How Goes The GOP’s Shutdown?
As you know, I don’t think much about policy, and I’m willing to accept that Obamacare is bad. Here’s the thing, though: it passed Congress after a hellacious political battle, and it passed muster with the Supreme Court. In our system, this is supposed to have settled the matter. Republican lost, fair and square. Now, though, the Tea Partiers are attempting an extreme move to stop the implementation of a program they hate — a move that destabilizes the normal process of government. As McArdle points out, just because you hate Obamacare doesn’t mean anything you can do to stop it must be done. It was always idiotic to think that the administration would negotiate over its signature program. Yes, most Americans may not like Obamacare, but most Americans do not think it’s the apocalypse, either. Who did this minority of Republicans think would be on their side?
What this episode shows is that the House Republicans are controlled by a radical faction, guided by no sense of political prudence, who are willing to blow up the normal processes of government to get what they want. Good luck trying to convince voters in 2016 to turn the presidency over to this party. Gallup also finds this:
Self-identified Republicans are more than twice as likely to view their own party unfavorably (27%) as Democrats are to see their own party unfavorably (13%). The GOP’s unfavorable rating among Republicans is up eight points from September, compared with a one-point rise in Democratic Party unfavorables among Democrats. These findings may be consistent with the widely circulated narrative that the Republican Party is internally splintered on how best to handle the budgetary negotiations.
Even ordinary Republicans hate the Republicans. Good work, men. From the party whose wise and prudent judgment brought us the Iraq cakewalk…

John Maynard Keynes was characterized as a liberal, an atheist and a statistician as well as a sodomite.
Keynes admitted that by "a continuous process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens. By this method, they not only confiscate, but confiscate arbitrarily: and while the process impoverishes many, it actually enriches some. The process engages all of the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner that not one man in a million can diagnose."
When Larry Summers, head of President Obama's National Economic Council and former president of Harvard University, was asked by Charlie Rose "what idea, what person has most influenced your thinking on how to deal with this financial mess?" without hesitation answered "Keynes."

Keynesian economics ended the depression and was the foundation of our economics for the entire post WWII economic boom.

It was only after Raygun's voodoo/supply side economics that The middle class began to shrink and debt and deficits exploded.

Only an idiot would think that wealth will trickle down to the middle class when you cut taxes on the rich. You seem to enjoy having the rich piss on you and tell you its raining.

Surprised that lil midget constitutionalist can't explain why congress is neglecting their constitutional duties by not paying our bills.
Explain it fk face.
You can't cruse your way out of dumb. Negotiation has always been constitutional and part of bill making.

Extending the individual mandate for a year is constitutional. Even Reid isn't claiming it isn't.

Hey did you hear how Reid voted down the VA CR than got bit in the butt when outrage over failure to pay death benefits hit the fan.

GO TRUCKERS of The UNITED STATES of AMERICA!!!!

Boycotting MARXISM in DC!!



http://www.newsmax.com/TheWire/trucker-protes...

Thousands of truckers are reportedly planning a massive protest in Washington, D.C., this weekend in which they'll block the highway that runs around the nation's capital in an effort to "shut down America."

The demonstration, "Truckers Ride for the Constitution," aims to tie up all three lanes of Interstate 495, which loops around D.C., by driving 55 mph in protest of low wages, fuel prices, the debt ceiling, regulations, the government shutdown, President Barack Obama, and "the corruption that is destroying America," according to U.S. News & World report.

Motorists wishing to pass the convoy must have "T2SDA" — "Truckers to Shut Down America" — displayed somewhere on their vehicle, the organization said.

Before I leave let me reiterate again what is going to happen here, phag:

1)The debt ceiling will NOT be increased, and we will shut down more of the fed (and you freeloaders will have to grovel for cheese).

2)Depending upon how he reacts, we MAY remove odumbo the chimp from office in disgrace. His hypocrisy/fraud in voting AGAINST raising the debt ceiling as a Senator has now come back to haunt him.

3)The midterm elections will see almost ALL incumbent hacks in both parties expelled, and replaced by fiscally-conservative, Constitutional Libertarians.

4)Every day the fed is shut down, more and more people realize it is an unnecessary waste.

5)You will continue absorbing MASSIVE amounts of sperm (enough to choke an elephant).

No need to take any questions at this time. Read it, learn it, LIVE IT......:-)

I don't see anything about paying for any Marxist welfare program in that text from the Constitution. It says pay the debt.

I really wish you AND Obama had read the Constitution at least once in your lives.
