Republicans on Capitol Hill are acting like spoiled brats after Democrats snatched victory from the jaws of defeat by passing health care reform.

On the day President Obama signed the bill into law, Sen. John McCain, who often touts his ability to work across the aisle, said Republicans will no longer cooperate with Democrats because of the passage of health care.

In an interview with an Arizona radio station, McCain said: "There will be no cooperation for the rest of the year. They have poisoned the well in what they've done and how they've done it."

    The GOP seems to be imploding. They keep forgetting that the work they need to get done is for the American people not the Democrats. And Sarah Palin is campaigning for McGrumpy right now in Texas and her Facebook Fans are dropping her like a hot potato. A LOT of negative comments from her fans. Incredible.

    Good. Block every spending bill until we can run these progressive spendocrats out of office and try to restore our Constitution and Nation. Killing this bill either by repeal or by cutting funding needs to be the first priority of the next Congress. Finish the job in 2012 when we have a new President.

    Then start cutting other entitlements and look to restore some fiscal sanity to our budget.

    what i dont understand is, this is about the people in american, not about who is winning and loosing. As long as is in the best interest for the citizens in american thats all that matters.
