What about those jobs??? This is the 33nd time the House has voted on repealing ACA.


A law repealing ACA will not get passed the Senate, and certainly the President would veto it, IF it did. 


The House is not doing the people business.  They are getting paid to waste time....


House Votes (Again) to Repeal Health Care Overhaul

Waging old battles with new zeal, the House passed a bill on Wednesday to repeal President Obama’s health care overhaul law less than two weeks after the Supreme Court upheld its major provisions as constitutional.



More at the link. 


Including:  Democrats said the House was wasting time that would have been better spent trying to create jobs


Edit:  33 times the House has voted on repeal of ACA.

A Celtic "festival" came out here a few years ago. I started asking questions about my Scottish background. I found out I was part of Clan Cian (pronounced KEY an). A good clan, a warrior clan. Guess who was running the haggis stand? Our clan chief.


Not only have I tasted haggis, and liked it, but I served it for a few hours.

I came across a good word today, an old word that fits perfectly in the Regressive world - mammon; material wealth or possessions especially as having a debasing influence.


The Republicans serve mammon, not the people.



Edit: I got the number of times wrong in the quote by me.

Romney needs to learn his target audience, doesn't he?





He knew exactly who his target audience was and they were not the ones sitting in front of him.

A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side. Aristotle
Never discourage anyone...who continually makes progress, no matter how slow. Plato..

Obamacare is based on Romneycare. Didn't you know that?
