    The issue is not the Senate, which still has a 53-47 majority, but passing the Senate version in the House, again, that's a horse of a different breed as REPUBLICANS will control the House in January 2011 and JOHN BOEHNER of all people will become Speaker

      I'm not sure I see the problem you're alluding to.  The House had a problem with the Senate including appropriations, which is the domain of the House.  Seems like cooperation on this one.

        ON THIS ONE. They won't cooperate on much else IF ANYTHING. And when JOHN BOEHNER becomes House Speaker, won't that be interesting?

          Well, first of all, we must define who we want to cooperate.  I'm very opposed to add-ons in any bill.  I believe every bill should be sent through as a single proposal that way no one can use add-ons as bargaining chips for votes.

          What's up with Boehner?  Don't know much about him.

            I agree that add-ons in any bill should be outlawed. So many proposals that the people are opposed to slip through as add-ons.
