GOP: We Won!!!!!!!!!!



Ok, they did get Income Verification for Obamacare subsidies - but that was actually already in the bill (they didn't read).

Demoncrats won, U.S. citizens lost. Many of them just don't realize it yet.

Yeah, they didn't read. I'm sure all the Dem lawmakers read it cover to cover.

...from a supporter of the "We gotta pass it to see what's in it" Party.


Hypocrisy much?

I do think there could of should have been some changes on some of those points such as,

Means Testing for Medicare, anyone in the higher income range should be subject to this.
Change Fed Employee Pensions, if these folks are being provided with benefits far in excess of their civilian counterparts.
Tort Reform, make it much harder for those gameing the system ie law suits designed to make lawyers and their plaintiffs rich.
The Tax Code, It's a monstrosity and should be made as simple as possible.

I would hope in this brief interim that by February some of these issues can be resolved or at least be made better. I don't know all the details obviously but the dems need to make concessions also.

Not sure about that. I worked 35 years in the private sector and am now a federal employee. I'll get a pension from both. My private sector pension was 100% non-contribution. I have to pay 0.8% for my federal civilian service to get credit and paid 3% for my military service.

Until recently, I earned a far higher income in the private sector.
