  • This Tea-Drooling moron wants federal money.... just DON'T CALL IT OBAMACARE, whatever you do. A dramatic showdown over health care funding that’s been unfolding in Florida over the past several weeks reveals the lengths that Republican leaders are willing to go in their quest to remain publicly opposed to Obamacare.

    Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R), one of the staunchest opponents of the health care reform law, refuses to accept federal funds to implement Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act, which would extend coverage to about 800,000 low-income people in the state. At the same time, however, Scott wants the Obama administration to give him federal funds to help implement a specific Medicaid pilot program. Ultimately, Scott is demanding money from the government that doesn’t appear to be linked to Obamacare — and he’s willing to go to great lengths to get it.
    Scott wants the government to give Florida about $1 billion in federal funds for a Medicaid pilot project — called the Low-Income Pool, or LIP — that helps support hospitals that serve low-income and uninsured patients. LIP is a program that was initiated under the Jeb Bush administration to address hospitals’ budget shortfalls from providing too much uncompensated care to uninsured people who can’t pay their bills.

  • WASHINGTON -- Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) has seen a significant drop in his approval rating since signing a widely criticized "religious freedom" law, with one longtime political observer in the state saying the fall is historic for a governor.

    "I've been covering Indiana politics for three decades, and I don't recall a sitting governor experiencing that kind of decline over this short period of time like we've seen here," said Brian Howey, publisher of the widely respected site Howey Politics Indiana.

    A new HPI poll by pollster Christine Matthews of Bellwether Research shows Pence's favorable rating at just 35 percent, and his unfavorable rating at 38 percent.

    In 2013, an HPI poll found Pence faring much better than he is now. Then, he was at a 52 percent favorable rating and a 20 percent unfavorable rating.

    Fifty-nine percent of respondents in the new poll said the "religious freedom" law was unnecessary, compared to just 30 percent who thought it was needed. Another 50 percent said the controversy surrounding the law will have a "negative impact on the economy" even after it "isn't front page news."

  • The GOP led House gave a tax break to the top .2% valued at 269 Billion. And it was simply added to the deficit. But there is no way to fix our infrastructure, pay for education or increase benefits to Medicare or SS.

    So droolers, how did you get so stupid?

    HappyDunce: The fresh water is pumped into the delta to keep the salt water of the Pacific OUT of the farmlands. Without the fresh water, salt water would kill off tens of thousands of acres of farmland. It really has NOTHING to do with a small fish.

    That is Fox News Liars propaganda.

  • Life is getting much worse for the Deniers. A coal mining company, West Virginia, and 15 other states argued Thursday that a federal court should stop the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s proposed Clean Power Plan rule, but the three presiding judges did not seem convinced.

    If the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia finds in favor of the petitioners, it would be a first for the rule-making process. The court has never issued a writ against a rule that has not been finalized.

    “Do you know of any case when we have stopped rule-making? Why would we do that?” Judge Thomas Griffith asked Elbert Lin, an attorney for West Virginia, at the outset of the proceedings.

    The Clean Power Plan would require states to limit carbon emissions from the utility sector — currently the source of more than 30 percent of the U.S.’s carbon emissions.

    Yes, idiot. I fully trust NASA's measurements. Your evidence is non existent, and was never published. Only on Fox was the data "inaccurate".

    Or do you have ANYTHING to refute the data posted by NASA. If so, let's see it.

    Slow down.... you're running away.

    The 2 billion is, sadly, what is needed for her to compete to win. I want to eliminate all that money. Total maximum of 1 million dollars on any campaign.

  • Get money OUT of politics. A Fox News Liar asserted that union political contributions “balance” contributions from big corporations and the wealthy, so there's no reason to be concerned about the latter.
    Here are the facts: In the 2012 elections, the Koch brothers’ political network alone spent more than $400 million -- more than twice the political spending of the ten largest labor unions put together. In 2012, corporations spent $56 on lobbying for every dollar spent by labor unions. Not even Democratic candidates rely nearly as much on labor unions to finance their campaigns as they do on wealthy individuals. In 2012, the richest .01 percent of households gave Democratic candidates more than four times what unions contributed to Democratic campaigns.
    There's no longer any balance in American politics. American workers no longer have a voice. Countervailing power has been eliminated. Money coming from big corporations and billionaires is drowning our democracy. The very first step for reform is to get big money out of politics.

    All temperatures were taken by NASA. I trust in their ability to report accurate temperatures.

    Now, please provide a science based article that debunks global warming. Remember, your kind have not produced a single article. And for every crackpot article from fake scientists, there are a thousand articles which describe global warming.

  • ... and of course the Tea-Droolers genuflect and give them what they want. Happy Tax Day, little people! Our Republican overlords in the United States Congress would like you to know they don't particularly give a *&#@# what you think, no matter what their current crop of 2016 candidates says.

    Because you, little peons, did not elect them, and they seek to reward those who elect.

    To prove their fealty to the Houses of Walton, Koch, DeVos, Adelson and more, there is a vote planned today in the House to repeal the estate tax law and create a permanent aristocracy. Because what says populism more than repealing a section of the tax code that benefits a teeny, tiny slice of America that holds more wealth than the bottom 50 percent combined?
