The current GOP is hell bent on snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Their idiotic "War on the Tea Party" is a suicidal strategy that will keep the Ruling Elite Republicrats in office as a minority party forever. Oh, and a message to the NRSC - GET BENT!!!!
Talk about spewing talking points. Only in liberal La-La Land would the expansion of Medicare not cost anything. There is no "Free"lunch. You said it yourself(in spin talk) "All they did was to close the gap on overpayments and hospitals agreed to payment reductions knowing they’ll have more patients and less of the issue for absorbing the costs of those who can’t pay (those with no insurance)." Translation Physicians, healthcare clinicians and hospitals will take significant financial hits.

I read both the University of Missouri article and the abstract in the Journal. The study was done after a spill and points out elevated levels of certain EDC's. That may or may not be hazardous, neither article mentioned the levels of EDC's other than in vague terms such as "moderate". Also, there were many too many qualifiers such as may, could, possibly and might to call this conclusive damnation of the entire process of Fracking. "The water samples from drilling sites had higher levels of EDC activity that could interfere with the body’s response to androgens, a class of hormones that includes testosterone, as well as the reproductive hormone estrogen. Drilling site water samples had moderate to high levels of EDC activity, and samples from the Colorado River – the drainage basin for the natural gas drilling sites – had moderate levels. In comparison, little activity was measured in the water samples from the sites with little drilling." On the other hand it certainly does not clear the industry. The fact there were spills and these chemicals were found in some degree should be troubling to everyone. Other studies have shown little or no contamination around drilling sites. Bottom line: WE need to IMMEDIATELY improve our containment processes and continue to study to see if theses chemicals show up in and around sites that have not had spills.

There is a middle ground between "Drill Baby Drill" and "no Fracking, No Where, No Time". Fracking is a tremendously important technology to America's future. Like ALL technology it has its' set of risks and rewards. Just like solar, wind, hydro and nuclear. When one thinks, as opposed to knee jerk, about what technology does bring to overall well being the absence of technology also has its own set of risk rewards. Mention has been made to the MU study published in the Journal of the Endocrinological Society
So, the inside the Beltway advice for republicrats is to embrace another "Moderate" in the Dole, McCain, Romney tradition. A couple of problems with that. Exit polling shows Christie getting his clock cleaned by Hillary. Christie is a democrat in everything but title. Nominate him and I will happily vote Libertarian in 2016.

Absolutely change the name to reflect the culture of the area. The new name should be the Washington Parasites, their logo would be a coiled tapeworm.
