he's a Democrat, what do they care about his opinion.

In all honestly, the House GOP Representatives' repeated attempts to repeal ObamaCare are a waste of time, especially since this is their 41st time doing it. They may have the majority in the House, but not a 2/3 majority to override President Obama's veto of such a bill. Nor will the bill pass the Senate, held by the Democrats' majority.

This Congress has been very unproductive, like the "Do-Nothing" Congress President Truman had to deal with, but worse actually. Personally, I strongly believe the latest crop of Tea Party representatives are milking their jobs, not doing anything constructive, reaping benefits while they spin BS back to their people back home. Personally, the Tea Party, like Scientology, is just a racket to make a few people rich, IMHO.

"We're going to have a relentless focus on creating jobs."
  10 Feb 2011

"I'm going to stay focused on what the American people want us to stay focused on, and that's jobs," 10 May 2012

"Republicans have been relentlessly focused on helping small businesses create jobs, and we're going to remain focused on that goal...." 21 Jun 2012

etc., etc., etc.

But I'm sure that "Obama something, something, something..."

Yes, the Republicans have tried to repeal Obamacare forty-one times and Taxbongo has not budged an inch.  But it's the Republicans who refuse to compromise.  Got it.

When people's opinions on Obamacare start to evolve, the "I voted to repeal your affordable health insurance" forty times isn't going to sit well with the electorate. If Obamacare was such a terrible system, all the GOP would have to do is sit back and say "Please proceed, Mr. President," then watch it implode and court all of the people who were unhappy with it. Since they're absolutely terrified that it's going to come online as written, it's a pretty good bet that it's a pretty decent system. It's like the GOP only has two settings: lower taxes and pander to the base.

They're in a car speeding towards a cliff, and the brakes do nothing but mention lower taxes, and the accelerator speeds them up with derp.

At least this week, their "lower taxes" setting seems to have temporarily overridden their "bomb brown people" setting. This is how we measure... progress?

oh so now we know the limit for the libs to actually do something. 41 farkin times. what a party. you libs make me sick.

fta It passed, as usual, 235-191, and as usual will now die as the Senate won't bring it up and the president has already promised a veto.

Obstructionist Democrats ignoring the will of the People's House.

FlashHarry: for a party that purports to want to spend less, the GOP sure is wasting millions upon millions of dollars on this purely political bullshiat.


Roughly 61.5 million now. I can't seem to find the article now, but I do recall reading that each repeal vote costs us in the 1.5 million neighborhood.

More disturbingly, every vote keeps them from debating an actual bill.

Little, unimportant things... like the US Federal Budget.

Libs: Hey Republican your idiots for voting for these guys just because they will try to vote down Obamacare that has no chance of going anywhere.

Tea Party Republicans: What??!? How dare you call us stupid, we are not.

[after Bohners idea of budget with Senate Obamacare vote rider]

It's too bad Republicans don't control NC's state government. With their belief of small, unobtrusive government, he could have gotten some medical marijuana for his condition.

The true smackdown was performed by the GOP who layeth the smacketh down on Obamas candy ass healthcare act. It will go down eventually, when it happens you just cant plan it. 51st time will be the charm?  Heres the thing Libs think Obama is the Great One but he has them fooled. He promised them unicorns and the tooth fairy but hes not the peoples candidate, hes the corporate candidate and sold out to Wall Street. At the same time he taxes corporations too much and destroyed my S Corp I own. King Obama also sold us out to drug cartels with Operation Fast and Furious. 5, 6 or 7 agents died because of that. Thats faster and more furious then we can accept. Dems, here is the rundown: America is doomed unless you get smart and vote GOP. Otherwise prepare to take a journey to ragnarock, it will be a race to which mountain we will all live on as you have two choices: stay off the grid; house gangsters in your home despite the 3rd amendment. Thats his game plan. Create a commie society where people will snitch on you to the brownshirts for thinking freely, you will be sentenced to THE most electrifying chair and will have no retaliation because he took are guns. Also his Syrian terrorist friends will blow up the empire state building and gays will kiss you against your will. So lets avoid the pain and gain some real freedom. Dont just vote for the black guy to be 'cool', this time vote for the other guys and we will all be walking tall and holding are heads up high leaving the polls and we can avoid the racian wars that would occur if Justice for Trayvon wins in 2016.

usually i don't view video but i must say, it was refreshing to hear someone on the floor acknowledge & condemn these Republican stall tactics and obstructions. talk about waste of both time & money, how can anyone considering themselves to be fiscally conservative support such chicanery and deceit?

again, Fark you GOP & TeaPatriots, you people are farking disgusting, full of witchcraft & baloney.

I'm not sure he's serious, but it is hilarious to see that "fiscally responsible" types have no problem with wasting millions on a bill that doesn't even have a chance of being discussed in the Senate, let alone signed by the President, let alone have the votes to override a veto, let alone etc, etc, etc....

Keep tilting, Speaker Quixote.
