    Re: Republicans Shut Out of Stimulus Conference Negotiations

    The Democrats consistently tried to reach out on the stimulus plan and the result was a whopping 2 senators voted for it and NO representatives did- after multiple revisions designed to make it more attractive across the aisle.

    The Democrats tried, the Republicans weren't interested.

    That's what you get when you wont play.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    And again . . . this is the Democrats' Patriot Act.
    If there was any history on the republican side of the isle that would lead anyone to think that they would play nice if given the opportunity then maybe... But alas, as we saw right off the bat, Obama offered bipartisanship and house repubs, in a unanimous **** you, dug their own hole. Why should you be complaining when your party made the bed it has to lay in?

    Um... what was the final vote in the House?
    Seems to me the bi-partisan side was AGAINST the bill.

    I think it's the opposite here only because this will not work. Plain and simple. What will work is a major cut in income taxes, like 35%-45% for two years. Result? Money and not just a George Bush check for ice cream. This puts $$$ back in to everything in this economy on every level.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    Democrats "reaching out" to Republicans:

    Nancy Pelosi: We won.

    That's because repubs flipped him the bird in the first 2 weeks. I know, you want democrats to roll over and do as they are told as if repubs were still in power. too bad, suck it up like democrats had to.

    Specifically, how did they do this?

    And even so -- didnt Obama say that he was The One to change the tone in Washington? To usher in a new era of bipartisnaship? To sit down and listen to everone that had ideas -- because solving problems was more important than partisan politics?

    Did he lie?

    LOL... tax cuts, for who the rich? ... more of the same failed ideology. I say we have an 8 year moratorium on taxes for anyone making less than 200k and at the same time a 34-45% increase on the ****ers who got all the benefits of the last 8 years. How about that for a ****ing tax cut policy?
