    Newt Gingrich shut the ****ing government down in order to not work with Clinton. So your ridiculous attempt here to try and give the credit to the republicans for the economy under Clinton is beyond farcical.

    I find you partisans to be hilarious. Of course the Republicans weren't going to do anything, and neither would Democrats if a bill to lower corporate taxes came to them. The only way tax reform is going to get done, is in a comprehensive way that does everything at once. All that things like this do is bait people like you all in to getting riled up. And you all are just blind enough to fall for it.

    that's an interesting take on corporations whose main duty is to make their owners money. If moving the company does that because the US makes doing business too expensive, so be it.

    Government wasn't shut down for 6 years. After 1996, Gingrich learned his lesson and for the next 4 years we had a pretty prosperous and well run country.

    I'll be partisan when the Dems actually become far more liberal. But as it stands I'll stick with facts... like how the Dems have multiple times put forth bills the close corporate tax loopholes only to be thwarted by the gop.

    Great. Put up what the GOP did then that made the economy run so well back then. Things that were their ideas under Clinton.

    The problem is that are doing these things not because they actually want to solve the problem, but to rile up the democratic base. If they really wanted to solve the problem, they'd work with Republicans on a comprehensive solution that lowers the overall tax rate but closes all these loopholes and freebies. And don't think that Republicans don't play the same game: All those times they pass bills to strengthen border security but not touch the larger problem of immigration, is just inviting Democrats to vote it down because that would be getting rid of their only bargaining chip in the hopes of something comprehensive on that issue.

    A "proud liberal" speaking on behalf of the GOP?
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    maybe you should tell reid that. this is what has killed many bills in the senate his refusal to allow any amendments.
    it's his way or the highway.

    which is why there are hundreds of bills waiting on a senate vote that he won't allow.

    this is a fallacy we don't know what the amendments to the bill or if it would have undermined anything. you are making a huge assumption about what would have been proposed without any evidence to support which means you don't have an argument.
