Wow!!! We were paying this U.S.Senator for all 21 hours of helping destroy the republican party. We need both party's in Washington to balance out the scales, but I'm afraid we will be down to one party real soon. The tea party has destroyed the republican party. Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Ted Cruz, Donald Trump, Michelle Baulkman, Hannity, and other voices of the tea party is slowly putting a dagger in the hearts of all republicans. What a shame.

THEY CALL THEMSELVES THE REPUBLICAN PARTY! But in fact if it weren’t for GOP homophobes fear pundits, Fox lies and propaganda, disenfranchising minority and the poor, religious and women bigotry, race-baiting, fraud-based claims, disingenuous racist hoax, plus gerrymandering to support their "white only" southern strategy - they wouldn't garner enough votes to be called a Republican party.

Why do libs always misuse disenfranchising? Being disenfranchised means losing one's right to vote, usually due to being a felon.

As for the rest of your bs, well it's just that. Only you can fix your ignorance though.

The irrational and highly emotional personality of today's GOP is a threat to democracy. The appeal to the base is similar to what we see with televised evangelism. They have empowered the uninformed and given ignorance and hatred a voice. However the mob, with pitchfork and torches in hand now has set its sight on its own. The angry crowd is looking among themselves for the enemy and has decided no one can be trusted.

Cruz and his supporters are self-serving morons. Even the rank and file R politicos can't stomach this guy. I watched part of his filibuster rant, as much as I could take anyway and was not surprised to hear him spewing out bold faced lies and partisan sophist half-truths literally every time he opened his mouth.

The 17% of the Republican Party known as the "tea party" is driving the Republican shipwreck and that's why it's so very crazy! However, take that 17% away and the Republican Party is shown for what it actually is...a fading political group. They will take in any fringe element, birthers, tea partyers, extreme right to lifers, extreme anti-gay groups, anyone is welcome if the will only vote Republican.

Got to believe that the group of U.S. House of Representative's Tea Partiers are feeling the 'crunch', and will continue to do so until Monday, at the latest! Perhaps the political pressure will squeeze some of the BS out of them. Eventually they will fold like a wet newspaper! By the end of the day Monday, these conservative Tea Party buffoons will have failed in their extortion attempt against the citizens of this country -- AGAIN! After that they will look even more confused, irrational, and delusional and become irrelevant after the next two election cycles of 2014 and 2016. GOOD RIDDANCE!

Eventually there will be no funds. We are down to a 10%/90% production/service economy. If things aren't changed eventually there will be no SS, Medicare, DoE which there shouldn't be anyway, money for the military as is the case in so many European countries, etc. Our economy has been going downhill since the 60's with the exception of the 90's and that was only because of the tech boom. The stock market is only being propped up because the Fed banks had the Treasury give them more money but instead of selling it to smaller banks they invested it making the rich richer. What a scam that is. When the Fed gets money from the Treasury, all they pay for is the cost of printing and supplies. Millionaires got almost free money then invested it. Printing all that money also caused more inflation.

Bush never put.... Medicare part D, Tax cuts for the top 1% , Two wars, 9 billion dollars in cash disappearing in Iraq and a bloated homeland security apparatus on the books. When Obama got into office he needed to know what kind of mess the country was in. so all that credit card spending finally went on the books and added trillions to the debt.

My point was to illustrate, how the republican far right tea-party is ready to bring every working man and woman, and the poor to their knees, in their quest to save America, except when you bring the wealthy 2% into the equation, it's hands off. I wish I was wrong about this, but I can't feel any other way after daily watching this tea party group, and listening to their statements, and their actions. If we are gonna help America, great. let's all do our part. Let's not exclude the 2% that controls 93% of America's wealth.

The Republicans are for the rich, I feel sorry for the middle class who would vote for Republicans in 2014 and 2016. Wake up America, I got mine, to hell with you attitude of the Republicans. They really could care less about the middle class or the poor which they find offensive.

Nobody is saying this, what they are saying is the republicans in Washington are all in on the trickle down economy. This means they are all about helping the elite 2%. This helping the rich at all cost and letting it tricle down was created under bush, everyone knows it never worked, but the republican leadership wants to continue giving all the rich all the breaks.

The one that posted before me obviously. If CIM was here that'd be two.

Trickle down economy does work. The problem is that there's been no trickle down. Production is almost gone. Fed banks are investing in stocks and such instead of selling that money to smaller banks to lend out. The idea works but hasn't been implemented. Republican politicians in DC are for the rich because those lobbyists are making the Reps rich. Democrat politicians are for the rich because those lobbyists are making the Dems rich, AND by keeping many people poor they keep getting votes.

You said it "The problem is that there's been no trickle down." This helping the rich with massive tax breaks hoping this will create jobs was an idea bush and cheney came up with 13 years ago, This has not worked, but the elite 2 % these billions went to, still wants the trickle down program alive, not to create jobs, but to fatten their portfoilio's. The republican party is set in concrete with these billionaires, and this trickle down garbage. It's not working, it is hurting America, giving the rich these massive tax breaks.

SERIOUSLY, Charles Kadlec, an old white rich business c.e.o. wrote this. give me a break, why didn't you just use Ted Cruz's statements. This guy is rich, a business owner, and these statements have no merits.
