GOP blames Obama for obstruction on Surgeon General
Mon Oct 20, 2014
In reply to: Eileen-2917998 #4.3 A Hold, well you can't clear that. We learned that when Janet Yellen nominee for the Chair of the Federal Reserve and Rand Paul put a hold on her. There was a cloture vote, 59 votes for cloture (not 60) but that's enough under the new rules. The 56 votes and she was …
Obama to Tap Ron Klain as Ebola 'Czar'
Fri Oct 17, 2014
In reply to: MSNBCcensoredmyname #1.4 Because since Nov 2013 (when Reid killed the filibuster for appointees) to confirm a Surgeon General requires 51 votes in the Senate. The 53 Democrats and 2 Independents who caucus with them can't possibly get 51 votes without the "teabaggers"... right? 53 < …
A Surgeon General nominee 'tied up in politics'
Wed Oct 15, 2014
SO how do we fix this? How do we get a vote? Well, you clear the hold, with a separate vote. After November 2013, when the filibuster was nuked for appointees, this takes 51 votes to clear the hold. Then 51 votes to approve. There are 53 Democrats in the Senate, and 2 Independents who caucus with th …
President Obama on ISIS: 'We Don't Have a Strategy Yet'
Thu Aug 28, 2014
In reply to: D-1129384 #138 Do I know what to do? Not really. But if the US Military, Military Intelligence, the State Department, AND the CIA had been briefing me on this for OVER A YEAR ... I think I'd have a strategy or two worked out. But that's just me... a regular guy; we can't expect th …
Adviser's past remarks could give Obamacare a headache
Fri Jul 25, 2014
In reply to: Carl Lafoon #5.5 Yep, either you set up a STATE exchange, or the Feds set up a FEDERAL exchange. ONLY STATE exchanges qualify for subsides, by the clear text of the law. Therefore Republicans are stupid thinking they don't apply to the FEDERAL exchanges, which are NOT STATE exchanges... …
Fate for Most Kids Who Cross the Border? Staying in the U.S.
Mon Jul 14, 2014
In reply to: Dr veruju #51 Well of course. http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-deport-children-20140706-story.html Last year we had 20,805 unaccompanied children, we deported 1,669 as the most we could possibly manage. This year we're already over 65,000 inbound added to the queue. If yo …
Will wealth backfire for 2016 GOP candidates?
Tue Jun 24, 2014
In reply to: Johnny B-1876520 #20 Ah yes, they were broke, why they could barely cover the $255,000 and the $800,000 for the down payments on the two homes they were purchasing when they left office. I mean can you IMAGINE being so poor you could barely spare a million dollars? That is flat br …
Man charged with threatening Speaker John Boehner
Fri May 9, 2014
"Give me money or I'll kill you" not a new premise, but some of the comments are odd. Liberals here, is a mugger a good person, or a bad person? If a bad person, why? Isn't "Give me money or I'll kill you" the general thrust of the argument here?
Issa embraces McCarthy-era tactics
Thu Apr 10, 2014
In reply to: oncearepublican #1 Exactly, I mean McCarthy tired to use the power of the government to attack private citizens for their personal views, DESPICABLE. And this case, how DARE THEY not allow the IRS to use the power of the Government to attack people for their personal view, that is neces …
GOP calls Paycheck Fairness Act 'desperate'
Tue Apr 8, 2014
In reply to: Baglebite88 #1.1 SO they use statistics across ALL jobs, and you buy it? Ok so we can fix this in ONLY one of two ways. 1) ALL jobs must pay the same... regardless of the job or hours worked. 2) ALL jobs must be gender neutral, with people FORCED to do those jobs to maintai …
