    Too, too funny.

    Surely not!! Is such a thing even possible? I thought his nickname was "Big Spender." How confusing is this.

    See, boys and girls? The "Party of No" apparently lost sight of the fact that someday, they'd need something. Back scratching is not a one-way street.

    IOW, when the time came for democratics to "put the country above party" and demonstrate some of the "bipartisanship" thingy we hear so much about, they showed themselves to be the petty, churlish, scheming little hack turds that they are.

    A+ for sanctimony. :thup:

    Now, can some liberal weenie try to reconcile that statement with the usual 'the GOP all vote in lock-step to stop anything Obama wants from passing' type statements?

    (this should be fun to watch)

    How does this change that? Just because they voted no against themselves, doesn't mean they've stopped voting no against Obama.

    I think this situation is hilarious and clearly shows that the GOP and TP are at odds and that's causing all sorts of problems in Congress. I would predict Boehner kow tows to the TP and we see this pushed WAY right.

    Say good-bye to disaster relief.

    I think it's a tea party victory not a republican loss, taxes where not increased and the country did not suffer from the failure of it's passing. Also, this news is days old, where have you been?
