    BTW didn't Newt and the republicans try this line of BS before? How'd that turn out?

    So Government shrunk during the Bush years?

    Repbulicans took over Congress, Bill Clinton staed "Big government is over", and we had a hugely prosperous decade, thanks solely and only to Newt and the Republicans. I'm sure your college professor lied and told you differently.

    It was rammed through the house, and shelved in the Senate.


    Let's hope they kill it all together now.

    Hardly. Not really heartbroken over all this. Since I really couldn't care less you're giving the keys back to the dudes who crashed the car in the first place.

    Nice Job :

    In other words, "working as intended."

    A more significant problem arises when a government "arrogant with its power" is able to work efficiently.

    By the way. I'm not a Liberal or a conservative. IN FACT: I'm probably more conservative then liberal, but that doesn't mean I support a party as ****ty as the Republicans.

    Niether the Republicans nor the Democrats are parties that could ever represent me. They are pathetic excuses for Political parties and both deserve the shaft if you ask me.

    I guess you forgot how many times they were completely shut out by the democrats.
    Right, Obama said, "We won, you lost" great way to compromise. I can only hope for that same kind of compromise now.
