So at least you admit it is out of control. At least you are honest about that.

I've said it before and certainly wish Reid and Pelosi were tossed out.

And that's the thing. You know your congressional leadership bites when they are constantly owned by those clowns.

Maybe the Reps should try finding a leader who doesn't look and act like a turtle and a House Speaker whose claim to fame isnt that is he's cried on camera more times than any grown man.

re: What ideas have the far right of the R party put forth??


Since the label has stuck (no reason to debate the actual merits when the message is continuesly parroted), the republicans are charged with changing the message. They obviously can't because of so much division with they're own ranks because the answer is simple. Flood the floor, the media and the airwaves with ideas. Where that unwillingness to work towards common republican ideals is coming from is hard to say without actually being apart if the process. I suspect that many within the tea party have decided its their way or no way, thus mucking up the whole party, basically conceding victory to the other side

When Pelousy became Speaker, she inherited a deficit of $200 billion. That's way too high, but it's a trillion less than what we've gotten from the Democrats.

It's hard to take libs seriously when they support Ogump even though he does all of the things they disliked about Bush on an even larger scale.

Thier idea is simple. Solve the debt problem by reducing spending, starting by ending all programs that are not included in the Constitution's intended scope for the power of the federal government.

Amazing how the political spectrum has been warped.

When did being against warrantless spying and indefinite detention become a right-wing nutjob position? When did opposing corporate welfare become a position only a brain damaged Glenn Beck clone would hold?

I want just a FEW to propose ending Medicare and social security then.

Because until they do, they're just hypocritical

Owned by who? Obama is the Clown in Chief! They get their orders from Obama. That you don't recognize Obama as an enormous part of this problem says a lot about you.

They're just like all the other politicians.

All talk. No action.

Guess who the vast majority of them cast their vote for speaker for?

Their following (many of the mindless idiots of the poliboard) are foolish and/or brainwashed themselves

It appears the media and the ignorant voters are forcing the republicans to compromise on stupid ideas. The Republicans are blamed for being the party of "No" when they refuse to agree to stupid ideas yet they are still at fault when the dems get their way and it fails.


Sound like you're speaking from the minority as far as the nation is concerned. Just an observation.

Haven't they passed a bunch of bill, especially dealing with a balanced budget? You can't call them the party of NO, when every time they do pass something the Senate will not even bring it up for a vote. Both sides are screwed up because neither side will allow up and down votes on stuff.

Then 2001 came along and two wars went unfunded, the Medicare Rx went unfunded and tax cuts were put in, twice. And the debt doubled. And Cheney told us there was nothing wrong with deficits.


where do you think the Tea Party emerged from?

HOw about the crazy notion that we not spend more than we collect in taxes? I know that is just a silly notion, but how is it any sillier than the ideas put forward by the Democrats that we can simply increase taxes on the wealthy to solve the deficit? At least the crazy idea of the far right of the Republican party has the positive of being guaranteed to eliminate the deficit.

How many spending cuts did your Party of Yes agree to? How many votes were taken in the Senate, controlled by Harry Reid from the Party of Yes, that considered spending cuts?

The tea party faction. They have opposed R compromising plans, the Speaker's own plan, democratic plans. Everything.

That faction literally is the epitome of the Party of No.

Having a 100% rating from FreedomWorks foes not make someone smart or a leader.

In theory, I'd like their alternatives, being that fiscally I align with much of what they believe in. Except the only plans from that faction come from Breitbart.com


A shitty compromise is a lousy idea. Better to get nothing, than crap that's worse than nothing.

The general consensus of most of the people I've seen who identify themselves as Tea party people is fiscal responsibility. Something that's been absent from Washington DC for over 50 years.

In short, they want a balanced budget, and some semblance of a plan to actually start reducing the DEBT and get away from the entitlement culture that's been spawned.

You probably aren't aware of it, since most people aren't since they don't bother to look.

Prior to 1932, the US government ran in the black, actual real surplus they used to pay down their debt just over 50% of the time. Since 1932, it's been done exactly 5 times, the last occurring in 1957.

Anyone with more than one functional brain cell knows the debt bomb when it goes off will be catastrophic. Your willingness to "compromise" will ensure that it does indeed happen.

They have put forth no tax increases without immediate significant spending cuts. Just because house leadership is willing to cave to dems doesn't mean they should just follow suit.

Do you understand what these people were elected to do? Most of te rallies that got these folks elected had chants of "taxed enough already


The trouble is that no one in the United States is taxed enough at our current spending. The idea that the middle class should not be expected to foot more of the bill is insane. Admittedly the wealthy enjoy more benefits of the current system where there possessions are protected by a healthy economic barrier between them and the masses, but we are all skating because we spend more than we earn. Each of us us responsible for this in one way or another. We get caught up in silly issues like gay marriage and gun control and we allow the Pols to continually sale us out. It is our own dam fault for being too lazy to do what needs to be done to get back on the correct path.

Most pre Fox Tea Partiers I know are for weening America off these entitlements. To abruptly end it would be mad
