    I don't know if anyone can argue a specific concrete reason, but the numbers are pretty obvious....

    We should continue to provide a tax break to companies when they ship jobs overseas? Not if the consequences of these actions included making it more difficult for American companies to compete in a world market. The US is not the only place on this planet that is worth anything.
    If it doesn't benefit the middle class and our economy, I frankly don't care if someone doesn't get an edge on selling out his fellow countrymen. Of course if your concern is individual profits over what is best for the middle class, the GOP is your party for the job.

    We should not require all donors to political campaigns to reveal themselves? No, it violates a constitutional right to privacy. If you did this you would have to require everyone to present their votes publically.
    How about the peoples right to a representative government. Again, people have a clear choice in the parties of which way they want to go.

    We should not increase the military basic pay? No. http://militaryadvantage.military.co...deral-workers/ On a side note, it is a democrat that first tried to freeze military salary incrases in 2011
    The CBO report, which was requested by Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), attempts to com*pare reg*u*lar mil*i*tary com*pen*sa*tion (base pay, basic allowance for sub*sis*tence, and basic allowance for hous*ing) with the fed*eral cash com*pen*sa*tion (salary and over*time).

    If he did, he was wrong to do so IMO, but why do you support the GOP blocking the 2011 increase for basic pay for the military?


    We should not improve aural protection for members of the Armed Forces. Protection needs to be improved all around. The bill was not properly thought out, nor does the proper funding exist to make all of these top of the line improvements. Until a non-fantasy more obtainable plan is presented, this bill should have been blocked as it was. It is great to wish for
    So, its better to spend the money on the back end in veterans benefits to cover hearing damage?

    We should not give LOCAL, community banks access to billions of dollars to loan to small businesses? No, this is not "fair" business practice. This would be like giving the fat kid 4 strikes in a little league game because he was not as good as the other players. It is a nice gesutre, but it makes as much sense as slowing down on the freeway to let just one person merge at the expense of the several mile long line of other poeple behind you. The rules are the rules and we all follow them regardless of our positions or excuses.
    Small businesses are the fat kid in little league? Really that is how you feel about them?

    We should not make excess nonlethal supplies available for domestic emergency assistance? I don't think you fully understand what this means and you are simply reacting to a biased blog that appears at the top of google searches when you search any one of the questions above. Excess nonlethal supplies are already available for emergency assistance.... United States Code: Title 10,2557. Excess nonlethal supplies: availability for humanitarian relief, domestic emergency assistance, and homeless veterans assistance | LII / Legal Information Institute
    Did you notice the date. The supplies are available because it was passed, despite GOP efforts at blocking it.

    Now, maybe you won't mind answering why your posts always seem to be presented one sided and why you always feel that only one side is worth considering.
    You are making the incorrect assumption that only one side has been considered

    Right, because there isn't one. Its just like when Cain was being interviewed and was called on his often repeated talking point, that innovation is being stifled by overregulation, and the interviewer asked him to name one regulation that had stifled innovation, and he couldn't do it, Cain finally ended up saying he would have to get back to him on that.

    The point of my comment is that there is not one concrete reason that anyone can say is the sole responsibility for the jobs market crash AS YOU HAD ASKED FOR. Just because you ask some stupid question that has no real answer does not mean that you have won some sort of debate. Whatever the many reasons may be, as you could see from the chart I showed you, the jobs market went straight to hell from the onset of democrat control of congress. These were questions that YOU asked, and yet you choose to ignore the real answers when you are provided them? You are not here to "debate" anything, you are here to be a little prick that has no intention of having an open mind and learning anything. YOU are what is the problem with America to it's very core. YOU and all of the closed minded, willingly ignorant fools that plague our society. YOU are the one that is not interested in what is best for everyone, YOU are the one that is simply trying to "win". Pathetic.

    Why would Democrats filibuster their own control of the Congress?

    LOL, Stimulus 2 failed in the Senate just like Stimulus One failed after implemention. Anything Obama tells you, you buy. That just makes you look foolish and destroys credibility.
