A Challenge to Christians Who Believe That The Message Of Jesus Is About Grace, Love, Integrity, and Peace for ALL.
The GOP-controlled House did approve, then later remove a bill, that would require rape victims who claimed a medical expense deduction for an abortion, to explain the deduction to the
IRS only if her return were audited for some other reason, and only if
medical expense deductions came into question.
Wrong on both points. Wisconsin has voted for the Democratic nominee in the last
seven presidential contests, but it is a frequent battleground state and far
from being an automatic in the Democratic column. State Government is Republican, but mixed. Unemployment dropped to near 6 percent, under Walker.
The exact opposite pattern has held for Wall Street donations during the
past three election cycles. In addition, Gohmert overstated his source's
percentages and ignored the difference between donations to Democratic
presidential candidates and congressional candidates.
County records show that he is a registered Republican and has been for
many years. His donations to Democrats took place two decades ago and
were modest even by the standards of that time.
As many as 400,000 Virginians could become eligible for Medicaid
under Obamacare, and the U.S. would pay their entire health care costs
But the $5 million-a-day figure comes from an old state estimate. Updated data shows loss of $3.5 million a day for the 2014 budget year, and about $4.5 million a day
during the following budget year.
Republicans are the ones who blocked an expansive veterans’ bill that included
funding for the same 27 new clinics that Cassidy and the House passed
Charts from Budget of the United States Government: Historical Tables Fiscal Year 2015
show spending by Bush increased 88%, while spending increased only 3.78% under Obama. Deficit increased to $1.4 trillion under Bush. Under Obama deficits have been reduced by about half to $.6 trillion. We have gone from losing around 850,000 jobs a month under Bush, to gaining over 200,000 jobs a month under Obama.
Presidents Reagan, Bush I, and Bush II all dealt with recessions by growing the government and increasing local and government jobs. But under Obama federal, state, and local government has
declined by more than half a million workers in the last three years.
Though Cruz insists he does not want a government shutdown, some of his Senate colleagues say that’s where his plan would end up.
The Pentagon has reported that Guantanamo’s cost comes down to about $3 million per detainee per year -- about 100 times the average annual cost of a federal prisoner
The truth is Obama has continuously encouraged working with police to find solutions and has also repeatedly emphasized the importance of law enforcement and the fact that police officers have a dangerous job.
The latest global oil production statistics back up Klobuchar’s claim.
The United States has been the world’s largest oil producer since late
The email is flat-out wrong when it blames Democrats, and Obamacare for
the increases. The bulk of the tax hikes stem from a different bill
entirely -- one that received support from a large majority of Senate
Republicans and a significant minority of House Republicans.
While in office, Bush repeatedly said that he opposed gay marriage,
although he was reluctant at times to amend the state Constitution since
it was already banned in state law. He also opposed gay adults adopting
children. Since leaving office, Bush said that he supports "traditional
Warner says women students on college campuses are more likely to be
sexually assaulted than their peers who don’t seek a higher education. The
researchers acknowledged shortcomings with their methodology and said
their conclusions were "suggestive."
In fact, Obama has on multiple occasions proposed changing the tax code
so that it complies with the "Buffett rule," which attempts to ensure
that high-income people pay a certain percentage of their income in
taxes that is at least higher than what middle-class people pay.
According to one measurement, the bottom 90 percent of American earners had a lower income in 2012 than they had 30 years ago.
She’s arguing that middle-class wages haven’t
increased enough over the past couple decades.
The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report confirms the amount
of money was spent on a variety of things between 2005 and 2009, and other news organizations revealed the actual names of the two men, but additional information is needed.
Statements were made in an interview
with Katie Couric for Yahoo News, saying Clinton's policies are "20th century relics." It was not clear what issues he considered relics. He opposes gay marriage, addressing climate
change, many women's issues.
"Even Adolph Hitler thought it more important than Obama to get to
Paris. (For all the wrong reasons.) Obama couldn't do it for right
reasons," Weber said in a tweet
, referring to Germany's occupation of Paris in 1940. White house says that presidential aides were caught off guard by the march’s massive size and attention, and there was no time to schedule security.
The House passed a $30 billion funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security, but added unrelated amendments to limit Obama's executive actions on immigration. Republicans have conceded that the bill can not pass in the Senate, yet they are willing to hold up Security funding in order to thwart immigration reform--then blame Democrats.
It’s safe to say around a million Texas adults fall into the coverage gap for making too little money to qualify for insurance subsidies and also remaining ineligible for Medicaid unless Texas expands access as encouraged by the Obamacare law and rejected by Perry and the state’s ruling Republicans.
There is no evidence there ever was a letter from Kennedy. Limbaugh’s
statement rests on a 1983 KGB memo that said there was a verbal overture from a friend of Kennedy's to meet with Andropov.
The truth is the big picture shows that any Republican candidate matched up against Clinton getting
approximately 40 percent of the votes.
Romney got it wrong when he spoke of all of her emails. 30,000 emails were turned over to the State Department.
Clinton did respond
to congressional subpoenas, and there is no proof she destroyed evidence
subject to a congressional investigation.
The monarchies of Saudi Arabia, Morocco and Oman have contributed to
the Clinton Foundation, but Yemen, which does not have a king, has not. The foundation did indeed receive money, not Clinton herself.
Cruz made a crass and poorly timed joke about Vice President Joe Biden on
Wednesday, days after Biden's son Beau died from brain cancer. "Vice President Joe Biden. You know the nice thing? You don't need a punch line," Cruz said.

participation, especially among minorities, the poor and younger voters,
who disproportionately cast their ballots for Democrats.
The numbers back Clinton up, but it’s worth noting that luck, timing and
several other factors in the broader economy also play a role in
determining stock market performance.
Hillary Clinton was defending herself against email allegations, when Bernie Sanders came to her rescue
. He not only demonstrated the decency that is the hallmark of his campaign, but also proved that he's no ordinary politician who doesn't want to win the White House if it means losing his integrity. He's willing to protect even his political rival if it's in the name of justice.
None of the three Democrats running have proposed raising taxes except of the very rich, and there is no reasonable evidence that they would. Hillary says she wants to raise taxes on only those making over $250,00 per year.
According to the study by PolitiFact, 62.7 percent of minimum wage workers age 16 and
older are women. That’s almost, but not quite, two thirds.
Democrats have lost a significant number of seats and federal and state
offices throughout the Obama administration. The party as a whole,
however, is stable or has grown both in terms of the electorate and its
PolitiFact couldn’t find any evidence of a "direct" relationship between climate
change and terrorism, though many reports have noted an indirect link.
There are, of course, many other factors that contribute to terrorism,
including religious and ethnic tensions and political repression.
No firm numbers exist for the number of veterans who have returned from
America’s most recent conflicts with post-traumatic stress disorder or
traumatic brain injuries, but Sanders’ claim of 500,000 does fall within
the range of estimates provided by the VA and other sources.
The numbers found by PolitiFact show that Democratic-led states recently received almost as
many refugees as -- and by some calculations, even more refugees than --
Republican-led states on a per capita basis.
Cruz misquoted a study
of voting registration of
all felons (not just violent felons) after being released from prison in three states. It does not address their political choice when committing the crime. Less than half registered to vote after release, and most of those were Democrats.
As of 2/1/16, PolitiFact evaluated 149 statements made by Hillary Clinton. Fifty Three percent were found to be true
or mostly true. Twenty Eight percent were found to be mostly false, or false. and only one
was pants on fire.
As of 2/1/16, PolitiFact evaluated
fifty two statements by Bernie Sanders. Fifty one percent were found to be true or mostly true. Seventeen percent were half true. Thirty percent were mostly false or false. and no statements ere found to be pants-on-fire.
That wasn't the case the first time Clinton claimed this. But now two
different terror groups have used Trump's words in propaganda videos. In one case jihadist propaganda, as reported by the Wall Street Journal
. urges American Muslims to leave the United States and join ISIS.
