1. The blank paper that Eric Cantor held up was used to say they need to start on a new agenda, it wasn't as Grayson said "the new agenda."

2. He claims that republicans have all sorts of silly BS that they have tried to pass, yet he offers nothing as proof that any of that crap was in a bill passed by the House. If he has proof let him show it, otherwise he is just blowing smoke and liberal sycophants buy into. Apparently something you did.

3. Alan Grayson has been found to lie so much that it is unbelievable that he still holds office, which doesn't say much for the voters in his district.

4. When you have proof of anything he said that was accurate please get back to us, K.
It is easy for you to look up as well, Mr Lib. That is if you arent afraid to go onto the congressional website.

Two new votes and done, or not.

The House bills are not getting vetoed. (Veto is the President's prerogative) They are getting ignored. Harry refuses to bring them to a vote.

A true leader would bring the bills to a vote, mark them up, and return them to the House. But that would mean that Senators would then be on record as being for or against something. Can't have that.
you are correct, I just omitted the jargon for expediency and because I was sure he knew the route anyway.

You posted it as fact, now back it up or just say you can't.

There is no way for me to know which bills if any that BS came out of or even if it is in there, it may be some kind of state bill as well, so it is up to you to back up your post with some facts. K?
