    Major Garrett wrote an article that predicted they would accept the 2 month deal in exchange for the Senate appointing a conference committee to iron out the differences.

    I'm not sure Boehner is cut out to be Speaker of the House.
    Yeah, I agree. I didn't really think Nancy Peolsi was great, but she actually managed to get votes and deliver most of the time. Now you could argue that she got the votes lined up for very flawed legislation, but that's a different argument. Boehner, on the other hand, doesn't seem like he is leader in any sense. He seems to be really bad at his job, and he needs to gtfo.

    Please stop your lies and insults.
    Very bad example. TEFRA was passed in 1982 by a reasonable group of Republicans and Democrats, who could work together to get things done for the country. None of those Republicans, including the party leader Ronald Reagan, would not be nominated by the party for local dog catcher in the 2011 Republican party. This is not your father's party; this is a group of wack-a-doos.

    Name one tax increase the Republicans have endorsed in the last 10 years. Danarhea is on the mark here, and you know it.

    Much like you did when you claimed that chambers of Congres routinely pass major bills from the other chamber without adding any amendments, and then promised to show us some examples, huh? Still waiting.

    So what! That arguably has been the problem. But, hey score, you get to hammer an anonymous message board opponent. What a win!

    he is not anonymous. he is in hiding. running from the question for which he has no answer
    but thanks to both of you for the laugh

    Really? You know him personally? You know me? Don't be any more foolish than you already have demonstrated.

    ii think we both know the poster who has been in hiding
    you have defended him and, in my last post, i have exposed him
    [while i believe it is misterman who has chided him for remaining in sequestration and refusing to answer the oft posed civics question]

    Here's two from earlier this year. Neither seem routine, like naming post offices and such.

    only pointing out that your focus on a poster's virtual anonymity has no bearing on this discussion
    his slinking away to flee from his words does, however
