Kanjorski Isn't The Only One With The Gaffes

Obama orders NASA to Improve Relations With the Muslims? Why?? Former NASA Director Says Muslim Outreach Push 'Deeply Flawed' At least someone sees it right.

I thought job creation is the Number One priority in this country. That was yesterday.

Obama can't tackle immigration so he decided to tackle Arizona instead at the fifty yard line. Federal government files lawsuit against Arizona This action follows 34 illegal immigrants who were caught landing on the shores of California including 18 at Camp Pendelton.

He can't handle the BP Oil spill so he decides to take on the next two most important items on the country's agenda. What flawed thinking. But don't worry. Just when you think he's lost direction along comes Specter and Casey to save the day.

Our wounded veterans will be facing a tax on prosthetic limbs courtesy of Senators Robert Casey and Arlen Specter.

“On March 24, Senate Democrats had the opportunity to exempt our veterans from Obamacare’s new tax on medical devices such as prosthetic limbs. But 54 Democrats voted against the measure. They chose to side with the tax-and-spend crowd in Washington over our wounded warriors,”said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform. “This is one of the many reasons Harry Reid and the Democrats did not want Americans to read the 2,500 page health care bill before it was passed.”

In addition to those who served in Afghanistan and Iraq, the Department of Veterans Affairs reports the following number of veterans from America’s wars:

World War II: 2,079,000

Korean War: 2,507,000

Vietnam War: 7,569,000

Desert Shield/Storm: 2,254,000

Casey and Specter(Democrats) voted against Senator Orin Hatch's(Republican) attempt to remove the tax from the bill. The pair announced in December that they would support defense funding including the following appropriation.

• $1.6 million for KCF Technologies in Centre County develop a self-powered prosthetic limb to aid combat-injured veterans. (Specter, Casey, Thompson)

Did I read that right???
