"A liberal is someone who feels a great debt to his fellow man, which debt he proposes to pay off with your money."

"CONGRESS approved all these changes that effect people, but you don't understand that."

Show us. It was the EPA that did it, not Congress. Can you list the Republicans who voted against coal?

In FACT, Republicans tried to restrict the EPA's efforts to take away the Appalachian jobs (Bill H.R. 4348, “Surface Transportation Extension Act, Part II”).

I know you deliberately limit factual news, but try this on:

dailycaller(dot)com/2013/09/11/war-on-coal-heats-up-as-congress-gets-back-in-session/

"I bet this selfish crew is bitterly against this:"

Again, if you don't turn over your earnings to the government, you are selfish. Do you understand how outragious you sound?

It has already been reported that enrollment for Medicaid is way up, while folks applying for Obamacare, that they have to pay for, is almost nonexistant.

It is real easy to spend other people's money, isn't it?

Fox FULL heartedly apologized. Did MSNBC?

"Christians find a way to help the poor instead of ridiculing them."

You say all poor are so due to evil corporations. I stand by any of my comments about the poor. If you have a problem with any of them, let me know.

" intolerant people always call it race baiting when they are called out for the implications and code words you throw out there."

Code words? That sounds like liberal talking points. What code words are you talking about?

"Those people are victims of the same political BS that goes on all over the country."

They are victims of environemtal activists and your president, who openly said he would kill their jobs. Why can't you admit that?

I bet this selfish crew is bitterly against this:

Gov. John Kasich's administration got approval from Washington in October to extend Medicaid eligibility to those with incomes up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level -- or $15,856 for an individual. A legislative panel cleared the way for its funding about three weeks ago. Ohio state officials said Wednesday that people can start enrolling in the expanded program on Dec. 9. Coverage starts Jan. 1. Roughly 366,000 Ohioans would be newly eligible under the extension beginning in 2014. Some have sought to get enrolled but have been left in limbo while the state adjusts its system to begin taking new people.

Hagrid - It was CBS, a liberal news agency, who made the mistake, not Fox.

FIX NEWS AND FIX CONGRESSMEN RAN WITH IT while CBS half heartedly apologized.

You also answered your own question about your money. No one said give all your money to anyone, but Christians find a way to help the poor instead of ridiculing them. Perhaps if the country moves to back to the principle of a Christian, our congress will take on that mindset. For V-MAN intolerant people always call it race baiting when they are called out for the implications and code words you throw out there. How do classify the people of Appalachia? Those people are victims of the same political BS that goes on all over the country. CONGRESS approved all these changes that effect people, but you don't understand that. You say they make the laws, so hold them accountable for the laws they make.

EB, why do you keep insisting that one can't have Christian values unless they sit idly by while the government takes their hard earned money?

"He also borrowed money during this time, his surplus was actually money borrowed at a greater amount to give the appearance of having a surplus."

Clinton's "surplus" was a projection, not real dollars. Viewers of Fox News, the New York Times, and ABC news, know that. It was based on unrealistic spending restrictions and deferred debt. Folks who get their news elswhere were lied to. They should not keep promoting the lie.

It was CBS, a liberal news agency, who made the mistake, not Fox. I'm not sure why you didn't mention MSNBC and other liberal news agencies who also ran CBS's story.

Can you tell us why?

Tayd - Respectfully, I do not care how many time Core has been banned here. I feel a few others should have been banned as well, but this is a forum and would prefer people to communicate more respectfully.

CBS, like fox should be held accountable as well as CONGRESS for running with unverified information. Some are so desperate for the smoking gun, that they take anything and run with it because the American people are so gullible and will believe a lie or misinformation. The networks pay their people to report the truth..well some stations while others get paid distorting the truth.

Echo said. "Its funny how people attack Core when they run out of rambling. Whether you like it or not, ACA is here. For the Benghazi group, CBS had to publically apologize for bogus reporting which desperate republicans and fox news jumped on and now look foolish. So gents, who will be your 2016 pick? Will it be a wing nut tea bagger or Christie?"

EB you may not have been around long enough to know core's history. Core has been banned several times under different names. Even others that have the same ideology as his have condemned his actions. There is no doubt in my mind that he will be banned again. CBS supposedly a trusted news source did not vet the story. Others trusting CBS repeated the story. It is not their fault CBS dropped the ball. They should have known better after Dan Rather lied about president Bush.

Pew Research ----- "Obama’s job ratings on the economy have been more negative than positive for more than four years, but the current measure is the worst of his presidency. Just 31% approve of the way Obama is handling the economy, while 65% disapprove.

Only about one-in-five independents (21%) give Obama positive marks on the economy, while 75% disapprove. About a third of Democrats (34%) disapprove of the way Obama is handling the economy (64% approve).

Obama also gets negative ratings on health care policy (37% approve, 59% disapprove). In January, views of Obama’s handling of health care policy were mixed (45% approved, 47% disapproved)."

Rhetoric vs. reality

The Obamacare Web site doesn’t work. Hundreds of thousands of insured Americans are seeing their plans summarily terminated. Millions more face the same prospect next year. Confronted with a crisis of governance, how does President Obama respond?

He campaigns.

I decided to fact-check some of your accusations, Mr. Bardone. The first I googled was regarding your “The national park superintendent testified before Congress that the White House told him to make the government shutdown as painful as possible.” I found no evidence to support your claim and countless sites that reported that during the hearing, Mr. Jarvis(NPS Director) specifically said the Park Service gave no orders, nor received any from the White House, to make shutdown closures intentionally painful or visible. Perhaps you are…ahh…mis-informed?

Panicked Senate Democrats to Obama: Get Your Act Together

newsmax(dot)com/Newsfront/senate-democrats-obama-healthcare/2013/11/08/id/535613

Panic is growing among Senate Democrats facing re-election next year that the disastrous roll-out of Obamacare could prove to be the final nail in the coffin of their Washington careers. Several, including Sen. Mary Landrieu of La., have set a tight deadline for the president to fix the problems.

Long before a nuclear deal was in reach, the U.S. was quietly lifting some of the financial pressure on Iran, according to a Daily Beast investigation.
