  •  And when Boehner shuts down the government (0+ / 0-)

    not on principle, but because he wants to keep his corner office...because I don't think he has an ethical bone in his body...how does that help? I have a son who can't make his bills but will get a couple of furlough days this month, and he isn't really "needy" the way the folks down the road are...

    We aren't on opposite sides, just juggling idealism vs pragmatism.

    Ultimately, I think that nothing will pass. The whole thing will be band-aided. And (I hope and pray) the stink of what the GOP is doing will cause them to lose the House in 14. Then a real plan will be passed that closes loopholes, negotiates drug prices, raises the "cap" on income on which ss is paid, brings (now legal) new immigrants into the system to change our demographics, and solves the problem for generations.

    We aren't really disagreeing. You are just more idealistic than I am. It may be an age gap. We want the same thing.
