Between this and gutting the paygo rule we just passed

2018-03-03 02:03:00 UTC  

We seem to be retrograding back, to the previous paradigm

2018-03-03 02:07:24 UTC  

I don't even know what is suggestions and what is actively proposed amendments anymore

2018-03-03 02:07:59 UTC  

or even which amendments are being discussed

2018-03-03 02:08:51 UTC  

What do you mean

2018-03-03 02:09:04 UTC  

Well keep in mind we used to keep track of far more amendments

2018-03-03 02:09:11 UTC  

it is just that people have gotten extremely lazy

2018-03-03 02:09:22 UTC  

Basicalyl the way we kept it organized back then

2018-03-03 02:09:33 UTC  

was if it was actually pending, it would say amendmetn offerred

2018-03-03 02:09:45 UTC  

so many different "amendments" have been proposed that I don't know which version is being discussed at this time

2018-03-03 02:10:05 UTC  

What are you referring to specially, the bill I linked above?

2018-03-03 02:10:09 UTC  


2018-03-03 02:10:18 UTC  

The whole bill is an amendment to the bill you signed

2018-03-03 02:10:39 UTC  

To that bill, there have since been several amendments

2018-03-03 02:10:52 UTC  

pushing to expand the number of required subjects

2018-03-03 02:11:04 UTC  

I'm aware the bill itself is an amendment

2018-03-03 02:11:10 UTC  

but there have been amendments to the amendment

2018-03-03 02:11:25 UTC  

and I don't know which version is being discussed at this time

2018-03-03 02:11:55 UTC  

Basically, Wxtransit, is reposting his amendment to satisfy each new request or point

2018-03-03 02:12:17 UTC  

though I can agree with all that's being added this might as well be a bill to end the bill that was just passed

2018-03-03 02:12:22 UTC  

I would say revised but I am going to treat the final offered text as a new amendment

2018-03-03 02:12:33 UTC  

different from the first one he offered

2018-03-03 02:12:52 UTC  


2018-03-03 02:13:01 UTC  

Because once you load up the requirements, section 3 has to go

2018-03-03 02:13:09 UTC  

since you need the staff back to administer it

2018-03-03 02:14:01 UTC  

I also don't see why computer science is kept separate from "career course"

2018-03-03 02:14:28 UTC  

And knowing this Congress they will likely keep the grants, add back the staff and say who cares when it comes to deficit 😛

2018-03-03 02:23:53 UTC  

remember Yankee: there's nothing wrong with debt

2018-03-03 02:26:04 UTC  


2018-03-03 02:27:04 UTC  

You know the irony here is

2018-03-03 02:27:09 UTC  

our debt was much lower pre-reset

2018-03-03 02:27:18 UTC  

Because taxes were far figher, much earlier

2018-03-03 02:27:24 UTC  

It was about 12 Trillion

2018-03-03 02:27:36 UTC  

But taxes were ridiclous

2018-03-03 02:27:41 UTC  

60% top rate

2018-03-03 02:27:52 UTC  

and that was a moderate position

2018-03-03 02:28:05 UTC  

JCL was called extreme for pushing for 45%

2018-03-03 02:28:30 UTC  

like too low extreme?
