Barack Obama, our next President

How Republicans Are Duping Members of Their Own Party

It’s grade-school civics that the two parties in Washington represent the views of the people who sent them there, and usually, it’s true, or true enough. But a funny thing is happening on the way to the fiscal cliff, which is that Washington Republicans, according to a very interesting new poll, are not representing the positions of rank-and-file Republicans. So whose views are they representing? Good question. And here’s another good question: Why can’t Washington Republicans recognize how deeply unpopular their positions are and just get down to the business of making a deal that would work and would have broad support in the country? Hmmm.

The poll comes from the McClatchy News Service and was conducted by Marist. It asked respondents what they would and would not support as part of a grand fiscal bargain. The top-line results are typical: People first and foremost want to see taxes go up on the high end.

But here’s the good stuff. Breaking down results to Republican respondents only, their positions are as follows. By 47-37, they oppose letting the current payroll tax cut expire (an Obama position). By 68-26, they’re against cutting Medicare spending. By 61-33, they oppose cutting Medicaid spending (yes, Medicaid spending!). By 66-28, they’re against eliminating the home-mortgage interest deduction. By 72-25, they oppose eliminating the charitable contribution deduction. And by 56-44, less overwhelming but still very much a landslide in political terms, they just say no to raising the Medicare eligibility age.

Please read those numbers over one more time. That’s Republicans. Supporting “liberal” positions by huge margins.

Carol , you watch WAY too much Fox, it's total crap. All their stories are engineered to appeal to ppl like you and it keeps failing. It's like running around the country looking for a KKK meeting and then broadcasting as thou it represents the whole country. That is what Fox does ALL the time and suckers like you keep hearing the message because you don't want to hear the truth.
Remember the Black intimidation guys at the polling booths the previous election. They ran with that 24/7 and it was a total beat up, so yes it bites them on the a$$ every time. They have no more got their finger on the political pulse of the country than your pet cat!

It's quite common for women who stay at home to raise their children or work part-time to supplment their family's income to depend on their husband's employment benefits.

You were warned right off the bat that if you didn't join the union and ever needed legal protection for any reason, you'd be on your own.
Because common sense took a vacation in the school system a long time ago and school administrators stopped growing a spine...and unions took their place.
That "legal protection" argument is a bunch of BS to scare fools.

First thing, lawsuits are brought against the deep pockets, the school district and not the teacher.

Second thing, if you are sued, or worse yet face criminal charges, you want a real attorney, not one dredged up by the union.

Actually, many non-union jobs pay far better than the type of work that is unionized.

And many non-union companies in unionized industries pay union wages to keep the union out.

Good point.

Many men with high-paying professional jobs rely on the medical insurance furnished to their schoolteacher wives. Their employer essentially gets a free ride on the back of the taxpayer.

What a great country.

Even Republicans can be foolish enough to believe in free lunch.
