  •  I accept your statement - logical and sane (8+ / 0-)

    but in the meantine, as a disabled Vietnam veteran who needs my VA Disability check on 11/1/2013 (as do al disabled veterans), I can tell you most sincerely, that my diagnosed Agent Orange related CAD/IHD (Heart Disease) is being affected by the tremendous stress of this pathetic situation in Washington D.C.  Multiply that by millions of veterans.  It is unconscionable that the US is suffering so much, needlessly.

    I lay the blame completely on the Republican Party - especially the House, and even more specifically, the Tea Party Caucus.  They are an existential threat to our nation and our people.

    Damn!

      should vocally and visibly protest what the GOP has been doing to them. Only by making the general public fully aware of what willful damage the GOP is needlessly and cruelly causing millions of Americans to advance its ideological, political and financial interests can we finally break its back.

      No more capitulation. This is the line. We hold it here.
