    In effect it is politically in correct to stand up to Zionism !!!!

    We are not allowed to voice a counter opinion to our policy involving Israel without threat is the new norm

    In the United States it costs, on average, $12,000 to have a baby.

    In Finland it costs $60.

    We've got to end the disgrace of our profit-driven health care system and pass Medicare for all

    That's not what has happened the dozens of times Omar has done this.

    But you know that. But in order to protect the big D, you must defend antisemitism now

    Help me understand your stance (S)

    When the free market decides not to have a speaker on campus it is thwarting free speech. But when a duly elected member of Congress stands up to Israel --- it is anti-semitic spee


    Do you write anything lately that isnt a Trump applause line ?

    If I am wrong (dozens of times) tell me where

    and please dont say if I dont know I'm stupid
    I already have a wife

    Senator Sanders is discussing how to lower it.
    Yours or the AG Conservatives suggestion
    Or hasnt he given you one yet ?

    Do you realize you have become a close the barn door after the horse gets out kinda guy.

    In the years you have been here I have yet to see you advocate for a policy,
    Unless of course it is tax cutting of reduced spending --- or deregulation.

    Which isn't really a policy

    Your problem is you think the answer is always more government.

    How am I changing a subject? You directly brought up a very stupid point to which I addressed

    Illan Omar is an anti semite. You can criticize Israel, like Ron Paul and Justin Amash have done, without accusing people of dual loyalty or being bought and paid for by the jews

    There is a reason so many people have had to do damage control for her, including Nancy

    At least the Reps pulled King off all his committee assignments.

    But dems have shown over and over that racism doesn't matter on their side... how's the governor of VA doing these days?

    as opposed to more insurance industry or more pharmaceutical industry.
    At least at the Medicare for all we have some degree of input / oversight.
    Our elected officials assign representatives to decide rates. As opposed to a CEO or Board of Directors where the bottom line is rule

    How much input do we have with the insurance industry or pharmaceutical industry.
    Outside of pay the bill or get cut off ?

    Our family borned a baby with the best care in a great hospital for under $500 40 years ago

    There was a reason for ACA (2009-10) , Romneycare (2005ish) and Hillarycare (1994 ) before that.
    Did you know that Ted Kennedy turned down Nixon's offer for what we now call Medicare For All ?

    We tried getting around what the rest of the world has learned.
    We all put our money in a pot that is overseen by elected representatives and the costs are more affordable long and short term .
    Because profit is not raison d'etre

    we've had this discussion over the fact that the Semitic race knows no religion.

    Origins of Rep Omar. Different than you and I. Being 2nd generation myself, I can relate to a degree. Being Somalian from 1990 on is a whole nuther story.
    She has a different point of view. As do her constituant that in great part is who she is and whre she and her family come from
    Why not try to understand what she is saying and why before jumping on Trumps train.

    Omar was born on October 4, 1981, in Mogadishu[5] and spent her early years in Baydhabo, Somalia.[6][7] She was the youngest of seven siblings. Her father, Nur Omar Mohamed, a Somali, worked as a teacher trainer.[8] Her mother, Fadhuma Abukar Haji Hussein, was a Benadiri, and died when Omar was two.[9] She was thereafter raised by her father and grandfather.[10] Her grandfather, Abukar, was the director of Somalia's National Marine Transport, with her uncles and aunts also working as civil servants and educators.[8] After the start of Somali Civil War in 1991, she and her family fled the country and spent four years in a refugee camp in Kenya.[11]

    In 1995, Omar and her family's application to be resettled as refugees in the U.S. was approved, and they initially settled in Arlington, Virginia.[9][12] In 1995, they moved to Minneapolis, where she learned English. Her father worked initially as a taxi driver, later as a postal office worker.[9] He and Omar's grandfather emphasized during her upbringing the importance of democracy, and she accompanied her grandfather to caucus meetings at age 14, serving as his interpreter.[10][13] Omar became a U.S. citizen in 2000 when she was 17 years old.[14][9] She has spoken about being bullied for wearing a hijab during her time in Virginia, recalling classmates sticking gum on it, pushing her down stairs, and jumping her when changing for gym class.[9] Omar remembers her father's reaction to these incidents, "They are doing something to you because they feel threatened in some way by your existence.”[9]





    She has the constitutional right to question / criticize our policy vis a vis Israel

    Eliot Engel is a bit of a schmuck, I'm sorry to say. I'm not surprised this has blown up in his face.

    seriously have yet to see anything to back up any **** the right has said about Omar

    other than she is a muslim woman speaking hard truths about awful policies the far right conduct in Israel
    "If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin. It is a very great mistake to imagine that the object of loyalty is the authority and interest of one individual man, however dignified by the applause or enriched by the success of popular actions.” Samuel Adams

    “I am told everyday that I am anti-American if I am not pro-Israel," she tweeted Sunday. "I find that to be problematic and I am not alone.”

    She added, “My Americanness is questioned by the President and the @GOP on a daily basis, yet my colleagues remain silent."

    “I know what it means to be American and no one will ever tell me otherwise.”



    Me thinks Congressperson Omar is outta ****s to give


    As of March 4 Omar's " controversial " statements fall far short of the "dozens" one poster claimed
