You really have a hard-on for Hansen. You still haven't figured out that the science isn't about the people, it's about the facts.

Newton was a real a-hole, so I guess that means all the science he figured out is wrong.

Right, oh-ye-of-****-fer-brains?

Then why can't you bring yourself to admit that Hansen's a pretty blatant politicizer and chronic exaggerator? All you do is defend and deflect on his behalf.

Just makes it look mostly like Team Group Think has team spirit.

Was An Inconvenient Truth scientific and accurate?

Play the ball, not the man.

The facts aren't on your side, and so you have to resort to ad hominem.

Typical right-wing bullshart.

Did you know the repubs rewrote the rule keeping the dems from asking for this clean Senate CR to be voted on..........>?

No chit they did ?

So they rewrite the rules and Boehner is more worried about his speakership than the whole country...........

POS.........how do you clowns defend this BS ?

Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA) told CNN's Wolf Blitzer that while he believes many individuals are at fault, including President Barack Obama, he said Cruz and others who bought into the quixotic campaign to defund the Affordable Care Act "took a lot of folks into the ditch."



"But if I had to cast blame anywhere, I would say it was Sen. Cruz and those who insisted upon this tactic that we all knew was not going to succeed," Dent said. "What he did essentially, Sen. Cruz, basically, he took a lot of folks into the ditch. Now that we're in the ditch, you can't get out of the ditch, the senator has no plan to get out of the ditch, those of us who do have a plan to get out of the ditch and will vote to get out of the ditch will then be criticized by those who put us in the ditch in the first place."

There have been plenty of multi-billion (in cost) regulatory proposals and burdens put in place over the last 5 years. This is the first time I've heard a proggie ask "But how will the private sector recoup it's costs?"

You elected President "Necessarily Skyrocket" but suddenly care what impact the private sector might feel.

The Senate CR funds the government in the coming weeks at a level of $988 billion. The Democrats wanted $1.058 billion. But they passed a bill at Republican levels. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said late last week: ďMy caucus really didnít like that. We took a real hitÖSo thatís one of the largest compromises since Iíve been in Congress.Ē

Now why did they pass a bill at the GOPís preferred levels? Because, Reid said late last week, he had assurances from Boehner that the House speaker wouldnít attach demands to the Senate CR if Reid brought it in at $988 billion. So this whole thing started with a significant Democratic compromise. But once the Republicans decided that they were going to use both the shutdown and the debt ceiling to try to defund and/or delay Obamacare, they couldnít even vote for a bill that gave them a major fiscal victory. Thatís how dug in and crazy they are.

So let me get this straight.

the ACA is modeled after conservative principles
it's passed by congress
repubs hate obama
they try to defund it 42 times and fail
they say it's unconstitutional but is upheld as constitutional by the supreme court conservatives
repubs hate obama
they tie into the gov funding bill to defund it
gov shuts down
ACA starts anyways
repubs hate obama
they complain that budget is too high even thousgh it is in line with paul Ryan's proposed budget
Boner states that congress should not get special subsidies even though he has worked secretely to give congress subsidies

Does that sum it up?

Which conservative principle does the individual mandate fall under?

And what budget are you talking about? We've been operating on continuing resolutions for over 3 years now. While the Senate has never approved a new budget in all that time.

Repubs produced bills in 1993 that would require people to purchase health insurance. Damn soshalists!

It was conceived in 1992 by the Heritage foundation and adopted by the Republican governor of Massachusetts in 2006.

Catastrophic only, which would be far less expensive than existing insurance plans (unlike Obamacare).

Rachel Maddow put together a list of republicans who are on record saying they would vote for a clean CR bill. These are people that are on record...in their own words.

There are 217 votes.

That's what he's afraid of.

In related news, all regional veterans benefit administration offices will be closed starting tomorrow.

This thing is just about over. Face it, whackos: you lost.

So I can take any Democrat or group of Democrats over the last few decades and assume that anything they ever proposed (without even voting on) is a "Progressive Solution?"

Of course this flies in the face of everything you kids are saying nowadays.

Up until 1996, every federal shutdown involved a Democratic congress.

So really, Government Shutdown is a Liberal Solution

Yeah, that's a great argument. Sounds a lot like "Bush didn't allow a terrorist attack on US soil since 9/11."

Except in my case, there are a dozen+ examples.

Itís true that most voters arenít pleased with Congressional Democrats or Obama, either, but both the extent and the intensity of disapproval are significantly worse for the GOP. (Strong disapproval of Republicansí handling of things among registered voters is a little higher still at 53%.) Thatís not a surprise when no one, including Republicans in Congress, can explain what the GOP hopes to achieve at this point.
