    Heck, I really do hope the Democrats nominate this far-left nut-job as their Presidential candidate.

    The GOP led by Rep. Hensarling is obviously carrying Wall Street's water, willing to go back to Pre-Bush regulations that caused the Great Recession.

    And the GOP messaging war has been unrelenting against Warren since she was elected .

    3. Warren plays a very dangerous game and I suspect her own Party is going to shut her down. They certainly can't afford to be labeled as the Party that shuts down the government and the more they oppose Congress in the next two years the worse things will be for them in 2016.
    4. If Warren drags the ultra-leftwing loonies along with her...effectively creating a kind of lefty Tea Party...she will do irreparable damage to the Democratic Party. I hope she goes for it.
    1 - I don't care. What's bring proposed is straight up BS. You bringing that up is nothing more than an effort to distract.

    Nothing you've posted has anything to do with what was proposed. It's just more left vs right **** throwing.

    Would prefer to have this crap get approved?!

    I expect both left and right to fight against this type of economic nonsense that allows the worst players to raid the American taxpayers.

    So Liz wants a Government shutdown? Cool. Sounds like she's going to run after all.

    LOL!!

    Any politician who votes against the budget bill because of any of these items is not only a stupid ass, willing to shut down the government for these things that SHOULD be there, but prove themselves to be total douchebags.
    yes. bank deregulation, neoprohibitionism, opening the floodgates on donations from those who buy our government, and spending more money on war when we already spend more than everyone else combined are deal killers. most of the above have no place in a spending bill whatsoever. politicians should not be allowed to poison a spending bill with this kind of unrelated stuff.

    Politicians should not be able to do this to ANY bill but they do, all the time. Those in this thread screaming about it being done - where were they when the ACA was being done which was even worse. Perhaps the Senate will modify the bill or Obama will veto it.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    this particular poster was hoping that Obama would veto that one, too, but mostly because there was no public option. however, i agree with you. tying unrelated legislation to a necessary bill should not be allowed. i'd go so far as supporting a constitutional amendment to end the practice. it hurts our country.
