Republicans block debate, hurt democracy

Iraq is the most important issue of our time and the GOPs won't even allow a debate!

Republicans block Senate debate on Iraq

WASHINGTON - Republicans blocked a full-fledged Senate debate over Iraq on Monday, but Democrats vowed they still would find a way to force President Bush to change course in a war that has claimed the lives of more than 3,000 U.S. troops.

The GOPs who used to be enthusiastic fans of the up or down vote are suddenly not so keen on it!

But even worse than their flip-flop on "up or down" votes is their shameless opposition to the a fundamental aspect of democracy: political debate.

The Iraq war is the central political issue of our time and the Senate GOPs have blocked it.

No wonder they have so much hostility to the word "Democratic."
