Patty Murray: Democrats' Unlikely Iron Lady Of The Budget Battle

Patty Murray: Democrats' Unlikely Iron Lady Of The Budget Battle

“This congress is making the last "do nothing" congress look like a bunch of caffiene-laden busy bodies!

I'd like to see them pass some reasonable rules on limiting the money in politics.
Then it would be nice to see them make some rules that hurt the rich instead of the poor. I know...we can only dream they might do what's best for ALL the people!”

“It wasn't really a lie so much as it was an incomplete statement. He should have said "If you have ACA-equivalet insurance...." Those who are screaming about this likely have "junk" insurance that's cheap but doesn't provide enough coverage, thereby passing the uninsured costs onto the taxpayers. And when some of these cases have been publicized, knowledgeable people have come to them and found a much better deal for them on the ACA --- but that part doesn't often get publicity.

And where was your outrage when Bush's Medicare Part D web site failed miserably?? That program was also severely underfunded by at least a half trillion dollars that got dumped onto the taxpayers.”

“My first choice would be Rachel Maddow, followed by Lawrence O'Donnell and Chris Hayes. They often cite sources AND when they make a mistake, they correct it and apologize. I do get news from several other sources, but those 3 are my favorites on that channel.”

“You must be watching the wrong shows, because there are a few really good, well-informed programs led by excellent people who present well-sourced information.”

“People should always be suspicious of any group (like the TBaggers) who are constantly critical, uneducated on the topic(s), and loud. They don't offer any kindnesses or better suggestions, just hatred and disrespect.

They also don't realize how much they're being played like puppets by their corporate masters.”

“This is another one of those situations where Pakistan expresses public outrage ..... but privately they don't really object to the drone strikes as strongly. The drone operators do try to be careful, but sometimes there have been some unintended accidents.

It's saved the lives of a lot of other people, not to mention soldiers, who may have been collateral damage in a land fight. There is no good option.”

“If the price our subsidized gas was a high in the US as it is in Europe, there'd be a lot less frivolous driving here. Over time, we need to be far less dependent on petroleum and steer toward renewables. The alternative is useless aquifers and lots of acres of oil-soaked fields and pollution.....well, you get the idea.”

“Seriously, they're NOT paying attention or being active advocates for their own interests. Also some get news from sources that aren't telling ALL of the facts.”

“I live in a red, red state, where most people get ALL their "news" from Fox. They've been convinced that anything that doesn't come from Fox, or a rightwing site, or even an anonymous chain e-mail, is "liberal" and can't be believed. I had that discussion (argument) with my sister. After she'd tried hard to convince me that there were death panels in the ACA, I told her she needed to get her information from a variety of sources. She heatedly insisted that she did. Later in the conversation, it turned out her "variety" was limited to Fox. That's because Fox "has liberals, too."”

I guess there's some trade secrets or something involved.....but it's a personnel issue that triggered it, and really nothing to do with the product.”

“People aren't paying proper attention to the overview of this --- the gradual, massive transfer of wealth to the very upper class. It's happening worldwide and by the time people wake up, it may be too late.”

“It's not just global warming, but also the kind of oil they're wanting to move. It's the filthiest, most corrosive stuff around, and has a lot of sand in it. So passing it through a pipeline will not only be subjected to the affects of sanding/grinding, but the corrosion, which will lead to pipe breaks. And the oil companies have not figured out how to detect spills OR clean the spills up yet. There's a spill in Canada they've been trying to clean for 2 yrs and it's still a big mess. Imagine that in our heartland......”

“Good for you with the solar cells.
The Canadian (filthy, sandy) oil is going on the market and probably will wind up in China. So the shortest route would be straight west BUT the smart people of Canada refused the risk to allow this dirty oil to cross the land.

So then they tried to get it through the US to the Gulf. If we're smart, we'll refuse it too, since there's no guarantee it's not going to China anyway. Even if it's not -- how can we be dumb enough to allow such bad oil to pollute the huge resources of groundwater? The oil companies have not been able to detect pipeline problems, AND they've never found a way to clean the stuff up either. Not good. That's a pretty darned bad trade-off.”

“Any time such a business sends their underpaid workers to charity or government services, that ought to be a huge call for adjusting salaries upward --- especially for one of the most profitable businesses in the country whose owners are very wealthy.

The public is being told by the owners that they'll keep the profits and the public will be forced to support the underpaid workers. I'll continue to drive by McD's just like I drive by WalMart. I cannot and will not give them any support unless/until they learn some ethics.”

“It's time to fine companies like McDonald's and Walmart the exact amount taxpayers spend on safety net programs for their underpaid workers. Or maybe double the amount. Yeah, that's the ticket . . . .”

“David Pogue is such a talented guy! I've tried to catch every "NOVA" show on PBS where he is the narrator. He's bright, funny, and makes topics interesting.

However, I wish he would be present in a place other than Yahoo. All the changes they've made lately have made things worse than they were before. As soon as I find another similar service, I'll close my Yahoo account. I'm sure they won't miss me but if enough people leave, maybe they'll take a hint. Or not.”

“Also, if you think about it, it's one way to transfer wealth from the working class to the military industrial complex and the corporate/rich who own them. It also explains why they'd prefer to increase military (defense) spending while whacking Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid --- there's little benefit in it for the corporate owners.”
