    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!
    They did not pass it, they

    passed it.

    Did you put a lot of

    thought

    into this post?

    Because it was another legislative tool at their disposal.

    Re: Parliamentarian Weighing GOP Challenge to Reconciliation Bill

    that's the only way it could pass, silly

    unless it was DEEMED

    unfortunately, many americans were led to believe that's what the party was actually gonna do

    cuz that's what they kept SAYING

    remember?

    Any one foolish enough to take speculation about possibilities as fact deserves to be confused.

    And didn't you yourself say it was not passed? Yup, you said right here in this thead "except, y'know, they never really did PASS it". They did not pass it, except in that they did pass it.
