My advice to the Republican Party is to act like a real second party that actually is different than the Democratic Party. I want them to stand up and say what they stand for and mean what they say.
I want them to quit giving into socialism a step at a time. That is the reason we are where we are at this time in our lives. They have compromised away all of Americans independence. They are not there to compromise their principles away. If they were then why have two parties?
I want them to force the Democrats to do the dirty work of making spending cuts, raising taxes, and calling their bluff on the Fiscal Cliff. The President is supposed to be our leader so let him lead.
If the Democrats will not take the lead than let the chips fall where they may. The Democrats will have to accept either the failure or success of their efforts.
The Democrats are yelling that they won and they are in charge of everything. Let them be in charge and let them take the credit for what is going to be a huge failure in an American Socialistic experiment. It is really sad that so many people will have to suffer.
Do we really believe the clueless and uneducated will realize that there has been a failure?

Let the Democrats take responsibility for this:

Barack Obama needs the Republicans to raise rates. If they do not get it before January 1, all of the Bush tax cuts will expire and the GOP will not permit any reduction without it being an across the board reduction. Moderate Democrats in the Senate and the few remaining blue dogs in the House will be in a very difficult position.

Seven different categories of tax policy expire on January 1, causing a $494 billion tax increase in just one year. This is uncharted territory: Never has there been such a steep tax increase in a single year.

The majority of these tax increases falls primarily on middle- and low-income Americans. That’s because 60 percent of the Bush tax cuts went to middle and low-income taxpayers. The expiration of the patch on the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) will cause these taxpayers to pay a tax they were never supposed to be hit with, and the expiration of the payroll tax cut is a tax hike almost exclusively on middle- and low-income families.

Actually Obama sees this as a double edged win for him. He thinks that the Republicans will be blamed for falling off the Fical Cliff. Also he gets all these tax increases that automatically go into effect with a lot more money for him to spend on his social programs. The 10% cuts that will take effect will piss many people off as they depend on that money to live on. That gives more votes to the Democrats.
Republicans will just have to suck it up for another few years for people to wise up and the economy to get so bad that the votes will then swing back to the Republicans. It is the Republicans fault that things have gotten so out of hand. If they had stood up for what was right years ago it would not be this way now.

Still, you fail to answer questions. At best, all you have is half baked criticisms, and offer no solutions, or intelligent dialogue, you are ignorant to the facts, and you are afraid to find out.

The federal government ran a deficit of $292 billion for the first two months of fiscal year 2013 – October and November 2012 – amounting to $4.8 billion of borrowed money each day.

The federal budget deficit was $292 billion for the first two months of fiscal year 2013,$57 billion more than the shortfall recorded in October and November of last year.

There are those that care what The General has to say. They are all over this forum. Evidence shows though, nobody cares what you have to say.

You copied and pasted that directly. You did some ommitting however.

From the rest of the article:

Spending on Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security were about seven percent higher --$8 billion than last year. Had these shifts in the timing of government spending not occurred, the two-month deficit figure would have been $8 billion lower than last year’s figure – about $227 billion.

Well, they would be foolish then. As we can plainly see he's intentionally doing partial quotes to make things look worse than they truly are. Isn't that just about the same thing as lying?

First of all, I didn't "copy and paste" anything, simply posted a comment. Also, these shifts did occur, always have, always will, and will only continue to increase in the future, and any form accounting wizadry will not change the numbers. Every ledger has a "last page, bottom right hand corner", that cannot be disputed, and the ledger for the U.S. is pretty ugly. Borrowing billions of dollars a day is not good. "Fiscla Cliff" not that anything will come of it, the ball is in the hands of the Democrats. Republicans, stand
