“Because the Constitution permits such a tax, it is not our role to forbid it, or to pass upon its wisdom or fairness,” Roberts said.”
“Women go to the doctor more often than men and spend more on medicines. Their lifetime medical costs are much higher, and so it makes all the sense in the world to charge women higher premiums. But Sen. John Kerry pandered, saying, “The disparity between women and men in the individual insurance market is just plain wrong, and it has to change!”
“When I argue that medical insurance makes people indifferent to costs, I get online comments like: “I guess the 47 million people who don’t have health care should just die, right, John?”
The truth is, almost all people do get health care, even if they don’t have health insurance. Hospitals rarely turn people away; Medicaid and charities pay for care; some individuals pay cash; some doctors forgive bills. I wish people would stop conflating the terms “health care,” “health insurance” and “Obamacare.” Reporters ask guests things like: “Should Congress repeal health care?” I sure don’t want anyone’s health care repealed.”
“Reporters also routinely called Obamacare health “reform.” But the definition of reform is: making something better. More government control won’t do that. We should call politicians’ insurance demands “big intrusive complex government micromanagement.”
“So as not to leave out any guilty party, gay conservatives must also be critical of the place of gay moderates, who stand by, never actually taking cheap shots, but never speaking up in the fear that they will become prey to the lions of gay activism. This is a cowardly position, and must be address as such, because with no repercussions, the most vicious supporters of the gay Left ideology may become even more intolerant of gay conservatives, their straight allies, and US citizens as a whole. Even more so as the president’s re-election campaign goes full throttle.”
To applause, he said that 3m young people had been added to their parents insurance under the law and that it was “the right thing” to give senior citizens discounts on prescription drugs.
Gee, who’s paying for having “junior” on the health plan when he could be paying for it on his own? You see, like everything else the Left counts as a freebie, there’s a cost to this. Don’t forget that even those without children under 26 are on the hook as well.
Have a nice day
SB 1070 was designed to essentially mirror US immigration law, so how can Rubio not call this ideal?
The laws are fine. All we need is enforcement.
“I think Arizona-type laws are not ideal,” the Florida Republican said on “Fox & Friends.” “I don’t think they’re the ideal way to handle this issue. I’ve never believed in state immigration policies.”
“There is a second possibility, however, which should be more encouraging to conservatives – it is entirely possible that Roberts joined with the liberal wing on this ruling in order to provide cover for the Obamacare decision to be handed down later this week. That decision will likely be 5-4, with Kennedy as the deciding vote – and it has not been unheard-of at the Supreme Court level for a certain amount of vote-swapping to occur.”
Learn it. Live it. Love it.
“And when a sluggish republic hinders progress, it’s time to act. Just ask Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who advanced an astonishing argument the other day on the Senate floor: The president, explained Reid, is free to unilaterally craft immigration policy because we’ve tried to do that for years, and we can’t because they won’t let us.
For those of you who have forgotten, in “The Federalist,” Paper 51, Publius writes: “In a republic, all the power surrendered by the people is submitted to the administration of a single government; and the usurpations are guarded against by a division of the government into distinct and separate departments. … Then again, if ‘they don’t let you,’ well, feel free to disregard the previous 900,000 words.”
Today’s Democratic logic goes like this: If Congress is unable to pass progressive agenda items with a simple majority of legislators (and thankfully, that’s the case), the vote of a single person will do just fine. President Obama is, after all, on his “We Can’t Wait” tour. “We can’t wait for Congress to do its job,” Obama told supporters on a recent campaign stop. “So where they won’t act, I will. We’re going to look every single day to figure out what we can do without Congress.”
That’s the spirit!”
I can only imagine the pain felt by the family, friends, and colleagues of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
Let’s remember, among the Mexican civilians killed, ICE Special Agent Jaime Zapata also lost his life serving our beloved country.
