Crooks covering for a crook. They should all be hauled out in the street and retired. There should be a coup to take our government back.

No it is OK to have a tax cheat on the ways and means committee just as it is to have one as THE U.S. Treasury Secretary. The Dems are just being consistent.

It’s become a government of the government, by the government and for the government.

But hey, their intentions are so good! /huge sarc.

at 243-156 it simply doesn’t matter who they were.

The 19 “present” votes plus the three republicans were not enough to change the outcome

Indeed they will try to pass health care. I don’t even want to call it health care. It’s not. It is rationing pure and simple.

And to think that Nancy Pelosi seized power in 2006 beating the drum of a “culture of corruption” and pledging to bring “the most ethical congress in history”.

Tom DeLay’s case STILL has not been brought to trial by the corrupt Democrat prosecutors.

The silver lining is that the crook remains highly visible, (a’ la Rostenkowski in 1994) in time for the 2010 elections.

I would guess that all those that voted for this are pretty corrupt themselves and fear the same thing may happen to them.

If I were the GOP I would use Rangel as the poster boy for every anti-Dem ad for 2010. Plaster his fat a$$ everywhere.

If Rangel was a Republican, he would have been tarred and feathered, then frog-marched out of DC a long time ago.

Time for a rant: It’s long past time we start promoting IMO Left vs Right instead of DemocRAT vs Republican, or whatever other Leftist Political Party vs Republican. The reason being the Left is the Left no matter what party they belong to.

RINO’s are Leftists adding the potent Leftist ingredient of confusion to the political brew IMO, and therefore must be exposed for whom they are. They are subversive Leftists, or they are subversive Democrats under the Republican umbrella. They are subversives preventing the two party system from functioning appropriately.

For there to be debate, there must be a minimum of two opposing perspectives, or there isn’t any such thing as legitimate debate, and the Nation isn’t properly served by her government.

RINO’s must be eliminated from the Republican Party, or caused to return to the Leftist Political Party of their choice so that once again our Government can actually function for the people as the founders designed it to function.

Democrat, and/or Democrat lite as in single issue Leftivity don’t cut it.

I lost all faith in the government of the United States long ago. It is completely broken. This is not good; 20 years ago, had a foreign army set foot on our shores I would have fought to my last breath to defeat them. Today, I’m not so sure what I would be fighting for. Some days, I think they are already here, and running our government.
