    Re: Does Piecemeal Funding Reveal the Republicans to be Hypocrites?

    If Repubs are demanding things they know they won't get, then how do Dems negotiate over those things.
    My fellow Dems may not like this, but you either choose life or abort when pregnant.
    There's nothing centrist on either of these issues.
    Now, Dems could give a list of items Repubs want, like Keystone, once they pass a clean CR and raise the debt ceiling

    You can call it piecemeal funding if you like...
    I prefer to call it what it is ...
    SELECTIVE ANARCHY!

    The current breakdown of this poll is 64% yes to 35% no ...
    That happens to be the exact breakdown of the American people in a recent national poll.
    Every day this goes on the repiglicon party loses favor with the public.

    What is completely hypocritical is for Boner to say "This isn't a damn game".....all the time the teabaggers and the rest of the GOP are playing the worst form of gamesmanship possible. Isn't a "game" Mr. Boner? Then put your money where your mouth is and put a clean and complete spending bill to an up/down vote. ......yeah......thought so.

    Of course you understand the House is acting precisely as the Constitution designed it to. It is up to the Senate mostly and the White House by influence, to deal with the spending bills that originate in the House. The fact they won't deal with the Constitutionally defined process places all the blame of the shutdown squarely on the shoulders of the Senate, and to a less degree on the White House.

    It's not for the mules in the press to sell lies and attempt to hold the House hostage to their demands just because they want something. Not how it works.

    LOL....oh yes.....the Constitution was designed for the tea baggers to hold the people of the United States hostage because they have lost ever battle in the war. Somehow...I doubt that....but thanks for playing.

    Thank you in advance for posting anything at all, other than more of your uninformed opinion, that shows the House is doing anything un-Constitutional.

    They are doing precisely what the Constitution charges them to do. It's not for the uninformed and easily manipulated to claim otherwise.

    Okie Dokie......If you think that the Constitution is designed so that a minority party can hold the American people hostage when they don't get their way.....more power to ya.


    BTW.....did you see the "classic" interview with Reince Priebus yesterday where he said "This is how the PARTY OF NO Governs".....LOL......too funny.

    See, you can't even follow a simple request. I asked for you for information showing what is unConstitutional about what the House is doing, and ignoring part of my request, you added more uninformed opinion.

    Hey if you want to go through life proving your ignorance....more power to ya!

    Where did I ever say it was "Unconstitutional". There are a lot of things that you CAN do...but there is a difference between CAN and SHOULD, Do you understand the difference? The Constitution and our system of Government is not designed for a bunch of teabaggers that decide to throw a tantrum because they can't get their way...and hold the American people hostage. The funny thing is that they expected this "groundswell of public support" that simply didn't materialize. They must be getting their information from the same source that told that that Romney was going to comfortably win in a landslide......LOL.
