<quoted text>Hey, PPP, I agree with you. The socialist Dems should go all out and impose their ideas on America, as extremely as they can and as much as they can, before November....the more they do, the easier it is to educate the public about what happens when you elect Democrats.:)
The gun grabbing liberal/progressives will continue to destroy the USA at a faster pace, they are in panic mode. I only hope we can gain control of the Senate before Obama has a chance of nominating another anti Constitution radical to the US Supreme Court.

Who would listen to such liars and crooks as those questioning Goldman Sachs?! I mean, what is this, a distraction from their own bastardization of their oaths of office, to uphold the constitution of the United States, and not HOLD UP and FORCE their agendas down the throats of the PEOPLE!!!
Who's interest do they really have in mind. Answ: Their own!
The Republicans did not listen to the wishes of the American people over 5 years ago and they lost greatly from it.They tried once again to vote on party lines against Financial Reform but they now hear our anger at last.The Republicans need to get to work for the good of the United States or they will suffer.Many Republicans are angry at their our party includeing me.We will vote against our own party when needed.

It was naivete at its highest to believe that the repubes would work together with the dems.

Many have said the would not cooperate, many have intimated that fact and watching the Baltimore Q&A and the health summit and other hearings the Party of Hell No has proved it.

Let the Party of Step by Stepping and Starting Over continue to huff and puff on the sidelines.
