You are absolutely correct...they are not in office yet. Guess who still has the majority in the House and the Senate???? Or is that just one more little thing that "doesn't count" because the Dems are in charge???? Amazing how all you libs want to blame the Republicans but they don't have the majority! This is priceless!!!!!

You think the democrats wanted to extend tax cuts for the rich? Do you understand what is going on? The dems want middle class tax cuts, middle class! They also want unemployment benefits to be extended. The only way this was going to pass was if the republicans got their way and we added 4 more trillion to the debt. The president is caving in to them and it isn't sitting well with the liberals.

So should we attribute your skills at grammar and punctuation, or the lack thereof, to having parents who are cousins?

Once again I will ask you....who is in the majority right now???? Who is in the minority right now?????? This whole tax scheme has been in the works for weeks. The Dems are running around like chickens with their heads cut off trying to figure out how to save their jobs! So extending the tax RATES another 2 years is adding to the deficit but extending the unemployment benefits another year isn't???? Really???????

Do I have to spell it out for you sweety? The dems want to add to the deficit in order to help the middle class and the unemployed and spark the economy (the middle class and the unemployed spend their money which benefits the economy where as the rich hoard their money and put it in tax shelters where it does the economy no good).

The republicans and the tea party wants to add to the deficit so the rich can get their tax break.

Good Day,

Yet... the Dems voted to not even let the "compromise" get to the House floor for debate. Yeah, they really want to help the middle class, I think not. Can't let those pesky rich people keep their tax cuts at the expense of the middle class.

I tried but had to stop when he began politicizing Christmas. On a side note we have an office pool set for the date where the windbag Limbaugh keels over from a massive heart attack or stroke.

I have Aug 16th 2013;-)

Nice! What a class act you are. Not surprising though, the left has been exhibiting signs of little or no class for several years. I wonder if it has anything to do with Slick Willy and the definition of the word "is?" Apparently that was the cue for the left to become classless. And yes, the Dems wanted the unemployment extended which would add how much to the deficit???? But extending the tax RATES would harm the economy??? REALLY????? Classless AND clueless.

And increase the middle class taxes (which is what would have happened without the tax RATE extension) and the middle class has less to spend. And unemployment pays so very much, eh???? Unemployment doesn't even figure out to minimum wage and you whine about a "living wage"????? REALLY????

I hate to break it to you, but you really can't spend your way out of a deficit, despite what Joe Biden says.
