Yea or Nay: Filibuster the Debt Ceiling?

I've seen a lot of posts about doing so recently, so I thought I'd ask.

FWIW I say "Nay". This is just the type of crap the GOP (read Rand Paul) has been doing throughout the Obama administration. It seems like something we don't want hanging around our necks.

Hey Twitler, speaking of uranium, how about Plame?

Hmmmmm? Let's have a big investigation into Karl Rove. I'm sure you'll get Democratic support for that.

Suppose it comes down to a brawl btwn tRump and Ryan

What would happen? Replace Ryan or turn on tRump?

I'm worried about our congress people

now that things have started to really heat up. As I understand it, they have security in DC, not at home.

You never know what one stray tweet is going to lead some nut job to do.

Can We Maybe Send tRump Some Sympathy Cards?

Say we're so sorry that his repeal didn't work out?

Question about intelligence testimony

Would testifying before senate or house intelligence committees somehow indemnify Manafort against FBI charges? Is there some mechanism I'm not aware of that provides shelter?

I guess I just don't understand why he or anyone else would do it unless it saved him somehow.

GOP

Once the proud " Grabbers Of Pussy" party.

Now the "Gone Out to Pasture" party.

What Will the GOP Look Like in 4 or 8 Years?

This question has been on my mind today. Assuming there is a GOP left after this debacle, which way would it move? The nutters have been steadily dragging the party to the right for quite some time now. I don't know how it could get any further right at this point. So what is left for our buddies in the GOP? Does it implode, or does someone take a stand and move it back toward the center?

Trump to GOP critics of health care bill: Im gonna come after you

President Trump went to Capitol Hill on Tuesday morning to sell the House GOP leadership’s plan to overhaul the health-care system as the legislation races toward an expected vote on the House floor by the end of this week. Assuring Republicans they would gain seats if they passed the bill, the president told Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, to stand up and take some advice.

“I’m gonna come after you, but I know I won’t have to, because I know you’ll vote ‘yes,’” said the president, according to several Republican lawmakers who attended the meeting. “Honestly, a loss is not acceptable, folks.

Making threats is what he knows. The congress people's constituents have told them not to do it, but only one voice matters: tRump.

Soros Will Start Funding anti-tRump

WASHINGTON — A network of some of the nation’s wealthiest Democratic donors is weighing providing money and support to several of the new activist groups that have cropped up since Election Day to challenge President Trump and his agenda.

Organizers of January’s Women’s March on Washington and leaders of Indivisible will make presentations later this week to the Democracy Alliance when the influential donor coalition holds its private spring meeting in Washington, the group’s president Gara LaMarche said.

LaMarche said he already has sought to connect alliance contributors to Indivisible, one of the groups at the forefront of anti-Trump efforts. Its organizers, led by former Democratic congressional aides, have created a how-to manual “for resisting the Trump agenda” that is modeled on conservative Tea Party tactics and has encouraged shows of opposition at congressional town hall meetings.

More than 5,500 local groups are using the guide to fight administration policies, organizers say.

“Everybody is impressed by what’s come up in a grassroots sense and doing what we can to support that and connect that up to a larger infrastructure,” LaMarche told USA TODAY.

The alliance, aligned with billionaire financier George Soros, also is weighing building a pool of money that can be deployed for “rapid response” work by other liberal groups on an array of issues, such as challenging the Trump administration on the deportation of undocumented immigrants.
