    Reality doesn't exist in that liberal utopian world you live in, you know, the one that has a 17 trillion dollar debt, 22 million unemployed/under employed/discouraged workers, stagnant economic growth, and massive dependence on taxpayers for welfare programs

    Can you take a deep breath, but your stereotype rhetoric handbook down and pay attention to what is being argued. Just for a few minutes. You're venom gets old after awhile. Try to hate less and think just a little more.

    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.

    Because the libs in the Senate want an issue, not a solution.

    So tell me what bills are you angry at Harry Reid for not bringing up for a vote.
    Let's start with the repeal of ObamaCare.

Whether you want to debate the merits or not is irrelevant. that is for the Senate to do if Reid let's those bills get to the floor.
    Bills die in Commitee and in other places.

    Here is somthing for you

    Search Bills in Congress - GovTrack.us

    Now find which specific bills Reid is holding up.

    Here is the ABC news article that lists 15, since this was written there are dozens more but that doesn't matter to ideologues. Now you are seeing the partisan rhetoric from the Democrats yet why can't the public decide by having those bills up for debate?

    Either I am having problems with the link, which is possible because I sometimes view news articles on my mobile phone instead
    Of a computer, or the link does not have specific details, but I still cannot find any specifics about which 15 bills the article talks about.

    "I simply". LOL. You linked the Post, Wiki, you did not. It was a slip in.

    BTW: Learn to read the articles you link. The Post accounted for defense spending including the war, per year. Once again, Conservative was correct as everybody and their brother knows now. They also know you will pull slick boy crap to avoid facing the truth.
    Once you've lost all creditability it doesn't come back with people that have standards. Wiki? Veterans Affairs as Defense Spending? LOL.
