    We are not blind republicans, the way business was done in the past is IN THE PAST ... Your great love affair with the idea of Repub owning all houses and the oval office is going to happen, but the Tea Party does like "business as usual" Washington

    We don't care about what party your in. WE DONT CARE if your a DEM or a REP ... Cut the freakin spending of our money. You think it's bad with this budget "impass" ... Look at the future, there will be A LOT more tea party people in government in just over a year.

    Get the spending under control, you are not our buddies either, we may agree on a lot of things, but aparently spending isn't one of them and securing our childrens future by getting this governments spending under control trumps all other things that we see on like terms

    I'll have a lot more respect for TP people if the Republicans win and the TP people still attack them, based on the same principles.

    Ill have alot more respect for the TP if they remove the fringe elements that claim to be core elements. IE Palin, Bachman, and few other corporate lap-dogs that think just running under TP will get them elected.

    The TP is a party of pissed off Americans who are sick and tired of paying for federal governments mismanagment of everything. Were sick and tired of being marginalized and managed by our supposed republic. Were sick and tired of the disdain for the rule of law, and the lack of accountability. We come from both party's because we realize there is zero difference between the left and the right. Its time to get government off our backs and out of our wallet. Its time to do away with this interest bearing, inflation causing currency that screws everyone except for people at the top. The corporate cronyism will end. The corruption will end. Its time to start rewarding labor instead of capitol, its time to focus on ourselves. Its time to stand up for ourselves instead of waiting for government to fix itself.

    Actually it was about a really piddly amount of spending cuts. We wanted X amount in spending cuts elsewhere to pay for the bill and the bill that was submitted fell about 5B short in the savings Elsewhere to pay for the bill .. As one guy said "it was on prinipal, if we give a little here, it becomes a slippery slope"

    That guy just won re-election

    They've already done that. With the budget impasse in the past in regards to tax increases. The only reason people align the TP with the republicans is only the Republican party is the only party that's even close to having some of the same ideas, but make no mistake, the TP representatives are not establishment GOP, not by any means.

    You can not end the deficit unless you restart the economic engine.

    Jobs are the best solution to ending deficits.
