    The Republican Party cannot be taken seriously over its ranting and raving about debt spending when it continues to harbor trough feeders like Thad Cochran and Bill Young selfishly stuffing their faces with our tax dollars.

    Agreed, I think that if the GOP is to survive that it's going to have to walk the walk.
    America seems to have woken up last summer when they saw the direction of this country is heading. A new breed of grassroots conservatives appeared all across this nation. I think both parties should understand what the feel for the governments role really is. It's not business as usual any longer on Capital Hill, and will be shown in the next election.

    Doesn't matter. Americans are too stupid for it to matter.

    Good luck with that. I'll be finding a nice little independent (evilsocialistcommiehippie) town to move to if this house of cards starts collapsing during my lifespan.

    Well using that "measure", it must make Democrats twice as bad


    Democratic Districts won twice as much stimulus cash as conservative districts.
    Maybe she thinks democratic districts should get to keep all the stimulus cash?

    :eusa_whistle:
    Democratic districts have received nearly twice as much stimulus money as Republican districts and the cash has been awarded without regard to how badly an area was suffering from job losses, according to a new study.

    The Mercatus Center at George Mason University reviewed the distribution of $157 billion in stimulus dollars based on publicly available reports and found that there was “no statistical correlation” between the amount of money a district got and its income or unemployment rate.

    “You would think, right, that if the administration believes in its theory that government money can create jobs, they would spend a lot of money in districts that have high unemployment,” study co-author Veronique de Rugy said. “We found absolutely no relationship. It just kind of shows that the money is spent kind of randomly.”

    Rather, the study found that Democratic congressional districts received 1.89 times more money than GOP districts. The average award for Democratic districts was $439 million, while the average award for Republican ones was $232 million.

    On average, Democratic districts also got 152 awards, while Republican ones got 94.

    Why would the Republicans need to actually do what they say they'll do? It's not like their supporters actually care about deficits.

    I concur with that sentiment.
