The GOP are deadbeats and Tea Party members are still trying to damage our full faith and credit with the world, 'Because they don't know any better". To spite 'expert opinion"...To TP idiots, 'shutting down the country is cool'...
They're IDIOTS! When do their blind followers wake up and realize, the Tea Party is neither 'organic" or "right" and means to hurt even them!?.They are solely owned and operated by the Koch brother's to enslave the American people and pollute at will without fines.

Criminal's can't vote in many states but a criminal can get a gun in just about all states illegally due to lax gun laws. How do we get those assault weapons back?

That fact is wrong. More people are killed by guns in America then ALL THE SOLDIERS WHO HAVE DIED IN EVERY SINGLE WAR WE HAVE EVER FOUGHT IN!! That's a fact.

Conservative media lies to its audience because much of its audience wants to be lied to.

Campaign Finance Laws Fail as Corporate Money Floods Judicial Races

America: The Land of Corruption

This flood of campaign cash came from corporations, lawyers, and others with a stake in how these courts rule. Even in ostensibly nonpartisan races, political parties spent millions of dollars on candidates for courts currently considering lawsuits over redistricting maps. These perceived conflicts of interest will further erode public confidence in an impartial judiciary, which is already at an alarming low.

The Center for American Progress has compiled its recent reports describing the distorting influence of campaign cash and suggesting policy solutions to mitigate these problems. The first report, Million Dollar Judges, highlights several 2012 judicial elections illustrating how campaign finance laws have broken down in the face of unlimited independent spending. The next report, Big Business Taking Over State Supreme Courts, takes a broader view and illustrates how campaign cash has affected judges and the law over the past two decades. This compilation includes the text of the latter report and a summary of the data from its appendix.

The compilation concludes with a series of reports on different policies that could help mitigate the influence of corporate campaign cash in judicial elections. These reports are intended for advocates or legislators who want to ensure that our justice system works for everyone, not just for those with enough money to donate. Each report is prefaced by a one-page summary. Endnotes and citations are available in the longer versions that follow the summaries. Each report can be downloaded from:

Clinton was denied 50 judicial appointees by Congress, they have allowed even less Judicial appointments under Obama..They approved ALL of Bush's..(even the ones not qualified)..This insures they have Conservative's who allow Corp criminals and Bankers to keep walking out with no jail time.Remember on election day..STOP voting for criminals by electing GOP..they're the same thing really.We need a Congress to work and end their criminal games and gridlock.

More proof this GOP has no decency, no class, no respect for country, leaders or hard working women, and neither does Fox..(we knew that part already). Have they no shame?
