“Any stats to back that up? Give us some numbers. Have you looked at WI, KS, OH, ID, VA, ME--seems they have GOP controlled governments. Actually the Democratic controlled states--WA, NY, CA are doing better than the average considering the present state of the economy.”

“What, did you miss your junior high civics class? A large amount of funding for education comes from the federal government and then goes to the states to be allocated. Haven't you noticed the House Baggers trying to gut education non-stop since last January, or was it too much of an effort?
By the way, gutting education on the FEDERAL level in the middle of a recession creates more unemployment and causes the recession to last longer. Now, has it ever occured to you that your party knows that, and gutting education was deliberate, as in the only way you guys are winning 2012 is if we're so poor and desperate we'll vote for you?
In other words, if you're having problems with your 401(k) or you're jobless or your neighbors' houses are all getting foreclosed upon, you don't exactly have to look very far to see which party is trying to make that continue.”
“Planned Parenthood gets PLENTY of funding - and women still had access to care. Pulling the Komen funds would not have had any negative impact on services. Plus, PPHood doesn't even do mommograms, they have to refer women out. Komen was well within their rights to follow their policy of not giving to organizations that are under investigation.”
