WASHINGTON – Sometimes in politics and legislation, whether you win is less important than how you win.
That's the dilemma facing House Speaker John Boehner as he tries to round up the votes to pass a fast-approaching spending compromise and avert a partial government shutdown by week's end.
Boehner, R-Ohio, wants the overwhelming majority of those votes to come from his fellow Republicans, even if dozens of easily attainable Democratic votes could help carry the budget bill to victory.
Why not? The republicans have been treating the dems like their little petit bitches for decades now and the dems seem to be totally ineffective against it. Whether the dems are in the majority or the minority, the repubs get their way and bitch slap these spineless little dip shits on a regular basis. It doesn't really matter what the people vote are what the polls say they want. The repubs will exercise their will all over the dems. with impunity.
WTF is wrong with the democrats? Soon the American people will realize there is no point in voting and the corporations will truly own this country lock, stock and barrel.
