Don't forget all the time, energy, and effort expended to get their Obamacare waiver.
Disagree. Prison.
If the government knew how to put safeguards into an apparatus such as this, there would be no IRS scandal. Elimination is the only remedy.

There is a relationship between government spending and GDP growth -- it is an inverse one. Government spending comes from the economy in the form of taxes on producers and consumers. On producers it forces increases in price, which reduces demand. On consumers it takes disposable income and reduces their purchasing power, which reduces demand. Democrats freely admit the recovery is sluggish because of poor consumer demand. Well what do they expect will happen when they continue to grow government?

Something not mention are the 11 recessions since 1944 or on average about 6 years per recession. In the previous 11 recession the economy had recovered before the next one hit. This economy has not recovered and another recession is due. When it hits it is going to be very, very bad news for a lot of people. One can only hope that the Democrat party of corruption, little shoebox green cars, Obamacare, and no jobs will be assigned the proper blame for the circumstance the nation will find itself in.
Republican leadership all say Obamacare will wreck the country. Republican leadership all say Obamacare is ruining the economy. Republican leadership all say that once Obamacare, like every entitlement, is implemented it can't be undone. Those are the facts stipulated by Republicans. If they don't stop this train wreck by Jan 1, 2014 then it will go into effect, the economy will be ruined, and the nation will be lost. That is by the facts they themselves grant us. What is their rational for funding Obamacare at this point? I don't get it.
So Ezra Klein is not an ordinary idiot, but a useful one. OK.
Way to go, Big John. BAM. POW. WHACK. A classic smack down if ever I've seen one. It is perfect, except for one small missed point. The middle class, for whom Obama is fighting (heh), is slipping backwards. A permanent golf hiatus, which hopefully diverts Obama's laser focus on helping the middle class, will boost their wealth and earnings.
I find paper towels a good way to clean up kitchen table messes, normally. Obamacare is not the normal kitchen table mess. A better way to handle the thing is to stop it before it metastasizes.
There are thousands of missiles missing from the ME and it is a fair presumption that terrorists have their hands on many of them. Controlling the border is a matter of urgent national security. By conflating this with the immigration issue Reince-Baby proves he is unworthy of the position he holds. Beyond that, does he not realize that Welfare States can't survive long with open borders?
Oh, I don't think it is that hard ... less government spending would break new ground for Republicans. The real problem Republicans have is that they've been on the inside helping to grow government, and now they need to convince people that THIS TIME they get it. That's tough to do when people don't trust you.
