What was blocked was multiple bills designed to payoff and kickback billions to Obama's friends and supporters, just like the stimulus, which actually made our economy worse, because the democrats don't write jobs bills, they write bills designed to make themselves and their special interest groups rich at our children's expense.

And now we see 2 failed politicians Obama and Cuomo picking at an emotional issue and instead of addressing things like violent movies, TV and video games, as well as mental illness, they are attacking the 2nd amendment.

Obama who is a total failure as president, having presided over the worst recovery in history, despite spending trillions, and mortgaging our future,

and Cuomo, the architect of the sub-prime disaster, having pushed high risk loans to further his political career with a resulting disaster, and who totally screwed up the hurricane sandy aftermath, because frankly he is incompetent.

These politicians will grab at any issue to further their political careers rather then leading they pander.

and we will all pay the price down the line, just as we paid the price for Cuomo's sub-prime disaster years after his pushing the program.

Obviously your definition of partisan bull is anything that makes Obama and the democrats look bad.

If you think it is untrue, then prove it wrong,

but frankly the facts are the facts, and Obama and Cuomo has done serious damage to this country, and our future.

Naaaah,That is the nonsense and gibberish espoused by the Knownothing Teaparty and misinformed and lying republicans;
I will tutor you,so you can become wellinformed;'
Republicans howled on Thursday when the Federal Reserve, at long last, took steps to energize the economy. Some were furious at the thought that even a little economic boost might work to benefit President Obama just before an election.“It is going to sow some growth in the economy,” said Raul Labrador, a freshman Tea Party congressman from Idaho,“and the Obama administration is going to claim credit.”
Mr. Labrador needn’t worry about that. The president is no more likely to get credit for the Fed’s action — for which he was not responsible — than he gets for the transformative law for which he was fully responsible: the 2009 stimulus, which fundamentally turned around the nation’s economy and its prospects for growth, and yet has disappeared from the political conversation.
The reputation of the stimulus is meticulously restored from shabby to skillful in Michael Grunwald’s important new book,“The New New Deal.” His findings will come as a jolt to those who think the law “failed,” the typical Republican assessment, or was too small and sloppy to have any effect.
On the most basic level, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is responsible for saving and creating 2.5 million jobs. The majority of economists agree that it helped the economy grow by as much as 3.8 percent, and kept the unemployment rate from reaching 12 percent.

The stimulus is the reason, in fact, that most Americans are better off than they were four years ago, when the economy was in serious danger of shutting down.
But the stimulus did far more than stimulate: it protected the most vulnerable from the recession’s heavy winds. Of the act’s $840 billion final cost,$1.5 billion went to rent subsidies and emergency housing that kept 1.2 million people under roofs.(That’s why the recession didn’t produce rampant homelessness.) It increased spending on food stamps, unemployment benefits and Medicaid, keeping at least seven million Americans from falling below the poverty line.
And as Mr. Grunwald shows, it made crucial investments in neglected economic sectors that are likely to pay off for decades. It jump-started the switch to electronic medical records, which will largely end the use of paper records by 2015. It poured more than $1 billion into comparative-effectiveness research on pharmaceuticals. It extended broadband Internet to thousands of rural communities. And it spent $90 billion on a huge variety of wind, solar and other clean energy projects that revived the industry. Republicans, of course, only want to talk about Solyndra, but most of the green investments have been quite successful, and renewable power output has doubled.
Americans don’t know most of this, and not just because Mitt Romney and his party denigrate the law as a boondoggle every five minutes. Democrats, so battered by the transformation of “stimulus” into a synonym for waste and fraud (of which there was little), have stopped using the word. Only four speakers at the Democratic convention even mentioned the recovery act, none using the word stimulus.
Mr. Obama himself didn’t bring it up at all. One of the biggest accomplishments of his first term — a clear illustration of the beneficial use of government power, in a law 50 percent larger (in constant dollars) than the original New Deal — and its author doesn’t even mention it in his most widely heard re-election speech. Such is the power of Republican misinformation, and Democratic timidity.
Mr. Grunwald argues that the recovery act was not timid, but the administration’s effort to sell it to the voters was muddled and ineffective. Not only did White House economists famously overestimate its impact on the jobless rate, handing Mr. Romney a favorite talking point, but the administration seemed to feel the benefits would simply be obvious. Mr. Obama, too cool to appear in an endless stream of photos with a shovel and hard hat, didn’t slap his name on public works projects in the self-promoting way of mayors and governors.
How many New Yorkers know that the stimulus is helping to pay for the Second Avenue subway, or the project to link the Long Island Rail Road to Grand Central? Almost every American worker received a tax cut from the act, but only about 10 percent of them noticed it in their paychecks. White House economists had rejected the idea of distributing the tax cuts as flashy rebate checks, because people were more likely to spend the money (and help the economy) if they didn’t notice it. Good economics, perhaps, but terrible politics.
From the beginning, for purely political reasons, Republicans were determined to oppose the bill, using silly but tiny expenditures to discredit the whole thing. Even the moderate Republican senators who helped push the bill past a filibuster had refused to let it grow past $800 billion, and prevented it from paying for school construction.
Republicans learned a lesson from the stimulus that Democrats didn’t expect: unwavering opposition, distortion, deceit and ridicule actually work, especially when the opposition doesn’t put up a fight. The lesson for Democrats seems equally clear: when government actually works, let the world know about it.

"The report was written by the White House’s Council of Economic Advisors, a group of three economists who were all handpicked by Obama"

"by borrowing an amount greater than the regular defense budget or the annual cost of Medicare, and then spending it mostly on Democratic constituencies rather than in a manner genuinely designed to stimulate the economy, Obama’s “stimulus” has actually undermined the economy’s recovery — while leaving us (thus far)$666 billion deeper in debt. "

"All sides agree on these incriminating numbers — and now they also appear to agree on this important point: The economy would now be generating job growth at a faster rate if the Democrats hadn’t passed the “stimulus.”"

"Harvard University economist Jeffrey Miron argued that the $800 billion stimulus package wasn’t even designed to stimulate the economy, but rather to benefit special-interest groups, "

"“over the objection of his economic advisors, President Obama replaced $60 billion of ‘highly stimulative spending’ with a slow-spending but ‘inspiring’$20 billion for high-speed trains and $40 billion in pork for his Senate Democratic allies. And this is starting from a point at which he knew that his advisors thought that not more than $225 billion of the $826 billion total was high-quality, fast-spending, efficient stimulus.”"

"This is not the only way that Obama ignored economics in favor of politics when drawing up the stimulus. "

You must be thinking of the anti-Giuliani demonstrations, when they actually DID carry signs with Giuliani ( aka Adolph Bulliani) pictures with a Hitler mustache.

"Uneducated illiterates"?? Those are all on welfare and supporting Bozo.

And we know perfectly well that you plant provocateurs in demonstrations. An old Marxist trick.

The TEA Party is tax-paying, employed, and family oriented. And we DO cling to the First and Second Amendments. Got a problem with that?

Yes, there are indeed those who, because of their impeccable academic qualifications and knowledge and their devotion to the Truth and Facts over partisan ideology and political claptrap, do not accept the mendacious spew from the progressive left and partisan political tools.

This clearly does not include you.

Keep chanting your partisan and thoroughly debunked lies if they make you feel better.

I am not here to placate extremists or illiterates.

I am somewhat surorised that someone with your intellect conveniently neglected to mention the fact that;
Obama inherited the worst economic conditions since the Great Depression,caused by none others than the REPUBLICAN TEA PARTY ,for
which they had no solution,then,or now.
The fact that,Obama has been able to resolve the catastrophic mess they created is more than they can bare.
They have done everything in their power to hinder him at every turn by lying,misstating facts,innuendo,rumor mongering and trying to suppress the vote.
Tactics worthy of the most corrupt and dishonest scoundrels in the history of world politics,
But,Incompetence WILL NOT prevail......

If those who caused the problem had the ability to resolve it,they would have never got us into that problem in the first place
.AND SO>>>>>
OBAMA RULES for 4 MORE YEARS.
