5. Do you know if this is true? I heard on Ed Schultz (I know, I know, but
he is all I can get in my car). He seems to think that if we use the F option, that the repukes will use the nuclear option to push everything through, like Patriot Act II, permanent tax cuts, etc. I don't even know where to look something like this up.
