So Boehner is stepping down
« on: September 25, 2015, 01:53:02 PM »
Interesting.    He should have stepped down LONG ago, but the timing isn't very condusive to the current political climate surrouding the GOP candidates.  One wonders if he just said "enough", I'm done with this

He is tired of being threatened by the goofy teabaggers.
His replacement could be worse.

It is what has said. He does not want to shut down the government over Planned parenthood, the the 'baggers do. They were plotting against him.

What who said?

News Flash, the Tea Party is not pushing for the shut down of anything.  Given that the House passed legislation that FUNDS ALL THE GOVERNMENT, simply doesn't cover all aspects of 1 of a gazillion Government sponsored agencies, the only one shutting down anything would be the veto pen of President my way or the highway

No the Democrats want to shut down Gvt over Planned Parenthood.

Why is Planned Parenthood even needed anymore?
according to Planned Parenthood only a fraction of their business is abortion.
they supposedly provide women's healthcare
So doesn't Obamacare cover women's healthcare?
if ObamaCare does not cover women's health issues...then is ObamaCare a "war on women"?

Hopefully we can get some real fighters that punch back and know how to fight. Why should we lose every battle when we control the House, Senate, and Supreme Court? It's a disgrace we have allowed that to happen. We need people that know how to fight as dirty as the Taxocrats!

Both played the political game, far too much.  Saying one thing to appease the base of the party, then doing something to simply "get along", when the Dems would throw a temper tantrum.  In some perverted way, they believed they could get Democrats, the media, and even thier base to "like them", if they literally caved on issue, after issue, after issue.  They never saw it as caving of course, they saw it as "compromise".  However compromise to Democrats is simply doing it their way....just not as fast, but still doing it their way. 

Pop Quiz.......When's the last time the Democrats ever compromised on an issue that was favorable towards a conservative cause?

That's a serious question, by the way

Planned Parenthood does lots of good. No, Obamacare does not provide what Planned Parenthood does.

The Teabaggers have stated they want to shut down the government again.

Boehner refused to cooperate with them. He got tired of those jackasses and so he quit.


There is no reason to cooperate with the antediluvan reactionary you call "Conservatives". They are assholes .

I think President Obama is doing a great job! He refuses to be a lame duck!

Planned Parenthood does lots of good.

In the same sense , the fascists did many good things.

Why do we forget all the good done by the fascist governments of the 1930s?

Probably unfair to allow a large bunch of innocent deaths to overshadow the better activity.

LIke anything. Not everyone has Obamacare, to start with.
Planned Parenthood provides information on family planning, it does mammograms and offers free services that insurance does not.

BINGO.......not to mention that again, it wouldn't be the Tea Party shutting down anything, since the whole of Government is funded.  Merely 1, and ONLY 1 of a bazillion organizations is not being fully funded, and Obama would shut the Government down over that 1 tiniest of a program

Notice also how no one could come up with the last time the Democrats "caved" on anything.  THAT's why Boehner has been shown the door

Planned Parenthood..................... does mammograms.......................


Really?

I recently saw a report that they did not.

I will look.

Quote
Women can’t walk into a Planned Parenthood clinic and get a mammogram on the spot. The clinics don’t have mammography equipment. Planned Parenthood performs gynecological exams, including breast exams, and refers women to other facilities to have mammograms performed, much like women are referred to radiological centers by their gynecologists or primary care physicians.
http://www.factcheck.org/2012/10/planned-parenthood-and-mammograms/
Quote
Cancer screening and prevention services — which would include breast exams — made up 14.5 percent of all medical services. Abortion made up 3 percent, with 329,445 abortion procedures in 2010.

..................
Planned Parenthood says it served about 3 million people in 2010. That would mean about 25 percent of its clients received a breast exam or breast care, or about 1 in 4. About 11 percent of clients, or 1 in 9, received abortion services. Contraception services and STD testing and treatment totaled well over 3 million for each category.
