    bill...then where were they yesterday, when they had an opportunity to pass a clean bill, by voting against the poison bill (delaying Obamacare).

    A lot of this kibuki theater stuff makes no sense to me whatsoever. The House passes a CR last week with an amendment delaying Obamacare, then the Senate takes out the Obamacare measure and passes a similar CR, then, just a week after passing a CR with an amendment delaying Obamacare, the House does the same thing a week later. And we have made no progress forward.

    This is truly a sick little game these nutjobs are playing.

      that they have to let the Teabaggers try it their way first, and only act after two or three rounds of that, to move off the dime.

      I don't know how likely that is because, as I type, the Rs have already announced that if the Senate does to Saturday's work what it did to last week's work, a third round is already assembled and on the way to being launched, with the same ends and a probably a few more distractors and weepy tears items like paying for soldier's salaries (and the entire MI complex) but not their meals or gas or ammunition for any of them.
