    These are not INCREASED levels for people.
    This is SOMETHING they don't even have.
    Once you mention modifications, now we're talking.
    Btw, I do have the ear of some of my Repub Congressman's people.
    Yes, taxes support SS, and we can discuss the ramifications at your leisure, but I'm out for the evening... Good night...

AFA is off the table Republicans need to do their job. We don't need terrorist in our own country and that is exactly what they are doing now. I would not be so harsh, but what would the replace it with......we are still waiting for that one!
    There is no reason to offer a replacement when the federal government lacks the authority to be involved in the matter in the first place.

    I thought everyone loved executive agencies. Isn't it just great the president has so many ways around the other branches of government? The Supreme court seems to think so.

    Since when has it ever worked like that? You either figure out a way to make me shut up or deal with me continually trying to stop you.

    I cannot help the fact that Republicans/Teabaggers/Libertarians/ or what ever the flavor of the day is. Ya'll lost its time to move on. This is by far and away the worst House I have ever seen a bunch of whiny babies. I meant shut up as in all the righties. Right now you people act like someone stole your pacifier and your diaper is full it been that way for 6 years now.

    Just like I have no plans to offer any alternatives to Obamacare I have no plans in stopping my support of whatever methods are necessary to undo the welfare state and the liberal agenda. I don't care that you passed some law and think it's over. It's not, and it will never will be over until you shut people like me up forever.

    Interesting...

    When GWB and a GOP congress decided to invade Iraq did you STFU?

    When GWB and a GOP congress passed the tax cuts did you STFU?

    When GWB and a DEMOCRATIC congress passed TARP did you STFU?

    I could go on but I'm thinking you did NOT...

    Re: Boehner: Obama should negotiate on debt, but not with me

    Obviously, what Spkr Boehner and House Tea Party Republicans are proposing is nothing more than a partisan gimmick at best, anarchy at worse. What they're trying to do is put the blame of a government shutdown should it come to that squarely on the back of the President and Senate Democrats, i.e., "don't pass a Continuing Resolution to keep the government funded and it's all 'their' fault". Problem is, Boehner and the Tea Partiers he abdicated to forget about this document called the Constitution.

    Article 1:

    Sect. 1 - All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

    Sect. 2, Clause 18 - To make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into execution the foregoing powers, and all other powers vested by this Constitution in the government of the United States, or in any department or officer thereof.

    Sect. 7, Clause 2 - Every bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a law, be presented to the President of the United States; if he approve he shall sign it.

    Sect. 9, Clause 7 - No money shall be drawn from the treasury, but in consequence of appropriations made by law.

    It's really simple, ladies and gentlemen. Contrary to what you may be hearing on Conservative talk radio or on FoxNews, if Congress (specifically, Tea Party Republicans) refuses to adhere to the very bill they passed which subsequently became law, towit, "ObamaCare", they in effect are in direct violation of the Constitution. Put simply, Sen. Reid was 100% correct when he called those who came up with this stupid defunding measure as anarchist. They may not like ObamaCare, but to use a defunding measure to force a President to abandon it which would, in effect, throw the entire country into chaos. Such an action is extremely irresponsible and violates their oath of office as federal legislators. Those who favor this measure would be doing the same thing they claim the President has done - picking and choosing which laws they will uphold and which ones they will ignore.
