82% of the House of Representatives ran for re-election
90% of those won re-election
Only 23% of the (total) House will consist of new members
Of the 33 Senate seats up for grabs,
22 of them were sought by incumbants and 21 of those won.
Only 12% of the Senate will consist of new members
Talk about no change in Washington. Whatever happened to all the cries about voting out all incumbants?
I think know. Voter turnout in the primaries is typically very low. I was the only voter in the room when I went. Come the general election, voters are faced with the devil they know and the devil they don't know. Either that or they think that all incumbants but their own should be voted out. It just doesn't work that way. Apparently we need a great deal more pain before we put our votes where our mouths are.
WAIT TIL OBAMA DEATHCARE KICKS IN WITH DEATHPANELS, TAXES, MEDICARE CUTS,
SERVICES CUT AND HIGHER RATES! THEN SINGLE PAYER HEALTHCARE! OH THAT'S HAPPENING ALREADY!
FINALLY THE MEDIA CAN'T SAY THE RIGHT WAS LYING ABOUT OBAMA'S LIES AND COVERUP!
THE ELECTION PROVED THE MEDIA IS BIAS AND HELPED HIM GET ELECTED AND HALF THE COUNTRY
IS FULL OF LEFT WING LIBERAL ANTI AMERICAN SOCIALIST! LET'S SPLIT THE COUNTRY IN TWO AND ROMNEY
BE OUR PRESIDENT AND YOU DOPE LIBERALS CAN HAVE FING OBAMA FOR YOURSELFS!
Businesses that need a bailout have been mismanaged for years. Rather than future bailouts let them go bankrupt , stockholders and those who either worked for or manage a failing company should take the hit NOT THE TAX PAYERS. If the business is worth anything someone will scoop it up and rebuild it in a better way
Perfect example US Post Office can deliver mail every other day. One side of town on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and the other on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday. Saves 50% of mail carriers, 50% of vehicles, 50% of fuel with the added benefit of 50% less pollution. We all call it snail mail anyway and anything of importance is sent by Fed Ex or UPS overnight anyway.
Government is a business and should be run by business people not politicians who are egotistical and self promoting with little or no care for the position they are elected to. I regret we have re-elected a politician over a business man
Really? Not a mention of the fact that the US spends over half of the entire world's defense budget? That we still run a military designed to fight a global superpower when the overwhelmingly largest threats need to be handled through strategic intelligence operations? That we have enough nuclear weapons to obliterate the world multiple times over but we keep building new ones every year? No mention of the billions given to pharmaceutical companies every year to develop new drugs that they then turn around and sell for absurd profits, never repaying a dime of the reasearch money?
Instead you point out a less than $500 event used to convince nerds to visit the library more often?
Lets also add Obama to the list. The biggest, worthlest waist of all. I am debt free, including my home.
I made provisions and sacrifices in my life to do this, along with putting 2 kids through medical school. Before you say that I'm some rich Dr., I'm not. Blue collar worker (non-union by choice) with a combined income of less than 100k. That being said, I expect our government to do the same. I will be standing on the side lines watching for the next 4 years while you wonder why in the hell you voted this Chicago gangster back into the Whitehouse. Thanks alot Ohio and Florida.
I've had it with the liberal media, especially on this website. I'm switching to yahoo as my home page so I don't give msn my page views anymore, from which they profit. If you feel the same way do so as well and boycott msn.
Socialism is not the answer and the greed, envy, and class warfare Obama is sewing, together with his reckless overspending, are tearing our country apart and sending us down a path to ruin. Shame on you people who voted for him. You are dooming our young people and children to pay for your excesses and overspending.
examples of government waste...The TSA, DEA, Homeland Security, Foreign Aid, useless wars, 50% of the Pentagons budget, Space Programs, Fraud in programs for the poor, war on drugs, farm subsudies and the list goes on. That was off the top of my list...
And the total comes to 10 trillion dollars of pork spending ok'ed by the republican congress...
and you idiots put all of those morons right back in for part II of fleecing America...
Hope you are all proud of yourselves because you are going to pay and pay big time for being so
The elderly can have Medicare Part B
Heck free education and forgive student loans too !
Just don't be puttin Non-productive wars on credit cards and any society can be productive and prosperous.
Re-investigate 911 @ AE911 before spending ----5 Trillion---- plus dollars !
