  •  Anger on Facebook (4+ / 0-)

    One of my Facebook groups was full of very angry people citing the cuts to veterans pensions in the budget deal. They blamed our Senators Reed and Whitehouse. This should be a warning to Democrats that caving to Republicans just gets them blamed for the results.

    •  There is a lot of anger on all sides. (4+ / 0-)

      Right now, it seems like they are all trying to get an upper hand with different bills. Dems are adding things that Republicans can't accept and visa versa. The hope, I'm sure, is that one of those bills will make it to a vote and one party or the other will be stuck having to vote no against veterans again. It's why I'm so strongly pushing HR 3790 - it could actually pass.

      I wish progressives would pick up on this angle. Just saw a new ad today that is very harsh against President Obama. If things don't start moving soon, he is going to get a lot of backlash.
