When I voted last night the lady couldn't find me in the binder (I have a very common name). I saw myself and pointed to the name and said "that's me". At that point she handed me a pen and told me to sign under the name. That was it. I am 100% positive that I could have gone to other polling locations and said my name and found someone in their binder with the same name who had not yet voted. Heck I could have gone and said another common name and randomly picked one from that list. The judges can't question you on it.

Obama wins, America wins. The Republican Party is nothing but a bunch of losers who hate America. They could not win the Presidency, gain control of the Senate or increase their control of the House. They just lost all around and they have no idea it is not the Dems, it is the Republicans themselves that caused it.

I voted for the Voter ID thing but I am actually kind of glad it did not pass since I don't think I should have to pay for other peoples ID's and have to pay for my drivers license too. Free ID's for everyone or no one is only fair.

You can have Michelle - the more she talks the more she confirms what a complete wacko she really is.

Then you could have been that ONE case of voter fraud the GOP has been desperately searching for to justify all these silly and unnecessary laws.

In every single state where Voter ID was on the ballot or passed by the legislature the GOP backers have been forced to admit that there is no proof that voter fraud is even a problem.

Related: Fiscal cliff would cause recession

Meanwhile, on Tuesday night, House Speaker John Boehner said the fact that the GOP retained control of the House means "there is no mandate for raising tax rates." He later added in a tweet, "If there's a mandate, it's for parties to work together to help our economy grow."


half the LEGAL voters dislike what barry soetoro has done. Now the TRUE test ( RECESSION ) brought on by socialist rule.

LMAOROTFU~! Sorry NUTCASE...

A few lessons can be drawn from the numbers. First, the Bush tax cuts have had a huge damaging effect. If all of them expired as scheduled at the end of 2012, future deficits would be cut by about half, to sustainable levels. Second, a healthy budget requires a healthy economy; recessions wreak havoc by reducing tax revenue. Government has to spur demand and create jobs in a deep downturn, even though doing so worsens the deficit in the short run. Third, spending cuts alone will not close the gap. The chronic revenue shortfalls from serial tax cuts are simply too deep to fill with spending cuts alone. Taxes have to go up.

In future decades, when rising health costs with an aging population hit the budget in full force, deficits are projected to be far deeper than they are now. Effective health care reform, and a willingness to pay more taxes, will be the biggest factors in controlling those deficits.

Since when do we make laws based on something that MIGHT be happening? Usually we have SOME basis to take such actions.

The GOP rationale seemed to be "a Democrat got elected therefore they must be cheating".

Solving a problem that doesn't exist, especially when the solution can actually stop people, primarily from the opposing party, from voting, looks terribly suspicious.

And I'm sorry but I can't help notice that it's not Democratic legislatures proposing these laws - only GOP legislatures.

Bush tax cuts are just another of the Bush era policies that Obama has not only maintained, but expanded. The Bush tax cuts had a sunset of 2010, so why are they now scheduled to end in 2013? Because Obama extended them and added hundreds of billions more in cuts on top of them.

So you don't have any proof that I post under other names? Sounds like you should support poser ID laws. Of course since you are the one who is actually posting under multiple names (I have already proven that), maybe you wouldn't support them.

Look at all the states with voter ID laws. How many people were prevented from voting?

We also know voter fraud is happening. In MN (even with it being next to impossible to catch) we have caught 10 cases in the last 12 years. How many were not caught?

Also all laws are on the books to either prevent things that may happen from happening or to punish after they do happen. Right now our voting system is like having roads with out any police enforcement. Should we just assume noone is speeding?

P.S. We have TSA to prevent something that has never happened in MN. Should we get rid of them as well?
