    Because even for the GOP 2009, this is frankly beneath them.

    So we were supposed to have our congress critters vote on a non existant plan?

    Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. At WORST here, by your own accusation, they're being pedantic sticklers for a procedural issue (at WORST), and after a decade of failing to do ANY good, ANY good at all, THAT'S "beneath them"?

    Now you're just embarrassing yourself.

    The relevant point is that the Anti-Republicans are seeking to deny to the minority party a privilege that by law extends to all members of Congress.

    So you are ok with there being one standard of law for Anti-Republicans and another standard for the rest of America?

    Nice to know Anti-Republicans are more equal than the rest of us, Squealer.

    Well, I lot of other people have cal;led you out on not being able to explain how the cart is "made up"

    I'm curious what you people don't get about this: there is no final draft to vote on yet. It doesn't exist. It's still in committees and therefore doesn't exist as of yet. What is it about that you don't understand?

    Re: Democrats Block GOP Health Care Mailing

    The right only wants propaganda sent out if it is from the Republicans and it matters not how truthful it is. In fact, the most cited recourse from the right wingers is the Lewin Group. Most numbers and opposition to the entire process are based on the Lewin Group's "research." What the GOP doesn't tell you is, the Lewing Group is owned by one of the largest Health Insurance Agencies in the nation. Oh, there's no conflict of interest there.... never. Furthermore, the Republicans pick and choose what to release from the Lewin Group's studies, leaving out critical information. This is all reported in the Washington Post, a conservative leaning paper. What does that say about said pamphlet going out? I know I know, the Republicans will use whatever "information" they can to squash this for the American people no matter how false their information is, but I would hope conservative leaning citizens wouldn't put up with it. I guess I was wrong.
