    Gruber really torpedoed Obama's signature legislation. It's only Howard Dean and some Liberal posters who think otherwise.
    Saw a clip of Angus King, Maine, I think, being interviewed on Fox.
    He's still hanging in there.
    He dragged out the "why don't you want people to have healthcare" line.
    These guys simply do not have shame.

    Did you hear Howard this morning when talking about Scott Walker wanting to drug test welfare recipients, and he said how this is evidence that the GOP has not only declared a war on women, but a war on poor people too?

    My favorite part of the whole show was when he said that Wall Streeters should also be drug tested because they get tax breaks and that's welfare.

    I almost wet my pants.

    We will have 54 or 55......the other good news is .

    In Nevada, Republicans now control all levels of state government. The lone Democrat elected statewide is Reid. So Harry is useless in Nevada and really can't say he speaks for them.....a fitting an end to his Career. Before he hits pasture.....as the Demos want Shumer for the Minority.

    He also said he wants Walker tested since he gets money (from the taxpayers as pay for being Governor) for doing nothing. Wasn't Howard a Governor of VT? So he was paid for doing nothing too. These clowns got bitch-slapped in the mid-terms and now need to show how "strong" they are... war on "poor people" --- laughable. But you know, I could agree to have all of WallStreet tested, all of the state assembly's tested, every governor, senator, house member from State to Federal level tested and if it shows they have illegal drugs then what? Can their paycheck be revoked? Of course not... the political class can main line heroine without fear of repercussion unless they are caught with the drug or commit some other offense.

    It would be easier to just legalize all drugs and let people do what they want to do. People are already using their welfare for all sorts of things welfare wasn't meant to be used.... so limit where it can be used. Isn't that a better solution or change the way it's doled out. Instead of giving them a plastic card with money on it put together a payment program which pays bills, issues credit at stores and will only be accepted for food and other essentials which are approved for use.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    As for the rest of your post, you make me laugh
    Well you are laughing at your own ignorance and inability to read in context. I made no reference about polls or caring about your representative, but at least you are in sync with the other partisan hacks and ideologues.

    Yup, Howard was governor of the state of VT. It explains a lot.

    I agree that drugs should be legalized. I also agree that credits at food stores and other essentials is a far better way of handing out taxpayer money to people. I'll bet it would save everyone a lot.

    I don't agree with Howard that tax breaks falls into the same category as "welfare" in the context that Walker is addressing it. Then again, I'm a voter, so I'm stupid...according to Jonathan Gruber.

    Re: Stupidity of the American Voter?

    Back to the topic.

    What baffles me is how the far left almost had a collective heart attack when Phil Gramm called us a "nation of whiners" yet they are strangely silent on a direct, obnoxious, devastating insult like this. Except TDS who actually agrees with Gruber and who is proud to call himself "stupid".

    What's up with that?
