    The Democrats have majorities in both the Senate and the House and a President willing to sign their bill. Then why don't they vote on the "deal" they had and get it to the President? If the world is suppose to end by the end of business today why not have the courage to pass the bill? Why should they care whether the House Republicans are on board or not?

    The answer: They need to cover their behinds if it fails.

    And because so many of them are neck deep in this.

    Heads will roll and there will be people thrown in jail. Including lots of dem senators and some of Obama's nearest and dearest.

    :confused: jail? how do you figure that?

    but yeah, they dont want to make this a party issue in case it fails. theyre trying to spin it like they want unity, but theyre just afraid to take a move so unpopular with the american people

    They don't want to be left holding the smoking gun when this bill is passed, and when it leads to bigger problems down the road.

    Damn Dems...how dare they not allow you to walk all over them...

    :eusa_hand:

    You want us to clean up your mess, time to take some responsibility. Isn't that what you guys are always talking about?

    And why aren't you posting today's polls?

    yeah they need to have the republicans on board so they can't use it as campaign issue... it sucks but that's the reality.

    the republicans got us into this and now they'll sit back and watch the Dems try to fix
