    Go figure... and they complained about Pelosi ! At least Pelosi was a Speaker that got her house in order, a much stronger and effective leader than Boehner.

    Boehner has squandered an entire week with this nonsense and he still doesn't have the votes

    Please remember that the elderly, people with disabilities and poor college students are in need of continued financial support. The wealthy are NOT in need.

  4. Republicans - The Not Intended To Be Factually Accurate" Party

    The GOP is incapable of working together with the rest of the country.

    Boehner is a failure as a leader among his own partisan group, There is NO way he speaks for the American people – heck he doesn`t even speak for the GOP.

    Independent voters – you can`t back the Republicans. The President was willing to give them EVERYTHING they wanted and they still said NO.

    A $4Trillion deal with a 3:1 ratio of expense cuts to increased revenue.

    I`m sorry, but the GOP manufactured this crisis. Throw the bums out!

    All you Republican have to do Is start to Compromise. That the only why you are going to get both Party to agree on something Is thought Compromise.

    Wake up people! We don't have enough Republicans in Washington now to make a big difference. We have to take baby steps (in the right direction) until 2012 when we can gain more seats and then make all the BIG changes we need. Don't let the hungry PIG Dems outsmart us, follow Boehner's lead and VOTE 2012 and get the Dems out

    That's gotta hurt, don't it Johnny Boy? What? You gonna cry little girl? Want a whine-e-kin? How about a burger and french cries? LOL. Momma always said, "God don't like ugly!" Now, pull yourself together and work a bipartisan deal with the House Democrats that will pass the senate and get signed. In case you need help, that's either a clean bill or one with cuts and revenue. You've done enough damage to yourself and the republican party to last a few years. Move on...
