I know it is difficult for Democrats to fathom not voting in groups, but what you witnessed was Representatives doing what their constituents asked them to do, and they will do it again in February when Obama, and his 40 thieves come back to blackmail Congress again. And they will keep doing it until the thieves are sent home. We are not a Democracy where Obama's mobs can win.

This is what we all knew. You own the shutdown.

President Obama: We're winning.

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.
Your correct and we see what a debacle the rollout is. Obozo administration can't even be honest and say how many people have enrolled which clearly states they're embarrassed.If the O admin. had the millions they projected signed up they would be spiking the football.Sticker shock is hitting people hard and this will cause the unconstitutional law to implode.What happens when you f*** Americans over.You get bit in the A$$!

No what is happening is our founding fathers are rolling over in their graves at the way this administration is trampling over the constitution and violating peoples rights everyday and it's only getting worse.

Yes we own the shutdown, and hopefully they will shut it down again in February. We have a useless, bunch of Democrats that would rather try to blackmail to get their their way then compromise. Not a leader among them. A bunch of thieving grifters.

Senator Cruz will have the same people voting with him in February that he had October 1st, If we want the government shut down we will shut it down!!! And we will again make Obama, and his 40 thieves look bad when they are mean to the veterans, and the children while they spend millions on themselves. We want all people to get a good look at the Democrats in action.

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.
hahahahahahahahaha
trust me, if it weren't for the public opinion, boner would jump right on the bandwagon with the so called "establishment" just like he did with libya. He a little bit different than the "republicans" mentioned.

I love America, but I hate what is being done to her. We will continue to try to return her to Greatness one shutdown at a time. At some point the cheap, good for nothing politicians won't have enough money to live like Kings, and we will elect people who put America first. In the meantime we will make it as uncomfortable for the useless politicians as possible.

deflecting. The shutdown hurt politicians less than anyone. Do you think that Cruz is getting less money from his sponsors now or his ego isn't being fed by people dumber than him while the economy took a hit of at least 24 billion? You are completely off base.

Terd Cruz and the Tea Party have pretty much committed political suicide. The powers that be will turn on them and they will lose their funding. In politics.... no funding - no voice!

The Taxed Enough Already people get their money from the grass roots, and they know what they are paying for, and why they need the TEA people to speak for them. They don't lack for money. The Obamacare debacle has done more to raise money for the TEA people then anything else going on. And they don't even start asking for funds until the first of the year.

in office.fireman to become maybe better putting out fires quicker .
kinsey firemen are rookies when it comes to fight fires by the time it take them to get to a fire sometime its to late bad for towns that just have volunteer firemen. even worse when the driver of the fire truck when he gets to a fire and jumps off the truck and does not put brake on .we people have seen this in kinsey alabama the truck was going down hill when a firemen told the driver of the truck it was going down hill the driver just got on in time to stop the truck. yea just think if that truck got away what could had maybe happened.then.. yea we got huge sewage bills and water bills tell them to build a new wastewater treatmentplant with that grant $224,036 they got they trying to make a old house into they say senor house center well he town needs cheaper sewage and water bills they just trying to spend the grant on maybe a 60 years old house let the termites fix it up. we need full time real firemans like most towns maybe got let them sleep were we vote at show them how small the room is when we try to maybe vote we got no private place to vote in private.how can we get to vote in private for us a new president in 2016 hope they don't waste that grant maybe they need to let termites fix it up it looks like maybe a haunted house. we like green eggs and ham I said I am.
