    "McConnell said, “After so many years of sluggish growth, we’re finally starting to see some economic data that can provide a glimmer of hope. The uptick appears to coincide with the biggest political change of the Obama administration’s long tenure in Washington: The expectation of a new republican congress.”"

    I submit the following without further comment. The republican war on science will do lasting damage to this country.

    Summary: H.R.1422 — 113th Congress (2013-2014)

    Shown Here:
    Reported to House amended (07/22/2013)

    EPA Science Advisory Board Reform Act of 2013 - Amends the Environmental Research, Development, and Demonstration Authorization Act of 1978 to revise the process of selecting members of the Science Advisory Board, guidelines for participation in Board advisory activities, and terms of office. (The Board provides scientific advice to the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency [EPA].) Prohibits federally registered lobbyists from being appointed to the Board.

    Revises the procedures for providing advice and comments to the Administrator by: (1) including risk or hazard assessments in the regulatory proposals and documents made available to the Board, and (2) requiring advice and comments to be included in the record regarding any such proposal and published in the Federal Register.

    Revises the operation of Board member committees and investigative panels to: (1) require that they operate in accordance with the membership, participation, and policy requirements (including new requirements for public participation in advisory activities of the Board) contained in this Act; (2) deny them authority to make decisions on behalf of the Board; and (3) prohibit direct reporting to EPA.

    Adds guidelines for the conduct of Board advisory activities, including concerning: (1) avoidance of making policy determinations or recommendations, (2) communication of uncertainties, (3) dissenting members' views, and (4) periodic reviews to ensure that such activities address the most important scientific issues affecting EPA.

    Prohibits this Act from being construed as supplanting the requirements of the Federal Advisory Committee Act or the Ethics in Government Act of 1978.

    I think the Dems should allow the cut to Social Security to be voted on in the House and Senate.

    I wonder how seniors would vote in 2016.

    Those Wall Street bankers are struggling under the heavy burden of government regulations. Good thing the GOP wants to help them out.

    From Rep. Foxx:

    The House will also consider the Regulatory Accountability Act to address abuse of the regulatory process at federal agencies and legislation to roll back several excesses in regulators' implementation of the Dodd-Frank Act.

    Excesses...lol They've got some grand priorities.

Beyonce and Jay Z are orders of magnitude more popular than Huckabee and there's no booming, under served market that he can monetize by bagging on them.

    Speaking of losers, heard that Romney is telling people he's running again.

    I thought Ann ruled that out?!??1

    Mitt is the Martha Coakley of the GOP right now

    Get that Romney doesn't like Christie and thinks he could beat him easily, but doesn't seem wise for him to take on the Bush clan directly. Mitt may want to freeze potential Jeb and Christie donors, but don't see a path to the nomination for Mitt if Jeb runs. If Jeb gets in, he's not bailing until after Florida and Mitt can't win the nomination at the convention since the GOP base hates him. Jeb, Mitt, and Christie all running would be good news for Rand, Walker, and Kasich.

    Mitt may become the Harold Stassen of the 21st century.

    Is this where we should post Chris Christie blowing jerry jones pics that'll inevitably surface? Man, I know blue collar pubs from NJ that hate his jiggling guts now.
