    Republicans put up these last-minute poison pill policy riders without negotiation.
    Hard to negotiate on something yer not told about until the last minute.
    And stay focused on this cromnibus, not past history .

    TEApartiers used to be against bailing out Wall Street.
    Why do they now support the end to regulations in Dodd-Frank that would bail out large banks ?

However, Boehner is stuck between a rock and a hard place between Tea Partiers who would rather slash and burn than compromise, and Democrats who want revenge for Republicans in the Senate stalling just about every bill that came up. Democrats are about to replace Republicans as the party of NO, and the Tea Party is actually helping them do that.

    NOTE: This bill is going to fail, but Boehner and Pelosi have come up with a short term spending bill that should fund the government into early next year, which will probably pass. Basically, they will be kicking the can down the road a little, then the crapstorm starts over again in a few weeks.

    How does it feel for the Dems to be wearing that shoe now? The party of NO is who?
    You mean poison pill policy riders inserted at the last minute by Republicans this week will shut down the government.
    With the GOP shutting er down three times since July 2011.
    Let's see if DEMs learn how to use this better than they did the October 2013 one in the messaging war they're still losing .

    aka. #23 and #24 on this list, combined totaling about 5% of the top two Democrat donors.

    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.

    Why do you falsely infer that they now Support the bill?


    Sixteeen Republicans–Reps. Justin Amash (Mich.), Michele Bachmann (Minn.), Dave Brat (Va.), Mo Brooks (Ala.), Paul Broun (Ga.), Louie Gohmert (Texas), Paul Gosar (Ariz.), Tim Huelskamp (Kan.), Walter Jones (N.C.), Jim Jordan (Ohio), Steve King (Iowa), Raúl Labrador (Idaho), Thomas Massie (Ky.), Bill Posey (Fla.), Matt Salmon (Ariz.) and Steve Stockman (Texas)–all voted against advancing the bill......snip~

    The Better Question is.....why is Maxine Waters and those that supported Dodd Frank. Now telling others to not support the bill?

    Since they wouldn't take up Rubio's Dream Act.
    Obama's mistake was not issuing the EO before the election .
    He never issued an EO on immigration.

    It seems not. It is a good question that I doubt any Obama acolytes will care to answer.
