    If you wish to follow the politicians of D.C. with their "BLAME GAME SHUFFLE AND NOT MY FAULT DANCE" that is your right.

    As for me I stand by my words there is no Republican party or Democrat party only people and people makes mistakes ALL PEOPLE MAKES MISTAKES.
    The real problem is getting somebody in politics to take responsibility for their mistakes

    Yes, however, the culture of no-personal-responsibility in this country lies squarely at the Left's doorstep.

    So that's sounds an awful lot like the "BLAME GAME SHUFFLE AND NOT MY FAULT DANCE " to me, cause not too long ago I had a Democrat tell me that the lack of responsibility lies squarely at the Rights doorstep.

    Are you telling me that the Republicans take responsibility for every mistake they make?
    Or are you telling me that Republicans make no mistakes?

    Are you telling me that the Democrats take responsibility for every mistake they make?
    Or are you telling me that Democrats don't make mistakes.?

    Next you'll be telling me only Democrats make mistakes or only Republicans make mistakes??

    Either way when was the last time you heard a political leader take responsibility for anything?
    So I guess neither party is making any mistakes right? lol,lol,lol

    Hint think 10%,
    Just off the top of my head and going from numbers I heard the Obama set echo during the debate for Obamacare - 40 million were uninsured. Our population is over 300 million. Sounds to me like the vast majority were insured already.

    Edit: I see from the census that in 2009 50 million were uninsured and that 37 million of those were employment age.

    The old "I got mine, you get yours" mentality. I'm guessing your "other" you picked for a lean is not progressive, is it?

    Not the point. Read back in the thread and find the context, you'll see how you got it wrong.

    It was my point, so I know what context it was made in and to whom and what I was replying. Look again, you got it wrong.
