House Speaker John Boehner has handed the reins over to an extreme group of Republicans who are willing to sabotage the economy over Obamacare -- and they just got to push their plan through.

With people like them as a part of those who run our government perhaps it's time to shut the government down. Then the people can start a new with all new reps. from each state etc. and see to it that those within the deep pockets of Corporates pay for their treasonous acts against the populous, with their constant showing of favor and special interest in their corporate 'donors' [bosses] over that of the good and betterment of the nation and ALL of it's people. So hell yes.. , shut the sucker down and clean house while these idots are powerless,so to say.

While the GOPTP praises our Constitution....they just don't want to obey it. The Supreme COurt has said it was Constitutional and the House wants to break the law cause they don't agree with it ?
I've heard everything now.... Anyone with half a brain knows just whose side the GOP is on and it's on the side of insurance companies. No Obamacare and the insurance companies come out the sole winners once again and won't have to spend 80% of our premiums on healthcare.
Yet congress rejoiced when their socialized---subsidized healthcare benefits package was funded. ANyone who votes republican and isn't rich is stupid.

Obama, as a senator voted AGAINST RAISING THE DEBT CEILING under George W. Bush:

In 2006, then-Sen. Barack Obama gave a floor speech defending his decision to vote against an increase in the debt ceiling under President George W. Bush.

In it, he decries the soaring national debt, using language that would inspire a Republican this year.

In 2006, Republicans were on the other side of the debate, adamant about raising the debt ceiling under Bush. For instance, right after Obama's floor speech, Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley gave a speech urging his fellow senators to raise the debt ceiling.

Here are some of the key parts of Obama's speech:

Mr. OBAMA: Mr. President, I rise today to talk about America’s debt problem. The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies.

[...]
Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘‘the buck stops here.’’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.

In the midst of the first debt-ceiling standoff in 2011, Obama was asked about his flip by ABC's George Stephanopoulos. He chalked it up as a "political vote" and said his mindset changed as President.

"That was just an example of a new senator making what is a political vote as opposed to doing what was important for the country," Obama said then. "And I'm the first one to acknowledge it."

It's never good to have "selective memory" when going after the republicans when Obama, himself, voted against raising the debt ceiling. Republicans are asking for necessary spending cuts...put them on the line.....and get rid of the massive waste in Washington, DC.

How anyone can be against cutting waste in our government knowing it exists and must be done is remarkable.

With his caucus out of control, Bonehead is doing all he can to appear that everything and everyone in the GOP are marching in lockstep when in reality it's like trying to herd cats. Who does he think he's fooling? Only those republicans who can't see the forest for the trees and are dumbed down enough to support politicians who do not have their best interest at heart will march like lemmings off the cliff. The only waste the GOP acknowledges is against the poor or disabled and women and children. Fund more wars, you betcha! Fund more pork in their bills, right on! Whore themselves out to their corporate masters, sure!

Carlene, you've made a statement that cannot be supported by any documentation that the republicans want to cut funding to the poor, disabled, women and children. That was a broad statement and is not, in any way, true. What our government SHOULD be doing is cleaning up the $60 billion a year in fraud and abuse so that we can fund the poor and disabled with cost of living raises to get them to the level where they can live above poverty so that they can eventually support themselves. The disabled will always need our help but when, the taxpayers, keep funding $60 billion a year to those who are bilking us through fraud we need to stand down and be silent because we aren't doing anything about cutting those who are breaking the law out of the mix. We have the funds to help but for political reasons translated into "votes" no one wants to tackle the big elephant in the room. The taxpayers keep funding $60 billion a year.....year after year....until that is fixed the poor and disabled will continue to be underpaid and unable to stay afloat.

Our country has problems. Serious problems.

While they may not want to see "the big elephant in the room," the cuts to SNAP will allow the innocent people, the majority on the program, to go hungry, this includes disbled, seniors, children. There has been no provision to deal with all of the frad you say the program is rife with.

Your GOPTP really don't care about the fraud, they just want the money saved to go to the military crooks, to the MegaCorps in the way of subsidies, and tax breaks for political groups masquerading as nonprofits.

You cite Obama and his hypocrisy...How many others are you ignoring that have done or are still doing the same thing today??

Farm bill passes narrowly in House, without food stamp funding
By Ed O’Keefe, July 11, 2013

"House Republicans narrowly passed a farm bill on Thursday that was stripped of hundreds of billions in funding for food stamps, abandoning four decades of precedent to gain the backing of conservative lawmakers.

The 216 to 208 vote was a victory for a Republican caucus that has struggled to pass the most basic of legislation, but it also set up weeks of acrimony and uncertainty as House and Senate leaders must reconcile two vastly different visions for providing subsidies to farmers and feeding the hungry...."
.........................
Another article, also featured in the Washington Post, attempts to explains why Republicans stripped funding for food stamps, yet passed what proved to be a generous farm bill:

The U.S. has few farmers. So why does Congress love farm subsidies?

By Brad Plumer, Published: July 12, 2013

This week, House Republicans passed a rather unusual farm bill. There was no money for food stamps for the poor, a program that typically makes up the bulk of these bills. But the House did manage to pass billions in subsidies for farmers and agribusinesses.

Ideology probably can't explain this vote — at least not entirely. Most outside conservative groups were aghast at the crop insurance and commodity supports, which will cost taxpayers some $195 billion over 10 years. Yet House Republicans actually made the farm aid more generous — by adding a new shallow loss income entitlement program, tossing in new protections for sugar production and ensuring that price supports for crops don't sunset in 2018.

This raises a question: Why are lawmakers so willing to vote for farm subsidies — even lawmakers who usually oppose government spending? After all, only a small fraction of the U.S. population even farms anymore.

One theory is that money explains it all. Wealthy agribusinesses are somehow paying off Republicans to vote their way. “Republicans demonstrated that they are just fine with bloated welfare programs as long as those welfare payments go to well-heeled special interests," wrote Michael Tanner of Cato. Over at the Atlantic, Derek Thompson proffered a similar theory, citing research showing that lawmakers are more likely to favor the rich."
...............................
Is the distribution of farm subsidies fair? Consider this, from the CATO Institute:

Although policymakers love to discuss the plight of the small farmer, the bulk of federal farm subsidies goes to the largest farms. For example, the largest 10 percent of recipients have received 72 percent of all subsidy payments in recent years. Numerous large corporations and even some wealthy celebrities receive farm subsidies because they are the owners of farmland. It is landowners, not tenant farmers or farm workers, who benefit from subsidies. And one does not even have to be the owner of farmland to receive subsidies: Since 2000 the USDA has paid $1.3 billion in farm subsidies to people who own land that is no longer used for farming.

See more at: http://www.downsizinggovernment.org/agriculture/subsidies#sthash.xWMgkqxH.dpuf
I recommend it. It's a very interesting read.
.........................
I'm not making a statement against farm subsidies --although abuse of that program runs rampant. I'm making a case for the SNAP program, which some people seem to think is nothing more than a hand-out for freeloaders.

Consider this from Bloomberg.com:

"Representative Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, a critic of federal spending, received between $5,000 and $15,000 in income last year from a family farm that has received more than $250,000 in federal subsidies, according to her most recent House financial-disclosure form."
..................
Need I say more? The GREEDY don't seem to think twice about depriving a hungry child of a nourishing meal. And if anyone thinks that food stamp recipients are the only people who sometimes take advantage of an open hand, I would suggest that those individuals read the article referenced above from the CATO Institute. The program that subsidizes farms has some major issues with fraud. So whose side do you take? The wealthy trying to get even wealthier, or the hungry trying to feed their children?

My apologies for the length of this comment.

****** First post disappeared into the ethernet ******

@ Diane O --- From your post [Obama said] "...America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit. ..."

Talk about selective memory Diane and taking things out of context! You win on those counts. Those comments were made in 2006 during the Iraq War. Baby Bush and his neocon buddies,in an illegal act of aggression, attacked the sovereign nation under the guise of WMDs, all for OIL. Please don't start with your rewrite of history by saying that the WMDs turned up in Syria because Baby Bush et al did not know that at the time and they are not prophets or psychics. The country is still dealing with that war of aggression which was put on the national credit card without any concern of budgeting. And please don't forget, like Republicanus/Teabagger Congress critters seem to have forgotten, more likely ignored, is that the deficit has actually come down significantly as verified by the CBO (an independent body).

"... cannot be supported by any documentation that the republicans want to cut funding to the poor, disabled, women and children. That was a broad statement and is not, in any way, true. What our government SHOULD be doing is cleaning up the $60 billion a year in fraud and abuse so that we can fund the poor and disabled with cost of living raises to get them to the level where they can live above poverty so that they can eventually support themselves..."

The documentation you seem to have forgotten is the Farm Bill which just passed the House. The Republicanus/Teabaggers have stripped $4 billion per year for 10 years from the SNAP programme which leaves the most vulnerable citizens --- children, elderly, disabled, and working poor families --- at risk. With the low minimum wage and active anti union stance by many Republican/Teabagger state governments, and the depressed economy courtesy of the banksters who initiated the great recession with their greedy policies, getting ahead, or at least getting their heads above water is almost impossible. But the GOP still managed to leave in exorbitant subsidies for farmers. The trouble is, it is not the little farmers that will benefit from the subsidies, but rather the wealthy ones like Congress critter Stephen Fincher (subsidies to he, his father and brother total in the millions upon millions over the past 10 years) and his family, as well as big ag.

As GGma Sheila D says "...the cuts to SNAP will allow the innocent people, the majority on the program, to go hungry, this includes disbled, seniors, children. There has been no provision to deal with all of the frad you say the program is rife with. " This is one time when the mantra "no pain, no gain" does not apply, at least not to the most vulnerable.

And the $60 billion per year in fraud and abuse --- I agree that fraud and abuse need to be cleaned up, but not at the expense of children, elderly, disabled and the working poor. Let's start with the Republicanus/Teabagger Congress critters who at minimum $174,000 per year, are receiving payment for doing nothing but wage an ideological war of obstruction, even if they do what Bill Maher calls a "one-hatey" from their previously stated positions. That would save well over $40 million per year. Then we have all the voter suppression and election fraud perpetrated by the Republicanus/Teabaggers, not to mention voter fraud by the likes of Ann Coulter. The court costs in these Republicanus/Teabagger machinations, including those for the gerrymandering of districts (mostly by the GOP), are enough to fund a small country.

Diane, you really need to lay off the Faux News (Fox) and the Republicanus/Teabagger talking points and start thinking logically and for yourself.

@ Diane O --- "...In Obama's own words just a few days ago...."not raising the debt ceiling to pay the bills that we have already incurred it wrong." You can't have it both ways.
By the way....those chemical weapons in Iraq have surfaced in Syria. Case closed."

There is a BIG difference between the bills that have already been incurred that have been appropriately authorised, and the bills of an illegal war of aggression put on the country's credit card. It is not 'having it both ways'. They are different. Even if, HYPOTHETICALLY we say they are the same, cannot Mr Obama change his stance on it? After all, you changed your stance as to whether Mr Obama was a Muslim in Atheists Start PAC to Elect Nonreligious CandidatesYou changed to say he was an atheist. Diane:
"Yes, I did imply that Obama was a Muslim but I've changed my mind recently. I believe he is more than likely an atheist. Just speculating here....."

As to your claims that " those chemical weapons in Iraq have surfaced in Syria", there is no substantive proof that they are one and the same. When will you stop using that hackneyed idea that Iraq's WMD were and are in Syria? They MIGHT be, but they might not. As Carrie says, where's the proof?

Diane, you really need to lay off the Faux News (Fox) and the Republicanus/Teabagger talking points and start thinking logically and for yourself.

"Senator" Obama may have voted against raising the debt ceiling in 2006, but he had also voted against the war in Iraq, which put our country into considerable debt. His actions made perfect sense. Two unwinnable wars --one of them sold to the American people with lies-- were major factors for getting us into this financial mess.

As far as the chemical weapons are concerned, Syria did not need to purchase them from Iraq. I've responded to Diane in the past about her allegations with the following information from Wikipedia:

"Western non-governmental organizations have stated they believe Syria has an active chemical weapons program.[13][14][15][16] The U.S. has stated that Syria "has had a chemical warfare program since the mid-1980s", In 1988, a U.S. analyst described Syria's chemical weapon capability as more advanced than that of Iraq; however, Israel stated in 1989 that Syria had only the "potential for chemical warfare, but not more than that".[12] In September 2013, French intelligence stated that Syria uses a "binary form" technique which demonstrates that Syria has acquired "great knowledge" of chemical weapon technology.[17]

Syria reportedly[according to whom?] manufactures chemical weapons agents, including mustard blistering agents, and deadly nerve agents like Sarin, Tabun and VX. A 2007 assessment indicated that Syria is capable of producing several hundred tons of chemical weapon agents per year.[18] Syria is believed to have a stockpile of hundreds of tonnes of chemical weapons agents.[19][20] Syria is believed to be able to deliver chemical weapons by aerial bombs, surface-to-surface missiles[12][20] and artillery rockets.[20]

According to French intelligence, the Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Center (SSRC) is responsible for producing toxic agents for use in war. A group named "Branch 450" is allegedly responsible for filling munitions with chemicals and maintaining security of the chemical agent stockpiles.[17] As of September 2013, French intelligence puts the Syrian stockpile at 1,000 tonnes, including Yperite, VX and "several hundred tonnes of sarin".[17] Sarin and VX are partly stocked in a binary form of two chemical products called precursors."
........................
Why in the world would Syria be purchasing chemical weapons from Iraq when they've been manufacturing their own since the mid-1980's and, as mentioned above, had more advanced technologies than Iraq? You haven't offered any valid proof, Diane. The case isn't "closed" just because you say it is. Your "reality" isn't based on facts. It's based on anything you can dream up that will discredit our current administration.

Thanks Jason R but she is busy on another thread but I did take the liberty to pass on some of your comment..namely: "Do we have another..." my question to her was "do you read with your mouth" will let you know any response.
