4. Well said.
I'm fed up, but it's time to pass this bill and get what we can. It's a start.

What's the alternative? If we pass nothing the Repubs win, and you can say a permanent so-long to any HCR.

I do hope that Obama has learned something from this mess - that he can't punt to Congress and let them do the water carrying for him. That mistake cost him huge, allowing the Repubs to gain an advantage.
