    You are a liar!

    Why do you people insist on lying about this?

    I mean, how could Republican ideas be included in Obamacare if the Republicans were not proposing anything?

    You are liars!

    Apparently you forgot the little meeting that Obama had with the Republicans before this bill was passed. He listened to their ideas and a couple of them actually made it into the legislation.

    Oh, I forgot, that's right, the Republican did offer an alternative to passing the health care reform bill, “Let's throw this bill away and start all over again!” Forgive me, if I don't see the distinction between “start all over again” and ‘No Alternative,’ the effect is the same.

    But, not this Republican Party: it stands against change no matter what; it's the ‘Party of No Alternative’ and the ‘Party that Knows Nothing’ about American problems. It wants to achieve the “Do Nothing” congress and run for election on “Government is the problem” slogan and that's about all it really agrees on.

    Former Speaker Newt Gingrich actually tried to get conservatives to be a ‘Party of Yes’, to offer ideas and solutions for America's issues, but other speakers at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans rejected that moniker. Gov. Jindal and former Gov. Palin both endorsed ‘Party of No’ and really, the party deserves it for all the good they've achieved in this session of Congress.
    WWWHAAAAAT?!! You expect over the last few years the GOP can achieve any sort of participation that doesn't involve rolling over to the Democrats?!!?

    That is laughable!?!

    No ****...soooo, it begs the question...how can posters here argue that the GOP came to the table with nothing, hence, making it the Party of No?

    Well?

    Does common sense run through these posters or what?

    You're still lying. Why?

    Well?

    Dude, you can't reason out what was never reasoned in. You and others need to believe that the GOP is the party of No and so you run with it unceasingly. On the other hand, you'll also argue that some GOP ideas were included in Obamacare.

    You do see the incompatibility of these two positions, right?

    Therefore, there is no reason or logic in your party of no argument.

    You're finished.

    End of story.

    Dismissed.

    The ‘Party of No’ seems to fit as far as I am concerned.
    Yea, just like a rape victim is "Miss No".
