Why is the GOP so against voting? Because they know the more of us that vote the less likely they will win.  http://tmblr.co/Zu19jp1T8eWPB

Five Reasons to Vote Out North Carolina Rep Virginia Foxx    
1. She believes colleges are for profit, not for education.
Well, in all fairness, that may be a bit of an oversimplification…”Congress doesn’t need to make college affordable.”
2. She believes students should pay their debt and our debt too.
Her bill, The Smarter Solutions for Students Act, would allow Stafford Loans to be reevaluated each year. If the economy is bad, a student has a harder time finding a job and yes, according to her bill, your student loan interests rates could double all at the same time. 
3. Who’s responsible for the inflation of student debt?
Why, it’s the students, of course. 
4. It’s not like she was bought by for-profit college lobbyists or anything.
Oh wait…”Two of the Foxx’s three top donors in the last election cycle were the political action committee of APSCU, the for-profit colleges’ main trade association ($10,000), andBridgepoint Education ($9,000), whose record is so bad that Senator Tom Harkin, chairman of the Senate HELP Committee, has called the institution “a scam.”  In her first year as chair of the House subcommittee addressing higher education, Foxx received at least $48,668 from people or PACs associated with for-profit colleges.”
5. Okay, okay it’s true. She’s done more than bend to the will of for-profit lobbyists.
She also voted NO on the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act. So there’s that.

It’s the one year anniversary of the Government Shutdown. Let’s recall what assholes they all were.

by TeaPartyCat ()

One year ago on October 1, 2013, the GOP forced a government shutdown to stop Obamacare from going into effect.

Now if they had just let it happen they could’ve really exploited the real problems with Healthcare.gov, but instead they drew attention to how strongly they feel that poor and sick people should be denied access to health insurance.

Sure, they claimed Obamacare would be a huge disaster, but after the website was fixed Obamacare met and exceeded its enrollment goals, as well as helping to control healthcare inflation and give people financial security if they got sick.

Don’t believe me? Maybe you should read this:

7 Charts That Prove Obamacare Is Working

One year after healthcare.gov crashed, things are looking up for the president’s signature achievement

Though you won’t hear about any of those successes on Fox News.

And nor will you hear any reminders of what big assholes and hypocrites Republicans were during the shutdown. So let’s take a look back at the highlights (click on images for more info):

and finally:

In the months since the shutdown ended and pundits started saying that it was a failure, Ted Cruz tried a new strategy— he now claims that it was Obama and Democrats who forced the shutdown, not he and the Republicans. Yes, really.

For the complete list of shutdown assholes, check out all our government shutdown posts.
