    Why would we expect things to change? The people voted for the Status quo.

    Yeah--Democrats won't vote for Obama's proposal--it was dead before they even put it on paper.

    We'll soon know the truth as to why Reid objected.

    I sincerely hope McConnell loses his Senate seat to Ashley Judd in 2014. It's real possibility...

    We'll soon know--:badgrin::badgrin: Reid has not-- nor will not bring this absurd proposal to the floor for a vote--because he knows it a waste of time and effort--Da Duh!

    Democrats have spent the last 4 years trying to prop up Obama and get him reelected--they have absolutely nothing to lose now. Obama won reelection--he won't have a 3rd term--and they don't feel they need to lick his heels anymore.

    That was more than obvious yesterday in a senate vote when they had a 98-0 vote to give the military 631 billion dollars and call for the exist of Afganistan sooner. Obama said he would veto that bill---:lol: So the FIRST bi-partisan bill to come out of the Senate--Obama threatens to veto.
    Senate passes $631 billion defense bill - The Denver Post

    IOW--Obama's wishes are being ignored by the Democrat lead senate.

    Because it was never a serious proposal. The Democrats are just feigning a desire to fix the problem. If they didn't want this to happen, they wouldn't have made the deal to make this happen.

    Some of us already do know. Others of us have a pretty good idea what the truth is just by paying attention.
