    How can Obama be a dictator if he cannot get his policy's implemented through congress?
    He has bypassed Congress. He is ruling now and no one is stopping him. He should be impeached but the nation is broken.

    Are you suggesting that you are unaware of what Obama has done and is doing?

    I am for all bills passed by either House getting to the floor for debate.

    Those bills are meaningless. They are intended to fool you. If the establishment Republicans were serious they would defund its implementation.

    We shall have to rely upon Artlcle V to restore the nation to a limited government.

    The senate and house regularly pass different versions of the same bill, the house passes its version of a jobs bill, the senate passes its version of a jobs bill. However it seems that the current congress is reluctant to reconcile the two versions of a bill in conference committees. Why is that?

    Guess you have no pride as you have no problem embarrassing yourself.
    $1.4 Trillion in Defense Spending is $1.4 Trillion in Defense Spending. How can you say NSA and Homeland Security is not defense? Talk about a disingenuous argument.

    I did respond to it. One doesn't mean the other isn't. Both play these games and have been. Your eye sight is just skewed to see only one.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    The House passed a number of bills that are sitting in Harry Reid's desk, why? We aren't talking about different versions. We are talking about Harry Reid being the obstructionist

    Was the issue raised when Bush was in office? I wasn't even here then so how would you know my position?

    And your skewed, biased, partisan ideology doesn't allow you to see that you have been brainwashed
