For shame because Republicans were actually the anti-war party for the longest time (even during Viet Nam). Since the they've been hijacked by some serious rwnjs. It was officially handed off to the loons in the under the twice-unelected Bush and Cheney.
Look at it this way, with all the cheating the democrats always do, they still didn't win. They tried the usual crap. They tried intimidation, having illegals, felons, and others not eligible to vote vote, had machines that changed republican votes to democrat votes, lies, and the rest, AND THEY STILL DIDN'T WIN. Americans are sick of their crap. All for themselves, liberalism is a disease, the country is immoral and disgusting, and American patriots have had enough. WE WANT OUR COUNTRY…
60 votes were needed to waive the budget rule but 41 of 45 Republicans voted against it, effectively killing the bill. The measure, sponsored by Senate Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), collapsed after failing to garner enough Republican votes to waive the VA spending cap established in a budget deal Congress and President Obama approved in December. Sanders’s office estimated that the VA legislation would have cost $20 billion over 10 years.
Not One Republican VOTED FOR THE VETERANS BILL!! Let's see how they do without the excuse of Obama being wrong/evil/etc. They will have two years before about a third of the Senate and the entire House will stand for reelection.
