Tweeting him won’t make me feel better.
Getting him, Cantor and McConnell out of leadership will.
If they were going to cave [and deep down we all knew they would] they should have at least saved us all the drama and done it weeks ago. Maybe we should save money and just eliminate the House altogether since the Senate is all both parties seem to think we need.
Paul Ryan voted for this and Boehner
I am curious to see which Rino Monkeys voted for this.
FK that A-hole. I have nothing to say to him.
Cowardly Lion with a fake tan.
Mthr fkkng Bozo.
Guy is an assclown.
Exactly. These DC Hacks work for the K-Street Money Changers.
Not for us. A pox on both their houses.
Roll Call is up:
I watched that. LoL!
I despise the republican traitors
Ryan is finished as a national candidate. Liked him before.
Don’t care for him now.
Sure. They didn’t have to do squat here; they could have raised a stink about no budget in 4 yrs., they could have passed their own and recessed, etc.
No, the GOP willingly laid down and rolled over. They will do the same for the debt ceiling.
I did notice there was a run on kneepads, so I’m guessing they doing more than high fiving each other....
You caught that smirk, too?
You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension: a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You’re moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You’ve just crossed over into ... the Twilight Zone.
Ain’t it the truth?
Sorry, meant 113th Congress above, not 133rd.
Not according to the president, who has already said next year he will demand higher taxes again. Do you think the republicans will stop him then?
hmm, 16 Dems voted against it...
Thanks for posting, I was looking for the breakdown.
They are disgusting worms and should be rode out of town on a rail
Had enough yet, House Conservatives?
We know you have the numbers... time to oust this embarrassment of a Speaker on January 3.
If you don’t, it will be the death of this party.
“The House GOP needs new leadership”
Historically the opposition Party, the Republicans, wins new seats in elections in the sixth year of a president’s terms but Boehner is demoralizing conservatives.
Primary challenges and third-party candidates will destroy the Party in 2014.
Just posted on Facebook, too, hopeing it’ll get spread around.
Know your enemies...and the ones that voted for this travesty ARE our enemies!
Anyone still think principle doesn’t matter?
Saw that. We are Doomed!
Please tell me you didn't really fall for this line of BS.This was a vote for more taxes and more spending. Coburn, once again, is all mouth, no backbone.
I respect Dr. Coburn. I don’t like all of the bill but it lowered my taxes so I can’t argue that one point with him...at least my income taxes.
The TZ episode on now is the one about the bank robbers who make off with a haul of gold bars, put themselves to sleep for a hundred years, then awake when the `heat’s off’ to find that gold is worth—One billion dollars an ounce!
No, it turns out that in the 21st century gold is worthless, a base metal.
Moral: Buy lots of brass and lead. Good show Rod!
NO Cheers, unfortunately.
Just filled out registration to un-affiliate. I’m done.
It will be hard to see where the tire tracks end on these Rino Monkeys
on the fiscal cliff vote and the new tire tracks begin on the debt ceiling.
Just ended, and I missed most of it but it is an interesting note on current events.
What weirds me out is that Govs have been swindling each other with gold bars filled with tungsten.
If the big guys are doing that to each other, what are they doing to us?
Oh my o0
Well, that’s about what’s happened here.
We had a slim chance of saving this country before the election....we failed, it’s over.
This is no longer my America, this is not the country I grew up in.
The MSM cartel has broken our backs and our gutless leaders have failed us.
I wish success for all of those that believe our country can be taken back, but I no longer believe that it can be done with a ballot.... not anymore.
God bless you all.....
Kiss them goodbye.\ The electorate isn’t playing.
Great. Now if I could just rent one for a single weekend. ;>)
geez, nd who didn’t see this coming last summer?
who created 99% of this government/tyranny we have? : Democrat congresses did.
What the hell are you talking about . Pelosi and Obama passed socialist healthcare . no republican voted for that . Sure the media fooled some Republicans on this fiscal cliff bs. but to ask for Pelosi is the most ridiculous thing I ‘ve ever heard.
The democrats control the media, presidency , Senate . and have a lot of the House . Republicans never raised anything as the democrats control practically everything including the media which is the most powerful part.
Republicans should just go home forever. Leave one designated Congressman or Senator behind to call a quorum at any opportunity or when it appears that a majority is not present. Force the Democrats to always be present and show the country the GOP will not go along with the status quo.
Well that's what true Sons of Liberty might do.
I’m sure Michael Medved is happy.
Great job there boner ya obammy butt boy,
What makes it so unexpected? I had absolutely no faith in Boner or any number of Republicans to make a stand. Why did you have faith in them?
Neither shockking nor unexpected, but the result of the Republican primaries of 2012 and the dearth of leadership demanded by the American people
