    So how come I'm watching the GOp applauding some of his plans? Does not look like their 'lining up' against anything that is rational, reasonable, and affordable.

    I wouldn't exactly call more "Free Trade Agreements" reasonable, rational OR affordable. That'll be the death nell of American Manufacturing.

    Maybe after their constituents at home told them to work together across the isle, they have decided to compromise.

    That might be true if this spend-a-thon were any kind of a jobs plan, any more than the previous spend-a-thons were.

    But it's not so it isn't.
