In response to tvoter's comment:
Look, try common sense. If the dems were serious about "negotiations" why not do it? The house sent over a bill that would pay for the govt but, wanted the senate to do some things like:
drop the tax on medical equipment
put themselves back under the law they wrote
delay the law (as has been done with unions, big corps and the legislature) for a year
Why just demand a "clean bill" with no negotiation? Put politicians back in it and stop the tax on medical equipment for year!!??? Or at least one of those but, NOOOO they would not negotiate because they think it will hurt republicans more than them.
Its not about doing whats right or negotiations its about f-in politics and the same ole b-s!
You really are freakin clueless.
The Senate has voted on every bill the HoR has sent over.
They voted out the amendments that the HoR added and sent the bill back to HoR.
The HoR refuses to vote on the Senate passed bill.
So why do the wingnuts insist on not negotiating?
the drunken Tan Man Speaker is too scared of the T-Tards who would vote him out if he allowed this.
