Don't forget Jeff Flake and Orrin Hatch, to name just a couple more.
Seems like Joe Manchin is beginning to fret about his reelection chances in 2016. I hope the voters of West Virginia remember his vote for Obamacare right after taking his senate seat, as well as the other times he's voted with Obama. Sorry, but one right vote doesn't negate all the bad ones - especially for Obamacare!
It's not just the poor and working class affected by the flood of immigrants coming here. Obama also gave the ability of spouses of those here on visas to seek work, too. At a time of great unemployment, including those in the middle and upper middle class, we're expanding the numbers coming here on visas. We already allowed over a million per year; now the number has increased and their spouses can legally get work here, too. It's not just those at the lower end of the skill/education spectrum; they're importing workers to take jobs from those with skills and college educations, too. Think those in Washington are trying to ruin the country, especially the middle and lower classes?
Orrin Hatch, Jeff Flake and Lindsey Graham voted for this radical. We won't forget the betrayal.
Either party could make inroads on the middle and lower classes by doing something to end insourcing and outsourcing of labor. This includes having secure borders, ending de facto amnesty for illegal invaders and cutting back severely on the number of visas. Of course, neither party has an interest in doing any of these things. Their big donors would not approve.
Why would old Orrin do something to prop up Obamacare? Let it fail!
Time to let them know that, if they betray us on this and other important issues, we'll sit out 2016 or vote third party. Before the usual RNC apologists show up, let me just say that the fault with lie with the traitorous scum selling us out. We've held firm to what we believe and elected people we hoped would do the same. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. If they don't do what they promised, those politicians are on their own.
Keith Olbermann is just a liberal, egomaniacal jerk. No surprise that he would criticize those who actually are trying to help others. Can't believe ESPN gives him airtime. ESPN isn't the only network using him, unfortunately. He was featured on an ad for the last episodes of Mad Men, which makes me inclined to just skip them. Well, to be fair, it's the Keith Olbermann ads coupled a decline in quality of scripts and inflicting that annoying Freddie Mercury look-alike on us for the last several seasons.

Good for Rudy Giuliani! He's just saying what millions of us already believe to be true, based on the president's past actions and words. Thanks to you, Mrs. Schlafly, for your decades of service to the United States and the conservative cause.
I'm afraid they won't listen to you any more than they listen to their constituents, House Republicans. Thanks for trying, though. It's more than most of "our" representatives do.
