The question should be would the Tea Party have formed in 2/09 if Hillary Clinton won?
A left wing, liberal democrat pushed the forming of the Tea Party, not Obama's skin color.
What's your argument - they should've bought the "I'll cut the deficit in half" BS?
So it was a Republican effort?

Or showed he was really a supporter of Al Qaeda.
If McCain had shown his true self, the TEA Party would have immediately formed. Tax issues first, though.

compromise used to work, but when you have 30 people in Congress who think they knows what's best for us even though they are only speaking for 23% of us then they are the problem.

Congress isn't supposed to need a Cornhusker Kickback and a Louisiana Purchase to get a bill passed, either.
I don't know what planet you live on, but here on Earth there was no debate. Everything was done behind closed doors and any other-than-Democrat input was prohibited.
The people who wrote the bill called it a "penalty". The Supreme Court interpreted the bill and called it a "tax". I guess that makes sense to an idiot like you.
Yes, the new order in DC will be to shut this incompetent, unconstitutional, criminal, corrupt, insane government down if it can't function with some sanity.
The government doesn't spend as much money when it is shut down as it does when it operates ... "normally".
Use any reason or excuse to shut this incompetent government down. Keep it shut down until a budget is passed by both the House and Senate that isn't certain to collapse the government.
Shut the government down until they grow up.
You are naive of you think legislation doesn't pass in Congress without special deals to get votes.

Of course you would say that.
But Obama actually lowered taxes in the stimulus bill.
So why were they protesting Obama. Why weren't they protesting Republican Congressmen & Senators that were voting yes yes yes under Bush? Cantor & Ryan etc.
This makes your premise a joke.
Because "Porkulus" was a hoax.

By the way, wouldn't that be one of those "unfunded tax cuts" (whatever that is in a real world) you are always so upset about?

Have you ever asked a Tea Party member what they thought of the Bush administration's spending policies?

So, what you're saying is, 30 people can obstruct the activities that require a majority of 535 people to enact, right?
If what you said is anywhere even close to true, the other 505 people would just steamroll over those 30.

Obviously, there is a hell of a lot more than 30, you lying coxucking sackofshit fraudulent dupe.

You watch the black out media. Have they covered Obama putting a rope around a war monument in D.C. in the great outdoors because of the shutdown?
And asking what president in their right mind would do that?
Just curious.
how can they cover that that didn't happen?

so you guys are really freaking out over that fact that this is starting to look like the run up to the election? though since there is no doubt in any rational mind that the GOP has finally cut it's own throat with their brinkmanship tactics, your freakout is probably warranted.

If they already have medical insurance, why would they decide now to change to PT workers? Why wouldn't they have done it already.
If the policies in the exchanges are not as good a deal as they have now, they don't need to change.
You people are dumber than crap.
Their medical insurance gets cut right along with their full-time hours. You people are dumber than dirt.
