    I can understand a couple of times in a year maybe, but clearly when they know they aren't going to get it repealed, that is a little too much don't you think?

    At what point would you consider it nothing more than a waste of time and political grandstanding? Yes, I'm well aware the Dems do this too, that doesn't make it any less a waste of time or any less wrong.

    Now, given that the GOP have won these last elections I would not consider it a waste if they were to try and do it as the tables and playing field have changed. However, in the past they have more than wasted time on this.
    The Republicans have a mandate from the people to repeal Obamacare.

The GOP's inability to pass legislation that becomes law has left a huge power vacuum.
    The President doesn't have the power to, "take the reins".

    Do yourself a favor and read my comments again. I commented on what you just said. More proof you are not actually reading posts and only skimming.

    Ok, so you are ok with wasting time and money as long as the GOP is doing it. Got it, thank you for your clarification.

    As I said before, I don't think a couple of times a year is a waste, but 54 in 4 years is a waste of time and money regardless of who is in control.

    I did read your post. It's obvious you're busted, since you took the insult road.

    Yet again, proving you wrong. I commented by saying:

    Now, given that the GOP have won these last elections I would not consider it a waste if they were to try and do it as the tables and playing field have changed.
    Do you ever stop spewing diarrhea comments? They didn't have a mandate previously to waste time and money. 54 times in 4 years is a waste of time and money.

    Now that they have won the senate, I would expect them to do it again and don't think it is a waste of time and money for them to try again. When will you stop being so partisan that it blinds you to anyone else's comments?

    LOL!!

    Actually, I said nothing of the sort, so the clarification resides in the depths of your own mind, only.

    You should know by now that playing dumbass little forum tricks doesn't work with me.

    54 times in 4 years is a waste of time and money that YOU approve of. So my comment stands. A couple of times a year I can understand, 54 in 4 years? No way.
