Mr. Bills, representing todays totally out-of-touch-with-reality GOtP, doesn’t stand a chance against Amy Klobuchar. She represents real Minnesota values, like how hard work is worthy of economic reward instead of being a vehicle for redistributing wealth from working class Americans into the already corpulent bank accounts of the oligarchy.
Now, who’s Al Franken gonna send home a loser?

If one thinks it appropriate to help the Senate continue to avoid its reponsibitlity of passing a budget, then vote for Senator Klobuchar. If one thinks the Senate should do its duty to live within a budget, then vote for Mr. Bills. Senator Klobuchar steps in lock step with Senator Reid, her niceness notwithstanding.

Perhaps you could do a little research and inform us how often the GOtP has utilized the filibuster to block meaningful and progressive economic legislation that would boost our national economy, Mr. Buelow. I can do it for you, if you prefer.

Perhaps you could tell us why the Senate has not passed a budget.

Refer to my post above for the answer. It really isn’t so hard to figure out, Mr. Buelow. Unless you want it to be, that is. Apparently, you don’t want to find any information on your own. Are you afraid?

Blaming the Republicans for Harry Reid’s Senate failure to pass a budget required by law is disingenuious at best. Perhaps you could talk to Senator Conrad – he can clue you in – you are a Democrat Party big shot after all.
Again, perhaps you can tell us why the Senate has failed to pass a budget. Voting for Senator Klobuchar supports more of the same since she votes with Harry.

If one thinks it’s appropriate to help the Senate avoid it’s responsibility to pass a budget, vote republican! After all, they’re the ones stonewalling economic progress just because they don’t like the guy in the White House.

The Senate voted down 99-0 President Obama’s 2013 budget. The House voted it down 414-0. Don’t the Democrats like the guy in the White House?

There is a huge gray area involved regarding republican resolutions to the bill. I wonder why you refuse to include that into your cherry-picked numbers. Well, not really.
Ha ha. Fact. No. Cherry. Picking. Required.

OK, Dave. You don’t want to face the fact that congressional gridlock is primarily the result of republican obstructionism. I get that. Now, let me ask you a simple question. Who said this:
“The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.”
And why do you think the most important thing to achieve as far as this person was concerned was to revive the American economy? Do you need me to tell you?

Typical response. You are a good Democrat Party spokesperson. Change the subject.

Change the subject? I’ve responded directly to the subject! You’re the one who refuses to discuss it for whatever reason.

Reading what rebel and Dave have to say about politics just proves my point that political parties are just out for themselves and not for the people that they represent. Look at how juvenile these two are acting. This is why our government is sooooooooo screwed up. Once again these people are voted in to respresent and do what is best for the people of their states. Not to vote because that is what their party wants.
Also look at all the bills/laws that have been passed. Everyone of them have riders to go along with them that either help one party or the other out and have nothing to do with helping us out. I’ll vote yes for the law if you vote yes on this law for me.
I’m sure when it came to pass the bill for their salaries the government had no problem making sure that passed. But they just can’t seem to come up with a simple budget. Like I said before our governement needs a MAJOR overhaul. A 236 constitution in my eyes just won’t work with the people that we have today.

It has been years since the Democrat controlled Senate has passed a budget. They have neglected this requirement. Senator Kent Conrad heads up the Senate Budget Committee and has failed to do his job. http://reason.com/blog/2012/04/23/sen-kent-conrad-senate-dems-punt-on-prod
Everyone blames the other State’s Senator but not their own. Senator Klochubar may be a fine Senator, but she works for and backs Senator Harry Reid. Failing to even bring a proposed budget to the floor of the Senate is a scandal. If a Minnesotan thinks this is behavior should be continued, then by all means vote for Senator Klobuchar. If not, and you believe that the Senate should fulfil its obligation and produce a budget, vote for Mr. Bills.
WHO CARES!!! All politicains are corrupt and could really careless about the people they represent. They care more about lining their pockets and getting kick backs then they do about doing what is right. It’s time to do away with this party system in government. Government officials need to be voting for what is right not what their party wants them to vote. Does it really make sense to pass bills/laws just because one party wants it and it will tick off the other. The politicians aren’t the ones getting screwed over, it’s us. They get their pay checks, gas for vehicles, travel, and health care paid for by us but they seem to never listen to anything the people have to say.
There are a lot of things that need to be fixed but never seemed to get fixed due to this party system always arguing with each other. Our welfare system and health care need to have a major overhaul, but will never happen because of this bickering with each other.
