I'm not going to guess at your job or how much you make or bring home, but I will say your the one mad that The President was reelected. So mad that all I see in your posts are blatant lies. If all the non conservatives on here jobs are so crappy, why are you the one mad? All you conservatives do is whine. So much that I'm drunk off your thoughts & it takes alot of wine to get a person drunk! Ya'll representatives are so stupid in going against the will of the people & driving us off the fiscal cliff. I agree it was just what Barack wanted so once they cut bush tax cuts & the president re implements them they will be known as the Obama tax cuts. Kinda smart you gotta admit!

As long as you keep repeating that...
We never had a surplus under Clinton. Clinton got lucky with the dot.com bubble. It then burst. The Republican Congress led the way to a more balanced budget. The unraveling of the housing mortgage loan crisis began under Clinton. We were hit by 9/11 under Bush disrupting the economy. Democrats also supported the war effort. Democrats ignored the warnings by Bush and Bernacke of an impending housing market crisis as much, if not more, than Republicans.
...I'm going to keep repeating this.
Your oversimplified version is much too understated and consistently inaccurate.
For the umpteenth time, Bush was promoting home ownership.

When will you quit lying about this?

The only thing Bush did was try a power grab to put Fannie & Freddie under White House control to satisfy his banking buddies.

Clinton + Congress = balanced budget

Bush + same Congress = deficit & debt

Washington (CNN)-- Senate Republicans on Thursday blocked the No.1 item on the president's congressional "to-do-list," refusing to allow a vote on a bill that would give tax breaks for companies that "insource" jobs to the U.S. from overseas while eliminating tax deductions for companies that move jobs abroad.
That's in the CAP and CURB the abuses on BOTH sides of the aisles plan.

If they could just figure out how to pick up their pens and write one FAIRLY.

It just occurred to me that the loyalists in the 1770s probably criticized the original Tea Party participants in Boston just as much as modern-day loyalists criticized the Tea Party movement across the nation.

Ironic, isn't it, that the loyalists back then supported more taxation and were on the wrong side of history too?

Of the 33 nations that the US has invaded since 1945 none have ever had nuclear weapons. Iran needs a nuke to protect itself from the US.

<quoted text>
Since WHEN do House Reps consider actual issues such as this? You know full well exactly what they will do on 1/2/2013 - vote for a fake tax cut thereby approving a tax hike. Do you think there is any other ending to this game?
Who knows what they will do. Boehner is a Democrat. So, he will do whatever he can to prevent any cuts to government spending.
There is no reason to hurry this. This can be addressed at any time and any agreement can be made retroactive to the first of the year.
There is some hidden reason why everyone is being led to believe this is an emergency. This is just like when ObamaKare was rushed through without anyone even reading it. Even today nobody knows what's in that law.
The government doesn't have a revenue problem. It has a spending problem. Cut govenment spending first. After government spending is cut, then let's talk about revenue issues... like increasing the number of people paying income taxes.
Any country that lets half the population mooch off the other half won't last long.
The only way to fix the insanity in our government is to have everyone dependent on their decisions. EVERYONE should have to pay income taxes. If everyone paid income taxes, the wouldn't be voting for a bunch of criminal frauds flying a Marxist flag, that's for sure.

You can keep saying "for the umpteenth time" until the cows come home. It's not going to change the facts reported in the liberal talking points newspaper, the New York Times, in 1999:

Home ownership has, in fact, exploded among minorities during the economic boom of the 1990's. The number of mortgages extended to Hispanic applicants jumped by 87.2 per cent from 1993 to 1998, according to Harvard University's Joint Center for Housing Studies. During that same period the number of African Americans who got mortgages to buy a home increased by 71.9 per cent and the number of Asian Americans by 46.3 per cent.

In contrast, the number of non-Hispanic whites who received loans for homes increased by 31.2 per cent.

(more to come...digest this first)

Sorry for my ignorance topix fam. I was partying lastnight & didn't hear the good news. Republicans came to their senses huh! Finally! Holding america hostage is only a bargaining chip for terrorist. The question remains, how now can republicans expect thee president to trust them when they admittedly tried to sabotage his entire 1st term & went against the will of the people & almost pushed the country into another recession? How can they expect him to extend the proverbial olive branch when every time he's tried they tried to takes the whole damn thing? How can republican constituents be mad when it wasn't just democrats held hostage & used for bargaining chips, they used them to. After long negotiations if the republicans aren't exposed to the representatives selfish ways, then I'm forced to believe they're just slaves to the rhythm & are really republicans because the word has more letters than the democrats.lol!

No spending cuts... no deal.
And, no more debt. Not for any reason.
The fiscal cliff was the only sane thing the government did in the past 4 years. Let it come.
Take the cuts and the taxes, and live within the means the economy can realistically be expected to afford.
There is no reason to hurry this. Any agreement can be reached at any time during the Congressional Session and made retroactive to the first of the year.
People should be asking themselves why they are being told this is an emergency.

So.

Iran has always had the capabilities to ply havoc with the world oil markets.

Unfortunately for them, they depend on these oil markets.

It would take little effort to use military fore to destroy their oil industry & cripple their economics even further than the sanctions.

No spending cuts means inevitable collapse of the government. Thus, the middle class gets anihilated.
