A scorecard separating fact from fiction

"The average cost for health insurance in Florida went from about $600 a month for an individual to about $150 a month."

Charlie Crist

Overall, Floridians would have paid less taxes

Rubio’s tax swap proposal "would have been a massive tax increase."

Marco Rubio

Very close on target

"Since that famous day in February where the governor campaigned with Barack Obama on behalf of the stimulus program, 211,000 Floridians have lost their jobs."

Marco Rubio

Fresh off the news, he’s right

"Just this week we received the news that for the first time Social Security is now paying out more in benefits than it’s taking in. That was something that was supposed to happen in 2016."

Marco Rubio

Not what the record shows

Did not vote for tax increases as a member of the West Miami City Commission.

Kendrick Meek

Bashing "ObamaCare" doesn’t equal ditching health care biz entirely

"Marco Rubio thinks that government shouldn’t be in the health care business at all."

Charlie Crist

2004 was a good year

Marco Rubio’s "income skyrocketed while his power increased."

Charlie Crist

But that’s barely a dent of the uninsured

In Cover Florida "thousands already enrolled and climbing."

Marco Rubio

Back to the back wax

The Associated Press called Charlie Crist’s attacks "over the top," "out of context," and "not true."

Kathy Castor

Yes, the only Florida Democrat

Says she was the “the only Democrat who voted against the Wall Street bailout."


Castro on Obama

Posted: March 26, 2010 by The STR in NEWS & LOCAL NEWS

Fidel Castro isn’t much of a fan of Barack Obama ("a fanatical believer in the imperialist capitalist system imposed by the United States on the world"), but he has some moderately nice things to say about the health care bill in the Cuban state-run paper Granma:

We believe that the health reform has been an important battle, and a success of his government. It would seem, however, to be something truly unusual, 234 years after the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia in 1776, inspired by the ideas of the French encyclopedists, that the U.S. government has passed [a law for] medical attention for the vast majority of its citizens, something that Cuba achieved for its entire population half a century ago, despite the cruel and inhumane blockade imposed and still in effect by the most powerful country that ever existed.

Democrats — Boyd, Y; Brown, Corrine, Y; Castor, Y; Grayson, Y; Hastings, Y; Klein, Y; Kosmas, Y; Meek, Y; Wasserman Schultz, Y.

Republicans — Bilirakis, N; Brown-Waite, Ginny, N; Buchanan, N; Crenshaw, N; Diaz-Balart, L., N; Diaz-Balart, M., N; Mack, N; Mica, N; Miller, N; Posey, N; Putnam, N; Rooney, N; Ros-Lehtinen, N; Stearns, N; Young, N.

If I am not mistaken this has to be presented to the senate after Obama signs the health care bill just passed by the House of Representatives. I serious doubt you will see the same out come in the Senate as you did in the House of The Representatives. With Scott Brown tipping the scale the Republicans now have filibuster power.

For those of you who are half ignorant on terms used by your very own government here is what filibuster means: *Filibuster is used only in the Senate, to delay or prevent a vote by time-consuming talk. It can be stopped only by a 60-member vote of the senators present and voting.

As I stated in paragraph one Scott Brown’s election to the US Senate from Massachusetts really upset the balance of power, that is why Obama tried to have this passed prior to Brown’s being sworn in. Now that the Dems has lost their 60 votes needed to BLOCK a filibuster. You can expect to see the Republicans MOST likely use this glorious technique yet again and block Obamacare for good.

There are few things I really want to address.

1) I talked to Steven Bravo and no longer will we grace the name rev420 live on air. No longer will we talk about the dirt dobber, we want it to be known that we refuse to give out free advertisements, pay us hoes.

2) It has been brought to my attention that there is some speculation regarding the current co-host for The STR. As of today @ 12:10 PM EST Patty P. is still the co-host of The STR there will be no other.

Well thank you for mentioning Patty in your wonderful blog about absolutely nothing. Let me explain something to you and this is how I feel and no one else ok. I for one could care less about your mother’s problems in her “real” life. This is the internet get over it and lighten the hell up, the pictures pulled and used in that bit was not any Live Video user. As stated in the broadcast early on. Now I will not sit here and say that your mother was not compared to one as was I “Steven Bravo” as was Bryan Fry & Patty P. was even compared to a picture. Take the time to take your head out of your ass and breathe once in your miserable pathetic peon life and realize that most of the people on ANY social broadcasting platform can distinguish the difference between the internet and reality.

Now before you go and cry about this or cry about that wanting sympathy for whatever new illness has dramatically stricken your hypochondriac ass realize that your poor mother was only mentioned in someone’s opinion. Oh wait left up to you and the rest of the frauds you run and vibe “hang” with (Excluding Bry of Fry) their would be no opinions other then your own. So do us all a damn favor and turn your damn computer off and stop sitting there waiting for sympathy calls and messages.
