<quoted text>Midol was one of the first effects of an ObamaCare tax on the middle class.
Pre-ObamaCare, Midol (along with Tylenol, etc) was covered by an employee's Flexible Spending Plan. With ObamaCare, OTC drugs no longer covered. And the family plan went from $5K allowed per year to only $2500 allowed per year.
And what exactly have the Republicans ever done about any kind of healthcare or actual help for any fellow Americans? I suspect In order to start they would first have to remove their collective heads from the butts of the filthy rich, they are fully aware that without their support they would be only a bad memory. Soon Only the afflicted aka[BAGGERS] will remain.

BREAKING: CBS News Reporter Quits Network Over Frustration of ‘Liberal Bias’
64,516 Shares By Bubba Atkinson 17 hours ago

Oh boy! This should get people talking! Investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson, known for her work investigating the Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal and Benghazi, has chosen to leave CBS:
But why would she ever choose to leave such a respected a mainstream media outlet like CBS? Via Politico:
Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network’s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network’s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air.
At the same time, Attkisson’s own reporting on the Obama administration, which some staffers characterized as agenda-driven, had led network executives to doubt the impartiality of her reporting. She is currently at work on a book — tentatively titled “Stonewalled: One Reporter’s Fight for Truth in Obama’s Washington”— which addresses the challenges of reporting critically on the Obama administration.
So Attkisson was hired to go out and find the truth, but the truth doesn’t align with what CBS wants because they have a different agenda? On top of that, CBS is getting pushed around by dollar signs from external corporate influences? That’s a truly embarrassing business model for a news outlet.
You may or may not agree with her, but kudos to her for standing up for what she believes in. COMMENT below: Where do IJReview readers want to see her go?
PDupont and others like him would benefit from a reality check by reading Ms. Attkisson's book, "Stonewalled: One Reporter’s Fight for Truth in Obama’s Washington”. She has first-hand knowledge that reporting critically on the Obama administration is a challenge among true journalists.

The truth is, if the media were rightwing conservatives who protected their chosen one in the White House, he would have a problem with that. If the IRS were bullies under a rightwing conservative president targeting liberal "enemies", he'd have a problem with that too.

He just can't see past his own bias.

Don't know if I would go so far as Lt. Col. Peters to use military attacks on the media - and since you didn't post a source, I have no idea if what he said was taken out of context - but I do think the liberal media should be put on the hot seat and investigated as another appendage in aiding and abetting the corruption in this administration charged with shirking their responsibilities to protect the people, not protecting those who hold power over the people. Even if he is their little darling.
Lt. Col. Peters warned back in February on the Kelly File that Putin would do exactly what he's doing in the Ukraine after the Olympics and said "mark my words".
Obama read about the Russian invasion in the newspapers.
So why do you even entertain the idea that this president has any idea in the world what to do when it comes to foreign policy? Very few do. Lt. Col. Peters was right about that too.
what corruption is that? please be specific...

what should Obama have done to prevent it? it seems the Crimean people are pretty pro russian. how come other world leaders didn't see it coming or prevent it?(in fact, every intelligent person on the planet always knew that Russia would want to re-eestablish power over its former satellites...

well, if she as attempting to report on the Benghazi scandal, her editors most likely had a problem with her non-factual reporting, as there was no scandal, than her bias....

it is fun when you look at stories with a factual bias. the facts show she was just chasing lies. it would seem she just sucked as an investigative reporter.

If a far rightwing conservative president lied about a video being behind a terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11 only to find out he knew full-well it was, in fact, a terrorist attack on the night it happened but lied to win an election, you wouldn't find that corrupt?

If a far rightwing conservative president was behind a powerful organization such as the IRS deliberately treating liberal individuals and groups as the "enemy" by harassing them and denying them in disproportionate numbers the same rights as conservative groups, and the head of the IRS under that rightwing conservative president who clearly considered liberals as the "enemy" took the Fifth under oath - not once, but twice - you wouldn't find that corrupt?

If a far rightwing conservative president pushed his own unpopular health care reform on the people with a strictly Republican vote and lied to get it passed - misleading the people over and over and over again - about something as important as keeping their health insurance and their doctors, you wouldn't find that corrupt?

If a far rightwing president read about scandals involving his own administration in the newspapers feigning outrage and promising to get to the bottom of it and, with the help of a far rightwing liberal media sweeping them under the rug, declared they were all "phony" with no "there" there, you wouldn't find that corrupt?

Is that specific enough?

Her editors most likely had a problem with her not helping them sweep the ongoing scandals in this administration under the rug but, instead, doing her job.

The liberal media deliberately squashed Hillary Clinton in favor of Obama, their chosen candidate, who was a cool, celebrity-like, black guy without any experience leading or governing anything to become the president of our nation, and they have been protecting him and his lies ever since.

If you think a far rightwing conservative president would have come out of even one of those scandals as squeaky clean as this one, you have serious reality problems.
