Don't we need to make it a law before we can repeal it?

Wiki "The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA)[1][2] is a United States federal statute that was signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010." called Obamacare

Agree 100%. The Supreme Court ruled that no state can have more stringent requirements for Reps and Senators than the Constitution specifies. It will require an amendment, therefore, to facilitate term limits. I don't think we can count on the incumbents to raise the issue, so a national referendum is the only recourse; it has to appear on the ballot in a national general election. How do we go about this?

The Supreme Court decision equating monetary donations to politicians/causes with "speech".

The special sales tax districts!

At least we need big signs letting us know where they are!

I am not fond of the tax/representation system imposed on us by the Crown, but I would rally like the law about housing British soldiers repealed.

The ruinous george w. bush, trickle on you tax cuts. Have not produced the promised jobs in the 10 years since passage and ballooned the federal debt.

scottie, the current regime has been adding to the debt at a much faster rate than the previous administration. But don't let the facts get in the way of your narrative. http://wizbangblog.com/2011/08/24/obama-bush-was-irresponsible-and-unpatriotic-for-adding-to-the-national-debt/

I wish there was a LJWorld law that prevented people from making every article comments section into a political argument.

Seat belt laws.

If I'm driving in my own car, alone, and I don't wear a seat belt, it's a "victimless crime." Nobody is harmed or endangered except myself. Victimless crimes, such as seat belt laws, are unconstitutional under at least one state constitution. (New Hampshire) They should be unconstitutional under the Kansas state constitution.

Disobeying the seatbelt law is not a victimless crime. Remember this? http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2010/jul...

Go back and read my post. The accident you reference involved a woman with two children in the car. I have no problem with child seat laws or seat belts for minors. My post clearly said if I am driving alone, it is a victimless crime. BTW, I always choose to wear my seat belt. The law requiring it for an adult driving alone creates the victimless crime.

Repeal the Patriot Act and Bush Tax Cuts.

Repealing the Bush tax cuts would be a tax cut for the greater majority of middle class taxpayers because the wealthy would start paying their own way.

Repeal any type of law that supports off short stashing of cash.

Repealing the tax break that supports outsourcing american jobs which would create more tax revenue for the USA which could support IMPROVED Medicare Single Payer Insurance for ALL. This would be great use of tax dollars. Not only could a huge majority of americans breathe a sigh of relief USA business across the board might begin hiring USA workers again.

What the heck why not let our tax dollars pay for our medical insurance so we are covered 24/7 no matter what.

I'd like to be able to pee in public.

Ghostie 5 years ago

I'm convinced that the ban on peeing in public was a law enacted by women who were jealous that they couldn't easily pee outside.

Well aren't they all insane? I mean it's a requirement for any American politician to profess faith in the supernatural. Kinda convenient really. Like that fool Romney saying he "goes down on his knees before Gawd" when he needs guidance. Crazy.

Repeal the Energy Policy Act of 2005. It is a very bad bill which is full of corrupt back door dealings by porkaholics. It created a lot of huge problems in our economy that most people are not yet fully comprehending.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy_Policy_Act_of_2005

The guy who sponsored this bill is now a big shot in the Tea Party and, not surprising, a Texas right wing politician.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Barton

Sadly, a lot of Democrats went along with this bill, including Obama who probably thought it was a reasonable compromise at the time.

If you are concerned about the future of our US food supply and relying on a few gigantic International Agribusinesses to feed you then maybe you should read this report by the Industrial College of the Armed Forces.

Get educated, get real and get politically involved. Get rid of incompetent politicians.

I have to pick just ONE? Can't choose. Better tactic ... defund Government, forcing us all to start thinking about what we really need Government to be doing, and what we ought to be doing for ourselves, and letting those programs that don't make the cut wither and die. (psst! That's what is starting to happen)
