“Let not kid ourselves, the misuse and abuse of the filibuster like it has been by the Right Wing has been, in effect, the Nuclear Option being used in reverse. It cannot be viewed in any other way. So, once again their fake outrage is only for show when you look at their comments following the move. When their only comments are “we’ll do the same thing and more when we are back in power” shows its has never been about what’s best for America. It’s always been about what’s best for us.
And for McCain to say, "It raises the stakes in 2014," and who has often remarked that “elections have consequences” we are seeing the consequences of voting in Tea Party play out right in front of our eyes.”
“This coming from someone whose party has the worse congress and party leadership poll numbers in our country's history. Even when I try and give you a way out with your party’s abysmal poll numbers you still can’t help but open mouth and insert foot. Amazing.”
“My approval rating with my kids dropped big time when I told them no Disneyland until they clean their bedrooms! Next week after Disneyland they will be at an all-time high!
These approval rating stories for whatever side of the isle are just plain stupid. They change from poll to poll depending on the issue of the moment and not the day. Unless there is some long term numbers enough already.”

“Until they are high and then you can't wait to use them as proof of Obama's success.”
What falls short is the moral conscience by those who are blocking and obstructing ObamaCare in an effort to prevent millions of men, women, children and seniors from getting health care all for the sake of a few.
What falls short is the religious high ground by those who are creating a wedge using hatred and lies to destroy a law that could improves the lives of millions and save the lives of thousands just because they dislike the skin color of one man and the progress he represents for our country.”
“This is what happens when at least 12 states block people from enrolling, some in the media scare people who want access into not enrolling, people don't sign up because the name Obama is behind the ACA and when a huge national scare campaign from one of our major political parties, who only want to shut down or obstruct the process purely for political gain, does there thing. And yet thousands are in and millions more are coming. The greatest power is an idea whose time has come.”

“No, this is what happens when a president blatantly lies to the people.”

“and that idea is to screw the middle class by forcing them to buy way more insurance than they need or want to pay for the 50 million Obama freeloaders
Obama has screwed the middle class forever”

“Block people from enrolling? Please elaborate / cite source.”

“Name those states who have blocked people from enrolling?
Oh yes, there is Oregon who has their own website and it has not gone online yet.”
“What's weird is after America watched them shut down the government, that brought along plummeting poll numbers, they go right back to showing America how little they care about America. Back to being the party of "No" shows how much they want to move the country forward. That's great PR. Not! Also, it again shows party first, Americans seconds.”

“Guess you haven't seen Obama new poll number huh?”

“Correction, Party first, Lobbyists second, and the American people third (actually, last)”
“It doesn't cost the tax payer a dime. The point is the greatest website in the world still fails from time to time. Where is your FAKE website outrage over that? No? Nothing? I thought so.”

“How long did FB take to solve their problem? Was it weeks? months? Did they waste 600 million on a botched website? There is no comparison. Obama should not have trusted a Canadian company and let them have a closed program where it couldn't be fixed easily. Epic and historically failure on his part.”

With tens of millions of people watching an error plagued World Series games Congress to hold a hears demanding a delay in the playing the World Series and all baseball games until the game can be played without errors.
Also, Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins game inundated with errors. Congress demands a game played by multi-million dollars football stars who are suppose to be the best in the world should be played error free. Congress asks, “after all the tickets and merchandise bought millions and stadiums being built by tax payer money that makes the game possible, is that asking too much?
Senator Ted Cruz demands hearings be moved to his country, Canada, where they play football with three downs instead of real football which they play the game with four downs.”
“"Let me make it very clear, Mr. Yelton's comments do not reflect the belief or feelings of Buncombe republicans, nor do they mirror any core principle that our party is founded upon," Mitchell stated. "This mentality will not be supported or propagated within our party."
Hmmmm, that’s odd. Every platform the Koch Brothers Party, I’m sorry, I meant to say the Republican Party stands for clearly states otherwise.”
“Let’s assume, for a second half milli-second, that your comment, “Thousands, if not millions, are losing their health care”, is true are you also saying that due to greedy health insurance companies raising their rates and companies dropping health insurance for their employees so the employees will pay for it themselves giving the companies a larger profit margin is Obama’s fault? Really?
Are you saying that ObamaCare, which is giving offering ten’s millions health care through monthly subsides so that can buy health coverage a much lower cost, is a catastrophe? Are you saying that now that you have an opportunity to lower your health care cost for you and your family you're not going to take it? Are also saying that providing health insurance to people wouldn’t otherwise get health insurance is bad thing? Explain the logic in this with a talking point please. I have to read this one.”

“Yeah, insurance companies don't want to sell their product because they are greedy. "I've got to get out of this place. Can't stand this level of abject stoopidity. The DNC thinks for you because you simply can't do it for yourselves.
“Why don't you ask Bush about the two wars he kept off the books that added the trillions of dollars that exploded the debt. Let’s add TARP and the mortgage crisis. Let’s add the worst recession since the 1930’s, millions of jobs lost. In fact Bush. Oh yeah, you don't like talking about. You had no problem when Bush raised the debt limit 17 times!!!!! And that 47% you're talking about, well most live in Red States while we in the Blue States subsidize them. Next time let your 6 year old grandchild think for you. Get a clue. Not a talking point. Have a glass of warm milk. it’s way past your bedtime.”
Thanks for reminding American's what the Republicans think of the 47% again.
The 2014 Democratic Party.”

“Hey genius, that 47% you talk about, they got to be the lowest 47% by living under liberal democratic policies. Hey, here's some good sensible advice, if you're thumb hurts because you keep hitting it with a hammer,....get rid of the hammer. The same principle applies to politics, when your country and state keeps going deeper and deeper into debt, stop electing the clowns who want to keep raising the debt ceiling so they can borrow more money and go even deeper in debt. That's what the democrats and Obama are doing, they claim they are cutting back on spending,,, but for some mysterious reason they think they need to borrow more money to pay for the new spending that they keep telling us they have cut back on. My six year old grand child has better sense than to fall for that mess of double speak. Can any of you Obama supporters explain why they need to borrow more money if they have cut back on spending. A bigger budget each year doesn't equate with spending less, well, does it???”
