I don't know if this has been posted or not:
"Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell earned his first high-profile shutdown sideshow moment badge on Thursday by having a strategic conversation with Sen. Rand Paul on a hot mic."
Paul:“I just did CNN. I just go over and over again:‘We’re willing to compromise, we’re willing to negotiate,' I don’t think they’ve poll tested,‘We won’t negotiate.’ I think it’s awful for them to say that over and over again.”
McConnell:“Yeah, I do too. I just got came back from a two-hour meeting with them. And that was basically the same view privately as it was publicly,”
Paul: "I think if we keep saying,‘We wanted to defund it, we fought for that, but now we’re willing to compromise on this,’ I know we don’t want to be here, but we’re going to win this I think.”
Seriously? "Win this"?

You can't compromise with radical yahoos and it is very apparent that teabaggers fit that category.

Remember, it was compromising with Teabaggers that lost us our AAA credit rating and caused the sequester. They've done enough damage.

If democrats stand for country then why aren't they accountable for spending the country into oblivion? Why hasn't the democratically controlled Senate put forth a balanced budget since bo has been in office? Wouldn't jobs be an effective place to start for the country instead of speaking with heads of country's that have known ties to terrorism? Passing legislation to find out what's in it? Really? I have some really great investments I need to put you in!
You forget that Obama came into office in the midst of the worst recession in 80 years coupled with a housing collapse, a near financial meltdown, a nosediving stock market & two wars.

The recession cost this country well over a trillion dollars in lost revenues. Then the recession created the need to help the millions of American families who lost their jobs & income - unemployment, welfare, food stamps, medicaid.etc.

If your plan was to balance the budget under these conditions then you ain't too bright. The only way to do it would be to slash government spending which would just send millions more to the unemployment lines likely plunging us into a recession.

Obama had proposed numerous jobs bills but the Republicans passed none.

And really, Ray, tell me you re no so stupid to think Pelosi was talking to Congress when she made that comment. Are you Ray? Are you that stupid?

Or are you saying Republicans were too inept to know what was in a bill that as debated for nearly a year. Or are you saying they were voting no regardless so why would they need to read it.

Come on Ray. Show me something that actually says you are not as GD dumb as you appear to be.

Congressman Castigates Park Ranger For The Memorial Closure He Voted For

Mark Segraves, reporting for NBC News' Washington affiliate, managed to capture the howler highlight of the Great World War II Memorial Bleat-n-Repeat -- Rep. Randy Neugebauer's (R-Tex.) Wednesday confrontation of a poor park ranger on the scene -- who was doing nothing more than her job -- blaming her for the closure he voted for and telling her that she should be ashamed of herself.

From there, Segraves reports, "a crowd of onlookers got involved," and began loudly demanding that Neugebauer lay off the park ranger, pointing out again and again that the reason everyone was in the position they were in was due to the fact that Congress very specifically put them there. Neugebauer countered that it was all really Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's (D-Nev.) fault, but that failed to impress anyone.

What's really ghastly about this is that the whole "Harry Reid shut down the government" line is a talking point. It's "messaging" -- the mostly disingenuous bilge that politicos spit in order to gain some phantom upper hand in a war of rhetoric that plays itself out in the press. It's not intended to be sincere, it's all posturing -- throwing sub-standard witticisms at a wall in the hopes that something will stick and convince people.

This is all stuff intended for an audience of reporters -- and in that setting, all is fair. But you're not actually supposed to extend "messaging" out into the world of ordinary human Americans in this fashion, and victimize park rangers with it.

What's also inane about this is that, as Segraves takes pains to point out, the park rangers deployed to the World War II Memorial, while enforcing the closure of the memorial to the general public, are also there to make sure that the Honor Flight veterans who come to the memorial get access to the site. So, by impeding her from doing her job, all Neugebauer was doing was impeding access for the Honor Flight veterans. And telling the ranger that she should be ashamed? Man, that's not a good look, and the gathered crowd made sure Neugebauer learned that the hard way.

Got to give credit to the ranger for standing her ground and doing her job with professionalism, in the face of an idiot who really needs to learn his place.

Obamacare - a sad reminder to the projected "31 million people without insurance by 2023."
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/ ...
You truly are blind.
Obamacare, as passed, was not designed to get everyone insured. But how many would be uninsured without Obama n 2023.

BTW those 31 million people include non citizens. Some include people who would qualify for medicaid but due to state laws, can't get it.
