Ryan draws Obama into veto war to show voters what’s at stake in 2016

by Dave Boyer  |  published on January 27, 2016

President Obama’s last year in office is shaping up as the Year of the Veto.

After vetoing only seven bills over the first seven years of his presidency, Mr. Obama has vetoed two measures already in January.

What’s more, the White House has issued veto threats against all five pieces of legislation to come out of the House since Jan. 1, from a measure to cut “burdensome” government regulations to a bill that would give Congress greater oversight of the Iranian nuclear deal. A House vote on the latter is scheduled for the week of Feb. 1.

    A great example of true leadership. This is the Republican Party at its finest. Taxpayer money wasted week in and week out, month after month, not getting one DAMN thing accomplished for the good of the country, just taking votes to score points with their base. And THIS is what the taxpayers are paying them for!!!!! And the country goes further down the toilet thanks to tactics like this. Thanks Ryan! Thanks Republicans!

    What happened to jobs? What happened to the alternative to ObamaCare? What happened to tax reform? Every promise made by Republicans in the last election has been broken. NOTHING has been accomplished. A veto is not an accomplishment!

    Hey bobnstuff try telling the truth. When the bills don’t pass both house, and senate, you should be asking Harry Reid why. I live in Nevada and good old Harry brags about how he uses his influence to make sure the bills he doesn’t like, aren’t brought to a vote. Nothing can get done if bills aren’t allowed to be voted on in the senate. Yet alone reaching the Presidents desk. The two useless men you speak of are O’bama and Reid !!!!

    It’s to bad that the republicans can’t work with the democrats for the good of the country. No finding common ground. It’s fight fight fight and the voters loose every time. I know that people will say the the democrats are “My way or the Highway” but that’s a lie. They will stop at letting the republicans destroy everything that has been done in the last seven years but if you throw them a bone they will cave more often then not. On the other hand the republicans can’t even work with each other to get anything done. They are obsessed with bringing Obama down and can care less about anything else. Where is the VA reform bill? Where is the immigration reform bill. where is the campaign finance reform bill. They can hold endless hearings on Hillary but where are the hearings for the children dying from gun shots, the homeless Vets, or even the fact that the bees are dying and could create food shortages in our country.

      It’s too bad the DEMOCRATS can’t work with the republicans on anything. It’s ALWAYS THEIR WAY OR NO WAY WITH THE DEMOCRATS, and that’s NOT a lie, it’s FACT not fiction, fella. The democrats have destroyed this country with their ungodly, atheistic, immoral and perverted ways. Democrats don’t ever want to find common ground nor compromise on anything. You’ve either been hiding under some rock or it could be that you have rocks between those ears of yours, but you spinning this, and making out Obama and the democrats smelling like a rose is revolting, if not downright repulsive. The democrats are guilty as sin and it’s their fault this country is going down all because the democrats want to keep the borders open and flood this country with illegal alien invaders for the shear and sole purpose of having them vote democrat. There is no denying that!!! Democrats are a despicable lot.

      And yeah, Obama and quite a few democrats including the Clinton’s and Kerry need to be sitting behind bars and rotting. The republicans have tried and tried to rectified situations when Harry Reid ruled the senate and got nowhere with over 300 bills stacked on his desk that never saw the light of day. And yeah, Reid and Pelosi are still calling the shots, don’t delude yourself on this neither!!!

      • bobnstuff

        Did you know that you can watch congress on C-span. If you educated yourself about how congress works you would find that 300 bills stacked up is not only normal but is a bit lower the average. If you paid attention you also would see that Democrats are far more likely to vote for republican bills then the other way around. If you knew history you would know that this administration has less scandal then most. I know I’m wasting my time but please go look at what is really going on instead of what you are told is going on. Just so you know most Democrats are Christians and in fact 85% of people in Congress are Christians. By law or government is to be religion neutral. First Amendment. I wonder if you even know where to find the bills that are in congress or check who voted for what. If you want the truth about things you go to a prime source not the right wing media.

        • Franie

          IN case you haven’t heard, there is NO right wing media anymore. The only hope in this bastion of liberal, progressive democrat leaning media, including FOX NEWS, is …. is ???.

          All I know is that 300+ hundred bills stacked up is NOT NORMAL business as usual prior to Reid and his demanding and insolent disregard for the system on how our government should work. That is a hell of a lot of bills that never saw the light of day.

          You are sadly mistaken, thinking that democrats vote for ANYTHING that would sit well with republicans, for democrats do not know how to negotiate nor COMPROMSE when it comes to making government work.

          Just what do you mean if I knew history I would know that this administration has less scandal than most? This IS THE MOST SCANDALOUS ADMINISTRATION TO DATE!!!

          When you say most democrats are Christians, do you actually believe that crap??? If that were indeed true or even fact, then I hate to inform you of reality in that case. If democrats align themselves with Christianity, believing what they do, then they are HYPOCRITES.


          Just to sum up your ridiculousness, democrats are a despicable lot and the sole reason why government doesn’t work. They are what is wrong with America, especially with their political correctness crap. They are a pox on our God fearing society. Democrats have aligned themselves with all that is unGodly, and if you look around, you will see the protective Hand of God has been taken off our country, thanks to the democrats.

          • bobnstuff

            Reagan had 136 members of his administration indited Obama has had non. I don’t count fake scandals, made up by the media. There have been time when there have over 700 backed up. you see I know how to fact check. You need to learn just how congress work. The only reason there are not more backed up right now is that the republicans don’t write bills.

            I’m sure you are an expert on the media and that’s why you know there is no right wing media. I wouldn’t want to tell Rush that he is a liberal. Glenn might not like it either. Mister Savage might also find your belief a little upsetting. If a media outlet says anything true or not that doesn’t line up with the RWNJ point of view they become left wing. That’s because even Fox will tell the truth from time to time.

            Christian Democrats, I guess you don’t know much about the Church. Take the Catholic Church, mostly Democrats. You do know that Christ is a liberal. His views on social responsibility pretty much prove that.

            Our founding fathers made it a point to keep religion out of our government. It was so important to them that is the first amendment.

            As far as Democrats working with Republicans, I’m from a state with one republican senator and one democrat for a senator. They work together all the time. It’s not all that unusual. If you look at the bills in congress right now and look at the cosponsors you will see that most have both republicans and democrats listed.

            Just because you don’t know something doesn’t make it a lie and just because you see it in the media or coming off the lips of a politician doesn’t make it true.

          • Franie

            Bob, please don’t delude yourself. Fact check my fanny! You can’t even write coherent English to where I can at least understand you. What the hell is “RWNJ”??

            It’s laughable that you mention the Catholic Church being mostly democrat. Democrats don’t tithe and they certainly don’t give to charity. Any democrat that goes to church and votes for the democrat candidates, they are nothing but hypocrites. You cannot vote democrat and be a true Catholic. Democrats believe in and fight for abortion rights. THAT smacks God’s laws right in the face. Fact check that! And Christ a liberal?? You’re loony. Christ has professed and promoted the Ten Commandments all His life. Ever hear of “Thou shalt not kill”? How about “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors goods”?? Or how about “Thou shalt not bear false witness”??? Democrats break those commandments on a daily basis with fighting for abortion, raising taxes higher and higher…Hillary and Bernie both said they were going to raise our taxes to the tune of BILLIONS OF DOLLARS if they’re elected, and democrats wouldn’t know what truth is if it ran them over. Look at Obama….you listen to what he says and watch what he does. 180* out of sync. He has never spoken the truth about anything and I challenge you to give me an example of what he has said and done that actually is something good that has come to pass.

            Please, don’t be insulting our Lord with calling Him a liberal. As far as I see it, liberals are going to pay dearly come Judgement Day. Sin does not sit well with my God.

          • bobnstuff

            RWNJ Right wing nut job, are you new here?
            There are Democrats that are pro life and Catholics that are pro choice. Have you seen the New Pope?
            Love thy neighbor as thy self. does that ring a bell?
            Do unto others as you would have others do unto you, It is harder for a camel to go throw the eye of a needle then for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Sell all your belongings and follow me. So as you have done for the least of my people you have done for me. He who is without sin cast the first stone. Any of this stuff seem formiliar to you? I’m the new covenant. You need to read the Gospel.

            Just where do you get your information about Democrats from? Half my family are Democrats and they are the ones that are the most giving. My oldest spent three years in VISTA working with the Job Core, My middle child did Teach for America. Both are Democrats. Jimmy Carter is one of the most Christian men in the country, a Democrat. Mister Rodgers was a Democrat.

            Because of the ACA I was able to go from full time to part time and be home to take care of grandson and my wife who could not have gotten insurance if I left my job. Because of the improvement in the economy my 401K is worth something so I could be where I was needed, It’s value of my savings had dropped to 50% in 2008-2009. Because of the leadership of our President we have no body bags coming in everyday with our young men in them. The list goes on.
