    President Obama says that "the American People voted for divided government, they didn't vote for a dysfunctional government" so why doesn't someone ask the president about the quote and why when the democrats controlled the house and Senate with a super majority they were unable or unwilling to pass a budget for the 2 years they were in control, the senate now going on 3 years. To fault a divided government for the current problems, when we had the same problems under a single party rule is hypicritical.

    I hope so, providing these communities has forgotten from about how they've been sidelined this far. Health care coverage, and the fact that Obama didn't fight hard enough with the GOP regarding the debt ceiling. Surrender to the GOP? Never, the President should has used the power to defeat them.
