I only voted for Obama for CHANGE !

1. He failed to end the phony wars.

2. He failed to close Gitmo.

3. He works for Wallstreet.

We got shafted again.

Good thing we had 5 days to review it before it was signed, huh?

Boehner is proposing new rules for the House mandating time from release of a bill to a vote.

He's also going to allow more reporters into the chamber since current rules are prohibitive and only allow specific media brands. This is one reason why we had such a bias in the coverage.

His first few votes will also be to Cut his or House Budgets.

Good Change in coming when the new house is Sworn In.

We warned you he was full of crap.

But take solace in the fact the McCain would have done no different. Instead of ObamaCare, he would have pushed for the legalization of 20 million illegals.

I wish the Obama had gone to the mattresses against the republicans over extending the Bush Tax Cuts; but I am happy with the fact that he got passed 85% of what he said he would do during his campaign to become President.



Furthermore, he will have time during his second term when the Democrats take back the House as he is re-elected to implement the 15% that he was unable to get through during the last 2 years.

God bless President Obama and the United States of America.

1. Obama Even Expanded the War into Pakistan and Extended it until beyond 2014 with no end in sight.

2. Not only did he fail at gitmo but his NYC trial backfired on us all as the terrorist was able to beat 275 of Obama's charges in a federal court because the judge refused to admit critical evidence. This wouldn't have happened in a Military trial.

3. Obama has been owned by Wall Street for many years, well before he won the election. He knew about the Bonuses we were paying for too. To add further insult, he hired many wall street insiders into his administration.

This doesn't even mention the Fannie Mae Lobbyist, Donilon, Obama hired as National Security chief.

Does anyone know of a link or website that discloses the amendments that are "tacked" on to a bill and who did it? Possibly before it is signed and becomes law. I know of LegiStorm.com , but they only do earmarks. The government has websites to identify sponsors and co-sponsors but nothing about who "tacked" what on to a bill. The amendments crap is what is pissing most people off, as it should. Oh well, thanks in advance. Merry Christmas.

I saw Jamie Dupree from the AJC has a serious political column where he's done the leg work by listing the amendments and earmarks by originator. I saw he tweets some of it too so that will be refreshed and written over if you view it late...I don't have the link but sure you can google him for the Atlanta newspaper site.

This just goes to show that no matter what party you vote for the average working person will still get shafted. The Democratic party has been ruined by clinton's dlc and the blue dogs. I voted for a liberal and got a wall street minion! Unfortunately there is no longer a party that looks after the interests of working Americans. Obama has been a big dissappointment!
