    It is a bit odd, but I don't see what everybody's pobrlem is with them. They're just normal collectables. Really, you people need to get over yourself. And I usually don't post such negative comments, so don't take this the wrong way. Please? *smiley face*

    listen to you...at top of the 5 p.m.(EST) hours in re a group of your less fortunate fellow citizens, calling them "props" for in president's case for passage of the tax/unemployment/medicare fees bill...you're as cynical as the reaper party naysayers who have made no secret of their intentions to neglect their constitutionally mandated obligation to "promote the general Welfare" with the singular, simple political objective "defeat obama"...how sad the slide from the fourth estate to infotainment, from headliners to an opening act for a shabby political geek show.

    Even if Boehner gets 100% of his caucus to agree on the bill, trying to pass it using the unanimous consent procedure could be frustrated by a single conservative Democrat in the House who was not in on the Republican Caucus conference call.

    Why does Boehner always insist on House Republicans voting as a single bloc, with zero dissenters? Couldn't he get a House majority to pass legislation he supports by combining the votes of those Republicans who agree with him with the votes of the minority party, i.e., the Democrats? Allowing elected representatives to vote for themselves would demonstrate the bipartisanship the American public has been clamoring for.

    I would like to know what the Republicans are wanting in return for accepting the payroll tax "deal". They want something out of it and I believe the American people should know all the facts.
