Good luck on your home purchase Carol. Thanks to the newly formed Consumer Financial Protection Bureau you're a lot less likely to get screwed on the deal but then again that's another thing the Republicans opposed and want defunded.
More than likely, complying with requirements of this federal bureaucracy will add administrative costs to the transaction.

The population of the US is growing at a rate of 0.9% per year, or about 3 million per year.
The important statistic is that the percentage of Americans in the labor force is steadily declining, so fewer and fewer producers are supporting more and more moochers..
FACT: According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics: In August, 2003, "Civilian labor force participation rate" was 66.1%. In December, 2008, it was 66.1%. In August, 2013, the "Civilian labor force participation rate" was 63.2%(1% of that was lost in the first month of Obama's presidency). I don't think that is bad considering all the destructiveness done by the Bush administration policies.

Things will drastically improve once we get rid of the Republican controlled House which has kept our economy from growing.

It is failure of the federal government. The solution is not the debt ceiling. The solution is up to Congress & the President.
In the late 90's they did their job & matched revenues & spending to have a balanced budget.
Then the American people voted for a man who said that we should "give it back" instead of pay down the debt. He left office with the worst economic mess since the Great Depression.
When recovering rom this mess, slashing spending indiscriminately is not a solution. Government contraction only hurts the recovery.
Unfortunately, Republicans have chosen to work against the recovery & fight to maintain subsidies for big business will cutting said to children.
Higher taxes have zero chance in Congress, so what is your plan, Dumbass Dave?

List the legislation that majority democrats pelosi and reid passed that would have prevented the worst recession, this libtard mess, your retarded mess, losing 750,000 jobs per month, in 80+ years when 'w' handed over the keys to the WH and would have closed Gitmo?

Government can't be run like a business unless it is rearranged to resemble a business and that will never happen for we have these things called elections. Imagine a business with leadership elected by it's customers every 2 and 4 years.

Yeah, I guess anyone talking about government being held responsible and managing spending like a business and stating the obvious - that no one on Capital Hill is even talking about priorities - would, to you, make someone what you called me.

How is Tim Scott to blame for being appointed to fill a vacant seat no matter whose it was? And who cares if it was a Republican governor who appointed him?

Do you understand the difference?
So, show me where in the Affordable Care Act does it says that "a fee-for-service" insurance company has "death panels". Put up or shut up.

The government has shut down several times. And Yet? no one cared. The democrats who controlled the Senate and the House,(the complete Congress and the presidency)(Jimmah Carter) shut the government down three times for Abortion.
If the government "shuts down", most people will not be affected in any material way.

Nobody cares.

So does SEIU want their employers to drop all medical coverage so that they can enroll on the exchanges and receive subsidies?

Uh...excuse me for having to tell you what everyone already knows. Democrats were in control of Congress two years prior to Obama being elected and two years after Obama was elected.

They had two years after the 2008 election to single-handedly turn the economy around. They had control of both Congress and the Executive Branch.

But a good crisis couldn't go to waste, remember? So we got Obamacare instead.

Pick your avalanches carefully. You picked the wrong one.
