Never bet against Black… the 2008 and 2012 Elections should have taught these silly right-wing idiots that much, but their hate, vitriol and pride refuse to allow them to say “Uncle”, so once again Obama will win, as usual as we get to laugh in the faces of the bitter losers who continue to get their teeth kicked in by us.

Please… proceed, LOL!

2010 and 2012 house elections should've taught you that when we say no....we mean no more spending.

Dr. Carson put a scalpel to Obamacare and in less than five minutes destroyed it. He exposed all the stupidity and waste of marxism with such ease any politician for or against socialized medicine wanted to hide under the breakfast table. How did he do this you ask? Simple: He used intelligence, common sense and his experience to show he had a far better plan. The most dangerous thing a politician could face, superior intelligence

Don't mess with black, idiot.

I guess you've never heard of the COPS Hiring Recovery
Program (CHRP). Huh?

Still living inside the Fox News Bullsh*t and Propaganda Bubble are we?

Anyway, CHRP provides hundreds of millions of federal dollars
to help cities and towns hire and train cops and firefighters.
That will come to an end.

The outcome could be many thousands of government
employees losing their jobs. The Military alone
employes 800,000 civilians who work on military
installations in virtually every state in the Union.
Bye, bye to lots of them.

But hey, what's not to like for a Republicans?

One of the major goals of the GOP over the years
is to reduce the size of government. To "starve
the beast." And after all, as Reagan said,
government is the problem and not the solution.
So it needs to be reduced to the size where it
can be "drowned in a bathtub." Grover Norquist.

Why aren't the Republicans just delighted?
Their most cherished dream is about to come
rue. Destruction of government.

A new survey from the Pew Research Center and USA Today — the first wide-ranging poll to look at the issue of the sequester — shows a failure to reach a deal would lead 49 percent of Americans to blame congressional Republicans and 31 percent to blame President Obama.
This isn’t all that surprising. As we noted Wednesday, Obama is much more popular than both Congress and the Republican Party, which means he’s likely to come out on top in the blame game.

All those countries have long waiting lines. The USA has had the top hospitals, doctors and medical schools on the planet..

The slow downward spiral of the American medical systems has begun under nobamacare..

Doctors leving the profession....medical device companies laying off...med students (some of our finest minds are changing majors)

there wouldn't be a sequester in the first place if it wasn't for Obama, and his own negligence, incompetence and his once again, failures of leadership in his not dealing with the debt ceiling when he could have, when the Democrats controlled both houses of congress and they could have done what they wanted with no Republican roadblocks. If he had, all this would have been avoided.

Democratic groups like MoveOn, The DCCC and others keep sending out dishonest emails asking people to sign petitions blaming the Republicans for the sequester that was initiated and crafted by Obama ignoring the fact that Obama was grossly negligent in not dealing with the debt ceiling and the budget in his first term when he had a huge congressional majority, and now they act like he had nothing to do with it.

Don't count on it, toodles.

When you find yourself in a hole
It's best to stop digging...

Over the past several weeks Republicans have increasingly shown their support of the sequester, which is due to take effect in just over two weeks. Instead of working towards a balanced and bipartisan solution to prevent it from happening, Republicans are embracing the cuts, which were designed to be irrational and irresponsible. In fact, this has been their longstanding policy preference. Their own “Cut Cap, and Balance Act”[H.R. 2560] included “enforcement of spending caps through sequestration.”
Here’s the latest Republican endorsements of the sequester:

Not really, I don't vote multiple times like the evil left, wolfshit.

However...with prices skyrocketing on everything from gas to milk, taxes going up, nobamacare costs rising....

The dems will learn to fear the American voter like they did in 2010.

Nonsense!
House vote on sequester:

Republicans....174 yes
Democrats....95 yes

You blame Obama for 174 Republicans voting yes?
