    The legislation is still being written, so there's no way of knowing what it is that they're changing to put it back on the floor, other than they might make it a bit more 'lenient'. So far, only 2 senators are working on it, but that's about 2% of the Senate, and others could join in.

    Two senators = The Senate.

    Whatever, everyone knows The Senate is full of shitlords anyway. I mean, CISPA? Really? What about TRANS*PA, you bigots.

    Well they won't screw me over: I'm an American citizen. I don't have to put up with their behaviour towards me. I can ignore it. :)

    Instead of working out a permanent budget solution for the year of 2014 (remember our current budget solution only last till 01/15), congressmen waste time on something so insignificant and non beneficial.

    To add my own opinion: Obama said he would veto the law anyway, so, yeah.

    Oh you mean like all the time? Nothing they've done has ever helped the financial situation. Democrats and Republicans on both sides are being idiots.


    Man the government is full of trolling douchebags who want what's best for them and not the citizens.

    We Americans do share some blame, it is us who keep re-elect these douchebags term after term.

    Throwing milk at the bitches!
    "Man, I wish the government would stop trying to OPPRESS EVERYONE and MAKE THE ECONOMY BETTER."

    Because Two senators rewriting a bill is burning so much man-power and effort.

    Its like when people expect presidents to lower gas prices...

    Why do you think I spend every waking moment on the internet telling government officials to sod off in one form or another?
