    The House voted 219 - 206 to pass the bill, a defeat of sorts for Elizabeth Warren as she went up against the last minute arm twisting by Obama and Biden. Obama is looking at the longer picture of getting anything done in 2015, and has been known in the past budgets to sacrifice things sacrosanct to the Democrats to make progress. This looks like another one of those occasions where there were no good options for Democrats...just bad and worse.

    I can appreciate and share in the outrage by liberals, but how many of those that are now scorning the outcome stayed home on election day? The fact of the matter is that the Republicans made major gains in both the House and Senate, not because they had policies that everyone liked, but rather that voter turnout by liberals was exceptionally poor. Elections have consequences and this vote is just one of those consequences.

    Elizabeth Warren by standing up for her beliefs has raised her stature amongst liberals, and if she were to choose to run she would be a formidable force in getting out the liberal base on election day.

    I just watched a powerful speech by Elizabeth Warren on the Senate floor today blasting Citigroup and the power they have over our Executive and Congressional branches of government. Wow I said...I love her. I expect it should be available on YouTube soon if anyone can find it. Everyone should watch it.

    Watch/listen to it and learn.

    "Schmidt" yes! I've said these things more than a year ago; nothing new in that our government is run by lobbyists like Citi, Lockheed Martin, Koch brothers etc.
    She only shows who's connected to Citi, but these same people have other lobby clients as well. The other issue is that the Pentagon on it self is a huge "lobby" machine; everyone bows to it. It is the biggest "company" within the government. Democracy is long gone; everyone is working for the lobby industry or a "patsy" in it. I must say that Warren at least has the guts to mention names; however this is only the top of this huge iceberg.

    I just watched that YouTube video (and a few others). Thanks for the link. Her points not only valid, but also well researched. As an educator, she provides information which is non-debatable. We need an entire congress comprised of people of her caliber. Of course unlikely..... Too bad so few listen.

    I sure do think we need Hillary, in fact we need both of these super-talented women. Just think about it. The Republicans have no one who can actually compete with her, let alone beat her. So let her run and win, making sure that she has Warren as her VP. That will give the Democrats 8 years with Hillary and perhaps another 8 after that with Warren and whomever she chooses as VP. What a perfect situation, and a deserved slap in the face of Romney, Ryan, Paul, Bush, and the rest of those "wanna-bees", who surely weren't much of a challenge to President Obama in 2008 or 2012.

    It is so unfair, that people would gladly back a two-Women ticket, right now, in 2016, ---- just as it appears that many global crisis are coming to a head.
    Also, Bush & Cheney & their comrades are not going to vanish overnight, & go calmly to their rocking chairs. Cheney is already trying to make waves.
    The Hate Speech going on among the "radical" Right, has never been more violent and insane. Although it is very similar to that against JFK in 1963.
    Back then, nobody knew who was behind it all. // NOW, we know that the Koch Bros, (GOP), John Birch Society, & TEA PARTY has been behind it all.
    Different arms of the same old Octopus. They get you to look one direction, while the other tentacles are sneaking up behind you, for another attack.

    I was so amazed to see Cheney on a TV interview; his sadanic head should have been in jail already for a long time.

    I also watched the Meet the Press segment on Dick Cheney's defense of torture. It really was astounding what he said. However, note the way he spoke so authoritatively while dismissing the Senate report as a bunch of crap. This is the kind of stuff that the far right likes...authoritative bullies that do the thinking for you so you don't have to think.

    Elizabeth Warren, by contrast, lays out logical arguments for why the Citigroup amendment to the budget deal is so bad for America, and very few people on the right take notice. After all...she is a liberal. She tries to sway with facts and reasoning. Cheney sways by just being a bully...don't dare question him.

    Indeed, This guy Cheney caused the death of more than 6000 of our soldiers as well hundreds of thousands civilians, but shows no remorse or shame whatsoever. But the American people just act like this is daily routine and the guy is "normal" and would re-elect him if he would run, Sick and dumb indeed.

    Hillary is certainly better than any Republican that could run but I'd have to hold my nose to vote for her! Unfortunately neither Warren or Bernie would have a chance of winning, especially after Obama, so it looks as if she will get it by default.

    I don't know if I agree with you there. Remember 2008? Hillary was anointed the winner of the Democratic nomination before a single primary vote was cast. How did that work out for her?

    I'd also point out that President Obama is still hugely popular among Democrats. His most recent approval rating among Democrats was 86.7%. Why Democrats ran away from him in the 2014 election is baffling to me. I wouldn't always listen to what the media says about his popularity. He is still hugely popular when it comes to Democrats and I can totally envision someone running to Hillary's left and winning just like Obama did in 2008.

    I hope yore correct but the Republicans are a lot more motivated to get out and vote for their beliefs than the Demacrats, unfortunately. I have the feeling the country is moving more to the Right rather than the Left. What happens in two years is anyone's guess.

    No I think Hilary is a disaster; she really has shown what she is all about "money"!! ( $300K for just talking) Furthermore it is gone to her head; the "jesus" syndrome.

    100 percent correct. And since Warren isn't part of the private club (yet) she'll never be president....that is, until she gives in.....and she will eventually....they always do. Now that Obama can't run again look at all the lies exposed... peeled back like an orange. They are all cut from the same fabric
