    harry needs 60 for cloture to bring it to the floor, he appears to be short, meanwhile the house just voted it down ahead of time as advertised, with bipartisan support too.

    House Defeats Reid Plan - What's Next? - The Note

    posters here and the media having told us it sux so that the reps didn't send a bill, (though they did ) but ried and the dems killed it by a table vote measure, and now that the reps actually had an open floor vote up or down with bipartsian support rejecting it, how do they make the reps guilty again?

    Beats me, but they will try.... :lol:

    hopefully this knocks down any nonsense that Boehner isn't crafty himself, this was a brilliant move.

    "Bipartisan support". :lol:

    11 Democrats = Bipartisan now? Thanks for the laugh Trajan.

    But really, the Senate should come up with a compromise bill at this point and then send it back to the House.

    Also, Boehner isn't crafty. If he was, his bill would have passed in the first place. Not taken three times along with major concessions to the Tea Party Caucus.

    Obama got a "couple" rhinos to vote for healthcare and then proclaimed it bipartisan. So thanks for the laughs indeed, at your expense no less.

    11 out of 51 is what percentage? ;)

    22 out of 242? Plus how many? I know you can figure out what the hell you are laughing about. Explain to the rest of us.

    Deflection on your part, quite understandable but still laughable. But I give you an B or effort. :thup:

    You don't see me sitting here talking about the healthcare bill. However, I see you, much like the rest of your party is obsessed with ideological purity. All the sheep must fall into line or otherwise they're not "pure" enough to be considered a member of the party. And you call yourself non-partisan. :rofl:

    11 out of 51? What numbers are you using? There is 193 democrats.

    11/193 = 0.05%.

    22/242 = 0.09%.

    By your definition then, opposition for Boehner's plan was more bipartisan than for Reid's bill.

    Nice epic fail Annie. :rofl:
