    Hmmm, I wonder where I’ve heard that name before? That’s right he’s the Senator from Montana that worked feverishly to jam O-care down our collective throats consequences be damned. He’s also managed to get so many exemptions; ie., ‘waivers’ post the passage of this bill that for all practical purposes many will get health care gratis without any of the indignities suffered by the rest us us under the bill nationwide. He’s instrumental in engineering a socialist nightmare then proceeds to accomodate seemingly every corporation that has deep pockets enough to ‘convince’ HHS for a waiver. Nice guy…huh? / : |

    Same old schtick with this trade bill; I.E rush the bill through then deal with the flaws later! We need another trade treaty with a bunch of ‘basket and pottery’ makers like we need a hole in the head.

    What U.S. industries plan on offshoring their plants to Columbia next? Other than coffee and cocaine I can’t imagine anything Columbia can offer the U.S. We’ve already spent a fortune sending drug interdiction teams into the country working in a “joint ops fashion” with the Columbian military and have so since the Reagan era with little results other than…the beat goes on while our Treasury is drained…! : (
