    it's a bad idea for people to expect an Obama veto if any version of this makes it to his desk. Most likely it would be some hybrid of the two bills and if that's the case Obama will most likely sign it, just like the NDAA. Some people who hear that Obama has threatened a veto will be tempted to be complacent thinking "Obama's got this." Well, I beg to differ.

    "I wish I could tell you, in the midst of all of this, that President Obama was waging the kind of fight against these draconian Republican proposals that the American people would like to see. He is not." -- Senator Bernie Sanders

    •  where'd you get your degree in Prophesy? (6+ / 0-)

      Or is your precognition score better than p < .05?

      We don't know what Obama is going to do.  Probably even the First Lady does not know what he's going to do.

      What we DO know is what WE can do: email, phone calls, petitions, protests, the whole nine yards.  GOTV, more better Democrats.  

      There's no excuse for not doing what WE can do.  

      "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.

        It's the same damn thing, over and over.

        No longer rating comments, thanks to a drunk fucktard moderator whose ass I will not kiss.

        the Senate will vote on within weeks at most?

        Sometimes the word salad just goes to very silly places.

        Your vote is your consent.

          Deluge the Senate and WH with phone calls & email today.

          Make reference to GOTV for this election.

          Then more better Democrats in November.

          Sheesh, do I have to spell it out like dialing instructions?  "Lift receiver, listen for dial tone, insert 25-cents and dial the desired number...."

          "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.
