Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

Longest private sector job growth ever in U.S. history. Record stock prices and gas almost free. If Bush was president the right wing nuts would be flag waving daily. Not only that but the holier than thou Chrislicans are still able discriminate against the gay minority. "The United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama Bin Laden." Where is your flag.

frem..Why are "conservatives" raising taxes again like Engler raised sales tax by 50% and cigarette taxes too plus fees he didn't call taxes. Bill Speer should complain about Snyder and his republican buddies more than doubling gas tax too. Imagine the screams if Obama did that.

Oh look, even stupid Jaxsap has no response.

I would put quotation marks around the stupid, but I've been calling him stupid for years.

Now that his own side calls him stupid, him don't know what to say, neither does NormanStupid, HackvilleStupid, or AmosStupid.

How about Duh? Can you at least say that?

His total payments (known so far) from state and Fed Govs: 5.9 million.

That's one highly paid liar.

President just announced that he, (Gruber), did not work on the staff.

One lie after another. Good grief.

When an employee goes from working 40 hours per week to 28 hours a week, who does that hurt? Gruber? He made 2 million dollars consulting for Obooboocare/O'Grubercare and thinks you're stupid...another word for useful idiot.

How many Republican votes did O'Grubercare get? Zero.

How many middle class people were helped by increasing premiums, deductibles, diminishing choices, taxes, and fines?

Again, zero.

The Michigan republican senate voted to increase gas tax from 19 cents a gallon to 41 cents a gallon. The rich won't notice. This is just another republican tax increase many of which they want to call fees like hunting licenses. Republican tax increases always hurt the middle class and the poor.

freem..You forgot to say why over 90% of blacks vote against republicans if they like republicans so much for voter suppression and racism. No, David Duke was not a democrat. I'm waiting for you to claim it's all black people under them pointy white hoods.

I am so tired of arguing with people who refuse to see what's right before them.

The only thing jaxspp could "educate" me on is how to believe everything I'm told by Uncle Sam, (as long as he's wearing a blue tie).

Just stop already.

Go figure,,, Opponents of the ACA were right.

I don't think the democrats could tell the truth if their lives depended on it. There is now NO credibility from that side of the aisle.

Wait for the spin.... This ought to be good.

Hey jax, the point is that the administration and Harry Reid are accusing the house republicans of being obstructionists when the facts reflect the norm. The Washington Post did a fact check on both arguments. Dems block and Repubs block. Look at the history.

So, it's not the blocking, it's the lying to the American people. Aren't you tired of being lied to? Treated like a peon? Being called stupid behind closed doors or at "academic gatherings"? Yep, stupid, that's what the administration thinks of you jaxspp.

And those of us who knew better were called racists.

Trying to obstruct a commie is admirable, indeed, paramount to a constitutional republic.

Instead though, Reid obstructed the House, and Democrats crammed Obamacare down America's throat by lying to them repeatedly about every aspect of it.

Now the "architect" of it, Gruber has been caught on tape calling the American people "stupid" three times, and calling those lies, pre-planned.

Those who voted for Obama were indeed stupid. Those who voted for him twice, borderline insane.

“There are enough of us to block the Democratic agenda as long as we walk in lockstep. As long as Republicans refuse to follow [Obama's] lead, Americans will see partisan food fights and conclude Obama failed to produce change.” - Mitch McConnell, speaking to a Republican retreat at the Library of Congress following Obama's inauguration. Get off it, Freeman, obstruction and blame were the pubbie strategy from the get-go...

The GOP thinks black people can get ID's. Democrats don't think they can do much of anything. They are wrong. They can do anything anyone else can do.

Dan Sullivan defeats Mark Begich, bringing GOP Senate victories so far to + 8.

When Landrieu loses, it will be + 9.

Ya reckon Reid will bring up Keystone now to help her?

ID's would help us more clearly see voter fraud. Approx. 4.5% of illegal aliens voted in 2008, due in large part to motor voter. The Democrats have been striving to make sure, you "can't see it".

Re-reading Free's posts, I educated him also on the bills sitting in the Senate. To add further, there are 46 bills that the GOP calls "jobs" bills that under analysis will created virtually no jobs. The GOP House has wasted taxpayer time and money, but now they have to send this garbage over to a GOP Senate. Let's see the votes.

Free, I give you the RS challenge. Cite one election decided by voter fraud. For a problem to exist, you have to be able to see it, not assume it's there. And once again, there is a reason judges are overturning these laws.

"...The list also contains five concurrent resolutions, which are nonbinding and do not go to the president, and two bills (HR 4250 and HR 5161) that had Senate-approved versions waiting for action in the House.

We spent way too much time poring through the list, but the examples above add up to 84 bills and resolutions that either shouldn’t be on the list or would have little or no impact on the course of the nation."

What are the 300 bills? Again, more education for RS: "Blackburn’s office referred us to a list of 387 bills on House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s website. There are indeed 387 bills and resolutions on the list, but it is safe to say that that number is inflated.

The list contains dozens of ceremonial or parochial bills — including 31 bills to name or rename post offices or federal buildings, at least nine bills to authorize a study, such as whether Mill Springs Battlefield in Kentucky should be included in the National Park System, and at least 13 that deal with federal land (transferring or exchanging, or expanding boundaries, for example). There are also two bills to strike commemorative coins, and a third to award a gold medal to golfer Jack Nicklaus.

We also found 21 bills that actually became law through other vehicles, including 10 appropriations bills that became part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2014....

"... more than 300 bills were waiting for Senate action by the time the Congress completed its work. " RS also leaves out that there are 70 bills passed by the Senate stuck in the House. The number would be higher except for the record number of obstruction filibusters by Republicans.

RS is living bumper sticker. He mentions the 380 bills in the senate, but as per usual, leaves out the facts. Once again it is up to me to educate him: WaPo:The argument is often used to rebut claims that this is a "do-nothing" Congress, or, particularly recently, to counter Obama's insistence that he must act because Congress won't. And the thing is: Those Republicans are right. There are over 300 bills waiting for Senate action. But the other thing is: That's pretty much how things have always been.

We used data from GovTrack to assess the number of bills passed by the House that never saw action in the Senate. The site, which compiles data on legislation stretching back for decades, flags each bill by its current status. For hundreds of bills from each of the past 20 Congresses, the current status is what it was when the Congress adjourned: waiting for Senate consideration that will never come.

In 11 of the past 19 Congresses...
