Aristocles: It would also be avoidable if the dems and BOB stood with the Republicans on this one and acted in the interests of, and in accordance with the will of, the people.Hint: Cruz isn't doing this because he supports Obamacare.
abb3w: I suppose it also would technically be possible to avoid if John McCain decides to break Ted Cruz's neck on the floor of the Senate, as that would forcibly punctuate the filibuster. However, that would be a significant breach of the usual Senate decorum.
Karac: Who is Bob?
SevenizGud: 12349876: We want kids with cancer whose parents only have $1,000 in savings to dieWTF are people with only $1K in savings doing having children? Obviously if you can only muster $1K, then you would have to be such a cesspool of shiatty genes that it would be unconscionable to have a child, since it is guaranteed to be a defective.If you can't show at least $100K in savings and you have a kid, then both the parents and the kid should be shot on the spot on general principle.
ferretman: Now rules matter to dems?

kg2095: What happened in the 1980s?
kg2095: SevenizGud: LordJiro: Yes, full steam ahead. Tank the economy because the Teabaggers can't stand the thought of poor people getting healthcare.Uhm, I was thinking more along the lines of I'll pay for my healthcare and you pay for yours, and fark you if you think I should be responsible for your oreo-guzzling ass.And it will be better for the economy, not worse.Is that why Canada with it's socialist health system has overtaken the United States in per capita GDP. Not to mention Sweden, Switzerland, Luxembourg. And Australia, Britain, Ireland and even Hong Kong catching up.And that's trend is not recent either - the US took the number one spot from the UK in 1910 and lost it to Sweden in the 1980s. What happened in the 1980s?
badhatharry: Not sure, but we've never had a law this bad before.
Dimensio: Impossible. Sarah Palin assured me that the law establishes these panels. A spokesman for her even cited Section 1233 of HR3200!
Aristocles: Corvus: Remember when the Republicans demanded the Senate pass a budget bill? They said it was SO important to pass a real budget and not pass things via CRs... Then the Senate did and the Republicans refused to have a reconcile committee because they would be forced to compromise and wouldn't be able to hold the US hostage to get their way.No one is mentioning this is how we got here. If we passed a real budge like the Republicans were demanding for and then refused to do we wouldn't be having this problem now,You mean how BOB and the dems forced a crummy law down Americans' throats?

SevenizGud: Dimensio: SevenisGud is also saying that if a single mother (due to the death of her spouse) of two children, who works two jobs to provide for her family, is suddenly struck by a hit-and-run driver and suffers a broken leg and rendered unable to work, that she should suffer bankruptcy and the loss of her employment (due to her inability to work), and that she and her children should die destitute.She can put the kids up for adoption, or make them a ward of the state.
Aristocles: falcon176: is it lib in here or is it just everybodyIt ain't everyone... I'm smackin down Farklib propagand left an right, but I'll save some for you should you care to partake.

Markoff_Cheney: bulldg4life: Looking at the politics tab for today is just one dumbass piece of idiocy after another.this is different from any other day how?it seems to be a constant stream of shiat, constantly flooding and never receding.[i.chzbgr.com image 400x400]
twat_waffle: Wouldn't the CR fall under reconciliation, and therefore not be subject to cloture?
