1. More than one of the reasons may be true...

I really don't know, but my feeling about Warren and Sanders is that they had good reasons...

...Democratic Senators from RI voted against the bill: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10024400120#post14

Should President Obama veto the Farm bill?

3. I had to look up Quisling, but then the Quisling Democrats got my vote.

 

Thank you Manny, for making the vast universe of my ignorance just a tad smaller.

At first I thought it was a reference to the Land of Oz, but those are Quadlings, not Quislings. It's too bad they aren't Quadlings (or Munchkins), they might be better Democrats

It's a push-poll, Manny, but it brightened my day, all the same.

Either that, or it something more scary ... they made a (GASP) pragmatic decision.

8. The problem for you, Manny...

 

Is that Warren is accumulating a record now that she's in Congress. Not only did she vote for the bill which cut food stamps, but she also voted for the recent defense bill which authorized over $600 billion for defense.

What you've done is create a fictitious politician that only exists in your mind, but doesn't exist in reality.

The hard truth is that compromise is necessary in order to govern. You're not going to get everything you want and there comes a time when you have to compromise...something you slam Obama for time and time again, but my guess is that you will try to give Warren a pass even though it makes you look hypocritical. I'm sure even you realize that.

it would make polar vortexes seem mild.

Obama won't try that stunt again, after Warren et al handed Obama Larry Summers' flambeed hindquarters on a platter last year.

24. It's funny how ridiculous Manny has become

 

An article written by CNBC (I think) claims Obama wants to appoint Summers as Fed chair. There is no evidence of this and no statement from Obama corroborating this.

Obama appoints Yellen....so that means Warren "handed Obama Larry Summers' flambeed hindquarters on a platter last year."

What a joke.

Warren and sanders would be considered center to center right in most civilized countries. They picked the least worst option available to them due to very rigged electronic voting elections(which happen across the country)


We will be in for a world of hurt when Obama signs the TPP agreement.

27. Price of FOOD is ever increasing, so what do our 'DO NOTHING' elected representatives do?

CUT the SNAP program by $800 Million/Year for the next 10 years. I'll bet every member of the OUT OF TOUCH Congress has a full belly, and then some. We need all of these idiots GONE!!

30. Couldn't agree more. They are a Millionaire/Billionaire Club who have zero relationship to the

people they claim to represent. The more money they can appropriate and put in Private hands, the richer they seem to get.
