You Tea Party jerks are dumber than sh*t.
Many in the Republican party have had enough of this freshman nutcase and are blaming him for the mess they find themselves in. They consider his stance "infuriating", "futile" and "self-serving".

Republican New York Rep. Peter King, called Cruz a "fraud" who will "no longer have any influence in the Republican Party". Others have speculated "that he may be part of a liberal conspiracy to undermine their efforts."

<quoted text> Too bad that you were comatose when the Obamacare Facts debates were going on when it was passed by both Houses of Congress in 2009. You're all screwed up on the facts. It was before Obamacare when people with preexisting conditions were prevented from purchasing health insurance unless they paid exorbitant (double or triple)higher premiums more than the already insured paid. Secondly, where do you see in Obamacare where the government 'controls' the healthcare exchanges?--It was left to the responsibility of the states to establish the exchanges and Medicaid expansion, however if a state claimed that they couldn't afford it then they could opt out and let the federal government set up the exchanges for them. Also, what the healthcare exchanges provide is more competition which is a basic good in a free market system in contrast to the oligopoly of Big Insurers that we had before Obamacare where a few Big Insurers controlled the prices and dictated what healthcare could be distributed , denying many people with preexisting conditions any insurance at all. That was wrong and contrary to our democratic free market society where individuals hold social and economic rights along with their basic civil liberties.
Excellent post. Without Medicare expansion a large percentage will not have insurance. Like Florida

The government still hasn't released the document that explains the legal foundation for NSA phone spying.
"In the recent stream of disclosures about National Security Agency surveillance programs, one document, sources say, has been conspicuously absent: the original — and still classified — judicial interpretation that held that the bulk collection of Americans’ data was lawful.
That document, written by Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, then chief judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), provided the legal foundation for the NSA amassing a database of all Americans’ phone records, say current and former officials who have read it"

Uh oh Dems stalling budget talks in the Senate...

“It’s time for Democrat leaders to take ‘yes’ for an answer,” McConnell said in a statement calling on the Democratic leadership to return to the negotiating table.

McConnell pressed Reid to accept a six-point plan sponsored by Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) to fund the government for six months at an annualized rate of $986 billion, raise the debt limit, make modest reforms to ObamaCare, grant federal agencies more flexibility to manage their budgets and establish a bicameral budget conference.

Republicans say a group of six mostly centrist Democrats helped craft the proposal.

Just another example of just what a total mess eight years of Republican "leadership" did to our once great nation. Obama has done a very good job considering the mess you left. By the way Brad exactly what did Obama do that caused that to happen?

I do not know about you, but I for one do not want "poop" to kick off, his every post produces a chuckle. The BS he so ineffectually tries to spew is funny. You should be envious, tonight he has a date with a Hollywierd model at Red Libster afterwords she will watch as he tries to lure a little boy into his bed. She wants no part of him and he lacks the part she might be interested in. He will regale her as he describes about his career in the US military, how he was promoted to private general while serving in Nam, how he took care of his little brother while advancing thru the ranks, his exploits as captain of the national championship Wake team in the 50's, on why his advice is sought by leading democrats and president nobama.
You mist admit the BS he spews is hilarious.

Fascinating.

A picture of the Pakistani girl, 16 years old, talking to Lord Obama.

She is risking her life after being shot in the head by Islamic extremists advocating for women's rights.

She was denied the Nobel Peace Price and Car Wash Token. Apparently literally putting your life on the line for women's rights isn't as impressive as blowing up Pakistanis with drone missiles when it comes to earning the Prize/Token.

Then again, Lord Obama hadn't blown up Pakistanis yet when he got the Prize/Token. In fact he hadn't done a damned thing.

But I guess looking cool, playing basketball and being a smart-a$$ teleprompter reader is more meritorious than a 16-year-old girl risking her life.

Trucker Rally Organizer: Obama and Osama Are the Same Person

Thousands of truck drivers did not, as promised, block traffic on the Beltway causing mayhem and, as a result, somehow ending the government shutdown. But, amid all the fuss leading up to the D.C. trucker rally that wasn’t, the public had the pleasure of getting to know Zeeda Andrews, the lovely conspiracy theorist co-organizing the protest. When Andrews took to Fox News and Glenn Beck’s The Blaze this week to promote the rally, she also revealed that she is of the belief that President Obama and Osama bin Laden are the same person, that the president is a secret Muslim--likely related to his secret identity as Osama bin Laden--that journalist Michael Hastings was murdered by the CIA, the Department of Homeland Security is stocking up on weapons to kill American citizens and the Boston bombings were a carried out by the government. According to her Facebook page, Andrews enjoys 9-11 conspiracy theory movies including one based on the teachings of David Icke, a British conspiracy theorist known for his belief in a secret race of lizard people who run the world.
