    You forgot the overwhelming popularity that they received from this debacle. What they succeeded in doing was to make both the President and the Affordable Care Act more popular and took their own popularity with the public to an all-time low. I hope you guys have lots more victories like that.

    Which is entirely irrelevant to what was asked in this thread

    Why are you fixating on the debt when unemployment is still at such unacceptable levels? The most important thing is getting the economy on track.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    I was responding to another post. Presumably you would find that post also irrelevant, although perhaps not since that poster shares your political philosophy.

    In any event, whether irrelevant or not, it's true. Painful for you folks, I know, who apparently saw the possibility of some great victory where the evil Obama was brought to heel and goodness triumphed throughout the land.

    You increase employment long term on borrowed money, without stabilization, everything realized is temporary. The debt has continued to rise under EVERY President. How would your house mortgage look if the debt continued to rise every year?

    The other persons post actually addressed the subject of the thread...which was who won in terms of their legislative goals. The post in question talked about the funding levels in the bill, which is legislative in nature. Your post rambled on about making things popular (Polls, not legislative results). I'm sorry you're suffering from some sort of persecution complex in this thread, but your inability to actually address the question within the OP and need to deflect into other opinions is not a testiment to my partisnaship but perhaps your own.

    Reading comprehension is not tied to political philosophy. Neither is the ability not to ignorantly stereotype. It's not "painful" at all to me; I've suggested for some time on this forum that the Republicans were politicall wrong in their action and are likely to come out as the bigger of the two losers in this. The difference is I recognize there are a multitude of other threads discussing that and I instead attempted to focus on what was actually asked in the OP.

    I would be totally cool with that if I was immortal, and could print my own soverign currency like the US government.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
