Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
Preposterous hyperpartisan BS.
You call them "the party of No" when they oppose YOUR agenda. Well big shock... mostly they don't agree with your agenda! Duh!
Saying No to gov't expansion is not a bad thing in many people's eyes, sorry.

Well Chappy, see how well it goes when you go with simply partisan bitching instead of talking about actual issues? We win on the issues, let's leave the mindless mud slinging for the other guys.
The Republicans in minority have nearly doubled the highest total than the Democrats in minority.The frequency of filibusters – plus threats to use them – are measured by the number of times the upper chamber votes on cloture. Such votes test the majority's ability to hold together 60 members to break a filibuster.
In the 110th Congress of 2007-2008, with Republicans in the minority, there were a record 112 cloture votes. In the current session of Congress – the 111th – for all of 2009 and the first two months of 2010 the number already exceeds 40. The most the filibuster has been used when Democrats were in the minority was 58 times in the 106th Congress of 1999-2000

Do you honestly believe that Republicans in Congress personally liked the bill, and only voted against it because stopping it from passing would help them, which isn't even true?
