Fair and balanced?
Peanut – As you well know, the Democrats are in complete control of the government, which doesn’t give Republicans much of an opportunity to pass legislation. And honestly, the number of worthy GOP bills introduced in the House or Senate that were ignored are far too numerous to list here. But since you insistent on a response….some of my favorite GOP accomplishments & bills last year.
– Submitting no less than 8 different health care bills designed to reduce frivolous lawsuits, increase competition, and increase availability for all Americans.
– Voting against all the ridiculous liberal sponsored health care bills
– Voting against Cap and Trade
– Winning Virigina and New Jersey Gov elections.
– S.1932 – Post 9/11 Troops to Teachers Enhancement Act
This is a bill to amend the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 to allow members of the Armed Forces who served on active duty on or after September 11, 2001, to be eligible to participate in the Troops-to-Teachers Program, and for other purposes
S.Res.193 – A resolution expressing support for all Iranian citizens who embrace the values of freedom, human rights, civil liberties, and rule of law, and for other purposes. (Something our President should have done, but failed miserably, thus necessitating this bill)
S.1287 – Department of Defense Financial Accountability Act of 2009 A bill to provide for the audit of financial statements of the Department of Defense for fiscal year 2017 and fiscal years thereafter, and for other purposes
S.Con.Res.29 – A concurrent resolution expressing the sense of the Congress that John Arthur “Jack” Johnson should receive a posthumous pardon for the racially motivated conviction in 1913 that diminished the athletic, cultural, and historic significance of Jack Johnson and unduly tarnished his reputation
S.2743 – Cold War Service Medal Act of 2009 A bill to amend title 10, United States Code, to provide for the award of a military service medal to members of the Armed Forces who served honorably during the Cold War, and for other purposes
H.R.3394 – Freedom of Health Speech Act
To amend the Federal Trade Commission Act concerning the burden of proof in false advertising cases involving dietary supplements and dietary ingredients.
H.R.2631 – Affordable Gas Price Act
To reduce the price of gasoline by allowing for offshore drilling, eliminating Federal obstacles to constructing refineries and providing incentives for investment in refineries, suspending Federal fuel taxes when gasoline prices reach a benchmark amount, and promoting free trade.
It was a bad day for me, and I needed a good laugh.
I have to admit that I don’t watch Fox News, so this was interesting.
I like my news to be of the non-fiction variety.
Peanut, you should’ve gave it a bit more time. It was hilarious. They were talking about death panels. I haven’t laughed that much in quite some time.
Death Panels…that’s a good one. Now, I’m laughing again.
Depending on how you define death panel, you may not want to laugh.
If you had a group of government experts who say for instance..decided that it was not cost effective to provide screening mammograms to women between the ages of 40 and 50 because it cost too much money for year of quality life saved and then your 40 year old wife was not diagnosed with breast cancer until it had metastasized and she died…Well would you call that a death panel or a government efficiency in health care utilization panel or what?
Now they wouldn’t have told your wife to her face that she needed to die but they would have caused her needless death for budgetary reasons. Isn’t that a death panel of some sort?
Well Pat isn’t that what you want, opposition. That is what you said a few post back. What do you want unity now?
“And then there’s the recurring message about “unity.” I’ve always been a little wary of calls for unity. This is America. We should be united only on the most basic of our principles, not in our everyday politics. People who extol unity usually mean they want everyone to agree with them.”
But it\’s ok for MSNBC Keith Overbite to slame and what\’s her face after him do the same,
So nut case what channel do you get your news from?
Man Numbnuts is on a rampage. His heart is broken over the loss. Oh, yes only your opinion counts Peabrain. Nobody keeps me in line. Are you threatening me?
NOW IF THAT was one of us, Pat would have threaten throw us off this site.
opposite of nigger, an insult to whites.
expdoc: Let’s not use the N-word — even to make a point. OK?
And, no, “cracker” isn’t as unacceptable as the N-word. You may think it is, but I don’t.
Peanut: No more N-word. Period.
Your support of Peanut in the use of the word cracker is embarrasing to you and peanut. I wonder what MLK would think about that? How do you think that furthers the goal of acceptance and improving race relations in this country?
The loss of the Kennedy senate seat has sent you boys of the edge.
