    No, it paints those who make their decision on immigration on skin color alone as bigoted and racists, which they are.

    Re: Parliamentarian Weighing GOP Challenge to Reconciliation Bill

    the minority is really MESSING with the party in power upstairs

    LOL!

    it's so EASY to do!

    the gop is gonna offer amendment after amendment and FORCE harry's homies to ASSENT to things like---erectile dysfunction drugs for sex offenders

    LOL!

    any little change in the NUKE OPTION package upstairs requires a COMPLETE REDO thru pelosi's place

    on a more serious level, lifetime SPENDING HAWK john mccain from arizona is proposing AN AMENDMENT REQUIRING THE REMOVAL OF ALL SWEETHEART DEALS AND BRIBES STILL IN THE RECONCILE

    the hospitals for dead dodd, the banks for pomeroy's bismarck, the gator for bill nelson's aid, the airports for suckerpunch stupak, the cadillacs for the seiu, and literally tens of others

    i'm afraid messieurs schumer, rockefeller, wyden, et al, are gonna have to ENDORSE to the LETTER, each DOTTED i, each CROSSED t, the reconcile in toto, OR ELSE HERE WE GO ALL OVER AGAIN

    there's also another SERIOUS APPEAL in the COURTS on the part of the STATES...

    http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?p...d=ajwSWE6H1kHM

    those are a lot of awfully DARK BLUE dominions, did you NOTICE?

    and them's quite a hefty chunk of ELECTED REPS expressing dire disaffection

    the move won't go anywhere, of course, it's true

    BUT THE STATES ARE PISSED, that's the point

    (it shocks me, really, how you miss the meaning of so many stories)

    hey, maybe i'll START A THREAD about it!

    LOL!

    the point---this thing aint goin away, not for a single second

    live it, libs

    embrace it, bro's

    it's YOURS!

    Having failed to defeat HCR, I suppose that would be the next logical goal for the far right Republicans.

    misled?

    no

    the bill has some good stuff about pre existings and portability and some control over draconic premium hikes

    and some other good stuff

    but it's got a lot of problems

    it expands both m's, which are already straining to breakdown and bleeding red in 2017, by 31 million new members while cutting their funding by a massive half a tril

    remember?

    it intends to come up with a full two thirds of the revenues required for all this mighty expansion by rooting out waste, fraud and abuse which teddy kennedy and hillary and bill and lbj and every other progressive from texas to chappaquiddick must have been just too stupid to find

    it replaces a public option with a mandate on individuals---in the middle of our collective depression---to go out and buy a very expensive commodity from some PRIVATE provider

    it's off budget by a quarter tril of doc fix, a quarter tril of double counting (according to cbo, links provided upon request), 50 billion of unaccounted admin costs, a 70 bil raid on the soc sec lockbox...

    it's still loaded with bribes and exemptions for stiffnecked holdouts from dakota to florida, wyoming to vermont

    remember?

    it's all dependent on 10 years of taxes and only 6 years of benefits

    it taxes everyone obama promised never to touch, the middle and lower classes, small and large biz, PAYROLL and targeted industries

    etc

    who's misleading?

    congrats on your accomplishment

    I am extremely happy! Thanks! I feel the same way!!!

    It renews my faith in our system of government! It was great to see our representatives finally carry through with the mandate by the voters that put them into office.

    I haven't seen much of that in the last 40 years.

    Re: Parliamentarian Weighing GOP Challenge to Reconciliation Bill

    There is still hope. As newt gingrich just mentioned on Fox, once the reps take back control they can fail to allocate funds for the 157 new departments created in the bill to run the Obama care system. Similar tactic used to screw Obamas pledge to close gitmo.

    Make all the systems in the world you want, we just wont fund them so they will no longer function. But will they have the balls?

    that's great!

    except, y'know, they never really did PASS it

    they DEEMED it

    or, they might as well have

    cuz that's all they were talking about for a week

    up to the very morning of the vote

    and, unfortunately, america was watching

    very closely, as a matter of fact

    congrats!
