    Yes...because at this stage no one seems to know...except:

    If it is, then you can hardly call it convincing. And if it isn't, where did your claim about numbers released by the administration come from?
    They MUST have as HOJ is claiming:

    Yes, God forbid he should ever have to actually compromise with anyone that opposes him, or his policies. It's just not what wanna be dictators do, doncha know.

    What have the Republicans offered in this supposed compromise? And since when do the 161 Republican-sponsored amendments to the ACA not count as compromise?

    Come on man, they started with defunding, then went to delay, now remove med device tax. What the child non leader Obama offered? Nothing.

    The method we use to repeal laws we don't like has been followed for 230 years or so, if you think we will allow a bunch of sore losers to change that you are sorely mistaken. The blame for this falls squarely on the Republicans for allowing their party to be hijacked by morons that don't care what the people want but do the bidding of the billionaire backers that put them in power. It is disgusting and it must fall. When will Boner grow a pair?

    Come on man it's like a kidnapper bargaining down the ransom. It is the principle now that must be taught. We won't pay ransom even if is 1 dollar. Put down your weapons and release the hostages and THEN we can talk. This **** has got to stop .

    The T's got all they wanted in the ACTUAL CR. $80 billion less than the Dems wanted. The Dems agreed to THAT compromise in exchange for the broken promise of a vote on a clean bill with no extemporaneous demands attacked on to it.. Imagine that! Just like that the Republicans got everything they wanted in the budget just for threatening this so...... they decided it was so easy they could get more . In true right wing fashion, GREED is going to bring the ship down I'm afraid. They are already bobbing around without a rudder. LOL
    They have now put themselves in the position of voting to pay 100's of 1000's of federal workers for NOT Working. In fact their actions are forbidding them from working even though we are paying them full salary and when this ends there will be 10's of 1000's of hours of overtime just to catch up with what they missed. Now that's something every fiscal Conservative can really get there teeth into. LOL again

    The PPACA is signed into law and has been upheld by the Supreme Court. In what universe is "defunding the law" "delaying the law", and "gimme something, anything" reasonable? There are plenty of problems with the law but instead of trying to repeal it 40+ TIMES the Republicans should have been pointing out and fixing it's supposed errors. They had two damn years to think of something besides "repeal the law".

    Thanks for pointing that out. They Reps. now want us to forget that they got plenty of what they wanted in exchange for the promise of some Rep. votes. But as usual they lied about that and AFTER they demanded and got the amendments they got spooked and all Republican support was withdrawn. Negotiating with them is worse then pointless it seems. They just turn around and stab you in the back. It is a pattern lately and quite unsettling.
    You wonder how some of them can sleep at night.

    LOL. You got it completely backwards. Obama and the Senate Dems are demanding the ransom. And the GOP doesn't want to pay.

    But what are facts to a liberal, nothing.
