    I disagree, if it hadn't been for the fight, there'd been no cuts at all. It'd be too scary if both parties totally agreed with each other.

    I think it's interesting that none of the liberals are concerned about whatever was cut. I guess all those govt programs really aren't as important as the Dems tried to get us to believe this week, right?

    I have no problem with them disagreeing. I have issue with the idiocy that they do. The bs accusations, the attempts to sneak stuff in, and the trying to "win". This isn't a competition.

    Many of them aren't. Even PP could probably go 100% private funding in the near future. The difference is defunding through planning intead of cutting the jugular and seeing if it bleeds out or survives.

    Yeah, but with two nearly polar opposite parties, fights are inevitable. In some ways it's good, but I agree that, in a lot of ways, it's just annoying.

    Really, you think PP will ever voluntarily give up it's fed funding? BTW, there's like 1.6 billion dollars in tax dollars that PP cannot account for. Where's the responsibility on PP's part to use fed funds wisely?

    Did it, or did it not cut the budget and begin that process? Why the need to spin things?


    I know, you just can't bring yourself to credit Republicans, but did I imagine all those complaints from Dems, this week about having to make cuts?
    I have not denied that republicans get a share of the credit. Straw men are weak arguments. In fact, only you are trying to deny any party in this credit. Kinda ironic, no?

    And again with the straw men. What was cut was important, and having a say in what was cut was important.
