    The G-nO-P will lose from this kerfuffle - big-time, but don't take my word for this, wait and see, the fractures in the GOP are showing up right now.

    The Tea Party faction of the GOP will pay a heavy price for its attempt to sink the Affordable Care Act.

    It's not for the mules in the press to sell lies and attempt to hold the House hostage to their demands just because they want something. Not how it works.
    This Country is facing very real and very bad financial problems because DC can't seem to comprehend that a $17 trillion debt will cause destruction, eventually, and also that taking people's hard-earned money to give away to those who don't work, will make those people poor, eventually. If the economy is improving, as the MSM and the administration are telling us, why are the record foodstamp numbers increasing? Companies downsizing to 29 employees to avoid the costs of Obamacare is sure to swell those numbers even more, because families do need to eat!

    Thats what happens when you let teabaggers take over your party....the GOP is completely delusional if they think there is any good outcome for them here.

    Please remember that a lot of the losers in the GOP still have not accepted the fact that they got their backsides handed to them last November.

    They will all have to be dragged, kicking and screaming, out of Washington, D. C. in about thirty years when the GOP is reduced to a minor, regional party by the massive demographic change which is coming at the GOP like a tidal wave right now.

    Needless to say, I won't be shedding any tears for those losers when that happens.

    But I might throw a little party.

    I think it will be much sooner than 30 years....especially with this horrible backfiring stunt.

    This poll seems like it's a poll to declare loyalty to a political party and nothing else.

    I agree,when I say thirty years I'm giving them some slack. I also doubt that the GOP will last that long.

    That is your opinion,which you are entitled to, but I will ignore.

    If you think that you have a better poll, put it out there, if it's worthwhile I might participate.

    No one forces anyone to participate in these polls, it's all up to you.

The funny thing is that they expected this "groundswell of public support" that simply didn't materialize. They must be getting their information from the same source that told that that Romney was going to comfortably win in a landslide......LOL.
    Well, I think the House is doing precisely what they should do.

    So there you go. It doesn't matter what lies and rhetoric you're trying to sell.
