    demand and the stop the great evil of birth control demand, I'm sure we're close to settling this.

    Everyone here should know that the only thing left is amendments that restrict abortion so much, it's not really available anywhere, and Republicans will have everything they want and pass a spending bill.

      Kevin McCarthy (aka Worst House Whip Ever) indicated that's the next route they take once the Senate nukes all their new B.S. and send it back to them.

      Once that's exhausted, I think we'll see the Drunk Weepy Oompa-Loompa throw in the towel. I think he has to go through all of Cruz's wish list before he can finally make them see it isn't going to fly.

      •  That will have to be taken up once (0+ / 0-)

        we hit shutdown.
        Congress has to keep working even in shutdown, otherwise it would never reopen, right?
        This will be the next pile o' dung they try to pass off as a bill but it won't be the last.

        If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

    •  Why would anyone assume (5+ / 0-)

      that if the Dems caved to the "one-year delay" provision, that the next CR wouldn't have "defund forever" language. This is where the Dems must take a stand.

      It's not the breaths you take - it's how you breathe.
