Sergio_Van_Lukenstein: Does anybody have the website that this fight is streaming on? I really want to see it, but I don't have cable.
BalugaJoe: GOP is against helping the disabled.
Mentat: This will be Obama's Waterloo! Again!
coco ebert: What's all this then?
inglixthemad: Welcome everyone to the fight.Tonight's ticket has Mitch "the Turtle" McConnell trying to put a hard shell of protection up against the man that knows how to hold'em, Harry "the Gambler" Reid!
Krustofsky: Guess I should be happy that I have two part-time jobs in addition to my full-time job.
Debeo Summa Credo: Take your infrastructure fairy dust elsewhere. Nobody is buying it here.
The Why Not Guy: beer4breakfast: It's a farking disgrace that this is now how US federal budget negotiations work. The sequestration that was put in place to try to force both parties to work together didn't even even do that, since we're yet again at the same last minute hand wringing BS we had last time. And again, the best that can be hoped for is a last minute agreement that simply kicks the can down the road. What a farking joke for what these politicians say is, "the greatest country on Earth". Yet those same politicians, even after they agree to put triggers in place to force action on their part, still can't do it. Feh, absolutely disgraceful.Take a look at why that is. There's a big chunk of America that doesn't see working with the other side as a good thing. They see it as weakness, and they reward it with primary challenges.Speaking of, I think I'll have some tea.
cameroncrazy1984: Debeo Summa Credo: waste on other spending here.What if we "wasted" it on infrastructure spending? That would have a double effect on the economy.
Orange-Pippin: /looking for turtle pics//adding one :)
Farker Soze: It would be better if it was the Turtle vs a big Spider. Because they float down there, they all float.
RoxtarRyan: As a taxpayer, I have to ask, why are these assholes getting paid? They continuously fail to make a budget. If I had a job responsibility that included "making sure out finances are in order and ensuring we can pay the bills", and I fail to do so repeatedly, I'd be fired.
Curious: OneBrightMonkey: Also, there are dairy subsidy issues at hand too (the so-called "dairy cliff")and some veterans bills and some other must have stuff. all put off to apply pressure to the fiscal side and now that it isn't all hell is going to break loose.i live in LA and if i had the money i'd buy the state party email list and send each and everyone of them a snarky email.
namatad: The original sequester plan WAS the compromise.
