"Hey guys I'm greedo. I like to pretend as if I know anything about this world even though the only hardships I've faced in my entire life is every girl I ask out rejects me because I defend pedoes and have 0 empathy. I've never worked a day in my life and my parents have given me everything I own, including this very computer I'm typing on right now! I deserve to get tax breaks over DTC's working class policeman father who has done 10 times as much as I have ever done!"
I’m not even allowed to date. I also don’t own a computer or iPad heck I don’t even have a phone.

1. You are proving his point.

2. How are you typing this?

As an outsider looking in, this entire process is incredibly disturbing and a poor reflection on American institutions and democratic process.

You're from the one country that can't critize us on that front.

Australia has never rushed legislation through at the dead of night like this, please elaborate.

I too appreciated how Joe Manchin took the floor to say "I'm a stupid asshole and even I can't vote for this thing"

Josephine Womanchin is a national treasure and I am deeply offended that you insulted her majesty.

It goes back to what the article about Boehner said. The GOP over promises and under delivers. It promises so much, that is is virtually impossible that any Democrat would go along with it, and thus they are left to using procedural gimmicks to skirt past the rules.

It’s great salt I should repealed now the voters are forced to elect republicans in blue states.          

The bill might be the death sentence for California, New Jersey, and New York Republicans.
At most we could lose 15 seats.

Your majority is 24.

If you're losing 15 seats from those three states, you're probably losing the house.

Especially since you guys are still tanking in the suburbs (see Va.)
We will gain 1-4 seats as well.

Your party "purism" will lead us into a cement wall, not a blue wall. Bernie and Perriello lost, get over it. Blue dogs may not be in charge, but at least the party as a whole is still in decent establishment hands.

You really think that will happen?

Hint: It won't. Because the only Republicans who could get elected that way are Baker-types. And the GOP is done with nominating sane people.

Not in those kinds of states.

No, they aren't.

Politician from opposite party in states won by the President tend to do very well in the mid-terms.

Can't be worse than this current horsesh!t, especially in our current position.

Also we might want to try it, cuz right now, this is like cauliflower level toxic stuff for congressmen these days.
