    Debating bills that have ZERO chance of passing is doing less than nothing.

    Clucking on the sidelines is doing nothing.

    If you believe the reason for the 2nd A is to stop gubmint tyranny, and the CONs love throwing that word around, then not so brave men are sitting idly by doing nothing.

    just saying, sometimes the rhetoric is way out in front of the facts...
    It was already voted upon, and passed. That means the People's representatives, the House, have already decided the bill should be law, that means something. If you don't think it will make it through the weak-ass senate, that says something too. It may not become law, but it's not the same as doing nothing.

    Indeed. I expect some Democrat Senators who are facing tough fights this year to agree with it as they plan to distance themselves from Obamacare in their upcoming campaigns. As long as they do not actually tip the balance far enough to let it pass of course.

    Actually it is WORSE than doing nothing since it is taking time that could be used for productive legislation. The do nothing, know nothing House strikes again. It's time to throw the bums out.

    Just the reverse. The House has brought a legitimate issue and solution forward for that issue. The failure if there is one falls directly on the senate if they fail to consider this issue. The House has done it's job here.

    The Houses "job" is to pass legislation that will become law. The normal process involves consulting with the Senate to that end. If that is not done it is nothing but a waste of time.

    Sad, but true.
    Good Lord...Conservatives always talk about impeachment. Hate to break it to you but a President with different political views than you isn't grounds for impeachment...be he black or white.

    No, the houses job is to make and propose laws what their constitutients want. Whether it has a chance of passing or not is irrelevent. Or do you not believe in representitive democracy?

    You mean like how democrats always talked about impeachment of reagan and bush? Please don't attempt to imply that conservatives are the only ones that do this.
