I have to stop watching the news. My blood Pressure is fine and after watching the news my blood pressure is boiling. Forty one times the House talked about  Obama Care. They have gone mad.
Outside the windows of the House ,people were marching for Immigration reform. the Senate has passed a bill. Normally its the house  goes first but this a broken Congress. The Affordable care act must be poison to these folks. Its as if we have forced them to become Democrats.
I have worked on many projects overseas. I can see I was wrong, I have my site which will soon start accepting donations. Lets pick one project in this this country and fix it. We need to invade America. When My attorney says start accepting money, watch me.
We can vote on which bridge, road, or new school needs building. I have a friend in Salem, Oregon who took some of his own money, raised more and opened a charter school.I  have seen it and its beautiful. He is 75 years old.
We need to stop waiting on Congress to do anything except yell at each other.
Think of it! While the Congress yells, we are doing positive things to put this Country back together. Call me crazy but I am ready to challenge anyone to show me where I am wrong.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    callers to a local radio show were claiming that "Dr Laura" stated today that beginning in January, 2014 under the ACA, VA hospitals would no longer employ physicians and would fire those currently employed to replace them with NPs and PAs.

    I did not hear the original broadcast but the evident claims made about how ACA would affect VA hospitals and their administration seem to be jacked up.  Do you have any idea what these people are talking about?

      Vet63 won't respond to your question. His posts are hit and run pleas for attention.

      His profile states he was born in 1949. If his name implies he is a veteran from 1963 that means he entered the military at the ripe old age of 14. He also claims to have placed 'hundreds' of bodies in body bags. A claim I thoroughly doubt could be made by anyone who served.

      I found no info on doctors being eliminated from VA facilities, a move with serious liability problems, but I did find this from the VA website.

        nonetheless, every plea seems to have an aspect or two that succeeds in making me uncomfortable.

        here we have disjointed meandering that wallows into its "just you wait" promise to emulate his venture capital fellow and start his own charter school, a promise which, if in earnest, could only succeed in assisting in the slaughter of the public school system, while stealing tax dollars to fund the corporate-entitlement salaries of for-profit school owners and their appointed buddies.

        that, and the vague yelling-off-the-back-porch-into-the-woods libertarian anti-gubmint vibe.

        It could imply that he is a 63 year old vet.  I am a vet who was born the same year and I just turned 64.
