    I'm tired of being nice about this lying from people who deny they are Republicans.
    No on cares about last decade, it has no baring on what is going on today. Democrats won in a wave in 08 and decided to push their agenda without a single Republican vote on Obamacare (which they won with a mandate so I don't blame them for doing it). Then after Republicans took the House, that's when gridlock began again. Let's face it, the reason nothing is getting passed today isn't because McConnell, up until tonight he was the MINORITY LEADER. If Reid wanted, he could of worked with Boehner to get stuff done. Instead, both side passed meaningless legislation to die on the other one's floor. Well now one party controls all of congress, and I hope that whether it's Boehner or McConnell (or really someone else... I know it's not likely, but I wish we could have a new Majority leader, someone new and fresh) that can work directly with Obama.

    I haven't listened to Rush for months, but I think I'll be tuning in also to hear what he has to say about it.

    Ted Cruz just stated he thinks the same method of passing Obamacare (reconciliation) should be used to vote for repeal of Obamacare.

    I happen to agree with him. The exit polls clearly showed Obamacare to be something that is of most concern to the voters. Let them use the process the Democrats used to pass the thing, to overturn it. Take it to Obama's desk and let him veto it. Then come back to the Senate and start dissecting it apart piece by piece on the parts they can, some which they have bipartisan support and take them to Obama's desk. No longer will Congress be the party of "No", if legislation doesn't move, it rests on Obama's head.

    This could actually be a good thing for Obama, as it was for Clinton...having to play ball.
