    And then go to the Senate and watch Harry Reid continue to not pass a budget!

    And they wonder why everybody hates them.

    I work for the Navy, and while I’m enjoying the forced Furlough Leave-Without-Pay day off each week, losing a day’s pay every week really hurts. Next election I’m voting against every congressman who didn’t try to resolve the budget fubar.

    Sounds like a good plan, just make sure you aren’t voting in the same type you are getting rid of.

    If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again (until it gets done) the repubs have taken a lesson from the dems playbook. Change things by persistent drips until you weary everyone of their resistance and they go along just to get rid of you. Thrity-three you say, I’m looking forward to the big 100. Now there’s a milestone you can celebrate.

    Any relation to Carl Barks?

    Sometimes it’s more important to kill bad bills than to pass good ones. I think that’s a quote from Socrates…and something about hemlock…but I forget the rest.

    This toon is a rerun, the bill has been brought up several times since.
    .
    And as a bad bill it is killed each time. Obvious even in republican comments on this board but not to the republican congressmen themselves.

    No relation, just a life-long fan. I loved his Uncle Scrooge stories back in the 50s when I was just 8 and had no idea who he was. I met a Barks collector in the 70’s who clued me in. I have a big coffee-table book of his stories. My real name is similar, so Barks seemed perfect for my user name for a comics website.

    I misspoke creating some confusion. Perhaps I should have said…Sometimes it’s more important to kill bad laws than to pass good ones. I believe that if not for a super majority in both Houses of Congress the original Bill would have been read, debated and would never have passed in it’s present form. If not for Harry Reid the House Bill would be brought to floor and perhaps Senators would lay aside their egos and vote their conscience to repeal or modify the Law to some workable form. The Law, as such, is unaffordable and unmanageable. Of course, such a bill would be vetoed at the Executive level but I suspect in 2016 either of the parties holding that office will see the sanity in approving such legislation.

    I’ll betcha none of the folks who comment on the ACA have read it. Am I right? Probably including most of Congress.

    They had to read it to know what is in it.

    Now they know what is in it. Mostly……
