    He hasn't followed up on a promise yet.

    He even said he'd wait 5 days to sign any bill that reaches his desk. He couldn't even hold up to THAT promise. LOL

    Of course you may deem to stick with the "no we can't" theme if you think it will help you in the next elections.
    Do you always fallback to the position that the majority is always right?

    Do you ever review legislation before you support it?

    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...

    States Sue Over Overhaul That Will Bust State Budgets (Update2) - Bloomberg.com

    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!
    I certainly hope they do. I hope the dems remind everyone that if you think the bills are crappy that they thank the repubs for it.

    The top three election issues in 2008 were the economy, the Iraq war, and Health care reform.

    The economy has improved, the troops are being withdrawn (although not fast enough I agree), and health care reform has been passed.

    I predict a landslide reelection for Obama in 2012.

    Of course, do you ever review legislation before you oppose it?

    yes, always

    massive cuts to m and m while simultaneously expanding both bankrupt entitlements

    the claim to pay for TWO THIRDS of this crap by rooting out waste, fraud and abuse (LOL!)

    a quarter T doc fix, not paid for

    the double counting of another quarter T, according to cbo

    10 years of taxes, only 6 of benefits

    taxes, fines and fees on lower and middle class, small and large biz, PAYROLL, targeted industries...

    special exemptions for deadbeats like dodd and baucus and nelson and nelson and landrieu and pomeroy and the seiu...

    mandates on individuals to buy for themselves a (prohibitively expensive) product (in the middle of a depression) from a PRIVATE company en lieu of a PUBLIC OPTION

    i could go on

    this bill is a PIG

    and it's YOURS!

    by a MARGIN of THREE!

    congrats!

    I find it really vapid that you keep touting that it was a mandate and majority wanted it without actually defending the contents of the bill.

    What good is majority support if the legislation is destructive?

    You bet, I've been on this issue all year.
    Reading, reviewing and weighing all the possibilities.
