    Bullshit. After putting up with McConnell and Boehner and the psychotics running the GOP, nothing Democrats do is absurd. Print the coins, abolish the filibuster 100%, and tell them to kiss our asses.

    Abolish The Filibuster Now!

      When a lunatic is holding a gun to your head, and you have an unorthodox way to disarm the lunatic, it doesn't seem so absurd.

      If Obama does it, I suspect it would be a last-ditch effort if the Republicans just stonewall.  But I am also guessing that the business community won't be happy with the Republicans playing these sorts of games, and they might force them to back down and stop screwing around.

      I'd like to see some ruthlessness plz.

      I ♥ President Obama. ~ Yes, we did. Again.
      NOW: Hands off SocSec, Medicare and Medicaid. NO Grand Bargain.
      Rich pay a bit more. DoD take a bit less. End war on Afghanistan sooner.
