    The exact same things that the Democrats have done for the last 65+ YEARS !!!

    Democrats are TRYING to BLAME Republicans for the FAILURES of the Socialist / Communist / Liberal / Marxist Democrats of the last 65+ YEARS !!!

    Democrats have to recognize that since the 73rd Congress in 1933

    ... for a MAJORITY of THE LAST 65 YEARS

    ... Democratic Houses of Representatives and Democratic Senates have

    ... CONTROLLED the nation and the President.

    A TOTAL of 38 Sessions

    ... with Democrats in CONTROL for 28 of those!

    WE need to inform/TELL our political representatives that WE NEED TO PASS a Constitutional Amendment for the LINE ITEM VETO.

    This will keep the SPECIAL INTEREST GARBAGE from being attached to valuable legislation.

    If Congress wants to give the president that power, they will have to pass a constitutional amendment, Supreme Justice John Paul Stevens said. "If there is to be a new procedure in which the president will

    play a different role in determining the text of what may become a law, such change must come not by legislation but through the amendment procedures set forth in Article V of the Constitution," Stevens said,

    on June 25th, 1998.

    IF your special interest is SO valuable, why do you have to HIDE it in valuable legislation?

    So, with them REFUSING to PASS the Line Item Veto, in reality, the House and Senate have REALLY been controlling the country!!

    AND, with the CURRENT Senate and Congress having the WORST approval rating in HISTORY, hopefully we will see a LOT of changes after the general elections.

    A recent Reuters poll is out and Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have pulled an upset: They have managed to make George Walker Bush twice as popular as CONGRESS.

    RECENTLY - - JUST 8% of Likely Voters now say the DEMOCRATICALLY CONTROLLED Congress is doing a good or excellent job.

    Democrats generally believe in heavy fines for honest work, while rewarding sloth and indulgence.

    Do YOU think that people should be able to do absolutely nothing productive and get government hand-outs for sloth and indulgence - healthcare, tobacco, alcohol, drugs, STDs, etc. ??

    Do YOU want to have YOUR MONEY TAKEN from YOU and YOUR FAMILY to FINANCE these people ???

    .

    JUNIOR U. S. Senator Obama did NOT complete his FIRST term in office

    ... with just 143 days of ACTUAL experience

    ... HE decided

    ... that he DESERVED to be THE President of THE United States of America !!!

    .

    TAXES ... TAXES ... AND ... MORE TAXES ... are what is driving American corporations to downsize in America and expand in "friendlier" countries !!!

    He has kept it private so people can have access to it. If it were socialized we'd have little access and rationing. I want to make my own decisions about health care- I do not want congress deciding when I can go to the doctor!

    You assume that government should have anything to do with this.... I do not want them involved in my health care.

    The VA is a government run medical system, how's that working out?
