    I sent this message to the DCCC:

    I am extremely disappointed that 17 DINO’s voted on the contempt citation for AG Holder. It seems that the committees could do a better job of informing these members of Congress on the facts. We all know in this case that there are none. I refuse to donate to the DCCC anymore because not one penny of my money should be going to these 17 Congress members:

    Jason Altmire (Pa.)
    John Barrow (Ga.)
    Dan Boren (Okla.)
    Leonard Boswell (Iowa)
    Ben Chandler (Ky.)
    Mark Critz (Pa.)
    Joe Donnelly (Ind.)
    Kathy Hochul (N.Y.)
    Ron Kind (Wis.)
    Larry Kissell (N.C.)
    Jim Matheson (Utah)
    Mike McIntyre (N.C.)
    Bill Owens (N.Y.)
    Collin Peterson (Minn.)
    Nick Rahall (W. Va.)
    Mike Ross (Ark.)
    Tim Walz (Minn.)

    I will instead throw those dollars toward President Obama’s re-election campaign.

      I’ll bet almost all of them are from rural areas with a large number of gun nuts and they are afraid of the NRA coming after them.

        I agree. The NRA said they “were taking names”. So in other words, no money for you in you don’t vote to hold AG Holder in contempt. All of them should kicked in the arse and thrown out of office.

      i think it matters that we keep democrats in office in 2012, whether we’re mad at them or not. these fools don’t deserve our money or our votes, but there’s nothing about the way they behave that would be improved by replacing them with republicans. i trust SPEAKER pelosi will deal with them next year!

      • June 28, 2012 at 6:45 pm

        You replace them with REAL democrats. No way in hell I’m holding my nose and reelecting these DINOS. I have more pride and passion than that. Just because they have a ‘D’ by their name doesn’t mean they’ll vote with the democrats. A bigger mistake that was made was electing Ron Barber to take Gabby Giffords place. She was after all a blue-dog democrat and he is going a long the same lines as some of the worst democrats in the House. He voted with republicans to hold Holder in contempt.

    • 31 cookemom
      June 28, 2012 at 6:41 pm

      the problem with this is if they think by voting for contempt they’re more likely to keep their seats, it won’t work. Blue dogs ahve fallen by the wayside in the wake of the teabutts. I understand the need to keep them in office, but they should understand that in those areas they’ve most likely alreadyb gotten rid of any moderate repub in the primary. What’s left are voters who will not vote for a teabut and those who will. Those who won’t are looking for a progressive/moderate/liberal, not a teabut lite.

        They are trying to ward off NRA attacks. My rep is one of these–very disappointed. He was very vocal in supporting the healthcare law and is usually pretty good on everything. But hunting is a big issue in this area. NRA could inflict damage. But I’m still disappointed.

          Romnesia – noun

          1. a political disease wherein the sufferer forgets video and written record of previous positions while vehemently railing against the opposition stance; flip-flopping on steroids; symptoms also include chronic lying, lack of intellectual heft and fear of journalistic inquiry.

          2. a remote island country in the north Atlantic, founded in late 2012 after landslide re-election of Barack Obama by former tea baggers and rethugs, climate change deniers who chose to self-deport. Tragically, the island was overtaken by rising sea levels and a massive swarm of sharks whose habitat was destroyed by oil spills.

    Somehow I doubt that PBO was actually fooled by the false CNN headline about the mandate being struck down – more likely, he probably already knew the decision and was aghast that CNN would make such a made a mistake, or deliberately report false information.

          There was a law professor on C-span radio this evening as I was driving home and he spoke about this. He said that he worked at the SC as a law clerk for Chief Justice Rehnquist. He then went to work for VP Joe when he was the judiciary chairman. He said the confidentiality was like night and day. He said that when you go to work at the SC you are told by the chief justice to never ever leak anything. He said this is even down to the administrative assistants. No one leaks. They see their jobs at the SC court as a privilege and that everyone takes that seriously. He said congress is just the opposite. There are leaks everywhere all the time. He said that took some getting used too after working at the SC.

          Hearing this I am inclined to agree that the President didn’t have a clue ahead of time and CNN Sucks.

      This new way – with the ‘notifications’ – you can stay on the same thread, but click the little box and see where the response was posted, what the person said, AND you can respond to it. ALL without leaving the thread that you are on. For me, it’s a little gray box that turns orange when someone has replied to one of my witty comments. 😎 😎

    This week PBS aired a Frontline program “Dentists and Dollars.” My station will repeat it tonight. It deals primarily with Meicaid patients, but also touches on the huge number of Americans who can’t afford dental care. One outfit featured, Cool Smiles, sets up clinics for Medicaid patients around the country. It was run by a private equity group. Turns out that they pressured their employees to meet increasing quotas, pushed caps (bigger payoff that fillings) and were doing substandard work. Quite a racquet. Private equity principles in medicine leaves out the patient (how insurance companies like to operate) and when applied to government, will do the same for the people.

      June 28, 2012 at 7:10 pm

      Yeah, that is so uncool. It’s almost like they treat your mouth as not a part of your body. Dental caries (cavities) are the most common disease. And when a cavity goes untreated (really untreated, I’m not talking about waiting a few days until you can get to see a dentist…) you can actually die from blood poisoning. The problem is horrible within the disability community. Many people with special healthcare needs have to be sedated to receive dental care. There are situation where the dental care is covered, but the anesthesia is not.

      Cruel and mean-spirited!!! WE ARE SUPPOSED TO TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN, even the dumbasses who don’t want to be taken care of. Like someone posted earlier. The older guy who loved the care he got at his VA, but hated Obamacare.

    The movie is Magic Mike. I had to call the box office. There had better be some nice physiques and lots of partial nudity in this movie for all this trouble I went to to get tickets.

      “As a result of the action taken today by the House an unnecessary court conflict will ensue. My efforts to resolve this matter short of a such a battle were rebuffed by Congressman Issa and by his supporters. It’s clear that they were not interested in bringing an end to this dispute or even obtaining the information they say they wanted. Ultimately their goal was the vote that, with the help of special interests, they now have engineered. Whatever the path that this matter will now follow, it will not distract me or the men and women of the United Stated Department of Justice from the important tasks that are our responsibility A great deal of work for the American people needs to be done. I’m going to be getting back to it. I suggest those who orchestrated this vote do the same. ” – Attorney General Eric Holder

      ———–
      I love how he shot that look of determined assertion across both sides of the room, then just walked away from the podium when he finished.

        Holder’s response was brilliant and perfect. He’s the adult rightly castigating wayward and silly children in Congress who do not know how to act responsibly. I loved when he said that this nonsense will not deter him and that he’s determined to continue to do his job. Whatever Issa and his fellow morons hoped to accomplish, it is Eric Holder who stands tall today–a man who commands our respect and admiration. Issa and his clown cohorts look like mean-spirited, stupid little worms.

    In an email to supporters under President Obama’s name, the Obama campaign asks supporters to stand with him in the wake of the health care decision:

    This is a good day for millions of Americans who can continue to benefit from the protections and economic security provided by the Affordable Care Act.

    While the Supreme Court’s decision should put to rest the debate over health care, Mitt Romney and the Republicans in Congress just can’t take yes for an answer.

    My opponent said a short while ago that the first thing he would try to do as president is repeal the health care law. We can’t allow that to happen. So we have to win this election.

    Statement by White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer on Today’s Contempt Vote in the U.S. House of Representatives
    http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2012/06/28/statement-white-house-communications-director-dan-pfeiffer-today-s-conte

    ——————————————————-
    At the beginning of this year, Republicans announced one of their top priorities was to investigate the Administration and to ensure that President Obama was a one-term President. Despite the major economic challenges facing the country, they talked openly about devoting taxpayer-funded, Congressional oversight resources to political purposes.

    The problem of gunwalking was a field-driven tactic that dated back to the George W. Bush Administration, and it was this Administration’s Attorney General who ended it. Attorney General Holder has said repeatedly that fighting criminal activity along the Southwest Border – including the illegal trafficking of guns to Mexico has been is a top priority of the Department. Eric Holder has been an excellent Attorney General and just yesterday the Chairman of the House Oversight Committee acknowledged that he had no evidence – or even the suspicion – that the Attorney General knew of the misguided tactics used in this operation.

    Yet, Republicans pushed for political theater rather than legitimate Congressional oversight. Over the past fourteen months, the Justice Department accommodated Congressional investigators, producing 7,600 pages of documents, and testifying at eleven Congressional hearings. In an act of good faith, this week the Administration made an additional offer which would have resulted in the Committee getting unprecedented access to documents dispelling any notion of an intent to mislead. But unfortunately, a politically-motivated agenda prevailed and instead of engaging with the President in efforts to create jobs and grow the economy, today we saw the House of Representatives perform a transparently political stunt.

    Anybody know anything about ActBlue. They are soliciting money. Is this a legit organization?

    • 131 Dudette
      June 28, 2012 at 8:08 pm

      Ask them how much of the money they collect goes to directly the candidates and how much goes to “overhead”.

      June 28, 2012 at 8:10 pm

      Yes. ActBlue is a legit organization where you can donate money to them and they distrube funds to Democrats or you can donate through ActBlue to a specific Democratic candidate of your choice.

    I just wanna thank Nancy Smash this evening. When Scott Brown was elected, and Democrats began to despair, she told them to buckle up and gird those loins and helped the President drag the ACA over the finish line.

    thank you, Nancy Smash.

        LL…when I clicked on your NR link…that link had the USA today op ed link…when I clicked on that…it was redirected to Mitt Romney site..with THIS :

        Welcome visitors from Buzzfeed, Hot Air, Talking Points Memo, The Huffington Post, The Gateway Pundit, and yes… even The Blue Mass Group. Here is our response to the manufactured controversy about the op-ed below. While you are here may we suggest you also check out our extensive research on RomneyCare which can be found here: RomneyCare – The Truth about Massachusetts Health Care

        There is also a quote there by Ronald Reagan which is sure to be of interest.

          So it never linked to the USA Today op ed…they funneled it to the Mitt site and had this “Welcome” message..so they could spin….

        • 151 Liberal Librarian
          June 28, 2012 at 9:40 pm

          yeah, I saw that. The USA Today is no longer on their website. The Romney site is of less interest than the fact that NRO just doesn’t like Romney. And at least the Romney site has the op-ed. They can try to spin it, but Romney basically urged Obama to adopt Romneycare.

    The medical industry has more jobs than they can feel because of the specific technical expertise and training needed. I only wish there were more entry level training positions.

    Hey guys!! Today was a good day. Only two bad things happened. 1 was the fact that I didn’t get to see Michelle Obama today, but my co worker went and he showed me the up close pics of him shaking hands with her and while I was jealous, I really appreciated him sharing the experience (btw, I told him I was jealous and I’m not ashamed. He just laughed and told me I was crazy). I guess, I’m really not jealous, I just wish I could have been there with him. The other bad thing was when a co-worker came up to me and said, “They passed Obamamcare today(with a real disdain in her tone) and now I have to worry about losing my SS and Medicare.” She said that 200 million people were going to lose their jobs as well. I told her that you don’t have to worry about your SS or Medicare.I tried to explain to her a little about the Medicaid part of the law. But I know I didn’t do a good job because I was so thrown off by her coming up to me saying that. She knows that I’m an Obamabot because she passes my cubicle with my Obama pics everyday. So, I know she was trying to rile me up. I need to get better with counter points when people come to me spouting talking points that they have heard from FOX and other MSM. I am going to be more prepared and calm in future situations.

    HZ, I donated a little something to you. I love ya Lady!

    Politicians who can’t take a position on an issue unless it serves their interest need to take a page from the President’s playbook. PBO has been hammering home the ‘because it’s the right thing to do’ point and it is to be hoped that they are listening. Of course we as voters have to do our part by always rewarding politicians who do the right thing.

    Most peole that answer polls saying the don’t like The ACA also answer that they like what is in it. THEY LIKE WHAT IS IN IT. I know a lot of good people are working hard on this, but ALL OF US, the Campaign, Pro POB PACS, the DNC MUST be relentless telling Americans in simple terms what the ACA really does.
    FIRED UP ——— READY TO GO!!

    I got an email earlier today from a Sistafriend. Between the two of us, I am the political junkie- we don’t talk politics very much. But, her email was so simple. She said,

    ” I was worried FOR HIM.”

    She didn’t have to explain to me who HIM was. I understood.

    I respect President Barack Obama for many reasons, most among them is the fact that he inherited a mess, and in addition to trying to clean it up, he CHOSE to tackle healthcare. It wasn’t the ‘safe’ thing to do, but it was the right thing to do.

    There has been a concerted effort from the moment this President was sworn in, to diminish and disrespect all that he has done and tried to do. To try and erase this man’s place in history.

    Today’s decision will take care of that.

    Loved this final piece from Rev. Al’s show yesterday.
