House Democrats’ long-simmering frustration with the slow pace of the Senate has begun to boil over, with a broad swath of Democratic representatives accusing their Senate colleagues of failing both their party and their country.

In the past it was always the Senators getting angry at the Reps for screwing around. How times change.

I like the way it is. It gives time for the people they work for (you know us) to see what their up to.

i have to give john dean credit on the health care bill. he is standing against it because he sees that it is an insurance entitlement program, as he put it "bigger than AIG". we certainly need gridlock on bad bills like the health care bill, which is going to screw over the little guy (who gets to pay for years before it would even be implemented, and what is fair about that?)

I am convinced that we need the Republicans to win only to create gridlock in 2010.

These arrogant, power hungry, greedy so called leaders we have, need to be stripped of power to any degree possible. Right now the only hope is gridlock.

No lie. Too bad they're not out of session so that we can breathe easy.

Right. And watch him become fodder to his party. They eat their own.
