Well you can thank the TP, Rush, and most of the current GOP leadership. They'd rather vote on ACA 40 times to no avail than to make things better for the rest of us !! Remember if things get better for us, it helps BO, and they CANNOT allow that to happen !!
Yeah there's always some partisan bickering, but the GOP has taken this to "A-Rod on steroids" !!
Like Frank said last night on Maher... until the electorate starts booting out the extremists (Paul, Ryan, Cantor, Castro, McConnell ... long list) , they'll keep right on doing it !! The electorate HAS TO ACT !!
Hold up, isn't it Harry Reid that calls the senate to order?
_________________________ I used to think it was terrible that life was unfair. Then I thought what if life were fair and all of the terrible things that happen came because we really deserved them? Now I take comfort in the general unfairness and hostility of the universe.
The ACA votes were in the GOP House - (Boehner) and Reid's hands are tied because of the filibuster rule (60 votes). Hence Frank hit the nail on the head- as long as the voters keep electing "the crazies" (aka Palin, Bachmann, Angle, Ryan, Rubio, Cruz, Paul....etc) NOTHING will get accomplished !!
I think C. Matthews is right (last night). The next GOP POTUS nominee will be Ryan or the likes because they've come up short twice with moderates (McCain, Romney). The uber-conservatives will rule the 2016 primaries for President... and maybe many other slots. SO we may get our chance to see how that works out. THE only thing that might prevent this is if the GOP runs a slew of super-conservatives in 2014 and most lose badly and the Dems retake the House while holding onto the Senate. Then they might take a 2nd look, but as of now, they'll nominate a very hard rightie (Ryan, Rubio, Cruz) ! You can forget Christie or Bush. . . . and Perry ? ...don't make me laugh !
"If it turns out that President Barack Obama can make a deal with the most intransigent, hard-line, unreasonable, totalitarian mullahs in the world but not with Republicans? Maybe he’s not the problem."
