Living in a parallel political universe

"The President and his republican critics live in what you might call a parallel political universe."

CNN's John King is at the magic wall to show how the electoral map influenced Wednesday's debt deal vote and how the vote will affect upcoming elections.

    Nobody in our government really cares about the people.Why should they?Look at the money they are stealing from us in big wages,vacations,health benefits and payoffs from big companies.The last election was as crooked as you will ever see and the next one will be even worse.Nobody really cares about you or me,just their greedy assed selves.They all need to be impeached NOW and government cut in half.I am an old vet and may not see it but there is a revolution coming in the USA and it will NOT be nice.Jim Thomas Phx.Az.

    i commend the attempts by some of your on air personalities to hold those responsible who caused this disaster, cost our country as much as katrina, but i am not satisfied with your pursuit of answers to the question what about the $24 billion dollars and if it's no big deal then why cut food for kids that costs much less

    How could anyone even be thinking about who Won when real Americans were being hurt by the shutdown. A lady lost her business in the Yellowstone Park, her life will never be the same and her workers all lost their salaries. Which republican will go down their and restore her business, who will restore the workers at the other businesses in same location who lost their jobs. They are hurting real people over pure politics and trying to win the next election......They really need to check their hearts and souls by volunteering for the poor and average for at least a year...They have no heart, compassion for suffering people. Who's going to restore the 3 percent growth of the country or the 25 billion our country lost.
