Just because Obama won our reps shouldn't vote unless its the way he wants them too? If that doesn't happen we skip the whole voting part and push bs lobbyist drivel through the courts and call it "law". Do any of you obamabots even know how many eligible voters didn't vote for obama let alone anybody for president at all?? It makes the number of people who did bvote for him look pretty pathetic. Just sayn,

The funny part is that these t-flash-in-the-panners will never have a lasting impact on DC.

A candid remark from Sen. Debbie Stabenow on the greasy canadian: When ted cruz is speaking, republicans leave the senate floor.

Oh, no. New poll gives the taxed Enough Already 6 points higher approval then they had last Monday. Americans are turning on both parties. There was no winner in the shutdown mess, and everyone lost. But the idea Cruz didn't play an important part is silly. He kept Obamacare in the news everyday, and it is still there.

and how would they achieve a lasting impact???? Look at all the wasteful spending and decide the first thing to cut are benefits to deceased military?? Keep watching those approval ratings and remember that they might not fit in with the beltway criminals but they are exposing them and the public won't blame them for those actions when the we waste money on mechanical bulls and and funding msnbc. Maybe they should let a 4 year old child decide what gets cut first as they would make what is obviously a better decision politically. Let's start buy slashing the IRS and leave our widowed military families alone. Pretty simple to see through this crap. To act like this was the only ultimatum is preposterous and is terrible reasoning. It shows in the approval ratings of congress and POTUS.

haven't seen any poles about world opinion, post a link! As far as the opinion of voters in the united states, I'm pretty sure you're wrong. They might be mad about the shut down but for other reasons. Like the fact that they won't vote on the huge new unpopular tax that is obamacare, just push it through courts. Then their answer to the outcry of the opinion of a congress that refuses to work is to do even less and hurt military families acting like there was no other option (some people are that stupid), insisting law can be written from the bench.

maybe because they don't answer to lobbyists. They aren't chrony capitalists who write laws that benefit insurance, pharmaceutical, and banking corporations while the insurance premiums of hard working americans who live paycheck to paycheck go up. But why wonder? Its pretty obvious congress doesn't align itself with the people. Just look at how bad it had to get before they shifted their tone on Syria.

Crackpots? What is a tax??? How does our congress work? Does congress vote on laws or do they get passed from the bench$ That's how it works? Establishment? Of what, liars who cheat people out of a voice in our litigation system for corporate greed? I agree.

It's refreshing to see you're blaming boner's teahadist House for signing-off on all that 'wasteful' spending. After all, they constantly remind us they hold the purse strings.

Our Representatives vote the way they are told to vote by their constituents. Democrats vote the way Zoros tells them to vote. I actually talked to my Congressman last month. He is a fiscal Conservative He is also pro Military which is why we support him.

SO, it's the old folks back home that put boner's teahadist House up to backing that wasteful spending. After all, they hold the purse strings, especially when the constituents tell them how to vote.

Oink.

btw: pro-military = code for chickenhawk.
