Nowhere was that revisionism more evident than in President Obama's comments late Wednesday in lauding the just-ended 111th Congress, and in particular its lame-duck conclusion: "A lot of folks in this town predicted that after the midterm elections, Washington would be headed for more partisanship and more gridlock. And instead, this has been a season of progress for the American people. That progress ... is a reflection of the message that voters sent in November, a message that said it's time to find common ground on challenges facing our country." A few paragraphs later, it became clear that Obama wants us to believe that voters meant for congressional Democrats and Republicans to find that common ground so they can do more of what made the 111th Congress "the most productive two years that we've had in generations."

No, Mr. President, voters in 2010 did not demand bipartisan cooperation in 2011 to advance Obamacare, increase out-of-control federal spending that drove the national debt to $13.4 trillion and the annual deficit to $1.4 trillion, add thousands of bureaucrats to the government payroll even as private-sector unemployment remains near 10 percent, create hundreds more wasteful, duplicative federal programs that mainly benefit Democratic-favorite special interests like Big Labor, impose thousands more growth-killing environmental regulations, or erect multitudes of additional obstacles to achieving energy independence here at home.

To be sure, voters have lost patience with the endless partisan harangues, elitist arrogance, political corruption, and hypocritical pandering to special interests that long ago came to define Washington and its professional politicians in both parties. That was why Republicans were tossed out of congressional power in 2006. The same factors further coalesced in 2010 with disgust with Obamacare, the failed $814 billion economic stimulus program, the "Always Apologize for America" foreign policy, and exploding spending and debt. The result was that voters tossed Democrats out of control of the House and handed Republicans their deepest midterm election victory since 1938. Only in a liberal fantasy world does such an electoral result represent an electorate demanding bipartisan cooperation for more of the same.

Historians may someday describe the just-ended lame-duck session as the high-water mark of Big Government. Come Jan. 5, the reality of what voters did on Nov. 2 will become incontestably clear as a Republican House majority takes office. Then, as Sen. Tom Coburn said Wednesday, henceforth, "there will be no more big spending bills." The new year cannot come too soon.

We will see about that B.S. they like money so well ,We will see how far that goes. Means to stop Democrats from funding jobs on the Federal side for belief that jobs will be equally split among minority and the majority ,unlike the private sector.When it still hold truth a White man with a high school education can hold a better job than a Black man with a master degree.So don't get your hope up too far. A person who will spend million of dollar of their own money is certainly not in it for the people . It's for power ,pure power to reign over others as simple as that, Tom Coburn is a hypocrite.
Tom Coburn is a pragmatic, brave, caring, and smart US senator. Tom Coburn is one of two MD's (medical doctors) currently serving in the senate. Tom Coburn has treated over 15000 patients and delivered over 4000 babies when he was practicing medicine.

Tom Coburn's message is this, simply stated: "We can't spend any more money we don't have."

We should all know this from common sense, live within ones means, and with the present fed. govt. spending and over borrowing the future generations'..................when you run out of other people's money, game over.

jarasan says: "The federal government is rotting from within, and it needs a doctor, Tom Coburn MD. may be the start of the cure. The first step must be taken, "admit that there is problem", no more ignoring the problem and its symptoms, it WILL kill the patient if not attended to. No BS."
