You have it backwards. The Republicans have given everything but the kitchen sink to big business. It was actually 2006 that things began to fall apart. Bush vetoed virtually everything Democrats came up with to fix the mess. Bush finally caved late in 2008 when the economy was in free fall. It takes several years for economic policy to take effect barring any major changes. The stimulus package Obama implemented stopped the economic free fall in it's tracks. Bush's last budget ran an annual deficit of 1.2 trillion dollars a year. Republicans have blocked every attempt at a budget that protected the little guy and made the rich pay a fairer share. There is not a single Republican budget that does not attempt to take more from those who don't have enough to live on while throwing more money at millionaires and billionaires. Republicans are protecting abusive tax breaks for the wealthy while cutting food stamps and health care from the poor. Democrats have voted to keep tax breaks for the average worker while Republicans have insisted on eliminating the tax break on withholding. It is Republicans who have refused to extend unemployment benefits for those who lost their jobs primarily because of their laissez faire capitalist policies. Those same policies have nearly destroyed our financial system two times. The first time was in the 1920s and the latest was the recession in 2007. The stock market has nearly always performed better when a Democrat is president despite the fact that it has been Republicans who mainly give tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires. As for individual rights, please explain how the GOP can claim they promote individual rights when the most conservative judges on the supreme court do not believe in a Right to Privacy or in the rights mentioned in the 9th amendment which guarantees individual rights not enumerated in the constitution?

The GOP is in Disarray. Your voter base is shrinking not growing. Your Tea Party is but a shell now. They haven't even held a meeting since July 2012. You espouse this grand idea that you and only you know how to run things and know whats good for everyone. Your media pundits are still spewing the same rewashed rhetoric they used right up until the poles closed in 2012. Now they are talking once again as if they were ordained and destined to gain the White House and Control of the lower houses. This is still a democracy and if you do the math you will see your party falling father and farther behind in votes. We the Democrats are the majority and you aren't selling anything we are buying. Your candidates do not embody, project or personify trust. Your power is has become hollow. Your "I am better than You" attitudes do nothing to gain you votes. Most all of you old rich guys should just plan on taking it with you because there isn't much else you can do with it these days. The Kochs and other Political Players like them are failing now. The more you all play your game the more you reject voters. People over at Squawk and here at the Journal keep on writing and keep on talking but don't fool yourselves or try to fool the rest of us. Better if you just talk economics and leave the slants out of it.

The BHO cut and pasted diatribes on here are all fraudulent adulterated posts, probably being fed to him by some right wing propoganda producing organization not unlike Jimmy Damints Heritage Action fascists organization.
They're stealing the US government from the people and handing it over to thier energy company and healthcare overlord benefactors.

This BHO is a duped fool and isn't performing to their strict standards. Thryre thinking of letting his sorry asss go. They aren't getting their moneys worth because he's such a stooge. Not that they don't like stooges because that's actually who buys into this phoney baloney crap that they disperse but this guy is just a little dangerous because of his unstable psychological problems that can be attributed to his horrible relationship with his mother....

Though Jane Fonda’s private foundation has nearly $800,000 in assets, the group has not made a charitable contribution during the last five years for which it has filed federal tax returns, an apparent violation of Internal Revenue Service rules.

According to the Jane Fonda Foundation’s most recent tax return--filed last year and covering calendar year 2011--the organization’s cash, stock, and bond portfolio was valued at $798,133. The filing lists the 75-year-old actress as the foundation’s president and chairman of the board, and reports that she devotes 10 hours a week to the charitable group.

In the most recent tax return, Fonda’s foundation reported making no contributions or grants. Prior tax returns show that the organization, which is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, similarly made no payouts in 2010, 2009, 2008, and 2007. In 2006, the group made a single $1000 donation to the Atlanta Obstetric and Gynecology Society.

IRS regulations require private foundations to make annual distributions totaling at least five percent of its assets. The rule is intended to prevent foundations from stockpiling and investing funds (while never making contributions, gifts, or grants). If adhered to, the so-called Five Percent Rule would have forced Fonda to distribute a minimum of about $40,000 in 2011.

If a private foundation fails to make required minimum distributions, it faces stiff IRS penalties.

While Fonda’s foundation has not been making donations, the group has tried to grow its stash via the stock market. For example, the foundation’s last tax return lists 166 separate trades--involving thousands of stock shares--that netted about $2200.

The Fonda foundation’s returns show that most of its assets were provided years ago by the performer herself, though more than $320,000 came from a Connecticut firm that has booked speaking engagements for the two-time Academy Award winner.

Immigration Coverage: The Biased Leading the Clueless
December 9, 2013
Politico ran a piece the other day on White House fears that Obama will share the political blame if the current amnesty push fails — i.e., that his attempts to pin all thfreee responsibility on the Republicans won’t be successful.
It was an interesting look at the tensions between the administration and its outside pro-amnesty supporters, and it’s worth a look. But one sentence struck me as shedding light on a broader problem with media coverage of immigration:
"The White House is very touchy about any criticism from its allies for Obama’s deportation policies, which have sent away more people during his tenure than all other presidents combined."
The factual assertion here is simply false. No matter how you calculate the number of people “sent away,” it’s simply not true that Obama’s done more than “all other presidents combined.” The Excel files are online for anyone to check. Table 39, here, shows that during just the Clinton and Bush administrations, Fiscal Years 1993–2008, about 2.9 million foreigners were “removed”(that’s the category used when referring to “deportations”). That’s compared to fewer than 2 million so far under Obama, and even that’s the result of statistical trickery, as my colleague Jessica Vaughan has explained.

Why There's No Unemployment Insurance in Budget Deal
BY Dan Friedman

House and Senate negotiators cut a modest budget deal Tuesday, but for many Democrats, they left out one big piece of unfinished business: extending federal unemployment benefits.

The program gives unemployed individuals access to emergency compensation after they have exhausted their state benefits, which typically last for 26 weeks. The federal program, beefed up in the 2009 economic stimulus bill, now allows benefits for up to 73 weeks. It is set to expire Dec. 28th, a step that would cost 1.3 million people benefits.

Even our vets cant find jobs,after they fought for our country to keep these fat cats safe......the GOP has denied extention of unemployment benefits in the new budget paln for 2014 for vets and others that their checks will end at the end of the month.......Why do the Republicans hate America so much? Why did the Republicans extend benefits several times when GW Bush was in office????

Meantime::

President George W. Bush.

•Unemployment Compensation Extension Act of 2008 (HR 6867): This bill, which extended benefits, passed the House on Oct. 3, 2008, by a vote of 368 to 28. Of the 170 voting Republicans, 142 or 84 percent supported the extension. The measure passed the Senate by a voice vote, a parliamentary often used when legislation is not controversial.

•Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2008 (HR 2642): This bill provided federal money to states to make emergency unemployment compensation payments to workers who had exhausted all rights to regular compensation. On final passage, it sailed through the House by a vote of 416 to 12, with 186 or 95 percent of voting Republicans supporting it. It passed the Senate 92 to 6. Among Republicans, 42 of 48 supported the measure.

•Katrina Emergency Assistance Act of 2006 (S 1777): This bill, which made unemployment assistance available to people affected by Hurricane Katrina, passed by voice vote in the House and by unanimous consent in the Senate.

•Unemployment Compensation Amendments of 2003 (HR 2185): This bill, which extended unemployment benefits by 26 weeks, passed overwhelmingly in the House by a vote of 409 to 19. Among Republicans, 204 or 91 percent voted in favor of the measure. The bill passed by unanimous consent in the Senate.

•Emergency Wartime Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2003 (HR 1559): This bill provided extended benefits for displaced airline and related workers in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. It passed the House by a voice vote and the Senate with unanimous consent.

•P.L. 108-1 (S 23): This bill, which provided for a five-month extension of the Temporary Extended Unemployment Compensation Act of 2002, passed the House by a vote of 416 to 4. Among 222 voting Republicans, 218 supported the measure.

•Job Creation and Worker Assistance Act of 2002 (HR 3090): This bill, which extended unemployment benefits for up to 13 weeks for those who had exhausted their 26 weeks of regular coverage, passed the House by a vote of 417 to 3. All 218 voting Republicans supported it. In the Senate, the vote was 85 to 9, with only one Republican opposing the bill.
On the question of the Obama's statement that, in the Bush years, "Republican senators voted several times to extend emergency unemployment benefits," the president is correct.

Rep. Issa accuses HHS of criminally obstructing probe into ObamaCare website
December 12, 2013
The Health and Human Services Department has told contractors working on the problem-plagued ObamaCare website not to release documents to congressional investigators, a mandate slammed as “criminal obstruction” by House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa.
The Dec. 6 letter from CMS official Daniel Kane says that although the department understands Congress’ need for documents to continue its probe into the issues with Healthcare.gov , the agency is concerned about security risks from releasing testing information to third parties.
Therefore, the letter states, the agency has decided to not allow contractors to release any documents to any third party, telling the contractors to send congressional investigators to CMS, who will handle the request themselves.
The letter was sent after the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee contacted 11 of the top contractors on the ObamaCare website as part of its investigation into its problems.
In a press release Wednesday, Issa, R-Calif., said the HHS’s request amounts to criminal obstruction, and he has sent a letter to HHS Secretary Sebelius demanding the agency have no further communication with the contractors about the probe.

Ex Nazi racist tea bagger and former FIXED NEWS employee Glenn Beck goes after Specker of the House and Snitch McConnell

Glenn Beck attacks ‘worthless’ John Boehner

Conservative radio host Glenn Beck went off on Republican leadership after the House passed a budget compromise Thursday, calling House Speaker John Boehner “worthless” and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell a “liar.”

“I think John Boehner is one of the prime examples of worthless, worthless Republicans,” Beck said Thursday on Mark Levin’s radio show.“All these people saying,‘Hey, the Republicans aren’t as bad,’ no. I think they actually might be worse, because they claim to be something that they’re not.”

Beck told Levin, who called Boehner “utterly feckless,” that Boehner and those like him “have got to go.”

“I will not vote for another Republican who is just a Republican who says,‘Well, you know, we got to do what we got to do.’ No we don’t, we have to take a stand,” Beck said, citing Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) for standing up.

The pair advocated a strategy for defunding Obamacare that led to the government shutdown in October.

John Boehner: Conservative Groups Have Lost All Credibility

WASHINGTON -- House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) assailed conservative groups Thursday for opposing the latest budget deal, saying they had crossed a line and lost their credibility.

"This budget agreement takes giant steps in the right direction," Boehner said at a press conference. "But when groups come out and criticize something they've never seen, you begin to wonder just how credible those actions are."

Boehner has been reticent in the past to criticize conservative outside groups, such as Heritage Action and Club for Growth. Some of the groups have had a considerable influence on the tea party faction among House Republicans, and were the rallying force behind the effort to either defund Obamacare or shut down the federal government.

For the first time, Boehner acknowledged that these groups pushed Republicans into an unsuccessful strategy that he didn't favor. He expressed particular outrage that one of the groups later said it knew the shutdown strategy wasn't going to work.

"Are you kidding me?" Boehner shouted.

"Frankly I think they're misleading their followers. I think they're pushing our members in places they don't want to be," he added. "And frankly I just think they've lost all credibility."

This does not solve the long-term budget deal or change the GOPs version of what they would want as a budget in the long run?

No it only postpones it because, if they keep the majority during next year’s election than they will give us the same line they gave us to explain ignoring last year’s presidential election which is that the American people voted for them to continue to do it their way which will be the unfair way and again the obstruction will follow.

The GOP played this trick before except they used the ACA and all the lies that followed to win the majority in 2010. I won’t be gullible in thinking that they wouldn’t do the same next year because, it’s not like they earned the benefit of the doubt.

The media can praise the Speaker and this deal all they want as for me I need more action that would show me he intends to stay true to his bravado yesterday instead of it being an anomaly. He would sell me if he added the extension of the unemployment benefits to the deal or passes it on another separate bill and even than I'll need more action especially on the important issues.

They won’t on either issue and denying the extension will add struggle to the people needing it including 20,000 combat vets! Please be vigilant people because, I’ve seen this trick before.
