Are they really gonna pass this thing? I cannot work today I am so freaked out. Were the Republicans so busy that they couldn't do something in this area that seems so simple that could have avoided this catastrophe? I am just so stunned. How can they avoid poll after poll? What has happened to the word "serve" in the title "Public Servant?" Tell me ain't sooo...LR? I don't even feel American today...knowing this is about to happen. This is what happens when there is no leadership in power that can remind the masses about common sense. What a dark day.
