If it's such a good idea, where has this legislation been the last eight years?

my guess is some of those congress people will be doing some complaining of their own when they are jobless.
Correct observation.
This mouth breather needs to be shown the door next election cycle.

If only the grown ups could talk, Pelosi would be left with only the Blue Dogs doing the talking.

Complain....your damn right I'll complain...it's called whining to the Democratic liberals who don't want you to have a voice if you don't agree with them.......
The almighty GOP will come along in 2012, make monkeys fly out of their butts, wave a magic wand, and make everything right...I REALLY don't think so...

I swear, everything always goes back to 'the way of life this country was founded on', which to me is code for 'we want everybody to just shut up and sit back and let us tell you what to do, 'cause we're the almighty GOP, and we know what's right for everybody'...I call horsebleep on that...if folks want to watch 'American Idol', then that's their business...I don't like the show myself, but I DON'T take it upon myself to try and police everybody else's lives...

And you really need to cut out this mess about labeling everyone who doesn't agree with YOUR side 'liberals' or 'Democratic liberals'...not everyone who disagrees with you has a liberal mindset, but it seems that 'liberal' is the nasty label of choice nowadays to lump everybody into who doesn't buy the 'used cars' being sold by the GOP

I see you included my quote with the above but I wasn't agreeing with the previous posters. Just pointing out the "irony" and "the hypocrisy" of this thread as they promptly started to complain and whine. Actually quite humorous.

I'll make a deal with him. I'll stop complaining about what a mess this country is, if he promises to quit screwing the taxpayers over. Deal?

I'd offer that the most miserable people in this country are liberals. They are the ones who constantly manufacture some issue about which to complain. Liberals are never satisfied about ANYTHING,....if there were no problems,...liberals would invent one............
Interesting thought, except for one simple fact, the vast majority of whining these days is not coming from the left, this board provides all the evidence needed to prove that simple fact. There was a time I thought the left whinned too much about Bush, but now that a Demo is office the right has made the left look like rank amatuers and taken whining to a whole new level. I the idea of a whine free day sounds good but I know that the right cannot control themselves for an entire day, so looks like everyoine is stuck with it for at least the next 3 and probably 7 years. I am more interested in what the new whine will be about, kinda like driving by a car wreck, no matter how much we say we will not look we always do.

How about a day when our representatives actually listen to the desires of those they represent instead of just their own agenda?
