    Me, I think HE thinks bashing Republicans over it is "good politics."

    Whaddya, mean, SO? You asked the question - don't like the answer .... again???




    As to why not pass the bill - sure thing, have the Republicans quit whining about majority votes (reconciliation). GOPers are the whiners .... wah wah wah wah ...... stfu already.


    As to Obama 'bashing' .... he's doing nothing of the kind, and none by the most hyperpartisan thinks he is. Wassamatta grasshoppa, don't like any criticism AT ALL?


    Toooooo bad.

    I know, it has been mentioned since.



    Well, lets hope we see the republicans do the right thing and filibuster!
    Let evil swiftly befall those who have wrongly condemned us

    And ... where were the Republicans when they had majorities in both houses AND the presidency?

    You haven't asnwered his question.
    If The Obama has the votes, as He claims, why continue with the GOP bashing and not just pass the thing?

    The GOP's Health-Care Alternative - WSJ.com
    House GOP outlines health care bill - CNN.com

    Yes, they have not produced a paid-for health care reform bill, they have not produced a health-care reform bill that would decrease the numbers of the uninsureds, and they have not produced a health-care reform bill that slows the rate of health care spending and health-care premium increases in the least.


    If you think they have, show me the numbers. (HINT: there aren't any numbers)

    Au contraire, little one, I most certainly DID answer that. One has nothing to do with the other. Problem right there is FAILED LOGIC.

    The kick is up... and misses... because the goalposts were moved.

    Wait... your answer is:

    As to why not pass the bill - sure thing, have the Republicans quit whining about majority votes
    Really?

    Why does the GOP have to 'quit whining' to pass the bill?
