Don Blankenship, and king coal, is a big time supporters of Shelley Moore Capito! And I'd say its just a matter of time before they find out that Capito knew what Blankenship was doing. And something else to think about how did Blankenship know when the "FEDERAL" inspectors were going to show up, and at what mine, like Upper Big Branch where an explosion 2010 killed 29 Massey miners. That"s why I wrote "Not good news for Shelley Moore Capito!"

I'm having trouble remembering whether Obama is supposed to be a Muslim, or a Communist? I've never heard of a Communist Muslim.

denver, "since we're getting off topic", might as well finish your thought. How do you tie Shelley Moore Capito to Don Blankenship? I'm not saying it doesn't hang together, just that you haven't supported your assertion.

I bet whenever Obama crawled into his bed friday night, he laughed and said to the Mrs., "We did it again, we created a monster (sequestration), and managed to blame it all on the republicans, and our stupid supporters really believe us " ! I am convinced that Obama supporters are the dumbest people yet ! Wake up from your Obama slumber ! The sequestration was Obama's baby...he never intended to make any compromises with anyone...if he did, why wasn't he in D.C. meeting with congress to come up with a deal?..Instead, he was traveling around the country on his typical blame tour !

Republican Rep. McKinley should have to explain to each person individually who loses his or her job because he stood by and put his political party above the very citizens of West Virginia that he was sworn to serve. Now, because of the insane inaction of McKinley and Congress, tens of thousands of American families will soon face financial ruin. The Republican Party has now put the United States of America at risk, both financially and to our never ending threat from terrorists. Rep. Mckinley has sullied himself and should be held accountable by the voters of his district. The financial pain will be felt throughout the MOV and surrounding areas in both Ohio and West virginia all in the name of protecting the super rich. How disgusting!!!

Here is another Interesting side note since we're getting off topic. A longtime subordinate of ex-Massey Energy chief Don Blankenship publicly implicated Blankenship for the first time Thursday in what appears to be a widespread corporate practice of "warning coal miners about surprise inspections."

Not good news for Shelley Moore Capito!

Here's an Interesting side note, did you know that Rep. David McKinley (R-WV), is the top recipient of coal cash for 2012, receiving over $200,000.

McKinley would take a chance at losing 700,000 America Jobs, because him and the republican leaders refuse to take a balanced approach that would cut wasteful spending on giveaways. Like corporate tax loopholes for Big Oil companies and the tax credits for companies that ship jobs overseas.

Whose fault is that?

I see that the teabaggers are here again,, criticizing the wrong person for the problem. How about directing your criticism towards the real problem, the speaker and his distinguished mob of naysayers refusing to compromise.

Gorrilla, Just because some obscure legislator makes a proposal to remove term limits on the office of president, is a TYPICIAL FOX NEWS TYPE of LIES and DISTORTION of the FACTS. However, because of OBAMA'S HIGH popularity and approval rating. I can understand your concern and YOUR TYPICAL RADICAL RIGHT WING attempts to distort the facts.... Although, I would seriously question the validity of your patroitism to country VS patroitism to RUSH LIMBAUGH TYPES.

gorilla - this is the ninth time rep. serrano has introduced similar legislation you refer to since 1997 (which includes four attempts under bush's presidency). for you to claim that obama may wish to seek a third term because of this, simply is not supported by any facts.

also (yours truly), sen. mitch mcconnell introduced similar legislation in 1995.

maybe dive a little further in your research and theory-creating skills?

Consider how well you could live if yo only had to earn 60% of what you spend. This is what our government does, borrowing the rest, primarily from China. Then, when someone suggests that this is not sustainable and you need to spend less, you say "Oh , No, we will not be able to live the same way we are with borrowed money" DUH !! Of course, we will have to cut some government jobs and some government program. But this will be mild compared to what will happen if we continue to use these borrowed dollars to buy votes.

pkrsbrgh; You can find "The LIBRARY of CONGRESS - Thomas" at *******

This site is the source for federal legislation information. It provides the status of all legislations: proposed, failed or passed, how your Senators and Congressmen voted. You can find out if your Reps. supported or opposed a Bill.

Look it up and learn!

Seriously? Multiple decades of running up debt and it's solely Obama's fault? McKinley is going to be in for a very rude awakening as debt finally crushes us.

We the people will be also, and deservedly so. We voted in these clowns that gave us instant gratification that we knew we'd have to pay for later.
