This entire budget brouhaha reminds me of that old suicide joke. The husband (democrat) and wife (republican) decide to commit suicide and the wife went first. Seeing her done in on the floor made him feel so good that he changed his mind. That's the secret of this six shooter, six bullets Russian Roulette. Let the other guy go first but with the Teaparty begging and kicking to go first, it almost takes the fun out of it. In January or February we will see if anything was learned from the experience.

The President won by facing down the bullies, otherwise everybody lost. And the whole ludicrous fiasco could repeat itself in the new year!
I love the smell of face-palm in the morning!
"You ain't no Muslim bruv!"
the house leadership , John Boehner, with moderate republicans, then undercut the tea party republicans, by having democrats join them on a vote, to get the bill passed.
so the republican leadership torpedoed other republicans
Anti-Democracy advocate, Mixed government is the only good government
THE second point to be examined is, whether the [constitutional ]convention were authorized to frame and propose this mixed Constitution.
