WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Accusing them of involvement in “a widespread conspiracy to save President Obama’s failed health-care program,” Rep. Darrell Issa (R-California) today subpoenaed the approximately seven million Americans who have signed up for Obamacare so far.

Arguing that the impressive enrollment numbers “don’t pass the smell test,” the House Oversight Committee chairman told reporters,“Any rational person would come to the same conclusion that I have: namely, that this is a well-orchestrated conspiracy of seven million people trying to make Obamacare look good.”

The California Republican said that the seven million co-conspirators targeted by his subpoenas would be required to travel to Washington to testify before his committee or risk being found in contempt of Congress.

“If you signed up for Obamacare, you have a lot of explaining to do,” he said.

In announcing the subpoenas, Rep. Issa indicated that his committee could begin grilling the seven million Obamacare enrollees as early as next week.“If my suspicions are correct, this could be bigger than Benghazi,” he said.

I didn't know you could subpoena 7 million people. Frankly, I think this Borowitz report is what doesn't pass the smell test.

Its a joke. Funny thing, I'd bet this is how many view the right in this nation. Just watched the liar in chief spew bs about our new health care law. So good it's been changed countless times to ensue the pain is put off until after the midterms. Laughed when Nancy invoked the founders saying they would be happy with this as we pursue our happiness. Thinking the over bearing taxes and more small businesses that are killed not so much.

Well, "the right" hasn't done much to mitigate this opinion -if in fact 'many' view "the right" this way, it's because "the right" is so often wrong.

Show me a "right wing" politician more interested in recognizing the rights of individuals, than in removing, restricting, or reducing them,(and handing said rights over to corporations) and I'll show you one who MIGHT be able to win back the Presidency.

The hacks "the right" have been fielding, not so much.

Of course not.

Perhaps I'm not using the right wording, on this tablet when you hit the boy to post a reply a keyboard comes up. I'm quite good at technology but this is a joke. My thumb takes up more than half of it and its not easy to use. Ah yes, so I will be 40 soon. Whats that old county song older enough to know better but still too young to care. Blessings!
Hmm, this is the first time I've heard of that, Chris. And it sounds like this "virtual keyboard" must be pretty small, too--I can't believe your hands are THAT big!

The big 4-0, huh? I'll order you a cake decorated with all 40 candles immediately, and a large box of Depends is on the way ;)

Bs. This is one of the reasons hacks like McConnell are far more interested in waging way on people in their own party. I've posted about my friend from Venezuela and his warning of the direction this nation has been moving for some time. Today I learned of a guy in Ca., Igor Birman, and my guess is establishment hacks on the right and left will hate him and his views as well. Don't think he can run for potus as he is from Russia. Another one I hope does well is Matt Bevin as he targets the pos McConnell. I'll say outright here and now if we arrive in 2016 and the choice is a McConnell or a Christie I most likely won't vote.

Yes, its on many tablets and so called smart phones. Wife got a good one that has a real keyboard. I made the mistake of going with an i-phone. Lol I need it. Also I'll say I'm sorry right now for unchristian like words towards Sen. McConnell. Just fired up.

No apology necessary if the shoe fits, CC.

Some of these elder statesmen on both sides need to retire, and let the younger
generation get to work, so that something can finally get done in Washington.

Me neither. But hopefully, we'll have better choices. I'd like to see Gary Johnson or Jill Stein give it another go.

Hobby Lobby has made some very interesting investment choices, to go along with its support and subsidy of China's one-child policy, through purchasing most of HL's products from that country.

http://www.documentcloud.org/documents/109936...

Teva Pharmaceutical Industries makes the Plan B morning-after pill and ParaGard, a copper IUD. Pfizer is the maker of the abortion-inducing drugs Cytotec and Prostin E2.

Hobby Lobby's mutual funds also invest in two health insurance companies that cover surgical abortions, abortion drugs, and emergency contraception in their health care policies....

Yet the company has the unmitigated gall to claim the 'freedom of religion' as a valid reason why it should be exempt from the law.

I really hope the SCOTUS takes the source of HL's profits, and the investments it makes through its mutual funds, into consideration when deciding whether a corporation has the 'religious right' to manage the lives of employees.

The 2013 Barry Goldwater Award winner was Oklahoma State Representative Doug Cox, MD. As a highly regarded member of the Oklahoma State House, Rep. Cox has tirelessly and effectively argued against more than 160 anti-women’s health measures. In addition to his legislative job, Rep. Cox still serves as an emergency room physician, often working nights and weekends in the ER even while the state house is in session. As a physician, Dr. Cox knows and understands the impact anti-women’s health legislation can have on the health and well-being of all Oklahoma women.

goldwater.jpg

Planned Parenthood of Central Oklahoma, which has worked closely with Representative Cox over the years, nominated him for this award, which he received at the 2013 Planned Parenthood National Conference. He delivered a moving and inspirational acceptance speech that showed how deeply he supports women’s health, saying,“I unequivocally believe access to birth control has emancipated women to control their own destiny.”

At his own political risk, Rep. Cox fights against the extreme and out-of-touch anti-women’s health measures being pushed by other members in the state house. It takes a lot of courage to speak out as he does; he truly embodies what it means to act on one’s conscience regardless of what others think. Rep. Cox stands up for Oklahoma women’s access to affordable health care — even as others work to limit access; he’s a true champion for women’s health.

Rep. Cox joins a list of former recipients which includes:
2012 — U.S. Rep. Richard Hanna (New York)
2011 — U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)
2010 — State Sen. Jean Schodorf (Kansas)
2009 — U.S. Rep. Judy Biggert (Illinois)
2008 — U.S. Rep. Mark Kirk (Illinois)
2007 — State Assemblyman Keith Richman (California)
2006 — State Rep. Stan Adelstein (South Dakota)
2005 — U.S. Rep. Sherwood Boehlert (New York)
2004 — former U.S. Rep. Rob Simmons (Connecticut)
2003 — former Lt. Gov. Joy Corning (Iowa)
2002 — U.S. Rep. Steve Horn (California)
2001 — State Sen. Jeff Wentworth (Texas)
2000 — U.S. Rep. Connie Morella (Maryland) and U.S. Sen. John Chafee (Rhode Island - posthumously)
1999 — U.S. Rep. Bill Green (New York)
1998 — Mary Dent Crisp, former chair of the National Republican Coalition for Choice
1997 — former U.S. Sen. Barry Goldwater (Arizona) and his wife Susan
1996 — U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe (Maine) and U.S. Rep. Nancy Johnson (Connecticut)
1995 — former Gov. Jock McKernan (Maine)
.

.
Dr. Cox pointed out that teen pregnancy is still an issue in Oklahoma. The state’s teen birth rate is the second highest in the nation, and more than 2,000 girls under the age of 17 gave birth in 2010. The state lawmaker noted that if the state prevents teens from being able to buy emergency contraception without a prescription, girls will lose out on important resources to control their sexual health.

“This bill is prejudiced,” Cox said.“It’s prejudiced against women. A 14-year-old boy can go to the truck stop and buy all the condoms he wants. He can control his destiny. This bill takes the ability to control their destiny away from women. But that’s what we do in the Republican Party these days.”

Cox was the most recent recipient of Planned Parenthood’s Barry Goldwater Award, an annual recognition of an outstanding public official in the Republican Party who has demonstrated a commitment to women’s health issues. The national organization noted that he has argued against over 160 anti-choice bills during his time in the state legislature.

the Borowitzy report:
More than 7 million people have signed up for Obamacare and that means there are 17 million more people who have health insurance, according to former President Clinton.
