It's obvious the Senate is far more enlightened than the House at this moment in history. House Republicans put forth a repulsive Conservative bill that stinks, then shoved it through. Even some Republicans in the House opposed it. The economic realities don't favor Republican solutions, yet this clueless segment persists. Good move by the Senate. "Ideological purity does not solve problems."

In general, the Dems have the superior plan. Dems are right. President is in the right as usual. Pubs desperately seeking ways to trick the american people into believing that Dems and the President are problematic, when in actuality it is the GOP that wrecked the economy between 2000-2008, then obstructed its repair between 2008-2012. In all, Pubs continue to be staggeringly worthless in helping solve the problems that plague this nation, problems they either created or worsened.

The senate has yet tp aubmit anyhting noe has the president.Its likely that the Reid bill is alos dead o arrival in the house. Moody's just warned that they will put a nedative because frankl neither the house or senate bill goes far enough i cutting the debt.Reids cartainly just kicks the can down the rtoad once more. The democrats have yet to see that their spending much of which will hit harder witht eh healthcare bill i comeig years are killig thsio econmoy and mounting the defcxit.the CBO just reproted that the healthcvare bill will raise governamnt healthcare spending 8% which is alot of money we don't have.Buying stufff we can't afford like many homeowners and credit card users;no difference.

I wouldn't call the side that actually proposed raising the retirement age to 67 "in the right". The GOP plan is garbage, yes, but Reid's plan is only marginally better.

The Senate is almost always a bit more thoughtful and mature than the house. And thank goodness for that.

Yeah that stupid thing where we try and balance the budget with an amendment instead of continuing to spend like crack whores.

They depend on welfare, class warfare and a giant government of union employees to make up their vote, why not just say the truth?

They are NOT there for the taxpayer.

Nothing thoughtful about them, all of them right now, are acting as if they are spoled rotten brats, the whole lot of them all of them on both sides, babies that have to get their way, no in between, the whole pizza.

And what about House Republicans? They are for corporations making billions in profits yet paying zero in taxes, no regulatory protections, and shipping our jobs overseas. Let's face it, neither side has the back of the American citizen.
