    Well it's nice to see common sense enter the mind of the speaker of the house, but it took sooooooo long ! It's going to take a long time to temper down the hate machine forged by the Koch Brothers. I always like to point out who the actual enemies and financiers of plots against our USA are. I do have advise for the Koch Brothers and their so called Tea Party followers... and that is simply : This is the US of A and we have elections here, elections are how we govern. If you don't like it, please by all means leave it. There has to be some country somewhere where they'll take you or at least some rock to crawl under. Congrads Speaker looks like you may have at last, found a set.
