    In 1996, House Democrats also won the popular vote but remained in the minority (kind of)
    Yes, isn't it amazing how bankrupt big cities continue to vote for the policies that created the economic disaster they live in? These are the same people voting for similar economic policies that got their city into trouble in the first place but it will never matter as long as they get their handouts. What you continue to show is that popular vote dependent on the big cities mean nothing, what does matter are the individual districts around the country and in that case Republicans continue to win the big picture.

    You do NOT Change law by blackmailing funding for the Government.
    That simply is NOT the way it is done.. except by the Tea Party Clowns who just hate Obama and anything he does.

    These Bigots keep wanting to "take back the country"... from a Twice elected govt! WTF?
    Health Care Mandates Were a GOP idea.. until Obama liked them.

    You paint this section with the worst partisan Garbage imaginable.. with FauxNews/NYPost/Daily Telegraph etc.
    Those Murdoch Tabloids are the best thing you try. It gets even worse/Blog after that.
    And your 'logic' is as bad as your sources.
    You really don't understand the shutdown do you? Why is it that one piece of legislation causes the shutdown of the govt? Ever think that just maybe liberalism and the liberal media is making a fool out of you?

    but the people who live in the city have the right to vote too. you cannot deny them their right to vote because they sometimes vote for the wrong things.

    Another of the Right-Wing wonders chirps in.
    Everyone understands what's happening here, it's not just a 'liberal' opinion.
    Mature/sober Republicans understand, including the WSJ, etc.

    Your post was Empty GARBAGE/Conspiratorial Innuendo. Put some meat on it next time and try not using Fox or Breitbart et al.
    I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.

    Re: Most would blame Republicans

    When passing new bills, the Republicans would be entirely within their rights to use their leverage in the house to demand concessions from the democrats. However, it is not acceptable to try and eliminate legislation that has already become law. The method for repealing laws you don't like is to pass your own bill through congress.

    Of course they do and they are represented by someone in the House just like everyone else. They have very limited impact on the House however and liberals seem to have a problem with that. The Senate however is a statewide election and big cities can carry the state for the liberals and usually do, i.e. California, NY, Illinois. The House is called the "People's House" for a reason, a reason that liberals like you and others want to ignore. Elections do have consequences and the consequences for liberals is that the House is Republican.

    LOL, yep, disagree with you so call me a teabagger or a terrorist because I elected my Representative to do what they are doing. Not sure where you live or how old you are but a good civics class might help you. Seems that what is good for liberals is good for the country when the country disagrees liberals go crazy and blame the tea party.

    by that same reasoning the people also voted for the senate to remain held by the democratic majority and to reelect president obama.

    Did the law that was passed site the exemptions that Obama has given to contributors and other supporters? Why is it that Obama can negotiate for exemptions with campaign contributors and other supporters but not with the members of "the People's House?"

    Still don't get it, do you. What effect do you believe the City of Los Angeles and San Francisco have on statewide elections? What effect do the people of Chicago have on the state of Illinois or the liberal city o NYC have no the statewide elections? They will carry the state for the liberals but lose the war because of the districts.
