    This house speaker is a sycophant for all the religious, right wing lunatics. He is no economic conservative. That is just a facade to cover up his support for the fundamentalist retards.

    I think the lengths Boner, his buddies and Baggers are going to are self defeating and they are about to backfire because they're taking things way too far right, the public is waking up to getting way more than they voted for, but little in the line of job creation. the pendulum will start swinging back to the middle, indeed I think its already begun.

    While I disagree with continuing to defend the law. (Does the US government really have to appeal every loss until it reaches the Supreme Court?) I can follow the logic of the DOJ funding the continued defense. That is the federal governments legal department, and if the department isn't going to defend it, and the work will be outsourced, then the funding should originate from the same department.

    /I still don't think it should be defended.
    //It will be hilarious when the outcome of the case is the same at the appeals level.
