    “Best System Ever”

    Wait… we’re not talking about the ACA anymore, are we?

    To drive home Ted’s point, the House GOP passed a rule shortly before the shutdown that prevents anyone but the majority leader (Eric Cantor) from calling a vote on the Senate’s budget bill.

    @Uncle Joe

    Raising the intriguing question: How did they get a majority to vote for that rule when a large minority of Republicans are terrified of what’s happening, and that minority plus the Democrats form a majority that COULD have voted against the rule?


    Are they listening to the same unbiased polls that correctly predicted a landslide victory for Romney?

    @Uncle Joe

    Correct my if i’m wrong, but don’t budget bills have to originate in the House? So, how can they vote on anything coming from the senate? Or do they use scissors and paste to replace “Senate Bill SB-xxxx” with “House Resolution HR-yyyy”? Like, you know, in Kindergarten?

    I said it before and i say it again: the phrase “Homeless Vet” should give every American a) pause b) shame c) determination to eliminate the problem…

    The House passes a bill and sends it to the Senate. The Senate makes changes and sends it back to the House.

    This is a good system IF good people are elected to it. Our elected idiots do a terrible job.

    This time Rall has nailed it! I am afraid that the system is broken beyond repair though.

    After the ‘revolution’: the constitution is deemed illegal. Revolutionaries go door to door to confiscate guns and use them to kill the owner and their families. All independent thought is outlawed. The taliban eventually takes over America.
    Republicans having gotten their wish are soon shot as too reactionary.

    Of course no one in Congress reads a bill they are mostly a bunch of illiterate liars… err,… lawyers. I always get those two mixed up…
