Congress offered solution after potential solution, it's the president who says he's unwilling to negotiate. Always nice to hear from eighth graders, though. It's a refreshing intellectual uptick from liberal thinkers.

8th graders do not care about politics or government. Whomever put these kids up to this is a sad excuse of a hack journalist.


...oh wait....HuffPo. We already knew this was hack journalism.

Sadly, kids, being vulnerable and trusting, are susceptible to mind control by political extremists.

Obama is obviously the uncompromising problem in the matter, as I've posted in thorough detail elsewhere here.

By the way, "Congress" includes both houses, the Senate and the House of Reps. Currently it's Obama and the Senate (the liberal Dems in control) vs. the House (the conservative Repubs in control). Whoever is phrasing the "battle" as the President v. Congress is clearly misphrasing it.

What is sad is that anybody published what an 8th grader said.

We will start listening to that person about 10 years after they stop gauging their lives by what grade they are in.

The 8th grader has more common sense and a higher IQ than the low-info voters who voted for these TEAt congressguns.
