How about we wait for the conclusion of today's clusterfark before saying Republicans can't get anything done. I have a feeling today's vote will be successful for the GOP.
I'm also kind of curious to see the process following today's vote. I want to see what crazy amendments can be tacked on to this mess.

If only Republicans had the foresight to use the healthcare bill that Boehner created when he was in the legislature...

Are we assuming that the idea of GETTING something done was part of the plan?   I'm inclined to think that PROMISING something and needing to get re-elected again and again was the real plan.   If you DO something then you get judged by it's outcome,   It's so much better to be the ruling party and blame your predecessors.
 
2017-07-25 01:22:10 PM  
The good news about the vote today is that Senate Republicans are winning over their moderates by making the same argument that moderate House Republicans bought: "listen, whatever we pass isn't actually going to be the law, there are more steps to the process, the [Senate/conference] will take this and write an actually good bill you can vote for in good conscience, this is just you proving your disapproval of Obamacare."

All they want is a motion to proceed vote. Half the bills currently up for consideration have been deemed incompatible with reconciliation requirements by the parliamentarian but McConnell is ignoring it.

Nobody wants to be the person to blame when this fails to cross the finish line and everyone is trying to imagine a scenario where what they get is popular enough not to cost them their phoney baloney jobs.
 
2017-07-25 01:22:14 PM  
There were two reasons why Boehner couldn't get anything done:

1. He never had enough people to overcome a veto.
2. A video of him attempting to run his party, with an absurd amount of cuteness they in no way deserve:

We're very close to only being able to get sh*tty things done. Anything noble, worthwhile, or respectful doesn't have a chance. The worse and more STIGGINIT! the legislation, the more momentum it has.

We should all thank Christ that Republicans had the foresight to make 'bipartisanship' such an evil concept that they can't even come to an agreement between themselves.

It's crazy how I can only garner any shred of respect for many Republicans only after they quite their jobs and have no farks to give.

2017-07-25 01:40:13 PM  
Boehner got the sequester with a D President in office. This GOP can't even cut spending with total control of the government.

He's probably at home laughing his ass off at the new leadership that thought it could do better than he did.

Also, probably would have a beer with him, I'd bet he's actually ok at parties. Which is more than can be said for majority leader liftbro.

Why would you have any respect at all for someone who made a political career out of intentionally f*cking up the government, and then expresses regret that the government is f*cked up?

I'll have respect when they start committing seppuku.
 
2017-07-25 01:43:44 PM  
McConnell still won't say what bill he intends to push if he gets his Motion to Proceed. There's talk of a "skinny repeal" that would get rid of the ACA mandates and some of the taxes, which is farking asinine. All that would do is make the exchanges collapse faster than Trump's people can sabotage them, and drive up the deficit thanks to the stupid tax cuts.

No new laws or successful votes to continue vital programs.

Well, that may be, but Solomon himself couldn't get something passed through the Republican Congress.

Then again, Solomon wouldn't try, he'd just have them all cut in half.

I don't think they thought they could do better than him. He quit and nobody wanted the job. Ryan had to be pushed into it, he wanted to be President and Speaker of the House is not on that career path. But the only Republican who wanted it was some crazy guy from Florida whose biggest claim to fame was insisting hotels get rid of TVs in rooms he occupied so he wouldn't be tempted to watch porn, and only the Tea Party was willing to vote for that guy.

Poor John. He wasn't a pioneer in the long GOP campaign to subvert and hijack gubbmint. He wasn't in the game at the point that they thoight, maybe still think, they're on the cusp of Ultimate Triumph

He was just some middling, unpopular tool in between who ended up getting tossed because even other Republicans couldn't stand him any longer.

Of course the tea party would vote for that guy. The psychosexual issues those people have blow the mind.

It will just take until a party has a fillibuster-proof majority in the Senate and majority of the House, plus the presidency; or a solid two-thirds majority in both House and Senate, regardless of the presidency. This may or may not occur before another large-scale shooting civil war breaks out in the US.

(A simple majority willing to kill the filibuster counts as "filibuster proof".)
