Another Voice

January 16, 2013

Not everyone thinks it will bankrupt their states Tom..looky here...even Gov Brewer wants to expand medicaid...going on to say it is the right and moral thing to do..

"Obama's healthcare law allows states to decide whether they will expand Medicaid, the state-federal program for the elderly, disabled and low-income families with children.

Brewer is the latest of few fellow Republicans who have opted to do so, joining New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez and Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval."

As for the letters sent to the White House that have gone unanswered,did you not ask him what they pertained to? I find it very disturbing that a representative would go out of his way to make the President look as if he is not trying to work with Congress. He did not say what the letters pertained to or if they warranted a reply.

Not a good sign of someone who is truly willing to put country above politics.

Judeye is defending her man, Obama. What did those letters say she says ? Make NY attractive for business ? What a laugh. I have heard that for 30 plus years. Alternative energy , another laugh. We have fracking and the libs want to stop it. The unelected obamacare board will ration health care, the democratic dream for a hundred years. Judeye is for it. One confused woman. Dumbacratitis is surely contagious.Hey libs, I have sent many e-mails to my congressman, not one answer. I guess I work for them. Them dumbacrats !

Well, you just confirmed what many folks long suspected -- which is why he came close to losing the last election -- Rep Tom "Uncle Fester" Reed doesn't appear to neither have nor create a single original, creative or nuanced thought in his puffy head.

In other words, unlike the real Uncle Fester, Reed wouldn't be able to fire up a light bulb if you stuck one in his mouth.

Not surprisingly that Uncle Fester was unable and unwilling to address this fact: why do his constituents receive only 79 cents in federal spending for every hard $1 in federal tax they pay? And why do his fellow GOPers in the South receive up to $2.12 in spending for every $1? Speak about welfare reform...

1. Dcronig's "facts" can't be found anywhere. 2. The reason other states get more money is because they have higher numbers of people receiving unemployment AND more military installments, and NASA, and...Btw, his figures are waay off base. By miles.

I love the way they always talk about regulatory reform. Like worker protection, safe work environments, environmental regulations,let's blow the tops of more mountains, deforest more forests, etc. And if we are to discuss the farm bill, perhaps he should push for an end to farm subsidies for gigantic corporate farms who are paid millions to grow nothing. Lastly, if you want to really help the economy, how about getting rid of many of the military installations around the world, and the ships and planes the military neither want nor need.
