Emphesis on 'swear'
it got us control of 21 shiny new state legislatures for us to GERRYMANDER to our maximal partisan advantage the next 5 plebiscites for lower house (as well as state and local elections)
it got us 693 new state legislators coast to coast, most in modern history
it got us 10 new republican governors and 6 new senate seats
it got us a political landscape in which FOURTEEN incumbent dem senators are in real danger heading into 2012, compared to only ONE republican, scott brown from chappaquiddick
it got us tax cuts for the rich, courtesy of barack hussein obama's endorsement
it got us republican control of spending 2011, the summary surrender of reid's ridiculous and rotten omnibus
it's gonna get us repeal of obamacare thru lower house
it's gonna get us repeal of the individual mandate thru house and senate (ask claire mccaskill), and what's THAT gonna do to obamacare?
we're gonna take on the burdens placed on the states, the exemptions of more than 200 toobigs, the half T cuts to m and m, the hiring of new irs agents, the 1099's...
how's obamacare gonna proceed without its prime provisions?
how can it move when the states are so greatly empowered by the legislative language to implement themselves the exchanges, republicans controlling so many gubs, leg's, ag's and INSURANCE COMMISSIONERS?
it got us the white house's surrender on the absurd idea of moving mass murderers like ksm to venues in manhattan before the likes of lance ito, it got us the apparently permanent continued operation of GITMO
it got us the end of cap and trade, of global warming as a political issue, even
it got us the terminations of the white house careers of david axelrod, robert gibbs, christina romer, peter orszag, larry summers, dennis blair, stanley mcchrystal, james jones
it got us thru-the-roof ratings for fox news, while cnn and msnbc struggle to survive
it got us SUBPOENA POWER to ask in committee almost anyone almost anything we want about almost any issue we find worthy of america's interests
among many other things
party on, progressives, persist with your puerile expressions of pique
republicans will perforce prosper
mom and pop prefer grownups in positions of power
Got to love how the new congress Republicans started backtracking on their election pledges even before they were sworn in..
Spending cuts are now "hypothetical" according to aides of the GOP leadership.. go figure!
So much chest thumping for taking over the House, the weakest of the big three. The other two are going to shut the House up pretty damned fast. In fact, I didn't think that that branch of Congress was ever really relevant until you have shown me the light.
I know, a little gain is better than none and the GOP hasn't had anything to celebrate for a few years.
HELPING HILLARY PICK OUT HER INAUGURAL GOWN!The jokes write themselves!
weakest?So much chest thumping for taking over the House, the weakest of the big three.
just the facts, maam:
repeal in the house---try to stop it
repeal of the mandate thru both houses---ask ms mccaskill
tax cuts for ALL americans---thanks to obama/clinton
hearings on the burdens obamacare puts on the states, half a trillion dollars cuts to medicare, the 1099's...
why do YOU think hhs sebelius EXEMPTED the toobigs?
why must only SOME of us abide by obamacare's constraints?
did you hear about the irs' heavy handedness yesterday, reported by the agency's "internal watchdog" just in time for fred upton, the slasher, to tear into?
Report rips IRS 'torment' of taxpayers - Jennifer Epstein - POLITICO.com
why did reid abandon his obese omnibus?
and how 'bout that GITMO?
only now?I didn't think that that branch of Congress was ever really relevant until you have shown me the light.
you once thought the house of representatives was irrelevant?
who holds the initiative, what is the president's agenda moving forward?
seeya in committee, chum
