Rick Scott´s Medicaid Decision is
a Big Win for the White House

National Journal, by Margot Sanger-Katz

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 2/21/2013 7:30:49 AM

Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s decision to expand his state’s Medicaid program is a huge political and practical win for President Obama´s White House. Scott, who rose to the governor’s mansion on an anti-Obamacare campaign, also led the legal effort to overturn the president’s health reform law last year. Without the multistate lawsuit led by Florida, expanding state Medicaid programs would never have been optional. Now, he is one of seven Republican governors who have endorsed expanding their programs. After the Supreme Court ruled that states

May I have my vote back? I´d rather vote for Kendrick Meeks; at least he was up front about fiscally beating Floridians about the head.

Put a fork in Rick Scott - he´s done. What a fool to play to the liberal newspapers who have been calling for this. Yes, one more bit of bipartisanship which means give Democrats what they want. I agree with poster #1 - I want my vote back too! Now the liberal press will try to tell us that we need Charlie Crist back. However, his beard / wife´s rejection of her own children will cost him. Hopefully someone challenges Scott in a primary.

Annnnnd this is why Republicans will continue to lose. Why would a citizen who is genuinely concerned about the spending, the government overreach even bother to vote for a Republican again? Why waste the vote? Jan Brewer, Susanna Martiniez,Kasich and Scott care more about Obamaphone voters than the out or control Obamacare leviathan. What is the use?

Another Florida "weepublican" attempts to please those who hate him, and will end up only making sure no one who used to like him still does. This is Rove Bush redux - and Scott is now without a consitutiency and is done, but the real damage to the nation is a win for Obama Care.

What´s the word? Effyew?

Barky sends you 10 billion.

The program only costs 5 billion.

You have 5 billion left over to play with.

What´s 66 billion dollars over 10 years when we have already spent over 17 trillion dollars we don´t have? What´s the big deal? We can spend unlimited amounts of money cause we never intend to pay it back.

BETRAYED !
John Roberts should have given citizens a fighting chance to get OUT of Obamacare.
There are more leeches than there are responsible people voting, so Robert´s "cure" of fixing this at the ballot box does not work.
Now I am betrayed again by a Governor I voted for, who ran on a promise of rejecting Obamacare.
All that´s left is for millions of us to surround the Capitol and keep the Congress inside until they pass a bill repealing Obamacare in totality.
As for Governor, Allen West would be great.

When will we learn that we should never put our faith (or vote) in a known crook? Rick Scott is a known crook, a dishonest person, and a man without integrity. Some of us knew that long ago.

It is a pleasure to say "I told you so".

I voted for Bill McCollum in the primary. He was our Attorney General who master minded the 26 state challenge to Obamacare that our present Attorney General, Pam Bondi is taking credit for.

It was well known here in Fl. that Scott had headed a firm that defrauded Medicare for millions. But Scott looked good and McCollum is rather nerdy looking. Right Floridians?

Democrats are darkness. Only the Republican Party (or a replacement)can provide light. So the fight is internal to the Republican Party to rid ourselves of RINO leadership. I feel like the Scotts in Braveheart ready to fight while their own nobles are selling them out to Longshanks.

Sorry, Rev, but Christianity isn´t
just about being nice to people
Telegraph U.K., by Tim Stanley    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 4/16/2014 7:48:54 AM     Post Reply
Here’s a thought for the day: Most people are “nice”, but Christians should be nice with a purpose. I am not a fan of the sitcom Rev, which depicts a vicar trying to be kind to his parishioners – with hilarious consequences. His congregation is small, full of delinquents, and the eponymous clergymen is often driven to drink by their unholy antics. Justin Welby disagrees with the show’s depiction of Anglican life because he notes that many churches are growing. The Rev’s, by contrast, conforms to a self-lacerating vision of Christianity as nice but niche. But self-laceration is the stock-in-trade of the

   

 



 
Louisiana GOP: Mary Landrieu ad fakery
sign of deeper problem with campaign
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 4/16/2014 7:35:16 AM     Post Reply
Louisiana Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu, in a neck-and-neck race for re-election, is taking a lot of criticism over a new ad -- her first this season -- depicting herself taking on "Washington" to protect the interests of Louisiana´s oil and gas industry. What Landrieu did to invite the ridicule was to re-create for her ad producers her own performance in a Senate hearing -- complete with set, supporting cast, fake nameplate, and even phony news chyrons -- to show her standing up for her state. The unspoken message of the ad -- something Landrieu could never say directly -- is that

When recently asked what she was most proud of from her time as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton replied that the office was like a “relay race.” “When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton,” she said. Mrs. Clinton was unable to cite any specific achievement, though she did make the rather dubious claim that “I think we really restored American leadership in the best sense.” Even some of her most ardent admirers couldn’t figure out a good answer to the question about her greatest achievement, during a discussion on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” As Ed

Bloomberg to spend $50M on new gun

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg will spend $50 million this year to build a nationwide grassroots network on gun control in a direct challenge to the National Rifle Association, The New York Times reported. The new lobbying group, called Everytown for Gun Safety, will encompass other gun control groups funded by Bloomberg, Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, the report said. Bloomberg told the Times the strategy will focus on expanding the background check system for gun buyers at the state and national levels. He made nearly $14 million in federal campaign contributions for

Obama’s Whistling Lap Dog

Last week, the president’s lap dog blew his dog whistle. In case you didn’t know, in politics a “dog whistle” is coded language that has a superficial meaning for everybody, but also a special resonance for certain constituencies. Using dog whistles lets politicians deny they meant to say anything nasty, bigoted, or controversial. Speaking to the National Action Network the day after a testy but racially irrelevant exchange with Republican members of a House panel, Attorney General Eric Holder said, “The last five years have been defined . . . by lasting reforms even in the face of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly,

Howard Dean: Dems would win back House

Former Vermont governor Howard Dean (D) says Democrats would be in strong position to win back the U.S. House majority this year if not for the troubled rollout of the federal health-care Web site last fall. "I think we would have won the House had the Web site not collapsed," Dean, a former Democratic National Committee chairman, said in a brief interview with Post Politics Tuesday evening. He called the battle for the House a "struggle" for Democrats but predicted the party would retain control of the Senate. The flawed rollout of the health-care Web site "was a problem because we had

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio -- A man is facing charges after deputies say he was flying a video camera-equipped drone that hindered the landing of a medical helicopter at an accident scene. Kele Stanley, of Springfield, said he´s been unfairly charged and would have landed it immediately if he knew the medical helicopter was en route. "I´m not an idiot," he said. The hobbyist was flying the $4,000 drone over a crash scene on Saturday morning to shoot photos and video. Authorities said both fire officials and a Clark County sheriff´s deputy told Stanley to stop flying his remote-controlled

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no."

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
