“At an October 19, 1998 conference at Loyola University, Barack Obama spoke against “propaganda” that said government doesn’t work and the need to “pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution.”
“Republican leaders on Capitol Hill are vowing to overturn the new birth control rule issued by the Obama Administration. CBS News Congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes reports.”

“In recent days, Americans of every faith and political persuasion have mobilized in objection to a rule put forward by the Obama Administration that constitutes an unambiguous attack on religious freedom in our country.
“This rule would require faith-based employers — including Catholic charities, schools, universities, and hospitals — to provide services they believe are immoral. Those services include sterilization, abortion-inducing drugs and devices, and contraception.
“In imposing this requirement, the federal government has drifted dangerously beyond its constitutional boundaries, encroaching on religious freedom in a manner that affects millions of Americans and harms some of our nation’s most vital institutions.
“If the president does not reverse the Department’s attack on religious freedom, then the Congress, acting on behalf of the American people and the Constitution we are sworn to uphold and defend, must.
“The House will approach this matter fairly and deliberately, through regular order and the appropriate legislative channels.
“Because it has primary jurisdiction on the issues involved, the Energy & Commerce Committee is taking the lead on the legislative process that will be necessary to enact an effective and appropriate solution. Chairman Upton convened a hearing last year and began laying the groundwork for legislative action when this flawed rule was first proposed. I welcome his efforts to consider all possible options as his committee proceeds with its work.
“This attack by the federal government on religious freedom in our country must not stand, and will not stand.”

……And this national saga continues.
“The backlash continues to grow against a new federal law that requires all employers to pay for health insurance that includes birth control. Archbishop Timothy Dolan speaks to the “CBS This Morning” co-hosts about the controversy.”
And this backlash will continue to grow, not just by those who are Catholic, but Christians, other faith groups, and people of good will who DO NOT WANT to see the United States Constitution tramped down even further.

This year for the first time in a very long time, I will not be watching or listening to the State of the Union speech that will be given by President Barack Hussein Obama.
The reason being is that in this, President Obama’s speech tonight will be nothing more than promises he can never, ever keep. Plus now President Obama has a record he cannot run on and be able to win re-election. Plus also as the saying goes, President Obama not only has “broken” this nation, my country, the United States of America, but NOW, he must OWN UP TO IT THAT HE HAS TO KEEP IT.
Plus also President Obama has to own up to the fact that he has created an even deeper division among Americans that has created a new class warfare reality.
Rather tonight, I will be reading and praying, or at least listening to some good conservative talk radio or good music. Plus this decision will be a help to my blood pressure.
“Washington (CNN) — House Republicans will hold a conference call at 5 p.m. Thursday amid indications of a possible deal to extend the payroll tax cut before it expires on January 1, a top Republican source has told CNN.
The development comes hours after Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, called for a short-term extension of the tax holiday as part of a compromise, increasing pressure on House GOP leaders to end their resistance to such a step.
House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, initially rejected Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s call, releasing a statement that reiterated his call for negotiators to craft an immediate one-year tax cut extension — something now considered unlikely by most congressional observers.
With nine days until the payroll tax cut is set to expire, bringing a tax increase averaging $1,000 for American workers, the ongoing impasse pitting the House Republican leadership against the White House, congressional Democrats and fellow Republicans is the kind of political gamesmanship that Americans dislike about Congress, President Barack Obama said Thursday.”
“Jon S. Corzine, the former U.S. senator and New Jersey governor who presided over the collapse of the commodities brokerage MF Global, says he cannot explain what happened to “many hundreds of millions of dollars” that the firm was holding for customers.
“For five years, Jon Corzine embodied one of the most prestigious positions in Washington: U.S. senator. On Thursday, he is scheduled to return to Capitol Hill in a humbled and humiliating role: a star witness likely to invoke the Fifth Amendment. (Dec. 8)”
