These guys are the limit. Violators should be prosecuted as should those who try to conceal their true intentions.

If Beto wants to get re elected he had better introduce a bill in congress on the de criminalization and legalization of marijuana. I'm a voter I will vote for the person that favors my views. I don't care if this person is Charlie Manson.. I know Beto smokes weed but he needs to spread the word He needs to go speak to a local NORML group and have the news media there Now if these illegals would keep their phuckin @ss in their own country this would not be a expensive tax payer issue. Beto should have told these border network human rights knuckleheads to go to Mexico and tell all these wan to be illegal law breakers to keep their A$$ home if they know what's good for them. END of STORY

Let me tell you one thing. Given a choice between a Real Republican and a Democrat who talks like a Republican, Republicans will pick the Real Republican every damn time. And your base Democrats will stay at home. I have statistics to prove that.

Nothing Beto can do about the law himself. We're all in for one more screwing with this health care deal later this year.

Bull crap when he gets back to D.C. He can go talk to his boss John Bonehead the leader of the House of Reps. And say Johnny the natives back in my home state of Texas are getting restless over this Obama care cause they have to pay up to 5 bucks a month with 8 kids for health care. They think it should be free for all in El Paso plus all the illegals in my 16 th district. This is a election year if you know what I mean

I thought you only cared about the legalized weed, not the health care deal.

Why is it that our elected govt officials (O'Rourke) don't do anything to revise or develop policies until someone has been violated or killed? What exactly do they do meantime? Typical "el chuco" mentality even for the whites in this town. Grow up already O'Rourke , and do your own thing. Quit hiding under Escobars skirts, and listen to the people who voted for you. WE the people elect you, not your kiss azz counter politicians. How dare you have donated 500.00 to that witch. I held higher respect for you, now I'm wondering who the republican can be to take your place. Always waiting for the crisis to happen before anyone in this town gets off their butt. That's why Escobar's is so big.

HealthCare.gov will be out of service for two and a half days beginning on Feb. 15 — the last day people can sign up to obtain coverage that begins on March 1.

The Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services announced in a blog post on Monday that the ObamaCare website would be lacking some enrollment functionalities so the Social Security Administration can conduct its annual systems maintenance activities.

The site will be out of order from 3 p.m. on Feb. 15 until 5 a.m. on Tuesday — a period that coincides with the long holiday weekend.

I went to see him at one of these open forums with a serious health care issue and he came through for me. I was looking for something that would give me less tingle in my dingle and he suggested a special tea that's all herbal - it did the trick and I'm back in business. So he' knows what the hell he's doing, just give him some time, that's all.

Well of course I'm most concerned with Obamas health care. What I'm concerned about is if it covers medicine prescriptions. You see I have a prescription ( from a real doctor) for medical marijuana and want to know if its covered. I tried to go through all 17 hundred pages of it maybe I missed it. Do you or does anyone know if its covered ?

You're damn straight it is! It's an herbal medicine, right? And a licensed physician prescribed it, not some Internet quack? Then you are entitled to it under the law and don't let some damn fool hinder you from getting it. I can't vouch for the quality you'll receive but hopefully it will be primo bud.

You have to get your marijuana prescription filled at a dispensary and their weed is as a rule pretty good chit. I just want to know for sure if its covered by Obama care cause I going to Oregon next month to pick up my prescription.
