    I guarantee you that they and the entire GOP will pay a heavy price for that stupidity.

    The USA will survive, but I don't believe that the GOP will still be around very long.

    LOL. The house GOP just passed a bill that keeps the government running as well as gets rid of a massive disaster that Americans don't want. If the Senate or the President don't like it, they will be the ones "shutting down the government". What the house GOP did, Americans support. Now lets say their attempt at defunding the disaster fails. The GOP will be on the side of the American people and the Dems not on the side of the American people. Who pays the price in the next election? That's right, the Dems, just like when they pulled every trick and lie in the book to get it passed to begin with.

    So the bottom line, the Dems can do what the American people want and is common sense or they face the wrath of the voters again. Most Americans don't want their country destroyed any further by the disaster called Obamacare. All and all, a very good day for the GOP and one third of the way for a good day in America.

    The Senate will not pass this bill, and the leaders of the House know it. All they are doing is playing political games.

    To what end?? You might call it a game, but they're actually doing what the people who elected them want them to do. It's irrelevant if the Senate won't entertain the bill - I mean, c'mon - has the Senate YET entertained anything the House has sent them? Besides, what would your solution be - become the "do nothing congress" the left claims they already are, and thus prove them right - or ignore their constituents altogether and do nothing because they know the Senate won't go along? Frankly, I don't see either as remotely responsible.

    Wow this is groundbreaking! Now it's going to go to the Senate and get shot down faster than US drones in the middle east! Yay for unpredictable politics.

    I continue to stipulate that any law that requires exemptions to it is not a legitimate law. And this, despite the wealth of other equally valid reasons, is NOT a legitimate law. It is as your graphic aptly notes - tyranny at its core.

    To what end? Why, garnering votes, of course. As for the do nothing Congress, this one has epitomized the phrase. No, neither the house nor the senate, neither the Republicans nor the Democrats, is even remotely responsible. Our current Congress is dysfunctional.

    Well, I would acknowledge our current SYSTEM is wholly dysfunctional - it's just gotten way too gargantuan, way too tempting for any individual to avoid the lure of such power. And yeah, I think the vast majority of them have fallen prey to the allure of power that is our current system. It was never meant to get this big, never designed to be this big, never intended become this tempting to those naturally given to this sort of temptation.
