Quit claiming Christie is a victory for theTea Party.
Quit the opposite. Christie shows that people want people who will do what is best for their state & NOT their political Party.
A laugh at you freaking idiots claiming otherwise.
It a joke, just like the Tea Party is a joke.
I don't think Christie is the conservative that he claimed he was either-just saying, that is what he ran as. The first time I saw him speak, I disliked him so much I got up and walked out-he should have been a fat comedian--cause people were sucked in by vulgar humor. Christie's state of NJ instilled a union backed minimum wage increase for every year. His state will be down the tubes worse than it is. Between him and Booker-there won't be a small business left--and the unions will be crying also. The state of NJ is done-there will never be any growth.

<quoted text>The IRS Is Accessing Your Health Records. You Trust Them?

So how do you feel about turning over access to sensitive healthcare information to the Internal Revenue Service?
In the wake of running disclosures of the agency’s nefarious snooping and political targeting, its new role as chief health insurance enforcer should give us heartburn.
Under Obamacare, responsibility for verifying eligibility for the healthcare program, and monitoring whether you carry “qualifying” health coverage (and are exempt from the law’s penalties) falls principally to the IRS.
The IRS was given expansive, new powers to execute these goals. That includes more authority to share your personal information — not only about your income, but also your healthcare.
And the agency’s reach only grows: Former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman told Congress last year that the agency would need another $13.1 billion to implement Obamacare in 2014, on top of the billion it has already spent.
Officials at the U.S. Treasury, the parent of the IRS, have estimated that the IRS now has about 700 full-time staffers working on Obamacare implementation.
Estimates say that eventually, the IRS will need a minimum of 5,000 and perhaps as many of 16,000 additional employees to carry out the new law’s many mandates.
The IRS is under fire this week, after its Director of Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner admitted on Friday that the agency targeted conservatives for special tax-exempt scrutiny during the 2012 election season. IRS targeted tea party types and groups that specifically opposed the Obama Administration.
This abuse should give everyone pause heading into the fall, when the IRS assumes the lead roll in monitoring what kind of health insurance we carry, whether we are eligible for Obamacare, or subject to the legislation’s myriad list of financial penalties.
IRS "scandal" . Debunked a gazillion times.

How High Black Turnout Gave Terry McAuliffe His Win in Virginia

African American voters turned out in huge numbers for the Virginia gubernatorial election, giving Terry McAuliffe a win and proving the "Obama model" can work without Obama.

One of the big questions of the next few years of politics is whether Democrats can replicate the “Obama model” of minority turnout without the presence of Obama on the ballot. If the Virginia gubernatorial election was a test case, then the early answer is a clear “yes.”

After all, the winner in last night’s election—Democratic fundraiser Terry McAuliffe—is a sleazy, corrupt influence peddler who pushed the boundaries on fundraising and enriched himself in the process. He’s the walking embodiment of Washington’s loose relationship with ethics, and an avatar for everything unseemly about the Clinton administration. There’s no reason he should have been a viable candidate for governor in Virginia. But, in a race against the state’s unpopular attorney general, Ken Cuccinelli, McAuliffe had a shot. And he won by a narrow margin of two-and-a-half percentage points, 47.7% to 45.2%. It was a dramatic shift from pre-election polling, which had McAuliffe up by seven points for most of the last week.

The explanation for that decline is straightforward. Overall, the electorate is broadly similar to where it was in 2009, when Virginians gave Republican Bob McDonnell a landslide victory of Democrat Creigh Deeds. It has the same proportion of older people to young people (nearly two-thirds of voters were over 45), and the same proportion of women of men. Likewise, the ideological profile of voters is close to where it was in 2009. Then, the electorate was 18 percent liberal, 42 percent moderate, and 40 percent conservative. This year, it was 20 percent of the electorate called itself liberal, 44 percent moderate and 36 percent conservative.

What’s more, Cuccinelli maintained the GOP’s traditional advantage with white and married women, winning the former by sixteen point spread of 54 percent to 38 percent, and the latter by a solid margin of 51 percent to 42 percent. This was a real change from the polls, which had the former Democratic Party leader with a huge lead among all women. McAuliffe’s actual advantage was with unmarried women, who he won 67 percent to Cuccinelli’s 25 percent.

Where the change from 2009 was most significant was among black voters. Then, African Americans were 16 percent were of the electorate, a significant drop from the 2008 election. This year, blacks were 20 percent of all voters, which means their turnout was exactly where it was in 2012. Put another way, for the second year in a row, African Americans turned out at a rate above their percentage of the population, and supported the Democrat by a 9-to–1 margin.

This is huge. For McAuliffe, what it meant is that—for almost every black voter who went to the polls—he could count on a vote, giving him crucial support in a tight race. To wit, more than 37 percent of his vote total came from African Americans. It’s not hard to see what the race would have looked like with 2009 numbers; a four percent drop in black turnout would have slashed roughly 80,000 votes from McAuliffe’s total, turning Ken Cuccinelli’s narrow loss into a slim victory.

Here's something sure to drive rightwingers even further off the deep end -

FDA to ban artery-clogging trans fats

WASHINGTON (AP)— Heart-clogging trans fats have been slowly disappearing from grocery aisles and restaurant menus in the last decade. Now, the Food and Drug Administration is finishing the job.

The FDA plans to announce later Thursday that it will require the food industry to gradually phase out all trans fats, saying they are a threat to people's health. Commissioner Margaret Hamburg said the move could prevent 20,000 heart attacks a year and 7,000 deaths.

Hamburg said that while the amount of trans fats in the country's diet has declined dramatically in the last decade, they "remain an area of significant public health concern." The trans fats have long been criticized by nutritionists, and New York and other local governments have banned them.

The agency isn't yet setting a timeline for the phase-out, but will collect comments for two months before officials determine how long it will take. Different foods may have different timelines, depending how easy it is to substitute.

"We want to do it in a way that doesn't unduly disrupt markets," says Michael Taylor, FDA's deputy commissioner for foods. Still, he says, "industry has demonstrated that it is by and large feasible to do."

Cheers and Jeers: Thursday

When Chris Christie said, "I sought a second term to finish the job, now watch me do it," it would've been more comforting if he wasn't unloading boxes of dynamite at the time.

In the 24 hours after the polls closed Tuesday, I received 2,397 emails from various campaigns informing me that our work isn’t finished, by which they apparently meant the work involving me giving them money.

Tuesday's Democratic winners will be careful to enact policies that don't overreach. Tuesday's Republican winners will be careful to enact policies that do nothing but overreach.

Rand Paul is a serial plagiarizer who should be, at minimum, publicly reprimanded in the Senate.

Protein is very important for a healthy body, which is why I eat five servings of hair and fingernails every day.

If the goal of the Republican party's 2013 "re-branding" campaign is to insult blacks, Latinos, seniors, LGBT'ers and women even more, then it's working.

The happiest people in the wake of Portland Maine voters' approval of recreational pot were pizza joints and 24-hour convenience stores.

I'm working on my 2014 resolutions. So far I have "Take world hostage with moon laser" listed right after "Build moon laser." I've rented a workbench for the job up at the Gingrich colony.

I love that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker seems to be laying the groundwork for a shot at the presidency. It's like watching a three-year-old run around the house in Daddy's wingtips.

The only possible explanation I can come up with for why the sun is setting an hour earlier today than it did a week ago is sorcery.

Chelsea was obviously not in the minds of the Republicans who decided to make this into national problem.

Like those Republicans never got head in their office..and not only by females. Newt was having an affair in front of his kids at the time.
