Topix repubs make up their own reality. But you're right. They keep asking for Dems to come in and lead them.

Maybe Pelosi can give Boehner a few pointers. He'll soon need them.

Nothing does less good than tax cuts for the rich. There is
no trickle down and the money ends up in China or some
secret tax haven in the Caribbean (like Romney). No help
what-so-ever to the American economy.
It's funny how the GOP TEA Party RINOs keep spewing that lie thinking we will believe it. Their trickle-down experiment failed. The wealth remain trapped at the top.

Demand creates jobs. NOT tax cuts for the wealthy. And demand comes from the majority 99 percent working middle class. The more money we get to them to spend, the more demand is created. The more demand the more Company's need to hire to meet that demand. The GOP TEA Party RINOs are apparently clueless when it comes not only to governing but also to economics.

If I had 1,000 to take to give to someone. Do I take it from the middle class to give to the rich or vice versa? The middle class will buy 100 $10 workboots with that money. The rich will buy 1 $1,000 loafer. Which creates more demand and will create more jobs? The working middle class of course. The GOP TEA Party RINOs don't see that.

Man I love hearing Christie and Peter King slam his House Speaker.

Head back in the sand repugs, you must ignore or your heads will explode. You can't handle opposing thoughts on the party line.

That was 7 times, with no cuts after being agreed to by Pelosi, Frank and Dodd. You left things out again as usual.

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can't pay its own bills," Obama said before a March 16, 2006, vote on raising the debt limit. The Senate narrowly approved raising the limit along partisan lines, 52-48, with all Democrats opposed.

In an April 15, 2011, interview, Obama said he regrets his position in 2006.

"I think that it's important to understand the vantage point of a senator versus the vantage point of a president," Obama said. "When you're a senator, traditionally what's happened is, this is always a lousy vote. Nobody likes to be tagged as having increased the debt limit -- for the United States by a trillion dollars. As president, you start realizing, you know what, we, we can't play around with this stuff. This is the full faith and credit of the United States. And so that was just an example of a new senator making what is a political vote as opposed to doing what was important for the country. And I'm the first one to acknowledge it.

Funny when you post, it's a republican presidents fault, then the democrat president is innocent and it's the houses fault.

7 times in 8 years under Bush and now in 4 years....4 times under nobama. You're attempt to point out one particular party keeps your propaganda attempts laughable.

Ryan votes yes with Boehner and almost every Repub Senator.

Cantor votes NAY....sgainst Boehner

But then Cantor supports backs Peter King, Christie and others...against Boehner for not allowing Sandy Relief funding Bill.

Strange, but Cantor just seems to be playing his cards against Boehner.

..but I ramble.

Point is the GOP House is a hot mess right now with players slamming each other.

And the best the rightwingnuts on Topix can do is blame Pres Obama and Dems for GOP not being able to get their crap, in the House, together.
