    You're right. I wasted too much time on you. I have two reports to write before the end of the day. You'll get your answers when I have time.

    The difference between a one-year tax holiday for average people and a ten-year temporary tax cut is nine years, many billions of dollars, and a buttload of hypocrisy supplied by, among others, you.

    Which is why Boehners whine blaming the Senate is nothing but partisan posturing

    Again, your concession is noted. I don't know why you feel the need to keep telling me you conceeded.

    Uh-huh. So now you won't be wasting any time posting on any threads today, huh, because you're so busy? Right.

    I think we both know you won't ever be giving me an answer.

    Iíll wait.



    Why would they do that? The Senate canít have input on a bill? It should just vote up or down on every bill that comes from the House, and vice versa?

    Moreover, now that the House has a Senate tax bill - why doesnít it pass the Senate bill without amendments? Because the House went first?



    I never said that.

    It voted on the House bill, after amending it. Which is how it works with every major bill.
    For some unexplained reason, Gill thinks that all 100 Senators should agree to give up their responsibility to craft legislation, and just act like automatons and vote on what is placed in front of them.

    Since Gill refuses to back up his own claim, I did it for him, and it reveals why Gill refuses to do so

    Tax holiday - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    A tax holiday is a temporary reduction or elimination of a tax.
    Gee, it appears that the bush* tax cuts *were* a "tax holiday", even though Gill seems to be having a problem understanding that

    Re: Boehner demands Senate cancel its vacation

    Gill might actually go do his little search for a major bill that passed a chamber without amendment. He might even find one he thinks qualifies, and then I'll have to explain to him why he's wrong, and the bill actually was amended but through a process he doesn't understand (such as at the committee level only), and that will take another few days while he yells about "liberals" and then stomps off again and suddenly gets busy at work.
