    If Republicans take Congress, they will vote to cut jobs in their own districts

    So there is this wave of anti-Democrat, anti-spending at the same time as arguments that the Democrats have failed to promote jobs.

    Fair enough. Except that the party set to gain from those attacks are pushing "end the spending" and "more jobs." Fair enough. So will the GOP actually vote to cut spending when it costs jobs in their own districts causing unemployment to rise and thereby making them more unpopular then they already are?

    Of course they won't cut spending, it's a pipe dream to think they would.

    I think there is a flaw in the basic premise and in asking a question that contains an error of substance makes it into more of a push poll.

    The error as I see it is you say:
    Except that the party set to gain from those attacks are pushing "end the spending" and "more jobs."
    And yet I have never heard a single Candidate from any party use the term, "end the spending."

    If you add the adjective wasteful to the statement it reflects what I do heard all the time. "End the wasteful spending, or useless, spending, or irresponsible spending, because they all work and fit.

    I have said it over and over a hundred times, that if you end the wasteful spending and reduce taxes the jobs will come.

    Simple easy to understand and we know it takes both things for it to work.

    I think Tea Party representatives will vote against the spending they campaigned to cut, but as a whole, not enough for my tastes.

    Nice loaded question at the end, there.

    Republicans are just going to do the same **** the democrats have done and what they have done before, nor will they repeal Obama care. At most they will write a bill and load it will all kinds of pork and other BS so that it is doomed to fail, and then not anything about the subject again regardless of how many republicans get seats and if they get a republican president in 2012.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Except "Wasteful" is not defined.

    I have said it over and over a hundred times, that if you end the wasteful spending and reduce taxes the jobs will come.

    And what consititutes wasteful? It is wasteful to operate a base we don't need? Yes. But the GOP is fighting those cuts. It is wasteful to spend money for government workers to build space transporation vehicles when the private sector can do it better? Yes. And the GOP is fighting those cuts.

    Wasteful is a vague term.

    Just because you don't like it does not make it loaded. It's amusing that none of you will vote. Perhaps you realize that the GOP is lying about their intent to cut.
