    Well, I am sort of with Hairy on this one. The bi partisan bill was mostly just bi partisan pork. We don't really need that kind of bill.

    Its a prelude, the word is the dems plan on committing political suicide and will go forward with 'reconciliation'.

    They are pulling the bipartisan bills in the hopes of making it look like the GoP won't agree to anything to the public, and they hope to get public support for 'reconciliation'.

    The fireworks are just starting.

    Bumping this because it really is a huge story.

    Reid made it impossible for the GoP to add amendments (the Dems can) while dumping a carefully crafted bill that was truely bipartisan.

    This is why I say we should quarantine Washington.... No one gets elected to this government, and no bills are signed.... until we have destroyed the corruption. The US political system is infected with the virus of corruption and the quickest way to cure it is to stop it spreading and infecting anyone else.

    Wow can it really get any worse than Reid & Pelosi? After all their blustery "Bi-Partisan" rhetoric,Reid does this? Are people really so dumb as to buy the Dem B.S.? What a scam.

    Reid is doing the right thing here. This isn't about Republican politics, if they want to be a part of things, they need to leave special interests and their wingnut agenda behind.

    "Bi-Partisanship" has become an empty & simple mantra just like their "Hope & Change" mantra. I think common sense thinking people can see that the Democrats are full of chit. Reid & Pelosi gotta go.

    Hmmm...the Democratic leadership at the meeting argeed to the plan. A single leader thinks otherwise and the thing dies. Reid sounds like the special interest. I agree there is too much pork on both sides of this one. Reid didn't kill this one for any other reason than political advantage.
