  •  If "putting Republicans on the spot" (6+ / 0-)

    Had ever, in the history of this congress actually worked to either amend their behavior, or produce compromise, I'd go along with this reasoning.  But Republicans DON'T CARE.  They just go looking for another "spot".  Otherwise we wouldn't even be having the hypocritical sight of Republicans who opposed the law (ACA) that prohibits insurance companies from randomly canceling policies, now demanding a law that prohibits insurance companies from randomly canceling policies.
    Democrats really should give up the idea that Republicans can be "put on the spot", or shamed into working with the Democrats.  It simply never works.

    •  B-b-but THIS time, everyone will see what mean (0+ / 0-)

      jackasses they are, loudly announce "Not voting RePug again" and RePugs will see the error of their ways - apologizing for all past misdeeds...

      This echos digby who today pointed out the error of Dem/Liberal habitual premature celebrating.
