Republicans only control 1/3 of the power on Capital Hill. Wait until they win back the Senate and Harry Reid is no longer the "Senator of No"...before you start complaining.
The ball has been in your side's court for five years - seven if you count the last two years of the Bush administration.
Republicans are just itching to get a turn at bat. Hopefully, their turn is coming. Then we'll see what they have to offer. The Senate and the Executive Branch don't care what they have to offer and aren't listening to them anyway.
Right.

And in 2008, they were the ones with 2/3rds.

Again, the reich wing offers nothing....

We all were flustered. Just watching Obama being sworn into office.
Yup! I can believer you were all flustered!

"...On January 20, 2009, Roberts, who was reciting the oath from memory rather than using the customary card, uttered the word "faithfully" out of sequence.

The Constitution requires the president to say, "I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.".."

Let's see....

Obama was senator, then moved to a higher position....

Palin quit because she couldn't stand the heat of being governor of a state of 600,000 because of her back office dealings that came to light.

Biden's DOCUMENTED Racism - No Race Card Required

1. Joey B. says “you cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.”

Well, you ARE the joke, Joey B.!

2. Joey B. decides to try out his Indian accent on the campaign trail in 2012. In a speech criticizing Mitt Romney for outsourcing, Biden donned an Indian accent to mock the notion of Indians trying to speak English.

“How many times you get the call,‘I like to talk to you about your … credit card,” he said. Then abandoning the mock accent said; “It’s a little over done.”

Uh, yeah, just a bit there Joey B.

3. According to Joey B., Barack Obama is the “first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”

The FIRST one, eh Joey B.? LMAO!

But you're wrong. Michigan is the 9th state to pass legislation requiring public and private insurance plans to separate out abortion coverage.
Republican State Rep. Nancy Jenkins defended the bill. "I don’t think elective abortion should be a part of insurance," she said. "This doesn’t affect access to abortion. It will still be legal when this law takes effect. Who should be required to pay? Not Michigan taxpayers."
If a woman is raped, she can get the proper care at any hospital including prevention of pregnancy.
Women who choose an elective abortion should pay for it herself. Taking birth control is an easy way to prevent unwanted pregnancies. And it's free now. No excuses.
why waste time passing meaningless legislation that conflicts with federal law???...

spend the time instead gaining the power to repeal ObamaKKKare....

It's still the law. Nine states passed legislation that separates elective abortion from being covered by taxpayers of that state.

Nothing is going to happen with ObamaCare until after November 2016. Even if Republicans take back the Senate next year, Obama will veto every effort to repeal it. It can be done even so, but it would be a long process - unless it collapses under its own dead next year.

Those of you on the left know the next two weeks is just a lull before the next shoe drops, right?

Employers will start dropping employer-based insurance after January 1, 2014.

The last shoe that dropped with privately insured cancellations will seem like a baby shoe in comparison.

It’s official — the government of the United States of Obama consists of boobs and bores and is led by a narcissist. It is no consolation that Great Britain joins us in racing to the bottom.

President Obama’s flirting with Denmark’s prime minister would be shameful on any occasion. That it happened at the memorial for Nelson Mandela only adds to the embarrassment.

But the “selfie” episode also symbolizes the greater global calamity of Western decline. With British prime minister David Cameron playing the role of Obama’s giggling wingman, the “look at me” moment confirms we have unserious leaders in a dangerously serious time.

Iran marches toward nuclear weapons and already there is talk in military circles that a nuclear-armed Iran could mean mushroom clouds in the Mideast within five years.

China is flexing its muscles throughout Asia, its ships brazenly confronting ours on the high seas. Russia is expanding its writ in the Arab lands and in Eastern Europe while making casual threats about bombing America. Syria’s Assad uses chemical weapons and Obama and Cameron rattle little sabers before meekly agreeing to become his partner.

The sign-language interpreter wasn’t the only fake at the Mandela funeral. Obama and Cameron were posing as world leaders.

BOB WOODWARD: I think this budget deal worked, quite frankly - let's go right to the center of this - because Obama was not part of the negotiations. He is not a good negotiator. And I agree with Bill. I think Paul Ryan comes off as somebody who no one, even Bill is not going to say Ryan is a conservative. He is a conservative, but the philosophy that he employed here is very significant: sitting down with the Democrats and saying what is our common ground? What can we agree on?
