More Democrat party propoganda from Karl

Because we all know Karl's only interested in covering the leftist angle of a story - like he did here.

Campaign contributions influence laws through a process called bribery.

Not sure how you get that. "it's their turn to shovel manure atop the national tech discourse as is par for election season, releasing their Democratic Platform for your perusal". Looks like he's bashing both if you actually read it.

And you must be one of them.

»GOP Tech Platform: Give More Spectrum to AT&T and Verizon

Looks like to me he took on the GOP also.

It was pretty much spot on reality on most things (except the AT&T- T-Mobile merger), in that it was like "the Democrats say the right things but suck. The GOP is just a bunch of total idiots in the first place".

He was being sarcastic.

Just wondering if Karl put to thought that Republicans wrote SOPA. Republicans wrote PIPA. Republicans control the law writing body of the government - Congress. Now do tell us what Democrats have done to the internet the last three years when they can't even manage to pass a bill on jobs through Congress.

Good job Karl.

Not so sure. This one seems quite tame compared to the article where the Rs were bashed to kingdom come.

Good job Karl.

Congress is not controlled by the Republicans. Not by a long shot.

The house of representatives is, but the Senate is not. And without the senate, good luck with Congress getting any legislation through. Even if it passes, the President can veto.

You need to take a civics class.

The house has proposed and passed a lot of legislation, but Harry Reid pretty much just kills it off in the senate. THis includes budgets (all spending bills must orgininate in the house). Obama and the democrats don't want anything that doesn't raise taxes on high earners. Don't believe the media hype about the Rs being "obstructionist." The Rs are passing legislation, it is the Senate that is blocking. The Rs control one half of one third of the legislative process.

Just remember...you have one party that demands higher taxes of the rich and they won't budget till they get it. You have the other side which wants to take as much away from the poor as possible and won't budge until they get it.

I do however believe in the R's being obstructionist...that is why Congress has a 10% approval rating...the President on the other hand has 47%. Now we hear day in and day out how he's failed - and has admittedly done a less than stellar job. But since, as you noted, all spending originates with Congress...how is it possible Obama has been blamed for all the spending that has occurred? When one of the three executive branches has only 10% of America approving of the job they have done while the Senate and President have vastly better numbers... who do you really blame?

I blame the one that has spent all the money and continues to focus more on a uterus than jobs. I'm glad the Senate has been blocking because otherwise by now the wealthy would be paying no taxes at all, all social aid program would be gone and the defense budget would have quadrupled. Obama sucks...but the alternative is so much worse.
