Moderate Republicanism is a tendency that increasingly defies ideological analysis and instead requires psychological analysis. The psychological mechanism is fairly obvious. The radicalization of the GOP has placed unbearable strain on those few moderates torn between their positions and their attachment to party. Many moderate conservatives have simply broken off from the party, at least in its current incarnation, and are hoping or working to build a sane alternative. Those who remain must escape into progressively more baroque fantasies.

Would You Knowingly Let a Thief into Your Home?

How much sympathy would you garner from your friends if a thief stole everything you owned after you knowingly invited him into your home?

That’s what House conservatives do when they support “the rule” on bad pieces of legislation.

http://www.redstate.com/jayhawk73/2013/01/18/...

.... House conservatives could have blocked No Child Left Behind, the 2002 Farm Bill, the Medicare Prescription Drug Benefit, and the 2011 debt deal – just to name a few — if only they had voted against the rules in the same way that they opposed those bills.

Death…. no one can match Pelosi/Democrats in Spending!! When Pelosi took office Jan. 4, 2007 the National Dept. was (8.6 trillion) at the close of business on Oct. 22, the Dept. stood at (13.67 trillion) an increase of approximately 5 trillion., the $3.22 trillion in new debt accumulated during the record-setting 111th Congress!! Today our Debt 16.5 trillion so your observation is correct Pelosi and the Democrats during their control of both House/Senate created Historic Debt!!
Well you're right, no one but Republicans can match or out do Democrats on spending. Since the right-wing Contract on America year over year spending increases by Republicans has averaged 8% while Democrats have increased it 7.5%.

Way to raise the bar Republicans!

WE agreed (union) to take a pay cut in order to keep our Kasich-strapped, billionaire give away, school system operating...Ohio is doing much better now, especially when giving Rove apoplexy in re-electing the POTUS...WE made an investment that should eventually pay off. However, I'm really sick of the lot of you with no sense of civic responsibility to future generations. BTW, did Wal-Mart up you to ten bucks an hour? Did it interfere with your Medicaid?

I don't know about anywhere else in the country but around here married people around here can live quite well. 40 hours x 4 = 160 x $10 x 2 = $3200. Add in a little overtime and you could clear $3000 a month. Around here that is a lot. Even with a couple of children.

No, I pulled it out of raw budget data.

Here, with a bit of simple math you can do it yourself:

It even comes in a convenient spreadsheet so you don't have to take off your shoes to do the cipherin'.
