To pay for these children the schools are forced to cancel all kinds of after school programs. band, theater, and sports which have huge positive impacts on our kids futures. The kids are turned loose at 2:30 - 3:30 with no activities and nowhere to go except to get in trouble. We are destroying our own kids futures and teaching them to not respect law.
Another example of political dirty tricks - it is time we demand some moral fiber and constitutional respect from our elected and appointed officials.. All Americans should be outraged at this use of our legal system.
What will our President do when ISIS surrounds ,barricades and cuts off water and electricity to Baghdad? What kind of a "humanitarian crisis will this be? Maybe we can save them with airdrops? Oh yes, and what will he do when Russia moves into the Ukraine? Maybe a Twitter and Face Book campaign? The worst is yet to come!

We live in an upside down world - Remember the old saying, "sticks and stones will break my bones, but names can never hurt me"? I guess now, hurt feelings are worse than hurt bodies....and the penalties for using wrong words are greater than for physical crimes.

The fact is the list has been released against our privacy laws and the only ones being punished are the citizens who had freely exercised their free speech rights. 1-2% of our population is intimidating the rest of us. This is not about tolerance; it is about incredible intolerance

The most disturbing portion of this is that the list of doners was illegally released by the IRS. Who at the IRS did this and what is / has / will happen to them and to prevent this?
It is called "rule of law" Mr. VP, and you are required to follow and support the law. Telling people who have broken our laws that they are in fact citizens and entitled to benefits by our VP is beyond belief. What has happened to our country?
Insurance, by definition, is to protect against unknown and unpredictable events. The choice to use or not use birth control has nothing to do with insurance. Including birth control in mandatory health insurance is like including oil changes and new tires as part of car insurance. It is not insurance; it is pre-paid maintenance and not a taxpayer/government responsibility.

When I was young and on a salary, I worked extra hard and long to show my commitment to moving up the corporate ladder. Now that the Government has changed the rules how will this affect the work environment, ethics and motivations of young aggressive workers looking to get ahead?
The problem is that many or most of the people affected don't actually have families as we traditionally think of them so spending time with them is not possible. It just means more time hanging out and looking for "stuff" to get into.
