    hopefully this actually makes it to a vote in the house. probably will have a bunch of **** in it that is bad for low income Americans, but that's par for the course.

    They gambled with the well being of the American people, and lost.

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    What's incredible is that a couple ignoramuses in the tea party could threaten the well being of the American and world economy. They have to be removed from office before they push some button or other that blows something else up. Invincible ignorance paired with nihilism is just too dangerous a mix.

    Yeh it is reckless and will only hurt America is the long term. While America have been shutdown China have been making moves in my own country making huge capital investments and are continuing to assert themselves as the worlds new leader, they have been calling for the world to try to start distancing themselves from the American economy and the Dollar. Hard to argue with them given the last 2 weeks.

    Would any sane country want to be held hostage to the whims of the TP nutters?

    Right on with Brazil, especially with the 2016 Olympics in Rio..
    Not to mention the focus on Russia with the upcoming Winter Olympics..
    Reagan changed after the assassination attempt, when he gave the keys to the phony christian right, infuriating Goldwater.
