The Republicans are holding everything hostage until they get their precious tax cuts for the rich: not just don't-ask-don't-tell, which of course you'd expect of them, but now relief funds for sick 9/11 workers.  And everything else.  Everything -- those babies!  Folks, this is what they do.  This is how they think.  This is who they are.  And this is what Americans voted for?  There's only one word for Republican voters: Stupidi-Tea.
