In this economy that this president doesn't seem to have on his "to-do" list to fix, who can blame them?
When Obamacare kicks in next year and more money is taken out of the already diminishing take-home pay of those fortunate enough to still have jobs and the 55% find out free medical care isn't all it was cracked up to be, that number will change very quickly.
RomneyCare has worked out great for Massachusetts. There is no reason to believe it will not do the same for America.

Senate rejects Obama budget in 99-0 vote

The GOP forced the votes and believes they showcase the party's ability to produce plans that eventually balance the budget with the lack of a Democratic alternative.

...But the GOP push was blunted a bit when the House Republican budget from Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) faced Republican defections in a 41-58 vote.

The "no" votes included five Republicans: Sens. Susan Collins (Maine), Olympia Snowe (Maine), Scott Brown (Mass.), Rand Paul (Ky.) and Dean Heller (Nev.). Heller and Brown are both in competitive reelection battles this fall.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) initially voted against Ryan's budget but then changed her vote to "yes." She had voted against Ryan's budget last year.

In a statement, she said said she voted for Ryan's budget now that he had altered the Medicare proposals to make private insurance only an option.

Heller explained his no vote by saying the votes staged by his own leadership were a sham he would not endorse.

“Today was about political posturing. The American people are tired of it, and so am I,” he said.

House and Senate Unanimously Reject Obama Budgets — Or Do They?

“This is the president’s budget,” said the top Democrat on the Senate Budget Committee, Sen. Kent Conrad of South Dakota, indicating the voluminous budget proposal President Obama offered.“This is what Sen. Sessions has presented as being the president’s budget,” he said, indicating the much slimmer document.

“I think it’s readily apparent there is a big difference between the president’s budget, which I hold in my hands, and what Sen. Sessions has presented as being the president’s budget. This is not the president’s budget. So, of course, we’re not going to support it. It’s not what the president proposed.”

The White House official said the Sessions and Mulvaney’s bills were mere GOP stunts to get Democrats on record opposing ‘the President’s budget’” as well as distracting from what the House Republican budget would do, which the official described as “protect(ing) massive tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires while making the middle class and seniors pay.”

How the aging of America is hurting the Republican Party
"Even beyond the Ryan plan, the Tea Party championed causes dear to the hearts of retirees and near-retirees. Remember, the issue that launched the Tea Party in the summer of 2009 was…opposition to Medicare cuts for current beneficiaries. That’s a strange rallying cry for a purportedly limited government movement. Once you begin to think of the Tea Party as a vehicle for advancing the economic interests of the old against the young, though, a lot of otherwise mysterious behaviors suddenly begin to make sense."

Democrats have defended President Obama's budget initiatives, but voted "no" in unison last month when Republicans’ brought the president's plan to the floor last month. Democrats said Republicans were trying to embarrass Democrats by putting out his topline tax and spending numbers on the floor, but failed to specify the policies behind them.

The proposal, which was defeated 414-0, was introduced by U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney, a South Carolina Republican.

“The Mulvaney budget was supposedly based on President Obama’s budget, but it really wasn’t,” said U.S. Rep. Brad Miller, a Raleigh Democrat.“President Obama publicly urged that Democratic members vote against the Mulvaney budget as an impostor.”

Miller said the Mulvaney amendment would allow tax increases on the middle class, which the Obama budget does not.

Republicans charged Democrats with being afraid to vote for Obama's proposed tax increases and extra spending. Mulvaney said his amendment was no gimmick, but a nonpartisan analysis of the budget.

Andrew High, a spokesman for U.S. Rep. David Price, a Chapel Hill Democrat, said Republicans are looking to distract voters from their own budget proposals that give tax breaks to the wealthiest Americans.

“This amendment was not the President’s full budget; in fact it’s barely even a spoof of the President’s budget,” High said.“Even if it were, no matter the majority party, Congress never accepts a President’s budget request without changing a word.”

so here's some more right wing propaganda.
Has Obama finally broken the GOP’s will?
Did Obama’s re-election break what was left of Republican will?
Consider some recent events. Republicans raised taxes in the fiscal cliff deal, and now, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell has pushed through a tax increase to pay for a new transportation bill.
Virginia GOP Rep. Scott Rigell will travel with Obama to Newport News Shipbuilding, where the president will warn of job losses associated with sequester cuts.
Republican Governors like Rick Scott and (reportedly) Chris Christie are accepting ObamaCare’s Medicaid expansion.
Meanwhile, Chuck Hagel is on the verge of being the Secretary of Defense, prominent Republicans are signing up to support gay marriage, and Obama is set to meet with Sens. McCain and Graham about immigration reform.
They were once so defiant.

The shit you nitwits post is all lies, all the time.

You follow people like Dweeb, who repeats the same really ignorant lies, even after they've been debunked repeatedly.

All your side has is lies.

You do the same thing.

You come to conclusions without any factual input.

Terri Schiavo was a prime example. You were all for Big Government sticking it's nose into a personal matter, even as you decry Big Government.

You believed the nonsense from her parents, when doctors said for years that she had no brain activity. But you supported Bush intervening in a personal matter.

And your side made complete assholes of themselves, as the autopsy proved that the poor woman had no brain matter left.

Cost Senator Bill Frisk (R) his political career!! Cost Republiclowns lots of independent votes!!

You're doing the same here. Making accusations without any factual support, just FAUX stupidity and prejudice.

Carry on. You're exactly why most Americans have rejected the hatred and bias from Republiclown white supremacists.

You said for 4 years that Americans would reject Obama.

But they re-elected him!!

Proof positive that you are completely out of touch with your fellow Americans.

And Rick Scott has signed onto Expanded Medicare!!

Your own Teabagger heroes have turned against you, nitwit!!

BTW, House Republiclowns caved and approved the Violence Against Women Act, after trying for months to water it down.

Apparently they figured out how many votes they were losing by continuing the War on Women.

Obama's approval is far higher than the Republiclown House, and he is beating them like a drum.

The sequester will cost the Republiclowns dearly!!

I'm lovin' it!!
