The regressives didn't lose? Well, you're right in a way, I suppose. They didn't just lose, they crashed and burned. Those "RINOs" are the only thing keeping the GOP's leaky little boat above water, the only ones who showed any smidgeon of reason.<quoted text>
You think the Republicans lost? Think again.
They now know who all the RINOS's are. McConnell got the $ 3 Billion Kentucky Kickback that will come back to haunt him.
Obama... and now after 4 years of no budget he has to come up with a budget in less than 90 days. Wait till the people see in 90 days his budget has $ 1 Trillion in tax hikes. In 90 days Obamacare will be in total meltdown phase.
Obama asked for a 2 years CR which means a free ride with no budget constrictions. What he got was a 90 day reprive and now has to produce a budget.
So if you think Obama won anything, think again, he basically screwed himself, Reid and Pelosi
McConnell, for once, did what he was supposed to - looked after the citizens of the state that sent him to Congress.
As for the budget and the ACA....we'll see. I have little faith in the Congress to pass any sort of budget without the ridiculous, petty little power struggle they constantly display, but I'm cautiously optimistic. That cautious optimism extends to the ACA as well. It's not a perfect plan, but it's a damned sight better than what we had.
What our President got was the admiration of many for standing his ground and refusing to let punks with Earl Grey for brains hold our nation hostage. If anyone got screwed, it was the GOP by Teddy boy...and he didn't even buy them dinner.
