(ABC)   President Obama:"I cannot remember a time when one party promises economic chaos if it can't get 100% of what it wants." Really? Is it traumatic memory suppression of the Republicans in the 2011 debt-ceiling disaster or early onset Alzheimer's?   (abcnews.go.com) divider line 46

bmongar: eraser8: serial_crusher: What percentage of what the Republicans want has Obama offered them?

That depends.  What is it you think Republicans want?

Gay Blowjobs in restrooms
Repeal of all amendments after 10 except the 2nd
Repeal of child labor laws.
End of Social security
End of Medicare
End of Medicaid
Corporate Liability Caps
0% Corporate tax
End of minimum wage.

a few more things


1) Ban birth control. Ban abortion. Abstinence-only edumakashun.  Defund Planned Parenthood.
2) Wonder why so many out of wedlock births.
3) Abolish food stamps. That'll larn them Welfare Queens. (The Welfare Queens with the babies, of course, not the ones with the zillion-dollar contracts with the Small Government®.)
4) Ship all the well-paying jobs overseas.
5) Gut the public schools. You don't need no edumakashun to work a McJob, and teachers are Union Thugs (except when the NRA wants to arm them).
6) Hike taxes on people who work for a living. Cut them on the plutocrats. Abolish the minimum wage. David Koch's Mercedes is six months old and he wants a new one.
7) Wonder why so many people break the law instead of starving quietly, or getting a McJob for take-home pay that won't take them home.
8) zOMG CRIME WAVE!
9) Zillion-dollar Small Government® contracts for private prisons and purveyors of riot gear.
10) No ??? here, baby.
11) Profit!

Wait until the 2016.

If a Republican wins, it will be the dawning of a new golden age for America.

If a Democrat wins, it will be confirmation of the continuation of 1000 years of darkness because the new Democratic President is obviously the libbiest lib that ever dared lib, but at least Obama wasn't that bad, and that while mediocre in general, tried to make up for his obvious failings.

i'm shocked that you can't identify the stupid. shocked.

Do you support the notion of threatening to wreck the US economy ? or do you think that is not a thing that happened?

My guess? Defunding Obamacare will result in so many benefits that it will more than offset the tanking of the US economy.

I would love to ask all those who are for defunding the ACA what exactly they would offer as an alternative. Please give us an exact plan and an exact cost analysis. Since this whole deal is to punish the United States for voting for the black guy, I know for a fact they can't come up with anything.


You know exactly what the response will be. Cross-state shopping for insurance and tort reform.

Oh, and tax cuts.

/cost analysis? HERITAGE FOUNDATION!

I think the last time it was 98%.  So, pretty damned close to 100%.  WTF is the GOP's problem?

the thing that kinda gets lost in the 98 percent thing is that people assume it was 98 percent of what the GOP wanted in an effort to avoid the sequester....when in reatlity, the sequester was among the 98 percent of what they wanted out of the situation to begin with. boehner was shopping it as a desirable outcome before the negotiations even began.

when you have people slobbering at the idea of default or shutdown, negotiations to avoid that result are kinda outta whack to begin with. the desired end result is calamity, not getting what they want in an effort to avoid it.


An analogy to further this point:
Democrats want to go to see a movie while Republican want to lock themselves in the basement after kidnapping, murdering, raping, then eating the neighbors kid.  However, the Republicans are willing to compromise with only molesting the kids while watching Hannity in the living room then letting the kid go.

They need to be treated as such.

There have been cases where Republican senators have advocated collapsing the economy to get a re-write of the US constitution and it's waved off as crazy GOP talk.  At what point do we begin to treat them as a national threat?

I see your ignorance is not limited to politcs. Math is something else you have very limited knowledge of.

Part of the whole "ending waste, fraud, and abuse" thing entails doing away with superfluous government programs, and cutting the funding to others. There's no reason we have to dig ourselves further into debt because gov't spending is out of control.
