the dismantling and degradation of America's formerly great health care system. How soon before it's Bush's fault?

It is the Constitutional role of the government to protect our unalienable human rights. It's not about "uncle sugar." It's about justice.

But obviously you're unfamiliar with those concepts since your guiding principle is personal selfishness, self-righteous, and judgmental condemnation of those you judge to be inferior.

What was that verse you quoted from Jesus? You know, the one where he harshly criticized your fellow Pharisees? He was talking to YOU.

Obama allows armed foreign troops in America
As part of a deal signed last week in Washington DC between the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry and FEMA, Russian officials will provide “security at mass events” in the United States, a scenario that won’t sit well with Americans wary of foreign assets operating on US soil.
According to a press release by the Ministry of the Russian Federation for Civil Defense and Emergencies, US and Russian officials met on June 25 at the 17th Joint U.S.-Russia Cooperation Committee on Emergency Situations.
In addition to agreeing with FEMA to “exchange experts during joint rescue operations in major disasters,” the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry will also be providing “security at mass events” in the United States.
This suggests that events designated as “National Special Security Events” by the Department of Homeland Security, which include the Super Bowl, international summits such as the G8 and presidential inaugurations, will now rely partly on Russian authorities to provide security.
http://www.beaufortobserver.net/Articles-NEWS...
You missed these two paragraphs...

"Concerns about foreign troops being used on US soil have lingered ever since the release of State Department Publication 7277, which is a blueprint for the harmonization of US and Russian forces under a framework of United Nations-led global government.

Back in 2008 it was also reported that US and Canadian authorities had signed an agreement that would pave the way to using each other’s militaries on both sides of the border “during an emergency”."

When was "State Department Publication 7277 released? 1961. Is Obama to blame for that?

Who was President in 2008 when the agreement was signed with Canada? Is Obama responsible for that too?

This article is so packed full of nationalistic paranoia and hysterical fearmongering, it's impossible to tell what the truth actually is. There's no reason for rational, intelligent people to take it seriously.

Interesting.

If you read the actual Russian press release, it doesn't say ANYTHING about foreign troops on American soil.

----------

Several documents signed during joint work of Russian Emergency Ministry and FEMA

he Russian Emergency Situations Ministry and the USA Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are going to exchange experts during joint rescue operations in major disasters. This is provided by a protocol of the fourth meeting of the U.S.-Russia Bilateral Presidential Commission Working Group on Emergency Situations and seventeenth meeting of Joint U.S.-Russia Cooperation Committee on Emergency Situations, which took place in Washington on 25 June.

The document provides for expert cooperation in disaster response operations and to study the latest practices.

In addition, the parties approved of U.S.-Russian cooperation in this field in 2013-2014, which envisages exchange of experience including in monitoring and forecasting emergency situations, training of rescuers, development of mine-rescuing and provision of security at mass events.

At the end of the meeting the parties expressed their satisfaction with the level of cooperation between the Russian Federation and the United States in the area of emergency prevention and response and agreed to develop it in order to respond efficiently to all kinds of disasters.

It requires a fearful and paranoid imagination to draw the conclusions your rightwing extremist site.

income tax is a penalty for working

ACA is a power grab using left cover by the multinational megabank owned and operated corporations, cronies will get rich -> just like all the 'GREEN' scams

sovereign nations and rugged individualism are a threat to the elite, the Federal Reserve banking system has hijacked this country under the disguise of a two headed one controlled party left/right paradigm

things which were 'conspiracy' are now main stream - NSA government spying - more will follow

people are waking up - yes they are

and the left paradigm low grade morons are still worshiping their false idol

LOL! You didn't read the report, did you?

The only way the ACA adds to the deficit is under the so-called “alternative fiscal scenario" where all the cost containment measures withing the ACA are eliminated.

If the ACA is implemented AS IS under current law it will REDUCE the deficit.

In other words - the only way to arrive at the number you're reporting is for the GOP to gut the ACA. So if that happens, it's because Republicans MADE it happen.
