New Zogby Poll: Obama Recovers, Congress Suffers from Shutdown

While a 45% job approval rating is hardly anything to brag about, especially in the context of a government shutdown and a looming crisis just days away regarding failure to extend the national debt limit, the new Zogby Poll shows the degree to which the government crisis is hurting Congress even more than the President – especially the public’s perception of the Republican Party. According to the new poll, Congress overall receives only a 13% job approval rating, compared with a 85% disapproval rating. The 13% figure matches the 13% approval rating of the Republicans in Congress, while the Democrats in Congress receive a 24% approval rating and 73% disapproval.

Blue State, Red Face: Guess Who Benefits More From Your Taxes?

""The results will stun many people, though not me: I’ve been telling my Tea Party relatives this for years. Here’s a list of the top 10 states that got the most back in terms of federal benefits, followed by the bottom 10. I’ve added the reasons why, when they’re obvious, in the space to the right.

To save space below,“pension benefits” include both Medicare and Social Security; “anti-poverty aid” includes Head Start, Low Income Home Energy Assistance, Food Stamp and nutrition programs for Women, Infants and Children (WIC), and several school-lunch-style benefits.

Top Ten (Source: Tax Foundation):

1. New Mexico Indian reservations, military bases, federal research labs, farm subsidies, retirement programs

2. Mississippi Farm subsidies, military spending, nutrition and anti-poverty aid, retirement programs.

3. Alaska Per capita No 1 recipient of federal benefits; infrastructure projects, DOT and pork projects.

4. Louisiana Disaster relief, farm subsidies, anti-poverty and nutrition aid, military spending.

5. W. Virginia Farm subsidies, anti-poverty and nutrition aid.

6. N. Dakota Farm subsidies, energy subsidies, retirement and anti-poverty programs, Indian reservations.

7. Alabama Retirement programs, anti-poverty and nutrition aid, federal space/military spending, farm subsidies.

8. S. Dakota Retirement programs, nutrition aid, farm subsidies, military spending, Indian reservations.

9. Virginia Civil service pensions, military spending, veterans benefits, retirement, anti-poverty aid.

10. Kentucky Retirement programs, nutritional and anti-poverty aid, farm subsidies.

..........

Now consider the bottom 10, i.e., the ones that give more to the federal government in taxes than they get in return. From 1 to 10, they are:

New Jersey, Nevada, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Minnesota, Illinois, Delaware, California, New York, Colorado.

Anything strange about that list? Yes, they are all blue states (or the deepest of purple).

You nitwits are so screwed. You bitch about taxes, yet it's the reddest states (like Flake's WVA and VA) that get far more than they pay in.

If they didn't, WVA and th erest would empty out in a month.

Most voters still don’t like the new national health care law but also say it has had no impact on them so far.
Forty-seven percent (47%) of Likely U.S. Voters share at least a somewhat favorable opinion of the law, while 52% view it at least somewhat unfavorably, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Overall favorables for the law are the highest of the year.

What’s Wrong with Movement Conservatism

Erick Erickson exemplifies the self-deluding movement conservative with this response to the failure of his preferred strategy:

Isn’t it interesting that when Ted Cruz and Jim DeMint were touring America to fight against Obamacare, the popularity of the GOP was going up and the popularity of Obamacare was going down.[sic]

But now that John Boehner and the Orange Man Group of Capitol Hill are the faces of the GOP, Obamacare’s popularity is going back up and the GOP’s popularity is going back down.

That might be interesting if it were true, but no reasonable interpretation of the evidence supports it. When Cruz and others were “touring,” not many people were paying attention to them. Thanks to the shutdown strategy that Erickson wanted and wants to continue, the public paid closer attention to what the defunders were doing in Washington. Unsurprisingly, most recoiled from it, blamed Republicans more for the shutdown, and approved of the party less. Party leaders did exactly what Erickson wanted, and it blew up in their faces. Even though they were merely going along with the bad idea he helped promote, Erickson wants to blame them for everything that has gone wrong. This is the domestic political equivalent of when Iraq war boosters tried to blame Rumsfeld for screwing up their otherwise “brilliant” plan. It’s always someone else’s fault.

Obviously, his purpose is to deflect blame for the political damage that Erickson and his allies inflicted on the GOP and on the opposition to the health care law, but the only people that would believe such a transparent deception are those that still imagine that Republicans are winning the standoff, and they are becoming fewer by the day. As if that weren’t enough, Erickson ties this to a blatant fundraising pitch for the organizations most responsible for foisting this failure on the GOP and for primary challengers against Republican leaders that went along with the doomed strategy for far longer than anyone would have thought possible. It is most of what is wrong with movement conservatism summed up in one short post: lie to your audience, evade responsibility for failure, and then urge people to throw their money away to fund more of the same “activism” that helped create the current mess.

So are you saying it's okay if Democrats don't have moral character as long as they respect women's rights to legally kill their unborn?
I've gotta go do some chores. Thank goodness.
It isn't just about Republicans refusing to allow a woman to have control over her own body in making decisions about abortion. It is about Republican's desire to control a women's body by blocking access to birth control and voting against a woman's right to sue for punitive damages in cases of paycheck discrimination.

You fail to understand that you defeat yourself when you and your party try to force others to live according to your moral point of view. Republicans just can't accept free will.

As usual, you need to work on your definition of terms. SSI is not considered welfare in the rating you use, and it was centered on the amount of extended benefits being paid to the unemployed after Bush's Depression. People like Batty Loo, who've only worked part-time at best, withdrew personal pension funds and spent them (if she is to be believed) is now "retiring" at sixty-two to live the rest of her useless existence on funds she hasn't put in. That's those T-P "Morans" in a nutshell: out there with their misspelled signs demanding that Obammy keep government out of their Medicare. lol

States receiving the most federal funding per tax dollar paid:

1. New Mexico:$2.63
2. West Virginia:$2.57
3. Mississippi:$2.47
4. District of Colombia:$2.41
5. Hawaii:$2.38
6. Alabama:$2.03
7. Alaska:$1.93

Their sex lives or preferences have nothing to do with womens rights. How do you know Monica didn't like cigar sex? Whose business is it anyway? You'd be surprised how many men take pictures of their penises and send them to people. Did you read about that new cop in SC who sent pictures of his penis to a 13 year old in Iowa? It's not about killing the unborn; it's about the right of women over their own bodies.
I believe in sexual freedom; what people do is their own business.
I agree that Anthony Weiner, John Edwards and Bill Clinton are scoundrels. I'm so grateful that President Obama didn't pick John Edwards for VP! Who did they hurt Carol? They hurt their wives and children and their reputations. Men are weird, especially powerful ones.
However, none of the above ever proposed forcing women to have vaginal probes; forcing women to have rapists babies; giving visitation rights to rapists; charging women who had an abortion with a felony tampering with evidence if she aborted the rapists baby; force women to submit to testing of a miscarriage to prove it wasn't self induced.
You evangelical republicans are like the Taliban; you views are more akin to Sharia law than anyone elses. Funny you can't see that.

This "red state welfare" hypothesis falls completely apart when we look at the data.

The purportedly bottom 10 "blue states" not on welfare are New Jersey, Nevada, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Minnesota, Illinois, Delaware, California, New York, and Colorado.
To show how mindless this liberal proposition is, the "red state welfare" argument appears to be entirely based only on how each state voted in the most recent presidential election. This results in entirely junk science.

Your source agrees that the top ten moocher states are the same!!LOL

The only distinction the American Stinker makes is in the political realm. They claim the politics are more 'complicated'. But they don't question the numbers.

They did not dispute the economic numbers at all, which are Gov't numbers.
