    Pass our trade deals so our corporate sponsors can make even more money, or we won't allow your nominee of the commerce department (coincidentally the department that regulates these types of things) to be confirmed! Yippie!!! Right wing terrorism? Hostage taking? Business as usual?

    We will pass the debt limit increase, but only if you agree to our massive changes to the nations social programs!

    At some point, people are going to see this type of domestic terrorism blackmail for what it is.

    It'll be a recess appointment and we'll go on with life.

    Nope, Republicans are holding pro-forma meetings and therefore not allowing congress to recess to prevent recess appointments.

    That's a load of crap. When are we going to learn that these people do not care about the country?

    I don't know if I'd go so far as to call it terrorism.

    But blackmail is a pretty good word. :mad:

    Ah well. More fodder for the Democrats to use over the next 17 months.

    They really seem to be putting a lot of energy into helping the Dems win the next election. I like that.
