The senator who spearheaded the campaign to defund the Affordable Care Act has seen his popularity sink at home, according to a poll released Wednesday.

A little more than half of Utahns — 51 percent — said they have an unfavorable opinion of Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), the poll from Brigham Young University showed. Only 40 percent said they have a favorable opinion of Lee, down from 50 percent in June.

Utah Republicans have even cooled on Lee. In June, 71 percent of in-state Republicans had a favorable opinion of Lee, while the latest poll showed 57 percent of Beehive State GOPers have a favorable view of the senator.

Moreover, the poll found 57 percent of Lee's constituents want him to compromise on a budget.

Although his role in the defunding movement has been largely overshadowed by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Lee laid the groundwork for the quixotic effort that led to the first government shutdown since 1996. As National Review reported, Lee began courting influential right-wing shock jocks like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity in early July to build support for the defunding plan.

"Marshals: Gunman fires at US courthouse in W.Va.
Email this Story
Oct 9, 4:56 PM (ET)
WHEELING, W.Va.(AP)- The U.S. Marshals Service says a man with an assault-type rifle fired 15 to 20 shots at the federal courthouse in Wheeling. W.Va., before security officers returned fire, critically wounding the man.
Chief deputy Mike Claxton of the Marshals Service in northern West Virginia says one officer was hurt by shattered glass inside the courthouse during Wednesday's shooting but no other injuries were reported.
Claxton says the gunman was in a parking lot across from the courthouse downtown. He says officials are attempting to determine a motive."

I guess America must be a "lazy" and "slacking" nation. So, who that minority who presumably constitutes the "society" which the lazy majority is "leeching" off?

Obama outpolled McCain because constitutionalists and social conservatives didn't like McCain, and they were a light showup at the polls.

In 2012 it was child's play to find the hundreds of locations where the voting machines were programmed to steal 100 percent of the vote. It's virtually impossible to find the locations where the voting machines were programmed to steal one in three or one in four votes.
All the programmers that programmed the voting machines to steal votes weren't so stupid they programmed the machines to steal 100 percent of the vote. The usual rule of thumb in humans is 10 percent or less would be that stupid, usually just a couple of percent.
The obvious conclusion from these obvious facts is, nobody knows what the vote count was because, if you want a recount with our current voting process, THERE'S NOTHING TO COUNT.

Nobody knows who won the last election.

Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) found himself on Tuesday being added to the list of things that had been shut down because of Republicans in Congress.

During a speech on the House floor to call for a vote on a resolution that said Congress’“dignity” had been impugned by the government shutdown, Grayson frustrated Speaker pro tempore Steve Womack (R-AR) by obstructing all other business and asserting privilege under Rule IX.

Grayson observed that media outlets all over the world and polling data within in the United States showed that “the dignity of the House has been called into question.”

The Florida Democrat pointed to a Public Policy Polling survey that found that Congress had an 8 percent approval rating. And to infuriate Republicans further, he read out of the each items that the American people found more likable than Congress.

“What do you have a higher opinion of, Congress or witches? Congress, 32 percent; witches, 46 percent,” he said.“What do you have a higher opinion of, Congress or hemorrhoids? Congress, 31 percent; hemorrhoids, 53 percent. What do you have a higher opinion of, Congress or dog poop? Congress 40 percent; dog poop 47 percent.”

At that point, Womack cautioned Grayson to confine his remarks to an explanation of why his resolution was privileged under Rule IX. But the congressman continued citing the poll, comparing Congress to toenail fungus, cockroaches and zombies.

what an investment...

Ladies and Gentlemen...the Obamacare website!

cost comparisons

"...few figures to chew on: Facebook, which received its first investment in June 2004, operated for a full six years before surpassing the $600 million mark in June 2010. Twitter, created in 2006, managed to get by with only $360.17 million in total funding until a $400 million boost in 2011. Instagram ginned up just $57.5 million in funding before Facebook bought it for (a staggering)$1 billion last year. And LinkedIn and Spotify, meanwhile, have only raised, respectively,$200 million and $288 million."

During the impeachment of Bill Clinton, Republicans were pretty unpopular. After eight years of George W. Bush, same. But never in the history of Gallup polling has the party been more unpopular than it is right now.
A crucial caveat: that history only goes back to 1992, so it doesn't include, for example, the post-Watergate era. But still, over the past 21 years the Republican Party has never been viewed less favorably by Americans than it is right now.

The Healthcare.gov website turns out to be a Trojan Horse that gathers emails, passwords, social security numbers, private banking details and other information you would normally want to keep private.

This information is then cross-referenced to your computer's IP address. From there, all your web surfing habits are tracked by IP and recorded along with your social security number.

The Obamacare exchanges then promises to take any information you provided them and "turn it over to law enforcement" and IRS auditors.

This is not a joke. This is how the government has tricked millions of people into self-incrimination.

Yep.

People don't care. They just wanted a black president. Period.

You're right, they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized, leaving us vulnerable to attacks.

They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger.
