I realize that there are a lot of problems with democrats, I really do. I'm also a registered independent. Can't stand Reid, Pelosi but I think there's a disconnect and too much propaganda. I also think, I really believe this, that conservative is becoming a code name for Christian. Can you show me a conservative that isn't a Christian? Anyways..here's the problem.
Here is what voters rejected by voting out the democrats
65 straight months of economic growth
a record 56 months of private sector job growth
Unemployment falling from 10.1% to 5.9%
The Budget deficit reduced by two-thirds
Fewer Americans in harms way in war zones
Zero attacks by al Queda on US Soil
Record stock market growth
Under Republicans we got and maybe we can expect more of this....
two economic recessions
the worst financial collapse since the great depression
the worst terrorist attack in history
the two longest wars in us history
the worst record of job creation since Herbert Hoover
the complete collapse of the stock market
a budget surplus turned into a trillion dollar deficit.
Well played America!
What do the republicans tell us they're going to do?
build a pipeline, repeal Obama Care, Ban Gay Marriage, Quote the bible during environmental debates and...
On Thursday, incoming Senate Majority Leader and Kentucky Republican Mitch McConnell said that when it comes to serving his home state, his top priority is “to try to do whatever I can to get the EPA reined in.”
In his first one-on-one interview since his landslide re-election for a sixth term, McConnell told the Lexington Herald-Leader that he is convinced that coal has a future and that he feels a “deep responsibility” to stop the EPA from regulating carbon dioxide emissions at coal-burning power plants. He said he won a number of coal-producing counties for the first time this election, but that it was a “disappointment” that the state House didn’t go to the GOP on Tuesday night as it would have helped him in his crusade to block the Obama administration’s efforts to promote low carbon, clean energy.
As it stands, McConnell said the only good tool with which to stifle the EPA “is through the spending process, and if (President Barack Obama) feels strongly enough about it, he can veto the bill.”
What this means is that McConnell will have a hard time killing the EPA’s carbon pollution regulations without shutting down the government, a thing he has already pledged not to do.
McConnell, who recently used the “I’m not a scientist” line to avoid taking a stance on climate change, decided to focus on the future of coal rather than that of the climate.
The Supreme Court’s decision Friday to take up a challenge to Obamacare subsidies couldn’t come at a worse time: Republicans fresh off big election wins are vowing to dismantle the law while the White House is readying a second enrollment season that it needs to get off to a better start than last year’s disaster.
The case taken by the court, King v. Burwell, puts at risk the health law’s low- and middle-income subsidies for millions of Americans who live in states that did not set up their own health insurance exchanges.
The surprise decision sends the president’s health care law back to the Supreme Court for the third time in as many years. It creates an aura of uncertainty around the law just as the Obama administration prepares to unveil a revamped HealthCare.gov as open enrollment begins one week from Saturday.

Anyone is better than the American communist clown B.O.and his gang of criminal thugs who hate everything good about this nation.Hates the military,families, police, our way of life. Ever hear him say anything positive about this nation? Do anything to improve this nation? What a total loser. If we have total gridlock maybe we won't be sending aid to ISIS or sending aid to china. Move to Cuba you will feel at home with Castro care, you can make $20.00 a week and everything you need will be taken care of. You care repair your 55 Buick if you can scrounge up parts.

Oh yeah I predict if they are successful at shutting down ACA a massive retaliation for the three branches of govt will ensue ,the cons won't see day light for the next 15-20rys,
so yes go ahead and overreach, as a result the Progressives can introduce a new healthcare bill as a single payer option along with the right kind of people in place.

their one and only main agenda which was to undermine his presidency and circumnavigate and destroy the Constitution of the United States based upon 'we the people'
in order to establish their main objective which is to have rule by special economic interests based upon we the power of money first - the so called 'fat cats' rule - Some might see this as the 'fat pigs' rule just like in George Orwell's 'Animal Farm' [Orwell is even more famous for his book '1984' - must be a favorite of all you fascist right wingers][Forgive me for being presumptive in assuming you know how to read?]
And talk about this President who you call 'a total loser' who in spite of an opposing political party whose sole existence became based upon undermining his presidency still brought the United State out of a recession so bad it was beginning to resemble the depression of 1929 and won the presendency in spite of coming from a race of Americans who not too many years ago could not eat in the same restaurants or go to the same schools as the white elitists who thought these people were inferior to them - I wonder how much of this good old fashioned, good ol' boy racism is behind the hate some of you love the elitist right wingers have for this President
But 'PsychoCroMag' I want to thank you for giving me an idea for a new political movement to answer the so-called grass roots Tea Party [grass planted, owned, and watered by the billionaire Koch Brothers]; We will call this truly grass roots party the P-ss Party as we are more teed off than you are and all the Tea in Boston may have been owned by you but 'we the people' are the ones who will drink it.

The gutting of the safety net
The gutting of the right to choose
The gutting of Obamacare
The further ruination of the environment, the economy, human rights, civil rights, minority rights
A stronger supporting of Israel
Laws that will favor Banksters and Koch type billionaires
The complete death of unionism
the death of the minimum wage
The impeachment of Obama
Massive attack on woman rights and gay rights
The civil rights movement and affirmative action will be set back years
IF a GOP president gets in with these maniacs most assuredly you will have ten 911’s
WWIII a certainty and possibly the destruction of the world as we know it
All kinds of crazy anti-human bills that will set back the US and the world centuries
This will be a continuation of the second Bush as the third Bush will be just as bad
It’s so bad that the only one who can rescue the world from the madmen of the GOP is Hillary Clinton? The new Heroine…
Isn't that amazing
It shows the moral and spiritual depravity of our world...
