    One of our republicans here explained that to me. You can't expect Republicans to compromise in their core ideals, which sounds almost reasonable. But you notice that a core ideal is anything they might get asked to compromise on..

    I guess that proves I'm not a conservative. I was cheering for the shutdown.

    Eh, I'm sure you're right that some, very few imo, politicians genuinely about their constituents. But I think most couldn't care less about the average American. Most only care about who's donating big money, and power.

    No you didn't, you just deliberately misquoted another poster. Not cool and yet another example of the depths you'll sink to, consistent with his real post.

    No, I fixed it for him. I didn't even charge for the service.

    You haven't a clue what the tea party wants and you've demonstrated you'll say and do anything as long as it forwards your extreme bias.

    Which is a painfully ignorant thing to do. The repercussions from a prolonged shutdown are unknown for sure, but potentially devastating.

    Senate leaders announce tentative budget deal | Fox News




    Deal reached to avoid default and open government



    And



    If any one has any better details on the bill, please link them.

    So, with what we know now, did republicans or democrats get a better deal on the compromise?
