    Personally I don't give a rat's ass about who to blame or whatever, I just want to fix it going forward.
    Then tell the black community to fix its reputation. There, problem solved.

    The original House version:


    • Democratic Party: 152-96 (61%-39%)
    • Republican Party: 138-34 (80%-20%)

    Cloture in the Senate:


    • Democratic Party: 44-23 (66%34%)
    • Republican Party: 27-6 (82%18%)

    The Senate version:


    • Democratic Party: 46-21 (69%31%)
    • Republican Party: 27-6 (82%18%)

    The Senate version, voted on by the House:


    • Democratic Party: 153-91 (63%37%)
    • Republican Party: 136-35 (80%20%)
    Sorry, but my point holds true.

    Perhaps you should fix your perceptions.

    Take those numbers and analyze them for us then.

    Why would equality of outcome be anyone's goal when they realize that to achieve this goal they're going to have to sacrifice all of their freedom to a government which can impose equal outcomes on everyone?

    If both John and Jane have the same equality of opportunity to get as many carrots as they like, which they do, then there is no problem.

    No thanks. I'm not a liberal and I don't like living in fantasy worlds. I'm a conservative and prefer living in an evidence-informed world.
