    Yet it’s the Republican Party that has firmly seized the role of naysayer. Literally every ambitious proposal aimed at building toward the future is shot down and dismissed. Everything from high-speed rail to energy reform.

    It would never have been possible to build the Hoover Dam in this political climate.

    True, with the environmentalists uproar that would have occurred, most major projects would be doomed.

    and it is difficult to honestly paint only the republicans as naysayers when the Dems shut down the government by refusing to even talk about giving the same consideration to ordinary taxpayers as was given to unions and other corporations when it comes to Obamacare exemptions.

    of course, if you are a blind ideologue, it is probably easy.

    Too true. If it doesn’t give money back to the one percent, then Republicans want nothing for it. And it was a Democrat who started us towards the moon.

    Yah, thanks for reminding us that the Democrats in Congress only make minimum wage and receive no donations over 50 cents from orphan undocumented children.

    What ambitious project? You mean like the job killing obama care? Name a project that obama has tried to pass to help the economy that the Republicans have shot down? You are right though about the Hoover Dam not being built today. democrat “enviromentalist” would have gone to court and blocked it. Just as they did with the Auburn and several other dams in California. How’s that working for you California?

    It would help if all their projects weren’t stupid liberal crap.

    True, it was a democrat. One who wanted to cut capitol gains, give business tax breaks to spur economic growth and push to lower not raise income tax. Hated commuinist. If there were democrats today that actually followed Kennedy’s actions and not just used his name to try to get votes I might still be a member of that party. Oh by the way, he was a member of the 1%.

    When we started the Apollo program, the top tax rate was 91%. When we landed on the moon it was 70%.

    You get what you pay for.

    It always amazes me how Republicans hate Obamacare when the whole thing was basically a Republican idea that emanated from a prestigious Republican think tank. Only because Obama had the nerve to push it through you hate it. And oh yeah as for ambitious projects, try infrastructure, something that Republicans also use to favor, that was until this President agreed with it, now its not just no, but hell no on that and everything else.

    And that dam was built in just a few years.
    -
    Harry Reid has stopped the Senate from voting on 240 bills. So he has some complicity in this.

    Imagine, JFK the Libertarian Republican. And all those actions proved the opposite. Fewer jobs, larger deficits, weaker economy and allowed the few to gain more wealth and the rest of us lose it.

    The rest of us have been paying for it and still do now.

    I love how that fact that now that obamacare has proven to be a disastor all the libs are saying “it was a Republican idea”. Just because one Republican came up with a similar plan for a very small state you claim obamacare is a Republican plan? Besides unlike democrats just because a person from our party came up with an idea we are not going to blindly follow. I have no problem saying so when a Republican comes up with a stupid idea. Name a Republican who voted for obamacare? Even if Reagan was the originator of the idea this means we looked at it and said no. We read it and said no. No Republican said “you have to pass the bill to see what is in it”. Also what Romney passed is very differn’t in actual practice. To be honest I have no idea how it worked out or if the people like it as I do not live in that state but I do know that it didn’t cause millions of people to loose their existing health care and it did not force business to change their work force from full time to part time because they could not affored the cost.
