Honestly, Why the hell cant both party's, actually work something out. I guess it will never happen, when both parties have a completely different vision of America, and outside of stopping the inhalation of the human race the parties have about 0% in common interests these days.

Forcing me to pay higher insurance rates to subsidize others is also stealing. Why should I have to pay higher rates? Obviously being able to take care of myself is a BIG mistake, now I not only take care of myself I am forced to take care of dead beats who can't make it without people like me.

They do have something in common, rob the tax payer. Only Dems were able to convince grubers they were for the people and the useful idiots believed them. This is exactly why we should have smaller government and a less powerful one. Unfortunately the left trusts government and wants bigger government. They just handed more power over the people to them.

Sure it is. Everyone in the country would have an income of zero, if not for society. Strictly speaking, you owe society everything you have. Cabin-dwelling mountain men possibly excepted, although they arguably still benefit from not having to speak German or Russian because of the military. If you live in a society, you implicitly agree to pay taxes.

I would think far more of her if she is willing to stand up for what she believes and votes "no" as opposed to just complaining.

You think she'll vote "yes"?

We can always rely on the left to insult everyone's intelligence.


It's just all they do.

The thing with Warren is that she is a real liberal/progressive.

She's not like Obama who pretends to be one on the campaign trail but governs center right. Now that I think about it, all the presidents of my lifetime have been center right

Reagan
Bush
Clinton
Bush
Obama

Who was the last liberal president?

The stopgap was not an option.

Bloated GOP spending. You sure you want to go with that story?

And right on cue, the libs are vilifying Cruz who did exactly what Warren IS doing. Pushing to shut down the government.

Warren didn't stay with protocol and read Green Eggs & Ham.
