      I watched most of the Gorsuch nomination hearings today. Holy cow. Hours upon hours of being grilled on the smallest details of trial law and case history. He was getting tired by the end. I would have been tired after the first hour. But good grief, they couldn’t catch him out even once. That man knows his stuff. Just nominate him already!!!!

        It’s because he knows his stuff that I’d guess many don’t want him. They want someone who blows with the political winds, but Gorsuch is so good that they can’t find a reason not to approve him. They’ve probably done vast and deep research into his personal life and background hoping to find something to use against him but have had no luck.

    The government needs to stay 100% out of health care.

    Mind your own business – stop ripping off the Good Americans trying to survive.

    Redistributing wealth via government controlled health insurance is criminal.

    Repeal – and DON’T Replace.

    That’s my 2 cents.

      That’s the feeling I get from the senator that was interviewed this afternoon,from Utah I think,they are going to do nothing other than repeal.

      I agree with you, but if they do that the Republicans and Trump are done. The public will vote them out the first chance they get. The majority of Americans expect their entitlements. Some want more than others but they still are wanted by the majority. With an aging population of baby boomers who are the largest segment of the populace, their aging is when their healthcare costs go through the roof and most people are not able to handle the cost of healthcare on their own. So, whether we like it or not, this issue could be the issue to sink not just the GOP, but Trump, too, if it isn’t handled the way the American people want. It’s too bad they have moved so fast. The American people expected it and Trump kept saying throughout the campaign that it would move fast, but that’s not the way to do this right. I hope this doesn’t go as bad as it looks like it might. And by bad I don’t mean that it will necessarily be bad, but I do think that most Americans expect huge price drops and won’t see it or understand why it’s not possible. Then they’ll hold it against Trump.

      We’ve voted for them for 4 cycles now to repeal 0bamacare. “Replacing” it has only come up since Trump.

        Why can’t we replace, effective in 12 months and then have 12 months to vote in the replacement? Everyone would be relived and they would have time to plan in more detail. This is an idea I heard on talk radio today

  15. The hearing for the Supreme Court nominee, Gorsuch is on Chanel 3 on the C-Span Radio App.
    If you have cut your cable you can still hear the words straight from the Senators and Repersenatives on the Senate and House floor and many of the committee hearings on the C-Span Radio App.
    Why let others filter your information?
    If you are interested in fake reasoning, false and trick thinking, how propaganda is used to deceive, the senate and house debate and floor speeches and and the Washington Journal morning call in show, at 7:00 AM ET, is the place you will hear every fallacy ever created.

    Failed to knockout Gorsuch on Hobby Lobby
    March 22, 2017

    Gorsuch replies:

    “We looked at the law and it says ‘any person with a sincerely held religious belief is basically protected except for strict scrutiny.’ What does ‘person’ mean in that statute? Congress didn’t define the term,” said Gorsuch.

    “So what does a judge do? A judge goes to the Dictionary Act … The Dictionary Act is an Act prescribed by Congress that defines terms when they aren’t otherwise defined. That’s what a good judge does.”
    *
    *
    “The position you’re advocating is a fine position,” Gorsuch responded. “It’s a respectable position. It’s a good position. It was adopted by precisely two justices of the Supreme Court.”

      You saw them building this narrative up in real time during the press briefing earlier today. Sean completely refuted the notion by pointing out that Nunes spoke to Paul Ryan and the media before even going to President Trump, but the media won’t report that.

    While driving home from work today I was listening to the Mark Levin Show. Rare event for me. I know he is controlled opposition and a NeverTrumper.

    He said CNN is reporting that the intel intercepts included information between and about Trump family members.

    And none of the transcripts that were disseminated were masked or redacted.

    I bet this is what Triump was referring to when he called Obama sick

    Article about Tillerson and his surprise at being asked to be Secretary of State and his acceptance at his wife’s encouragement.

    She wagged her finger and replied: ‘I told you God’s not through with you.’
    Tillerson, who will be 65 on Thursday, added that he had expected to retire after a career spanning four decades at ExxonMobil.
    ‘I was going to go to the ranch to be with my grandkids,’ he admitted.
    ‘I serve at the pleasure of the president. My wife convinced me. She was right. I’m supposed to do this.’

    Bill observing Obama’s birthday fails to pass Illinois legislature
    March 21, 2017

    (snipped)

    Illinois lawmakers failed to pass a measure in the legislature that would have made former President Barack Obama’s birthday a statewide holiday, according to the Chicago Tribune.

    …the Chicago Tribune said the proposal was six votes short of passing, where it would have next moved to the Illinois Senate.
    “The fourth day of August of each year shall be a legal holiday to be known as Barack Obama’s Birthday to be observed as a day on which to hold appropriate exercises in commemoration of our illustrious President. When August fourth shall fall on a Sunday, the following Monday shall be held and considered the holiday,” the text of the bill states.

    The bill to honor Obama’s birthday was initially filed by Illinois Rep. Sonya Harper on January 20.

    Despite its lack of support Tuesday, the bill might not be completely dead.
    According to the Chicago Tribune, should Harper find more backers, the legislature could reconsider the legislation.
    The statehouse is also looking at legislation that would honor Obama by designating I-294 the “President Barack Obama Tollway.”
