"More than 10,000 phone calls have flooded his office line the past two weeks, organized by a group looking to kill the deal. Another group has dropped seven figures on TV in New York City to pressure Schumer and other lawmakers to vote against the plan. The powerful American Israel Public Affairs Committee has put its muscle behind an effort to lobby the New Yorker against it."
Only 10,000? Flood his offices with phone calls of SUPPORT for the agreement. http://www.schumer.senate.gov/...
The lack of self awareness among republicans allows them to be as stupid as they want. Well that and the fact that they do not have the capacity to feel shame!
Kudos to Warren.
Massachusetts Democrat Elizabeth Warren went further still, arguing the bill was “just one more piece of a deliberate, methodical orchestrated rightwing attack on women’s rights”.“Do have any idea what year it is?” she demanded of Republicans in the Senate chamber. “Did you fall down and bang your head and wake up and think it was the 1950s?”“This bill is going nowhere,” retorted Patty Murray of Washington state. “Political attacks and threats to shut down the government aren’t going to get in the way of women’s access to the care they need.”

There's a lot to unpack in your last post but I'd rather not sort through it all to nitpick a couple misconceptions or inaccuracies.
You strike me as too eager to swipe away all of President Obama's accomplishments and the steady progress he's achieved.
Until you can show me the perfect progressive president who can: a) magically fix all of our problems instantly, and b) agree with you on every single issue, then I'll have to be content with steady progress and occasional disappointment.
I continue to believe that what we need the most is to have fewer Republicans in our government.
Because even the very 'best' president is constrained without strong support from congress, and this crop of Republicans we have in power is extremely irrational, deliberately incompetent and destructive to even the very basic functioning of our government, let alone progress.
