    That chicken shit drunk is the worst speaker in our history. He doesn't give a crap about the American people he supposedly works for. All he cares about is his childish grudge match with the president.

    The GObP/pubpots, will go right on obstructing and filibustering jobs bills and any other bills that could help us out of this recession.

    We need to start docking their pay for not doing their jobs. The Rs don't even bother to show up. They're out on the golf course and only come back for photo ops.

    Bastards.

    The only cs here is the cs gas coming off your keyboard, luddly, as you pound of inanity after inanity. Not a first for you, however, as the newly crowned Village Idiot of USMB since the predecessor to your de-steamed title got banned. <giggle>

    As usual, the nutter rw's can't dispute the content so they fall back on their boring little insults.

    Boehner is less than useless. He's a drunk who spends more time on the golf course than he does at work. He and his R cohorts have a nice little racket going. They screw YOU and YOU pay them.

    So let me get this straight. If Boehner says a senate bill is dead on arrival that is a bad thing, but when Reid says a house bill is dead on arrival that's perfectly acceptable.

    Do I have that right?

    Boehner and Reid can work out a compromise. Boehner allows bills to come to the floor from either party for up or down votes. If so, the Senate Dems drop the filibuster changes, EXCEPT that if a filibuster is called Senators have to be present and have to stand up and talk and have to pass off to another senator.

    With these changes, bills may actually make it through Congress with some compromise.

    But will Reid allow bills from the house to get an up or down vote, or will he still say their bills are dead on arrival?

    They can't take the end of their free-fire-zone on the US Treasury. Boehner's conservatism concerns the giv-a-mint-to-ourselves, help-yourself-while-nobody's-looking society that liberalism has made of itself.

    Your noticing the left's hypocrisy is a bull's eye for the realm.

    America's gonna throw 'em out next time!

    I agree, it is has to be equal.
