Even though in the U.S., March 2014 was the coldest one since 2002, warm temperatures around the globe broke records.

Nope. Teatards don't ever admit they were wrong. Any facts that contradict their fantasies are simply ignored.

#Republicans  do not understand our country's system of justice, and in fact actively campaign against it.
The Republican Party wants you to know that, if you want to run for office some day, you better not believe that everyone is entitled to legal counsel before they are locked up for a crime that they may not have committed.

Quote of the day

David Atkins:

"We know that climate change is real and manmade. This is not a subject for serious dispute among knowledgeable people. The only reason it has become such a contentious issue is that the Republican Party and its media machinery have chosen to betray the trust of their loyal demographic constituencies for raw financial and ideological gain. They have turned the world's most pressing and consequential problem into just another tribal marker in the endless partisan war.

"That goes beyond petty politics and the perpetual fight over resource allocation. That comes perilously close to a crime against humanity."

Reminder:

#Republicans  lie.

That's what they do.

That's all they know.

"Global warming denialists like to say that global warming stopped in 1998. Is it true? No. The warming trend continues. To understand this, one needs to understand that there is a difference between weather and climate. Weather is short term and climate is long term. The long term trend is clear. We are continuing to warm."

"They decided to require all insurers to offer the same type of coverage in the plans they sold off the exchange as those they sold on it. The end result is that none of the state’s insurers offered out-of-network coverage for individuals, an effort to keep their costs down. The downside for consumers there is that they’re restricted to providers. The upside for consumers is that this means their premiums are greatly reduced: “Individual premiums for Manhattan residents, for instance, dropped from $1,534 for a standard health maintenance organization, or H.M.O., in 2013 to $621 for a comparable exchange plan now.”

"New York has always had some of the highest insurance premiums in the country.  A rate cut by half in an incredible feat.  Then, depending on each circumstance, insurance premiums will be even lower after subsidies."
