      fighting you can be useful, but you can't give too much or you get steam rolled.

      Democrats have no ideological moorings to anchor themselves to and to return to, over and over, to push a message that people can believe in. It's hard to be persuasive when you don't stand for anything.

      Democracy - 1 person 1 vote. Free Markets - More dollars more power.

          when HE proposed it? Your comments become stranger and stranger. Truly does look like what someone said above, a contortionist playing chess with himself.

              legislation to the floor matters, and position taking doesn't. Now who's focused on minutiae? I suppose voters dont listen to the positions politicians take on the news but instead spend hours poring through the THOMAS database on all the legislation that was brought to the floor the past2 or 4 years?

                Represents anything other that HIS admin's proposal. I think the Progressive caucus, just as one example, would beg to differ.

                These are political instruments solely intended to advance the goals of the parties that produce them. The President's or WH's budget does not necessarily represent the budget of the party. In fact, historically, there  have always been numerous competing budgets, as is the case now.
