AS IF you GAS about Jobs?!!?! Are you serious? Your same boneheads in the house have voted 42 times to repeal the ACA, 50 or more votes to restrict Abortion, how many JOBS BILLS???? How much investment in jobs programs or the economy will Republicans let get done???
We're in a slow recovery because your party is causing a crisis every 6 months, refuses to allow $$$ as investment to improve the economy, are perfectly fine cutting Government jobs and obstructs anything that would help unemployed Americans.
CRISIS LIKE THE ONE WE'RE IN NOW and which you've now posted hundreds of comments bashing me and trying to claim it's all Dems fault.
Well, here you go meathead, THIS is all I've been saying...
"McCain To Fox News: No, The Shutdown Is The GOP's Fault
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) channeled his inner-maverick Friday during an appearance on Fox News Channel, repeatedly reminding the conservative network that the government shutdown was brought about by the quixotic effort to halt the Affordable Care Act.
When anchor Martha MacCallum asked him about the White House's handling of the suspension of death benefits to military families, McCain said that while the administration deserves blame it was a GOP-induced shutdown that caused the problem in the first place.
"Let's have a little straight talk, Martha," McCain said. "[The administration] wouldn't have had the opportunity to handle it that way if we had not shut down the government on a fool's errand that we were not going to accomplish. The whole premise of shutting down the government was the repeal of Obamacare. I fought against Obamacare harder than any of the people who wanted to shut down the government."
McCain's appearance on Fox came shortly after Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), the leader of the movement to defund the health care law, spoke at the Values Voter Summit. MacCallum asked McCain how he felt about Cruz "representing" Republicans at a meeting scheduled for Friday at the White House.
"First of all, Martha, please, he's not representing us there," McCain said.
The interview closed with McCain rattling off a number of proposals that are "achievable" for Republicans.
"Defunding Obamacare is not one of them," he said emphatically.
"Well, we'll see," MacCallum said, prompting sarcastic laughter from the senator.
"I guarantee it," McCain said. "Not only will you see, I guarantee it."
Just like I said, just like you refuse to accept Republicans role in all this!!!

Sonny, you dumb ass, I'm going to explain this one last time.
Our Constitution gives The House Of Representatives the responsibility for creating the budget. Not The Senate and not The president. The budget leaves The House of Representatives and goes to The Senate. The Senate can propose changes and/or ammendments and pas it back to The House or accept it as written and send it to The President.
THAT is how it is supposed to work. The fact that you keep slobbering over a bullshit budget provided by The Senate after 4 years of our government not having a budget doesn't prove anything, other than you're an idiot.
The House of Representatives cannot get a budget passed because the obstructionists in The Senate and the Whitehouse (Obama) refuse to work with them...pretty simple.
End of class.

"The Senate can propose changes and/or ammendments and pas it back to The House or accept it as written and send it to The President."
It's been passed back to the house, now what?
It's called "Normal Order"
And it means..
They go to Conference, you're a rotten teacher.
"It is indeed a complicated process. Many forces shape the federal budget,*****some of them are forces written into law—like the president’s role in drafting the budget*****—while other forces stem from the realities of our political system.
How Does the Federal Government Create a Budget?
There are five key steps in the federal budget process:
Step 1: The President submits a budget request to Congress
Step 2: The House and Senate pass budget resolutions
Step 3: House and Senate Appropriations subcommittees “markup” appropriations bills
Step 4: The House and Senate vote on appropriations bills and reconcile differences
Step 5: The President signs each appropriations bill and the budget becomes law
Step 1: The President Submits a Budget Request
The president sends a budget request to Congress each February for the coming fiscal year, which begins on Oct. 1.6 For example, President Obama submitted his budget request for fiscal year 2013 in February of 2012. Fiscal year 2013 commences on Oct. 1, 2012, and ends on Sept. 30, 2013.
The president’s budget request is just a proposal. Congress then reviews the request and passes its own appropriations bills; only after the president signs these bills does the country have a budget for the new fiscal year.7
Step 2: The House and Senate Pass Budget Resolutions
Once the president’s budget request has been released, Congress begins the months-long process of reviewing the request. After the president submits the budget request and lawmakers have thoroughly reviewed it, the House Committee on the Budget and the Senate Committee on the Budget each writes a budget resolution.8 A budget resolution is not a binding document, but is more like a blueprint. It provides a framework for Congress for making budget decisions about spending and taxes. It sets overall annual spending limits for federal agencies, but does not set specific spending amounts for particular programs. After the two chambers pass their budget resolutions, a joint conference is formed to iron out differences between the two and a reconciled version is then voted on by each chamber.

Step 3: House and Senate Subcommittees “Markup” Appropriation Bills
The Appropriations Committees in both the House and the Senate are responsible for determining the precise levels of budget authority for all discretionary programs.9 The Appropriations Committees in both the House and Senate are broken down into smaller Appropriations subcommittees, which review the president’s budget request pertaining to the federal agencies under their specific jurisdictions.(Subcommittees cover different areas of the federal government; for example, there is a subcommittee for defense spending, and another one for energy and water.) After each subcommittee reviews the president’s request, it conducts hearings and poses questions to leaders of its associated federal agencies about each agency’s requested budget.10
Based on all of this information, the chair of each subcommittee writes a first draft of the subcommittee’s appropriations bill, abiding by the spending limits set out in the budget resolution. All subcommittee members then consider, amend, and finally vote on the bill. Once it has passed the subcommittee, the bill goes to the full Appropriations Committee. The full committee reviews it, and then sends it to the full House or Senate for consideration.
Step 4: The House and Senate Vote on Appropriations Bills and Reconcile Differences
The full House and Senate then debate and vote on appropriations bills from each of the 12 subcommittees. After both the House and Senate pass their versions of each appropriations bill, a conference committee meets to resolve differences between the House and Senate versions. After the conference committee produces a reconciled version of the bill, the House and Senate vote again, but this time on a bill that is identical in both chambers.# After passing both the House and Senate, each appropriations bill goes to the president.

You're going to try and SPIN this one more time in your favor!!!!
If Faux Snews told you, gravity was a myth and Doctors have been putting magnets in children's feet for years now, you'd be here trying to sell that to us all!!!!
AND, for the last time, THIS SHUT DOWN OF YOURS IS NOT ABOUT THE BUDGET!!!
You and the rest of the teabagger crusade, shut it down over delaying the implementation of the ACA!
Now, you'd like to change that too!!!
The budget has nothing to do with your shut down!
#156 Oct 14, 2013
John McCain tells Faux Snews audience what it doesn't WANT TO HEAR!!!
Factless with his fingers in his ears......Lalalalalalalalalala lalalaalallaalalalalalalala... .I can't hear you, lalalalalalalalalalalalalalaal laalallaa

This is why everyone knows, if you think you can have a "reasonable discussion" with a teabagger, you should just go get a rock, hit yourslef on the head with it several times, the result will be better than trying to discuss reality with a teabagger, this has been known for more than 4 years now!!!!!
There is no basis in realty that they would ever agree to as a starting point!!!!

Words of wisdom from a Gnat!
#158 Oct 14, 2013
So you have confirmed you are a simpleton...your constant whining about all of this is pathetic. In March, The Senate didn't take the budget from The House and do what they are supposed to do, they submitted their own budget and expected The House to swallow it...not the way it is supposed to work...THAT is why we have had no budget and our government continues to run on these pathetic continuing resolutions.
BTW...noone listens to John McCain any longer...he is part of the problem...I guess he's been sleeping with Democrats too long and they finally infected his mind.
#159 Oct 14, 2013
Of course, even when a Republican tells you the truth, it therefore MUST be something conspiracy releated such as "he's been sleeping with Democrats too long and they finally infected his mind"!!
Anyone need any more proof, teabaggers cannot ever, ever admit they are wrong?
And Factless ,the word you're looking for is COMMITTEE!!! That's where Dems have been waiting for Republicans to show up for months now!
And BTW: The budget is not the reason your Republican teabagger representatives shut down the Government, you simply cannot allow for your brain to actually remember 14 days ago! Cause that memory, makes you wrong today!!!
