Re: “Raúl Grijalva Wants to Update the Supplemental Security Income Program

Grijalva has a good idea once in a while. If we have SSI we should make it work to get people out of poverty, not keep them in.

Re: “McSally Supports Abortion Ban After 20 Weeks; Grijalva, Kirkpatrick Oppose Bill

Organs growing outside the body and still force the mother to go through the birth? Republicans are incredibly cruel, at least toward women. Of course this is just the tip of the iceberg. They want to ban all abortion and birth control.

Re: “Undocumented Parents Protest Block to Obama's DAPA Program on Day They Were Supposed to Start Applying

One solution is to eliminate birthright citizenship. There is no reason children of illegal immigrants should receive citizenship. No other industrial country in the world does this.
Second, of course, if laws had been enforced in the first place they would not have immigrated illegally and wouldn't find themselves in this bind.

Re: “The Douglas-Ducey-Board Plot Thickens

Here in Wyoming people are also fighting the "common core" idea which is really not thinking about the success of students nation wide. The idea behind common core is so when kids move from one district to another they aren't behind anywhere else. Seems to me like it would be a good idea, especially for those in the armed forces or maybe those migrant workers out there.

Re: “McSally Supports Abortion Ban After 20 Weeks; Grijalva, Kirkpatrick Oppose Bill

It really is funny how Republicans do play that whole card of less government, until it goes against their personal beliefs, then they want to impose their belief system on everyone. The first thing out of any conservative when you disagree with them is "You must be a lib." I am now going to start telling them "Yep just like Jesus was."

I wish McSally's parents would have believed in abortion. (Not really but it was fun to say.)

Unable or unwilling? Wait until she has to talk to the IRS at tax time.

Re: “The Douglas-Ducey-Board Plot Thickens

The tragedy in all this nonsense, is that the benefit to local school districts, and their students' achievements have no place or consideration in this fight.

17 years here, yet she's unable to speak to the press in English?

Re: “Undocumented Parents Protest Block to Obama's DAPA Program on Day They Were Supposed to Start Applying

Now see, if she'd bothered taking the steps to become a citizen in the 17 years since she's been here doing God knows what instead, she'd have a say in this. See how that works? (in theory, anyway) I can see having sympathy for the kids who were brought here by their parents, but the parents knowingly broke laws and now expect to be rewarded. Are these really the best and the brightest?

Re: “McSally Supports Abortion Ban After 20 Weeks; Grijalva, Kirkpatrick Oppose Bill

McSally “believes in the dignity of life while ensuring protections for women who are victims of rape or incest and in cases when the life of the mother is threatened.”

Typical anti-choice mealy mouthed republican bullsh*t...

Republicans are all about "small government" but want "LARGE GOVERNMENT" poking their noses into people's personal lives...

HYPOCRITES!

(And ACTUALLY, I don't believe McSally BELIEVES anything -- she's a space filling drone without an independent thought doing whatever the republican "leadership" tells her to do)

Re: “McSally Supports Abortion Ban After 20 Weeks; Grijalva, Kirkpatrick Oppose Bill

Will someone please explain why abortion is so important. You people wanted this 'free' birth control and got it. Why not use it? There are more than one option to choose from.

I want to move to Phoenix......I am a bird watcher, and I have never seen a wacko-bird. Sounds like the city is full of them.
