And that's all the Dems offer.

    Am I supposed to think that Democrats don't use gerrymandering? I don't and won't with reason.
    yeah because we live in a post racial America.

    every part gerrymanders. My comments were ones of reality based on who controlled the 2010 election cycle when redistricting happened across the nation.

    So you can take your attempt to rewrite what I'm discussing by exaggerating and hyping into something entirely more broad and general than I focused on if it makes you feel like somehow your FNC bull**** is viable.
    well you believe what you wish to believe, but i never once mention FNC, you have only concluded what you wish conclude.

    Really? Is it not also possible that the House will draft its own immigration "reform" bill and then reconcile any differences with the Senate's bill? How many House budgets made to the Senate floor for a vote? When the administration does not even enforce the nation's current immigration law(s), as written, then why would the House believe that the new law, as passed by the Senate, will be enforced "as written"? A "dreamy" immigraiton law has not been passed, yet the administration pretends that it has - you see they simply "lack resources" to enforce only the parts of the current immigration law(s) that they wish not to, yet have plenty of resources to fight any state that dares to try to.

    does it say anywhere in the constitution that the senate and house have to vote on every piece of legislature that one chamber sends to the other?

    No. So why complain about the House not "hopping to" and voting on the latest amnesty bill from the Senate?

    it also nullifys any complaint about the senate not voting on house bills, since neither chamber are required to vote on every piece of legislature.

    Yep. We don't need no stinking federal budget, that requires a vote and taking responsibility for its contents - just take current federal spending and add some percentage to all of it for next year. That way they voted to avoid a gov't shutdown, not to approve all of the pork/waste.
