The little whiney communist scum Democrats don't care if the DemokRATS and Obamaqueer screws the majority of Americans, as long as their perverted special interest groups (their voters - welfare queens) vote for them. They actually think it's funny.
The problem is, they are actually screwing their own kids & grandkids, they're just too stupid to realize it.
I agree with you. We need to kill this pig called Obamacare. My hope is it collapses on it's own weight and the DemokRATS pay for their arrogance & ignorance.
If they actually cared about their kids and grandkids, they wouldn't be getting 100 percent of the vote from a culture that abandons their children as a matter of cultural tradition.
They are Marxist communists. They are only interested in imposing a government on the people that has no opposition to it. Like all Marxists that have ever existed, they don't mind if they have to murder half the population to put this dictatorship in place.
They, themselves, aren't communists. This is obvious when you look at how they excuse themselves from the Marxist laws they write for everyone else. The only reason they promote the Marxist communist agenda is that is a convenient vehicle for them to be one of the elite ruling class and enjoy the priviledges and power given to the elite ruling class. And, as a benefit, when Marxist communism becomes the government standard, they don't have to tolerate anyone saying anything they don't like. They can just kill them.
That is the mentality we are allowing to run our government today.

Republicans Still Have No Idea What They Want
With the Obamacare fight seemingly over, there's no one who can put forward a strategy and rally the party around it.
A fight that began over Obamacare is now about ... well, what exactly? Last Wednesday, the Washington Examiner quoted Rep. Marlin Stutzman of Indiana saying,“We’re not going to be disrespected. We have to get something out of this. And I don’t know what that even is.”
Five days later, there's no sign they're any closer to figuring it out. Take this quote from Rep. Dennis Ross, a Florida Republican, in the New York Times:
“Republicans have to realize how many significant gains we’ve made over the last three years — and we have, not only in cutting spending but in really turning the tide on other things,” Mr. Ross said.“We can’t lose all that when there’s no connection now between the shutdown and the funding of Obamacare.”
“I think now it’s a lot about pride,” he said.
Like Stutzman's, Ross's take is striking in its desperate machismo. He admits Republicans have lost the ACA fight that inspired them, but sees this as no reason to stop the fight. The problem is that you can't ask for "pride" in return for raising the debt ceiling. When it comes to specific ideas, the GOP agenda ranges from non-existent to vague to mercurial, and since the party leadership is now taking its cues from a small conservative faction, there's no one who can step forward and unite the party under a single, coherent banner.
Speaker John Boehner's appearance on ABC's This Week demonstrates the Republican bind. Three times, host George Stephanopoulos showed Boehner doing 180s under duress from his caucus. It's easy to see why the speaker wouldn't want to commit to any new proposals, since he can't rely on Republicans to back him.

And that explains the pile of bills from the House stacked up on Harry Reid's desk he has to obstruct from getting to the Senate floor for a vote that would end the government shut down.

GOP funding BS.
In Shutdown Sham House Republicans Vote To Restore Funding To Already Funded WIC Program
House Republicans are still trying to fool the American people into believing that they really want to fund the government. The reason why this vote was a sham was that WIC has enough funding to last through the month of October. The National WIC Association strongly came out against the Republican resolution to restore funding,“Funding the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) in this piecemeal, short-term, stop-gap manner is not an acceptable solution. WIC has sufficient funds to operate through the month of October giving Congress more than sufficient time to pass a “clean” continuing resolution followed by the already marked-up full year FY-2014 House and Senate Agriculture Appropriations bills to fund WIC and the other critical child nutrition programs through the end of the 2014 fiscal year.”
Republicans like Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) took to the House floor to literally scream that this vote was about the children. What about the children? However, it is difficult to take the House Republicans concern for women and children seriously when earlier this year they voted to cut spending on WIC so deeply that 375,000 to 425,000 eligible low income women and children will be thrown off the program.
This vote was the latest move in the failed Republican strategy to try to make Democrats look bad. It is almost hysterical to watch Republicans trying to sell themselves as the party of compromise after they have spent every waking moment of the Obama years rejecting and refusing all compromise.
Republicans can’t escape the fact that they are the ones who demanded changes to the ACA. They are the ones who linked an unrelated issue to funding the government. This is their shutdown. No amount of PR piecemeal funding votes will win the day for them, when they could put an end to this crisis immediately by simply voting to open the government.

Speaking as someone who worked their entire life to get into one of those "cadillac plans", I want that Marxist welfare program to disappear. I don't care what it takes to make it disappear. Just make it disappear. I don't care how it happens. Just make it happen.

The Democrats and progressives have the country on a path to total dysfunction, which can be summarized by what is culturally popular, like Obama. Dysfunctional style is more important than moral substance and virtue.

JUST 1 EXAMPLE OF WHAT SEPARATES LIBERALS FROM CONSERVATIVES: Miley Cyrus is America's id. She is all desire -- for fame, for attention, for money - without any mediating influences like conscience, character, prudence or taste.

America celebrates her. She gets some criticism, but she can laugh it off, because she knows she's cool. Do you doubt her importance? She hosted Saturday Night Live this week -- the apotheosis of hip.

Reviewing her performance on SNL, USA Today declared that Cyrus had "steered clear of controversy". Seems low standards are contagious. Riffing about her VMA act, Cyrus boasted that she heard from "angry mothers" and "turned on fathers." Nice.

During the show, she and the SNL cast performed an incredibly RAUNCHY version of one of her songs (but I repeat myself) keyed to the government shutdown.

Cyrus gyrated and faux-masturbated as Michele Bachmann, while Taram Killam was featured as a very gay, pierced, underwear-clad John Boehner who humped whatever was nearby.

Ah, nothing like good fun for Saturday Night Live and America's tongue-lolling sweetheart.

We all need to loosen up, don't we? It's just a joke. SNL portrays Barack Obama in similar ways all the time, RIGHT?

The hippest show on TV illustrates the cultural chasm that separates liberals and conservatives:
Liberals laugh as conservative politicians are depicted in
porn-style videos.

BUT IF A RODEO CLOWN DONS AN OBAMA MASK,
IT'S A MONTH-LONG SCANDAL.
(The rodeo organizers apologized to Obama.)

Even if SNL were to turn the tables and lampoon Democrats in similar fashion, conservatives would be repelled by the vulgarity, not amused.

Liberals get what they deserve and voted for in O'bama's democrat controlled home town: ROTFLMAO
Part-time government employees working for Cook County, Illinois — President Obama’s home county — may soon lose their employer-funded health insurance and instead have to move onto Obamacare’s healthcare exchanges.
That move would once again directly contradict President Obama’s promise that Americans who like their health plans could keep them.
In a press release from the Office of Cook County Board President, Democrat Toni Preckwinkle announced that she has proposed that all part time local government employees be removed from the county’s health plan or pay the entirety of it from their own funds starting July 1, 2014.
“The proposal would require employees and officials who receive less than full-time County pay to pick up the full share of their health benefits,” Preckwinkle said in the statement.“Those who choose not to will have the option of obtaining healthcare through a health insurance marketplace, accessing healthcare through other employment, or accessing the healthcare plan of a spouse, partner or family member. The change would take place July 1, 2014 to allow individuals time to review their choices. The County estimates that the plan will affect roughly 400 individuals, including Cook County circuit court and associate judges, part-time crossing guards and commissioners for the Chicago Board of Elections.”
Preckwinkle’s office said that the proposal would save the county $2.2 million in 2014 and $4 million annually after that. Preckwinkle said the move was done for the sake of equity, fairness, and fiscal discipline.
“We want to ensure that County employees and officials have access to health benefits, but the approach has to be fair and it needs to make sense financially,” President Preckwinkle said.“We’re taking reasonable steps to improve how we manage the County’s benefits.”
Naomi Lopez-Bauman, a healthcare policy analyst with the Illinois Policy Institute, told TheDC that she isn’t surprised by the announcement because Obamacare has led to increased costs for businesses, municipal governments, and colleges all over the country.

What’s Wrong With the Republican Right?

W. James Antle III

Conservative scorecards don't explain why the GOP fails to get policy results.

There is one more step in this evolution: evaluating whether conservatives are actually producing results. Too often, conservatives measure that by the volume of liberal outrage a Republican political figure inspires.

But while Reagan and Michele Bachmann were equally panned on the New York Times editorial page, which of them has more to show for all the liberal vitriol they endured? It does not even come close.

If conservatives won’t start taking results more seriously, you can bet the rest of the Republican Party soon will. In the 2016 primaries, Chris Christie will say that while his opponents were conducting marathon speaking sessions, he was beating liberals at both the ballot box and the statehouse in a Democratic region.

Even sooner, establishment Republican voices on Capitol Hill will start demanding to know what Cruz has bought the party as they prepare to cut a deal with Democrats.

In order to achieve victory, the late conservative activist Howard Phillips used to say,“first we must seek it.” Even before that, we must define it—and perhaps more ambitiously than we have done in the past.

Unlike you, when I want something, I have to reach into my own pocket.

You still haven't been able to find any proof subsidies to oil companies exist. It's an urban legend. There are no subsidies paid to oil companies.
By the way, the economic collapse was caused by the Democrats' Marxist CRA program that collapsed our economy after two years (fuck you) oversight by Democrats Dodd and Frank, to whom the Wall Street investment companies that caused the economic collapse paid a fortune in bribes to, as well as another fortune in bribes to Obama.
Well, they paid Dodd and Obama. The media covered Barney Frank's ass after he threw his male page off his New York hotel balcony and was busted for running a male prostitution ring out of his house. They didn't have to pay Frank. All they had to do was divert attention away from him to keep him from being executed for killing his male page during one of his homosexual fits.
