I'd like to thank all the people that do. I appreciate your children supporting me for the rest of my life. Long live Prenatal Socialism.

No wonder he is out of jail. Obama has him tapped to be the next Secretary of Commerce.

You didn't seem to mind when we were spending hundreds of billions to kill people in Iraq and Afghanistan. How is that different fiscally?

killing people isn't that expensive. The expensive part is the thousands of schools and medical facilities that have been built, vaccinating hundreds of thousands of children so they died from conditions long erraticated in the West, building wells so and water purifaction facilities so people can drink clean water, modernizing irrigation and agriculural practices so people can feed themselves. America's foreign policies are certainly debatable especially with all our problems here, but save your Keith Obermann crap until you get any kind of clue as to what our troops are actually doing.

"Minnesota's Collin Peterson joined six other House Democrats in voting against the bill." Well, Congressman Peterson, the next time you want to force through Congress some more bloated farm corporate welfare, I think your vote here will show just how hypocritical you are. I'm getting tired of you putting a (D) after your name when it's obvious it should be an (R). You don't give a dogpile about the working class; you only care about the big farm ownership class. I think it's about time you are put out to pasture, sir.

Blue Dogs, infamous for their support of George Bush: enhanced FISA, Patriot and Military Commissions Acts, pro-life, pro-war, "fiscal" conservatives with a focus on tax cuts for the wealthy and latent increases on the lower and middle classes. Why do we need Republicans when we can have Democrats like Collin Peterson?

this morning, your job search is not going well is it. Well not to worry, you can sit on your behind and get a thousand per kid extra even though you never paid a dime in taxes, and don't forget your "tax rebate" even though you haven't paid any tax. This is nothing more than sinking your great grandchildren into debt for supporting people who refuse to support themselves.

Anyone who has a job has to like getting a tax cut. Of course all of those Republicans waiting on thier unemployment checks will be squealing like swine about this bill.

Harry Reid has a lap dog. She will do what ever Harry wants her to do. She has never voted against Harry. So when she is in the Senate, she really represents Nevada and not Minnesota. I am waiting for the day when she really stands up against her party. I will be waiting a long time. In order for that to happen, you have to have backbone, something she is clearly missing. Maybe LAPDOG AMY can borrow some backbone from Colin Peterson.
