    Senate bill posted for months. True. Reconciliation Bill if goes to House? Nope. Hey, they're betting on the stupidity of the people and the spin of the far left:

    What is the obsession with holding these criminals to any standard?

    That's the new mantra. Not Hope n Change. Not Bipartisanship. Not democracy. Not any of the things Obama ran and was elected on. Now its just win win win for the sake of winning. IDeals be damned. Party be damned. Public be damned.
    You want transparency in government? Fuck you
    You dont want this health care bill? Fuck you
    You want democratic processes to ensure fairness? Fuck you.
    The Democrats, the party of Fuck You.

    If it does happen, come Nov. I'm sure the Republicans will
    "git er done", also. We'll then see what does stick, and what doesn't with the bill.

    From the first "everything on CSPAN" comment I knew it was a sham. A noble gesture, but as hollow as a martin gourd.

    I said I would refrain from saying it...but "its the Chicago way"...I'm just waiting for Hoffa to come out of hiding

    "Git er repealed" will be the new slogan, and that will happen fast.
