    I guess most reasonable Americans had enough of the those bullies in the House.

    It will be close, but many House seats in the 2-digit IQ southern districts are very safe. 

    Not only are they proud that their representatives don't follow any legislative rules, but they only get their information from echo chambers and they are being taught that Obama is a reckless spender who shut down the government because he wants more socialism.  Civics rules and the truth will never make it into those gerrymandered districts.

    No party should have majority in congress, senate and WH. There should always be some type of balance. Just sayin

    Agreed, a monopoly on power leads to corruption, or a stimulus package. But I repeat myself.

    I agree .... I just started this discussion because of news item I read this A.M. ... I realize that most Americans are somewhere in the middle of the Political Spectrum .. I happen to be left of center and maybe further left than most but not by much. I imagine that the CNN Poll that I read does have validity to it though and it shows that a majority of Americans want a functioning Government and not a bunch of inflexible zealots in charge who had no problems hurting the Nation.

    We'll see, if Obamacare continues to make negative headlines over the next twelve months, it's going to be hard for the dem's. When you say reasonable Americans, you mean reasonable democrats? Right.

    I don't want Obama to fail, he's here until 2016 no matter what so he may as well succeed...but I do want Obamacare to fail, big difference. I'm sure in your circle the ACA is more popular than the GOP, I suggest getting outside of your circle.

    There's also a big difference between hoping that Obamacare will work but thinking it will fail, and therefore opposing it....

    ...and simply wanting it to fail regardless of whether it might manage to work.

     

     

    The latter sounds very much like simply wanting Obama to fail.

    Dems will mess it up...plenty of time for them to blow it over something silly...and they're still re-districted to the negative in too many states and counties.

     

    I'm all for more political parties, too...

    ...but more along independent lines and not the extreme right tee partee or extreme left greenies.

    That's probably the GOP's best hope, but they keep putting the debt ceiling showdowns in the spotlight, and that's a proven loser for them.  We'll have another round of the GOP looking like a bunch of sore losers in February, and there will be some sort of deal that kicks it down the road to July, each delay making the general public angrier with the GOP and the tea party right angrier with the establishment candidate.

    This has the makings of a blood bath come November.

    Obamacare will live.  Should the republicans gain control of the Senate in 2014, they will develop a new-found love for Obamacare, and seek to "fix it", rather than can it.

    The establishment reuplicans (RINO's) and the democrats all want government control over people to grow. creeps.

    The dependency class has grown as well.  Obamacare adds to the dependency class on the backs of the middle class, which is the real endangered species here.  The middle class loses under Obamacare (higher deductibles, loss of control), has lost the most int he 5+ year economic malaise (workforce participation rate, rise of the part-time economy), and is less and less important to either party (witness immigraiton reform).  It is the dependency class that is important from a politicial persepective.  We slid right by the tipping point about half way through the Bush presidency.

    You're right I'm not any of those two but the avatar does have some relevance to my attitude ..... I'm a left of center pro union democrat who ain't afraid to go toe to toe verbally with anyone who wants to stop any other American from attaining the American Dream and reaching their maximum potential .

    Semper Fi !

    newman,


    "I don't want Obama to fail, he's here until 2016 no matter what so he may as well succeed...but I do want Obamacare to fail, big difference. I'm sure in your circle the ACA is more popular than the GOP, I suggest getting outside of your circle."

     

    That circle you referred to is a lot larger then you think.

    The latest Gallup poll has only 29% of Americans favoring total repeal of Obamacare.

    Let me do some math for you newman. 

    This means 71% of Americans are NOT in favor of repealing Obamacare. 71%.

    That is huge.

    So why do you not join those on the right side of history instead of staying with the small minority rooting for Obamacare to be repealed?

    Nice try.  Even if your statistics are right, it only means that 71% are not in favor of TOTAL repeal.

    This is the real takeaway, according to Gallup:

    "Gallup Editor-in-Chief Frank Newport shares that 50% of Americans would like to see Congress scaled back or repeal the Affordable Care Act, compared with 38% that would like to see Congress expand or keep the Affordable Care Act as is. "

    Big difference between 71% and 38%.  You tried to slide that one by....
