    Default The Tea Party and Meaningful Change

    Well, it seems the tea baggers elected to Congress are bringing about change when compared to 2005. The conservative Congress is setting the example and leading the way to a more conservative America. Well done conservatives, well done.

    IMO they are not only dumber but meaner and nastier as well.

    Are you guys going to post how the Democrats are stealing your social security away and not the Republicans? They are doing this by giving a 4.2% rate instead of the 6.2% while the employee still pays 6.2%. When they calculate the final benefit it's based on what you paid in at 4.2% so it cuts your effective benefit rate. The best part is they keep 2% of the employees contribution and they give it to someone else.

    My guess is you won't, you'll just put crap that nobody cares about everywhere to distract from the real issues, the real record and the real problems.

    Instead your on here whining about the grade point average of speeches when twitter and social media is dumbing down communication. In addition some use prepped speeches and some are orators. It started in 2006, who took over then? Either way, this is a mute issue as it's only a 1.2 in average drop and isn't backed by substance that matters.

    Yep. More worried about trolling/pot-stirring than anything, as usual. Funny thing is, as an intended slam, the original post is full of holes & the provided link contains the very info to prove it, lol... It's as if they just saw the headline & ran with it without actually reading the article.

    The Sunlight Foundation analyzed every word spoken by every member of Congress on the floor of the House or Senate. Sunlight imported the words into a searchable database and then "ran them through an algorithm to determine the grade level of congressional discourse,"
    There is nothing to gain from this study or article. That was a complete waste of time and I feel sorry for whoever coughed up the money to pay these quacks (probably taxpayers).

    Thanks for posting yet another example of wasting money.

    These guys are liberal junkies. They'll cook up and shoot up anything that makes them feel good.
