    It was a blanket statement. I can refer to rightwing legislation either. I suppose the ACA is close as 58% of Americans were against it when passed and today depending on which poll you refer to the numbers are between 51% and 57% The 57% in a CNN poll and the 51% a CBS poll. I am not debating the merits of the law, just stating what is the will of the majority of the American people. I have a problem with any of our elected officials not listening to the will of their constituents. This is why 2010 happened.

    2014 had the makings of another 2010, that is until the House republicans jumped the gun and now are playing stupid politics and falling right into the hands of the Democratic ploy makers. Democrats know how to play the political game, the republicans do not even know how to dress for it.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I'm not sure its going to happen....but clearly the teabaggers are damaging the GOP in the eyes of the voters. What is amazing, well maybe not so much, is that Boehner is so afraid of the teabaggers that he is willing to let them take down the entire party. I thought Boehner had more of a backbone than that, but obviously he is so afraid of losing his speakership that he is willing to take down the entire party with him. Very interesting to say the least.

    This is so rich! Here let me help you:

    The ACA is based on Romneycare, a conservative program conceived by conservative thinktanks, espoused by conservatives like Gingrich and put into effect by a conservative governor.

    People being "against" legislation doesn't make it leftwing. Usually the reverse it true.

    In any case, the ACA is based on Romneycare, a conservative program conceived by conservative thinktanks, espoused by conservatives like Gingrich and put into effect by a conservative governor.

    If this is the best you can do for "leftwing" legislation, it's hard to take your claim seriously. I'm going to have to file it in the discredited tea party meme file.

    Yeah, I know...why would those 'radical leftwing'ers' support a policy/law that advances gross corporatism which they have exhibited such a disdain for...

    Rich INDEED!

    BHAHAHAHAHAH! INDEED...Own it!

    Wow, substantive repost.

    In any case the polls say what they say. You conservatives haven't had a lot of luck recently claiming libral bias in polls, have you? Remember that whole 2012 election thingie.

    I agree. And the liberal puppy eyes are opening up now that they see what their new health insurance plan is going to cost them. The overwhelming number of responses I'm hearing are along the line of "I knew costs would go up for some, but not for me". Good morning sunshine, we've been telling you for 3 years, do you believe it now? I expect by spring things are going to change dramatically. Funny thing is many liberals are quick to point out how everybody should be treated the same until they realize that they themselves are above the line and will need to participate. That is when we see their true colors.

    Hey, the liberal bias is alive and well in the lamestream media.

    And you guys don't seem to have any problems playing the self-serving race card, do you?

    Wasn't it you liberals who used to say "Question authority"? Well, now it's "If you do question authority then you're a racist."

    I don't think so, I said having one party in control of the House and the other party in control of the senate prevents extreme right/left wing legislation from occurring. That is true. It might have been better to say having one party in control of the house and the other in control of the senate prevents both parties in pushing their political agenda upon the American People.

    To make government work in this case, both parties have to be willing to compromise with some give and take. Today, neither party is willing to take that route. It is my way or the highway with both political parties. The die hard on each side of the aisle can't see this though. They only see one side. I think this is why for the first time in the history of this country those who identify themselves as independents are now more numerous than those who identify with both, I said both political parties. 46% say they are now independents, 43% identify with either the Republican and the Democratic Party.

    All these political shenanigans are taking a toll on both major parties.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
