    McConnell Offers 3-Stage

    I would hope everyone can see through McConnell's plan and see his true intentions are just to play politics in order to make sure his plan of Obama being a one term President comes true. Despicable and irresponsible.

    That's the most unremarkable attempt to pass the buck I've ever seen. What he's basically saying is "don't make me do hard stuff. Republicans can't do hard stuff".

    and where in the Constitution does this 2/3rds clause come from?

    Maybe what the Republicans in Congress should do is run away to Canada. That would work. Then the dims could do it without them. They'd be heroes then right?

    Considering the GOP is willing to throw away their best opportunity to cut the deficit because they rather play politics, I figured even you might least the bit angry Willow. But then I remembered, nah, it's Willow! :D

    They'd be heroes if they ran away to Canada to AVOID the vote. Right?

    Nope. Though they are effectively doing their best to avoid voting anyway with this proposal.

    All you're trying to do though is deflect because you do not have a good argument to refute what I said.

    They fled to block a law that would strip workers of their Constitutionally protected rights. Certainly you can see the difference here.
