I have the feeling there may be more to fear of Ms Foxx actually being involved in lawmaking

Michelle Bachmann gets a lot of attention for saying loony things, but I really think Virginia Foxx has her beat.

This type of extremism has no place in a civilized society. If moderate, sensible Republicans don't push now to retain control of their party, we will have a third party...the Pup-tent party.

Hey, Burdell can you tell me how many Senators were involved in making the Senate bill? How about the House bill that we supposedly have that was melded from among three bills? Were there lots of people involved in either of them? I don't think Dirty Harry's locked door room was big enough for many Senators.

While you are counting heads remember to count how many Republicans were involved in dreaming these monstrosities up? Would the probable number be zero?

I am not a grandpa but am too old not to have my Medicare lifted. If my sons had got busy sooner I would be a grandpa although I am old enough to be a great one. I am 77 and don't expect much from the emaciated Medicare this law will leave in tact.

Even, as an old supporter of Obama maybe you could tell me how many Republicans have been allowed any input in either of these monstrosities that will surely be rammed down our throats. I sam rammed because Dirty Harry can't do it ethically so ram he must.
