Now if we want to talk about if that win is temporary, what the win really means if it means anything at all, what happens in jan/feb etc well thats up for debate but this round goes to the dems by unanimous decision.
I'm pretty sure unions got the concession on Obamacare they were after as well.
Democrats once again played hardball, didn't concede on anything, got everything they wanted.... and were successfully able to pin all the bad press on republicans
perfectly executed politics.... piss poor governance, but perfect politics.
The minority party likes to make an occasional wave. They think that it keeps them relevant.
They made no gains, but they made the news.
Like usual republicans fail at politics even when they are in the right. Go figure.
