“One of the things I would like to ask Mitt.......
did you pay in taxes for the years 2004 through 2012? If so how much? Why wouldn't you show the public your returns for 10 years as previous nominees have? Did you really believe the right wingers who kept saying you were gonna win?”
“Simply pointing out that Burr left for lunch without listening to the testimony of the veterans group then had the gall to pen an "open letter" to them without hearing the testimony they gave was newswerthy to me.”
National EMS Week has been observed annually since it was first declared by President Gerald Ford in 1974. It brings together local communities and medical personnel to recognize and honor the dedication of those who provide the day-to-day lifesaving services of emergency medicine's "front line."
National Nurses Week
National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, Florence
Nightingale's birthday. These permanent dates enhance planning and position National Nurses
Week as an established recognition event. As of 1998, May 8 was designated as National
Student Nurses Day, to be celebrated annually. And as of 2003, National School Nurse Day is
celebrated on the Wednesday within National Nurses Week (May 6-12) each year
“Wow......repubs are really looking for an administration scandal anywhere they can manufacture one. Burr wants the veterans groups to hit the President and his administration hard on this issue. That is his/their only concern. Actually doing something for veterans is not in their playbook.”
“Most of the repub who say they are considering running for something, tend to do so to keep the money coming in their coffers. Then do as SaraP does........use the money on vacations for her and her family while donating pawltry sums to actual candidates running for an office.
I know the thrice married, family values, former repub house speaker newt gingrich will throw his hat in the ring for something. That is how he makes a living.”
“When you have career republican officials testify before the committee that no one from the White House asked them to "stick it to repubs" applying for 501c4 status and they only deny a liberal/democratic/progressive group.........there is no "there" there.
Believe it or not when it comes down to career folks in the govt, we just didn't think that way about political retribution. It is about doing the job. PERIOD!!”
“The republicans (boehner and cantor) feels that 109 days of work this year is the right amount for them. The house schedule/calendar under boehner's leadership is abysmal. And boehner himself said this past weekend he gets his tan from playing a lot of golf, which he can do since he is hardly working.”

“And yet the demer Senate SITS on 290 bills voted on by the Republican House. Kinda tells you who is working and who is NOT.”

“And the republicans are cheering for failure of this President. If he fails, I hope it's so big that Jamee Diamon goes broke.”

“Nonsense, They have been reinvesting in themselves and money markets, filing thier profits offshore, and investing there too. So much for patriotism.”

“Why should I give you the money I've saved and invested? Why do you feel entitled to the money I've saved by living below my means for decades?
I could have done what most Americans do and lived paycheck to paycheck, but instead I decided to do things like not eat out, drive old cars that were paid for, buy cheap houses that needed lots of work to live in, etc, so I could save that money instead.”

“2.19 trillion offshore where it can't be taxed...but don't worry, Ryan wants the the poor and middle class to pay more taxes and the rich to pay less...the republican answer...”
“repub governors are running on those low paying jobs. they are so proud. the pres has a jobs bill held up by republicans in congress. it passed the senate. tell boehner and his co-horts to do what is best for the country not their party.”

“You want to talk who is NOT doing their job? How about the Democratic led Senate. They are sitting on 290 bills that have already passed the House. Hmm. Wonder who is NOT doing their jobs? Oh, that's right. The demers.”
“"Democrats said the now-defunct limitation was inserted into the original law in an unsuccessful attempt to win the vote of former Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe of Maine. She supported the bill in the Senate Finance Committee but opposed it on the Senate floor"
You can't trust a republican. They are extremely duplicitous. Just another example of how they operate. Those "gentlemens agreements" between Reid and McConnell through the years always end with Reid being sucker punched.”
