Answer the question. The man you voted for just signed a defense bill are you unhappy with him? Also how come its not extortion when dems say our way or we go over the cliff? But if repubs say give in some to us or we go over the cliff it is extortion? Is there one set of rules for the politicians you agree with and another for conservatives?
