    Their decision to suspend the rules and not allow some Republican input/amendments backfired. Too bad. So sad. Why would anyone blame the Republicans? Are we sure the "gentleman" isn't named Whiner?
    No. I think his current name aptly describes his character as a man.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    At the end of the day, 9-11 first responders are left without health care and Republicans are the ones who voted it down.

    Funny...the article said Weener was mad at the DEMOCRATS for putting the vote under the 2/3 rule...

    that was his point. the cowards of the GOP refused to vote against the bill because they found it a bad bill
    Other than the headlines...do you even KNOW what is in this bill that you are advocating support for?

    if the content of the bill was objectionable why would the GOP cowards not come out of hiding and vote against it because it was without merit?

    How do you know they didn't?

    And, others will just throw accusations without any evidence or any explanation. “You lie!” Wow. Impressive. … No, not really.
