It looks like the democrats are going to steal the name Party of No. It also looks like the new House is doing what they were sent there to do. However, they have barely gotten their feet wet in the ocean of debt that we owe. Liberals were and are still screaming to give Obama time. He has had 2 years. It is only fair to give the Republicans time also.

I hope the liberals continue to fight these cuts. It will make it that much easier to crush them in 2012

it seems the dems are giving the gop as much time as the gop gave obama. if you are a supporter of these tea party darling conservatives(and it seems you are) why aren't you more upset about them back tracking on their promises? oh that's right you don't want to admit they played you for a sucker.

backtracking on things like boehner's promise to cut 100 billion from spending. they cut is down to 61 and they haven't even started the trade offs and deals that will be needed to finish the spending bills. or maybe how every gop candidate went begging to the tea party rallies promising they would not only refrain from earmarking ,they would not vote for any bill with them. wanna bet how long that lasts? maybe you forgot the speakers promise that every bill voted in the house would have FULL debate and time for each member to study but has already allowed several minor bills to slip through that net. if you won't stand up on the easy ones do you really expect him to stick to his guns on the tough ones?
