Bob L. - I am wondering whose wealth and prosperity is being destroyed by SNAP and unemployment benefits? Who is the target of this cruelty? No paint is needed; just look at the record.

Mr. Bukoff - perhpas you haven't heard: Paul Ryan's healthcare plan will be revealed in 2014, (or not)! You can't help but wonder where the country might be today if all of the futile energy expended on attmepts to repeal the ACA was directed toward actual governing or even offering an alternative. Clearly, it is evident what and who is detested.

wmarincic - Interesting link. Seems that in 2007 "CGI was one of 16 vendors to qualify under the Bush administration to provide certain tech services for the government. This meant the company could be assigned government contracts worth up to $17 billion until 2017 without having to bid publically for them."

Talk about talking points!!!!!! When are you guys going to come up with solutions? Instead of bashing and lying about the current administration, tell us what you will do to make our lives better!!! I guess the gerrymandering better be good so that you can actually win an election and do things your way - if you can ever figure out what that is.

wmarincic - I didn't think you could answer the simple question: What will make you happy? You just keep knocking things with nothing to replace or make better. This is not a game. It is the future of this great country.

Phils2008, you ask ChuckD “What will make you really happy?” I can’t help but wonder what will make you and your fellow writers happy? You seem to know exactly what us liberals want, so let me give a try at what you and wmarincic would like for this country.

First, let’s eliminate all government subsidized healthcare: Medicare and Medicaid. Planned Parenthood will also be a thing of the past. After all, we have the greatest health care system in the world! Those that can afford it will still have it.

Next let’s privatize that pesky Social Security. It should be quite easy for those making minimum wage to save a considerable chunk of change from each of their two part time jobs to be able to afford to retire at age 75 or so. Of course, this doesn’t help the unemployed.

Oh, let’s not forget public education. Not sure how this might work. If you do away with public schools and give families vouchers, isn’t that still government intervention in what should be the family’s responsibility. Perhaps if we just home school all kids, we can instill ALL of our own values. Plus, I am sure we could get some used books from the 1950s since that was socially a much better time.

I haven’t even mentioned how great it would be to eradicate SNAP.

So, looks like we are looking at a mass of uneducated, unhealthy, unemployed hungry Americans. Perhaps we can construct some camps for them, but that would cost the Government and we would still have to feed them. Or not. So, what would we do them?

Yes, Mr. Glindmyer, “no one person can dictate their power over us”, however, it sure seems that 40 or so tea party Congressmen and Senators, (who don’t believe in these “checks and balances” established by our Constitution), can. This tiny group, with the support of Speaker Boehner, held the entire country hostage trying to circumvent the Constitution’s “checks and balances” and force the end of a law that was passed by Congress, signed by the President and deemed Constitutional by the Supreme Court. We hear shouts from tea partiers to get back to the Constitution as written by the Founders. The involvement of the Legislative, Executive and Judicial branches are the “checks and balances” established by the Constitution. Have they read it?

The total human and economic cost of their grand standing has yet to be determined, but at least $24 billion had been added to our National Debt. Perhaps if they thought that Constitutional remedies such as winning elections and legally repealing the Affordable Care Act by a majority in Congress and signed by a tea party President was possible, they wouldn’t have to take Our Country to the brink every couple of months.

Mr. Wells - I am not too sure how the 17th Amendment, which gives the PEOPLE the right to elect their Senators in a Government of the PEOPLE, by the PEOPLE and for the PEOPLE, moved toward “a dictatorial central government that has taken control over this nation”. We are seeing just how the state governments in many states today are protecting the rights of the PEOPLE by supressing the votes. I do, however agree, that many Senators do not pay attention to the "wants and desires" of their constituents.
