    Obamacare is here to stay, it will be impossible to get rid of because the hard fact is that once people start getting subsidies, they won’t want to give them up.

    The Leftists would prefer it crashes and burns so they can take us to single-payer UK-style socialized medicine.

    Obama is the one who won’t negotiate and wants to pull the temple down on our heads, but the media won’t portray it that way of course.

    The Republicans should just pass a continuing resolution, and a clean debt ceiling hike, and concentrate on winning in 2014 and 2016. Then focus on salvaging whatever can be salvaged from the smoking ruin the Left has brought us for the past 5 years.


    Mental Illness

    Hundreds of millions of dollars are spent annually to provide welfare benefits to illegal aliens. Do you suppose a bit of that could be used to fund better treatment of mental illness of legal citizens?



    One day the Left will push too hard, once too often, and there will be a pushback. It won’t be just words, and it won’t be pretty. Not advocating it, just predicting it.

    Sorry folks, the ‘surrender now, fight next week ‘ caucus has been in place since 1988. How’s that working out for ya? They’ve run us off a cliff countless times. We who want to fight are not writing anyone out of the party , we’re just wresting the steering wheel away from them.

     Your whole point was belied by the next section, oops, there go the South Asians. Perhaps they simply know the difference between a rising and a setting sun.
