The Democrats caved?
Perhaps you should see who sponsored the bill and what it contains.
Here's a hint: Senator Carl Levin

I can appreciate your point of view. It was similar when Obama pushed to pass Romney care. It was a republican program, created by the Heritage foundation to transfer the wealth of the middle class to a few rich insurance company CEOs, and here was Obama sponsoring, pushing, even lending his name to support it.

Goes to show both parties are corporate owned and will cater to the rich. We need a serious third party; or make lobbying and corporate campaign donations illegal.

I am a democrat but the ultra left is a disaster and if it walks like a duck and quacks it is a duck.

A "transgender" is playig basketball on a womans team and no one thinks this is unfair and absurd.

"Gabrielle Ludwig, Transgender Basketball Player, Makes Championship Game Debut"

A transgender California woman is garnering national attention after making her debut on a junior college basketball team.

The Contra Costa Times is just one of a number of publications to feature the story of 50-year-old Gabrielle Ludwig, who participated in the 19th annual Comet Classic tournament championship on Dec. 1.

Ludwig, who is twice divorced and has three children, last played college basketball in 1980, more than 20 years before she transitioned, USA Today points out. Though Ludwig is decades older than some of her teammates (and, at 6ft 8in, substantially taller), coach Corey Cafferata nonetheless praised her to the Times as possibly going on to become "the most dangerous player in the state."

You have been taking it up that sweet NJ Cuban butt of yours from the Castro brothers for 54 yrs and still want more.

You are waiting for the USA military to liberate your corrupt island so that you can replace the corrupt Castro's with corrupt Miami politicians.

Egypt will have an ethical gvmt before Cuban run Miami ever does.

Why is this "U.S. Senate unanimously passes defense spending bill" in the Cuba forum?

"Inbred" you have no class, no integrity, no ethics but as a Cuban I have even less and that is why I like you.

Atleast you have balls .

"The real cowards were the people who ran from the good fight with Fidel Castro. The real Cuban patriots...either died fighting Castro or still are in Cuba fighting for freedom,” and he said,“The motto during our American Revolution was,‘Give me liberty or give me death.’ To too many Cubans,” he added,“the motto was ‘Give me liberty or give me Miami.’”
