They lied to you, Skipper. Obama can't spend a dime....so you don't even know how government works, huh?
"Commie Care" tells people to buy commercial health insurance. Want to explain the contradiction there, or are would you prefer to babble?
LOL (shaking head)
I know exactly how government works and much more than you ever will.

The Commies in Congress agreed to put us in this 17 trillion dollar hole by wasting money. We decided enough was enough and put Republicans in to stop this spending. See how it works now?

Commie Care is just yet another step into controlling the people. Of course, dupes like you actually believe that politicians care about your healthcare. LOL!

The end result? About six million people signed up for Commie Care--nearly 75% of those people had coverage before. That means only 25% of those people are actually people who got coverage for the first time. That's a little less than 2 million people out of the estimated 40 million that never had coverage.

For those 2 million people, we turned the entire country upside down. This is the way Socialists solve problems which is why we should always keep them out of power in the future.

In the states where exchanges were created and Medicaid was expanded the rates of uninsured citizens was reduced. These were people that were not previously covered. Look it up.

No matter how you spin it the end result is the same.
Taxpayers take on more burden so non-taxpayers have less.

The only thing you create is more non-taxpayers.

Obviously the process isn't going fast enough for this administration so they're importing more non-taxpayers.

Some years ago we still had a chance. We live off of the federal reserve now. We live off of their kindness. All of those decades of the news media telling us wherever we lived, "Don't fight the fed". All of the reporters with their droll look while they spouted it. Well now the foundation of the men who built America is flat lined. Spouted as evil by the elitists who have convinced people to that they have been chained into slavery while they can not figure out they are superior to others with every program known to mankind available to help them. That is America in the evolved peaceful human 21st century.

I would welcome substantive characterization in lieu of your meaningless rhetoric to mischaracterize me. Thus it seems to be about your agenda rather than my attributes.
By the way, if you'll review my post, you'll note that I did not make any assertions about "individuals who are members of the Tea Party" since I spoke only collectively of tea partiers in the House who aren't doing their jobs, and since I'm not aware that there is a Tea Party that has any members. It would be my preference that tea partiers stop occupying the Republican Party by actually organizing a legitimate Tea Party.
You really didn't need to demonstrate your hypocrisy again, since it was already there for all to see. But you just could not resist. Funny you see those in the House who do not agree with your views and wants as obstructionists but appear to absolve the Democrats in the Senate who agree with your positions but are just as obstructionist.

Actually you do not want a substantive characterization,.... you are steeped in your ideology and indoctrination and cannot see past the blinders that you wear.

Here the REAL FACt that Congressman Marino pointed out. Between 2008 and 2010 The Democrats had a supermajority and could have passed any immigration act they wanted but did not do a thing.
And as far as the Dream act goes look at our borders now. We have over 50,000 children now ,let them in and stay and we will have 500,000 next year and a Million the year after that.. So should we just get rid of all immigration laws and let every in ?

Want to know what hapens when Democrat are in complete control. Just look at my once proud state of California.. a huge debt, everything falling apart, one corruption scandal after another and we now have the highest poverty rate in the Nation.
The low point came last year when so many State Senators where in jail there was worry that the budget could not be passed.

Actually, you stupid hump: they've tried 52 times and they have known 51 times that they could be sure it wasn't going to pass.

Like you when you failed your roadside sobriety test and lost your driver's license.

Instead of working on say 51 other bills they could have passed... or even ONE immigration bill, the GOP House has pretty much wasted two years at $174K salary per member.

How many lies can you fit in one sentence?

Democrats are not in complete control, California is no less proud today than yesterday or a year or ten years ago, it's in debt but not as large as it was under the GOP gov, and it has a budget surplus rather than GOP deficit.

And there are **********FIFTEEN********** states with higher poverty rates.

What a *king liar you are.

Your ignorance is bliss.

Democrats did not have a super majority from 2008-2010.

The Truth is that the Democrats only had a filibuster-proof majority for 24 working days during that period. Here are the details:

To define terms, a Filibuster-Proof Majority or Super Majority is the number of votes required to overcome a filibuster in the Senate. According to current Senate rules, 60 votes are required to overcome a filibuster.

Here is a time-line of the events after the 2008 election:

1. BALANCE BEFORE THE ELECTION. In 2007 – 2008 the balance in the Senate was 51-49 in favor of the Democrats. On top of that, there was a Republican president who would likely veto any legislation the Republicans didn’t like. Not exactly a super majority.

2. BIG GAIN IN 2008, BUT STILL NO SUPER MAJORITY. Coming out the 2008 election, the Democrats made big gains, but they didn’t immediately get a Super Majority. The Minnesota Senate race required a recount and was not undecided for more than six months. During that time, Norm Coleman was still sitting in the Senate and the Balance 59-41, still not a Super Majority.

3. KENNEDY GRAVELY ILL. Teddy Kennedy casts his last vote in April and leaves Washington for good around the first of May. Technically he could come back to Washington vote on a pressing issue, but in actual fact, he never returns, even to vote on the Sotomayor confirmation. That leaves the balance in the Senate 58-41, two votes away from a super majority.

4. STILL NO SUPER MAJORITY. In July, Al Frankin was finally declared the winner and was sworn in on July 7th, 2009, so the Democrats finally had a Super Majority of 60-40 six and one-half months into the year. However, by this point, Kennedy was unable to return to Washington even to participate in the Health Care debate, so it was only a technical super majority because Kennedy could no longer vote and the Senate does not allow proxies. Now the actual actual balance of voting members is 59-40 not enough to overcome a Republican filibuster.

5. SENATE IS IN RECESS. Even if Kennedy were able to vote, the Senate went into summer recess three weeks later, from August 7th to September 8th.

6. KENNEDY DIES. Six weeks later, on Aug 26, 2009 Teddy Kennedy died, putting the balance at 59-40. Now the Democrats don’t even have technical super majority.

7. FINALLY, A SUPER MAJORITY! Kennedy’s replacement was sworn in on September 25, 2009, finally making the majority 60-40, just enough for a super majority.

8. SENATE ADJOURNS. However the Senate adjourned for the year on October 9th, only providing 11 working days of super majority, from September 25th to October 9th.

8. SCOTT BROWN ELECTED. Scott Brown was elected in November of 2009. The Senate was not in session during November and December of 2009. The Senate was in session for 10 days in January, but Scott Brown was sworn into office on February 4th, so the Democrats only had 13 days of super majority in 2010.

Summary: The Democrats only had 24 days of Super Majority between 2008 and 2010.

californio knows nothing about the State that he lives in.

California is not broke, we currently have a budget surplus.

He won't know about that fact because Fox News won't report that to him.

Dimwit you cant prove those numbers wrong is the problem because you know yourself just like everyone else knows it is true and all you got to do is take a trip to Detroit, MI and Cleveland, OH where 40 years ago Cleveland and Detroit were both booming economically and no one was on or dependent on welfare like they are now which is unreal and those people on welfare are not considered unemployed either just like the long term unemployed no longer drawing unemployment benefits are considered unemployed and if the Federal Government went back to the way unemployment was calculated before the clinton adminstration changed the formula in 1994, unemployment would be 44%.
