    Sorry, the laws of physics would never apply to politics because because of the ability to cheat and lie.

    But your right what ever Obama says the teahaudist say the opposite. (even to their own bills)
    I wouldn't call it equal since they supply no Ideas or solutions just a void, where once an good idea existed.

    Wake em up, dress em up, and parade them around again, it doesn't solve the problem.

    Mike Lee is always on the wrong side, like when he worked to force UT to accept hotter nuclear waste thru litigation.
    How can Mike even claim to be fiscally conservative when he bailed on his personal financial responsibilities?

    Where does Obama Care get its money?

    A. From the people they're helping
    B. From the working community
    C. They simply print it up
    D. They borrow it

    For every action, there is an opposite and equal reaction.

    "Obamacare is like Christmas for children with free gifts for millions. "


    If you equate getting a new bicycle with getting medical care.

    I just wonder how many of these tea party types are already benefiting from government healthcare? Whether they're on Medicaid or some subsidized plan.

    It's the classical case of, "I got mine so forget you!"

    So what's their solution?

    Do nothing other than repeal?

    Great solution...

    Why does the photo of BO have a caption about 3 repub senators?

    They did not fund the congressionally approved, with a majority of dem votes, wars. Be honest in your assessment.

    Obamacare is like Christmas for children with free gifts for millions. The unfortunate part is taxpayers will have to fund it, somehow!

    As a country, we're broke, and in debt.

    Defunding should be easy.

    Only a corrupt government would get us into a debt of $560,000 for every second of a year, and almost half of that debt has come within the passed five years.

    Put on your seat belts, there's more to come.

    They didn't fund the Bush wars, and that didn't stop anything...

    Headlines in the Wall Street Journal talk about the Tea Party again and mention those who will be running for president.

    None of the four mentioned are offering alternatives, just down with what is happening. This does not seem to matter but what does matter is their names are now in the press again. Good job guys you will now have some credibility come election time.

    Have they helped the country or states they represent?

    Are they busy with their own agendas regardless of what those who elected them want?

    Seems they are well on their road to eternity or the next best thing which is Hatch-hood a long and well paid road to forever in Washington.

    We hear about Tea Partiers and we hear about RINO's.

    I'm sure it is safe to say that Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are not RINO's.

    But who else? It looks to me like it only takes one "slip up" to be expelled from the tent.

    Tarp, NCLB, Medicare part D, auto bailout, bank bailouts
    Even Paul Ryan voted for ALL of these these.

    Is Paul Ryan a RINO?

    So, what is a RINO? Whats the definition?

    Can someone list 10 members of the GOP that are not RINO's?

    Looks to me like Cruz, Lee and Rand Paul are the true RINO's as they are the minority outside the GOP mainstream. Kind of like Hawaii calling the US mainland, "the big island".

    How would Reagan stack up to today's definition of RINO?

    It seems that Obama has to blame someone for the 63% of the 53% working amreican population who don't want the Obamacare plan and faking it as a tea party movement is a good way to fake his lies. The other 47% who don't pay insurance or taxes wont have any impact on its funding resources. With less
