WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Howls of protest filled the halls of the U.S. Senate today as dozens of Senators expressed their outrage at having to work through the weekend to save the United States from financial Armageddon.
“We’re hearing a lot about the country plunging back into recession and millions of people being thrown out of work,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky).“What we’re not hearing much about is how our Sunday is being completely and irrevocably ruined.”
Senator McConnell said that when President Obama called the Senate back to work on a budget deal this weekend,“At first I thought he was kidding. Not only have I never worked on a weekend, I’ve never met anyone who’s done such a damn fool thing.”

The only reason that sorry lot called "the house of representatives," and "that dazed looking Mofo Boehner," will not work with President Obama is because they hate the fact that the brother is in charge. Anyone deny it is a delusional, lying S.O.B.itch. We ALL know it. That old racist propaganda about whites being somehow more important (as if God had nothing better to do)need to be buried so the worlds people can advance to levels of civilizations practiced long before you space cadets fell from hell, contaminating the purity of God's "chosen" people. You are so self absorbed in your physical being that you have grown even more pathetic than you were in days of old. The "mirror" is NOT your friend! If you are hearing one tell you that "you are the fairest of them all" You are in never never land! You break faster, wrinkle faster, die faster and have more deformities and crack faster than all other races of man on the planet and yet...It is always YOU who want to judge and defame others. The time is at hand, and soon we will revise the constitution written by YOUR forefathers. We will change the words and take power away from those who fail to perform (like todays' Congress and Republicans.) We will make it a crime punishable by death to insult the "elected" commander in chief as it is in other "civilized" countries. Many of you here today would have your heads on the chopping block. You are not worthy of "freedom of speech" because you have nothing to say except for useless bytching and moaning with nary a solution. I am looking forward to the day when this happens because it is YOU bytchers and Moaners who should be filling prisons and not black men. It is YOU who are terrorist, shooting up your fellow citizens because you are a bunch of egotistical, self absorbing, delusional, crazy azzes that need to be in solitary confinement or in straight jackets.

and another right wing fable goes down the drain...

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was admitted to a New York hospital Sunday after the discovery of a blood clot stemming from the concussion she sustained earlier this month.

Clinton's doctors discovered the clot Sunday while performing a follow-up exam, her spokesman, Philippe Reines, said. He would not elaborate on the location of the clot but said Clinton is being treated with anti-coagulants and would remain at New York-Presbyterian Hospital for at least the next 48 hours so doctors can monitor the medication.

that's also probably faked. i'll check the wingnut sites tomorrow to get the 'real' story.

There could be a silver lining, as others have also said, in going over this cliff.
I hope you - and they - are right.
Carol, the fiscal cliff seems to be the only act of Congress that cut government spending. The Democrats have only one plan, to increase the size of government until the government dominates everything. If they create a catastrophe in doing so, that will give them justification for using the government to take control of everything.
Boehner won't do anything but give the Democrats everything they want. That's why Nancy Pelosi asked Boehner to arrance the selection of Speaker in November, and not as it should be done on the first day of the next Congressional session. Boehner ordered the 112th Congress to select the Speaker for the 113th Congress.
We have to let the fiscal cliff happen. If we don't, then there's absolutely no reason to believe the insanity we saw the past 4 years, to include 2 years with a Republican House, will end.
There's no way to pay for the government the Democrats are creating. It's an impossibility. There's just not enough earnings to be taxed.
The fiscal cliff cuts government spending. The fiscal cliff raises taxes. We need both to happen.

And, we also need to increase the number of people paying taxes. 47 percent getting a free ride just don't sound right.
Now, don't allow any more debt. We can't afford any more debt. Every dollar we borrow brings us closer to the inevitable collapse perpetual borrowing causes.

Some lawmakers, pundits, and others continue to say that President George W. Bush’s policies did not drive the projected federal deficits of the coming decade — that, instead, it was the policies of President Obama and Congress in 2009 and 2010. But, the fact remains: the economic downturn, President Bush’s tax cuts and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq explain most of the deficit over the next ten years — according to this update of our analysis, which is based on the Congressional Budget Office’s most recent ten-year budget projections (from August) and congressional action since we released the previous version of this analysis in May 2011.

The deficit for fiscal year 2009 — which began more than three months before President Obama’s inauguration — was $1.4 trillion and, at 10 percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), the largest deficit relative to the economy since the end of World War II. At $1.3 trillion and nearly 9 percent of GDP, the deficits in 2010 and 2011 were only slightly lower. If current policies remain in place, deficits will likely exceed $1 trillion in 2012 and 2013 before subsiding slightly, and never fall below $700 billion for the remainder of this decade.

The events and policies that pushed deficits to these high levels in the near term were, for the most part, not of President Obama’s making. If not for the Bush tax cuts, the deficit-financed wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the effects of the worst recession since the Great Depression (including the cost of policymakers’ actions to combat it), we would not be facing these huge deficits in the near term. By themselves, in fact, the Bush tax cuts and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will account for almost half of the $18 trillion in debt that, under current policies, the nation will owe by 2019.[1] The stimulus measures and financial rescues will account for less than 10 percent of the debt at that time.

President Obama, however, still has a responsibility to propose, and put the weight of his office behind, policies that will address our key long-term fiscal challenge — preventing the significant rise in debt as a percentage of GDP that will occur under current policies. Allowing the flagship Bush tax cuts — which initially were slated to end after 2010 and were extended for two years — to expire on schedule at the end of 2012 would halt the rise in the debt-to-GDP ratio. In fact, that step — or an equivalent, substitute package of deficit reductions — would reduce the debt-to-GDP ratio and stabilize it at about 70 percent in the second half of the decade. Of course, with the economy still fragile, it is prudent to continue the middle-class portion of the tax cuts for a while longer. But there is no justification for extending the entire set of expiring tax cuts indefinitely. To keep the debt stable over the longer run, when the fiscal impacts of an aging population and rising health care costs will continue to mount, policymakers will need to take large additional steps on both the expenditure and revenue sides of the budget.

Having said that, policymakers should not mistake the causes of the swollen deficits that we face in the decade ahead nor make policy based on mistaken impressions.

Get over yourself.
In case you haven't figured it out, dumbass, Boehner is a Democrat.

What needs to happen is government spending gets cut. The fiscal cliff does that. And, taxes need to increase. The fiscal cliff does that.
What fucking problem do you idiots have with that?

Now, all we need to do is increase the number of people paying taxes. 47 percent of the population mooching off the other half won't survive, no matter what kind of government or economy you have.
You moochers are going to have to get some patriotism going and get a job, and start paying your fair share of what the government costs.
... you really didn't prepare yourself to get a real job, did you?
Well, go get fitted for a leaf blower, or learn to wash dishes. There just isn't any money left to carry your lazy ass anymore. You're going to have to do like eveyone already paying for everything you have - get a fucking job and pay your fair share of taxes.

You are an ignorant dupe.
I know you and Obama have never read the Constitution, so you really don't understand how government works here. I'll give you an education.
Congress is the sole authority on revenue and spending.
If you bother to look at the real-world data, you will find the insane spending beginning in January, 2007. Coincidentally, the Democrats took control of all the purse strings of government in January, 2007.
If you need to see actual figures, here's the only reference you need:
http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/
All you have to do now is learn something about American history and what happened when, for instance, in January, 2007, the Democrats took control of all the purse strings of the government when the annual deficit was 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollars, and the total debt had increased from 5 to 8 trillion dollars between the years 2001 and 2007.
I've crammed the facts up your ass so many times, it's a wonder there was room for these facts.
