OhioDem, why do you liberals consistently proscribe the word Hate on everyone and every subject? I can't for the life of me imagine wanting to join a party (if I were undecided) that routinely promotes itself by tearing others down. What the }{ELL is your point in doing that?

Way to go Bill, if only more representatives has the principals to vote for their constitutions instead of their pocketbook, we would all be better off.

We already knew Johnson is an idiot. His 5% approval rating is well earned.

caltrans “now let's see the republican'ts bring on their "spending reform" bills”

Now let’s see Harry “Party of No Vote” Reid actually bring a Republican bill up for a vote. Never happens. That’s what Democrits call “democracy.” LOL The only solution is removing do-nothing Democrits from office. Make it happen, America. The alternative - four more years of "hope and change"? Derrrrr....

Ohiodem “The teabagger shutdown and almost default cost our economy $24 billion blah blah blah”

The Obamascam tax you leftists jammed down Americans’ throats is projected to cost Americans $2.6 TRILLION. So take your silly made-up $24 billion and buy yourself some tissues, whiner. LOL

I contacted my Congressman and let him have it. The teabaggers are the minority and cannot win elections. Extortion is for losers, so he voted yes.

The teabagger shutdown and almost default cost our economy $24 billion and will knock .6% off the 4 th quarter growth. How many schools could be built with $24 billon? How many of our unsafe bridges could be replaced with $24 billion? How many jobs would that have created? What did the teabaggers get zero, nada, ziltch, nothing. The IRS thing they claim they got in the ACA was already in it. As a matter of fact the teabaggers wanted o take it out the week before, go figure. If you don't like a law get elected and change it not by extortion. Of course as long as the teabaggers are in control the Republicans will never elect another president, thank God.

I can't imagine a congressman that hates the president so much he would vote for the USA to default. That clown has to go. I get a call nearly every week to join a telephone town hall with that %&%# telling us how he is going to save SS and Medicare. Save SS by betting on Wall Street, what happens when you reach retirement age and Wall Steet crashes? He is going to save Medicare by giving you a voucher to buy insurance. What is really sickening is he got in office by accusing the late Charlie Wilson of being afraid to have a townhall meeting. Whats he do has teleconfrances just like he critised Wilson for.

Now that the debt ceiling has been increased and the government reopened, now let's see the republican'ts bring on their "spending reform" bills and see how they stand on their merits, instead of piggybacking them onto unrelated measures to keep the government running, which needed to be enacated.

Very disappointed in our representatives. Ohio had more guts than West Virginia??? Wow I can't believe the words just came out of my head? What were you thinking WVa and PA? So verification of income means that the very very poor get coverage, and the middle class gets bankrupt until they fit into the very very poor group? Very disappointing - everyone please keep praying for our representatives. We don't need you to stand up when it is EASY, we need you to stand up for us when it is EXTREMELY HARD. ;o(

Johnson is the only Regional Lawmaker that actually "gets it". This debate was not about ending the bi-partisan bickering, it was about stopping the out of control spending and treating ALL Americans EQUAL under the Law (ObamaCare). If the law isn't applied EQUALLY then it is a sham!
