House Republicans in danger of destroying party and economy The Republicans in the House of Representatives are in the process of destroying the Republican brand as a competitive national party. They have foolishly shut down the government and threaten not to raise the debt ceiling, causing a default in the payment of the nation’s obligations. The consequences of actually carrying out that threat has been described as creating an economic apocalypse for the American and ...

Hey Howard, stupidity is not understanding what the ACA is doing to people. Stupidity is voting on a bill that was never read by anyone. Stupidity is is not understanding that we only default if Democrats decide not to pay the debt. Liberals throw around the fear of default because they don't want to decide not to pay for one handout over another. Stupidity is not recognizing that Republicans will fund all of Government except the ACA and the Democrats have shut the Government down to protest. Stupidity is not understanding that the Republicans taking a stand are being responsible to the people that put them in office. Stupidity is not understanding that your handout will end under Democrats when we're broke. Stupidity is voting for the same fiscally irresponsible dim bulbs that cause you to lose your health plan, lose your doctor, lose your job, lose working hours and finally your Constitutional Freedoms. Thats what Political Stupidity is.

Wow! phils2008 you have gotten the definition of stupidity right out of the limbaugh/hannity dictionary! What is the ACA doing to people that you feel is so wrong?

jansjoy, what could I say to a lemming that has blinders on. Your Union comrades don't want it. Congress doesn't want it and 60% of the American public doesn't want it. Why is that janesjoy? Is it because they all know they will lose their current insurance and most likely the doctors they've had for years? Is it because they resent the Gov forcing them to make a purchase? Is it because many have been placed on part time status or had their part time hours reduced? Maybe its because hiring will be cut and fewer will get jobs. Could it be because you're stepping on the rights of the religious and forcing them to make purchases contrary to their fundamental beliefs? Is it because some liberal gov official will decide what your health care will be? What Republicans don't realize is that no matter what they do now, you have destroyed the American health care system for good. Obama and the Libs delayed this destruction until after the elections for a reason, unfortunately you and the other liberal voters are simply clueless.

Right on Neil. Start by dumping Karen Johnson who is unbelievably running again after voting for a 6% Countywide tax increase just last year. Unfortunately she is doing to the County taxpayers what she did to the City taxpayers for 8 years as a failed Mayor.

Phils2008, as you say, the Democrats have shut down the govenment, in protest. Read a column by Thomas Sowell from 10/4/13 concisely stating the facts, if you get a chance. Boy, do I like that gol-danged Constitution of the United States! Also take a gander at a quote from Senator Obama in March 2006 re: the national debt. Illuminating, to say the least.

Jane, really? I'm sick of partisan politics, people in this country really hate others of different parties, this country has not been this divided since the civil war. The only thing that will stop the next civil war in the next 20 years is term limits. If you don't think the liberals know this and that is why the gun grab then you really do have your head in the sand. This year on 9/11 1.2 million Bikers rode into D.C. to counter the million muslim march. You did not hear about it on the news, but I bet you heard about the 60 jap bike riders that beat a guy up. Next year there will be more than 3 million bikers to D.C. I actually have friends from Arkansas and Colorado coming to stay with me so that we can do that ride. You better start paying attention to the real Americans and not Obama, Reid and Pelosi. The winds are changing and the real patriots are P**sed off.
