    I'd love to have an opinion. Got a copy I can read?

    Last news I heard (admittedly late Friday) was there's vapor-ware and promises for votes, but no hard copy. How do you go to House/Senate conference committee with that.

        And Kep, it's not "whataboutism".

        It's a sad critique about how little responsibility (fiduciary or other) our members of Congress show when bills are passed without being written or read.

        And we minions put up with it.

          It absolutely is whataboutism.

          Whether or not they read the healthcare bill is on them. They had the opportunity to read it, amend it and debate it for months prior to voting on it.

            1. Breathe
            2. Read the statement I'm making

            Passing a bill without reading it does not meet any plausible standard of "fiduciary responsibility".

            3. Think! What I'm saying is ****ing the Rs for even remotely sounding/behaving like Ms. Pelosi's infamous (misquoted) statement.

            You're so horribly partisan blind right now you can't see that I ****ed the Rs for passing a vapor-ware bill.

            4. You may now re-close your eyes and return to "D good, R bad" < grunt-grunt > mindset and postings.

              Answering questions about x by countering with y is the exact definition of "whataboutism." It doesn't matter what the relative merits of x and y are. A person with sound opinions ought to be able to apply them to x without deflection.

                  Sic apparently forgot that following Obama care, the GOP promised all Americans a three day debate period for *all* legislature.

                  It was part of their Pledge to America.

                  They also promised to "pledge to honor families, traditional marriage, life, and the private and faith-based organizations that form the core of our American values."



                  Wait, maybe I'm mistaken. Maybe the GOP is upholding their "traditional marriage" views with Roy Moore oogling fifteen year olds.

                    Last I checked, it was 3 days that it was around.

                    Also, honoring does not make something dogma that should be worshiped. Even in the Bible, where they talk about "Honour thy father and thy mother", the meaning is to remember that you are not exclusively a product of yourself. It doesn't mean worship them, like some of the more controlling ones would make you to believe.

                    Also, funny thing about Roy Moore... 71% of Alabamans believe the accusations (although you wouldn't know they're accusations based on some of the pundits here already believing he's guilty without trial) are falsified. And given what the left did to Trump, I can see why.

                      Released on the 20th, passed on the 2nd, that would be 12 days. We'll say 7-8 were business.

                      BTW, Bloomberg linked it on the 21st. I'd say it was around.

                        And yet, people do it with EULAs all the time. You know how many times I've been pressured to agree to something without reading it?

                          Alex Jones must really be on your case. People think of you as a fool for believing that stuff, but now we now you just don't read it.
