I see that Lee is a drone for Obama. There's this "little" law called the Constitution. I know, Obama and his sheep see it as a roadblock to their tyranny, but it IS the Law of the Land. Lee's suggestion that Obama unilaterally raise the debt limit is, flat out, UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Lee, if you don't like living under the Constitution, I will gladly help you pack so you can move to Cuba or some other totalitarian country.

Tired of it:

It ain't over until the working tax payers say it is over.

And we ain't even close to crying "uncle" yet.

If your way of life is to elect political w.hores who will trade another worker's tax dollars for your vote and, in return, provide you with goods and services you haven't earned or paid for yourself, then, Lord willing, we certainly do hope that the Tea Party is successful in destroying your way of life.

Before your way of life destroys America.

Whats the point of being involved in politics and voting if you are not concerned with facts? I want to make informed decisions because I actually care. You idiots want someone to lie to you and make it sound like rainbows after refreshing rain of aborted fetuses. Tragic?

Who is the idiot down voting quoted facts from Huff Post, Washinton Times, Forbes & Library of congress. You can cross check whatever you want. I posted the link to the library of congress for you to do that. See, we don't need to hide behind lies and perception. We freely invite you morons to look it up, go to the source.

"The House GOP plan to re-open the government also includes repealing what’s known as the medical device tax for two years.

But both Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, and the White House dismissed the offer on Tuesday.

Reid called it a “blatant attack on bipartisanship” and a White House spokeswoman called it “a partisan attempt to appease a small group of Tea Party Republicans who forced the government shutdown in the first place.”

A spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner shot back on Tuesday by referencing the medical device tax on certain equipment like pacemakers.

“Is Senator Reid so blinded by partisanship that he is willing to risk default on our debt to protect a ‘pacemaker tax’ that 34 Senate Democrats are on the record opposing, and he himself called ‘stupid’?” Boehner spokesman Michael Steel said."

"The latest House Republican proposal to make a fiscal deal over the budget includes killing Obamacare health-care subsidies for lawmakers and certain Obama administration officials.

This kind of proposal has gotten attention in recent months as Sen. David Vitter, a Louisiana Republican, has pushed his “No Washington Exemption from Obamacare” amendment.

That proposal would require all members of Congress, President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and all political appointees in the Obama administration to purchase their own health insurance on the Obamacare exchanges without any taxpayer-funded subsidies."

There you go never summer.

I would rate you a bumbling idiot!. All this information is recorded history, it has occurred in reality. The sad part is you don’t know any of this and yet post on a blog regarding the topic. I don’t know what is worse. The fact that you talk out of your arse or the fact that you are a puppet.

Their latest bill was much less than Republicans had initially hoped for. Their opening bid was to end the health law altogether, and their second bid was to repeal a tax on medical devices included in the law, and to delay it for one year. Both of those were defeated on party-line votes in the Senate, where Democrats hold a numerical edge — and appear to have the upper hand in the parliamentary maneuvering.

"Despite 12 defections, House Republicans — aided by nine Democrats — powered through a proposal to delay the individual mandate that requires all Americans to have health coverage, and also force members of Congress to forgo taxpayers’ contributions to their health plans"

Weathering the early signs of cracks in their unity, the Republican Party passed its latest spending proposal through the House Monday night, saying it was a good-faith effort to prevent a government shutdown while working to blunt the worst parts of President Obama’s health law.

But less than an hour later the Senate killed the proposal on a party-line vote — the third one in a row it’s shot down — and again demanded House Republicans pass a spending bill without preconditions

Neversummer. You are a puppet

"WASHINGTON—The White House on Thursday said President Barack Obama would veto a bill from House Republicans that would fund federal agencies into the new fiscal year but also strip all money from his signature health care law."

Perhaps the Disney empire could build a new theme park for these folks. All the women would wear modest dresses, have 5 children and and carry a Glock. Everyone would be as white as white can be - even Mickey - and the men never have vacuum or do the dishes. It would be lovely.

Ramiskon. True statement, it is. It was not winnable, but not for the reasons you believe.

1. Republicans passed (4) different bills funding all of government so nothing was shut down. Harry read refused to vote on them. 2. 2 of those bills contained funding for Obamacare if Obama delayed the individual mandate like he did with the giant corporations, and if the subsidies for non-qualifying congressional workers were done away with.

I didn’t work though because republican’s didn’t follow thru. Obama called their bluff. He shut down government, refused to sign any funding bills unless they contained everything he wanted. Which was subsidies for even the high salaried congress members and aids and exemptions for corporations in Obamacare.

And the distancing begins:

Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire called the House GOP tactic of tying Obamacare to the shutdown legislation "an ill-conceived strategy from the beginning, not a winning strategy."

She was for it, before she was against it!

Maybe because democrats are willing to create and prolong artificial suffering and republicans are not.

Twizz, still never answered why you and dems talk out of both sides of your mouth when it comes to trickledown economics

Still never explained why Obama stopped welfare checks and why you blamed it on Arizona.

Still never went the library of congress.

Why? Are you afraid of the truth?

Yeah, Crazy principles are the principles not to plunge us further in debt in an economy that has the lowest employment rate in history, where the gap between rich and poor is the largest in history, where fulltime is now categorized as 30 hours a week, where our debt is more than our annual GDP. Yep, that's crazy!

Marmel. Wrong!! I'm simply trying to stay afloat in pursuit of the "American Dream".

Wrong, the AMerican dream is dead because democrats have convinced a majority of Americans can vote money and food from others pockets and not work for it.

The American dream was freedom, mostly economic freedom, freedom to be successful. The AMerican dream wasn't the hope of being punished for success to support the lazy.
