    Your campaigns were full of rhetoric and bumper sticker slogans. Now that you have actually been elected it is time to put some meat on those bones.

    Its easy to say "cut spending" "eliminate waste" "end earmarks"....now you have to actually do it. What are you going to cut? What will be the impact of those cuts? What will happen if they cut the Social Security, Medicare ?

    How does a Tea Party candidate get things done in Washington? It is still the same old city.

    I think they are in for a rude awakening and will be the same old Washington insiders they campaigned so hard against

    It's not the "same old city." Obama has made it bigger and more powerful than every before.

    "Yes, We Can". I believe that summed up Obama's campaign. Never did answer the 'can what?' thing... but we know now... and we just told him 'no, you can't'.

    Live with it.

    Me Personally. I'd work on fair labor laws. Union's out of Government completely. When Government Workers swear Allegiance to the Union, it would be so nice that they were referring to the USA, let's remove the temptation. Unions are obsolete, at least their legal activity and function.

    Government Salaries and hours worked per week is questionable. Extended vacation time. Waste Waste Waste.

    You seem to put so much faith in Tea Party Members that hold office, how many do you think there are? Or are you just being silly? I thought so.

    I'm looking at the opportunity to see the various levels of Government, start applying some real Federalism, where things are experimented with, tried, and refined at the State levels, rather than one size fits all Centralized Legislation that does not adapt to concern or need. Governing isn't always about what is convenient for the Governing Body Itself. It gets lazy and sloppy that way. Governing is about maintaining and applying proper remedy. It is Government that is supposed to adapt to circumstance and correctly apply through reason, not expect reality to bend to it's will without question.

    I don't think anyone is going to tell Rand Paul what to do, or how to do it. If you think he's going to go up to Washington and disappear, you have a VERY rude awakening coming.

    I too will be interested in seeing what the revived GOP will do with its control over the House.

    I suspect that our TEA PARTY folks are going to be sorely disappointed when they finally realize that its going to be business as usual in Washington.

    They are going to be, much as the right wing evangelists were, shocked when they see that the RNC leopard isn't going to change its spots.

    But time will tell.

    I see gridlock.

    And before some of you cheer that gridlock, know that gridlock means that the tax cuts will automatically be repealed, and that the Obama HC plan will go into effect, too.

    There's soemthing there for everybody to hate.

    That is an interesting question and I don't know the answer.

    Cap and trade isn't part of it, and neither is the public option. It's not much, but it's a start.

    yeah and you did YOUR part to keep it that way. rooting on every corrupted lying person with a D next to their name and running down every new name Republican, just to SAVE your party.
    so you don't have any ROOM to speak.
