    Jeff,

    No sense complaining about it, it is the law now. Interesting how Bobby J. is positioning himself the last week. 2016 anyone?

  • Jeff

    Preibus is seeking another term as RNC chair??? http://politi.co/RI1udJ

    He presided over a HUGE loss in the last election, echoed a horrible multiple campaign messages, called the President a liar, and failed to win in a climate where an incumbent should of lost. Debbie Wassermann Shultz who gets criticized by the righties makes him look like a huge loser by comparison.

    I hope the righty keeps him on!!

  • Jeff

    Roger Ailes explains his point of veiw of the embarrassing Karl Rove meltdown during the OBAMA election night victory.

    Great Read! Love that Ailes left the network as he saw the swing states go to President Obama one by one by one. Then when he saw Rove make a fool out of himself and Fox News he quickly called in a panic!!!

    “I’m not lifting a finger,” Maine Gov. Paul LePage told Bloomberg this week. “We’re not going to get involved. We’re going to let Mr. Obama do a federal exchange. It’s his bill.”

    Yeah, that sure sounds like they’re embracing it, Jeff.

    Gotta love the liberal twist.

    —————————
    RED STATE GOVERNORS (Jindal, Perry, Kashich) ARE EMBRACING OBAMACARE, seems the idiots at Papa Johns and other cheap-o CEO’s are going to fold eventually as well, like a cheap suit.

    http://politi.co/S0PfKT
    —————————-
    They have 2 options

    1. Take control of Obamacare for the state

    2. Refuse to do anything about it and let the Federal Government assume control.

    They basically choose option 2, which is weird since all 3 claim to be States rights type guys and they basically handing over control to the Federal Government. lol

    I don’t think it’s “embracing” as opposed to being idiots trying to make a point. If you live in a state that has a good health care system(say like Wisconsin) you probably want to do everything possible to add to it and have control of it. Now on the flip side for a state like Louisiana whose health care system isn’t as good, it might not hurt having the Federal Government take control

    I found this funny

    Confederacy of the Takers

    President Barack Obama’s opponents have unwittingly come up with a brilliant plan to avoid the “fiscal cliff.” They want to secede from the union.

    If Obama were serious about being a good steward of the nation’s finances, he’d let them.

    The White House, in one of those astro-turf efforts that make people feel warm about small-d democracy, launched a “We the People” program on its website last year, allowing Americans to petition their government for a redress of grievances. Any petition that receives 25,000 or more signatures within 30 days is promised a response (though not necessarily a favorable one) from the Obama administration.

    And so a large number of patriotic Americans, mostly from states won by Mitt Romney last week, have petitioned the White House to let them secede. They should be careful about what they wish for. It would be excellent financial news for those of us left behind if Obama were to grant a number of the rebel states their wish “to withdraw from the United States and create (their) own NEW government” (the petitions emphasize “new” by capitalizing it).

    Red states receive, on average, far more from the federal government in expenditures than they pay in taxes. The balance is the opposite in blue states. The secession petitions, therefore, give the opportunity to create what would be, in a fiscal sense, a far more perfect union.

    Among those states with large numbers of petitioners asking out: Louisiana (more than 28,000 signatures at midday Tuesday), which gets about $1.45 in federal largess for every $1 it pays in taxes; Alabama (more than 20,000 signatures), which takes $1.71 for every $1 it puts in; South Carolina (26,000), which takes $1.38 for its dollar; and Missouri (22,000), which takes $1.29 for its dollar.

    What would be left is a Confederacy of Takers, including relatively poor states such as Alaska, West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi.

    One of the few would-be Confederacy members that pays more than it receives is Texas, which because of oil money is close to break-even at 94 cents of benefits for its tax dollar. (The statistics, from an analysis of tax and revenue data by the nonpartisan Tax Foundation, were published in 2006, but the broad pattern doesn’t vary much over time.)

    Depending on how aggressive a fiscal hawk he wishes to be, Obama could also try to offload onto the Confederacy of the Takers North and South Dakota and Montana ($1.73, $1.49 and $1.58 in benefits, respectively), but this would probably only work if Canada agreed to allow overflight rights for American aircraft to reach the West Coast states of Washington, Oregon and California (88 cents, 97 cents and 79 cents on their tax dollars, respectively).

  • TZCA

    To a states’ rights advocate, a federally mandated Health Care Reform is a violation of the states’ rights, but it has been declared Constitutional and therefore is now law. The federal government says ‘each state must establish an insurance exchange … in the case the state does not establish such an exchange, a federal exchange will be set forth in its place,’ and the liberals want to to say that its the state giving up its rights to turn around and tell the federal government, ‘Ok, it’s your law, you do it.’ Good lord, I can only imagine what the liberals think the states’ rights and federalist arguments are all about.

  • Mark

    TZCA

    Simple fact is it’s law, deal with it. You can either take the money from the Government(which ALL states do for one program or another yet I don’t see Republican Governors bitch about that stuff) and put your stamp on it or allow Government complete control of the program. A smart Governor will realize that he is probably better served taking the cash like he does for many other programs(they don’t bitch about) to maximize the use of that money.

    *******

    Excellent evasion from the states’ rights argument.

    As I already acknowledged in an earlier post, it is law. I will deal with it for long as I am required, but I will not simply shut up about it.

    There is a difference between taking federal cash, and allowing the federal government to set up a federal insurance exchange.

    And in regards to all that cash the ‘red states’ take from the federal government, how much of that money is federally guaranteed subsidies going to state distribution offices for things like, uhm, agriculture, or, uhm, corn based ethanol.

  • TZCA

    ^ ?

    The federal food and drug administration sets mandates for how farmers (now corporate entities) are to utilize their lands to allow interstate sales of their produce and in return offer subsidies. Take away the mandates, then maybe there wouldn’t be need for all the federal money, and maybe in the very unlikely secession of these states, the blue states can grow all their own food.

    Gotta love the liberal twist.

    ——————————
    Their is many programs the Federal Government invest in such as ones you listed, plus jobs programs, infrastructure, military contractors, etc. That doesn’t change the fact that their are certain states that benefit off the Federal Government programs more then others in terms of amount of Federal Tax Dollars given to the Government compared to percentage given back

    As Mitt Romney would say certain states would be classified as “makers”(ie give more money they they take) and others would be “takers”(take more money then they make) and in general(but not in the case of all states) their is many states that seem to benefit more off of Federally subsidized programs(as listed above)and they have a higher amount of people bitching how the government sucks.

  • Mark

    For everybody in a Taker states, if you truly have a problem with Federal Government wasting money I beg you to go to your State legislators and Governor and beg them not to take any Federal Subsidies that go over the amount of cash you pay into the system. As the old saying goes politics always begins at home.

  • TZCA

    And in regards to federal cash going toward general welfare for things like medicare, medicaid, and social security, many of the ‘red states’ have a large retirement population because the ‘red states’ generally have lower taxes and retirees want to maximize their retirement income by retiring in these states.

    In general, I agree with this statement. The problem is that the governments (state and especially federal) are so ‘big and powerful’ that there is much to be gained by lobbying them. ‘We the people’ have become ‘We the sheeple’ who vote on soundbites and partisanship and we are limited to the party selection of the elites in both parties.

    —————————–
    Fair enough that those are Federal government programs that are counted as part of Federal Spending, BUT as both me and you pointed out earlier their is many other Federal programs that get lumped under Federal Spending.

    In General what i see is 2 types of States that take more then the give

    1. The states that have low populations compared to area of land they control(ie Montana, Wyoming, Alaska, etc). In general these will look bad on paper when you look at the percentage but compared to bigger populated states it’s practically nothing when you look at actual dollars they receive.

    2. Weapons Manufacturers States. A large portion of the Federal budget is wasted on weapons, and they have to be produced somewhere. I know alot of people use the reason we need to invest in defense because of all the jobs but I say we get more bang(ie jobs) for the buck putting 100B into education, police, infrastructure or fire fighters then Bombs and Guns

    *******

    This is an error. These mandates come from the USDA, not the FDA. The government is so big, I forget who does what. I think the government forgets who does what too.

  • TZCA

    @Mark

    I’m not against spending on our ‘Armed Forces’ for the sake of national defense, but I am disgusted with how much waste there is into our ‘military complex’; all those contractors who charge $150 for a toilet seat as the joke goes.

    You mention ‘infrastructure’ and this, along with national defense, is one of those top-of-the-list things for me. If the government is to spend my money, I want it going to infrastructure. Bombs go boom and offer no return on investment other than ‘peace through threat of war’, but streets, sewers, water supply, and electric grid all offer return on investment.

  • TZCA

    @Mark

    “Trains and Bridges” is not one of those Obama agenda items I laugh at; unfortunately too many Conservatives (or maybe just ‘Republicans’) do.

    “2 years ago, on this site, i pointed out that this site TVByTheNumbers clearly stated that total viewer numbers were the most important. soon after i pointed this out, this site erased that claim from their “numbers 101? section. wonder what ever changed that.”

    That is an insane conspiracy theory. Bill and Robert set up this site under the very principle that demo viewership is the most important and almost entirely the only metric used to measure ratings success as this is what advertisers and networks use to come up with ad rates.

    The demo in prime time programming is 18-49
    and
    in news is 25-54.

    All other viewers tend to be used as PR talking points most of the time.

    I read Numbers 101 multiple times over the years and I can assure you that there was never an assertion there that stated total viewer numbers were the most important.

    Perhaps Bill and Robert could clear this up.
