      It is? Perhaps in a progressive alternative reality, but not in the real world. Now it as any art is not perfect and you need rational actors not idiots playing politics for it to work as intended. It might be the best thing to happen, now Dems still own it.

      That is true. How many times did gatoravatara (?) say that it was on us now, that the Pubs owned it? Ummmm, maybe not.

        No it is not, senators should not be commenting on bills that have not reached them. Bills should not be argued on TV or other media. More input from the various portions of congress including Dems should have been made, without any voted from Dems no vote should have even been considered. If we make the same mistake of passing things with only one party we will fail.

        If can't reach a consensus no law should be made.

        That means we never get any laws.

        Which with our current divided and mean parties (note plural) would mean almost no new laws.

        Until things change to where parties will agree. When things are good most problems are made into mountains

        But they will never agree, I have exactly the opposite view, you need to treat it exactly as it is a war. And you do whatever is possible to win.
