  •  Please don't use the term "under the bus" again... (0+ / 0-)

    It is the most overused term since 2008 and it is time to kill it.

    If you mean, the President has determined he can get a deal without progressive support, please say that instead of "under the bus".


    Tax and Spend I can understand. I can even understand Borrow and Spend. But Borrow and give Billionaires tax cuts? That I have a problem with.

      since I'm more interested in the effect of the deals on people's lives (including mine) than I am in politics as a chess game amongst wealthy privileged guys sitting in white buildings 12 mi south of me.

      I'm not averse to analyzing the chess game, but the reason I come to this site is so that I can assess how the game is going to affect ordinary people like myself. If I think we're being thrown under the bus as the result of a deal, I'll say so.

      No offense intended.

      if necessary for years; if necessary, alone
