"Historically, Congress has not always passed good laws. The bad (harmful, discriminatory, unfair) laws have had to be changed when they were discovered to be bad." Ok, loco, how about some examples where the changes were tied to shutting down the government or defaulting on the US Debt? Got those examples handy. What the Republicans are doing is blackmail. It is a politically terrorist act and even if you don't like it, it is what they tried to do. Underhanded and done only for their gain and not the countries. Real patriots, not.

Historically, Congress has not always passed good laws. The bad (harmful, discriminatory, unfair) laws have had to be changed when they were discovered to be bad.

For example, Obamacare is one unpopular law. One reason why is that Pres. Obama is handing out exemptions and delays, in effect changing the law. Does he think it's bad? Or just bad for some businesses/unions/groups? Isn't it bad for individuals who will be FORCED to buy insurance or be fined (TAXED) if they don't?

Naw...it's just "the law of the land"...that some citizens say must be changed.

I'm enjoying the fact that some Republicans are taking their job of representing Joe or Jane Public seriously. It almost appears that Democrats are more interested in supporting the President than looking out for their constituents.

If they "cared," wouldn't they care about this bad law aka ACA and do something about it? Sen. Heitkamp, where are you?

Quotes By RR's Master "I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets." - Barack Obama (Dreams of My Father)

"Political discussions, the kind at Occidental had once seemed so intense and purposeful, came to take on the flavor of the socialist conferences I sometimes attended at Cooper Union" - Barack Obama (Dreams of My Father)

"Well, Charlie, what I’ve said is that I would look at raising the capital gains tax for purposes of fairness." - Barack Obama

No, not because it would increase revenue, but for "fairness". Yes that's right...
