John Boehner To Bring Up Clean Debt-Ceiling Vote

John Boehner To Bring Up Clean Debt-Ceiling Vote

Commented Feb 11, 2014 at 15:00:18 in Politics

“You realize that spending has been down since Obama took office and the deficit has been steadily decreasing for well over two years now and some economist argue too fast.

Also The debt ceiling has nothing to do with spending more money, the debt ceiling is approving the payments for bills you already created. For example them not raising the debt ceiling would be like you calling the bank this month and saying I'm not paying my mortgage from last month......it would not go over well.”

“We should be judged on how many laws we repeal, okay fine, you haven't repealed one so your still a failing. If the Democrats are smart they'll start pointing out the fact that Republicans want to get rid of all worker protections while working for 6 figures doing the bare minimum. and when they do yet another Economic stand off in January and February know this is why.”

Supreme Court To Take Up Controversial Birth Control Cases

“Tough, reality is most people aren't religious anymore for these exact reasons, powerful corrupt people exploiting beliefs to get what they want. If you truly don't want to pay for this than close shop its that simple. I really don't understand why the so called religious in the Country feel like they have to judge everyone else and basically ignore everything their teachings tell them to be. Again invest in a time machine”

“If I have to see another Supreme Court decision argue that Corporations have the rights of people I'm going to be so disappointed. These Corporations are just screwing with the system to get themselves breaks. If you really are so against birth control then build a time machine and go back to the 1700s when there wasn't any if not then shut up.”

“This isnt about corporations. Its about being forced to pay for something that you morally dont agree with.”

MaineCoon on Nov 27, 2013 at 01:56:36

“This has nothing to do with corporations, it has everything to do with the plain language of the 1st Amendment: "... no law prohibiting the free exercise of religion." Once for all, get the government out of religion!

No one is stopping anyone who wants or needs the birth control medication from getting it, but there is no legitimate objective of the ACA to be served by forcing an employer to pay for someone's birth control when it violates their conscience. It is something the average person can easily afford out of pocket like other personal care products, but if not, then there are other means of getting the cost subsidized. Finally, if it means that much to you to get your birth control paid for by your employer, then that particular employer is probably not one you should be working for anyway.

Face it, this whole stink of forcing employers to pay for birth control against their conscience is one of political spite, not need.”

“I'm sorry but Zimmerman is the epitome of a broken Justice System. He clearly kills an unarmed 17 year old never has to answer for it. I mean he literally went on National TV and all but said he did it and a jury still freed him when half of them said he was clearly guilty.

Zimmerman is a dangerous person who has now 6 times had run ins with the police since July alone. However we just keep waiting for him to hurt someone again”

“well one your wrong the debt has been decreasing over the past year at a rate so quickly that it could hurt the Economy.  Secondly he didn't have total control, see when one side of the government decides hey were not going to agree with you regardless of whether its a good or idea or not then it makes it hard to accomplish things.

Thirdly that's the dumbest argument I've ever heard. debt is high but its because of spending.....of course it has nothing to do with the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, Medicare Part D, Bush taking a 5 billion surplus and turning it a 8 trillion debt.....oh and I'm sure the party who wasted 24 billion during the shutdown, lets trust them”

John Boehner said it was about jobs, jobs, jobs and so far has passed 42 votes on repealing the Healthcare Law, a bunch of abortion laws that clearly went nowhere, and read the constitution twice.
