    Re: Government shutdown: House GOP to delay individual mandate

    Why didn't Repubs filibuster with all 44, versus the 19?

    Why would they filibuster a bill they were supporting?

    They were supporting a clean CR. I agree with you. Their counterparts led by Speaker4 Cruz do not.

    No one voted to end Cruz's time, it expired and was not a filibuster...

    So what has he done to be impeached that right nothing. I tell ya what it would be mighty stupid for Republicans to impeach another Dem President. They looked stupid last time now they would look like babies. Well damn they are !

    Democrats better never forget this business heretofore.
    This will be the fourth Christmas in a row that Repubs have sabotaged.
    Obama was spot on to bring it up.
    One can only imagine how much better the economy would be if the loyal opposition was actually loyal.
    It is 24/7 and voting wrongs still loom.
