BTW, there were over 150 Republican amendments in that bill and countless meetings. The bill was up on the net weeks prior to a vote and the process took well over a year. How you can claim anyone rammed anything down your throat is laughable!I watched it unfold and I was furious seeing Obama promise bi partisanship and see him literally shove bills down our throats that were thousands of pages that no one read and just passed them with the promises of hope and change....PLEASE!!! Extended an Olive Branch? Obama burned down trees before extending any branch.
