    Re: Government shutdown: House GOP to delay individual mandate

    Most filibusters in history--in a way, I'd like to see Repubs win the Senate back so we could do the same thing--unfortunately, Repubs would go nuclear in all respects

    Actually, they have. It's called a power of the house.
    Versus the Senate and Presidency. They can't pass this via legislation so they want to throw a tantrum to get their way.

    Not my term for it. It was a Republican who said this was a tantrum.

    The comments being made by the 25 Republican Senators who voted for a clean CR will be great fodder for next year's election.

    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    Re: Government shutdown: House GOP to delay individual mandate

    You don't remember the clean CR at a 79-19 vote by the Senate last Friday??
    Sounds like a score with Georgia state this weekend..
    Only 19 Repub Senators voted against the clean CR.

    The majority of his party. The Speaker needs to realize that if he doesn't get onboard the bus it may just run him over.

    That vote was for allowing debate on the bill to defund ACA...

    If he could then he would do it. Since he hasn't he obviously doesn't have the votes.

    Re: Government shutdown: House GOP to delay individual mandate

    Why would the Speaker want to be on a bus with Thelma and Louise??
    Most Americans consider him a good man. He will not want to go down in the history books with this TEAfolks.

    Same thing.

    All revenue, tax raising and appropriation bills must originate in the House. They aren't doing anything the people didn't elect them to do. When the people are against the law in question cutting off spending for that law is something the house can use to do the will of the people.
