(Before It's News)

Obama finally unites Republicans, Democrats . . . Obama’s request for authorization to use military force against the Islamic State is a tough sell on Capitol Hill in its current form, with Republicans calling it too soft and Democrats questioning its scope and size. Washington Examiner

IRS to pay back-refunds to illegals . . . IRS Commissioner Koskinen said even illegal immigrants who didn’t pay taxes will be able to apply for back-credits once they get Social Security numbers. The EITC is a refundable tax credit, which means those who don’t have any tax liability can still get money back from the government. He said that would apply even “if you did not file” taxes, as long as the illegal immigrant could demonstrate having worked off-the-books during those years. Washington Times

Okay, this makes sense. So now you get credit for prior illegal activity! Orwellian!!

Obama AWOL on Boko . . . It started with a groundswell of support and an appeal to “Bring Back Our Girls.” Ten months later, with most of those Nigerian schoolgirls no closer to being home, the White House rarely invokes the mounting atrocities committed by Boko Haram. Washington Examiner

VA Secretary to Iraq war veteran: “What have you done?” . . . Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald on Wednesday asked a Republican lawmaker who served in both Iraq wars, “What have you done?” as the two men sparred over huge cost overruns at a troubled Denver VA hospital. Fox News

WH seeks to raid one Social Security account to fix another . . .  Senate Republicans gave a chilly reception Wednesday to a White House plan to shift money from Social Security’s retirement funds to cover a looming shortfall in its disability account. Associated Press

Why did Scott Walker drop out of college? . . . In 1990, that news stunned his friends at Marquette University. Walker, the campus’s suit-wearing, Reagan-loving politico — who enjoyed the place so much that he had run for student body president — had left without graduating. Washington Post

Walker “punts” on evolution . . . The Republican governor, during a question-and-answer session after a speech in London, was asked whether he believes in or accepts evolution. “For me, I’m going to punt on that one as well,” Walker said, prompting some murmurs in the crowd at Chatham House, a major London think tank. “That’s a question a politician shouldn’t be involved in one way or another. So, I’m going to leave that up to you.” Politico
