    Common ground. Linc would be proud. Now let's get the Transportation and Farming Bills done. Get a continuing resolution now that the Senate has actually passed a budget. I agree with the incremental approach to immigration since that is all the House will do anyway.

    So you equate UHC with police and fire departments? Wow, really, WOW!

    There is a better way, let the states and local communities handle it not the bureaucracy in D.C.

    Give these current assclowns time. Their remaps guarantee control until at least 2022. Do you believe in the loon wisdom of not passing any bills? Just more meaningless repeal votes? Or refusing to go to conference where the Repub adults from the Senate will make them whine?

    And why do you think that would be better? Why are 50 smaller units better then one big one? Did you miss the Economies of Scale part of Econ101?

    Should we have 50 little FAAs and the pilots can speak with a couple of dozen when flying across the country?

    Fair enough.

    Uh, yeah, because a bureaucrat in D.C. has no idea what the problems are in a local community and state. Costs are different, situations are different, people are different. This country was built on individual freedoms with power centered closest to the people. That would be the states, not the Federal Govt. There is one basic role of the Federal Govt.--PROVIDE FOR THE COMMON DEFENSE. Healthcare is an individual responsibility not a Federal one.

    The only way to do something about the deficit and debt is to play nice, and that ain't gonna happen. Each Christmas seems to have a new shutdown threeat, hurting sales. One shutdown already has cost us more just to borrow money. All we do is blame, with a big shout-out to computers for helping.

All this outrage over business but none over the 3.77 trillion dollar Federal Govt. and 17 trillion dollar debt. That says it all about you and other liberals.

    There are dozens of bills that have nothing to do with Obamacare sitting in Harry Reid's desk but the brainwashed liberals refuse to even consider who is obstructing economic growth. Keep buying what the media and the left tells you while ignoring what is actually going on.

    So it's ideology for you, even if it wastes money and duplicates efforts?
