    3%? THREE PERCENT is draconian? Maybe you havent noticed but we are approaching $17,000,000,000,000.00 in the hole.

    Secondly Ag subsidies need to be tamed as well. From ethanol to soil banking, it needs to stop being supported by government money.

    If this were true, why not put it up for a vote? Republicans have more votes in the House than Democrats do. If it's truly about Republicans doing what you say, then the bill would not pass a vote. So why not put it up for a vote?

    We agree on something! The house should bring this up for amending, then a vote and vote it down. However its a bit hypocritical of you when the Senate does the same thing.

    How about a budget from the Senate? Oh, what's that?

    That's total bull****, he caves enough. When's the last time Reid gave in on something, hmmmm? I'll wait.

    See, that's the issue OC.

    The "Carrots", other than simply being able to stya here, can't legally be enacted BY THIS LAW without the "Sticks" occuring. It would take an entirely new law amending this one to allow the end game "carrots" of a green card to occur without the sticks happening.
