I refuse to answer on the ground it may "incriminate me"..Sounds like Lerner is saying I know the answer but I cannot be forced to confess. To answer may reveal I am a criminal.
Congressional hearings are usually a waste of time. There has not been nor will there be an investigation by any unbiased party. It is amazing how apathetic and uninformed Americans have become. The congressional strategy is if you can't dazzle them with brilliance then baffle them with BS which most voters think is brilliance.
Congress is like WWE wrestling, the outcome is known when the match starts but they put on one hell of a show before a draw is declared or a winner is announced. Most decisions are politically driven with little to no regard of what is best for the country.
They did agree that once they retire they will revert to their old healthcare coverage which is very liberal at tax payers expense and is exempt from the AHA law.
The behavior of people supports the theory of evolution.
Regardless of religious beliefs or political ideology Americans in a time if crisis or issues like Ukraine should support the POTUS.
The U.S. has no obligation to police the world and doing nothing is ok if the U.S. is not threatened.
Governments keep sucking money out of the economy and wonder why the economy is not rapidly expanding with more consumer demand?
Obamacare hit hardest those it is supposed to help.
Why should tax payers provide benefits for anyone other than the city employee? People seem to forget who is paying for all this feel good benevolence. No city job is so difficult and critical that retention is important other than fire and police personnel.
Those objecting due to the life style have no valid complaint.
All those country club style council members supporting the additional spending and not addressing the liberal government compensation need to be recalled and allowed to concentrate on their day jobs. It is a fiscal issue not physical.
Here is a plan...Require anyone applying for a drivers license to attend a gun safety course plus buy a gun and demonstrate they know how to use it. You get both license or neither. The driver license test needs to be more difficult but the state doesn't fund the operation adequately.
Top financial donors in 2013-2014:

A prominent early mover on the left is billionaire Tom Steyer, the founder of hedge fund firm Farallon Capital Management who is now an environmentalist. Steyer plans to spend $100 million or more to shape elections around fighting climate change.
Gun control doesn't appear to be a priority.
Gun laws appear to have little impact on best places to live and work. Vienna has held on to its title as the city with the highest quality of life, according to the 2014 rankings of the best places to live and work by management consultancy Mercer. Vienna was followed by Zurich, Switzerland, and Auckland, New Zealand. In fourth place was Germany's Munich while Vancouver, Canada, was in fifth -- the highest-ranked city in North America. Dusseldorf and Frankfurt, also in Germany, take sixth and seventh place. The highest ranking U.S. city was San Francisco, at 27th
Do the comments mean it is ok for the president to support and promote unions but not ok for a senator or anyone else to have a different opinion?
How many votes does anyone think the comments by any outsider swayed either way? How many commenting here have been involved in a union campaign to unionize a no union work site? The union can and will exert extensive pressure and use coercion to gain support.
If VW employees or VW management want a union so they can have a work council they would be wise to seek one other than the UAW. One of the trades such as IBEW would be more professional and better to work with.
fairmon... You forgot to throw in your obligatory faux "balancing" statement. Very unfair, mon
None appropriate with the UAW fat cats that would not benefit VW employees in any way. If a majority of VW employees want a union they should consider one other than the UAW.
