    Who feels good about what just happened in Washington?

    So, the bill has passed; Obama will sign.

    How do you feel about it?
    2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
    2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.
    2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.

    Don't like the bill

    If this bill helps then I would be glad, but I am not going to hold my breath--
    This bill COULD be better if there was Bipartisanship on it, however, Pelosi played like a stubborn child.

    You know what? I posted this today. TODAY:

    http://www.debatepolitics.com/1057923754-post200.html

    At that time, on Barack Obama's Change.gov website, this was still visible:

    End the Practice of Writing Legislation Behind Closed Doors: As president, Barack Obama will restore the American people's trust in their government by making government more open and transparent. Obama will work to reform congressional rules to require all legislative sessions, including committee mark-ups and conference committees, to be conducted in public. By making these practices public, the American people will be able to hold their leaders accountable for wasteful spending and lawmakers won't be able to slip favors for lobbyists into bills at the last minute.
    This passage disappeared into the ether . . . today.

    I don't know what your "day" is in relation to my "day", as it seems I am in a different time zone.

    I seriously do not think that Obama has very much control of Nancy Pelosi and those goons within the Democratic party who have decided to party without the Republicans.

    I think Obama needs to seriously do something about this, and save himself some embarrassment; however, I think there is a fear in the administration that it would show a rift in the Democrat party.

    I would respect Obama standing up to that slag and the perception of a rift over him simply allowing goonish tactics like what were played here today.

    I seriously think Pelosi's head on a pike would be the only satisfactory response.

    you would respect it. But the G.O.P would not sit idle and not mistake an opportunity to retake some seats.

    ...
    can we please find a way to rid ourselves of Pelosi? She has to be soliciting gay sex somewhere.

    She is Obama's Cheney. I had bad feelings when she became speaker and I had worse feelings when Obama won the election and they were mostly over her and Reid. Mainly her.

    She's a spoiled little **** and she will ruin this country if she doesn't get rubbed out by a scandal or some other lucky twist of fate like a plane crash.

    The house and senate are already at the bottom of the barrel in terms of being morally bankrupt...I still have dispicable memories of Ted Kennedy's treatment of our past president...

    Anyone in the political platform should show public respect to any president and use the votes to show their opinions...this country is an embarrassment and becoming a good example of what any communist country would not want to become

    I do not like the bill I do not like how it was passed. They used this "oh no the sky is gonna fall" tactic to try to rush it passing in order to sneak in as much pork and unrelated spending as possible and before there is really any serious debate on whether or not we really need this bill.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
