There's nothing moral about working hard against something that helps the needy and the poor. The GOP TEA RINOs need to pull their heads out of their own a$$es. Whatever happened to the compassionate Christians?

They acknowledge it by their breach? What they tried to do to Obamacare was a blatant disregard for the Constitution and the rule of law. If they think it is so bad, thet pass a motion to repeal it. THAT is how the Constitution works.

That was not a Question.
Under a rock? No. I seen the Dems not willing to fix the out of control spending by the Gov that will be a big problem soon. The money is running out.
What would be your solution to this?
We should all be glad that the TEA party is trying to help.

What exactly did the teabags achieve over this last shutdown - except a few silly photo ops at memorials, their repub friends calling them "frauds" and "wacko birds" and hurting our folks and our country and what was it this shutdown cost to our country - 24 billion?

If that is helping, well the Tooth Fairy is real.

This out of control spending mantra is 7 years too late. Where were you guys when George Bush was spending money we didn't have on 2 wars, one created in the dark depths of his mind, costing America $3 Trillion, then the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan, which also was not a cheap engagement.

How about a cry from the back of the room when Bush signed the two rounds of Tax Cuts, one in 2001 and 2003, or the expansion of the Federal Workforce with Federalizing the TSA and the creating of the Dept of Homeland Security?

If you could not identify out of control spending when it was ongoing under Bush, how is it we are to assume you can identify a shrinking budget deficit since Bush has been gone as out of control spending today?

When all that was going down, all we could hear were t-crickets from the phoney fiscalites. Funny how these teahadists pass themselves off as being able to handle money. LMAO.

Republicans as fiscal conservatives have been the myth in American politics for 40 years, finally after telling everyone how fiscally conservatives they are they failed the final test.

The Recent $24 Billion blown by the Tea Bags over their shut down that they were celebrating Oct 2, has clearly identified the Republicans as the squanders of Tax payers funds.

$24 Billion could have purchased 6 New Air Craft Carriers, and put to work no less than 50K Americans to built those ships for the US Navy.

There needs not be another example...... I'm a believer as are 75% of America that the Republicans are indeed bad for business and always have. There is a long line of economic wreckage in the wayward path of Republican politics.

Wonder if the Koch Bruvvers will put up millions of dollars to run Lee and Cruz in the next presidential election?
That is going to be more entertaining than some silly politician wasting everybody's time by reading Green Eggs and Ham and shutting down the government
I thought Cruz's "Green Eggs and Ham" bit was especially stupid.
Being that it is one of the very few books I have actually read, I know the story.
It is the story of a man who refuses to try something new because his perception is that it is awful. But after he finally tries it, he finds it is not awful, and it is actually wonderful.
The correlation to the GOP's attitude to the ACA is amazingly similar.
So when Cruz finally has to just try the ACA is he going to love it?
I believe he will.
