    Re: Tea Party Budget Tactics Are Hitting The Military Hard

    there may be a way to end the shutdown, and get a clean spending bill from the house which can pass the senate and ultimately be signed by president obama. all the democrats have to do is get enough signatures to invoke a discharge petition and force a vote on a clean continuing resolution to fund the government, something the republican leadership in the house has been refusing to allow.

    the beauty of a discharge petition is that it requires the signatures of a absolute majority of house members, which is 218. there are currently 200 democrats in the house, so all it would take to pass a discharge petition is 18 republicans, and 13 republican house members have been calling for passing a clean continuing resolution. all it would take is 5 more republicans to pass a discharge petition, force a vote on a clean continuing resolution bill, pass it in the house, pass it in the senate, and get it signed by President obama, and government shutdown crisis is over.

    Hence the mandate and the billions of dollars in subsidies that will be funneling into their pockets.

    Well they spent $102.4 million dollars in the last 15 months to stop their happiness. That doesn't make sense to me.

    Right, that's why they are refusing to insure people in many areas already. LOL.

    ... that didn't contradict what I said at all. Republicans not engaging with the process happened simultaneously with Democrats beginning the process.

    The irony is there are thousands of people who belong to the Tea Party and support it.

    That's not what I was talking about earlier with Deuce. Your statement has no relevance to what Deuice and myself was discussing earlier. I proved him wrong.
