NORFOLK - A retired attorney in Virginia Beach is so incensed that Republicans couldn´t repeal the Affordable Care Act he´s suing to get political donations back, accusing the GOP of fraud and racketeering. Bob Heghmann, 70, filed a lawsuit Thursday in U.S. District Court saying the national and Virginia Republican parties and some GOP leaders raised millions of dollars in campaign funds while knowing they weren´t going to be able to overturn the ACA, also known as Obamacare. The GOP "has been engaged in a pattern of Racketeering which involves massive fraud perpetrated on Republican voters and contributors as well

Comments:
Sorry, had to LOL! Wonder if this will get the attention of the Republicans, especially the elitist GOPe. Delightful to hear a patriotic voice from other than flyover country.

I don´t know how much Heghmann donated but I´d bet it wasn´t what the US Chamber of Commerce, Agri-business and others gave.
We have no voice.

How about the Democrat fraud and racketeering involved in the passage of Obamacare?

Democrats MUST have known that

* You would not be able to keep your plan and/or doctor if you liked them

* The cost curve would not bend down

* The average family would not save thousands of dollars in health care costs annually

* State and Federal Exchanges would not be available on time and be easy to use

* Health Care Insurers would not be able to continue to offer Obamacare-compliant plans and stay in business

Talk about fraud and racketeering!!

It´s time that the republicans are served tar and feathers. Ride them out of town on a rail. It is likely the only way to get their attention. I have attended three tea parties in DC, several local ones in SC and all I got for it is a lube job. How long do they think they can keep this up without the lid blowing off?
They will never listen without drastic action. Underscoring Mr. Heghmann´s contention of fraud is the fact the uniparty has set up the recess so PDT is unable to make recess appointments. They did this in spite of the fact that PDT carried many of them into office.

The fact is that insurance companies and drug companies are reaping huge profits from the ACA and those two business groups make huge donations to Congresspeople... why isn´t that racketeering! Fleecing the American people for profit!

Every Republican and Independent constituents who donated money to the RNC and to its political party should be sued for taking the money with the promise of REPEALING Obamacare. There´s a law against that and it´s called FRAUD or SCAM. Now, where do I send my money to SUE these low life scammers?

While I certainly "second that emotion": this is as much a waste of time (and insanity) as continuing to vote Republican. Not only the corrupt co-wing of the UniParty, but the corrupt courts as well.

We are past that point. Time for a new party.

So we should stick with the corrupt GOP, #17? What do you suggest?

The Tea Parties - plural, not singular - were (and are) poorly coordinated, had no effective vetting of leadership, were hamstrung by 501(c)3 regulations and IRS slow-walking, and were sidetracked by local issues like Agenda 21. A new, formal, 501(c)4 party would not be so encumbered. It could control its brand, vet its leaders, and even place restrictions on its membership. Remember: political parties are private organizations - including the GOP and Democrat wings of the UniParty.

I am glad somebody is stepping up to the plate and expecting accountability from elected officials.

I have long held the opinion that the donors watched Trump last year and saw the GOP and the DNC for the con artists they really are. Now they are going to be expecting some serious answers as to why they needed so much of the donor money to run campaigns. Trump won, beat 16 challengers, and paid out of pocket for most of the campaign.

I expect some uncomfortable and lean times are coming for the usual suspects and I could not be happier about it. Wealthy people don´t mind spending as long as they get a return of value. But they don´t like to be treated like fools, and that is what the elites have been doing for several decades now.

All the people should send their obamacare premium increase bills to McCain, Collins Murkowski. Let´s face it the republican party is in love with the big $$ donors & lobbyist, heck with the party & country.

Oberlin — With enthusiasm, the Oberlin City Council changed the second Monday in October from Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day. The unanimous vote for the resolution was anticipated, though it was not without opposition. Council voted about 8:15 p.m. Monday after nearly an hour of public comment from people for and against replacing the federally recognized holiday.

Thousands of anti-fascist protesters are marching through the streets of Boston in protest of right-wing activists hosting a ´free speech´ rally on Saturday. Only a handful of attendees could be spotted against the swarm of the estimated 15,000 counter-protesters who chanted loudly as they made their way towards Boston Common. Organizers of the rally had attempted to distance themselves from the neo-Nazis, white supremacists and others who fomented violence in Charlottesville last week. The city mayor had pleaded for counter-protesters to stay away, saying their presence would draw more attention to the far-right activists and could result in violence.

An SUV crashed after all four occupants overdosed on heroin in North Carolina. The same day, a man in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, grabbed the steering wheel after his grandson lost consciousness while driving. Police in the city of 30,000 responded to 11 other overdose reports that day, including a woman who crashed her car just before a highway entrance. The next day in Cleveland, a rescue squad found an unconscious 43-year-old man who had driven off the road and hit a pole. An overdose antidote brought him back around, police say. He was seriously hurt from the crash and was cited

Marijuana is legal in some capacity, whether medicinally or recreationally, in more than half of the United States. But according to conservative columnist Ann Coulter, legalization of the plant is “destroying the country,” and what’s worse, it “makes people retarded.” That’s what The New York Times best-selling author had to say about cannabis while speaking at the nonpartisan political event Politicon on Saturday.

Speaking at the Islamic Center of Southern California, Jackson blamed the electoral college system, giving disproportionate influence to less populated states, for the 2000 and 2016 loss of Democratic presidential candidates Al Gore and Hillary Clinton despite their winning the popular vote. “Today we are looking at a structural problem,” Jackson said. “These monuments must go.
