Why am I not surprised that the first Congressman ever convicted of coke possession is a fleabagger?
The President ought to snub any event hosted by Gov. Corbett until the guv endorses Medicaid expansion in PA. The Guv is hurting our state by not accepting free funding for health care aiding several hundred thousands of poor Pennsylvanians.
Governor Corbett deserves to be snubbed until he endorses Medicaid expansion in PA. It's free money for the state and the guv is turning it down. No wonder PA now ranks 47th in job growth, down over 20 notches since the guv took over 3 years ago.
On November 1, a reduction in food stamp (SNAP) benefits went into effect across the country, affecting millions of Americans who struggle with hunger, food insecurity and poverty. The reduction in benefits translates into a loss of $36 per month for a family of four a substantial amount for those who rely on food assistance to put food on the table. The loss will hurt the most vulnerable in our community. 76% of SNAP households included a child, an elderly person, or a disabled person. These vulnerable households receive 83% of all SNAP benefits.
The President ought to ignore any event hosted by Gov Corbett until the Gov endorses Medicaid expansion in PA.
John Hanger advocates the eventual legalization of marijuana, a position that won him the endorsement Wednesday of the National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws.
Mr. Hanger, 1 of 8 candidates for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination, has proposed allowing doctors to prescribe medical use of marijuana, decriminalizing charges against possession of the drug, and if these measures work, full legalization in 2017.
A spokesman for NORML said Mr. Hanger's 3-stage plan is "a smarter approach" and will save millions of dollars in enforcement costs, provide prescribed treatment for sick patients, and generate new taxes. Gov. Tom Corbett said he will veto any pro-pot legislation. #$%$ is already legal in 20 states. Push for marijuana law relaxation has been getting louder in the Keystone State and across the nation. In PA polls, support for legalization grew from 22% in 2006 to 38% in May.
Sen. Dayton Leach (D-Montgomery) introduced SB 770 calling for legalization, regulation, and taxation of marijuana. Leach's bill is supported by the NAACP and the police organization, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition.
Landslide in Fairfax County. Those things happen when the Rs run on transvaginal ultrasound and all the votes are actually counted.
"Conservative" used to mean that a politician stood for balanced budgets, conservation of natural resources, and a cautious approach to international relations. Righwing talk radio has so corrupted our lexicon that politicians claiming to be conservative don't uphold ANY of their traditional values.
Ryan make Sara Palin look like a Phi Beta Kappa in comparison. Even trying to figure out what he says is quite a challenge. Is there a single piece of important legislation bearing his name for all the years he's occupied a House seat?
The market Bush inherited from Clinton topped at around 14K but ended at 7.7K.
Which is better, a 14K start or a 7.7K finish?
Borrow and spend failed in the Reagan years, and the Bush Rethugs are still too stupid to realize the folly of such policy hijinks. Stupidest politicians in the world!
Remember when GWB was lying about WMD and #$%$ Cheney claimed on national TeeVee that the war in Iraq would pay for itself? Remember when Bush inherited a budget surplus from Clinton and the Republicans in Congress gave tax cuts to the richest 1% that converted the surplus to a long string of deficits? These guys fit my definition of RODENTS.
Nobody understands your definition!
If I were AA, the Koch brothers would need to pay me more money than they have to support the klanbaggers, who hate democracy, equality of opportunity, and a tax system that combats the problem of inherited wealth.
President Obama's victory margins were 11+ million in 2008 and by 5+ million in 2012. If all the votes had been counted the margins would have been considerably greater.
Mitt Romney was almost as good a bamboozler as the Great Prevaricator. Unfortunately, Mitt got caught telling the truth about how he was confident of getting 47% of the votes and needed only to convince 4% more for an election victory. OTOH Reagan lied so routinely that the press could never catch him telling the truth about anything.
