    But...but.. I thought the law was designed to put insurance companies out of business and make us switch to single payer? Which is it?
    So you think their constituents want another recession so they can lose their job? LOL

    What part do you not get that we are broke? Do you operate your own house budget the same way?

    Senate passes budget with $1 trillion tax hike - NBC Politics

    The previous budget Obama submitted couldn't even muster one vote from his own party.

    Your candidate Romney said he wanted to close loopholes on the wealthy but when Dems actually do it, you scream. LOL If we are so broke how come we don't need that extra trillion, the wealthy sure don't. They have amassed 40 trillion in assets, a trillion is a drop in the bucket. But I guess we don't need the money THAT bad.

    So the democrats were elected to ignore the people, and better yet, force them into commerce. Somehow I doubt it.

    What part of that don't you get?
    The part where the people elect representatives so that they can have someone to tell them to go **** themselves.

    The country could have handed the other side a majority and the executive in order to do away with it, but they didn't. So, no, you don't get to use catastrophe to get your way. If the country had wanted a change in policy that desperately, you would have the votes you need. The threat of catastrophe should lose you votes, and it will.
    Yeah, except the republicans can't help but to nominate Romney of all people. ****!

    Pretty big allegations, you got some links for that?

    Actually he has taken back that comment so by your measure the AHC act is a sure fire winner. Baucus is the all knowing one.

    Keeping the country from paying its debts (like, people's salaries) destabilizes and weakens the nation. It hurts the economy. It puts people out of work. It hurts the working classes. If one party wants to hurt the country for their own political gain... Well, that tells you where their loyalty really lies.

    So what you're saying is that people that are not liberals are against the things liberals find to be accomplishments. I wouldn't have guessed that.
