Our opinion:?Thompson then and now

October 2, 2013

“That’s never a good thing...I’ve run those numbers. (It) should save money, but you don’t. It costs a significant amount of money to wind down the government and money you haven’t budgeted......

Thank you WTO for calling out Thompson. The pressure from the right wing tea party was too great for him and now he will pay the price. Shutting down the government is highly irresponsible. Shame on you Thompson!

Thompson is no different that the rest of the idiots who failed to fund the government operations. The WTO finally called him and them out. This whole sordid matter is disgusting. Don't let any of them forget what they did when this is over, including GT.

Thompson is a hack. Start now to drum up someone who is credible -- not a tea party wacko or a single-issue abortion nice person but not too bright -- to run against him in the primary. The Repubs WERE favored in 2014. Now, no. Hillary is our next president. Thompson and the others in the GOP just guaranteed it. Thanks for nothing, jerks.

Republicans have a chance, and that chance is very narrow, to get to 51 seats in the Senate in 2014. I don't think the Republicans are going to get to 67 seats in the Senate and last time I checked that is what they would need to override a Presidential veto. Say what you want about the Affordable Care Act but it was voted on, signed into law, upheld by the Supreme Court, and the President was on the ballot 11 months ago and won. If people wanted to throw him out over the affordable care act they had their chance.

The cost of a shutdown pales in comparison to the cost of implementing Obamacare. It is simply another version of wealth redistribution by forcing the taxpayers to take reduced healthcare in order to expand SOME care to all. I'am sure China doesn't mind lending us the money for the subsidies to make it seem to be lower cost insurance.

I do however question the wisdom of having the fight now rather than waiting until after the 2014 elections when the Rebubs were favored to gain seats.

I’m feed up with the whole bunch of them, Democrats and Republicans. They (Congress) pass a law without ever reading them, he (President) signs it into law and they (Supreme Court) confirm it to be constitutional. We (average citizen) are told how wonderful it is for us, yet they (Congress, President and Supreme Court) are exempted from it.

The President allows four of our citizens to be murdered, Congress allows us to be un-constituently to be spied on and the Supreme Court sits on their fat duffs.

Now we have “Joe Citizen” who is both a Democrat and a Republican putting their party ahead of the good of the nation. These certainly are sad and dark days.

Well then, guess who, along with the 534 other representatives and senators, doesn't need to be re-elected.
