<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> That brings us to the 112th Congress. House Republicans are adamant about refusing to compromise with the president, and are able in most instances to make good on the threat. When they are not able to maintain this unity, they are simply unwilling to bring up or pass measures that would lose significant GOP votes and require as many or more Democrats in support. This is a formula for gridlock, or worse. is the Republicans are simply declining to govern.

So it is nice to see you tell us that the worse Congress ever includes a Democratic stronghold in the Senate. We knew this already but it is good to see you admit it.

Didn't need to. I was perfectly happy in seeing your admittance to the piss poor effort/performance of the Dems.

Ha ha...

Republicans have the lowest polling numbers, by and large.

Just posted a whole page of headlines for you in the other thread, about how the public will blame, and does blame, the Republicans for this debt limit fiasco.

Not so far off, if properly understood.

Better real Republicans, please, God! The country will not long survive these fools, incompetents, and traitors.

We have self-serving careerists, who think nothing of the nation, when that should be their guiding principle, not their re-elections and avoiding a primary opponent from the far right, as financed by the apostles of Mammon.

With this kind of lunatic narrative becoming the norm of one major party, it's no wonder Congress is the worst ever

Stronghold, no. Majority, yes.
They might be able to pass some legislation if the GOP didn't FILIBUSTER every bill. 53 dems are not enough.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">I was glad to see someone finally push back at this Republican talking point I hear them repeat day after day, week after week -- Democrats never passed a budget and so that makes the horrid Ryan budget passed by the House somehow "responsible."

Sen. Dick Durbin finally shot that one down on Fox News Sunday this morning and explained why they never got anything passed -- 60 votes -- <u>or in other words, Republican filibusters and obstruction.</u>

BAIER: Senator Durbin, why haven't the Senate Democrats passed a budget?

DURBIN: <u>It's called 60 votes. And what it boils down to is this: we have 53 Democratic senators.</u> </div></div>

They had 60 at one point. They don't have that many any more because they were the worst Congress EVER as gayle pointed out. So the American public has tried something different and brought in a bunch of Tea Party candidates.

LMAO!

Your delusions du Jour?

Low voter turn out.

Corporate corruption.

Repiglican disenfranchise tactics on stroids.

The worst Congress was Bush's blank check Congress, now, we have a house of representatives, that is irrational, dictatorial and dumb as rocks.

Only you could think that a bunch of greenhorns, willing to throw the whole economy into shock, is a good thing.

Hey, DEFENSE CUTS!!!!

Rah Rah Rah!

We are far better off right now, than we were when we finally got rid of Bush.

The fact that you have never admitted to all of the multi-disastrous consequences of the Bush/Cheney/Repiglican/blank check majority era, doesn't mean it didn't happen.

It happened, alright, and we have been trying to recover ever since! We didn't have a deficit issue, until we had Bush/cheney insisting that deficits didn't matter, for eight damn years!

Most of our current deficit, is due to having too pay for all of the FAILED Bush/Cheney policies, of spending, and warring, cutting tasxes, and borrowing money, failing to pay for anything, and hiding the true costs.....by FAR!!!

If you can't admit that, then your "Opinions" are irrelevant.
