here is a list of all the things in the budget.
I really like the one that puts a clamp on the EPA clean water act over-reach.
They are making the very same arguments they did in the 90's when the housing bubble issue became suddenly very expanded. I recall the debate here, to follow suit at relaxing regulations, and hearing all these wonderful arguments and to a degree believed them. We had a very conservative opposition leader at the time who fought the measure full tilt and got it before a Royal Commission, which recommended Canada TIGHTEN its regulations, and went further but denied investment credits for derivative investments of any %.
Today, nearly seven years later, the US is showing signs of restoration, but thousands of people have been sent into poverty by the losses in their personal investments. Meanwhile, Canada never was in 'recession', did not need to bail anyone out, and the nation has prospered. The Canadian banking system is now envied globally, it's architect, the then Governor of the Bank of Canada is now heading up European banking and sorting out the socialist damage.
The moral is, greed triumphs over recent experience.

I only have time for one post tres, and you're the lucky choice.
With limited time, try PoliticoHeadlines.com and you'll find all the stories folks are quoting/linking.
To further trash DEMs, Wasserman-Schultz is on the sell-out side with Biden, Obama and Reid.
Standing with Sarah palin against bank giveaways are DCCC chair Israel, Cummings, Warren and of course Pelosi.
I'm actually enjoying this--the Pelosi--DWS war.
GOP public dissent is mostly muted due to the silent whipping of McConnell.
Look for the GOP fissures to reopen next year when hard-core CONs want pay-back on Obama from Boehner/McConnell.
Boehner/McConnell want a productive term, keeping their majorities after the 2016 election .

Text of H.R.5230 as Placed on Calendar Senate: Secure the Southwest Border Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2014... OpenCongress
(1) improve border security;
(2) enforce laws and policies to stem the flow of illegal entries into the United States;
(3) enact laws and implement new policies to stem the flow of illegal entries into the United States, including increasing penalties for human smuggling;
(4) conduct public outreach campaigns to explain the dangers of the journey to the Southwest Border of the United States, emphasize the lack of immigration benefits available, and emphasize that illegal aliens will be removed to their country;
(5) cooperate with United States Federal agencies to facilitate and expedite the return, repatriation, and reintegration of illegal migrants arriving at the Southwest Border
I also remember Senator Thune of S. Dakota trying to get an amendment to the Immigration Bill that came out of the Senate that would have done the same thing. But the Democrats would have none of it.
Oh well, now we have the Republicans funding Obama's E.O. Amnesty. Just marvelous!
This is simply part of the GOP messaging war that the DEMs lost in the 2014 election.
This one on Warren started as soon as she was elected, just as the one on Holder started in 2009 after his appointment--so many more examples.
I don't see a let-up here as long as American voters continue to listen to these messaging wars and not the messages/issues .

Good day to you too.
Messaging is part of politics...Liberals do it too...Probably more effectively than Repubs could ever hope to...But the point is that Warren is nothing special, and to see how some react when she is called out on a blatant move of not only hypocrisy, but sheer political dumb assery, they fret how anyone could impeach her impeccable creds...It makes me retch...Nothing about her speaks integrity. At all.
You said "there's no way to determine one way or the other her ancestry" yet she did claim she knew she was native American when filling in the applications.
As often happens, it's not the lie as much as the denials and the cover-up that does the harm.
