    The Heritage Foundation wrote the original plan. But, you, of course, probably do not know that. Hence, the old meme about Fos News people knowing less than people who do not even watch news.

    I chuckle because that's why the Right can't win general elections.


    I just attribute democrats claiming that republicans are against Obama's far left policies because of him being multi-racial as sheer stupidity, there is no other explanation for anything so blatantly wrong. Jee, could it be because they are far left? DUH!

    There are facts, and then there are liberal facts, also known as lies.
    Facts have a liberal bias. Yes. I know.

    A new one has Rep. Amash being primaried by a RINO, a new trend emerging.
    They need a cleansing. But, judging by the crowd in here, the cleansing will be harder to the Right, not a shift to the middle. Sad. But true.

    Gerrymandering is not giving small states a voice. I hope you know the difference.

    By the way, I don't run to the moderators, too bad you have no idea who is doing that. I do and don't respond to them any more.
    I know you don't run to the mods. You enjoy this stuff too much.

    LOL, you're a hoot. We have had gerrymandering in AL for years to ensure a minority was elected by order of the Justice Department. How would you explain the different results between the 2006 elections and the 2010 election given the districts were the same?
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    I hope you know that both gerrymandering occurred long before the Republicans took control of the House

    Which is why small states lost this right to gerrymander in appointing their Senators with the 17th amendment.

    We've been through all that Paul.
    The several entities of the 2008 Dem. coalition didn't vote.
    And, Fox set up the TEAparty and pulled the strings at townhalls with shouted talking TEA talking points.
    How about that ist district CD battle in AL?
    A new trend is TEAs getting RINO'd.

    Honestly, I wouldn't put it past Cantor/Ryan to put a one-DAY continuing resolution out each day as all of our dear leaders have a "conversation/discussion".1st and ten, do it again each day.
    The truth of interest, it amounts to almost 50% of what BHO has addeed to the TAD.

I don't care how long it takes, keep the freeze, spending 3.7 trillion until the budget is balanced, until all expenditures, spending is less than all revenue/income/money coming in. Keep the freeze in place until there is a 200 billion surplus which must be maintained every year hence and start paying down the debt.

    Interest rate can't stay this low. As it is we are paying 420 billion in interest alone and that is at roughly 2%. what happens if interest rates rise to there normal level, you know how much the interest payment would be on 17 trillion at the historical average rate of 6%. ONE TRILLION dollars a year.

    We are living in a fools paradise if we or anyone, anybody thinks interest rates will remain between 1 and 2 percent.
