McCain issues whining: ‘”There will be no cooperation for the rest of the year’

“There will be no cooperation for the rest of the year. They have poisoned the well in what they’ve done and how they’ve done it.”

– U.S. Sen. John McCain. R-AZ

So having lost, Johnny and his angry friends are going to take their ball and go home. Petulance will take precedence over the best interests of the country. The Party of No is announcing its intention to become the Party of Hell No. With a heavy and quite important agenda yet ahead — financial regulation, immigration, long-term solutions to our budget problems, the economy — “there will be no cooperation for the rest of the year.”

Well, let’s see how that sits with the American people who pay their salary.

As I predicted, it won’t end here, either. The filibuster is dead forever, all due to the arrogance of Democrat leaders who will insist on using reconciliation for virtually everything in the changes bill.

When you do something that 75% of Americans don’t want, and override the rules of the Senate as they are about to do in order to accomplish that feat, you have poisoned the well.

And it can’t ever be un-poisoned.

Correct me where I’m wrong. Now didn’t the house just pass the Senate bill that passed with a super majority and that will become law? The changes bill the house passed now goes to the addresss some of the bad items in the Senate bill. If they (GOP) don’t want to clean up the new law, would they not be cutting their nose to spite their face? Seems childish.

Jefferson, the Changes Bill largely cleans up issues that the (liberal) House has with the more moderate Senate bill.

How many of those changes do you thing Republicans are going to be for anyway?

The Cornhusker Kickback, for instance, isn’t eliminated in the changes bill; it is EXPANDED. Which costs more money we don’t have.

Can’t be done. It takes a more votes to change the Senate rules than the Dems have.

So they’d like you to believe. In truth, a simple majority can do it, if Reid really wanted it done.

The GOP were threatening this back during the SCOTUS appointment difficulties and we were hearing murmurs of the “nuclear option”; they claimed it would just take 50 votes plus Cheney if it came to it. I’ve ever reason to believe they might well have gone there if the Dems hadn’t caved.

Generally, however, the Senate folks who’ve brought up this possibility of late say it would likely be a rules change for a new session of Congress, not the current one; and I’ve heard it said that maybe they’d just lower the number needed for cloture from the current 3/5 to something closer to half, rather than a literal simple majority.

Doggone, when you can rule that reconciliation is proper for just about anything (as it is about to be used), even when it clearly violates the rules of reconciliation, then the filibuster becomes meaningless.

And if you don’t think that when the GOP gets control of the Senate in 2013 they won’t use reconciliation to reverse the parts of this bill that they don’t like (even if it isn’t proper to do so), think again.

In order to be able to make a change to the Senate rules with a simple majority, the Senate would first have to make a change under the existing rules…which requires a 2/3 majority.

“A formal change to the Senate’s rules is even more difficult to make: Senate rule 22 says that such a change requires a two-thirds majority of those present and voting to end debate (67 votes if all senators vote).[8]”

Newt Gingrich, as quoted in today’s Krugman column in the New York Times: If Democrats pass health reform, “They will have destroyed their party much as Lyndon Johnson shattered the Democratic Party for 40 years” by passing civil rights legislation.”

Isn’t that scary? It isn’t really about what is right, it is about power. Doesn’t even matter if you don’t like health care. What is important is that they had the courage to do what they thought was right, to fulfill a major platform that garnered them the Presidency, House, and Senate. Do you think they don’t know they will pay a terrible price?

It is that attitude that caused the Thugs to lose the House and Senate in this decade. They deregulated, failed to enforce regulations, declared war where it was not justified and cut taxes at the same time. They wrecked the economy, destroyed the housing market, cost millions their jobs, thousands of American soldiers lost their lives, and they didn’t address the growing problems a health care system run amok.

So, we will go another round of vote the Dems out and vote the Thugs in. Wait a few years, things get bad again and we will vote the Dems back in.

Mick, and you have now proved my point perfectly. Thank you.

What stopped Clinton from being convicted of impeachment? The cooling system of the U.S. Senate. That system is being destroyed by the reconciliation process in fixing a bill that never should have passed the filibuster. And when you do it with 75% of Americans against it, knowing that the House wouldn’t have passed the ORIGINAL Senate bill if they knew they couldn’t get the Changes Bill passed through reconciliation, you have a recipe for legislative disaster.

The House would have never passed the original Senate bill without knowing that their concerns were not already handled in the Senate without an improper use of reconciliation.

Poll: Majority oppose health bill, still trust Dems and Obama
By Eric Zimmermann – 03/22/10 12:29 PM ET

A majority of Americans oppose the health bill passed by Congress but still trust Democrats and President Obama more than Republicans when it comes to healthcare reform, a new CNN poll finds.

Fifty-nine percent of respondents say they oppose the bill passed by Congress. (The poll was conducted before last night’s passage). Thirty-nine percent favor the bill.

It should be noted, however, that of the 59% who oppose the bill, 13% do so because it’s “not liberal enough.” So a majority of respondents (52%) either support the bill or want Democrats to do more.

President Obama still holds an advantage over Republicans. Just about half of respondents–51%–say they trust the president on healthcare, compared to 39% who say the same of the GOP. Congressional Democrats also lead Republicans on the issue, by a margin of 45% to 29%.

Dusty:

Actually, the form of government since we’ve had since 1789 (don’t forget the old
Articles of Confederation).

That said …………. countries evolve ……… either towards more freedom or away from it.

We have done both in our over 200 year history ……… we once moved toward more freedom but now we are moving away.

Sad to see but we are regulating ourselves back into a form of slavery.

Franken needs to remind McCain, again, of the facts regarding poor behavior. In fact, I think McCain needs a Dear John letter from the Senate. He’s most certainly displaying signs of “losing it”. That’s the PC way of saying he’s over the hill, by the way. Put him out to pasture with the rest of the GOP. They can always get gigs doing happy cow commercials if they get bored.

“I’m not sure that will sell with the people that matter (independents).”

As one of those swing votes, both sides need to do a lot of convincing that 14 trillion is the number they are worried about to gain my vote – didn’t see it under Bush, and definitely don’t see it right now. Shall be interesting come Nov.

“Look, then. I’m not your librarian”

Translation: I can’t back up my assertion with proof

I apologize, I feel I missed the thrust of that post.
