    Where did you get that data? I distinctly remember that prior to Bush's reelection, democrats wanted to push as fact that he was the first President to have a net job loss, but were unable to because job growth increased and he was a positive in net jobs by the election.

    And if the GOP wants to go down with the Tea party, then I say great! From the ashes we will see the birth of a new party! A party that really represents us!

    And he will once the House gets off the delusion that their anti-ACA riders will pass the Senate and be signed by the president. The Senate did pass the House's leaner CR , just without the amendments to the ACA. All the House has to do is pass that and we'll be set.

    You proved me right....and I didn't force you to.
    Do you realize that a CR is based upon the previous budget which didn't have a trillion dollar deficit in it? What was 2008 spending levels and how could Bush create even a projected deficit in 2009 with 2 CR's at 2008 levels? You simply don't get it or are so bullheaded you refuse to get it. The Bush 2009 budget was submitted on time, never passed by the Democrat controlled Congress so CR's were passed all at current funding levels. Obama takes office, changes the 2009 budget, signs it, Congress approves it and of course blames Bush for the deficit. Obamabots and people like you buy the rhetoric but all that shows is ignorance.

    Since all spending bills originate in the House, it was the Senate that changed the House's CR, therefore it is the Senate that shutdown the govt. Pesky little facts from basic civics seem to get in the way of Obama supporters here.

    Ever take a history course? You see to think that the Tea Party is a group of terrorists. the original Tea Party members were Patriots as is this current group. I can see however from your posts that you have a problem with doing the patriot thing like balancing the budget and making people responsible for their own healthcare. It is frustrating watching liberals swoon all over themselves diverting from reality in that healthcare is a personal responsibility and that the uninsured are paid for by the state taxpayers not the Federal taxpayer so why do we have ACA forced upon us by federal bureaucrats?

    In addition why are there so many exemptions from a "great" piece of legislation like ACA? Interesting that Obama's biggest supporters the unions got an exemption, why?

    So let me get this straight: The republican strategy has been, all along, to make an impossible demand so that the senate would change it, and then, by hoping that the American people are all ignorant--they think we're stupid--convince them that it was the senate democrats all along! Do you honestly believe what you're fighting for? Why fight for something that is obviously a lie?

    Like I said, the right are the real looters that Ayn Rand was talking about...

    But that c.r originated in the house, they just don't like the changes made.

    And let us consider what demands have been made by both sides?

    What is impossible about the Republican demand, eliminating all exemptions and postponing implementation for a year? Explain please? Do you honestly believe that Obama and liberals give a damn about you?

    Politicians are spokesmen for private interest. Private interest can be summed up as the corporate financial system running the money system through the IMF, World Bank, ECB, Fed, etc.
    That would be true except for one thing: Barack Obama, he has proven that he is not a puppet by giving us--the people who hold your opinion--a fighting chance! That is the true genius of the Affordable care Act!
