    First of all, temporary waivers and exemptions are not the same thing. You should know that.
    Second, 792 employers (non-unions) applied for waivers and 772 received them. That hardly means Obama was only giving the waivers to unions.

    Gatorbill---you put the blame on Reid for blocking the bill due to one issue

    the same can be stated(quite fairly) that House GOP sabotaged the bill by attempting to add on their attempted sabotage of ACA to the bill

    U.S. Chamber of Commerce sees it that way along with many other business oriented groups that House GOP is the group behaving poorly and unreasonably on this matter.

    --message to U.S. Chamber of Commerce and other groups---if GOP is screwing you, you might do better by aligning yourself with and donating to the Dems.

    old- so when you have 1 issue you negotiate-you meet-you work through it-Reid and your beloved prezBO have no desire or intention of doing so-such great leaders

    neither does the House GOP---takes two to compromise.

    and U.S. Chamber of Commerce disagrees with you by putting the fault on House GOP for this impasse.

    From my view, both sides are "petulant toddlers". Just because your side is winning most battles right now does not lower their jackass level. It is really embarrassing what we send to Washington.

    The false equivalence game. It's how the worst behaviors are excused.
