Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Can anyone point to a previous "law of the land" that was passed on a strict party line without compromises made on the part of the opposing party?

Tried to find one. Couldn't.

No wonder they're happy when they win...

The median wealth of a House member is $765,010... For a senator it’s $2.38 million.

Yet, incredibly, they still enjoy all of this:

$174,000 salary
Free company car
Free gas
Free parking (even at airports)
Free flights almost anywhere in the world
Per diem travel allowance... up to $3,000 a trip
A month’s paid vacation
3-day work-weeks
Free membership to a top-flight gym
Pension plan and 401K plan
Full retirement benefits (including up to 44% of their six figure salaries) at age 62
Free top of the line health insurance with 10 plans to choose from
Fully covered – even with pre-existing condition

Being a member of Congress is the most lucrative "Public Service" job in the world. Are our representatives officially out of touch with the real America? Should Congress live like the rest of us?

The reality of Obamacare was still an abstract pie-in-the-sky policy in 2012. The reality is now sinking in.
It will be a miracle if Democrats ever win another election again this time next year.
Gee, that's what you said when Obama ran against Rmoney. You are a good contrary indicator, that's for sure.

So why'd a Teabag Patriot like you go on Social Security at 62??
If you loved your country, you'd have kept working, you moocher, and saved America!!
I really get a laugh out of how you nitwits rationalize your Gov't Socialism Payments, yet accuse others of the same behavior.
"Bad when it's them, good when it's us" is the motto of you Baggers.
It was my money they took from me involuntarily. I want it back. Now.

But since you're such a big fan of government taking your money and giving it back whenever they feel like it, maybe you can work until you're 70 and have a few years to enjoy your retirement before you kick the bucket.

The House has passed bills that will finance NIH, WIC, Border Guards and Park Rangers.
Obama states he would veto them.

You don't fund the Gov't in pieces, out of fear that your cuts are unpopular with the public. They're covering their asses, and O ain't playing that game, fool!!

What the House is attempting to do is absurd. More blackmail in the classic definition.

The House controls the money. Without which everything shuts down.

Obama got no money. Bonehead man got the money.

You tell Bonehead to open the cemeteries. I'm sure he'll listen to you.

You aren't very bright are you?

This is a partial shut-down, fool. The OMB, which operates under the admin, is deciding what is essential are not.

Fund the NIH! Do you think Obama's spite is worth a child not getting his cancer treatment? You are as repulsive as he is if you think the end is justified by going to this extreme.

And that's why they're called 'entitlements'.

Many people like you think they'd be better off if they hadn't paid into the system.

Based on the number of older people surviving on Social Security alone, this disproves just how competent the average person is in planning for their later years.

If left to most, it's about later. I'll do it later. Then a bad economy, a job loss, an illness, and suddenly Social Security is your lifeline.

Though most of you deny it, it's all about I'll get mine now, and the younger ones will get screwed with the bill for me but no benefits for them.

You're a real patriot, fer sure.

Once again-idiot-this is a partial shut down.

The only agencies and services that are closed are those the admin's OMB has closed as non-essential

The OMB calls the Amber Alert and cancer treatment to kids as non-essential-heartless creeps.

No other POTUS has closed commentaries during these shut downs showing how over the top your spiteful POTUS is.

The Amber Alert website was closed by Obama's OMB as "non-essential" but The US Bureau of Engraving's website is apparently "essential" and is open.

Seeing as you're lame enough to believe that these are in any way Obama's decisions, you shouldn't be talking about who's bright.

The heads of the various agencies determine how the limitations in funding must be handled. You foolishly blame Obama.

But, just like in the IRS stupidity, you Teabags overreach and pretend it was all done in the White House. That failed miserably, making Issa look the fool.

You're basically doing the same thing here.

It won't work. Most people aren't as foolish or hateful as you are.
