    I am not, I have been watching the liberals destroy it, maybe you should move, oh wait, that would mean leaving all your entitlements.

    Why did the senate send back a bill they knew wouldn't pass the house?

    Why did 25 out of 44 Senate Republicans vote for cloture on that clean CR?

    They didn't. They voted to allow defunding of the PPACA to move forward. Why do you persist with this canard?

    Sorry, they might as well just put a provision that Obama should shoot himself... the fact that they compromised from a self-inflicted wound to the temple to simply being tazed while in the shower is not exactly compromise. Putting a poison pill into the CR and then only going out two months with it should be a non-starter among anyone that is being serious as it is with the Dems.

    The President should not negotiate with terrorists.... for one, it sets a very bad precedent. The issue at hand is should the government be funded until a budget can be put in place or not. Anything else is an irresponsible distraction. When with the Republicans throw these buffoons out of their party and get serious. This whole thing is bordering on treasonous.

    And defunding was defeated, leaving a clean CR. Coburn has just come out trashing the House repubs.

    Did any Repubs vote for the measure stripping the language? The short answer is no, so, please, stop trying to mislead...

    Hey kids, let's pretend that the Senate didn't offer to conference 18 times during the last year, each time rejected by the tea party freaks.

    Let's pretend.

    They don't have the votes to repeal it. So they want to hurt America for not giving them more destructive power.

    That's how sick and nihilistic conservatism is.
