    Sets a great precedent for the future doesn't it? Although I guess it's been done before. Thats not how a democratic republic works. Its disgraceful.

    There for a while we were all worried about them. I'm just glad that they're all okay now.....at the resort. Thank God. This could have turned out horribly.

    So when Republicans filibuster because they lost big time in 2008, thats okay?

    This is all within the rules. They need a quorum to end debate and vote. They weren't given anything so they left. Yet they suppose to just take it. But when the shoe is on the other foot, its Unamerican to push something through because Republicans don't have a majority, right?

    So, you're on record as saying it's a okay for the Republicans to take numerous vacations when they don't want to vote???? Hypocrite.

    Sure, if it within the tactics that the minority party can do. You would be totally for it if it was something you believe in as well. Don't act like you wouldn't. Filibusters, not able to meet quorum is tactics the minority party can use to block legislation. Thats politics. They want it past, take out the collective bargining rights, keep the cuts in, win-win situation.

    They heard they could get free Justin Bieber tickets in a neighboring State and they couldn't resist.
