Love of country?

“The notion that a radical is one who hates his country is naive and usually idiotic. He is, more likely, one who likes his country more than the rest of us, and is thus more disturbed than the rest of us when he sees it debauched. He is not a bad citizen turning to crime; he is a good citizen driven to despair.” -- H.L. Mencken

Tell it to harry reid!

Obama's regime is not business as usual in DC. It has become a life or death struggle for a socialist revolution. the dems/socialists, as stated by their president...will not negotiate. That does not play well in a system set up for compromise. If there is no negotiation how is anything accomplished. Somehow the media propaganda machine has confused the electorate by interchanging the terms negotiation and capitulation.

Only a brainwashed dem robot would look at the op title and not see the extent of the problem and the false premise posed by the op title.

What is most amazing is the dem solidarity with the president. You'd figure there would be a few reasonable dems out there to prevent such tradgedies as obamacare. Unfortunately the legislators refelct the obliviousness and lack of ethics found in the electorate.

Our system of government is set up to temper and test opposition ideas and proposals. Consensus must be reached for sound legislation. Obamacare is an abberation and proves the value of the original system of tempering legislation with argument. Obamacare was not tempered in a hot enough forge and thus has produced a brittle, useless and ineffective product.

What's to negotiate when you have to pass it to see what is in it????????

Nancy is essentially telling you that negotiations are impossible because no one is versed in the details and that to see the details the legislation must be passed. If you don't see this as an American tradgedy you will agree the rep led 112th cogress is the least productive.

It seems your view is that we were better off living in caves to fend for ourselves.
Yes, the usual liberal "logic". If you don't support Obamacare, you want poor people to die. If you don't support free birth control, you have a war on women. If you think it's okay to have In God We Trust on coins, you want to establish a state theocracy. Either agree with you, or you take it to ridiculous extremes.
Contrarily, I think that government has the capability of making life better.
Of course it does. It also has the capability of being intrusive, abusive, inefficient, and corrupt. And once you liberals give government the power you're constantly trying to give it, you will not be able to stop any of that abuse or corruption. That's something you all don't seem to grasp. Your freedoms and resources are finite and once you give them up, you have no way of getting them back.
The fact that the GOP doesn't believe in governing is a problem of its own.
It's only a problem for people who want to invest more control and power in government. If you wanted to follow the constitution then it wouldn't be a problem. It says a lot about you that you consider people wanting to be left alone as a "problem".
