“So it is okay to make adjustments to "the law of the land".. just checking..”

“Reading & Comprehension 101 was a tough grind for you, wasn't it? Just checking...Because I didn't say that we should change the automatic sequestration cuts when they hit the Defense Department in 2014. I said that the GOP/Tea Partiers would be squealing like little girls to change the law and get those cuts taken out. You know, people like you. Republicans wouldn't consider changes in sequestration levels per 2013 because "it is the law of the land." Then they want to use extra-constitutional measures to change "the law of the land" because the ACA doesn't appeal to them. But they're already talking about changing "the law of the land" per those defense cuts that are only a couple of months away. Which is it, Sparky? You can change "the law of the land" if you like it. You can't change "the law of the land" if you don't like it. Tell your people to get a consistent position and then we can talk. Until then, you and your bogus "law of the land" inconsistencies are dismissed.”
“Sorry, but the budget control act is "the law of the land"..”

“We'll find out just how committed you are to sequestration as "the law of the land" when the sequestration cuts decimate the Defense Department early in 2014. Republicans/Tea Partiers will be squealing like little girls when those automatic cuts hit an industry that is like a personal ATM for them.
LOL!!! Be sure to get back to us with your bogus "law of the land" sentiments, then, Sparky!”
“2014 is going to make 2010 look like a DEM landslide.. Democrats will NEVER be able to defend against voting against things like the VA and the NIH..”

“let us know when you are back on your medication and awake. you brain is a little slow. you can dream all you want to, I would like you to explain 2012? I mean the gop had it all fit and tied signed sealed and delivered and then......nothing. the demographics of the country is changing and if you don't get on board, you are in for more election heartaches. The gop even realizes that. Their followers are the ones who seem to have a hard time understanding the logic.”
“Obamacare is automatically funded, this shut down is now about DEMs keeping their Obamacare subsidy and the exemptions for Obama's big business friends..”

“Wrong...the shutdown is about funding the whole government and grand standing by the GOP...even their own party is splintering. It has no basis except fear of the Teaparty primaries in highly gerrymandered districts that do not reflect the real population diversity of the U.S. ”
“I can't wait till the senate dems start going on record voting against funding the NIH and VA..
Expect a GOP sweep in 2014..”

“history and facts are not on the gop side. surely you can see past your willful ignorance to conclude that much. But, once again, It will take another election to prove that the gop is dead except in small gerrymandered corners of the country.”
“Obama just says whatever, he feels no obligation to be honest with the little people..”

“He couldn't tell the truth if he had to! Could that be why his approval ratings have been plummeting this past month? Could it be that people are FINALLY waking up to his lies and seeing him for what he is? Could it be that people are realizing that they've been had?
“All Harry Reid has to do is agree to pay for his own Obamacare and make Obama's big business buddies comply with "the law of the land"..

“A simplified soloution that solves nothing. Please explain why the Republicans continue to pay themselves while laying off all other Federal workers. Please explain why the Republicans protect their own completely free health care while stopping citizens from these great insurance opportunities based on income?
The obsession with certain personalities by right wingers has nothing to do with the law or proper governance. ”
“Reid shutting down government to protect congressional subsides and big business exemptions is DESPICABLE..
Obamacare is funded, it is the LAST thing this fight is about..”

“Anyone can believe whatever propaganda the fiction writers at Fox create ... its your choice. Or you can find out what is really going on by reading a few newspapers. Reid and Dems have been trying to get a conference on the budget with the house for six months and the Repub leadership from both houses have refused ... until the last minute of the last hour before shutdown...that is just a spoiled brat set up ... and then point the finger at the other side ....
if you have ever raised teenagers you will recognize the same behavior in the Republicans in Congress. ”
