    Yet you call the teaparty to task. The administration wanted the shutdown. Had the "closed" signs for all the parks ready to go. You ant a tantrum, obama threw the tantrum, not the tea party.

    Sorry, I rather a president that doesn't negotiate on what is a perfectly reasonable idea than a bunch of savages with no reasonable idea other than nuclear options.

    so you applaud the president for standing on principle, and deride the tea party for doing ghe same. You agree with the president, even though constitutionally the House has the purse strings, not the senate, not the WH. Got it.

    Because the president's idea is actually a reasonable start to fixing the massive issue of health problem in this country. You seem to have a problem with the word "reasonable". Are you a Tea Party member? If so, I will refrain from speaking to you any further as you are incapable - by your political nature - of understanding the ramifications such a word has.

    I'm sorry, I thought you were genuinly concerned with resonable. Having differing opinions on healthcare and how to approach it, but it appears for you, reasonable is "agree with me and my views or you arent worthy of consideration" .
    I think the tea party has the right idea, reverse the massive government take over.of healthcare. Kinda think the 98,000,000 people over the next year that lose their doctors, money and insurance that they want and meets thier needs well find your stance rather unreasonable.

    Rigell is a GOP congressman in an area that voted for Obama where the entire local economy is dependent on government spending--specifically military & NASA spending. If selling out principles in order to stay in office is the example you admire, then you might want to change your lean to Pragmatist.

    You are being dishonest. There is no reasonable "opinion" towards health care reform from the Tea Party Savages other than "more of the same".

    Isn't it the GOP that says a Congressman should represent his constituents back home??
