    Pretend that we have a unicameral Congress and that the House doesn't exist?

      use one of the bills already passed in the House that the Senate failed to take up before 2009?

      If we are going to be playing theater games - why not make them dynamic?

      If the president thinks sticking a bunch of Americans behind him while delivering a shitty off the cuff speech makes good optics how does having a debate on the floor of the Senate until midnight tonight make for optics?

      Harry Reid should be on the Senate floor right now trying to pass a bill that will extend benefits. Then send it to the great orange crying one and attempt to force him to pass it now.
