Huh? 
Without close study, this has "unconstitutional" all over it.  More than cowardice--it's called "treason".

Until Feb. 7.  Did anybody read that? 

After Feb. 7, this provision is moot.

The important part of this deal is that the sequester cuts are still in effect.

You continue to hang your hat on sequester because you do not understand sequester did not CUT anything from the budget, it just took a miniscule amount out of the 2013 budget.

Funny, thought you were out busy providing a living for you and your family.

So sequester cuts, which Democrats screamed and swore would bring down the country, are no big deal to you.

3% of the budget is more than the Republicans cut when they had the Congress and the Presidency.  I'd say that's quite a feat.

It isn't even close to being a major feat... we are 90 TRILLION in debt.

Just what I thought--inferring your time here includes your "work"

As for me, none of your business.  I jes done been did my time the hard way--for a startup in Silicon Valley -- doing the work to create what the rest of you enjoy as a luxurious necessity these days.

So my presence here is my down time, attempting (apparently with little success) to preserve the truth as I understand it.

Me?  I like the site and try to contribute to it's success,

I get it.  You hate politicians. 

Why are you on a political site?  Just to piss and moan?

I think you are preserving the truth and contributing to the success of GOPBR.

I do the same.  We agree on some things, disagree on others.  That's what keeps a site vibrant.

This is exactly why bills are posted for public viewing two days prior to being voted on and the president won't sign it for five days after it was voted on to ensure it has time to be reviewed....


....oh wait, that was a campaign promise. What was I thinking?

It will be a much shorter list to find the things they did Constitutionally than unconstitutionally. For the past few years, you could probably count the former on one hand.

Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!.....
...They have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own - brought in by parents at young age. Plus BIG border security

You will survive.  For what purpose?  More capitulation and back-door deals to keep the trough full and flowing for the selected feeders?
You're using some loaded words Famous.  I wish I didn't have to say I'm a father of 5,  I love my country, and I want a bright future for everybody.  I don't know your position on every issue but I think we probably agree on many goals.  A balanced budget.  An end to abortion.  An end to Obamacare.  The end of illegal immigration.  No erosion of our rights to speech and self protection.  A population that is more self reliant.

Where we disagree is tactics.  I am saddened at my failure to express my ideas so badly that you would believe I want reckless spending and promotion of the parasites of our society.

I don't believe you are stupid because you believe conservatives had the power to stop the SCOTUS upheld ACA law.  I don't think you are evil because you thought some magical grass roots would rise up and force the GOP to sacrifice their careers on a plan with no direction.  I don't believe you must be drunk to suggest principles are what a majority of voters want.  I just think you are wrong.  Not evil.

Lets not insult the motives of each other or this will get boring fast.
