The Democrats only controlled the Senate for 133 days. About 4 months. You have bought into that tired Conservative lie.
 Quoting: Major_Payne




Dems had majority control of both houses of Congress from January of 2007 to January of 2011. Thats four years my friend, learn how to do math.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1721958



With the Filibuster rule (which Republicans can't seem to get along without) you now need 60 votes to pass anything through the Senate not 51. My math is just fine.
 Quoting: Major_Payne




Republicans are the only ones who use the filibuster? Oh dear you are truly an idiot. The Dems used it every single chance they got before they got control of the Senate.

Not to mention, Harry Reid & Co. foisted Obamacare on the people by using reconciliation & not a real vote.

Excellent point.

It's possible the Democrats could win the presidency, the Senate and even the House six weeks from now and their first order of business should be to GET RID OF the extremely abused filibuster rule.

The founders never intended that 60 votes had to be required in the Senate to do anything. That's bullshit!

The Democrats NEVER really had control of the Senate because Joe Liebershit, although he caucused with them, is not a Democrat in any way. There were also several Blue Dog Democrats who weren't on board for much of anything. If the Democrats had been in control of the Senate then we would have gotten a much better healthcare bill.

Obama has issued more unconstitutional executive orders than any president in history in a run-around Congress.

Obama has appointed more Czars with no regulatory oversight whatsoever than any other president in history.

Sounds like a dictator to me, lets try him for treason & send him to Leavenworth.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1721958

Besides, everything Obama has said he was going to do was just plain WRONG so I would hope they try to block as much of his crap as they can.

But he had two years to pass ANYTHING and what did he do?

Re: Republicans and Fox News are engaging in treason
Look what the traitorous bastards did YESTERDAY. They shafted veterans again.


So yesterday, in one final vile act before adjournment for the elections, Senate Republicans used a point of order to block passage of the Veterans Jobs Corps proposal that would have provided a modest $1 billion to hire veterans to tend federal lands or gain priority in hiring at police and fire departments. The bill was crafted with bipartisan support. 58 Senators supported the bill, but Republicans put together the 40 votes needed to block its passage.

Why shaft the very veterans whose service politicians sanctimoniously celebrate at every occasion?

Is it because unemployed veterans are part of Mitt Romney's scorned 47 percent?

Re: Republicans and Fox News are engaging in treason
In his book Do Not Ask What Good We Do, author Robert Draper details a meeting which took place the night of President Obama’s inauguration, in which Republican Congressional leaders made a pact to “show united and unyielding opposition to the president’s economic policies” in order to regain power, and eventually take the White House in 2012. The facts surrounding this meeting are not in doubt; former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says he was “glad and honored to be part of it.”

There are those who would defend this meeting, as Gingrich did, by saying that any political party would work to regain power, but this wasn’t a case where they got together and said “Let’s make sure we get as many of our policies enacted as we can,” or “Let’s make sure we block these things that we really disagree with, that we think would be bad for the country,” they conspired to block everything. If you need a smoking gun, check their record, since that meeting, of voting against things that were their own ideas just because President Obama decided to support them.

I think some people need to look up the definition of treason and traitor and then read United States Code and the US Constitution(Article III). Then you can render an "opinion" on who is doing what. Remember though, crimes against common sense don't usually end with punishment.

Senate Republicans block Murray’s $1 billion veterans jobs bill

Posted by Kyung M. Song

WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans on Wednesday blocked Sen. Patty Murray’s $1 billion legislation to create a jobs corps for veterans, invoking a budget rule to kill what they contend is an unproven and unaffordable program.

The 58-40 vote to waive a procedural budget motion fell two votes short. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid had already postponed the vote from last Friday, when Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, the top Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, said the bill violates the Budget Control Act.

Five Republicans sided with all 53 members of the Democratic caucus to override the GOP objection, but that was insufficient. Sixty votes were needed.

Sen. Patty Murray

The Veterans Jobs Corp Act would have trained and employed veterans for jobs in forests, wildlife refuges, parks, cemeteries and other public lands. Murray proposed paying for the $1 billion tab over five years in part by collecting delinquent taxes from Medicare providers and suppliers and from individuals with more than $50,000 in unpaid taxes.

Speaking on the Senate floor before the vote, Murray said the GOP’s motion in effect told veterans the nation has spent enough money on them. The Washington Democrat, who chairs the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, said the bill incorporated many ideas from Republicans to improve its chance for passage.

In a statement, Murray denounced the Republican blockade:

“It’s both shocking and shameful that Republicans today chose to kill a bill to put America’s veterans back to work. At a time when one in four young veterans are unemployed, Republicans should have been able, for just this once, to put aside the politics of obstruction and to help these men and women provide for their families.

“But this vote is stark reminder that Senator McConnell and Senate Republicans are willing to do absolutely anything to fulfill the pledge he made nearly two years ago to defeat President Obama. It doesn’t matter who gets in their way or which Americans they have to sacrifice in that pursuit, even if it’s our nation’s veterans.

Congress is scheduled to adjourn this week until after the election. Murray’s spokesman said the bill is unlikely to be resurrected this yearhiding

Re: Republicans and Fox News are engaging in treason
In law, treason is the crime that covers some of the more extreme acts against one's sovereign or nation. Historically, treason also covered the murder of specific social superiors, such as the murder of a husband by his wife. Treason against the king was known as high treason and treason against a lesser superior was petty treason. A person who commits treason is known in law as a traitor.
Oran's Dictionary of the Law (1983) defines treason as "...[a]...citizen's actions to help a foreign government overthrow, make war against, or seriously injure the [parent nation]." In many nations, it is also often considered treason to attempt or conspire to overthrow the government, even if no foreign country is aiding or involved by such an endeavour.
