    Not surprising: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013...-cancels-vote/

    Back pay for furloughed workers(in other words a free paid vacation), raising the debt ceiling until 2/7/14, no provisions for Obamacare except income verification for those getting subsidies. That's the bare bones of it but once again the GOP is showing why their party is dead.

    If it's any consolation at at all, I now know how it feels for a welfare queen who doesn't want to work to be stealing from my pocketbook. That's exactly what I've felt about Obama and Congress this past two weeks, like it was theft.

    It does look like they're be making extra sure that those who receive substidies actually need them.

    Look at it another way. If it's implemented in 2014 and it's as horrible as Republicans say it's going to be, then the Democrat's ass is grass come November.

    No, because the attack dogs in Obama's media will go out of their way to blame Republicans and the brain dead voters will believe them and vote Democrat. It's the same old song and dance. Obama got re-elected even though he had the worst record since Carter. People don't care, all they want is free stuff and that's what they're voting for.

    The people who are getting subsidies include members of congress and their staffs. Apparently, they work harder than we do.

    This amazes me Ody but it doesn't shock me. It absolutely amazes me how often the GOP shoots themselves in the foot. Democrats don't have to do anything, the GOP is doing all the work. Someone on Fox News was right when they said that had the government not been shut down, the headlines on every newspaper would have been what a clusterfuck Obamacare is and the willful media wouldn't be able to hide from it. This country is doomed and the GOP is piloting the ship.

    Don't get me started on congress. My inner lefty came out the other night at home on that subject. You don't want to see my inner lefty come out. It's bad. I wasn't just mad at Republicans, Democrats as well.

    They would have had to have been opposed to what the Democrats are doing for that to have taken place, only a handful of Republicans are seriously against raising the debt ceiling and funding Obamacare fully.
    We have a one party system complete with a false party who's only job is to resist just enough to fool the population into believing it is a 2 party system.

    The Democrats know who they are, the Republicans are whatever they are told to be for however long need be.
