    After wasting nearly 2 years on nothing but Obamacare in 09 & 10 will the GOP do the same damn thing starting this fall or even this summer?

    Our system needs work, yes. But are we going to yet again play the polarizing game of focusing on one issue to damage the other party and thus ending up right back where we started?

    Will the GOP be smarter than their predecessors and not blow all their energy on one god damn issue? If they gain power and put most of their time and energy into repealing O'care with no other economy and job saving plans they will sink their own ship before it even leaves the port.

    Priorities IF they gain control should be something like this:

    Economic deregulation
    Legislation to promote job expansion
    Balance our trade laws
    End the wars
    Repeal most of Obamacare and replace with necessary legislation
    Cut wasteful spending programs
    Enact a budget and follow it
    Shrink govt agencies
    Immigration reform (no more bandaids)

    Then we the people should demand the following:

    Term limits
    Govt salary caps (especially congressional)
    Election finance reform (all this money corrupts)

    They never have, but their obedient sheep lap up their lies election after election and keep punching (R) no matter what.

    If you're driving on the highway and your Engine warning light comes on and your oil pressure warning goes off... you pull over right? Or do you just keep driving till the engine explodes or melts into a solid lump?

    This nation is broken and needs repair. Obamatax is the screaming alarm of the Oil Pressure light turning on. Pull over, and fix the problem right or wait for a tow truck to haul the car to safety.

    I would not hold your Breath. Face Facts the people were choosing from don't actually represent us. They will do as little as they can and still keep their jobs, they will play Politics, and pander to special Interests, and spend to much fucking Money.

    I really feel for anyone that still thinks we can make a difference at the Ballot Box. All you are choosing is by which Mechanism you will be Abused, and how and when this country will collapse.

    It's not like you are choosing between good and bad. You are choosing between Bad and Bad.

    The whole thing is an exercise in futility, Yet I will still go Vote, even though I know my Vote means Absolutely nothing anymore.

    Sarah, aren't you tired of excusing the present by pointing to actions of the past? Obama has a good slogan, Forward, I suggest we actually try to live by it. Expecting the failures of the past to be our new standard for today's successes is a recipe for failure.

    You would certainly get the deregulation and tax cuts for the "Job Creators" on Wall Street, the rest of it is a pipe dream.

    Excellent points, gramps. But let's put that budget near the top, shall we? This country has to have a budget as do familites. It's disgrace this president has not demanded a budget.

    The biggest error Obama made in his presidency was ignoring the economy and jbs right off the bat. If the Republicans havn't learned by this, we will be doomed.
