Martin cleared the air today about the Republican Party's single-minded and relentless fight against the Affordable Care Act.
Heritage was strongly in favor of the principle behind the Affordable Care Act before it was strongly against it--all because of the president.

Martin I hope you find somewhere else to ply your wonderful and insightful view of the world of politics. You my friend are a one of a kind. What has attracted you to me was what finally caught up to you, you told the truth. It is a rare commodity that's difficult to speak these days when you have to handle the multi-national corporate obstacle course that's will always be put in place to stifle the truth. I understand the difficulty of exercising protocol talking about Sarah Palin (who I don't think her name has a need to be mentioned in the first place) when she evokes the base response to everything she says. I wish you the very best and will always be thankful for enlightening me on so many subjects. This door closed but believe me something will open bigger because you are diamond that will never be thrown away. Stay focus!!

Joy Reid cleared the air today about whether or not former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist can woo Florida voters in 2014 when he runs for governor as a Democrat.
Republican politics has shown the danger of purity tests. If Crist can win, would Democrats be smarter to embrace the convert rather than risk losing?

Martin cleared the air today on the Republican Party's need for a lesson on charity when it comes to their hearings and votes to defund the Affordable Care Act. 
Despite the appearance of dysfunction, the GOP has in fact found a reason to exist, and it all centers on their opposition to the Affordable Care Act.
