    Whoops. Republicans blew it again. They just can't get their act together. Sorry Donald, no 100 day big legislation for you. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. :D

    Yeah, I don't think they will ever have the votes on it because they can't please all their factions all at the same time. So until one or more factions are convinced to give up their principles, it just isn't going to happen.

    And even if it does, it's still a no-go in the senate. Why does everyone keep forgetting that detail?

    Exactly. They are engaging in a pointless exercise. I get that they are obsessed with destroying the previous president's legacy, but really they should be trying to fix it from average person's point of view, not a congressman's trying to score political points or adhere to some sort of political ideology.

    Yet, it was the Democrats who were seen as "out of touch". :rolleyes:

    In the garbage in, garbage out, department (heard on MSNBC):
    Rep Rooney (R Florida)- We have the best conservative, free market, States Right's health plan.
    Interviewer- Wasn't the free market the problem and reason for Obamacare?
    Rep Rooney- <deflection>

    This politician also said that we were strong before Obama, while hypocritically ignoring that his party did everything in their power to weaken Obama's Presidency.

    They definitely were not in touch enough to get Hillary elected. Ironically the Republicans were totally out touch, who if they had gotten their way nominating someone like Cruz as their man, they would have lost hugely. Unfortunately anarchy blew in their direction. I really regret Sanders did not get the Democratic nomination.

    Well, the Senate isn't as predictable as it used to be. The Ds got rid of the filibuster for non-supreme-court judicial appointees a few years back, and the Rs just got rid of the filibuster for supreme-court appointees. It's the D's turn to get rid of the next level of filibusters, but the R's might just move up the schedule a bit to get something they want passed...
