  • I am soooo disgusted. They are going to tax us into oblivion, and add more of what they claim to be stopping, and they are so fricken proud of what they are doing "for the people" when the PEOPLE are outside there saying KILL THE BILL! They clearly are not listening, and think they are doing us a FAVOR!

    What the hell good is an Executive Order, that will only take another Executive Order to rescind the first order? I had hope for Stupe, but he let America down.

    No he didn't, he got an executive order implying that might happen, but that can easily be circumvented with dozens of loopholes if anyone decides to do it. He did NOT get a change to the actual wording of the bill, which means he is voting for legislation he does not agree with on the hopes that an executive order will not be rescinded or worked around.

  • A sell out who got the provisions he wanted protecting federal funds from being used for abortions? I think we have different definitions of what a sell out is...But I already knew that
