    I hope you are correct, a lot of Congresspeople sold out and prostituted their vote for a handful of gold. I was very proud of the speech John Boehner delivered....but how a guy like Bart Stupak can claim he is pro life but yet vote for legislation that will essentially fund what he is opposed to...

    I hope that the anger that the American public has for their elected officials translates to voting incumbents out of office in the fall....unfortunately we are just as guilty for having put many of these "public servants" in office by the way we have voted or not voted in the past

    the Democrats may have won the battle but the American people lost in a big way tonight

    What's going to happen in November? Both parties are just as gulity with mismanaging the country and has been for the last 60 years.

    The only way we may ever see some real change is if an Independent willing to shrink the Fed Government were to get elected President as well as voters throwing 90% of those in Congress out on thier ears.
    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    Couldn't agree more!

    Did anyone else find Boehner's speech a little "howard deen-ish"? Or a little "chicken-little-ish"?

    He really has no room to complain, as he and his party had 6 (really 8) years to bring about change, and failed to act. The Amercian people did act to "re-take their government", but unfortunately, put the wrong replacements in.

    A big part of the problem is how we get canidates for such meager pay. We should use conscription to obtain canidates, and vote in the best of the best. The best of the best do not want the jobs because they are running big corporations or their own very succesful businesses. These guys will be competitive enough to do a great job if they were forced into office.

    Imagine the possibilities.

    Are you delusional? If not then why don't you tell us where all the money to pay for this crap is coming from.

    In February our nation took in $107 billion, but spent $328 billion. Now I know big numbers make leftists dizzy but if you get your calculator out you'll see that's a $221 billion shortfall...in just one freaking month!

    If your neighbor earns $107 a month but spends $328 a month would you loan him money? Would anybody on this board loan him money? Any of you lefties? Our debt rolls every 4 years or so and that disaster is just around the turn. Hell, it's no wonder Obama bows to all the global leaders. We owe them a ton of money...and we'll never, ever repay it.

    The country is bankrupt and all you want to do is print/borrow and spend? We're on a death train to hell.

    We live in Cuba now.

    i am just sick. i am sick of hearing the dems say how this is a win for the american people and insult the republicans that are against it when the majority of americans are against it as well!

    bush had - still has - more class in his pinkie toenail that obama and pelosi combined. it is so classless for a president to point fingers and call out names like he does.

    such a divisive matter should not be settled like this when the majority of americans are against it and it wins by the skin of its teeth by last minute deals and arm-twisting, and who knows what else.

    and if you think federal funds wont ever be used for abortion in this bill you are delusional. Stupak sold out to save face, thats all.
