13 Democrats Charged With Embezzling $16 Million In Federal Grants For AIDS Charities And Other Needy Programs! Daughter of Reverend “God*****America” Wright Among Those Charged.

Quinshaunta R. Golden, former Illinois Department of Public Health chief of staff. Charges: Bribery/theft, mail fraud and obstruction of justice. Details: Golden, a niece of U.S. Rep. Danny K. Davis (D-Ill.), is accused of pocketing about $433,000 in kickbacks on health department contracts and grants that she oversaw.

These and other Dems are accused of stealing the money for personal use including mortgage and credit-card payments, vacation home payments, and in one case, a Mercedes-Benz, a Cadillac and a fur coat.

Thank god the Democrats are taking over the entire health care system country wide! They’re so trustworthy.

Hello Capricorn, it may bother me indeed. It does not surprise me but yep, it is likely quite unfair.. never fear, perhaps the 41st time house republicans try to veto this law will be the one that works. More likely, it will be yet another exercise in futility by our fiscally conservative republican legislators.. yep, that's an oxymoron. Off to Wegmans..

Buff, does it not trouble you that our representatives have exempted themselves from this so called excellent legislation? I find that fact alone not only unfair, but completely unethical.

Excellent letter, folks.. to parse the tax comment, could not the same argument be made for any tax on business? As anything, taxes, increases in rent, the costs are ultimately passed on to consumers..

Chuck it has nothing to do with hating Obama. It has everything to do with opposing legislation that the majority of Americans are opposed to and that was forced upon us. Time will allow you to see this more clearly if you allow yourself to see the facts for what they are without being blinded by party loyalty.

Yes, another liberal idiot who thinks taxing manufacturers means consumers will not pay more.

Just as the original letter lost credibility for delineating the taxable items incorrectly, this letter has lost credibility due to its clear lack of economic understanding.

Ritty, I agree. I think her letter lost all credibility after that one statement.

"These taxes will all be paid by manufacturers and importers, not consumers."

Drink.
