Right and those two Bush wars, medicare part d plan and the expensive tax cuts in 2001 and 2003 had no effect on the Nation's Debt. Maybe there was no cost to the additional million federal workers hired under Bush. Boy you people are pathetic. Your lies and excuses are comical

An example of Republican Fiscal responsibility was on full display over the last two weeks. The nitwits shut down they were celebrating oct 1 cost American Tax payers,$24 Billion or the cost of 6 Air Craft Carriers for the Navy.

Unaffordablecare, train wreck that it is, is not about healthcare for the people but to control the people. Rules for Radicals, written by Saul Alinsky, who obama is a disciple of, states that the first action to break down the population is to take over health care. By controlling healthcare people are also controlled. It is therefore evident that obama and his handlers would let the country burn down rather than allow any changes to defund or delay unaffordablecare, because it is so instrumental to obama's secret agenda to destroy America. What does the rancid leftist circle jerk say about this?
You are 100% correct. Obamas intention has always been to collapse the economy and force us to be dependent on the government. However the real Americans will never allow this.

The computer glitches,the incompetence of obamas government and the apathy of the young generation will combine to do what Ted Cruz and the Tea Party could not do-bring down obamacare.

For the rancid leftist circle jerk in progress, the gov shut down did not succeed because the patriotic GOP backed off when it came to the stunning realization that the treasonous marxist socialist demorats WOULD INDEED LET THE COUNTRY BURN DOWN before they would allow unaffordablecare, train wreck failure that it is, to be defunded or even delayed.

Actually the GOP wants to control the spending. The Dems, all of them, wants to increase the limit to spend more.

Progressives are lenient with RINOS even Repub moderates to a degree until an election pits them against their own. They fear conservatives. Scared to death of them. Republicans even get manipulated to not vote for conservatives. Palin does not even have an elected position and she gets skewered. Local elections it is harder for them to interfere, although they do. National elections they get their way most of the time as RINOS/NEO CONS are the standard bearers in the general election. They are deathly scared of conservatives. and they will destroy Cruz if he is seen as a potential presidential candidate. And if it seems like so, but no official, the 99% progressive media will start mocking him in other ways besides the so called news entertainment networks.
