    They are at fault for giving in to Democrats.
    Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.

    Which makes Republicans at fault for overspending. Who cares what their excuse is?

    Just excuse making.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Former TEAparty darling Kinzinger now has a Teachallenge. This CD combined two sitting Repubs in 2012 primary. Kinzinger supported bombing Syria. Note that Kinzinger has former top staffers for Speaker Hastert.

Something needs to be done with healthcare and while Obamacare isn't perfect it's a start and maybe we should give it a try and if it doesn't work, then fix it.
    The problem with Obamacare is that once you give a program of this size a "start", fixing it or taking it back is almost impossible to do, because people become dependent upon it, even if it bankrupts the country in the process.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Why would it bankrupt the country? Doesn't Obamacare simply require people to pay for their own insurance, providing an exchange market for them to find the best deals and expands medicare for only a very select few?

    There. I fixed it. Republicans are perfectly willing to fund the government. It is the Dems who are throwing a tantrum and holding the nation hostage until they get their new pet entitlement funded. Have you ever seen the movie Blazing Saddles? In particular the part where Cleavon Little's character, faced with an unruly mob, places one forearm across his throat and with the other hand he holds a gun to his own temple; he then announces, "One wrong move and the nigger gets it!" and backs away to safety - just like the Dems are doing now.

    Agreed. ObamaCare is designed to fail, and the backup plan is to push for single payer - which means that all of us can look forward to the careless neglect that passes for health care on Indian reservations. Unless we have political connections, or enough money to go overseas for care...
