re: GOP lost when they renamed Ryan SOH - UAFanFromNOLA
[quote]So the 208 other Republican House members should acquiesce to the desires of 29 Representatives who are so devoid of ideas their best plan came from a Senator? Great plan. [/quote]It is a dumb plan but it's what they tried to do. ...

re: GOP lost when they renamed Ryan SOH - UAFanFromNOLA
[quote]You realize the HFC isn't even a majority of House republicans? Why the frick do you think they should run things? [/quote]Because they are?

re: GOP lost when they renamed Ryan SOH - UAFanFromNOLA
Well yeah. He hasn't had to seriously put any major legislation together in his entire time in Congress. Most congressmen haven't. The House and Senate leadership put together the budget shortly before Ryan took over as Speaker so that he didn't have to do it. ...

[quote]For Louisiana in 2019, the state's share will be over $300 million.[/quote]First off, please cite this. Every resource I've seen says the same thing which is that it will cost $300 million over 5 years which is 0.2% of our state's budget. Second, spending that money to ensure your populat...

re: Trump will not enforce individual mandate; no fines - UAFanFromNOLA
[quote]The mandate pisses me off to no end, but without it, won't the burden be shifted to those who do have care?[/quote]Yes. This also was why the Medicaid expansion was important to the law and it was mind numbing that some governors turned down free money to make a political point. If poor peopl...

re: Trump will not enforce individual mandate; no fines - UAFanFromNOLA
[quote]Strategically that's a huge win for Trump[/quote]How? That makes literally no sense. Rates will rise as a direct result of the first thing he did in office. I just don't see how you could possibly spin that in a good way. ...

re: Trump speaking in front of wall to CIA - UAFanFromNOLA
Having a speech in front of the wall is not a bad thing, and it would be similar to having a speech in front of Arlington Cemetery. Having a speech in front of the wall and then going on discuss yourself and your war with the media is extremely disrespectful to the people who gave their lives throug...
