22. Problem is that the meme around here only deals with Obama.....
not the Republicans, and actually, not even the Democrats either.

I remember well when the tax cut discussions were closed off in congress,
as so many were scared to even have that debate.

The difference is that some here have conveniently forgotten all of that.
