The 60 Republicans that voted against this sham have my respect and support. The rest of them are either liars who are hoping to fool us with this sham, or cowards who caved at the last minute and accepted the status quo and dressed it up as "historic budget cuts".

    Is there any place we can get a list of who voted yes and no? I'm really curious to see what the local Tea Party member voted.

    You grossly overestimate both the progressiveness and the competence of the Democratic party.

    Over estimate? Nah, I just don't trust our leadership not to cave, and I sure don't trust the Liar -n- chief not to take advantage by subderfuge.

    We couldn't get the Public Option out of the Senate even when we did have "60" votes.

    Because even the Democrats aren't stupid enough to do that.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
