So we can get Congress together to agree on a health care program for Senators, House Reps,....and dogs. And if you're lucky enough to live near Canada, you can "hustle over the boarder" for the same drugs, just cheaper.

Ponderous....very Ponderous.

Well at least there's a repub effort that allows the State to force a Dr. to perform unnecessary intrusive medical procedures on a person...regardless if the neither the Dr. or patient requested it.

And guess who has to pay for it. Not the State, but the patient who didn't request the procedure.

What a wacky State of affairs.

I agree with Rush that she's a slut. But calling her a dog is uncalled for.

Recently Republicans in the Senate voted against giving veterans more benefits! That is a pure disgrace to the honorable men and women who served to protect our country! I am sure when it reaches the the House of Representatives, the Republicans will do the same, including Walter B Jones of NC 3rd Congressional District! Jones has consistently voted for the military industrial complex to get his rich, elitists buddies richer, including Art Pope! We have a Marine Seargent veteran of 5 years who is for the armed services and all veterans. That man is Democratic candidate Erik Anderson! He will help all, including the middle class and poor, not just a select few! Go to www.electerikanderson.com and check him out and support him!

I apologize for my previous remarks. I was angry with the Senators who voted down adding health benefits for veterans and their families and Rep Walter Jones supports the veterans and their families. Please forgive my error.
