I actually support most of the stuff they demanded as part of their concessions, if it could be divorced from the villainous cast of characters behind it. (the main thing I don't support is increasing their committee representation, which is due to who they are).

I just think that these particular characters are traitorous douchebag morons and are far more likely to do vastly more harm than good, having been given this leverage.

Seriously. I wouldn't mind not having all of these massive 80k page pieces of legislation floating around, or the speaker determining every little fat that happens on the floor. But letting these assholes in on that?

With regard to the House Republicans voting to rescind the recent IRS funding or at some point implementing the Holman rule, those would both require passage in the Senate, right?

Similarly, if House Republicans demand that any increase to the debt ceiling be offset by cuts to Medicare and Social Security, there's no alternative resolution, is there?

We're either going to cut spending for those programs or default on our debt?

Defaulting will be a lot of fun for retirement plan participants. Democrats should have gotten rid of the debt ceiling when they had control or kicked the can WAY down the road. Get ready for some economic brinksmanship that probably at best ends up with another credit rating downgrade. I hope I'm wrong.

These jokers need to have a serious talk with George Santos about his wardrobe choices. This shot is inexcusable

"“Peña is accused of conspiring with, and paying four other men to shoot at the homes of 2 county commissioners and 2 state legislators,” Medina said.

Peña paid four other men to conduct the drive-by shootings at or near the homes of the four lawmakers in December and early January, and investigators believe he was present during at least one of the shootings, Medina said."

He's certainly wildly hypocritical to run as a republican

Pretty certain that was quite true before this showed up

^^^Nope. He's bad because he's into drag AND promotes homophobic and transphobic bullshit. Not hard to comprehend if you make some effort, honestly.

You mean was? That pic is from 2008. I have done many things in the past I regret doing and hate myself for doing them, JUST LIKE ANY HUMAN BEING.

Are there any recent pics of him in drag?

He is a shitty human, period. His pics from 0.15 centuries ago showing him doing things that he deplores now is meaningless. (unless he is still secretly like that)

^I really don't care if there are recent pics of him in drag or if he's still into drag or not. Irrelevant as far as I'm concerned.

I try not to overthink it; he's not worth it. He doesn't deserve the benefit of any doubt at this point.

Isn’t the current Republican Party position that any and all drag is solely for the purpose of grooming young children for sexual exploitation? He should be asked if indeed he used to be into grooming children for sexual exploitation
