    I’m so tired of hearing about the tea party’ ! They have messed there tea all over tea and sent reason and reasonable talk and action out the door and reduced productivity to near nothing.

    And they thought Jimmy Carter drove us into a moribund morass.

    No, the Senate Tea Party does the filibusters. The House just gerrymanders to the point where the looneys get to be in charge.

    “Political Opinion”??
    First ScottPM said “Recall they didn’t exist until after passed Obamacare and his so called stimulus act.” which makes absolutely no sense AND is historically incorrect.(1) Then he added "That’s … after Obama passed ", which is factually WRONG. (2)

    (1)ScottPM doesn’t even know the history of the Tea Party. Their modern day origins go back to 2001, their first formal "statement of principles’ dates to April, 2009.
    (2)The President doesn’t pass any bills, that’s the function of Congress. The President signs them into law or vetoes them. This was covered in detail on Schoolhouse Rock’s ’I’m Just a Bill’.

    So I’d say King of Me is correct, ScottPM is still an idiot.

    Technically you can’t filibuster in the House (AFAIK) but I expect some fireworks to go off after 12pm on C-SPAN. Well, somehow fitting, since it’s the New Year :-) I’m a lefty and I could live with the compromise (HuffPo paints it as the end of the world though). I hope it passes and if I were religious I would pray that the GOP/TEA don’t risk another downgrade by playing with the debt ceiling. Remember: that’s not what you are allowed to borrow, that’s what you are prepared to pay back of the money you ALREADY HAVE borrowed. Hence the phrase “Full Faith and Credit of the United States”…

    You know what’s hilarious?

    Watching members of the so-called ’Party of Personal Responsibility blaming EVERYONE BUT THEMSELVES for the election loss in November

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again…
    It’s CONGRESS that votes on the laws, and debates them!
    The President only signs them, or vetoes them!
    We could put Bozo the Clown in the White House, like we did in 2000, and It would not make that much difference!
    IT’S CONGRESS we have to Worry about!
    Remember; “If ‘Pro’ and ‘Con’ are opposites, does that make ‘Congress’ the opposite of ‘Progress’?”
    And; “NO ONE’S Life, Liberty, or Property are safe while the legislature is in session!”
    CONGRESS are the people who can run us deeper and deeper into debt, raising taxes a little while spending a LOT more on wars, foreign aid, and even voting themselves a raise, while the average American is just scraping by.

    There HAS to be a fundamental shift in the mindset of Congress before there can be ANY real progress towards financial self-reliance in America again. The well is NOT infinitely deep. There IS A LIMIT to how much the country can spend before it goes BROKE!We HAVE to cut spending, and increase revenues or the result WILL be National Bankruptcy!Here is a start…a flat 10% across the board cut in ALL budgets for ALL departments of the Government for the next fiscal year, a flat 25% cut in ALL foreign aid, and a flat 25% cut in the pay for ALL Congressmen and women, Senators, the President, Vice President, ALL cabinet members, ALL Supreme Court Justices and federal judges, and ALL federal employees above a certain pay grade.Just so everyone knows it; I am NOT a Democrat, NOR a Republican! I am an INDEPENDENT voter!I’m NOT a “Lib”, or a “Con”! My opinion on certain issues is VERY Conservative, and on others is VERY Liberal, it depends on the issue.

    @Sharuniboy If the government goes bankrupt NOBODY will get ANY benefits. A little pain now is better then a LOT down the road…besides, no one will “cease” to get benefits, they will be reduced by 10%.YES, I KNOW a 10% cut will hurt some people, I am fully aware of that fact!BUT, we have to do SOMETHING!AND, by the way, I do NOT get any government benefits like unemployment, or Social Security, or whatever.We could always chop the Defense budget another 5 or 6 Billion a year, and add that money to Medicaid and Medicare, if that will help you sleep better at night.

    “Obama is the leader.
    The buck stops with him.
    But as always, he blames someone else. And low information voters believe him.”

    Really? Do you? I’d never have guessed.

    Mine too… and I think your suggestions are interesting — but they don’t fix the “Koch”-type baloney. Any ideas on that?

    @HOWGOZIT

    You ever see any of these articles…or have you he’s HEARD about them? ( Funny how you NEVER post links to any so-called ‘news source’ that you cite. )

    Anyway, I was talking about on this forum…and it’s been going on ever since the election.

    Sadly, until there is a total reversal of laws like the “Citizens United” ruling, and REAL Campaign Reform Passed, the chances of elimination of the forces of “Special Interests”,the “K Street Lobbys” and “Big Money” on the Legislative process are very remote!
    A prime example is the hold Grover Norquist has over the Republican party.
