Would you mind calling them what they are ... TEA PARTY REPUBLICANS! (include the other Republicans in the lot since they aren't worth very much)
BTW, I heard on NPR today that this government shot down was planned by them, MONTHS ago ...
Balanced Budget? What a JOKE! You want a balanced budget?
Ask Bush why he started a war in Iraq WITHOUT raises taxes to pay for it?
Our national debt is JUST A NUMBER .... no matter how big it is, it doesn't matter!
America is the GREATEST and strongest country in the world, in spite of what the Republicans do!
MSNBC broadcasted tapes of some Tea Party members when they were running for office, showing them saying if elected they would shut the government down. It was planned and Boehner is part of it, he isn't the nice guy that got caught up in the insanity of some in the House, because he could bring a vote to the floor for a clean bill, but he won't do it. The only reason he won't allow a vote is obvious, it would pass.
Boehner is lying to the world, he claims negotiations over the debt ceiling is normal, anyone who has the ability to discern knows that is a lie. Now he has added that it just isn't Obamacare that needs to be defunded, he wants medicare and SS put on the table now also, and this is after the R. claimed it was P. Obama, not them that wanted to change the way SS cost of living adjustments were calculated, that is true but they had their finger prints on it aso...
These people are very dangerous and I can only hope the American electorate understands now that mid term elections are just as important as the quadrennial.
