Buh bye Frank. Don't let the door hit you on the way out. I think Mississippi or maybe Louisiana would suit your 18th century agenda.
If the president had agreed to negotiate with the hostage takers this time we would be doing this every couple of months. By calling their bluff he insured that they will think twice before they follow their lunatic fringe over the cliff again. He is to be commended for his resolute stance. BTW, in case the Republicans ever won the presidency again they would have been on the receiving end of the same tactic. The TEA Party extremists aren't smart enough to remember how badly the previous shutdown worked out for them but hopefully they have been taught a lesson that they won't soon forget.
If the had picked off the ACA this time they would have been going after Medicare in January and Social Security the next time until they had rolled back the entire New Deal which is what their corporate sponsors on Wall Street want.
The estimate from S&P is that this shutdown cost us $24 billion. How is that fiscally responsible? Anyone who believes that Republicans care about the deficit is just ignoring the facts. They are only using their feigned concern about the national debt to attack programs that they call "entitlements".
The only winner in this is Ted Cruz who now has a list of 2 million potential donors and has firmly established himself as the head of the wingnut faction of the Republican Party.
Ted Cruz threw the first sandwich in this food fight then ran out of the room. Now that it has turned nasty he's run off to raise his image at the right wing "Values" conference. This is nothing more than the beginning of the Iowa caucuses for him.
Talk is cheap, Senator McCain. How did you vote on the Senate bill to extend the debt ceiling today?
She obviously has a very tenuous grasp on reality and no knowledge of history at all. First of all Germany has had universal health well before and after Hitler; he had nothing to do with it. No, he did NOT enact any sort of gun control, that is an NRA lie.
Most egregiously, HITLER WAS NOT ELECTED BY THE MAJORITY OF THE GERMAN PEOPLE; he was appointed Chancelor by the president von Hindenburg in Jan. 1933, and the NAZI party never had over 40% of the vote even at their heyday. When v. Hindenburg died later that year he took over the office of president as well and changed his title to Führer.
As much as I believe in equal opportunity I don't think that people with an eighth grade education should be representing us in the State Legislature.
