Obamacare wasn't signed into law to give "Michelle's friend" a convenient way to collect tax dollars.

Perhaps not, but it sure worked out that way.

No Bid Contracts are a shady business practice, as well. However, the action you are describing doesn't directly benefit Michelle in the monetary sense whereas the FL drug testing issue does directly benefit the governor.

Was this a no bid contract?

I have no clue but I don't see that as the issue. The governor enacted a law that directly benefits his wifes trust in a BIG way...do you not see a problem with this what so ever?

It's like Halliburton getting the contract to provide the logistics for the military. Who do you think would do it if not for such companies. When the draft ended, the military lost the ability to do its own logistical support. Would you rather have the draft back ?

I don't like things like this, but for people like Lair to act like it is some sort of GOP only parlour trick is ridiculous.

It's a political parlor trick that is not exclusive to any party.

Who is "Michelle's friend", and who told you about this no-bid contract?

The woman who owns the company that built the website (kinda-sorta) was a classmate in college. Look it up. You can bet the farm that it wasn't MSNBC.

It's actually public information. Look it up (if you know how).

What bothers me is that it was a no bid contract. Several US companies were capable of doing that job, and it might have actually worked.

See, how it works is - when you post some inane horseshit, we ask for a link to said horseshit. I can look it up myself, but if you can't be bothered, then neither can I.

Except the only inane horse **** came from you. You actually a special kind of.......well, everyone else gets the idea. You are the one that started with the insults. Man up and take your well deserved medicine. I owe you nothing. If you are too lazy to do your own research after accusing me of some stupid ****, then, FO. Do without.
