Yes, I posted it because my stupid republican nephew sent it to me. I told him it was all lies and had been debunked. Haven't heard from him since. Now, it has surfaced here by more dummies who got the same email. You people just keep passing around the propaganda; no questions asked. Anyone with half a brain would read that and know it's all b/s
Even lily's nephew has deserted her; at least there is one sober person in the family.

Support the EPA’s Ethanol Reduction
Posted December 13, 2013

Our engines are safe – for now.
Facing reality, the Environmental Protection Agency proposed to reduce the amount of ethanol required to be blended into fuel. This means that E15 – fuel that’s 15 percent ethanol – won’t be forced into the market next year.

We can’t get too comfortable, however. The special interest groups that benefit from ethanol production are fighting the EPA’s proposal. They want to force high-ethanol fuel onto the marketplace. They will do all they can to get the EPA to reverse itself.

If they succeed, we could see fuel rationing and much higher gasoline and diesel costs. A study shows that leaving the RFS untouched could even lead to a $770 billion reduction in our nation’s GDP. T hat’s what’s at stake in the fight over the ethanol mandate.

Before this ethanol reduction can go into effect, the EPA has to seek comments from the public. This public comment period is happening right now. It’s vital that Energy Citizens let the EPA know that they support its decision in this area.

The EPA’s action was necessary to prevent immediate problems with our fuel supply. We know that the real solution to these problems is repealing the Renewable Fuel Standard. Ultimately, Congress needs to protect consumers and get rid of the ethanol mandate. For right now, however, let’s make sure the EPA does the right thing.

Yes I'm sure you guys are enjoying this immensely but Politifact failed to note the pending lawsuits in California against Anthem Blue Cross, who intentionally rolled their insureds out of grandfathered plans in order to line up their ducks for the 2014 healthcare exchange rollout. But Politifact conveniently places all of the blame on the guy who made that statement because he was naive about how utterly craven the insurance industry is. The real lying liars here are health insurers who intentionally misled customers to make a switch that they knew well in advance would have twin consequences of harming policyholders and harming the ACA.
the Obama strategy will be to blame the colossal failure of ObamaKKKare on the insurance companies...and all the fellow-travelers in the media will sing that song...

BARBARA WALTERS TO PIERS MORGAN:‘WE THOUGHT THAT [OBAMA] WAS GOING TO BE…THE NEXT MESSIAH’

“I shouldn’t say this at Christmastime,” Barbara Walters told Piers Morgan on his show Tuesday night. But despite her best judgment, she went on to say it – and it was quite a controversial statement.
What exactly was it?
“We thought that he was going to be – I shouldn’t say this at Christmastime, but – the next messiah,” she told Morgan.
The response came after Morgan asked why Obama has faced so much opposition, and “Why is he struggling so much to really fulfill the great flame of ambition and excitement that he was elected on originally in 2009?”
“He made so many promises,” she began.“We thought that he was going to be – I shouldn’t say this at Christmastime, but – the next messiah. And the whole Obamacare, or whatever you want to call it, that Affordable Health Act, it just hasn’t worked for him, and he’s stumbled around on it, and people feel very disappointed because they expected more.”
She added:“It’s very difficult when the expectations for you are very high. You’re almost better off when they are low and then they rise and rise.”
Kind of makes you want to puke!
Yes, it does...make you want to puke. Walters and others' own stupidity put this president on such a high pedestal without any reasonable cause or justification - or even a small amount of intelligence - to do so. He could have been a black Hugo Chavez and she and they would have put him on the same ridiculously high pedestal.

These are the people who scare the living phooey out of me. Who are they? Where did they come from? And what did they do with my fellow Americans?

I don't know or recognize any of them. If they were so easily fooled this time...it's hard to imagine their willingness to fall prostrate before and surrender to the next imposter...who could be even worse. Walters just looks like a fool.

Republicans support a lower wage floor than Democrats, when asked separately about their preferred dollar amount. On average, Democrats favor a minimum wage of just over $10, while Republicans want it to be about $8.60 an hour. Independents fall in between, supporting an average minimum wage of about $9.40 an hour. All three groups set their preferred minimum wage higher than the current $7.25, but far below a $15 wage sought by some worker advocates

unfunded?

"Part D is financed through general revenues (74%), beneficiary premiums (13%), and state payments for dual eligibles (13%). Similar to Part B, enrollees with higher incomes pay a larger share of the cost of Part D coverage."

On Monday, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio was confronted by a reporter from the Miami Herald as he was walking to his car on why he hypocritically chose to accept a $10,000 subsidy offered by President Obama’s health reform.

His choreographed answer didn’t satisfy the reporter, who pressed him to explain why he was accepting the subsidy while other influential members of his Republican caucus had denied it on grounds of principle.

In September, Rubio joined Tea Party extremists in a 22-hour filibuster of the budget bill in an attempt to force a vote to defund the Obamacare, setting the stage for the government shutdown (which he supported).

Apparently, although he bashes the law day in and day out, Marco Rubio loves the new benefits of Obamacare offered to him and his family.
