CBO NEARLY DOUBLES OBAMACARE ESTIMATE...The CBO always has to reconstruct liberal numbers. Smoke and Mirrors are hard to see through…………….at first.

$1.76 TRILLION OVER 10 YEARS!

FLASHBACK: Obama pledges legislation will cost 'around $900 billion over 10 years'... Obama lie……..say it ain’t so.

New study finds Obama's regulations cost $46B a year...and most all job killers.

__________
HIGHWAY ROBBERY: Dem transportation bill worth billions for companies owned by Soros, others...Organized Labor………more like organized crime.

CALLING, HOLDER: O'Keefe Strikes Again; Dead People handed Ballots in Vermont...Like goes Chicago, so goes the liberals everywhere.

Energy Sec. Chu:'I've Done Everything In Our Powers To Reduce Gas Prices'...hahahaha last week it was we need prices like Europe.

Almost unanimous votes on trashing our Bill of Rights at every opportunity. Indefinite detention, freedom of assembly and freedom of speech being done away with it seems more each week
But passing a bill that says you don't get paid if you don't do your job that you were elected to do
Yeah...that's a "long shot"

Their pay is a tiny part of what the 'make'. Pass a law that says if they don't get a balanced budget they can't run for re-election.

Of course, no one in Congress will ever see a payless payday. The beauty of what has evolved as our government is that any inconvenience can be swept away with hastily and thoughtlessly composed legislation. Corruption abounds from the local to the national level. Unfortunately, even those whom I presume to be well educated and informed, roll their eyes and change the subject if matters such as this are introduced into the conversation. Most care more about the standings on "Dancing with the Stars."

Why are the Democrats so concerned about the budget? Everyone from Reagan to Cheney knows deficits don't matter.

As majority leader of the Senate, Harry Reid, hasn't passed a budget since Obama was elected and that was when Nancy Pelosi was Speaker of the House!

The democrats are afraid to pass a budget. They had two years of COMPLETE DOMINATION of the SENATE, the CONGRESS and the PRESIDENCY and they did not pass a budget.

Wake up, America! Wake up!

Out with all democrats in 2012. They don't deserve to serve our nation. They had the ability to create and pass and budget and the FAILED!

'wake up' won't answer unless a way is found to spin it without actually answering it. I know mine is way up after losing my shirt when W. and the republicans were in charge!

Exactly, mine took a nose dive when Bush was in office too. Despite the DO-NOTHING Congress, MOST AMERICANS are doing BETTER than they were in 2008!

So you finally admit that Bush was the cause of the 2nd Great Depression in 2008??? There's hope for you yet!

Presidents get the credit and the blame for EVERYTHING that happens on their watch!!!

LOL, after having everything in my 401K stolen, and companies no longer willing to participate in any retirement effort at all, it is worthless. Why?? the rules all changed over the past 30 years due to VooDoo economics. Almost no one can look to retirement.

Union Names Chinese Premier 'Best Friend of American Worker'...After Obama’s jobs Czar sent whole companies to China, I guess this is his thoughts over Americans.

Worth every penny, Laughing Lobotomy.

The President bonding with the Prime Minister. Allies solidifying the bonds of friendship and mutual trust. And doubtless they spent time during the flight discussing important matters between our two nations.

Don't you wonder how much their steaks and their drinks cost? LOL!!!

And to hell with the little guys and gals paying at the pump for fuel. The green agenda matters more, to their small extremist environmental base.
