    All politicians should be permanently exiled to pacific atolls.

    …and the TP has been wanting that for the last few years. Be careful for what you ask for, however…

    Some years ago, the TP’s signed on to the notion that the government should be drowned in a bathtub. They’re making good progress, the traitors…

    The problem with politics is that we let all these politicians muck about in it.

    I’m sorry, Mr. Oliphant, but the true children are the Republicans that desired and designed a government shutdown as campaign promises in 2010. This is what they wanted. So, stop lumping the Democrats in with them. It’s insulting.

    The constitutional roots of America’s fiscal crisis
    This commentary gives both the historical and philosophical basis of our division of powers and makes a suggestion as to how we might get out of the present mess…although the author doesn’t hold out much hope that we will do what is necessary to remove this structural problem from our government.

    @ypoons7666

    We’ve got all the laws an’ regulations that we could possibly need for at least ten or twelve years…an’ think of all the money we will save!!

    So, you want Congress to abdicate in favor of the executive? That’s interesting…

    Whether you think any new legislation needs to be passed, Congress needs to agree on the budget. That’s their job.

    The GOP has had over three & a half years to negotiate changes in the ACA. Instead they’ve passed 40+ bills to repeal. Now that they have failed, they are taking the economy hostage.

    If the ACA is going to be the disaster they insist it will be, the GOP will triumph in the 2014 elections. They can override any Presidential veto to repeal Obamacare, authorize the Keystone pipeline, abolish the EPA… the sky’s the limit.

    What is the GOP afraid of?
