    The right wingers “support for the troops” has always been lip service. That’s all

    When did “America shut down”?
    I haven’t noticed a thing.

    That’s funny. Conservatives were all up in arms over the 30 kids with cancer who aren’t getting their treatment, and the closed World War II memorial. The tourist town of Estes Park, damaged beyond belief by floods washing out their roads, now is being stabbed again by the closure of Rocky Mountain National Park. American scientists, already suffering from the stupid sequester, now can’t get any grants at all, the American president has to stay home from important international conferences to babysit the spluttering tantrum coming from absolute idiots in congress. And all this, just to prevent 30 million people from being able to buy their own health insurance on the private market.

    And the Cons still haven’t said what they’d replace the ACA with. Their mantra is “government bureaucrats”’ but it would STILL be insurance company bureaucrats, as it is now. My “exchange” is the FEHBP, which gives me a choice of plans, or I can opt out and go private. Just like the ACA, only without the penalty for not being insured. That’s the one part I have a problem with.

    Does it need to go tea potty?

    “I haven’t noticed a thing.”

    Evidently, not for many years.

    plus the tea party politicians are not donating or refusing their paychecks, because they need it even though many of them are millionaires. the same politicians now are saying defaulting on the debt is not a bad thing.

    ALL of them are millionaires.

    I’m sure you haven’t. I’m pretty sure all those government workers who are furloughed or are working without being payed until the shutdown is over might notice a slight difference.

    No, Motive, only 47%. (abc news)

    Better than the Left killing you with kindness… In a gulag of course!

    Reverse that and you might have something. 1/3 of the House R caucus could be classified “right wing extremists” and about 4 or 5 senators. On the left you’ve got … what? One socialist from VT.

    To make this more realistic, the elephant should have scars, cuts, and bruises all over his face and hands.

    Actually (and it makes me choke that I have anything in common with the US Chamber of Commerce) even the business extremists at the US C of C are calling on the Tea Party to chill. They know that you need some law and order to protect their profits.

    “Are you being sarcastic?”

    Actually, I didn’t follow the thread back far enough. 47% is the Congressional total of millionaires (abc news). Depending on where you look, The Tea Party Caucus has either 49 or 66 members. The Tea Party Caucus site lists either 52, 50, or 38 on their front page. house.gov lists 59. In disgust, I called Rep. Mick Mulvaney’s office (chair of the Congressional Tea Party Caucus), Dan Hanlon. There are 49 members. The L.A. Times lists 33 millionaires as of Jan 05, 2012; therefore, 67.3% are millionaires. In the same Times article they list the Tea Party opponents, the House Progressive Caucus, 73 members, as having 24 millionaires at 32%. There is a fault, though, in the old Times article. They list 60 Tea Party Caucus members. Either that or 11 members have quit for political reason (or in disgust).
