    How may times did the republicans shut down the govt in an attempt to end slavery? (answer: None)

    Less firmly established huh



    A law that is passed is as established as any other law. Much less one that was then contested in the scotus and survived. It is established law... No matter what spin you put on it.

    The GOP is trying to negotiate a settled law. Not a bill. So the point is, the GOP is ****ing stupid.

    Let me guess: You feel the same way about Dred Scott, Plessey v. Ferguson, and Roe v. Wade. Your faith in the wisdom of your superiors is quite touching.

    Cancelling ObamaCare does not deny health insurance to anyone.
