    as something to debate because he wants austerity? 0 Wall St executives prosecuted? that kind of victory? Or is it Dolecare-Romneycare Heritage Foundation-insurance reform? Was it the backroom deals with Big Pharma killing Byron Dorgan reimportation amendment? Or was it how this WH lobbied to kill Brown Kaufman keeping TBTF?

    BTW your history is wrong. Huey Long's filibuster of Glass Steagall banking Act in 1933 to make it stronger with FDIC for 3 weeks was one of the longest filibusters ever so yeah you're the one with muddled history.

    Anyway, my diary is strong which is why you didn't really read but one paragraph and refuted almost nothing. That tells me all I need to know so no need to continue here.

    I don't negotiate grand bargains with deficit terrorists!

      was not really a part of the New Deal, it passed before the inauguration, it was included to show the bipartisan nature of the Congress in the 1930s...

      Deals were made before the healthcare bill to keep big pharma money on the sidelines, this is, again, how shit gets done and why reform wasn't rolled like Hillarycare was.

      Adults accept that politics isn't a perfect process and that few Presidents have the advantages and the historic stage FDR had.
