    Senate Democrats block GOP filibuster

    "Patriotic Americans indeed." Thoughts?

    Your an idiot...the Republicans can filibuster nothing...they DON'T HAVE ENOUGH MEMBERS...Quit blaming all of your party's fuck ups on Republicans...it's getting real old.

    60 members of the Democratic caucus to cast their "aye" votes, hitting the 60-vote threshold

    Who says they can filibuster anything by themselves? The article said they played politics by attempting to get Democrats to join their side if you bothered to read the article. And they failed thankfully.

    It's not my party as I'm not a Democrat. Maybe you should worry about your party sinking further into the depths of scummy behavior and less about myself.

    Do you think that the reason they opposed funding for our troops was written in a bill that included 5,000 earmarks?? Because I do, one of those earmarks for $3 million dollars going to study a surgery center in outer space. :cuckoo:

    If the funding for our troops were written in a separate bill it would have been no problem and all Republicans would have supported it. Nice try though, to paint Republicans as anti-American, but that boat won't float.

    Why can't Democrats be honest enough to vote their earmarks outside of a defense bill?

    Oh, I see the problem, I said "Democrats" and "honest" in the same sentence.

    Oh how nice of all the Republicans rushing to their party's aid. Some even denying that the fact that the Republicans tried to get the bill blocked. How out of touch with reality. :lol:

    I think I'm kind of bored with people starting new threads on shit that's already being discussed. What is this obsessive 'look at me' mentality?

    Link? I looked before I made a new thread and I didn't see one.

    And considering who's saying "what is this obsessive look at me mentality" you're probably not one to talk. Though if it's anything I don't have, it's that mentality. I post threads that interest me.
