Well it's become quite clear that Republican/Conservatives took the information gleaned by their multiple losses and are using it to keep up a "Misery Offensive". Basically that's the only thing that worked in 2010. That's when Conservatives convinced most of the nation their lives were going to be SO MISERABLE as a result of Democratic policies that they had better elect bat shit crazy tea party candidates to thwart the effort. This produced the Sequester, 42 attempts to repeal the ACA, a government shutdown that cost the economy 24 billion dollars, 55 actual bills being passed through congress (A record low), a slowing of hiring, cutting of vital services to the needy nation wide and 11 million people with legal statuses in limbo. They did all that, and turn around blame Democrats. Well that didn't work in Virginia or New York which both went Democrat. The only Republican winning big was Christie and that may well be because he showed he could work with Democrats to solve problems.

This should have been an indication that making life miserable for people and then blaming your opponents is not good governance and doesn't win elections. There are several bills in the house that if passed would make life better for people. Raising the minimum wage, the immigration reform act and the farm bill. What do Conservatives want to do?

Keep on making people miserable.

Let's see how that works come 2014.

Nice attempt to distract. But it wont work. Obamacare is not going away in 2014.- it will only get worse. It's a slow motion train wreck. All the republicans have to do is sit back and watch it implode.

2014 will be a landslide for the GOP.

Higher insurance premiums higher insurance deductibles cancelled policies you were told you could keep lost doctors you were told you could keep many people who think they have insurance but don't because the payment part of the website still does not work right and more on the way next year as the employer mandate kicks in. This misery brought to courtesy of president Obama and the Democratic party by the passing of Obamacare on a straight party line all Democrat no Republican votes.

Obama's policies are what's making people miserable. The US economy is fucked like a prison gang rape, and everything Obama and team are doing is making it worse.

You can't talk people into misery, they know it as it smothers their hope. It's real.

Just like FDR made the depression worse, so little Black Sambo does the same. We won't rebound for decades, if ever. I suppose all we can hope for is a new World War, or a new Black Plague.

Distract from what?

You guys said the ACA was "costing" jobs.

You see the November jobs report?

November jobs report: Unemployment falls to 7% - Dec. 6, 2013

There's been steady GROWTH since Obama took office.

So are you lying?

I was just in California.

My mom moved to San Francisco. I couldn't believe how pretty that city is..

And lots of happy folks sitting in parks, waiting in LINES to get into restaurants and driving around is new cars.

No one seemed miserable.

Other than the cherry picked Saudi propaganda from FOX, what indicators are you using to come up with this conclusion?

That's 'cause they're both more interested in protecting the 'special' status of the interests that pay for their campaigns than in the nations future.

The sooner we strip from our politicians the power to customize the tax obligations of interests that they deem 'special', and strip from our politicians the power to spend borrowed money because they are unwilling to collect what they want to spend from their current constituents, the better.

Fair and simple.

There are states with fewer people than the total number who lost their insurance thanks to Obama and the Dems.

NSA, IRS, Benghazi, ObamaCare, 7% UE for 5 straight years.

Who besides the non-living would support that?

The Republican/Conservative Misery Offensive.
:
The Misery Offensive will not work because misery is subjective.

If you are the run of the mill parasite then having the government feed and insure you is not misery.

If you are a war profiteer , or own a company who depends on federal largesse for its subsistence, then misery is subjective.

In a nutshhell , welfare/warfare state parasites constitute an electoral super majority. So any political offensive which depends on misery is destined to fail.

The sooner we strip from our politicians the power to customize the tax obligations of groups they deem 'special' and strip from out politicians the power to spend borrowed money that they are unwilling to collect from their current constituents, the better.

Fair and simple.
I would say that there are times that call for some adjustments in tax policy to encourage investment. Like when Clinton gave oil companies a tax break for deep sea exploration.

But those should be limited. And adjusted when they are no longer useful.

I don't blame (or credit) the President for the economy - regardless of who is in the Oval office.

I do blame him for being a LIAR.

Do you enjoy being lied to?
