    All you have to do is pay slight attention and it is clear that the Republican party....the party of big brother government..... has little to no interest in the vast majority of the citizens of this country...yet will invest tremendous amounts of energy to protect the 1% of the population that they care about.
    You mean BOTH parties that gave us the Patriot Act don't you. I seem to remember it was approved by overwhelming majorities of both parties.

    Of course you knew that but couldn't resist a lame attempt at over-the-top partisanship............ as usual.

    Of course opposition to Obamacare was miniscule compared to oppostion to the Republicans' assault on Medicare and their never-ending defense of the uber rich.
    LOL .... "Health care reform .... " that would be the Cornhusker Kickback, the Florida Flim-Flam, and the Louisiana Purchase ........ that health care reform

    November 2010 ... how'd that work out for you and the "majority" ?

    No, that was a trifle. I mean the virtual destruction of Medicare proposed by Paul Ryan and supported near-unanimously by Republicans in Congress.

    You should actually read the Ryan plan sometime instead of relying on Democrat party 30 second commercials and the Daily Kos.

    You might actually learn something...............

    I actually have read it, which I'm sure is more than you can say. It's a joke.

    Obama challenges GOP to offer jobs plan

    "President Obama said Thursday he is willing to negotiate with Republicans over a plan to create jobs, but he said he will not engage in superficial talks that "create a lot of theater."

    Obama, appearing with the South Korean president at a press conference before Thursday night's state dinner, said that after he challenged reporters to discover what the GOP's plan for short-term job creation, he has not heard of one yet."

    "Obama warned that "we're not going to wait around" for Republicans to join him in pursuing jobs legislation."

    "Senate Republicans are planning to roll out a specific jobs plan devised by Sens. Rob Portman (Ohio), Rand Paul (Ky.) and John McCain (Ariz.).

    "We have a plan, and we'll have most, if not all, of the Republican senators behind it," McCain said earlier Thursday."

    "I haven't yet seen it," Obama said."

    If, however, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell or House Speaker John Boehner get on board with a way to improve infrastructure or extend the employee pay roll tax cut, "I'll be right there."

    Obama said the trade pacts prove that he is willing to work with Republicans when "they are willing to put politics behind the interests of the American people."

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
