    They put it on blocks in 2008, so what’s new Jim?

    Anyone can do nothing. It takes something special to work towards default. The fact that the House actually took the time to decide who would get what priority for payment in case of default is reprehensible enough, but priority was determined to go to foreign governments before VA benefits and debts to US citizens or corporations. If they would spend half that time trying to save us from default, their approval rating may shoot up into positive single numbers.

    Thank the GOP for driving us to a third world economy.

    While it is easy to poke the Republicans, it needs to be noted that nearly every tool the Rs have used was first introduced and used by Ds. The Rs just use these tools better.
    The country is going no where fast, and Congress’s greatest success is its ability to divide neighbors and weaken our infrastructure as warned by Geo. Washington.

    Better? If one person introduces a hammer to pound nails, and another person grabs it and uses it to break windows and knock holes in walls, is that using it better?

    It’s amazing that nobody but me remembers the Democrats doing EXACTLY the same thing to W. Nothing gets done because they just want the other party to look bad. All this whining is so very hypocritical because from 2000 to 2008 that’s all the Democrats did. So, go ahead and whine; or you can come down off your ego-mountain and think about the good of the country and not your particular state or party. What a concept.

    Thanks, Turtle-Boy! DITCH MITCH 2014!

    Although…if "Con"gress isn’t actually doing anything, they can’t figure out more creative ways of screwing the average American Taxpayer!

    Compare the numbers.
    The GOP filibustered Hagel – the first time a Secretary nominee was filibustered. McConnell even admitted they should not have been blocking Cordray for all this time.

    And the Dems didn’t come out and state that stopping W from getting a second term was their number one goal as one of the GOP “leaders” did. .

    There is plenty to fix about the Dems as well, but the false equivalency has to stop.

    I find myself agreeing with Mastereskrain – I actually think a do nothing government is to my advantage. Every time they accomplish something it is to benefit some group at the expense of the average person. Read here: Americans with Disabilities Act, Title 9, etc.

    The House Republicans are doing exactly what their constituents sent them to congress to do. Supporting conservative approaches to problems. Democrats would do the same thing if the table were reversed.

    I have to ask all of you that say Obama never got a fair chance – How did Clinton Reagan get so much done with a hostile congress? It’s a rhetorical question because we all know that both Presidents did what Obama won’t. They reached out to the other side and compromised. They found a way for both sides to win. Obama thought he got elected King and would be able to dictate his wishes. And if his latest announcement in Galesburg is any indication of his leandings I don’t think he has changed his opinion of his Regency at all.

    He will always be a failure as long as he refuses to compromise.

    BTW for those of you who think he has already compromised too much (as the press would have you believe) – He has queered every deal he has tried to strike with the Republicans. He did this to himself.

    Obama said all the problems are in Washington! Can we send them all home (including HIM) and start all over with a new crew?

    Wrong question.


    Right question, ‘If one person introduces a hammer to break windows and knock holes in walls, and another person grabs it and uses it to break windows and knock holes in walls, is that using it better?’

    A pity we don’t pay them based on performance. We’d save LOADS of money.

    True, to an extent, with one eye on the future just 2 years away and the tea party a-brewing.
    Election campaign reform
    Campaign finance reform
    Two musts..
    The House members should run for four year terms, NOT just two..
