I will cut the deficit in half my first term and should be a one term president if I don't.
I will reduce unemployment to under six percent.
If you like your healthcare plan you can keep it, if you like your current doctor you can keep them...period!
I will close Gitmo my first year in office.
What promises that will benefit me can the UAW make in writing? Would they be any more binding than those above? Does the UAW need me more than I need them?
If you refuse to believe the Koch brothers have not supported Tea Party candidates, events, or legislation through their organizations you are just wearing blinders. Do a little homework, OK?
I have done extensive homework on them, George Soros, Warren Buffet, Bill Gates and others including unions which out contribute all of them. George Soros is by far the most active and devious. I am sure they have supported or endorsed some candidates with tea party affiliation but like Hilary says "what does it matter"? You give them way too much credit for their influence which is nil compared to Soros and unions.
hotdiggity said...What is the connection of the Koch brothers to the Tea Party? You're serious, right? Right? Oh my gosh.
I am serious. Do you have valid evidence they are involved with the local tea party or other tea groups? They do publicly state their libertarian ideology. Do you know the influence George Soros has with the administration? What do you know about Valerie Jarrett?

Well we can start locally if you wish. Can you say Bo Watson and the "Monkey Bill"? Domestic partner benefits ordinance? Perhaps you recognize the name Mark West?
What is the connection with the Kock brothers?
hotdiggity said..a Koch belief of trickle down economics and moral superiority.
I am not a fan of theirs but they are a minnow in a pond with sharks like George Soros. Is there one example of their success in influencing legislation?

So to answer your question, I don't like them much at all and am more inclined to seek facts where they CAN be found.
Did your search find the fact that the president is not authorized by the constitution to change a law or just decide not to enforce it?
Do you reject the fact the DOL issued saying that only around 62% of those between the ages of 16 and 65 are employed, the lowest in over thirty years?
It is naïve to think the bickering and fighting in congress is real. It is similar to wrestling, they know the outcome before it starts but they are damn good at looking like they are beating the crap out of each other. Does any one wonder why being a senator or a representative is a full time job? A government the size it should be and laws written as they should be would reduce the need for them to be on duty in D.C. to a few weeks each year. They now refer to their position as a career that would end if not elected for another term.
There is no constitutional provision nor statute that explicitly permits executive orders. The term "executive power" Article II, Section 1, Clause 1 of the Constitution, refers to the title of President as the executive. He is instructed therein by the declaration "take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed" made in Article II, Section 3, Clause 5, else he faces impeachment.
"What gives Obama the right to change the AHA law as written and passed?"
The very same Constitution that gives him the power of the Executive Order, handed to every other President of this nation, and that has been used by every other President.
Nothing gives the president the authority to change a law nor does it provide the authority to not enforce a law. However, it does appear he believes his statement, I am the president I can do anything I want to. He has about convinced me he can since no one in congress is willing to challenge him and he just keeps on doing whatever he wakes up and thinks about.
What gives Obama the right to change the AHA law as written and passed? Why are both parties in congress not insisting that the law be enacted as written and passed. The full impact of the AHA will now not be known until late 2016 or later. That is not a good thing if it is good for people or if it is not.
