"We don't have a system currently that does a decent job of separating who is dangerous and who isn't," Murray says. "We only have a system that separates those who have cash and those who don't." Tim Murray, director of the Pretrial Justice Institute

Where is the outrage over former President Bush's use of "excessive" executive orders? Where is the outrage over former President Regan's use of "excessive" executive orders? Former President Nixon? Former President Ford? This constructed outrage from the GOP is clearly partisan politics and their record of obstruction in Congress and their willingness to use taxpayer money to pursue this folly, painfully shows why they should not be in office and should be voted out as soon as possible.
“You notice that he didn't specifically say what exactly he was objecting to. I'm not going to apologize for trying to do something while they're doing nothing." President Obama

"Nothing in the Affordable Care Act requires an employer to eliminate health coverage for any employees or penalizes an employer for offering health coverage to all employees. An employer that eliminates health coverage is doing so by choice, not by requirement." Erin Donar, spokeswoman, Treasury Department

“The analogy I'd draw is the following: You go to a doctor, who diagnoses an ailment and proscribes drugs and surgery. The diagnosis, however, turns out to be disastrously wrong and as a result, the drugs and surgery leave you crippled for years to come. Are you going to go back to that same doctor to diagnose your next illness? No, you aren't. In fact, you probably sued him/her for malpractice after the first go-round. Unfortunately, we can't sue Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Rice, Feith and the others for malpractice. But we can stop listening to them.” Jonathan Landay

"You know, I didn’t really think about it. Because—and I think this is one of the challenges women face—we don’t think about salary enough," Obama said. "When I got hired in my firm, I was grateful. There wasn’t even a thought of negotiating at all. I thought I was there to do a good job."
