    Re: Government shutdown: House GOP to delay individual mandate

    If Repubs ever get elected POTUS, Democrats should never forget what Repubs have done these last 5 years to Obama. Every "Repub trick" should be thrown back in their faces and then some. If Repubs get the Senate, do you really think they won't go 100% nuclear option?

    They wouldn't TRY. He would be gone. Not only from the Leadership, but from the Party as well. Maybe he should have thought of that before he agreed to run for the Speakership.



    True. The question is, could he get those 17 votes. I don't think so. That means he's in the MINORITY, and maybe that's where he ought to go, permanently.... the Democratic Party would be happy to have him, I'm sure.
    Tell me how does losing the 2012 presidential election, failing to win control of the senate, and only possess 17 vote edge in the house, make the republicans the majority?

    as usual your assertions are not it the scope of reality
    Where was this 61% on election night? If the people truly wanted to repeal the affordable care act, Romney would have won.

    Indeed, the Democrats should have impeached Bush in 2006, as payback for the ridiculous Clinton impeachment.

    The problem with Democrats is they actually think conservatives are civilized people. They're freaks. You can't really reason with them; the best strategy is to totally delegitimizie them.

    Lol! Unlike this that would violate the Constitution.

    The people have not voted the Republicans enough legislative power to do what they're trying to do here.
    Actually, they have. It's called a power of the house.

    Except for the fact that there was no reason to expect Romney would repeal Obamcare.

    How do you know he can't? He won't take a vote!

    Because anything they did in the last 5 years is new.

    and that was because the public was still believing the Obama care lies helped by the biased media covering for and or pushing his narrative. America is waking up from the Obama Kool-Aid drunk and realized the have been played for a fool with all those Obama care lies it is why his poll numbers are dropping

    shows how much you know you have to be in the majority to evoke the nuclear option

    Obama would be a lame duck for the last two years just a figure head with no power if he doesn't get impeached first
