Yup, those evil republicans. They prevented the democrats from passing their socialized medicine bill...even when the democrats had a filibuster proof majority--thus, the repubs could do nothing but watch.
Bad bad republicans.....
I hate to agree with you but its true. The democrats act as if they actually have to have 60 frigging votes to get ANYTHING DONE.
The republicans pushed thru tons of stuff with only 51 votes.
So they threaten to fillibuster. Make em actually stand up there in chambers with a pee bucket and talk all night and see how fast that would stop. The democrats are the Washington Generals. They take a dive every time. The diebold machines only come up with good numbers for them when the corporate fat cats have a mission for them. Last time with Clinton it was Nafta WTF, and welfare "reform". Things only a democrat could pull off. This time it is Obama's job to go after Social Security Medicare and Medicaid.
