The House has the power of the purse. If it does not appropriate funds for programs and departments, they don't get funded. Pass bills that fund essential government services and no others and send them to the Senate. If the Senate does not act, the lack of essential services will be on them. The function of the Congress is to legislate, but it is also the duty of the Congress to inform the public about legislation. In this, they have done a miserable job. The decadent and dysfunctional Democrats in the Senate are vulnerable; exploit that vulnerability.

Earl, you speak of "playing hardball"...John Boehner & company simply lack the guts. They're into softball--or "fluffball". They talk a good game, but that's all.

When the democrats play hardball, the republican "leadership" shows up with "wiffle bats".

I'm afraid you're right. Unless of course they just don't see they have nothing to lose they haven't lost already.

I beginning to believe its repeblicrats and demon crans. The GOP offers just enough opposition to distract us and make us think there is opposition then they all get busy taking our money. Spending at 40% of GDP is going to cause in flation that will decimate our retirements.

I'm going to stock up on feathers and heat up the tar. Congressthings and regulators are going to face justice.

While fellow conservatives bash the president for telling Speaker of the House John Boehner that the country doesn’t have a spending problem, I offer Barack Obama another thank-you.

Just when I thought that the GOP’s own ineptitude was going to sink the party, the man-who-would-be-president proved once again that when it comes to being out of touch, you can’t get any better than the First Community Organizer.

Led by Barack Obama and the Democrats, Congress passed a budget plan that doesn’t even do what they said it would- keep taxes lower for anyone not a millionaire or billionaire.

So, now...
