    FINALLY someone who will stand up for us!

    There was never a chance that the benefits would not be paid. All he did was to stand and deliver the idea that YOU VOTED FOR PAY GO now live up to your vote. Pay go says that we must find the money to pay for new ideas before we put it in place. Not just throw the money out and not worry about the tab later.
    As he said, this is .003% of the Fed spendature and if we can't find that much money, we will never pay for anything again. This is a hot topic but if it were not something that would get us old folks mad, children of old folks mad,and doctors mad the masses of this country would continue to sit idle and let Congress run us over. Dems and Repubs.

    I say, since he is not going to run for the Senate again, let him run for Pres.
    It would be nice for someone besides Sarah to show some balls.

    Before we give this old man too much credit did he not vote against the pay as you go bill in the first place?

    He probably did. As soon as one politician does something right for once) it seems to absolve them of their past sins. This is a major factor why we have so many apathetic voters and voting in this country. I would be willing to bet that Bunnings pockets have been lined with special interests money just like all the rest. He is tainted just like all of the other career politicians. Don't buy into the knight in shinning armor shinola ever.

    The guy holds up the process for his "principles" for over a week and then he relents and lets the bill go as it was without any admendments. What principles did he show? If you want this idiot to run for president what war do you have in mind to promote? We need no more actors in office. We have had enough and they sucked. That last talking head needs to have his picture put on a rolled up $100 bill. That way the coke heads wouldn't have any doubt who made it easier for the smugglers to get their product in the country. You guys seemed to have forgotten that little fact. Dan

    Dan, You know why he did what he did, and to a majority of Americans he is praised for atleast making the congress think about what they promised and signed: Pay as you Go. The only reason he gave in, was the number of people it affected.

    If he was a believer in pay as you go why did he vote against it? The majority of Americans see him for what he is.....a political hypocrite.

    Pay as you go was just passed to give the Democrats cover. They say they are for cutting spending but when it comes to action they move to exempt their spending bills from pay as you go just like they did with the bill that extended unemployment. Why does the bill include Federal highway spending and money to extend satellite TV to rural areas? Is that necessary spending? Why don't the Dems want to follow their own law?
