And now in the dumbest post of all one of our esteemed posters thinks that the government shutdown is about the Republicans defending the constitution.
I can see why you're DS's favorite liberal. What drivel. The founding fathers were influenced by fear of the mob. That's why they designed the constitution the way they did. Whenever conservatives lose an election they immediately invoke the fact that we're a Republic. I guess because they think that gives them the right to subvert majority rule. Of course when they win as they sorta did with Bush we no longer hear about constitutional safeguards.
And in the dumbest statement of all one of our esteemed posters thinks that the attempted Republican coup means they're defending the constitution.
This is a trait many conservatives share. It is becoming apparent that the term conservative intellectual is an oxymoron.
The government number is right but the methodology leads them to under report unemployment.
You keep acting as though you're forced to buy this insurance. That only applies if you don't have insurance and want the subsidy. If you have insurance you'll keep on seeing your doctor. If you don't have insurance and don't want to go to the exchange then you can buy insurance on your own. The ONLY compulsory aspect is that you must have health insurance.
The programs that cost real money are Social security,medicare and medicaid. They all have majority support. You're in the minority so you support a coup.
The Southern Democrats are now the Tea Party. Engage in sophistry all you want it doesn't change anything.
Try to focus. You said Obama will get everything he wants. You were in error as usual. You have the right to wish for a bigger sequester. But if you want it to actually happen try winning an election instead of shutting down the government in a temper tantrum.
Will the sequester be restored?? Will a jobs bill get passed?? Everything he wants?? What a monumental clod you are. How long are going to just make stuff up??
It is truly amazing just how stupid you are. The constitution says NOTHING about legislators refusing to do their jobs Clyde. The Republicans like the brats they are shut the government down because they didn't get their way. And you because you are monumentally stupid cloak it in the constitution. You guys lost the election. Instead of abiding by the result you try to stage a coup and call it defending the constitution. You're the ones destroying it.
