    While I certainly wouldn't be proud of anyone who was dishonest over his repugnant beliefs, it doesn't stand to reason for me that one's openly held repugnant beliefs should be any more admirable.

    Democrats don't give a **** how long the government is down unless they get their Obamacare funding..

    Republicans have tried to fund everything else but those pieces of legislation have been denied by the Senate beause that funding doesn't include full funding for Obamacare.

    I have no idea. I was responding to one man'e belief that any Republican who steps out of line should be thrown out of the party. I would've asked the same question if a Democrat had expressed a similar sentiment.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Repealing ACA will increase the federal deficit but that doesn't seem to matter to the Tea Party types who cry about the deficit on a daily basis.

    The idea would be to allow the majority of the House to consider and pass a bill that the leadership doesn't want to allow on the floor.

    False equivalency. Please state your criteria for when one side would ever be accountable for trickery while the other side should not.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    Re: Dems move to force Republicans to reopen the government

    A discharge petition is extremely unlikely to work. For one thing,despite an onslaught form the media,the GOP still is standing fairly strong (surprisingly given crybaby Boner). Another is that the GOP HAS actually passed appropriations bills for certain areas,and Reid could actually pass them. He must love Obama and Obamacare more than anything else. Must be the negro dialect and all.
