This seems... sensational to the core.

The opposite of a loose-loose would actually be a tight-tight.

This is factually incorrect. If you look at the records (or if you just followed cspan a few years ago) you would know that the aca was debated in 5 committees, subject to hours of bipartisan debate, open to expert independent assessment, and public hearings. The actual bill was available for the public to read ahead of time too. Your false statement is based on something pelosi said that was taken out of context and cut off. If you don’t believe me, check the federal registry.

Democracy dies when those elected serve their own interests instead of the needs of their constituents.

This isn't finished. The house and senate now go to conference.

But that didn't happen. It took a year of public hearings before it even came to a vote

Easy to dismiss when it doesn't matter to you, until it does. Take education away from minorities and you'll end up with unemplyable people who eventually turn to crime, which fills the for profit prisons, win-win for racists and corrupt people. Loose-loose for all who value humans equal rights or even pretend to be good Christians

You're expecting them to come back with something less repulsive than a combination of these two bills? The final product is going to be so toxic we are going to be lucky to still have any social programs after they are done. It's sad really.

How dare you drag your facts into his whataboutism...

i am against the tax bill that is going to lower my taxes by about 5k a year. but neither of our opinions matter because we arent a big corporation

Even if you were right, this would be whataboutism. And by the way, you're not right. You're actually very wrong. The ACA as it stands is almost exactly what the GOP wanted and not what Obama wanted. But hey, why look at the facts when you can deflect and change the subject? Fucking amateur.

this is a Bob Woodward quote

given your username, you should read up on him

im a life long republican but the party has changed and i can no longer support its current form (still not a democrat though). while i agree that there is a huge divide in society, splitting into two different nations is an absurd idea. a much easier solution is abolishing the two party system that got us into this mess.

And now u can't deduct those taxes on my federal return, so I just pay More

Democracy Dies in Darkness

America Trumped by Putin.

*cried

No. It's obviously the end of the world.
