House Democrats erupted in anger at President Obama on Thursday over his tax cut extension and free trade deal and federal pay freeze. The liberals cursed his name in the Capitol. Ever since Obama joined the Ditto Heads he's become a man without a country.

The U.S. Senate tabled Harry Reid's Dream Act which would have given children of illegal aliens in-state tuition. The title derives from a vote they took ten years ago. Congress was asked to consider Bill Clinton's Dream Act, and they impeached him for it.
