    We are in a completely unsustainable situation. The administration can't get anything passed even with 100% support from Democrats, and Republicans oppose everything in knee-jerk fashion UNLESS voting no would literally wreck the economy in short order. Even then it's a tough sell. F*cking crazy.
    Pretty sure they'd vote no and wreck the economy anyway. Their first goal is making sure Obama doesn't get re-elected. Not governing. Not doing what's best for the country. Winning is their goal.
    One of you will end up here next!

    It was 50 Dems, the other 3 voted with Republicans.
