    Not talking about Obamacare. Simply define what benefits the vets are now entitled to and allow all insurance companies to offer that plan.

    Yeah but if you could pick and chose; the liberal cable companies would loose the power to “decide” which stations you are forced to fund. For example, MSNBC is owned by Comcast. How many people do you think would voluntarily pay for it? Sling wants that same power.

    The VA is a great example of a fed bureaucracy that could easily be shut down. In it’s place, the government can define the health benefits now covered by the VA in an insurance policy definition, and pay the premiums for any veteran who does not have access to a comparable policy through work.
    Vets have more choice and it would cost a lot less

    In reply to the contribution Surprise, Surprise. The VA is Understaffed

    Or two fewer vacancies for when people are in need of a job.

    WayTruthLife777 If you took 2 years of economics, you didn’t learn a thing, Your statements are proof that you have zero understanding of cause and effect of monetary policy.

    Your statements are purely emotionally driven and contradict actual reality. It’s a good thing to care about the poor, but to truly help them requires the basic understanding that what may sound good on the surface often does far more harm than good.

    What you are saying is emotional hogwash. I understand wanting to see everyone have a better life, but you are ignoring the facts. Most important is that raising the minimum wage HURTS the poor, it does not help.

    Additionally, very few people actually work for minimum wage. Raising the min wage would drastically increase those numbers.

    If people want to make a better life for themselves, the biggest part of the responsibility is on themselves, it should not be done by destroying the success of others. As a society we should reach out a hand to people to HELP THEM HELP THEMSELVES. Hand outs (including artificially paying more than the job is worth) simply make things worse. Ever hear of the adage about giving a man a fish vs teaching hi to fish?

    If roofers are in an over supply they are worth less. The problem is that there are so many illegal immigrants doing the job that Americans lives are being devalued.

    Go ahead, vote for another democrat or Jeb Bush type Republican. It’ll keep getting worse until our standard of living is he same as the third world.

    Here is the real definition of wage justice.

    The amount you get paid is a reflection of how many people can do the job, how productive you are, and how profitable the business you are working in is.

    If you work in a low skilled job, then anyone can fill your position. If you train yourself to learn better skills, you enable yourself to compete for better jobs.

    If you are highly productive at work, you are of more value to your employer. If you sit around doing the minimum and complaining how you are being picked on, you are worthless.

    If you help your employer to be more successful. then he/she can afford to pay more. If you demand to take what’s not there, then everyone in the company looses.

    “Calling for his removal” is nothing more than political showmanship.

    If the House republicans really cared, they wouldn’t “call for his removal”, they would indict him for the crimes he has committed. and Yes, Congress does have the power to indict.

    Mr. Bell… did you ever read the bible? The central message of Jesus was that we all have been given a free will to choose him or reject him. He does not condemn people to burn in hell, they choose that for themselves.

    His secondary message was that if we choose him, then we must modify our behavior to what God calls for. That includes loving others as ourselves.

    McDonalds took the country by storm in the 7′s because they were super clean, decent food at good prices and pleasant people to deal with.

    None of those are true today.

    NYT, Pravda, they are the same.

    Doesn’t really matter because does anyone really believe that this corrupt executive branch would actually care if she is a criminal? If they did open an investigation, it would be all show boat and no substance.

    Capitalism use to work just fine until the government decided to “control” it. Today it is no longer true capitalism. It is crony capitalism where the mega corporations and the government work hand in hand for their own mutual benefits.

    You want to fix capitalism? Get the government out of it, except to insure an environment of substantial competition.

    This is just more evidence that people who want to kill will use any tools available. All the mass killings highlight a problem with society, not with the tools they use to accomplish it.

    Teach morality, self control, integrity, manners and concern for the rights of others instead of the self focused “me first” and only MY RIGHTS matter, “poor me” mentality that we saturate our kids with today and there will be far fewer of these incidents.

    Shows just how gullible people are. Big money has always been primarily democrat, NOT republican. Check out the Forbes list of the richest billionaires. They are almost all democrats, socialists and liberals!

    Is she above the law, or should the law be applied equally to her as it would be to anyone else? If it is to be applied equally, then she should be arrested and put in jail until the court order is fully complied with. That is standard process for anyone else that has been ignoring court orders.

    Joe, the list goes much further than that. Hitler aligned with every democrat party position today except for allowing illegal immigration. And the only reason the democrats are supporting that is to build another voting block they can control.

  • July 17, 2015 at 11:34am

    I’m sure you are just being sarcastic because you really can’t be that naive and gullible can you?

    Hitler was a socialist. His politics aligned exactly with the American democrat party on every issue, including viewing EVERYTHING through a racial lens..

    As Scott Walker opposes nearly everything the socialists support, I would like to see this imaginary list and compare it to all the similarities Hitler had with todays democrat party platform.

    After all the history and evidence we have about how inefficient and wasteful commuter trains are, it’s amazing how people are still suckered into supporting them. The only reason any politician supports commuter trains is because it is a lucrative source of contract kick backs and real estate investment opportunities that only they know about.
