The "deal" is pure bullsh!t.
And now the Tea Party will be more empowered than ever.
Thanks to yesterday's vote, we have identified all enemies of freedom and fiscal responsibility.

“Meh.”

Seems pretty legit. All the tea party folks seem to be polling shockingly high while Obama's approval has just guttered out through this...

Obama is at 37% in a Gallup Poll. That's GWB territory.

Everyday hard working middle class people have seen their entire lives and money dissipate because of Conservative deregulation, "free" instead of "fair" trade, and letting the unbridled pursuit of profit at any cost, that they'll continue to vote Democrat to keep your greedy asses at a minimum minority.
Even Paul Krugman says that trucking deregulation and free trade are beneficial for the economy.

Let's not forget who really caused the wage stagnation... a certain bill called "The Immigration Act of 1965".

But I don't expect a leftist, especially a black one, to ever say anything against the goal of punishing YT at all cost.

Unlike the 1995 shutdown, it doesn't seem that the Occupier has won.

The GOP establishment are the biggest losers. McConnell may have been able to eek out a primary win before this week, but no longer.

Bevin will defeat him, and KY will be the first state with two Tea Party senators.

Similar results to the special election in MA a few weeks prior, but with a far more conservative candidate, and a far more charismatic leftist opponent.

If the Fatfook had set the election consistent with the regular one in November, an actually campaigned with Lonegan, I dare say that the results would have been different.

Matt Bevin is definitely the biggest winner from last night. There's not a single Kentuckian to be seen cheering for the $3.2 billion in pork McConnell slid into the legislation.
I can't wait to see his poll numbers...he'll be lucky to get 20%.

Frankly, I was appalled at PORK additions to the bill, at a time when everyone is bitching about spending too much money!
Doesn't make sense...it was not a clean bill, and pulling a stunt like that and it being passed, will lose the election for good ol' Mitch!

I did not know that the entire state of Kentucky is completely devoid of people who make their livings working on public works projects.

No professional engineers? No licensed surveyors? No inspectors? No engineering technicians? No steelworkers? No cement masons? No formworkers? No carpenters? No pipelayers? No construction lawyers?
No health and safety techs? No heavy equipment operators? No construction laborers? No traffic controllers?

How do they get by down there?

Do you know how to read? I said I see nobody cheering, not that those who work in those fields don't exist.
I consider that money well spent for the effect it's going to have on McConnell's political future...it's the final nail.

What a big surprise. Hours of bullshit from amateur political analysts and not a single post attempting to explain how the recent legislation is unconstitutional.

What in the hell are you talking about? Would you like to take a stab at this?

When The New York Times asked President Obama about the legal objections raised to the employer mandate delay, he answered with the following.

“I’m not concerned about their opinions,” Obama said of legislators who raised concerns.“Very few of them, by the way, are lawyers, much less constitutional lawyers.”

The Obama administration has made numerous adjustments and tweaks to the Affordable Care Act as the law has come into effect. Two recent decisions – one to delay enforcement of the employer mandate until 2015, and another to allow Congress to continue paying for health benefits – have raised questions about how far that discretion should go, whether the White House has overstepped its executive authority.

“This is one of the perennial questions in administrative law: How much power can you claim from statutory ambiguity?” says Nicholas Bagley, who teaches administrative law at the University of Michigan Law School.“The hard question for those of us trying to ascertain the bounds is how flexible are laws, and how much power do we believe Congress gives to the executive branch?”

The White House can’t simply decide not to set up a law; that much is clear in the constitution, which says the executive branch “shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed.”

So, where does that leave us with the Affordable Care Act? Michael McConnell, a former judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, has made perhaps the highest-profile argument that the decision was illegal. His case is that the employer mandate delay does more than show flexibility – it dispenses with law altogether.

“Statute does provide broad discretion, but unless there’s some explicit statutory authorization they don’t have the right not to do it,” McConnell, who now directs the Constitutional Law Center at Stanford University's School of Law, says.“That’s the difference. Suspending and dispensing with statutes are equally impermissible.”

Having had worked in that field for approximately 17 years, I can guarantee you that the people employed in those fields are quite pleased that they will have a several years of work as a result of that pork barrel being filled.

They may not "cheer" so that you can hear it, because you're stuck in your basement pissin and moaning on you're keyboard, and you have never been employed in the public construction industry. But if you were to walk into the offices of the corporations likely to submit competitive bids on that project, you will find thousands of happy folks. The estimators are probably working overtime right now.
