Why can't this moron see the light of rationality and common sense in one step? Why is he putting the nation through a series of his churlishness in a stepped way? Does he think it will reduce the impact on his tax-conservative base like the Norquists of the world and help preserve his 'dignity' somehow?

Get over with it already, just come out and acknowledge that the Senate bill is a rational and sensible measure to fix the budget crisis, the only one one the table, and it already represents a good middle ground between both sides of the aisle. Don't put the nation in a strangle hold just for ideological reasons, and make way for passing the bill in front of you already.
Okay we get it. Now I demand budget cuts.
