"This poll was conducted by telephone October 1-2, 2013 among 1,021 adults nationwide. Data collection was conducted on behalf of CBS News by Social Science Research Solutions of Media, PA. Phone numbers were dialed from samples of both standard land-line and cell phones."

"Most Americans want compromise. Majorities think the President and the Democrats in Congress and the Republicans in Congress should compromise in order to come to an agreement on the budget."

Compromise or Stick to Positions?

Pres. Obama & Dems should compromise 76%

Cong. Reps should compromise 78%

Pres. Obama & Dems should stick to positions 21% 18

Cong. Reps should stick to positions 18%

Poll Facts: EVERYBODY should quit posturing and have the conversation needed to get things done in DC. EOS

More posts from the liar in chief, bdgi. What about your post on Will? Gonna admit it was a spoof just like the one Fox news put on concerning the Muslim museum? Typical uniformed righty.

We can be sure about one thing, Obama is either golfing or in Las Vegas making political speeches. He shoves his views down Americans throats and then goes play.

Hey, everyone, BDGI is telling a pants on fire lie again. His story about Will did not happen. It is completely false. It is out there to check out. Another false statement put out on facebook probably by other irrational wingers to fool the public. And our liar in chief, BDGI was right there to gobble it up.

You still don't know what you are talking about, bdgi. You can only ridicule, denigrate, make fun of, or express yourself in an inappropriate manner. I have told many people to come to the blog and view your rantings. You can only lie, bloviate, and make false claims. Go Ahead, bdgi, continue with your out of state rhetoric of hatred. Only a coward operates in the manner that you do. I am sure your favorite color is "yellow".

As long as we are talking about Harry Reid's comment and the distortions being put forth, lets talk about something that needs no distortion. How about the cuts to the cancer research program voted in by these same white coated Republicans? Well, they voted to cut upwards of 1.5 Billion dollars from that same program. Actually, as far back as 2010, Eric Cantor himself, proposed a 1.3 billion dollar cut to this program. Hypocrites all. Now, that is factual, righties.

Well, well, whistler, why are you always claiming things negative about us liberals. Could it be that you know that most all of the garbage the Republicans are putting forth is just that- garbage. Maybe you just have no facts to support their lies. Or, maybe, that is the way you are.

So, BDGI, you were talking about BC/BS of San Francisco? Wow, you are still fibbing on it. Thier rates have to be approved by the state first. They have not gotten the approval. Is this the same BC/BS that has doubled it cash reserves in the last seven years to almost 4 Billion Dollars? you are just bloviating.

Did you realize that 72% of those polled in the CBS poll disapprove of shutting down the federal government over differences on the Affordable Care Act. Republicans are the biggest liars of all.

It is amazing that BDGI is so knowledgeable about the rates. Hmmm, BC/BS is at 18% increase for next year. Wonder where you got that figure since they have to get approval of their rate increases and to this point have not gotten that approval. You must be have a gift? I kinda liked what the Republicans said about the HCA program for kids. Boy, have they changed. They just cut 1.55 billion dollars from the research program in the past year and prior to that have proposed cuts of over a billion dollars to that research program. Hypocrites. Now, I hear they are concerned about the food programs for kids and moms, but they just cut billions from those programs: Hypocrites . What other programs will the liars and terrorist be concerned about. Oh, by the way, 78% of those polled in the CBS poll think the Republicans should compromise. Also, more people blame the REpublicans than the democrats.

"We're not finished committing suicide here," said Republican strategist John Weaver, a veteran of the McCain and Huntsman campaigns. "We also have the opportunity to kill immigration reform, and the odds are that we will do that, just to make sure we're the angry-white-man party."

That actually is better than the 22% increase they have had in past years. At least they did not have obamacare to deal with. So much for what BDGI knows about health care.

"Now that we have made the jump, set ourselves on fire and made the jump, we are now in the valley of death," Nunes said. "We decided to go into the valley. We have to run together. We have to stay together in order to fight the onslaught that's coming from the White House."

"It's not the tea party caucus. It's a lemming caucus. These guys who meet privately. They are always conspiring. It's mostly just about power. And it's just gotten us nowhere," he said, adding: "The Democrats are giddy about this behind closed doors."--- Now there is a factual quote.

I believe the term is called Blackmail, as in what the Republicans are doing with the piecemeal bills to fund only parts of the government. It is not government, it is terrorism. Using the NIH programs to get your way on the health care program. obviously , republicans have no shame or integrity.

Great source of factual fiction: The Washington Post. Not the bastion of honesty or journalistic integrity. But, it certainly fits into dusty's misconceptions.

"House GOP Pleads For Funding For Kids With Cancer After Canceling Research For Kids With Cancer" Did not realize that, did you. Since 2010, Congressional Republicans have proposed to reduce funding for NIH by over a billion dollars. Even Mr. Cantor, who said he supports the NIH, proposed a 1.3 Billion dollar cut in their funding for the NIH. Hypocrites. Oh, and those congressional doctors in white gowns on TV, they all voted in favor of cutting funding for the NIH. Typical of the liars the Republicans have become.

Lets go further to opening the WWII memorial for veterans because Republicans love the veterans. Why, even Michele Bachman spoke at the memorial to show that they will open that memorial because Republicans care. Seems like every time the Wall Street Journal prints something negative to the Republicans about the Shut down, the Repubs pass a measure or have a photo op somewhere. But, they did not have a photo op when they voted against bills to support the veterans. Yep, they did. Red, white, and blue REpublicans are not what they say they are. oh, look it up.
