    Just amazing. The republicans have now become so contentious that individuals are arguing with themselves. icon_lol.gif Yes I know he tried to pull a stunt, but it backfired.

    Mitch McConnell filibustered his own bill. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Still trying to tell us that the Republicans aren't to blame for holding things up in Washington?

    Talk about a huge waste of taxpayer money.

    Oh no. This is what some republicans call a "productive" American who deserves the taxpayers money.

    And it seems that Mitch has already started writing her campaign ads for her.

    Actually, both political parties are equally responsible for the inaction in Washington. Both democrats and republicans act like a bunch of little kids. The sad thing is that taxpayers time and money are being wasted away with no end in sight.

    I agree that there is blame to go around, however I don't believe it is "equal". The republicans have gone out of their way to stop progress.

    Even Ann Coulter thinks they need to move on from this ridiculous crusade to end the Bush tax cuts.

    The real point is, that the republicans keep trying to cut spending in order to reduce waste when their own people are a huge part of the problem. We are spending money for them to get things done in a timely fashion, this filibuster nonsense is a huge waste.

    I also don't believe all republicans are part of the problem, but the current leadership is a huge part of the problem.

    I think it is all the lobbyists from the military/industrial complex that are a major root cause of these problems. Any deep cuts to wasteful, excessive defense spending will be a threat to their profitability.

    While healthy discussions on how to reduce waste are needed, we also need to address clear examples of waste such as this.

    I know you want to make sure we are taking a fair and balanced approach, but let's stop giving people a pass for stupidity.
