Re: "I Don't Care if It's Legal"

I think you have your wires crossed. Congress has long tried to fix the problem yet the dem party and the Obama Admin continues block their efforts

Until the terrorist organization is stripped of power from Gaza, everyone of their demands will NOT be met.

Re: Obamacare author says "No tax credits"

To claim that he was "the AUTHOR" of the law is clearly misleading. Legislation is written and revised by many people, and he does not claim to have written this section.

Re: How to Succeed in Politics? Cheat

He will probably claim sloppy citations, just like Rand Paul (despite the fact that Paul's infractions involved wholesale copying of others' works). Sadly, stories like this have short lives and limited impact.

Re: major blow to health law

Reid packed the DC court with democrats

Only in the mind of a conservative is filling 4 vacant seats "packing" the DC Court. To the rest of us, it is the President and Senate carrying out their Constitutional function.

I should also point out that it is entirely likely that the DC Circuit will hear this en banc. If the DC Circuit, sitting en banc, reverses the panel, then there would be no circuit split, the Supreme Court would be less likely to pick up the case, [more]

Re: major blow to health law

Major blow? This is a gut shot; most likely fatal to the law as written.

Re: A student with more common sense than PA lib

Except there is data supporting his reasons for the pay disparity. There isn't for the discrimination case.
