    We will do it all over again, I'm sure you are right. The good news is, every time the GOP tries this obstructionist BS, they end up looking like shit compared to the Dems, and the President.

    Did they win the debt ceiling negotiations that led to the sequesters?  Did they win this?  They want to bring destroy the economy by holding the debt ceiling hostage again in two months.  Fine.  That's two months closer to the mid-terms than this fiasco was.

    Meanwhile, the goons over on are saying the exact same thing about what their side did.  It doesn't mean you are wrong, but the goal should be to govern, not to win the political "game".

      is that peoples' lives are being played with by people who by and large either do not care or will be totally unaffected if the constituent they're supposed to be representing won't be able to eat tomorrow or see a doctor.  UI benefits were spared....for awhile.  

      There's only so much cutting a net can endure until it can no longer catch a falling person with any reliability.  

      What I would like to see, and I am getting the feeling I probably will not see, is a Congress or a President willing to come out and knuckle to bone fight for the poor and middle class.  

      They've kicked this damned can down the road how many times now, with basic services of government and the benefits many need just to make ends meet under threat each time they go to kick again?
