Nothing wrong with that if that's what you think. If it were up to me, nearly everyone of them would be voted out and we'd start over again. Career politicians are part of the problem are dragging us down.
Yes. I've always been against term limits for Congress, until about 15 years ago. I think our biggest problem is allowing people to stay in Congress as if that's their career, and not a service to the people. Term limits is a last ditch idea, and I think we're in our last ditch.

Lily, need to add (at the risk of being fussed at) that I did have to work again eventually. But being able to learn a new career allowing me to work from home during those three years of staying at home was, indeed, very fortunate. Not everyone could do that kind of job or would want to do that kind of job.

So, in that way, having that ability and desire was not only fortunate in my situation but of which I'm grateful. Not all women are in that same situation, and I would have been in their position if not for that.

It seemed important to say. It's not easy being a working mother in this day and time no matter how you slice it.

Many of us here have answered these questions many times. You don't dispute our answers, you ignore them. Apparently you're looking for some specific answers. Why don't you tell us what you think these answers are and we can tell you if we agree.
There has never been an answer from you dupes to ignore. All you post is some diversion to avoid answering the question.
Here are thos questions again:

Did Obama lie when he claimed to have been born in Kenya? Or, did Obama lie when he claimed to have been born in Hawaii?
(You have to tell us which time Obama lied to answer this question.)

Or, another question you run away from with your tail between your legs:
Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?
(You have to tell us why Obama lied covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi to answer this question)

Or, yet another question you run away from with your tail between your legs:
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
(You have to identify a source of money the government will tax to answer this question.)

So, why don't you be the first to answer these questions.

It's good because it came from Nancy Pelosi...

'Breitbart News has obtained a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee report on the Obamacare Navigators that will be released Monday. It has found that Obamacare Navigators have been giving Americans misinformation and, in some cases, actively encouraging enrollees to commit fraud in order to raise their subsidies. To complicate matters further, there is no way for Americans to find out whether their Navigators are properly certified.'

Actually, one of my kids is saving more than that and has a lower deductible and better coverage.
It's only folks who watch FOX entertainment news day and night that are finding higher rates, deductibles etc. I am still waiting to meet an actual person who is paying more for comparable out of group coverage__or someone who's truly fretting over losing their group coverage.

Of course I'm talking about actual people__not fictitious ones who's sob stories appear in the in boxes of right wankers.

I love how the right whiners blame Democrats when this country went from a balanced budget ( You know Flacktard that thing you right whiners cry about every day) to the Worst recession is 80 years forcing record number of people onto unemployment & welfare.
We started down hill when Bush & the Republicans ran through two tax cuts favoring the wealthy while going to two wars while spending out their asses without regard to funding.
But nooooooooooooooooooooooooo the Democrats did it.
This is why you people are dumber than sh*t.
I gave you a link to government spending you can reference to back your bullshit up, dupe. Post the numbers. I especially want to see that 160 million dollar deficit the Republicans gave to the Democrats when the Democrats took over all the purse strings of the government, and see you post the Democrats increasing that deficit one thousand percent.

You seem to think there would not be any cost to fighting the war the Arab Islamists started. Now, what kind of an idiot would think that? You're a special kind of stupid, aren't you?

You never did identify the supposed two different enemies of these supposed two wars you speak about.
So, who were the two different enemies of these two wars you mention?

We'll start here. I can't wait unitl we get to the part where you have to tell us what you would have done if you were president.

It's like Ryan said in a recent interview...at least both sides are talking now - and, as he put it, "you have to crawl before you can stand before you can run."
In other words, it's a start. He would have preferred "more zeroes" in the budget cuts but Democrats are at least finally moving - and a crawl is better than pretending to be a frozen statue.
Sometimes you have to get on the floor just to be eye level. If you know what I mean.
No, have no idea what you mean. However, I'm of the opinion that the GOP is desperately making nice-nice so's not to end up in the dustbin of history.
