This is the way it will/should be done...
Democrats will NOT renegotiate an extension to Bush's tax cuts and will let them expire for everyone. Then Democrats in Congress will introduce a bill (Feb-Jun 2012) to cut taxes for 98% of Americans and watch Boehner squirm in public trying to defeat the bill because it doesn't include the top 2% income earners.
And if no bill is introduced by June it will be on the dems shoulders..

Reid Floor Speech on Use of Filibuster

Remarks as prepared for delivery:
Mr. President, yesterday morning I spoke here about a statement the Majority Leader issued calling the filibuster a “procedural gimmick.”

The Websters dictionary defines “gimmick” as --“an ingenious new scheme or angle.” No Mr. President, the filibuster is not a scheme. And it is not new.

The filibuster is far from a “procedural gimmick.” It is part of the fabric of this institution. It was well known in colonial legislatures, and it is an integral part of our country’s 217 years of history.

The first filibuster in the U.S. Congress happened in 1790. It was used by lawmakers from Virginia and South Carolina who were trying to prevent Philadelphia from hosting the first Congress.

Since 1790, the filibuster has been employed hundreds and hundreds of times.

Senators have used it to stand up to popular presidents. To block legislation. And yes – even to stall executive nominees.

The roots of the filibuster can be found in the Constitution and in the Senate rules.

In establishing each House of Congress, Article I Section 5 of the Constitution states that “Each House may determine the rules.”

...

For 200 years, we’ve had the right to extended debate. It’s not some “procedural gimmick.”

It’s within the vision of the Founding Fathers of our country. They established a government so that no one person – and no single party – could have total control.

Some in this Chamber want to throw out 217 years of Senate history in the quest for absolute power.

They want to do away with Mr. Smith coming to Washington.

They want to do away with the filibuster.

They think they are wiser than our Founding Fathers.

I doubt that’s true.

If I post a video on YouTube presenting "evidence" that you have sex with sheep, would that make it true?
Anyone can post any doctored crap they want. Try quoting real sources for your coo coo conspiracy theories.
If you want to go with YouTube though, let’s look at some with Mitt Romney, in his own words. This one exposes him as a hypocrite who says one thing at one time, and later contradicts himself at another. He is clearing saying one thing as governor of Mass. and another altogether to get peoples votes later.

Or maybe this one where he is confronted about believing that the world after the second coming of Christ will ruled jointly from Israel AND "Missouri?!?!"

Waa waa waa- obamabot- obama's own grandmother says he was born in kenya, He HIMSELF said he wasn't qualified to be president. You're pitiful. Don't forget to change your screen name when the dust settles...provided the US still has electricity for the internet.

President Obama is neither “Kenyan” nor "Muslim." Last time I checked it was a matter of public record that he was born in America, and has attended a Christian church all of his adult life.
Last time anyone not an obamabot checked, those paticular "facts" wouldn't stand a hard look. Try again, obamabot. He even turned down $5 million from The Donald for a copy of his college transcripts.

The War at Home, Frances Fox Piven, p45

Over ten years, an estimated $12 to $14 trillion will be lost,[due to Bush's tax cuts for the wealthy] more than enough to pay for the Social Security and Medicare shortfalls combined... The anticipated fiscal storm has led even the International Monetary Fund to worry about the long-run fiscal stability of the United States. The storm could well suck up the money that might otherwise be spent on our major social programs.

DID TAMPA SOCIALITE MISLEAD PETRAEUS, PENTAGON?
Her claims of 'mediation' rejected by Quran-burning pastor

Jones said Kelley did not act as a mediator.

The honorary title came up in a 911 call released to the media. During that recorded conversation with police, Kelley complained about trespassers on her property and told the operator that since she was an honorary consul, she was subject to “inviolability.”

Kelley reportedly lost her honorary title this month after reports surfaced that she may have used the position for personal gain.

Everyone knows that any civilized debate ends on page one. It might stay together into page two but never makes it to page three before going to he!!. You jumped in after this thread already had over 55,000 posts and more than 2500 pages. You cannot deceive anyone. You wanted to argue. You begged for it.

I could go on and on but the moderators need a break so I'll cut it off here and spare them the torture.

My reply.

Good morning, RE-ply W-ith B-ack A-tcha.
I agree with your first sentence.
Your second sentence is none of my business because that is between you and her/him.
Your third sentence as well as your fourth sentence:
"Everyone knows that any civilized debate ends on page one. It might stay together into page two but never makes it to page three before going to he!!."
Leads me to a very interesting conclusion.
If I know that "any civilized debate" ends on "page one" and you say "Everyone knows that any civilized debate ends on page one. It might stay together into page two but never makes it to page three before going to he!!."
Then by all measures and standards and by then judging from the amounts of positive judgits based on the first (me making the first) and second comments on just the first two pages of this thread before "going to he!!"..........

Then I won this "civilized" debate"

The President has failed us......
He continues to do so.

Checkmate Rewba!
LMAO!
But laughing with you too.
Now back to the bitchin....He's FAILING!

You're right, we do have google.
Wait till you see what's next.
We ain't gonna make it though. <smirk> Haha.

No, what's fun is the fact that we'll have Obama to deal with it. The debt itself, as you point out, will affect all of us - that part will not be fun. Just ask any Argentine or Greek that you know.

Reality has a way of uniting people, even if they're all just huddled together crying, wondering where their money went and wishing they had elected a real leader instead of a huckster politician. I'll be crying right along with them.

I might go into the wheelbarrow business. You'll need those to carry your cash to the grocery store. I remember the photo of the pre-war German lady burning their worthless paper money to keep warm. Do dollars burn easily? We may get to find out!

That just say Rosie didn't pay in as much as I did or her wait time was less.. As I posted this morning to Ralff I waited for close to two years for a hearing and calling the lawyer from the CCU.. I am now wondering about that backlog and if its not intentional??
Eagle
Gross willful neglect at a minimum but in all likelihood it is the intent of the design of the system to cause the backlog.

I explained earlier how it is to SS's advantage to delay and let some of them give up or die off before getting a cent and by stonewalling until you have to hire a lawyer who will make more money by stalling longer.
