    I do support decriminalization of prostitution and drugs. So?

    The phrase "1900's corporatist America" doesn't make enough sense to formulate a response.

    I've said it over and over again. The Republicans allowed the savages from the Tea Party to take over and they'll be paying for it next election. As ****ty as it sounds, say hello to a weak GOP house, a Democratic Senate and another Democratic president next year guys. Thank the Tea Party for it. The best part is that the Tea Party fans will come here and tell me 75% of Republican are traitors or RINOs - insurgents to the cause or better yet blame the media for all the negative coverage the GOP hijacking is taking.
    Yes, you have said it over and over again and you are just as wrong each time. The shutdown will have zero impact on 20124 and even less on 2016. But you could clarify something for me, however. Aside from pure hyperbolic nonsense, what do you mean by calling Tea Party members savages? That just makes you sound stupid.

    Good example. Whether, in light of evidence later revealed to the public you view McCarthy as correct or not, he was a minority of one inspiring this effort.

    So, it's your assertion those 18 non-leadership house members are controlling the other couple hundred?

    Actually it's a larger number who are against Obamacare and for getting public spending under control.

    It's the Dimocrats who want more spending and ever higher debts.

    The Tea Party will grow in influence, as it should.

    That's right. Republicans in the House and Senate are united in opposition to Obamacare. This current feud was over tactics. And yes, the Tea Party tactics in this case were foolish.

    It may be too late, and that's the scary part. Look at the '12 House races. The Dems were +2 and lost handily. That's only the 4th time that's happened in 100 years. Because of gerrymandering they need to be +10 to have a shot at taking back the House. In contrast, the GOP wave election of '94 was only a +7 win for the GOP.

    In short.. Restricting means that the small percentage of the US that considers itself to be Tea Party controls a slim majority of a controlling majority of a slim majority of one half of one third of the US Government. In other words, they're now baked into the system. Somehow we have to find a way to govern when the majority of the House is elected by people who don't want the government to function.

    It seems Mexican geography now extends as far north as the Canadian border.

    Americans often look to Canada on how to run a government health insurance scheme so it seems only fair to let the neophytes know when you're screwing it all up.

    Not just the Republicans or Tea Party members are against Obamacare but the majority of the American people as well. They know it is dysfunctional and unaffordable.
