This is disgusting.

The weeks are not just shorter, but consistently so. The Senate did not have a single five-day work week in Washington for the first seven months of the year. The House had two.

Don't forget that they don't mind that we pay their health insurance, their pensions, and their "expenses." Like flying back home every weekend.

Well you can thank the TP, Rush, and most of the current GOP leadership. They'd rather vote on ACA 40 times to no avail than to make things better for the rest of us !! Remember if things get better for us, it helps BO, and they CANNOT allow that to happen !! sick

Yeah there's always some partisan bickering, but the GOP has taken this to "A-Rod on steroids" !!
mad

Like Frank said last night on Maher... until the electorate starts booting out the extremists (Paul, Ryan, Cantor, Castro, McConnell ... long list) , they'll keep right on doing it !! The electorate HAS TO ACT !!

Hold up, isn't it Harry Reid that calls the senate to order?

Re: Our tax dollars at work, not. - 08/08/13 10:21 AM

The ACA votes were in the GOP House - (Boehner) and Reid's hands are tied because of the filibuster rule (60 votes). Hence Frank hit the nail on the head- as long as the voters keep electing "the crazies" (aka Palin, Bachmann, Angle, Ryan, Rubio, Cruz, Paul....etc) NOTHING will get accomplished !!

I think C. Matthews is right (last night). The next GOP POTUS nominee will be Ryan or the likes because they've come up short twice with moderates (McCain, Romney). The uber-conservatives will rule the 2016 primaries for President... and maybe many other slots. SO we may get our chance to see how that works out. THE only thing that might prevent this is if the GOP runs a slew of super-conservatives in 2014 and most lose badly and the Dems retake the House while holding onto the Senate. Then they might take a 2nd look, but as of now, they'll nominate a very hard rightie (Ryan, Rubio, Cruz) ! You can forget Christie or Bush. . . . and Perry ? ...don't make me laugh ! grin

Lets face it there is no one decent to run in 2016 for the GOP Party maybe Jeb Bush who knows.

Re: Our tax dollars at work, not. - 08/12/13 07:14 AM

Forget Jeb... they'll never nominate anyone "moderate" and I'm not sure the voters would like another Bush, esp after the last turd bucket ! You can also write off Christie, besides being moderate, he chastised the current GOP leadership and Party over funding for Sandy relief. Don't agree with his positions but at least I RESPECT the guy... more than I can say for most of the GOP leaders and members in Congress.

Can you imagine Hillary and Sarah duking it out to be the first woman POTUS?

Jeb is smart. That makes him even more dangerous than his idiot brother.

Rand for Pres. Cruz for V-P.

They'll nominate Palin for Secy. of State--all that vast experience with Russia, you know. Tom DeLay's extensive judicial experience would make him a terrific Atty. Gen. For Secy. of Defense who better than Richard Perle or Paul Wolfowitz. In Treasury James Diamond would be terrific. For HUD no one better than Herman Cain. For HHS, of course, Michele Bachmann. For Interior I can think of no one better than Rick Santorum, who has such an intimate knowledge of his own interior. For Energy, clearly, Rick Perry, who knows Texas tea inside out. In Commerce Donald Trump surely outbids anyone else. For Homeland Security there's no one better than Newt Gingrich. As a concession to the hard middle-of-the-road Republicans, Chuck Grassley will be ok at Agriculture. Transportation, Labor, and Education can just go unfilled for the duration. And Veterans Affairs will just be abolished because the whole nation will be conscripted, so everyone will be handled by the Dept. of War . . . I mean Defense.

Oh Hillary would slice and dice her like a cucumber !!
IF Palin thought Katie was tricky... Hillary would have her tied in knots in about 10 sec !!

BTW _I'd love to see it !! grin

I think the "reality" show "Sarah Palin's 'ALASKAR'"
blew that image for her. It was a hoot watching her
stumble around attempting to do things she'd boasted
about doing on a routine basis.

..and watisname's tell-all-book blew her "Hockey-Mom"
image all to hell, revealing her to be a lazy bon-bon
eating manipulative lay-about b!tch that did little to
even care for her own kids... leaving them to fend for
themselves and care for each other while she became
the eternal climber we've all come to love. smirk

Yop!
If it weren't the dumb looking bucktoothed

she'd be damned impressive.

I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Glad that pin-head didn't get
into any meaningful office so I'd have to hear that voice
of hers all the time 'cause you know dammed well
she'd be grabbing the mic on every occasion.

Her voice goes through me like nails on a chalk-board.

Cute...

Interviews are one thing
What gets to me is when she's using that 'special'
naggy/whiney voice "EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEEE

You mean "to spout her vile, hostile, viral bile for a long while as she tries to beguile but is in total denial and it just turns into an old-style pile !! " wink

That's what I thought you meant ! laugh
