“I hate the left. I hate what they stand for. But at least they do stand for something and then fight for it. The Republicans are both stupid and cowards.”

I respectfully disagree with regard to the GOP. They too are the left. The Democrats wear the uniform and carry the standard for the left. The NWO GOP is Fifth Column left. Brazen hatred in one party, feigned friendship in the other.

Except for RINO Linda Grahamnesty, all of my state's Republicans are solid TEA Party and voted no or in the case of Sen DeMint (who was already gone) didn't vote at all.

Starting Thursday it's a final showdown between the RINOs and the conservatives in the GOP—the GOP-e vs the TPR (TEA Party Republicans) and we are gonna win—we will make being a Republican something to brag about again and kick some liberal Democrat arse...

or all move to Texas and secede.

What Boehner has NEVER understood is that B. Hussein Obama started in politics as a Bolshevik Communist AND HAS NEVER CHANGED.

Boehner has thus become B. Hussein’s favorite BFF.

If the House RINOs will vote Boehner out and Jeb Hensarling in as the Speaker there would be hope, not much, but hope none the less.

Ohio voters in 2012 gave the USA B. Hussein Obama and Mega-Tan-Fan Boehner. Must be something in Ohio’s water - - - .

“Short of a rebellion, we are all quite done. Anything less is more theater.”

Until sovereign bankruptcy can no longer be denied, we will have more theater. When the lights go out, people will slowly realize the show is over.

Romney was/is/will always be/ the emptiest suit in town. His Marxist pals and habits were/are on the record.

What we have learned is to tune out the naggers insisting we settle for head waiter types who serve the tables of liberal, socialist, Marxist agendas while wearing a Republican apron and an elephant hat. Sheesh.

Never again. Rebellion or bust.

151 Reps voted AGAINST the bill and 85 FOR it—almost 2 to one. They should never have taken a vote.

I am. Tomorrow I raise my Fed tax examptions to the maximum amount and just set the money aside to cover the 2013 taxes to be paid in April 2014. Personally I think we may not even have a country or legitimate currency by that time.

Ryan chose the GOP-e over the TEA (Party)...he is betting that the Marxists are going to win and knows that collaborators get better treatment in the camps—heck,he might even make Kapo.

It would also be interesting to compare this list with the list of RINOs who voted for GWB’s TARP in 2008.

No, be glad the voting is done so they can be primaried and voted OUT OF OFFICE.

Yoder was a “NO” vote, not that any of it matters at this point. Of course, the market will be happy and sparkly for a week and all the sheeple will think all is well. I’m thinking until February’s UE numbers get released.

Good for the house!

I hope all THEIR needs are fulfilled. I hope they don’t lose prestige or position on Washington.

I also hope that their life depended upon their vote. I can respect that. I mean, if, Bambi, in some way, threatened their lives or the lives. Of their families, sure. Ok, I’ll accept that.

But, I really don’t think that is the case. I think they are cowardly, greedy, little small membered, men who deserve no respect at all.

And if we continue to put up with this shit ....so are we.

My Congressman voted against it and so did people like Steve King. We should go after those who voted for the bill.

Ultimately, we need to form a third party. Neither party wants to cut spending. In fact, most of the public doesn't want to cut spending. They want all the benefits the welfare state has to offer. They just don't want to pay the bill.

Neither I hope. Away with RINOS!!!


Correct, Memphis Moe

Rubio has voted with the Dems on quite a few bills. His vote is shocking because he actually did not side with the Dems.

Rubio is still La Raza, RINO, and Amnesty Liberal. He is not a Conservative. A clock is correct once a day at least
