    I could be wrong, but I read that there is no cut at all to military retiree payouts. And the cost of living increases for 65 year olds has not been changed. The only “cut” is that people “retiring” between the ages of 40 and 65 will see their payout grow a little more slowly. Now, as much as I respect the military, I can’t sympathize with someone retiring at 40 whining that his pay isn’t growing quite so fast. Not when I had to keep working to age 65. I know some retirees who are double-dipping military and social security payouts, and one who also worked for the government triple-dipping. Cry me a river, why don’t you.

    Perhaps McConnell will explain the utter failure of the Republicans, when they had majorities in both houses of Congress plus the White House for six years, to do anything to solve any of the obvious problems with health care, or restrain the regulatory agencies in any way, or control the growth of government. They did absolutely nothing. The did what the Democrats have done, only slower.

    Those Republicans of 2001 thru 2008 are the reason we have Obama and ACA and an out of control regulatory bureaucracy.

    Of course they brought their A team. The no-bid contract was given to Michelle’s best friend from college days, the firm which also employed Valerie Jarrett’s daughter and her husband. How could anyone possibly be better qualified?

    Mr. Vargas clearly believes that all the world can become Americans simply by crossing our borders and living here for a period of time. We American citizens have nothing to say of the matter. Judging by Obama’s polls, 60% of Hispanics agree with that.

    I have no sympathy for Oregon. They voted in a big way for Obama, and will again in November. Reap what you sow, fools!

    In what sense are contraception, abortion and sterilization health issues? Only if you consider pregnancy to be ill-health, and the prevention or elimination of pregnancy to be a return to good health.
