Sadly enough, it only means we're still the Dumb and Dumber United States of America.
You can't admire someone you didn't trust only a month ago.
Last month, 53% of Americans thought the president was not honest according to a CNN/ORC poll and only four out of 10 thought Obama could manage the federal government effectively.
Moreover, fifty-six percent of the public last month said he is not a person they “admire” and not agreeable on issues concerning the country.
http://www.msnbc.com/morning-joe/obamas-trust...
So, as usual, a lot of people are still really confused in this country.
You also can't admire someone whose disapproval rating is 49% with only 42% approving and 56% disapproving of his signature law with only 40% approving.
http://www.gallup.com/poll/113980/Gallup-Dail...
http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/lates...
So what's there to admire if the majority don't approve of his job performance as president, don't trust him and don't approve of his legacy law?
Public trusts the republican house even less!

Second term presidents do not run for reelection.

It's the music...

"The study sample consisted of 775 visitors of dance events, clubs and rock festivals in Belgium.....

Respondents who used illegal drugs were 2.5 times more likely to report that they prefer dance music. Goa party visitors were nearly 5 times more likely to use illegal drugs. For those who reported visiting clubs, the odds of using illegal drugs were nearly 2 times higher."

Eliminating minimum wage could have two negative backlashes. Slave labor or higher prices for consumers.
In a perfect world, everyone could decide what was fair and pay their employees accordingly. But we don't live in that world.
No one would apply for the same jobs that weren't as competitive pay-wise as other jobs. Businesses would have to continually increase pay wages to be competitive and increase prices to pay for those higher wages or go out of business altogether.
Social Security is here to stay whether we like it or not. It was the Democrats brain child just like Obamacare and it's much harder for the government to take away than to give.
Look at Greece.

Marine Vet Slams Paul Ryan's 'Outrageous Attitude' Toward Military Pension Cuts
Appearing on Fox & Friends on Saturday, Jessie Jane Duff, who is at the E7 level, said Ryan, who brokered the deal with Sen. Patty Murray (D-WI), does not realize that many active duty military personnel go back to civilian life "broke" and "without a job" and have difficulty getting on equal footing with their "civilian counterparts." She noted that many veterans have had to leave the armed forces early due to injuries or are suffering from things like PTSD.
The deal Obama signed includes a provision that would "pare down annual cost of living increases in benefits for military retirees under age 62, saving the government an estimated $6.3 billion over a decade." What that means is a sergeant first class at the E7 level like Duff who retires at age 42 would lose $72,000 in benefits over a lifetime, according to a Fox News analysis.
She said that Ryan was "misleading" Americans into believing that veterans were getting a pay increase by using accounting tricks and lingo when in fact they are not.
Duff, of Concerned Veterans for America, said Ryan was screwing over the types of veterans who were deployed three times to Afghanistan and Iraq and said it was "outrageous" for Ryan to claim that the benefits were "extremely generous." She emphasized that not enough people in Congress have served in the military, and they are out of touch with Americans who have served or have family members in the armed forces.
Multiple bills have been introduced in the House to undo the cuts.

so what can you put on the table?
The early returns on the effects of the tax cuts have not been good.
The Bush tax cuts have contributed to revenues dropping in 2004 to the lowest level as a share of the economy since 1950, and have been a major contributor to the dramatic shift from large projected budget surpluses to projected deficits as far as the eye can see.
The tax cuts have conferred the most benefits, by far, on the highest-income households — those least in need of additional resources — at a time when income already is exceptionally concentrated at the top of the income spectrum.
The design of these tax cuts was ill-conceived, resulting in significantly less economic stimulus than could have been accomplished for the same budgetary cost. In part because the tax cuts were not as effective as alternative measures would have been, job creation during this recovery has been notably worse than in any other recovery since the end of World War II.

Tenth Anniversary of the Bush-era Tax Cuts
On this 10th anniversary of the first Bush-era tax changes, the following 10 facts should be noted:
1 The Bush tax cuts disproportionately benefited the wealthy.
2 The Bush tax cuts did little for low-income families.
3 The Bush tax cuts never trickled down.
4 The Bush tax cuts were a poorly designed economic stimulus.
5 The Bush tax cuts failed to create strong long-run growth.
6 The Bush tax cuts were so expensive that they added greatly to the debt.
7 The Bush tax cuts were much more expensive than advertised.
8 The Bush tax cuts continue to be expensive.
9 The Bush tax cuts eliminated the most progressive federal tax: taxes on large estates.
10 A decade of Bush tax cuts are increasing interest spending today.

Useless you can deny forever. You ask about bills passed by the house that hairless reed refuses to allow a vote on. You are denying that the house has passed budget(s) bills every year since 2009 that hairless reed refuses to allow a vote on in the senate.
