Fascinating, isn't it? And she had the Daily Kos kids and MoveOn libs egging her on. And not a peep about hypocrisy from the MSM.

It's good when you have the media in your pocket, eh libs? Especially with the DOJ cracking the whip on them.

It's no wonder why some think that the {R}s are for the rich and corporations. First major bill and they give the banks favorable legislation. And too add insult too injury raise the limits on contributions so the big boys can keep their pockets stuffed. Funny how the {R}s had a hissy fit over the large Obamacare bill that no one had time to read. I guess it is ok now to seek votes on 1,600 pg bill that no one has time too read.

This bill along with the Obama and {R} agenda of passing immigration reform and a new trade agreement is proof our leaders do not work for the American people.

Actually- I am seeing my more conservative friends more ticked at this bill. My FB friends were fuming over immigration EO language tucked in that was not only toothless but left it open to Obama's interpretation- wonder how he'll read it?

Apparently Michael Savage went on a tirade about the about the huge cap for giving to political parties was to defang the tea party and assure the R hierarchy could beat back any challenge.

Then the final flight of glory was Wall Street concessions- main line Rs would have no problem with this but anything that leads to another bailout would be against TP principles. And letting banks used federally insured funds as collateral seems to leave that as a possibility.

At any rate- in case anyone doubts it- our government just shown us that they are across the board in it for themselves and their big money donors. Not the people and not the will of the people. The far left and far right look ready to explode to my eye. And I hope every single person who went along with this bill catches absolute hell. Unfortunately the anti-Obamacare crowd will probably be the only people to do so.

I predict the real loser might be Hillary- I've seen countless liberals eviscerating Obama and commenting that they've held their nose and swallowed hard to vote for some of the current Dems. The banking lobbyist written portion and EPA slashing are a giant step too far for most of them. And they claim they aren't going to do so any more if this is what is delivered. The basic premise is they no longer care about electability if the Dems produce crap to the right of Richard Nixon.

She is standing on her ground. These issues will leave us open to 2007-2009 all over again. I suggest you all to start watching your money very closely. If the senate leaves this mess in the Cromnibus you will need to start looking for places to hide your cash.

Exactly- only the biggest of partisan hacks could call this bill a win since it saved Boehner embarrassment.

Everyone else is fuming from both sides of the aisle. And if the Rs think they can win without paying the tab for immigration and Obamacare campaign promises they are crazy.

And any Dem who wonders why their voters do not vote should have this budget attached to their forehead with a frickin railway spike.

I want to see who in the House voted for this thing and I will volunteer to run them out of office.

Her views were parroted by many in the media.

Now Warren and some of the same parrots in the media are now justifying a potential shutdown as patriotic and pro-middle class if it were to be over liberal reasons.


How many Democrats have intelligence and integrity to NOT flip flop such egregiously in such a short time?
It is the media that allows EW and other dems to switch position without being taken to task.

Without the media prodding on the people's behalf the nation will be lost.

"Threatening" to shutdown the government as opposed to actually hutting down the government because you don't like ACA that already passed congress are quite different. Rolling back regulations on the financial industry that put people out of work and caused one of the greatest economic down turns in our history, maybe you can see where these legislators should have been taken to task.
