Skip to comments.House becomes HQ for 'Hell no' mood toward gov't

The midterm elections that returned House control to the GOP after four years was a rebuke to Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, their stewardship of the struggling economy, their overhaul of the nation's health care system, and more.
Obama made no promises. But he called Boehner and McConnell around midnight to congratulate them, the White House said. Obama spoke more generally of working with Republicans to "find common ground, move the country forward and get things done for the American people."
Pelosi, meanwhile, remained defiant to the end. The Californian issued a statement early Wednesday saluting Democratic candidates who took tough votes, which proved unpopular, to shore up the economy.
"The outcome of the election does not diminish the work we have done for the American people," she said, urging Republicans and Democrats to work together "to create jobs, reduce the deficit and move our nation forward."

Nancy Pelosi does not really get it. I hope they keep her around.
Nancy, you DOUBLED UNEMPLOYMENT YOU PREPOSTEROUS HAG.
I don't think that even they are that stupid.
Tea Partiers give generously to charities, our churches and our neighbors in need. Recognize that and the fact that we do want to pay taxes for the things that are important and you will go a long way to improving your performance rating.
I’ll believe the “Hell, no!” if Congress tells the state of NY to go urinate up a rope when we demand a bailout...
The literal arrogance of that day...
I can’t even look at the spoof without becoming very, very angry. In some ways I feel sorry for this chamber...
They are going to push things through in the next few weeks...
It’s a day for celebrating, for a brief time. Then time to get to work.
If the House GOP majority if serious, they need to do a couple of things right off the bat:
Pass a balanced budget with no tax increases, defunding whole cabinet departments, not in ten years, but next year. This will turn the Alinsky play book against the Democrats. One of Alinsky’s rules is to make your opponents live by their own rules. The Dems have been whining about deficits for decades. Force them to either support huge spending cuts, or to oppose a balanced budget.
Repeal Obamacare. The Senate won’t pass this, nor will Obama sign it, but they need to go on record of repealling it.
Pass a law permitting cross state competition for health insurance, and expanding the health savings accounts.
Do little else.
If they do not do those things, they are not serious.
A few more thoughts: Big government and the free lunch are alive and well in large parts of the country, including California, Alaska, and Nevada. Moonbeam is back. Barbara
Bouncer (don’t call me ma’am) is back. Californians should hang their heads in shame.
The Dems’ ground game is hard to overcome. It includes hauling voters to the polls, running the big city polling places so that people can vote early and often, and keep voting from beyond the grave.
Nancy reminds me of an overripe banana. Every time I look at her, I get this sense of revulsion.
That she has an unfortunate IQ problem, does not help!
The Federal House of Representitives and the State house of Representitives is where the grass-roots can make the most impact and we did.
I didnt expect the Senate, but I see that there is going to have to be changes that will be initiated at grassroots.
Time to change our voting processes so they are in keeping with the century. Voters can scam the system, and if it is an important system, if it is meaningful, it needs to require re-registration of all American voters. Each voter will be registered like a driver’s license. No registaration, no vote. lThere should also be a minimen requirement to vote, Right now all the dementia patients “vote” with the loving hands of the UNIONS.
REPEAL THE 17TH!
That will fix the Senate for good! Let the States choose their Representatives again. This popular vote shyt has got to go.
