We knew it from polls dating back to the Bush Administration which indicated the majority of Americans supported the Public Option for health care reform, Medicare cannot be politically, eliminated. Why Rep. Paul Ryan and the GOP chose to ignore that public reality, and put forth and pass a Republican bill in the House to get rid of Medicare in favor of a voucher private sector system, can only be answered with one word, Ideology.

OBL - Deceased

America celebrates tonight the delivery of justice upon the head of Osama bin Laden, leader of al-Queda which perpetrated the 9/11/2001 attacks upon American soil by way of hijacked airliners. Osama Bin Laden and his company had a choice, surrender or fight. They chose to fight, and, that was the last decision bin Laden will ever make, thanks to the chain of command from Pres. Obama all the way down to the Navy Seals and other American military personnel who assumed the risks of apprehending Osama bin Laden in his residence.
