    To borrow from their playbook, this must mean they're scared of her.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Republicans have a clear history of raping regulations that are meant to rein in destructive business behaviors.

    The only way to stamp out corruption in Washington is for the people to put folks in power that will stop it. If this doesn't get Americans as a nation upset and unified over an issue, I don't know what will ever do it.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    Your credibility went out the window when you complained about right wing hackery.

    Let me guess: the very people that will stop it are Liberals?

    I expect both left and right to fight against this type of economic nonsense that allows the worst players to raid the American taxpayers.
    You know what bothers me about that, is that so much attention is paid to the so called "far right tea partiers" that serve to obstruct congress, but no attention is ever paid to Elizabeth Warren. I wonder why that is...

    I find this quite amusing, hypocritical and downright pathetic.

    1. "closed door negotiations"...that wasn't a problem back in 2009, but it is now, eh?
    2. The Party that constantly called for "compromise", that never actually compromised unless they were forced to it kicking and screaming, STILL can't bring themselves to compromise. Just who do they think they are?
    3. Warren plays a very dangerous game and I suspect her own Party is going to shut her down. They certainly can't afford to be labeled as the Party that shuts down the government and the more they oppose Congress in the next two years the worse things will be for them in 2016.
    4. If Warren drags the ultra-leftwing loonies along with her...effectively creating a kind of lefty Tea Party...she will do irreparable damage to the Democratic Party. I hope she goes for it.

    I think if their scared of her, it's the exact same way that the left is scared the Tea Party will shut down the government or throw it into chaos. In fact, what Warren is doing reminds me a lot of the Tea Party. Not in policy mind you, but the tactics certainly.

    Careful what you wish for. Warren would break Hillary in the primaries, just like Obama did. Then you basically have President Warren, because Republicans can't beat her.

    I'm very scared of her. If she was elected president, she would make Obama look like a great president.

    LOL!!

    Any politician who votes against the budget bill because of any of these items is not only a stupid ass, willing to shut down the government for these things that SHOULD be there, but prove themselves to be total douchebags.
