    Justice Department attorneys argued that notice on a bulletin board posted about two hours before the committee meeting was to start last Wednesday was sufficient under rules of the Senate.

    The judge said DOJ couldn't show the committee was exempt from the 24-hour notice requirement. She said Ozanne could ultimately win the case and ordered Secretary of State Doug La Follette to hold off on publishing the law the last step before it can take effect. La Follette had planned to publish the law on March 25."

    But that's only because Republicans in Congress didn't care about the tax cuts for you or me (unless you are uber wealthy) - so, of course, it was the right thing to do.

    Try as you may, you aren't going to be allowed to ignore the fact that Republicans vowed to turn down any legislation unless the "sacred" tax cuts for the wealthy were included!

    McConnell said that Senate Republicans would simply refuse to work on other measures until the current Bush tax cuts and other federal funding issues were resolved.
    But what McConnell and his fellow Republicans did not say is that the Bush tax cuts are not necessary for the government to continue operations or funding, nor did they say that the tax cuts that the Republicans particularly support are those that continue to enhance the bank accounts of America's most wealthy income earners while adding nearly $800 billion to the federal debt over the next decade.

    It's obvious that someone is AFRAID of debating one-on-one - he may have to do more than repeat the same things over and over. Most of us have figured this out from experience!

    45% Approve of the job he is doing while 54% disapprove. That doesn't bode well for re-election. Guess those against him are paying attention to the actual results where you only pay attention to the rhetoric.
    These polls mean nothing when it comes to election time - so dream on conservative. The Gee Oh Pee has nothing that can beat Obama. Bring on Donald Trump. lol

    You do not even know who is going to be running against him. How do you know it would not be more stupid to vote for the other guys (or girls)?

    Wouldn't an intelligent person wait to see who was in the running???

    Right, polls don't matter but results do. You seem to have no interest in results but continue to buy the Obama rhetoric. 15 million unemployed Americans, less employed today than when he took office, debt created will exceed Bush's at the end of fiscal year 2011, meager economic growth, the worst performance in history two years after a recession, the Middle East on fire, no leadership skills. The President isn't a contestent on American Idol so stop treating him like one by voting for him because you like him personally. He lacks leadership skills and the results are a disaster.

    Catawba, you show a lot of people the insight into an Obama supporter and how you are still in awe of the Obama mystique and rhetoric that ignore the results. Leadership skills, economic and foreign relations results, his individual actions don't matter at all because in your world your perception is reality.

    it's a violation of federal law; but why is it any more a violation of the workers' rights than making membership in a union a condition of employment. if a workplace says "if you work here, you can't organize into a union" then that is no more or less coercive than them saying, "if you work here, you must organize into a union."

    what exactly is this post supposed to prove?
    the utter implausibility of your claims that janitors and bus drivers are coming in with more than $100 million in small amounts of cash and giving it to their unions cause they just like them.
