Let's say Romney won the last election, but the House and Senate remained as they are now.

How would you feel about the Senate refusing to fund the government or pay the national debt until Romney agreed to raise marginal tax rates and reduce deductions and exemptions for everyone above the median?

I probably wouldnt like it, But like I said the democrats started this - they used reconciliation the so called Nuclear Option to force Obamacare on the republicans

so tell me - if it was okay with you for the left to use the "nuclear Option" on the republicans why is it not okay for the right to use it right back when they have the chance.

The Democrats had the votes - both houses of Congress, a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, and the White House. You really can't see the difference between having the votes, and not having the votes? How dishonest can you get?

and now the republicans have the power and votes to do what they are doing

They are doing nothing.  They are not voting.  They are trying to make up for the fact that they don't have votes in the Senate or one of their own in the White House by attempting to use extortion to get their own agenda through.  They are trying to set a very dangerous precedent - one that could come back to haunt them.

The fact that they are using the budget to harm millions of people, and that this is not even a budgetary issue just totally escapes you, doesn't it.
