I never denied a GOP controlled House wouldn't have control over spending bills, I just think you are extremely naive if you actually believe the GOP will CUT spending overall. I guess you forgot what happened the last time the GOP had control of Congress; hardly the model of fiscal conservatism. Instead of spending money on healthcare & infrastructure, they'll be spending it on defense & oil & coal instead, or they'll buy the votes of senior citizens with more unfunded Medicare benefits- but I guess THAT kind of healthcare spending is okay huh.

NEITHER party is willing to do what it actually takes to balance the budget- either raise taxes significantly or cut spending significantly on defense, social security, & medicare/medicaid.

Gallup Finds U.S. Unemployment at 10.0% in Mid-October
Unemployment is essentially the same as the 10.1% at the end of September
by Dennis Jacobe, Chief Economist
PRINCETON, NJ -- Unemployment, as measured by Gallup without seasonal adjustment, is at 10.0% in mid-October -- essentially the same as the 10.1% at the end of September but up sharply from 9.4% in mid-September and 9.3% at the end of August. This mid-month measurement confirms the late September surge in joblessness that should be reflected in the government's Nov. 5 unemployment report.
And yet, you could not refute consecutive private sector job growth over the last eight months, could you?

Of course not.

What if a party was being thrown and no one came to it? Don't vote for the 2 parties who have gutted America.

This is what’s gone wrong with the tea party: Rand Paul supporters stomping on a woman’s head for exercising her right to free speech!

Candidates who encourage and incite anger do not deserve your vote.

Stomp on her head? Her head looks fine.
.
Maybe that woman needed to be a little more respectful of others? She was just another left wing loop job trying to be "heroic".

Holding a sign is somehow disrespectful when a liberal does it, but is acceptable when a Fleabaggin Fascist does it?

So in your mind assault of a woman by a man is acceptable in THIS instance??

Leads me to the next question- when is enough enough??

First off, she didn't get a major beat down nor was her head stepped on.
.
Second, considering how lefties get pretty ugly exercising their freedom of speech, one can understand how Paul supporters might get hair triggery. To the unknowing, she could have had very ill intent.
.
I thought I heard of the radio she (the head stomped "victim") has tried similar stunts in the past so she wasn't there to just hold up a sign.
.
Best solution? Protest respectfully.

I know FOX Propaganda won't show the video, every other news organization is showing it, so change channels.

She got stomped in the head AND neck.

Facts are facts, you're not entitled to your own set of facts, sorry.

The instances of fascist right wing attacks this season are legion.

Joe Miller had a reporter handcuffed by security for simply ATTEMPTING to ask a question.

Sharron Mangele in Nevada won't talk to anyone but FOX Propaganda, gets a pass from them, and then has liberals detained with security provided by corporate backers of the Fleaparty Fascists.

The dirty tricks, denying freedom of the press is heavily weighted on the side of the fascist Reich.

I hope everyone in Kentucky sees this piece of trash beating up on a woman, and hopefully it will result in sane people voting for Conway in response to this shameful act.

That's funny. I saw the video several times on FOX. I also heard a commentator condemning the action and calling for Profitt's immediate arrest for assault.

She did not get stomped on the head. She did get stomped on the neck and that neanderthal should have been charged with assault on the spot.

YouTube has the incident from beginning to end. Her head wasn't stomped on. She wasn't stomped on at all.

Obama has been on FOX constantly, trying to kiss bipartisan rump, and stopped going on when Brent Baer, his last interviewer kept interrupting him so much, he couldn't even finish a sentence.

The Baer, on air, apologized to Obama for being the ass he was.

Guess you selectively missed that one.

Yeah, and the neanderthal asked HER for an apology.

Typical Reich wing fascism gone operational in the final days.

He's being arraigned today, thankfully.

Now the left leaning major media should apologize for never asking Obama a serious question in 2008.

The man with the foot did not stomp her.

And if she acted civilly, she wouldn't have those bruised ribs. No one at the time knew if she meant harm. Maybe the left needs to leave behind it's pie throwing habits, eh?
