Medical Malpractice and Republican Lies

Dick Durban sets Republicans straight on medical malpractice. He then asks those present if Federal health insurance and benefits are good enough for them, why aren't they good enough for the rest of the country?

I can answer that. If everyone was given the health insurance our congressional reps have.....someone, somewhere in the USA would be getting a benefit they don't deserve.

The US Spends Too Much on Foreign Aid

Ask any conservative and they will tell you that the USA spends too much on foreign aid. At 26 billion dollars, the US spends about twice as much as the United Kingdom or Germany. But the USA is a wealthy country, so where do we stand in amount of foreign aid as a percentage of GNP? Actually, not so great.

We Need Serious People

Remember the below quote? Seems pretty relevant to today's political gridlock.
We have serious problems to solve, and we need serious people to solve them. And whatever your particular problem is, I promise you, Bob Rumson is not the least bit interested in solving it. He is interested in two things and two things only: making you afraid of it and telling you who's to blame for it.
Just replace "Bob Rumson" with Mitch McConnell or John Boehner.
