I know most of you will blow this off cause Rush tells you different, or Fox tells you different, but in the amount of Bills passed., major legislative issues, the last congress did a lot

Rush is wrong?
I looks to me like you only posted in hope of attracting some heat. If thats the case get on the phone and verbally duke it out with Rush himself. If he's wrong he'll do a good cover-up. If you're wrong we'll all pitch in for your funeral.

Rush is an ex disc jockey that gets off on anger and hate. That is why he has such great ratings, he feeds America what they want and that is hate against the goverment no matter who is in charge or what has been done.

Oh yeah he is also a pill popper and a liar.

So did Stalin and Hitler!

I doubt that many of us will live long enough to see our country recover from this Congress's "accomplishments"

PS I love how the Bush tax cuts are no longer just for the rich now that the Dems need to try to keep the economy going!

Well, well, well...let's just look at the great things this congress has done from the above link.

In the past two years, it has:
-- expanded the safety net with the health-care law;

Oh yeah this was great. As Nancy said: "We have to pass this to know what's in it." What a poor way to conduct business.

This bill is so bad that 222 companies have already received waivers from this piece of garbage. If it were so good, the waivers for these big companies wouldn't be needed. FAIL.

http://americaswatchtower.com/2010/...thcare-waivers/

-- invested billions in the nation's roadways, airports, schools, and green technologies with the stimulus;

Mostly pork filled pet projects. Hundreds of thousands of dollars wasted on Obama stimulus signs. Unemployment is the cry from the people, not pork for Obama's cronies.

-- reformed the nation's financial system with financial reform;
Good grief, we had this meltdown because of the idiot Democrats in Congress...now they want credit for solving it by throwing money at billionaires on Wall Street? Check this out and tell me the Democrats didn't cause our housing and financial collapse:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cMnSp4qEXNM

-- passed billions in tax cuts for Americans with the stimulus and the extension of the Bush-era tax cuts

Wait, wait...Obama and the Democrats said the evil Bush and his evil tax cuts were double evil and couldn't be continued. Whaaaat?

-- expanded civil rights with the repeal of "Don’t Ask, Don't Tell."

What happened? Almost 25% of the troops surveyed by the DOD "official survey" said they will leave the military or consider leaving because of this repeal. The military has such a difficult filling the numbers that they have been allowed to "lower the standards" for recruits.

We are operating with a military with lower standards now. If anywhere near 25% leave the military because of this, the military may have to lower standards again. The stupid congress and Obama left no way out. They didn't pick one branch of the military to openly enlist gays and do a long term study. They just passed this law. There is no way back now. Messing up inflation or failing to fund highways for the next ten years is a problem, but nothing is a problem if our military gets messed up.

And in its final piece of business, the Senate is currently working on one of the White House's top foreign-policy goals: ratification of the New START treaty with Russia. Then throw in all of the other legislation enacted this Congress, like credit-card reform and the Lilly Ledbetter anti-pay-discrimination act.

I wouldn't trust Obama and congress with a treaty with Russia for anything. Obama had Hillary give the Russians a red button that was supposed to say "reset." But instead the button said: "overcharge."

http://gawker.com/5165729/hillary-c...ssia-the-button

Do you really think these pack of idiots can actually get the correct wording for a treaty?

-- reformed the nation's financial system with financial reform;

-- passed billions in tax cuts for Americans with the stimulus and the extension of the Bush-era tax cuts

-- expanded civil rights with the repeal of "Don’t Ask, Don't Tell."
Accomplishments --

Expanded the safety net with the health-care law;

--The expanded health care law will undoubtedly bankrupt the nation in very short order if it is ever fully implemented. The books were cooked by the leaders of the House and Senate by directing the Congressional Budget Office to ignore the items in the bill that would jack the cost up dramatically so it could be sold to the reprobates who would vote for it.

--The cost of this debacle is unsustainable. What an achievement. It was also forced onto the country over the objection of about 65% of the voting population and only survived after being sold to a handful of liberal politicians who ONLY voted for it after being offered billions of YOUR tax dollars for their local pork projects.

-----

Invested billions in the nation's roadways, airports, schools, and green technologies with the stimulus.

--Those were the "shovel ready projects". Very few of them actually came to fruition. The "stimulus" is nothing more than a largely unspent slush fund used by the Democrat party to buy votes in the upcoming elections. Green technologies. Can anyone name one that is viable? Where did those BILLIONS come from? Your children and their grandchildren. Welcome to the one administration that spent more money in 18 months than has been spent by ALL administrations from the beginning of the country until O's inauguration.

-----

Reformed the nation's financial system with financial reform

-- That line was written by an educated Journalist? "reformed ... with reform? Kind of like writing a headline that says "the building was painted with paint."

Nationalizing banks and many financial firms, along with the healthcare industry and the auto industry is not what financial reform is about. We don't yet know how much that financial "reform" is going to cost us.

-----

Passed billions in tax cuts for Americans with the stimulus and the extension of the Bush-era tax cuts

-- Note that this "new" accomplishment has to repeat the "stimulus" line as if covering it once in the article wasn't good enough. But to the actual point of this bullet. TAX CUTS? WHAT TAX CUTS. There WERE NO TAX CUTS. The actual TAX CUT occurred ten years ago when the evil President Bush and the Republican led congress actually ENACTED the TAX CUTS. The current hubbub was about EXTENDING the already existing tax rates that had been in effect for the past ten years, or not. Note that initially, this administration campaigned AGAINST extending the Bush tax rates and promised to raise taxes. Up until only a few weeks ago, the administration was pushing to let the Bush era tax rates lapse, thereby causing the single largest tax increase on the US population in history. Suddenly, after the shellacking that the Democrat party received in November, the administration began calling what was initially "tax cuts for the rich", a "stimulus" that HAD to be passed to jump start the economy.

-- For the past ten years, the President and his party have openly and repeatedly stated that the "Bush tax cuts" were wrong, ill-timed, and should be repealed at all costs. Suddenly, that same party did an about-face and told us just a week or so ago that extending these tax rates was the ONLY way to stimulate the economy and were necessary. In two years, this same party will have to return to its original theme.

-- Are they bad for 10 years, good for only two, and then bad again? How does THAT work?

----

Expanded civil rights with the repeal of "Don’t Ask, Don't Tell.

-- Wow. That's an accomplishment? Turning the finest military in the world into a not-so-well-thought-out social experiment is good?

-----

Consider your source: MSNBC. A "news" organization bought and paid for by George Soros, one who has its anchors admitting to "goose bumps up and down their legs" when they think of Obama....

Of course, MSNBC didn't note THIS as one of those shining accomplishments from today's headlines:
(Reuters) - The U.S. government fell deeper into the red in fiscal 2010 with net liabilities swelling more than $2 trillion as commitments on government debt and federal benefits rose, a U.S. Treasury report showed on Tuesday.
-----

Another "accomplishment" ignored by MSNBC. Since O and his administration have been in office, the cost of a gallon of gasoline has quietly risen almost $2 a gallon. Remember that in a pre-election interview, he publicly stated that he would be quite happy to see gasoline rise to the $4 to $5 a gallon range.

He is also pushing his "cap and trade" agenda. This will be yet another tax upon you and I, to punish us for being successful, based on the "Global Warming Crisis" which for all intents and purposes has been fully revealed to be the sham that it always was. Cap and Trade is nothing more than an energy tax that can cripple the economy.

-----
Rush is an ex disc jockey that gets off on anger and hate.
Intelligent argument. Since the liberal mind is incapable of actually dealing in honest debate, it must resort to character assassination.

IF Rush is "only an ex disc jockey", why does his opinion cause you alarm?

You left out the other charge typically levied against him -- that he is "just an entertainer."

If THAT is the case, again, why does what he says bother you?

You cannot honestly, and with a straight face make the statement that he "gets off on anger and hate" unless you have never actually spent some time and listened to his program. Much of what he covers on a daily basis is directly out of the "mainstream" press, be it Television, Cable, or Print Media. For you to make your statement, you have simply come to be one of the many detractors who have never listened to the program, but would rather simply repeat a baseless charge against Rush that has been propagated by the Liberal Left.

By making your statement, you are also ignoring the fact that his single three-hour show has been the ONE radio show that has consistently grown and maintained its audience for the past 20 years. He consistently has the largest listening audience daily of any radio, TV, or cable show in existence. He didn't get there and maintain that spot by simply breeding on hate and anger.

Finally, when it comes to opinion pieces, Rush Limbaugh's accuracy on the items he comments upon has been proven to be correct nearly 99% of the time, this fact is continually tracked and noted by an independent opinion tracking audit.

-----

Lest we forget, under this administration, you must allow a total stranger to cop-a-feel just so you can board an airplane to fly. If you object, you will be arrested. A few years back, if a stranger grabbed you like that, THEY would be arrested.

Today, the Federal Communications Commission voted essentially for a Government take-over of the internet. Net Neutrality. The one last bastion of a "free press" is now under government control.

In six months, this administration could kill this hobby if its Federal Aviation Administration gets its way.

-----

A large number of "accomplishments" doesn't necessarily mean they were GOOD accomplishments. Those "accomplishments" caused a major blow to the Democrat party and sent Nancy Pelosi packing. They came within a hair of sending Harry Reid away, too.

John Dillinger had many accomplishments, as did John Wayne Gacy, Jeffery Dahmer, Ted Bundy, and Jack Kevorkian. Even Osama Bin Laden has had a couple of accomplishments. Will you sing their praises, too? After all, accomplishments are good, arent' they?

Aaron -- more CTRL-C than typing?

I guess that means if you can't simply repeat the democrat talking points, you aren't capable of cogent, independent thought. That everything has to be simply repeated or copied from someone else. You are perpetuating the liberal talking point that people who don't agree with them are mind numbed robots.

The only cut and paste was the original bulleted points from the MSNBC article.

Once again, you only prove the point that the liberal mindset is incapable of holding its own in a debate and must always immediately go to personal attacks and character assassination.

There is overwhelming evidence if one would take the time to do his own research that shows these administration "accomplishments" are NOT GOOD accomplishments.

Keep in mind that the crown jewel -- the nationalization of healthcare -- has recently had a federal judge declare one of its main tenets unconstitutional - that it violates the commerce clause of the Constitution and that Congress overstepped its authority. More litigation challenging the bill is in progress, all based on the bill being unconstitutional.

-----

And, this wonderful administration is in the process of suing the state of Arizona to prevent it from simply enforcing the SAME federal law regarding illegal immigration that the Obama administration has openly refused to enforce. The state, it appears under this administration, does not have the right to protect its citizens while the government continues to not defend our borders.

Funny how you all HATE the health care reform bill

You always talk about self responsibility and now if you dont have health insurance you will be forced to buy some.
Same with car insurance here

Thats great. ITs call self responsibilty.
Funny how all the republicans and tea baggers call it socialism

All of the companies that want a wavier from the health care law are the same ones your republican buddies have helped to rape us ove rhte years.

The only ones who benifit fron the private health care system we now have are insurance companies .

Only an idiot would reject this health care law.

no I need to re-state that

If you do not own your own hospital, and are not independently wealth and your against this then you havent done any research or..............................your an idiot

Why- we will all grow old and eventually we will all get sick

And when your real old guess what your insurance is ?

Medicade

wait, Isnt that goverment run healthcare?

Hey you brainiacs

how come no one over 65 can afford a private helthcare policy ?

yeah-those folks are gonna take care of you

wow, I get first crack at this??? I know more people than I can count, whose health insurance has increased GREATLY since this bill was passed.
You comparing this with medicare is a joke. What is the percentage of people over 65??? Now take that debt/loss number and extend it out over the rest of the population. Can you honestly say with a straight face that the government does anything efficiently??? Didn't think so.
Also, to compare this to auto insurance is just as ridiculous. You don't HAVE TO BUY auto insurance. You just can't drive. Let me tell you this friend, I don't have insurance and haven't had in some time. Why??? Because I CAN'T AFFORD IT!!!!! So now the government is telling me I must buy something I can't pay for and if I don't, I will be fined. Oh, now that makes a ton of sense and is at face value, unconstitutional. The government can not mandate you buy anything, it's outside of their constitutional power to do so.
The only way out of this mess is the free market. Right now the market is strangled by law that keeps you from buying insurance across state lines. Repeal that law. Throw in tort reform and now you've got something to work with.
Obviously you're a big fan of big government. Talk to some Limeys on here and ask them how that's working for them right now.
Oh, and incidentally, the reason nobody over 65 pays for their health insurance is because THEY DON'T HAVE TO!!!! My parents afforded their insurance OK, but once they turned 65, they dumped it for the obvious reason.
