Here's a fun fact for you Battie, House Republicans hold their 37th vote to repeal Obamacare today. Current cost of those 37 votes?
$55 million.
And let’s not forget the only reason they’re wasting the time and money on today’s vote is because the freshmen demand it!!!!!
Awesome isn't it Battie? ;)
YOu mean the TEA Party.
The RINOs are no different than the Democrats who think ObamaKare is great for us but don't want any part of it anywhere near themselves.
The biggest plus for keeping ObamaKare to the Democrats (including RINO Democrats) is it is a fantastic vehicle for taxation to generate revenue that can be used for any other purpose other than ObamaKare. There is nothing in ObamaKare that mandates the taxes collected by ObamaKare be used to implement ObamaKare.
You people were duped... a-f**k*ng-gain.

Can't imagine anyone NOT thinking there'd have to be a few thousand emails about something of this magnitude between the CIA, State Department and the WH.

Releasing 100 emails is like firing the IRS commissioner one month before he was going to resign anyway thinking that would fix everything.

Cheney is still a hypocritical lying POS. he's the last person who should be attacking Obama for anything.
Got some examples of some lies from Cheney? He did admit he shot a lawyer. Even you have to love him for that... unless you're some kind of a lawyer-worshipping lawyer wannabe.

Tell us your assessment of the impact of the dot-com bust.
Tell us your assessment of the impact on the war the Arabs started with us.
Tell us how the Republicans managed to kick the shit out of the Arabs after they started a war with us, and during that war they turned over to the Democrats a 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollar deficit, and had added only 3.5 trillion dollars to the total debt while fighting a global war.
Tell us what the Democrats did to the deficit and debt since.
... well?
Dot Comm bust was a minor bump in the road & hardly felt other than investment firms.

When you go to war, you don't cut taxes. We have the same wars when Obama rook office so why do you give Bush cover for the wars & not Obama?

We should not have invaded Afghanistan. We should have weakened the Taliban military & gone in to get Bin Laden using surgical strike, & air power. Invasion forced us intonation building.

Iraq was a war of choice & Bush is to blame for all the deaths & costs.

Saudi Arabia is an Arab country. Are you claiming they attacked us?

Bush was President in 2007 & 2008 & every department of the Federal Government was run by a Republican.

The money to run those wars was not in that budget. Oh wait, if the spending isn't in the budget, it doesn't matter to you. I forgot.

You forgot to post the numbers, dufus. Start with what the Democrats were given in January, 2007: 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion deficit. 8.5 trillion debt. What happened after that?

A the time, there were no facts, dumbass. We had unconfirmed reports.
Whether it was a protest that escalated or an organized terror attack has zero influence on Hillary's political future or the re-election of Barack Obama.
Zero influence, except that Hillary either screwed the pooch and/or outright lied about Benghazi.

The Republican candidate in 2016 will not be as timid as Romney in pressing this issue, in the unlikely event that old lady Hillary is the nominee.

Benghazi was an Al Qaeda attack on the United States planned earlier in the spring to kidnap a US ambassador.
yeah. I'm betting these bufoons in the White House think the public doesn't need to know anything. That's why they invented the lies Obama spewed for two weeks afterward covering up the Al Qaeda attack.
How about we see all the emails, and we determine what we need to know.

I didn't have to read very far before I ran into your usual idiocy.
The key is revenue. Whatever it takes to increase revenue is what is necessary. Obviously, whatever happened during the war the Arabs started increased revenue. Revenue didn't decrease until the Democrats' Marxist CRA program collapsed the economy.
Your repitition of indoctrinated party line mantra is obvious.
So, tell us about how the increased revenue during the war was a bad thing. And, tell us how the Republicans reducing the deficit to 0.16 trillion dollars during a war was a bad thing.

You still haven't told us about how the Democrats sent that shrinking deficit into orbit, and how the Democrats have managed our government into the position where we have to continually borrow money just for the government to conduct a day-to-day existence. An idiot can tell you that government will collapse.

You probably don't know Democrats are helping Republicans repeal parts of Obamacare.
They want to be reelected. Obama's election days are over so they don't have to keep defending this monstrosity anymore.
Anyway,$55 million - if they are successful in repealing it - is a drop in the bucket compared to what it's going to cost us if it isn't.
It's fruitless posturing, something you seem to be familiar with too. They won't be successful and they know it.So it's a waste of money. Even the CBO can't be bothered. Lol. Symbolic votes are one thing. The House has spent about $55 MILLION so far voting to repeal Obamacare. Lol. You are a duplicitous hypocrite Batty!

When your candidate says the word "Benghazi" the audience will break out in laughter recalling how the Republicans made such asses out of themselves by taking a tragic situation & trying to twist it into political gain.

You people were duped... a-f**k*ng-gain.
Why do Republicans keep lying to the American people about Obamacare? Won't the GOP ever learn? " Ryan, March 10: What we also say is, end the raid of Medicare from Obamacare. You have to remember, all of that money that was taken from Medicare was to pay for Obamacare. We say we get rid of Obamacare, we end the raid and we apply those savings to Medicare to make Medicare more solvent and extend the solvency of the Medicare trust fund.

The problem is, the Affordable Care Act can’t take money away from Medicare. Instead it reduces the future growth of Medicare spending — primarily Medicare Part A, which is funded mainly by payroll taxes. We explained Part A’s financing in an Aug. 24 piece titled “Medicare’s ‘Piggy Bank.’”

The payroll taxes collected can’t be taken away from Medicare; instead, just as Ryan says his plan would do, savings from reduced spending are applied to Medicare to “extend the solvency of the Medicare trust fund.” The program doesn’t take in enough in taxes to pay for current benefits, so spending less than was expected in the future boosts Medicare’s finances.

When Medicare doesn’t need to spend payroll tax money right away, that money goes into the Medicare Part A trust fund. In lieu of the dollars, Medicare receives a Treasury bond that it can cash in anytime it wants. Treasury must pay the bond, even if it has spent the original money on something else (which is often the case).

So Obama simply can’t take this money away from Medicare."Check this out: http://www.factcheck.org/2013/03/gop-budget-r...

And that "bump in the road" dot-com bust had a significant impact. Would you care to tell us how much in investment was lost? How about telling us how many companies, oh, hell, in just the state of California went out of business.
And, you continually ignore the fact that when the Arabs started a global war against the United States, it was necessary to increase spending beyond what had become the norm.
How about you close your eyes and concentrate. Then, repeat over and over, "I will speak something truthful. I will speak something truthful. I will speak something truthful...."
If you repeat this often enough, I guarantee you at least one word of your next post will begin to resemble the truth.
