FR won't let me post the link to Military Times, but the story is there ...
When the president considered sitting down with the four congressional leaders in the White House ahead of the deadline to avert a government shutdown, Reid privately urged Obama to call off the meeting, according to several people familiar with the situation. Reid believed that it would amount to nothing more than a photo-op that would give the false impression that a serious negotiation was occurring, even warning he wouldnt attend such a session. Obama scrapped it.
As Washington barrels forward to the first government shutdown in 17 years on Tuesday, the wily Reid has taken the lead role in pushing a hardball Democratic legislative strategy that can be summed up like this: Make the Republicans cave.
The death panels arent going to come through the front door. Theyre going to sneak up on you from behind with piano wire.
democrats in the house and senate were mostly the same as they are today, with a few more exceptions. Read “The Roosevelt Myth” and you’ll see that today is much like history repeating itself, with the house and senate mostly doing everything it could to support Roosevelt’s socialist agenda.
No military pay then no welfare pay and no congressional/executive/legislative branch pay either.
..this s*** comes right from the top..........
Campaigns to vote these slithering Elitists out in 2014 start now, ya think?
I believe that the Senate passed the bill this afternoon and sent it on to the President for signature.
Only because, politically, they HAD NO CHOICE.
