    But you don't neglect the proposal that is most likely to be favorable to your side (the House's version) while being obsessed with the proposal you don't care for as much (the Senate's version), which is what the left is doing.

    That's my point. You don't say, "We won't even talk to people who vote for this. We will never support you again unless you give us what we want." Instead you find friends, craft as strong of a piece of legislation as possible, and then think about bargaining in good faith.

    The left is so obsessed with the Senate, that it is giving it all the power. And in doing so, the left is undermining its own cause.  

    •  well, we watch the moving target... (0+ / 0-)

      and until the end of this week, it was the Senate.

      Besides, they are so easy to be angry with.

      But you are absolutely right.
