“If there is nothing else attached to ENDA, then it's much easier to expose those that vote against the bill. HOWEVER, when bills like this are bundled with other items intentionally knowing it will be voted down, then accusations of discrimination and homophobia are made. Put it on it's own, let them vote publicly, and then allow consequences.”

“We all know about the vagina monologue, but she must first know how to debate and win on more issues.”

“She's a trained Harvard lawyer who knows the ropes extremely well. When tgop gerrymandered her district out of existence she fought in court to get it back and won. Then she won re-election. She knows how to fight and if anybody thinks she can't, they will be in for a rude awakening. Rick Perry cut education to the bone. She fought him and got most of it restored. She won the fillibuster fight. Rick Perry had to resort to a veto to over ride her win. But now.....she will have the VETO pen.”

“If we're calling Jon's stories journalism....then competent journalism would have told Jon that Cruz doesn't use government healthcare. His healthcare package is not a debt to the taxpayer.”

boyndog on Sep 26, 2013 at 15:20:12

“Ummm... actually, the US taxpayer DOES get the pleasure of helping subsidize Ted Cruz's health care -- because he gets his coverage via his wife's policy at Goldman Sachs (a true Cadillac policy) -- a company which US taxpayers bailed out. Those monies (out of YOUR pocket, runtexas), were used, in part, to pay for salaries and benefits INCLUDING those $40,000 a year in health care premiums that every Goldman Sachs executive gets.”

“What's not stated in this is that if we raise the minimum wage to $10 - to offset the increase in wages companies will have to reduce the number of employees, or raise prices.

If prices raise, then we continue to have poverty. If we reduce the number of employees, those still working could get out of the poverty level.

So it's a good thing to have 20% unemployment but fewer people in poverty?”
