Sen. Tom Harkin to Congress: "We are at one of the most dangerous points in our history."
As the clock ticks down toward a possible government shutdown, Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, isn't holding back.
On the Senate floor before 10 a.m. Friday, the senator gave a speech describing how American politics have reached the level at which "a small group of willful men and women who have a certain ideology"read: the tea party and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texashave been able to take over the congressional budget debate in the last week. "Since they can't get their way," Harkin said, "they're going to create this confusion and discourse and hope that the public will be so mixed up in who is to blame for this, that they'll blame both sides."

Conservative talking heads along with the Libs and a smirking and belittling un-statesman like president, have lightly touched on this for days when criticizing Senator Ted Cruz for his efforts to explain and bring Obama's Socialized Medicine truthfully to the forefront....Tea Party/Grassroots Conservatives have successfully put the United States Constitution in the center of the debate. The United States Constitution stands to be even more diminished with the Obama Socialized Medicine.
Heed the words of (a man who has been where) Obama is taking the USA.
Wrong war, senator.
Well maybe if the democrats weren’t trying to impose servitude on the people.....
In 1856 pro-slavery Democrat Rep. Brooks repeatedly beat abolitionist Senator Sumner over the head with a cane. So we haven't really reached that point yet.
Did McCain write the speech for him?
Hey wussy, what part of "No" don't you understand?
They’re just noticing, eh?
Not a lot of room left for compromise.
I say let it get started.
Hey Kitten —I think your right.If I were to agree with the Democratic Party Senator wouldn’t we have heard about some jack beating another mere politician with his cane?I musta missed it.
Hope springs eternal ...
Harkin, along with the other Marxist are now simply afraid now that they are getting push back and people aern’t willingly handing in their freedoms to people like him and his gun-grabbing buddies who want to force every American to purchase something AGAINST their will!
I STAND FOR FREEDOM, Mr. Harkin, BRING WHAT IT MAY!
Don’t start nothin’, there won’t be nothin’.
Don’t start nothin’, there won’t be nothin’.
MAKE DC LISTEN: TELL YOUR SENATORS TO OPPOSE CLOTURE ON H.J. RES 59
We must oppose cloture on H. J. Res. 59, so that Harry Reid and Senate Democrats cannot sneak in funding for Obamacare. We need you to call your Senators right now: tell them to oppose cloture on H.J. Res 59 and remind them that a vote for cloture IS a for funding Obamacare.

Good, we need another to get rid of the ruling elite.
Just a tiny little problem with that though; they've forgotten that neither Anglo-Saxons nor Native Americans make very good slaves.
Or maybe that's the reason for the billion hollow-points?
Looks more like 1776 to me Senator.
Oh, I’m sorry Harkin that your nice little set up in Washington may get a little disturbed.....
Be careful what you wish for...
