    This "party of no" stuff is childish. The democrats were the party of no when the republicans held the majority, so in essence, there will always be a "party of no."

    Question: if the democrats got their asses handed to them in an election by the republicans and faced super majorities in both sides of congress, would you want them to abandon their ideals and just say "sure, whatever you want, you won."

    ...

    Didn't think so.

    I don't think the Republicans were the only members of the party of "no" in yesterdays elections. Seems like a lot of independents and Democrats also stood up and said "no" at what has been going on in Washington. I love your spin on it though...

    Get used to it.

    The entire ideology of leftist wankers like potter 58 is that of spoiled little children.

    Unfortunately currently there is no "party of no", there are only parties of "not invented here", this country desperately NEEDS a party of no as in :

    1. No more unconstitutional power grabs
    2. No more deficit spending
    3. No more wars of aggression
    4. No more foreign interventionism
    5. No more ham handed economic interventionism
    6. No more special interest entitlements, subsidies and "bail-outs"
    7. No more trading liberty for "security"

    Or as AuH2O put it
    "have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution ... or have failed their purpose ... or that impose on the people an unwarranted financial burden. I will not attempt to discover whether legislation is 'needed' before I have first determined whether it is constitutionally permissible. And if I should be attacked for neglecting my constituents' 'interests,' I shall reply that I was informed that their main interest is liberty, and in that cause I am doing the very best I can."

    I think that you have drunk too much of the leftist kool-aid. The Republicans have offered a number of bills in regards to fixing the healthcare system in the country (all of which the Democrats said "no" to). Learn to research yourself and stop using the political wonks talking points.
