Prostitution. Bribery. Blackmail. Thuggery. Hypocrisy. Those were just some of the incendiary words thrown around the U.S. Senate last week, and that doesnt count what people said in private.

We must have every law apply to both government and citizens.
If Obamacare is such a swell deal, you’d think the Congress-critters would be at the front of the line.
These people in the District of Criminals have clearly forgotten who they work for.
MY GAWD, what a bunch of sanctimonious pigs.
I loathe these people. D, R, all of 'em. They are all disgusting POS, no better than the illegal, illegimate ruler they prop up and worship. *SPIT*
illegimate = illegitimate
they have become parasites pure and simple
> We must have every law apply to both government and citizens.
Have thought this forever. A silver spoon shouldn’t be allowed to make rules for the masses that gives himself an exemption to bypass them. Seems sort of funny when you think how much they love PC
Agreed. Without equal application of the law to all citizens then we are just slaves in the waiting.
I would let go of my term limits push if we could instead have Congressional drug screening and a candidate psychological exam to weed out the power hungry and the immoral.
Hiding behind the skirt of Obama so they didn't have to vote on legislation themselves. Cowards. Spineless cowards.
Such elitism is a direct consequence of the Evo-humanist worldview.
They believe some humans, namely them, are so far advanced that applying the same rules to them would be detrimental to the advancement of humanity.
Some Animals are more equal than others.
What can we do to correct this problem? I feel so helpless. If our conservative leaders have no say or power in this matter, what can be done?
With the talk about defunding it via a shutdown, which seems doomed for failure, this (the subsidy to congress O-care) is being ignored by nearly everyone in congress.
This is low hanging fruit to specifically cut from the CR, Dems cant publicly oppose cutting it unlike all the handouts to voters but unfortunately the GOP wants it too..
It Shows that the don't blink gang expects to lose and still wants that subsidy when it does fail and Obama-care is fully funded.
The best way to end bad law is to make it apply equally to everyone.
An amendment to the US Constitution is the only way it will ever be passed. Congress and the Whore oops I mean White house will never allow this thru the regular legislative process.
What can be done?
How about saying No!
They did this dirty deed hoping no one would notice. Make sure people know about it and let your representatives know that you are sharing the information far and wide.
Ask your representatives if the Affordable care Act was going to drive their staffers to seek new jobs because it was so harmful, what are their constituents supposed to do? If it was harmful to their staffers, maybe it is a bad law that needs to be repealed?
Tell them to stand up with Senators Vitter and Enzi and do the right thing.
“What Vitters opponents fear most is that this fight will penetrate the publics consciousness. A new poll taken for Independent Womens Voice, a conservative group, found that 92 percent of voters think Congress shouldnt be exempted from the insurance provisions of Obamacare. “
Steps to take to minimize risk of identity theft:
1. Contact the IRS Identity Protection Specialized Unit at 1-800-908-4490
2. Order a tax account transcript from the IRS that verifies basic personal data along with details of your tax return filed, which may come in handy if you are checking to see whether someone else filed a fraudulent return on your behalf
The Federal Trade Commission (link at website) also lists several steps you must take if you have been a victim of identity theft.
It’s called massive civil disobedience. 546 crooks in DC cannot control hundreds of millions of Americans without their consent. History and numbers aren’t on their side.
contact your senators and congress people asap
Clearly "Special Skills" (a legal term) were used to get special benefits unavailable to the rest of us. This is a calculated conspiracy to facilitate criminal conduct............ and incurs Federal charges.
REFERENCE "Special Skills" involves devising ways to benefit oneself using information that the average citizen does not have access to. These people---Obama on down---need to held to account L/E is advised to take immediate action WRT the relevant agencies. Filing falsified govt documents is a crime that incurs several felonies...... and could involve forgery.
================================================== STOP OBAMACARE ALERT Contact your state AG---ask him/her to issue a letter of inquiry to groups receiving federal "Navigator" grants. The inquiry should center on questions WRT how the group intends to protect consumer data.
In particular, the questionnaire should ask if the tax-funded "Navigator" program intends to transfer personal/ financial/medical data of the insured to the local/county/national Democrat Party, relevant Unions, banks, investment companies, drug companies, insurance companies. Trial Lawyers' associations and whether "Navigators" have sub rosa contracts with these, and other groups, to provide significant info to enrich databases for pecuniary purposes.
REFERENCE A West Virginia nonprofit has turned down a federal grant it received to help residents navigate new health insurance options under the Affordable Care Act after it received an inquiry from Attorney General Patrick Morrisey about how it would protect consumer information. Clarksburg-based West Virginia Parent Training Inc. did not respond to a letter it received from Morrisey directing it to answer 26 questions about the group's personnel and hiring practices, including employee background checks and employee monitoring programs, the Sunday Gazette-Mail (http://bit.ly/17M1QVe) reported.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD WILL HAVE ACCESS TO SS#, TAX, MEDICAL INFORMATION
Breitbart Big Government ^ | 8/23/2013 | William Bigelow / FR Posted by markomalley
EXCERPT Planned Parenthood is about to obtain access to your Social Security number, tax form, bank account, and medical records.
With the advent of ObamaCare, consumers buying health insurance through health care exchanges will be required to speak to navigators. Navigators are supposed to help consumers find the best coverage and ascertain whether they are eligible for a federal subsidy.
Any navigator will have access to the federal data hub, which holds information from the Department of Health and Human Services, the IRS, the Social Security Administration, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Defense Department, the Office of Personnel Management, the Veterans Health Administration, and the Peace Corps.
Planned Parenthood received $655,000 from the Obama administration to hire navigators. In Iowa, Planned Parenthood of the Heartland received $214,427; in Montana, Intermountain Planned Parenthood, Inc. got $295,604; and in New Hampshire, Planned Parenthood of Northern New England raked in $145,161.
And there is not much scrutiny over who these navigators will be; HHS will not require background checks or fingerprinting, and a previous criminal conviction, even if it was for identity theft , will not trigger a rejection. To make matters worse, the administration has cut the new employees training from 30 hours to 20 and reduced screening.
OKLAHOMA WINS FIRST OCARE BATTLE: Quoting AG Pruitt--- "Obamacare was meant to be so open-ended that it could mean anything. We are seeing thousands of pages of new rules being written, both by HHS and the IRS. The open-ended interpretation of Obamacare enables this.....if the law doesn't contain a particular provision, no problem. They just make it up as they go along."
"Such is the case that involves the OK lawsuit."
The court rejected the federal governments argument that Oklahoma lacked standing to challenge the law, allowing us to proceed with this pivotal case, Were optimistic the court will recognize what states have known for months that the IRS disregarded the law by making the large employer mandate effective in Oklahoma or in any of the 33 other states without a state health care exchange.
REFERENCE Oklahoma challenged implementation of the Affordable Care Act after the IRS finalized a rule that would allow the federal government to punish large employers, including local government, with millions of dollars in tax penalties in states without state health care exchanges, which is not allowed under the health care law.
Congress provided a choice for Oklahoma and other states in implementation of the health care law, and the IRS is attempting to take that away by rule, General Pruitt said. The administration miscalculated how many states would support this law, so now theyre using the IRS to push through provisions that Congress did not pass.
Write your newspapers, call Talk radio, go to Town Halls, call CONGRESS!!
The PREZ CANNOT GET AWAY WITH THIS!!
If congress is staffed with the "best and brightest" this country has to offer Why can't they come up with a balanced budget?
That means there would only be TWO members of Congress.
Jesus and the Pope.
Once again the incestuous relationships that dominate life inside the beltway come to light!
Do I dare say; our founding fathers had it right when they set up a Republic based on part time legislators who spent more time at their homes in the states/districts that elected them than in “the halls of power”.
Like it or not inside the beltway has become their own universe that bears little resemblance to what we endure.
We were accidently granted a glimpse into this beltway universe in late 1994 - after the “Republican Revolution”. CNN was interviewing a congressional staffer who had lost his job because his congress critter had lost his first reelection bid. The poor man didn’t know how he was going to pay his bills, feed his family, or put his child(ren?) through college. Welcome to life outside the beltway!! Towards the end of the interview the CNN reporter found out that particular staffer had been working in that congressional district office for more than a decade.
That’s right the staffer had more seniority than his boss. Do we need any further discussion on how 1,000 page bills mysteriously appear on the Congressional floor without any committee involvement? Why congress critters don’t take time to read those bills? Or, any justification for “We have to pass the bill to find out what is in it!”?
This attitude isn’t new - it has been building for more than 20 years. Only recently has the infection become so bad that they cannot hide it any more.
Prostitution. Bribery. Blackmail. Thuggery. Hypocrisy.
Those were just some of the incendiary words thrown around the U.S. Senate last week, and that was just part of their new ethics criteria.
I just emailed my congresswoman and senators about how livid I am over this
Our Overlords in DC don't deserve better than us peasants out in the hinterlands? /sarc
Generally, anyone who wants power shouldn’t have it.
CALL IT WHAT IT IS; CORRUPTION
y’all do realize that these emails, phone calls, and letters are received by - wait for it - staffers.
A law must apply to all. A law that doesn’t apply to all is invalid.
There is no such thing as a “waiver.” “Waiver” means that the law will not be enforced. Selective enforcement is illegal and renders a law invalid.
The ruling elite has given itself special privileges, paid for by the public. It has made laws that it doesn’t plan to obey.
Does the public care? It cares more about kim kardashian’s butt than about congress.
Oh I included that the “staff” whining about “brain drain” is total bullshit because there are plenty of people out here who are highly educated and intelligent people without jobs due to obama’s disastrous economic policies who would jump at a chance for a cushy “staffer” job in some senator’s or some congressperson’s office.
because it’s not, the staffers are the loser relatives and loser sons and daughters of supporters who can’t get a real job
Hello REPORTERS.....THIS could be a STORY....LOOK INTO IT!!....yeah right.
An amendment to that effect has been proposed and quietly buried. Is it 1776 yet?
All Democrat staffers and most of the Republican staffers are some of the most slithering scumbags you can imagine.
