And your kind of talk is nothing but hateful rhetoric you claim you want stopped.
What 1890 position of the Republican Party is backed by today's republican.

So the republicans should have known the democrats would lie about vouchers ? Yep they knew and chose to say the truth.

So now dems what are you planning to save Medicare Medicare.

As much as you believe obama is a socialist, Obama is cutting medicare like paul ryan wanted to do. The only difference is ryan wants to privatize it, obama keeps it under the government watch.

I agree, the RNC and party leaders need to drop the "social conservative" narrative issues. They need to focus on things that are the government's responsibility based upon the US Congress. Things like national defense (not being Team America, World Police), fiscal responsibility, and enforcing our nation's laws or changing bad laws should be their focus. Key social conservative issues should be left up to the states.

How can the repubs be silent when the press constantly ask them about it?

Which proves the media you get your news from is biased.

The repubs want to reform these programs they stay solvent not abolish them.

You show how ignorant you are on all these subject.

Show where the GOP has thrown ANY black out of the party. You can't because it has never happened.

Yep, on all except a woman's right to equal pay. Wages and benefits should be up to the employer.
