I think what he is saying is that he hopes the policies of Zero hurt the people who voted for him so that they may see the mistake that he understood from the very beginning. He believes whoever voted for Zero are not deserving of the America that he believes in. That they are perhaps in need of a lesson taught to them by Zero in the form of higher taxes and consequent financial ruin. You all realize we are going to lose our deduction for state income taxes and property taxes at the turn of the year, right? None of these sh*ts running the country are worth a thing. Reid, Pelosi, Boehner, Zero, Biden, ALL worthless scum.
IMO, we need to start to pay for what we have spent. Now is the time. BTW, unemployment runs out for 2 million people on the 1st if you didn't know. Enjoy the new year. LOL!
Thanks for explaining my position to "Hold On" Those Zero voters are a little slow to catch on!

Incredible two names to post under and you still could not explain your position. So now you need someone else to do it for you. You truly are slow. You should be just a back up singer for Neighbor and Uni, oh wait you already are but mostly off pitch anyway. Im thinking of the Marvin Gaye song "Whats Going On", you could be one of the guys you hear in the background saying "Right On". That would suit you perfectly.

My explanation is clear. It's your comprehension that's a little off key!

The only thing the Republicans are ready to play, as usual, is roulette, with the cocked gun against the country’s temple, unfortunately, and not their own. It’s worth taking a moment in this context to consider: Never have the priorities for survival and success of a major party’s Washington politicians been so utterly at odds with the priorities required for the country’s survival and success. These Washington Republicans represent the one-third of the country that hates government, despises Obama, and considers obstruction victory.

The rational two-thirds wants compromise, good-faith bargaining, higher taxes on the wealthy, a reasonably strong safety net, and lower defense spending. But the obstructionist one-third wants the opposite. McConnell and Boehner aren’t ideologically committed to that one-third in the way that Jim DeMint and Paul Ryan are, but so far, they have never once stood up to it for the country’s sake. We’ll find out this weekend who they really are.

Des Plaines, are you saying we should continue to borrow 4 billion dollars a day from China to spend on unemployment benefits and welfare? We have to pay for this stuff eventually. Now would be a good time to start. Let's go over the cliff. Let Obama realize his dream of really putting this country in a tight spot. I think we will rally out of it, but I also believe in American exceptionalism.
This isn't about political parties. It is about America getting back on a sound financial footing.
People need to work for a living, not sit around and collect "just because".
Zero wants to raise taxes on EVERYONE! That is where the money is. Republicans are in this with him. They are of one party. The party of themselves.

The deadbeats need to get off their butts and work if they want to eat for the greater good. This country didn't get where it is because of the deadbeats.The producers need to be rewarded in society, not the deadbeats. Wake up. Unless your a deadbeat?

Absolutely. Over the cliff. Much better, not least because there is no cliff.

Merely putting the Republicans in the position of voting against middle-class tax cuts in order to hold out for tax-cuts for the wealthiest would be worth it. Letting the Republicans start to eat their austerity madness too would be worth it. It is time for the public to begin to understand what comes from wacko pseudo-economic Republican tax and fiscal policy.

As or more important, we should all understand what the Republican scam is about:(1) reducing the progressivity of taxation -- the exact opposite of what we need but deeply desired by the plutocratic rich, even if they have to throw some tax-favor crumbs to the upper-middle classes and (2) using the deficit in the operating budget as an excuse to cut entitlements that overwhelmingly benefit the poor and middle class. In other words, this is entirely about shifting more net income to the top when the economy is dragging, as it has since 1980, due to income inequality and the imbalance between consumption and investable funds.

Let's get this straight. The economy has the capacity for deficit spending, estimated by Krugman at $400 billion per year, without increasing debt/GDP. This capacity should be used to fund entitlements because they were designed that way. We have a demographic bulge, the baby-boom, that produced surpluses in the entitlements when they were in their prime working years in the expectation that there would be deficits when they retired. We should, however, have tax rates that would generate a surplus in the operating budget at fill employment. That's the Keynesian counter-cyclical norm in order to smooth out the business cycle - surpluses during booms, to dampen them, and deficits during recessions, to mitigate and shorten them. Not complicated. What the rapacious Republicans want to do is force the entitlements to or near balance so that we can then run deficits in the operating budget, either using those deficits to reduce the spending they hate -- everything other than defense and corporate welfare -- or to reduce taxes for the rich, or both.

Democrats should not cooperate with the vicious Republican scam, and the best way to do it is to have them eat their own poison of austerity and demands for budget-busting tax increases for the rich. Over the cliff, over the cliff, over the cliff. There is only a rhetorical cliff, and we need to go over it so that Republicans have to eat their rhetoric and be naked before the American people.

Let the pain begin. Otherwise, we are never really going to get out of the mess we are in.

Once again, this isn't a party vs party. They are all in it for themselves. They don't believe in anything unless it fits their current newscycle. When are we going to wake up to the fact we are being fleeced? The real money is in the middle class because there are so many people in this class who pay taxes. There aren't enough high income earners to get things even close to balance. It is just demagoguery by both sides to get us to fight amongst ourselves while they collect their salaries and bountiful perks. This must end. The cliff is just a good start.

UNI, DesPlaines can't quite grasp what's goin on it seems. He believes it's a Republican vs Democrat party battle (as he is told). Bad Repub for trying to "really" save America, good Dem for trying to "keep borrowing & spending". That's DesPlaines for you...

Republicans are not interested in saving the country any more than Zero. As long as they get their hads on some of the pork barrel spending, and set themselves up for life, they are fine with things the way they are. Look at Balderman. In our little town. The waste, graft, and greed! Now multiply that times the thousands of public sevants just in this state! Now multiply it nationally. Holy Moly! This has to stop.

It was on CNN. Already taken. Same three losers on here discussing this subject too? Guns, finance, abortion, gays, immigrants? Funny how none of you God loving freaks ever discuss education. That is the only thing this country needs. Idiots.
