Well, that's that. The roll call will be useful.

Primary is a verb.

Ha -Haa!!!

Obama locks in his Stimulus numbers, spending skyrockets every year,50% cut to Defense? , Bush tax cuts expire hiking rates and a “Committee” will determine what to cut. If not automatic cuts to socialist programs allows Obama to blame the GOP for tossing granny over a cliff.

What more could Obama have hoped for.

I have never been so disgusted! I could slap Boehner right across the face. I was afraid he would start blubbering before he brought the gavel down. Just waiting to see how my rep voted. If he voted for this, I will NEVER vote for him again.

Yep. The 'certified' institutionalizing of the U.S. RED INK in perpetuity.

We need to POLITICALLY ELIMINATE all the "YEAS".

They all showed the world just how wonderful obama is.

Sarah warned those voting for this, I’m told. I wonder if she warned the senator she campaigned for. What was his name? Oh, yeah. McCain.

You can RINO hunt all ya want. This nation was dissolved with the election of Big Ears. That is the day that it all began to unravel past the point of no return. Seriously, have many of you check into moving outside of this country?

The only thing good I can see coming of this is more people got to see just how little the elected representatives think of them.

At least on obamacare the dems rammed it down America’s throat with no help from the repubicans.

Finally, I’m convinced the republicans are just as deep in voter fraud and campaign funding as the dems. As Rush said, people call all the time and say they’ll never give another dime to the GOP yet they always raise more money than the democrats. In my oppinion, people who vote for republicans are just as stupid as those who vote for obama.

Does anyone know where we can find out how they all voted now? I’m so disgusted, I could puke. We gave them a mandate not to raise the debt ceiling and taxes and in reality they do both. I haven’t heard anything yet about the Bush tax cuts going on or expiring. Is that even mentioned in this bill?

I am from "outside of this country" - believe me, it will always be much worse anywhere else so we HAVE to fight here and now to save the best country in the world. Here is no other country like America in the world. We just need to find the strength and the right leader to save her from the marxists from BOTH party.

“Appears to me, we have just watched the end of the Republic and the establishment of a Polit Bureau.”

Ditto that.

I wonder how much of this money will go to Zero’s brown shirt brigade? Let’s all not forget that little gem that he wants badly. Truth be told, he probably wants that more than the spending increase.

2012 can’t come soon enough.

Go weep with Boner. Maybe the rest of us can pick up and run enough Tea Partiers to carry the next election. No caucus in your neck of the woods?

Guess that makes me pretty stupid.
I'll probably be just as stupid if Palin runs and gets the nomination. It's not the party it's the people.

Of course I never got the opportunity to vote for or against most of the schmucks in dc.

This is a fantastic bill. Spending cuts with no tax increases. Cuts to the Democrat’s favorite socialist programs. What Tea Party-er could disagree with that?

Congratulations to Boehner for a job well done. Now we elect a Republican President and Senate, then finish the job.

Unfortunately, those not voting for Republicans are voting for Obama.

Is that where you fit in, Terry? Did you enable the election of Obama by either sitting out or voting for someone whom you knew would lose?

What we have to do is vote for more conservative Republicans. It's obvious from this vote that we need a whole lot more principled conservatives in Congress. A whole lot more....

We got the ball rolling in 2010, and need to take it to the next level in 2012. We need more Tea Party people in both houses, and most, if not all of them will be running as Republicans.
