Operation Rolling Tantrum

Oh, boy. This isn’t going to end, even when or if a deal is reached on defusing the austerity bomb; John Boehner has just declared that he’s going to hold the full faith and credit of the United States hostage every time we hit the debt limit. Nor will it be a case of holding the nation at gunpoint until it meets GOP demands; Republicans are signaling that they don’t intend to make any specific proposals, they’re just going to yell and stamp their feet until Obama soothes them somehow.

So this is going to be nightmarish, unless Obama surrenders — which I don’t think he will (because he shouldn’t).

And one thing to think about: if the next two years are, as they seem likely to be, one long Republican tantrum, the 2014 election is not going to be a normal midterm. It will instead be a referendum on GOP obstructionism, which may attract a lot more attention — and much higher turnout — than normal.

I hope that Republicans do allow the Democrats to drive us off the fiscal cliff.
You state in the interest of fairness that taxes for the rich must go up, but you do not state that those who pay no taxes should also be adjusted so that they contribute as well. This is what fairness is, I know it is alien to you liberals but fairness means everyone. Not just your boogy men
One more time for the slow crowd. The 47% that pay no taxes are those retired over 65 years old, students, deployed military, those in rest homes, long term care hospitals, and those in mental hospitals. Many are those that work full time jobs but at year end receive the Earned Income Tax Credit refund because of their jobs being low paying. You choose. You choose which of the groups are you going to tax. But please don't tax my 86 year old mom. She just gets by on SS.

You & Scott dickhead Brown are quite the pair.

I have no doubt she likely had Native American blood in her ancestry.

To look at someone & say no because they are fair skinned just shows how f*cking stupid you are.

Elizabeth Warren scares the pants of these babies. She's brilliant, hope she runs for President. Scott Brown totally made a fool of himself with that attack on her.
