I always thought the D was for Draging the Middle Class down and the R was for Raceing to save whats left of this Country before it goes Communist.

How much dignity is there in supporting social programs that encourage children to bring new life into this world that they cannot support? How much dignity is in opening health care up to all so there will be panels to determine who will not get served, and who will? The hinted at Death review panel. I don't see much dignity in either Politicians, regardless of party, as they seem to be in it for themselves, their families and their friends, including the friends that bought and paid for them. How many Politicians do you know of on a National level that their Children, step chlidren and even Grand Children do not have extremely good jobs?

That is not so much a death review panel or "death board" that determines the worthiness of individuals to receive care. In June of 2010, a candidate for U.S. Congress said that under the new health care law, the elderly would be denied care when they have "passed the age limit for treatment" and of course the news media jumped on it. (and of couse he was wrong) The Department of Health and Human Services, which oversees Medicare, can confirm that it has no age limit for treatment. Also, the law states that if a certain treatment for the elderly isn't effective, it "may not be construed as mandates, guidelines, or recommendations for payment, coverage, or treatment or used to deny coverage." The law is sometimes hard to understand because of the way it is written but if one takes their time you can figure it out. You have a representative in Congress, call his office and tell them you want a copy of the new health care law. It is what they are paid for. They are working for you. If there is something you don't understand demand an explanation. It is why they are there. It is YOUR government. YOU are the PEOPLE...It is FOR YOU. And above all, when you hear something that is bad and wrong, check it out..and if it is true...be mad, be mad as hell and do something about it. And above all....have a nice day.

You are advising that we contact Sanford Bishop's office?...and, better yet, expect a coherent answer? Bawhawhawhaw! Let me know how that works out for you!

Yes, and when you do and don't get a decent reply, then come back here and squawk about it and make his office staff look like idiots and then squawk about it in his Washington office, squawk about it everywhere you can, and keep it up, until you have exhausted every avenue and at least made it known that maybe in some small way your voice was heard and that you did make a difference. If more people would do it and keep it up and not give up maybe we could eventually make a difference. I won't give up. I have been kicking azz and taking names for over 50 years and I will give up the day they scatter my ashes over the the mighty Alps. I have won a few and lost some but I won't ever give up.

I am not a Democrat, but that Squawk was effing Hilarious! However, since it was from a Democrat in Albany, I doubt it was original...

the last "R" in the white house was the worst "R" in the history of this country!!! He is the one who RUINED this country, and the current "D" has been trying to fix this mess after 8 years of "R-style" garbage policy and unnecessary war. But he can get no-where with a "R" congress who is sick in the head and holds this country hostage by voting against everything to move this country forward. So, get your head out of your behind......The President can do nothing without a cooperative congress.....stop whining, and call your congressman......

case closed!

D is for Dem Democratic votors who don't pay taxes, R is for Rep's who have to practically raise those same Democrats by paying taxes to support welfare, food stamps and other freebies for people who do not want to work.

I Refuse to be influenced strictly by an "R" or a "D" as it relates to party, race, sex or religeous preference. I Definitely don't like the Direction we are headed but I will not vote strictly upon basis of "R" or "D" like too many in this country do. I don't like the liberal agenda any more than I like the extreme right. The left claims to be a champion of the poor but then they make a Decision with Regards to the oil pipeline from Canada that kills the poor by making sure we Don't have better access to cheaper oil in order to placate the environmentalists who are anything but poor. The extreme Right spews vitriol Refusing to even consider for a short time to Raise taxes in order to help balance the budget.

If we're going to play semantic games - here's one.

The last four letters of American is "I can". The last four letters of Republican is "I can". The last four letters of Democrats is "rats".

Romney has no plan to change/help this country. His campaign is strictly to bash Obama. He has no agenda of his own. Electing someone just because they can criticize others is dumb.

Voting for someone just because of the color of their skin is even dumber.
