I'm really proud of the republican congressman of our district!

    I don't know. The Tea Party hasn't exactly impressed people here in Nevada. I went to a couple of ACTUAL tea parties (okay, I had a beer) to see if they were as whacky as the press portrayed and they weren't. Nice people. used to have only one agenda: fiscal responsibility. Then they gave us Sharon Angle. I think she was even more stupid than that "witch" gal back East. After being on local tv for a couple months, her stupidity went national. No thanks.
    Then the Tea Party was co-opted. Fiscal responsibility is nice but apparently so is lobbying for telecoms and Gasp! Accepting money from lobbyists who work for the very banks they whined about bailing out.
    So much for their credibility. At least here in Nevada, anyway. The curtain has been pulled back.

    The Ryan budget was a joke. I like this guy Heller and his Democrat opponents are a couple of idiots. I'm pretty confident he'll be re-elected.

    you're absolutely right! It's a shame the GOP won't work with the Dems to fix the problems that the GOP has created!


    j/k ;) I think both parties are just plain off the reservation. But I like this congressman.

    Surprised he did that before the primary. Does he have any TP opposition? He may have realized it's too late for them to get anything together.

    After the debacle known as Sharon Angle, the contributions from the Bailout Banks to Tea Party congressmen being accepted and publicized - although not much was made of it in the MSM, it was a story here - Michele Whackmann etc.... they've pretty much lost their teeth here.
    What was once a grass roots group that was all about fiscal responsibility, has been co-opted in a big way. I don't know about where you are but they have about zero credibility here, anymore.
    The Libertarians are probably the only 3rd party with a real presence and credibility in Nevada, nowadays. I may disagree with a lot of their views but at least they're consistent.

    It's a moot point. To listen to the whining you would think Barry Hussein and Harry Reid were also republicans. Republicans have a majority in only 1/3 of the legislative branch and medicare is broke. Do-nothing democrats stand in the sidelines and pretend they are bystanders instead of doing something about it. No surprises.
