Response to Fred Sanders (Reply #1)

Fri Oct 30, 2015, 11:30 AM

3. Conservatives ineffectually argued against passage.

It was a complete rout in both Houses!

Ted Cruz cried and whined for around 90 minutes.

After the cloture vote (60) to move to final consideration of bill, each senator was allowed up to one hour to speak.

Rand Paul took his hour - at 2 AM - blathering meaninglessly (last gasp?) - and then the 99 other senators said "Eff you, let's vote!" and shortly after 3 AM it was done.

When will Republicans realize how incompetent and useless these senators are? All of their speeches are about their personal failure to have any impact on legislation!

Or their one claim to infamy - credit default and downgrade of USA rating, government shutdown which directly hurt Americans, and sequestration which hurts over and over!

No wonder Republicans who came to do their job reject the war on the American people!
