    We will never know if the blueprint BO sent to the senate woulda helped balance the budget now will we?BECAUSE IT WAS SHOT DOWN.

    any thoughts on how the vote would go,if bohner would put on the senate floor, for a vote by the WHOLE HOUSE instead of holing up with only republicans voting on his useless plan B?

    Yeah, no ****...Why is it that Obama couldn't even get his own party to vote with him? I'd call that a pretty big fail...BTW, why won't Reid introduce a budget? We are going to continue with these silly faux deadlines until we get a budget, and Reid and the demo's would rather run the country out of empty pizza boxes on top of the fridge....Not good.

    That was a dumb move. Boehner is allowing Obama, Reid, and Pelosi to play the repubs like a fiddle.

    We look at the same thing but we see two different things. I believe the only way democrats ever win is through fraud. I also believe that when men and women of courage and principle do the right thing se get more of them. So it is well within reason to plan for winning a majority of the seats in the senate.


    BUTT!there is hope in the future, even for the "House Of Representative".The old guard is dieing off, the color of our country is being replaced by a slightly off-white,younger citizenry (voter),whom the tea party has seen fit to flail at,like Don Quijote flailing,at the windmill.The fact is the Mayberry world, that you seem to be yearning for;for some people never existed.And that 'some people' are now on the precipice of being the majority(voters plural ) in the country, that you and i call home.

    Your right on this statement though“we will no longer have an American that even resembles the one I grew up in “.Hopefully that will continue to be "hope and change that we can believe in ". Also,hopefully we will not be lied into unpaid for wars ever again. Especially if it involves us taking our focus of of a war such as Afghanistan,which got us bogged down in a quagmire that turned in the longest war in Americas history. Cause and effect?
    It is entirely possible that you care very little for liberty and freedom. Those concepts know no particular skin color or age.

    I am not surprised that you prefer slogans to substance. If you did not Romney would be President and the nation would be on its way to economic recovery.

    What a nonsensical statement. Boehner is the Speaker of the House of Representatives. He is not a member of the Senate. A representative does not put legislation on the Senate floor for a vote by the House.

    This is ignorance on display.

    Let the whole nation go over the cliff together. Suddently lots of people who pay no federal income taxes will enjoy the experience along with those of us who pay most of the taxes.

    Democratic fraud and i don't like liberty and freedom in spite of the fact that i left part of my bod on foreign soil fighting for "liberty and freedom ".

    That's it?Thatís all you have in the tank?

    What demo fraud matches early voting hours shrinking in Ohio? What demo fraud is comparable to Ohio secretary of state Jon Husteds order allowing late voting in rep districts, while shrinking them in demo districts?

    What demo fraud caused Floridas Governor Rick Scott to refuse to extend early voting hours in predominantly demo districts?What demo fraud caused the Florida Legislature, consisting of 67.2% reps to 32.8% demos cut early voting hours in half this year?YEAH SOME VOTER FRAUD.this **** has get cleared out before the mid-terms.
