The GOP Republicans are wicked, coward and destroyers to the nation. Americans need to wake-up and speak out the truth,the world is changing and people need to change for good. The evil that these republicans sowed are coming back to them, what do they have in the party to replace the Affordable Health Care- so called Obama healthcare?. The whole show is about the fat cat bosses,the scary of new competition arising in the Health industries, Insurances and the Pharmaceutical Industries.

Great example an internet deviant sexual predator. The POTUS has already delayed its implementation for BIG BUSINESS, the unions that gave the dems all their money hate it, businesses institutions that have not gotten a waivers are dropping coverage for their employees and their spouses (U.V. and Walgreens and many others)
A large majority of Americans are opposed to it and those numbers are growing. Like pelosi said you have to pess the bill to see what is in it and the more the people see what is in it the more they are against it.
So perhaps the republicans and a growing number of dems are not being a party of NO but actually doing what they elected to do and that is to follow the will of their constituents.
The house passed a bill to fund the government completely all but unaffordable un-accessible socialist health care act

Divided the GOP into 2 camps.
Those who want to continue in politics (Walker, Jindal,Christie)
And the one who don't (Cruz, et.al.)

President Obama agreed to spend $973 billion more than we have in 2013.
Then he decides he absolutely must spend even more of what we don't have, putting our children, grandchildren and their children even deeper in debt.
Furthermore, he says, if he doesn't get the approval from the representatives of the people, he will shut the Government down. Finally, he blames the Republicans for threatening to shut the Government down; this is a lie.

In actual fact, it's the Damnocrats who are threatening to shut down the Government. The Republican House have presented a proposal to keep the Government running.
Not only have the Damnocrats rejected this proposal out-of-hand, they have offered no alternative.

Big whoop! When was the last time the deficit was under a trillion?
Here's a hint: it was the last year of Bush's presidency.

That's right. You shout hooray because Obama's deficit is more than double any deficit during Bush's tenure, but still lower than any of Obama's previous deficits.

Here's a hammer to hit yourself in the head with. You'll be amazed how good you feel after the hammer gets broken on that thick skull of yours.

And these teabagging cons who pass themselves off as fiscalites, can't stand it. Or admit they ran it all up.

you 2 must work for the government or collect benefits from those that do or the ones lucky enough to still have a job. A deficit of over 778 billion this year alone 17 trillion in all this is nothing to be overjoyed about.
The fact is this economy is holding on by a thread, being propped up by the fed pumping 85 billion a month into the stock market which is benefiting not the poor or middle class or even that evil 1% it is benefiting 1/10 of 1%, supporters of his policies.
Look at the facts Gov Motors owes US 55 billion, billions went to green energy cronies that have now gone under leaving us with the bill, businesses are not hiring and if they do it is part time to avoid fines from obumbblecare.He has given waivers to big business (a violation of the law) the unions want out of it and will get a deal of their own you can be sure, and the only ones left to cover the costs of the bill that has more than tripled will be the middle class.
the ones being hurt the most from his inept policies are the one that he claims to be concerned for (HAHAHA)

So, you're thinking that Obama finally saw the light. He's now intent on reducing the deficit.

I notice that you don't think that the veep is fit for the job. We agree on that point at least.
Do you think Hillary will appoint Mrs. Weiner to her Cabinet?
