Good Luck. Did you see what Obama appointed to head the EPA. No pipeline/regulated Fracking and Coal to death. That the stated goal of the obama people.

Blame yourselves for not working harder to get pro business, pro energy security Mitt Romney elected. It was a fatal mistake.

If these pantywaist Representatives who call themselves conservatives don't halt funding for Øbama-scare, everyone of them up for re-election should be--and may well be--primaried in 2014. Like the saying goes: if you fund it, you're for it.

Mittwit romney was a cowardly draft dodger who thought it was more important to serve his cult than his country. He makes his living shipping living wage jobs overseas. America does not need right wing vermin like romney!

No fear here, entitlementboy. Hate? Yessireebobcattails! Any law passed in the dead of night on a straight partyline vote, that not one person voting in favor had read, that's nearly 3,000 pages, requiring (to date) about 23,000 pages of regulations, that the Supreme Court had to re-write to bring it to a quasi-Constitutional standard, that Øbama cannot implement timely, has to grant waivers, special protections from it and waivers to 'special' people and groups, that already costs more than double its estimate, that has caused and will continue to cause the country's labor force to be predominately part-time, that has and will continue to drive up individual and group insurance premiums, that will necessarily cause a shortage of health care providers, that still will not cover 30,000,000 people, that robbed $700 billion from medicare, that not a soul on the planet understands, that nearly 70% of Americans want repealed, ad nauseum, ad infinitum, IS WORTHY OF HATE.

What? Do you think the republicans who controlled the Congress (that's both the House and Senate to you republicans) from 1994 - 2006 , and the Presidency from 2000 - 2008, and performed more filibusters to STOP legislation from 2007 to now really did not Appoint any corporate leaders to cabinet posts? OMG....as department heads?

YOu guys REALLY need to understand your party before showing your ignorance of the history of the republican fascist movement.

would love to know how making insurance available to people who don't have it...while allowing others to keep the insurance they have...and which was invented by the RIGHT...is somehow an 'entitlement.'

lol

shows you what kneejerk, programmed non-thinking types righties are...:)

You think Obama would sign a bill to repeal his own healthcare program? You really are "far away" - very "far away" indeed.

I said nothing about repeal; I spoke of funding and, yes, he'd sign it, or the government would shut down for as long as he refused. He couldn't stand that because he LOVES government and he'd cave. The House should send a bill that funds all of government except Øbama-scare and tell Harry Reid that's all you're getting--no negotiation, no compromise on Øbama-scare--and dare him not to bring it to the floor of the Senate. Let Reid shut down government.

Nobody trusts the same old incompetent leadership of the RINOs of the GOP. Why does the GOP leadership support the spying on each and every American and collecting his e-mails during 3 or more years of the Obama dictatorial regime of lies? It is time for the failed GOP leadership and establishment that act like spineless losers that is ‘going along’ the Obama anti-American, lawless, constitution trashing and Mozlem Brother Sympathizer agenda to retire. All these same old for lifetime politicians including the ‘same as liberal RINO including McConnell, McCain, Graham, Boehner that fight for their seat for lifetime while sacrificing the American constitution that is trashed on a daily basis by Obama &co. need to give way to the patriotic American conservative leaders including Ted Cruz and Rand Paul and let them save America before it is too late.

I made no comment disputing the Fact that Americans surrendered to obama's vision for a dramatically devalued future last November. Neither, did I claim that millions of Whites didn't vote to diminish their childrens chances in support of Obama. Majority rules in America. The majority Voted for America to be "less than".
