I would LOVE to be able to afford private school for my kids. That's my goal. I'm homeschooling one with the help of a supplement program through the public school system, so that's extra work, bit so far it seems to be helping him. So that's good :)

 Harry Reid is now making the announcement, and of course ranting about the House being taken over by the Tea Party anarchists.  Then he said, the Republicans are obsessed with embarrassing the president then accused the Republicans of losing their minds.  This man is evil and has very few marbles left.

The House had caved on defunding Obamacare.  Instead, they wanted a one year delay in the individual mandate and stripped the Congress exemption.  These are hardly outrageous conditions.

But as is usual with Obama, if he can't have his way, he throws temper tantrums and he'll take his toys and go home.

Exactly.  The republicans did bend and the delay they were asking for was not unreasonable at all.  It's the dems that wouldn't budge this time.
