What favoritism? He has refused to grant Gray's request. How is that showing favoritism? He is doing the exact opposite of showing favoritism by standing firm on not making any exceptions.
Since when did Reid do that? It was just yesterday he was caught telling the D.C. mayor who asked for full funding in spite of the shutdown, "I'm on your side. Don't screw it up."

Unless it was today after he got caught.

So what does "don't screw it up" even mean? Did he mean don't screw up punishing the people to get back at Republicans?

What?

If massive numbers of Republicans move to the Libertarian Party, they will take over the party and make it adhere to its platform.
2.4 Government Finance and Spending
All persons are entitled to keep the fruits of their labor. We call for the repeal of the income tax, the abolishment of the Internal Revenue Service and all federal programs and services not required under the U.S. Constitution. We oppose any legal requirements forcing employers to serve as tax collectors. Government should not incur debt, which burdens future generations without their consent. We support the passage of a "Balanced Budget Amendment" to the U.S. Constitution, provided that the budget is balanced exclusively by cutting expenditures, and not by raising taxes.
Sorry, this is so late as it took me a while to locate your post.

If this is the Libertarian platform, how are government programs paid for?

Obamacare ALREADY refuses to provide a lung to a little girl!
See? You idiot Liberal blind idiot Are an idiot as an idiot can be!
I only hope and pray that your littler daughter or relative girl need a lung and gets rejected too!!!
Obamacare had absolutely nothing to do with the lung for that little girl and you know it. Just another Republican lie. The policy that places children under age 12 at the bottom of the adult lung transplant list, regardless of their illness has been in place for decades and is in the hands of the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network, not Obama.

USA Today, AP, June 11, 2013

"Faced with a federal judge’s order in the heart-wrenching cases of two terminally ill children seeking lung transplants, a national review board sought a balance that will keep such decisions in the hands of doctors, not lawyers or judges. The executive committee of the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network held an emergency teleconference Monday evening and resisted making rule changes for children under 12 seeking lung transplants, but it created a special appeal and review system to hear such cases. Dr. Arthur Caplan, a bioethicist at New York University’s Langone Medical Center, said the vote showed that the medical profession doesn’t believe that it should be pressured into making hasty changes to the entire national transplant system based on a single case. He said the judge’s ruling “did hit a moral nerve” because the network recognizes the need to examine the claim that the 12-year-old distinction for lung transplants is arbitrary, but the network also tried to “preserve the integrity of the system by not changing the rule” based on court intervention.”

In the mean time, Democrat Detroit declares bankruptcy while their Major goes to jail for acting as a typical Democrat criminal.
"When Walker took office, the LFB forecast a $56.3 million SURPLUS – after accounting for the $65 million statutory “minimum balance.” That’s correct – Wisconsin was poised for a surplus on the day Scott Walker took office." However, by the end of 2011, Walker was faced with a deficit.

LMAO. In order to show a "surplus" "Scott Walker pushed off paying state debt in the amount of over $500 million to 2030. The interest paid will total over $156 million."

"It is critical to understand that the deficit Scott Walker created in 2011, and decrease in revenue collections from his fiscal policies are the very reason this debt is being pushed off over two decades – placing a higher burden on future generations."

"Scott Walker placed the existing debt, which should have been paid this year, on a giant credit card – to be paid long after he is out of office."

SMOKE AND MIRRORS, the Republican way.

I soooo love my Governor. Look no further than to the south-O'bama's home state of Illinois, and you can see how liberalism destroyed even the smallest sense of responsibility. 50% of funding for Illinois, comes from the Federal government. They should be cut off. They would be--but Illinois is the liberal base.

There you go twisting things again.
FACT: Only 33 percent hate Obamacare and want to see it repealed, delayed, or defunded.
EVERYONE ELSE wants to see it succeed or even expanded.
You can repeat "Americans hate Obamacare" over and over again until you are blue in the face but that old axiom "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it" just isn't working out for you.
From your poll.

Only 26% wants it implemented as is.

People hate Obamacare.

This is too:

- Being a liberal at age 18 means you have a big heart

- Being a liberal at age 30 means you have a small brain

Since you are about age 90, you are a triple idiot...

Jay Carney couldn't even tell a reporter after being asked repeatedly when the president learned of the unbelievable incompetence that allowed this to happen.
It was like deja vu and the press conferences about Benghazi and the corruption in the IRS all over again.
Seems Obama is always above the fray and Carney has no clue as to what the president knows and doesn't know about anything when it's his frikkin' job to know.
What difference does it make when the President learned about the death benefits? He acted on it immediately. It's the incompetent Congress that failed to include those benefits in the Pay Our Military Act that holds the bag on that one. Period.
