  •  ACA wouldn't have been repealed anyway. (3+ / 0-)

    Big Pharma, Big Insurance, and Corporatists loved it and still do. If the Republicans tried to repeal it, lobbyists would descend from the heavens and put a quick stop to that. The House keeps on putting it up for repeal because it gets them votes from their sick and twisted followers.

    As long as it takes 60 votes to get anything done...nothing is going to get done, except legislation that actively and directly hurts the 99%.

    So prepare for more cuts to the programs that keep us at least somewhat afloat. Because the Corporatist wing of the Dems and the Republican sociopaths are going to get together in a quiet room and take that all away from all of us.

    This Filibuster "Reform" is total and utter bullshit and Harry Reid, the Villagers, and the Republicans know it. So fuck all of them.

    The Grand Bargain must be stopped at all costs to protect the 99%.
