    Oh puleaze.

    How many things have ANY Republicans voted along with the Democrats since 1/20/13?

    You seem to forget a simply fact. When laws are passed it is CONGRESS that passes the bills and send them to the President for signature.

    This finger pointing is nonsense.

    At this point, if ANY Republican stands on their own principles the tea party goes after them.

    You’ve misunderstood my points.

    From my perspective, a HUGE portion of the bill was simply giveaways to various industries such as the insurers and the pharmaceutical companies. Apparently the medical device companies didn’t come up with enough $$$$.

    That the insurers are now dumping people to force them into ACA is only further proof of that giveaway. If those policies were more profitable for them than ACA, you can bet that they wouldn’t be doing it.

    OldFatGuy,

    Big picture. Folks such as Baucus wouldn’t have voted for the bill had those amendments been taken away. I’m trying to remember, but wasn’t there some Senator from South Dakota, Nebraska, whatever who got special concessions for his state in all of this?

    No matter which way you slice it and dice it, those amendments were Republican proposed ideas that made it into the bill.

    Um, you might want to check into things a bit more before you go making statements that contradict the reality of what happened.

    Dear old Democrat Max Baucus allowed the Senate Republicans to propose over 600 amendments to ACA. The idea being that this would get some Republican support.

    There were 161 Republican amendments in the final bill. Despite all of those additions, not one Republican voted for the bill.

    You know your nonsense is getting more than a little stale.

    This is fascinating from a different perspective.

    Right after the Supreme Court made their decision, the local, very conservative newspaper, ran a story about how hospital administrators were jumping for joy about the new ruling. There reason was pure money. With ACA the law of the land, they’d have fewer uninsured coming to their emergency rooms and getting “free” care.

    This decision seems to be a money loser for the hospitals that go down this road.

    I think that I’m going to start “investing” my money by putting it under my mattress.

    Why isn’t he in Iran getting their help?

    He’s a lot closer to them these days.

    I stand by my Bush remarks.

    Has what Obama done with drones been inexcusable? Probably. Raised to the level of a “crime”? Hardly.

    I’m tired of hearing about Obama’s “crimes”.

    As far as the McCain comment. That’s why I drew a line between the two comments as opposed to posting two different items.

    After living with W for eight years, your tripe about Obama and his “crimes” ring more than a little hollow.

    I could be mistaken, but isn’t this the same John McCain who wanted a Benghazi briefing and then didn’t show up?

    - The assassinations of foreign heads of state was stopped by Congress.
    - J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI.

    One can only hope.

    Time for Congress to start governing and start passing some restrictions.

    The President/CIA/NSA have shown that they aren’t going to regulate themselves.

  • Once “No one is above the law.” got nuked in about his first week in office, it was all downhill from there. I think that he, or Eric Holder, repeated the line within the last month.

    Then we get the “Grand Bargain.”

  • Newcarguy,

    Sorry about the snark.

  • Spying – Just what W did so how is it any “worser”.

    Kill three civilians. Let’s see. Reasonable estimates are that the phony war in Iraq was responsible for the death of over 100,000 civilians.

    While I don’t like the drone issue and I don’t like the spying issue, I’d say that Obama has a long way to go before he catches up with W, and the trolls that try to say that he wasn’t all that bad.

  • Yeah, it’s too bad that folks such as yourself only have to put up with him until January 20, 2017.

  • I think that we’ve already had that. Senator Obama and President Obama both have said, “No one is above the law.” W and Cheney are still walking around.

  • Hmm. It isn’t as if we’ve never had the CIA and the WH pointing fingers at each other in the past before. Never had Congress and the CIA pointing fingers at each other before.

    More to the point.

    Who gives a rip about who knew what. If Congress has a problem with the spying that’s going on (which they should have), isn’t it THEIR job to pass a law saying that all of this nonsense is against the law?

    I seem to remember them doing that, can’t remember the law, when Congress “discovered” that presidents had been authorizing the CIA to assassinate leaders of other countries. Isn’t that why Congress has to oversee “special” CIA operations?

    So what did CONGRESS know and when did THEY know it?

    Agreed.

    I was, and am still, appalled with Pelosi and “impeachment is off the table”. It gave Cheney and W free reign to continue with their crimes. And then we got President “no one is above the law” Obama, who not only gave W & Cheney a Get Out of Jail Free card, but may have allowed all of their actions to become precedent for future presidents.

    What’s the solution? John Lennon. “You say you want a revolution.” I’m 65. At this point, I’m cynical enough that I believe that the country needs a MAJOR upheaval to get out of the mess that we’re in. We can only elect token Elizabeth Warrens to make us feel good.

    That time passed a LONG time ago.

    There’s nothing in the current, or future, committee hearings to suggest that anything will come out of this.

    Transparency? Puleaz. It was NEVER about transparency and it isn’t about transparency now.

    How about the transparency of the committees (Issa primarily)? It has been shown that he has doctored evidence by selectively asking for information and further doctoring evidence by selectively presenting edited information.

    Laughable.

    We’re in total agreement.

  • Let’s see. After the Republican disaster AKA the Obamacare Shutdown, how does the Republican party get back in the good graces of Wall Street?

    Take away ALL regulation!

    Even Alan Greenspan, who was part of Ayn Rand’s inner circle, had to admit that his hands off, self-regulation, of Wall Street was a disaster.
