3. what is a clean CR?

i've heard that term several times on MSNBC.

CR = continuing resolution, presumably to extend government funding temporarily? WHat does "clean" mean?

5. "Clean" means a straight up vote to allocate funds for the government,

with no conditions attached (like the GOPers wanted).

7. This isn't over by a long shot. But Obama is following the law. They are attempting to repeal laws

by the wrong engine, and for no good reason. But the pressure, per the statement Obama made tonight, will not be over with. It will go on month after month. We must be ready to fight the lies and disinformaion.

We should not be fooled, this is something worth fighting for despite all the mealy mouthed media messages and lies. We should make no mistake, the ACA changes more than many people think.

It will end the tryanny of extorting by insurers and employers. They are turning their health care over to the government, just like the EU does. It will lead to UHC, the GOP knows this.

One of their prime tools to continue inequality, by keeping people afraid and sickly, going bankrupt, their hearts and economic status broken, will be gone. Yes, that is how evil they are.

UHC has come to the poor, don't think the rest won't be far behind. For the 31 million new Medicaid patients, they will not pay a dime. These are the most needy among us, the ones who often ignored PBO hasn't forgotten.

That issue was settled in social democracies. Are you a human being, do you need basic things? Will you be denied the essentials for lack money you don't have now, but might if you were healthy? Is there a pound for dollar value on human life, like grain, or is there more to life?

We can't move forward with peace and justice in this country if we don't treat all people equally. That is what makes peace and progress. It's not flashy, and it's the quier kind of freedom some take for granted as their right, but it is everyon's right. It's what allows a person to go to sleep at night know their basic needs will be met, so they can plan for higher things, instead of fighting each other for scraps like a pack of dogs without sense.

BTW, another poison pill for the GOP is that every person who registers for the ACA will be assisted to get registered to vote. The avalanche of people who value the social contract will overrun the regressives.

And they can't stop it now, so they will just get more and more crazy until a tipping point occurs. We are still in a lot of danger from them.

White House says report was wrong and people CAN register to vote when signing up for Obamacare

By Meteor Blades

A White House official told Talking Points Memo Wednesday that, contrary to claims two left-leaning groups reported that were spotlighted by Mother Jones magazine, Americans will be able to register to vote when they apply for subsidized health insurance at the mandated exchanges under the Affordable Care Act. The federal exchanges will operate in 36 states.

JMHO. YMMV.

8. The United States should never give in to terrorism whether of the violent variety,

nor of the more insidious blackmailing type.

Thanks for the thread, uppityperson.

Otherwise people won't forget this BS and they'll be fucked for a decade.
