Over $460K in federal subsidies for Joni Ernst's family!
Farmers should raise corn on their own dime, not the taxpayers'. Corn production is very profitable nowadays.
Not that facts matter to Dr. Stone. The doofus has been posting same outdated stuff on this board for over a year. Yahoo should ban him and his other names!
Can you tell me one idea she advocated that will make life better for all Americans?
Not a chance - make the cheaters forfeit a first round draft choice and hope they lose in the Super Bowl.
Here's a short list of ideas the Republicans were unable to applaud at last night's SOTU:
* An improving economy
* A soaring stock market
* Americans getting health insurance
* Mention of "solar power"
* Tax cuts for working families
* Affordable childcare
* Tax cuts for families with children
* Equal pay for women
" "America has put more people back to work than Europe, Japan, and all advanced economies combined."
* A "free and open internet"
* Rewarding companies that "invest in America"
* "Working Americans"
* A resolution for the use of the force against ISIL
"Trying something new" with Cuba
* Acknowledging that climate change exists
* Prohibiting Torture
* Not persecuting "people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender."
* Closing Gitmo
* Making "voting easier for every single American"
Why are these programs only controversial when Democrats propose them?
The twenty-two corporations that gave the Republican Governors Public Policy Committee $250,000 or more were awarded the title of “statesmen.” This group included Aetna, Coca-Cola, ExxonMobil, Microsoft, Motorola, Pfizer, Pike Electric, Range Resources, Reynolds American, Sanofi, United Health Group, USAA, Walmart, WellCare Health Plans and WellPoint.
Another thirty-eight corporations chipped in $100,000, which earned them “cabinet” status. This group included Aflac, Allegiant Air, Allergan, Apollo Group, Babcock & Wilcox, Citigroup, Comcast, Duke Energy, Express Scripts, Gtech, Healthways, Hewlett-Packard, Johnson Controls, Marathon Oil, Maximus, Novartis Pharmaceuticals, Shell Oil, US Cellular, Verizon and Walgreens.
Thirty-nine corporations contributed a modest $50,000 to become members of the “board,” among them 3M, Accenture, Astellas Pharma, Best Buy, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Cisco, Diageo, General Motors, Target, Teva Pharmaceuticals, TransCanada, Union Pacific and Unisys.
As it turns out, owners of TIAA-CREF mutual funds are invested in every single one of the generous and politically active corporations listed above. This means they are underwriting a corporate consortium that backs Republican gubernatorial campaigns across the United States.
Chicken soup is the main dish and tapioca pudding for dessert.
Even Faux News has to face facts occasionally.
Self-described terrorism expert Steve Emerson claimed on Fox that parts of Europe, including the entire English city of Birmingham, were totally Muslim areas where non-Muslims do not go. Emerson was forced to apologize, but the claim about so-called "no-go zones" was repeated by other Fox guests and anchors.
On Saturday, according to a CNN Money tally, Fox News took time out of four broadcasts to apologize for reports on Muslims.
The President's approval rating is at 50% and rising. GOP Birthers and 'Baggers are still mumbling incoherent stuff about impeachment instead of making tax code fairer for folks like you and me.
Rebels in Yemen are just a random bunch of 'lone wolves'... probably Tea Party members... with deep tans.
Never thought I would see the day when Faux News actually apologizes for broadcasting RW propaganda. Their lies on behalf of the Republican Party will continue, tho.
You expect RWNJ to care about a pipeline leaking into somebody else's back yard in Nebraska or Arkansas?
Their slogan is "Drill, baby, drill!"
It's interesting that the RWNJs keep bytching all the time, even in times of a Democratic President who offers no good reason for disagreeing with his policies.
