that's not what I was saying. Is it your contention that one man has enough power to shut down the government and cause a default but not have the power to cause failures at Fannie and Freddie?
is it your contention that what one man says can cause the failures at F&F?

because that's all you've got on Barney. what he said. and i think we have more than that on Ted. would you like the quotes that match his actual actions?

are every one of you loony left wingers going to bring this up without mentioning the numerous time democrats have done something similar? And why does Harry Reid get sole discression on what get to he discussed in the senate
Well maybe &, I'm not a left or right, I'm just me! The " something similar" thing has far too much latitude. What has the democrats done similar to holding the country hostage for ransom? Harry Reid is the majority leader so, he's entitled to that power but, he's not holding the country hostage!

"(DAILY KOS)-- My wife and I just got our updates from Kaiser telling us what our 2014 rates will be. Her monthly has been $168 this year, mine $150. We have a high deductible. We are generally healthy people who don’t go to the doctor often. I barely ever go. The insurance is in case of a major catastrophe.

Well, now, because of Obamacare, my wife’s rate is gong to $302 per month and mine is jumping to $284.

I am canceling insurance for us and I am not paying any [expletive]penalty. What the hell kind of reform is this?"

A sizable contingent of more moderate Republicans have watched with alarm as their party has been commandeered by tea party members and right-wing activists trying to kill Obamacare at all costs.

The absurdity struck home for Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) Tuesday as the prominent conservative organizations Heritage Action, Red State and FreedomWorks all came out against a last-second GOP leadership plan to avert a crisis that Democrats had warned was too far to the right.

"This party is going nuts," King told HuffPost. "So many people I run into who are normal people -- and I hate to use that term -- they just can't understand what's going on."

"On this one they can't even see both sides," King said. "They just think Republicans are crazy. That's it. They see no justification for any of this."

He added that the compromise House leaders were pushing actually did little to affect Obamacare, except to force the federal government to stop contributing its share to congressional staffers' health insurance.

"Even if this bill passed tonight, what would it have done?" King said. "After shutting down the government for two and a half weeks, laying off 800,000 people, all the damage we caused, all we would end up doing was taking away health insurance from congressional employees. That's it? That's what you go to war for? That's what we shut down the United States government for?"

Not all learn from reading. Some people learn from seeing someone else do it first. Some people learn from hearing someone else read it first. And some people learn from doing things from a hands on approach so what's your point?

Emammy's had a bad day, we have to cut him some slack.

His lies have caught up with him, and he doesn't like it one bit!!

He can't help it. He's been kicked from pillar to post all his miserable life.

I lit him up like a vat full of gasoline today. He'll have scars from it.

Did you notice he yells at his fav quarterback on TV?? Then tries to justify it as normal behavior. LOL

No further proof is needed concerning how crazy these right wingnuts are. Him and Dweeb. Loony birds of a feather.

Now that I have him gnawing the bone, my work here is done for tonight!!

they gave the majority leader in the house the same power. And your hostage comparison is as partisan as it gets. That's political rhetoric. The senate is just as guilty as the house.

but in return for higher premiums you get to feel good by subsidizing other people's slacker children and the chronically ill...doesn't that make you feel better?...

FWIW...

This is carol....

"...He who said that all Conservatives are stupid did not know them. Stupid Conservatives there may be,—and there certainly are very stupid Radicals. The well-educated, widely-read Conservative, who is well assured that all good things are gradually being brought to an end by the voice of the people, is generally the pleasantest man to be met."

Show me the logic behind a statement like that. Black people vote the folks that keep them poor? Do you hear how ignorant you sound.
