    I'm beginning to wonder if the U.S. is ever going to move past this or any issue or if we are just going to keep fighting the same battles over and over again like some preverse game of the Ground Hog Day movie.

    sadly I expect Indiana to follow what Texas did and give up the medicaid funding. It is sad that they will put so many people lives at risk for petty reasons but that is the GOP way now.

    Remember, power is what they want- not what's best for the country.

    That's not true. The GOP passed something like 30 jobs bills that are languishing in the Democrat run Senate. :rolleyes:

    They are bills designed to end the job crushing regulations that prevent the benevolent energy industry from polluting our air and water or worrying about safety.

    There would probably be like 10 new jobs created!

    Tax cuts, benefits cuts, tax cuts, more tax cuts, more benefits cuts mixed in with some basic civil rights cuts such as collective bargaining and spiced with military spending and deregulation of polluters.

    While I agree with some of the Democrats that 250k is too low a limit for the extension of the Bush tax cuts especially places like San Francisco, LA and the larger NYC area, I do agree that we should heavily tax higher incomes along the lines of what Eisenhower did to recoup the war costs. What I would do is tax so called "ineffective wealth" that gets invested and generated in financial services with the exemption of venture/angel investors who fund start up companies or provide funding to companies that wish to expand their business in the US through job creation.

    Even a :rolleyes: would help immensely.

    Then I might not die from shock, that he actually was, somehow, "changing". :eek:
