    Hey, sign this order and you get your kid back sooner. Doesn't this make the children simply hostages? An unintended facet of Trump's policy, or one that was calculated by folks in the administration with a brain...

    Russian-generated Facebook posts pushed Trump as 'only viable option'

    This new evidence should certainly convince and satisfy most Republicans and other doubters who thought there was no Russian influence in the election but now we have the story. There WAS INDEED Russian influence and interference in the 2016 election! No wonder Hillary Clinton did not win. Many...

    GOP to consider 'skinny' repeal option on health care

    Of course it is a foregone conclusion that removing the individual mandate from the Republican-led healthcare bill will result in more people opting out of purchasing health insurance and instead just going to hospitals and clinics when they need to and the taxpayers as well as the government...

    ANALYSIS: Senate's 'nuclear option' may have lasting consequences

    Right-Wing Senators who are wanting to go the nuclear option way need to listen to a seasoned Republican Senator who knows the quagmire that will inevitably result. There is absolutely no reason why Trump and Republicans cannot simply choose another nominee to the SCOTUS who is less...

    Senators fear fallout of nuclear option

    Either way the Senate will be screwed. So, the only logical thing to do to avoid a big fallout is to replace Gorsuch with another candidate who is less controversial. If Trump is smart he will do just that. ---------------------------------------- Senators fear fallout of nuclear...

    Entitlement Reform Is No Longer An Option, I't Necessary

    Entitled Spending If the War on Poverty has taken 50 to change absolutely nothing, suffice it to say that is a complete failure. Entitlement costs are radically in % of GDP. Social Security is a ponzi scheme that Bernie Madoff would be proud of. We need to rethink how we empower our poor...

    No GOOD Presidential Option, Your only path to protection and sanety is...

    We do NOT have a 2016 GOOD choice for the office of the President. It is sad, but it is true, and deep down inside we all know it! Yes, Trump would be 10X or more better than Hillary, but he is STILL deeply flawed. You will not be given a safe, sane, and proud choice for POTUS in 2016...

    Legislative panel approves special-language amendments to Private Option

    So, it looks like Arkansas has figured out how to make sure that Obamacare fails - just make sure no one knows how to sign up. The special language includes: So, how do we make sure that the ACA fail? Just make sure no one knows what it is, and how to access it.

    This is why its called the nuclear option.

    It basically ensures the destruction of partisanship on any level. You cannot strip one side of a valuable tool then expect them to play ball with you. Obama and the democrats have effectively ruined any chance of getting anything done now. This is the exact reason so many people have feared the...

    Nuclear Option??

    Reid is getting ready to go with ending the filibuster. McConnell just ended a rant on," Obamacare," and they voted against a Judge. We will see if Reid follows through this time.
