Representative Steve Pearce was one of the 34 Republicans in the House who indicated that he would not vote for John Boehner's Plan B proposal to prevent the country from going over the fiscal cliff.
Plan B, if passed, it would have resulted in a tax increase of about 3% on income of over $1M. It would therefore have impacted only 0.2% of US household and, with its passage, would have kept tax rates for 99.08% of US household where they are today.
The fact that Representative Pearce was reelected in November means that there are many residents of NM District 2 who share his views on many of the issues that face the country today. However, national polls show that on the issue of whether we can bring the deficit under control through spending cuts only -- especially given the fragile state of our economy right now -- most Americans do not agree with Rep. Pearce.
If you believe that Pearce's position is irresponsible, he needs to hear from you. Remind him that he represents ALL of the residents of NM District 2, not only those who voted for him and not only those who share his extreme views on the budget deficit.

The republicans have failed the American people once again. John Boehner (procounced - Bow-ner) needs to be removed. The republicans handed complete power over to the president today. Shameful.

Rep Pearce, do your job and put your political interests aside. You are paid very well to make hard decisions and you have failed. By not negotiating and not compromising with Obama, you have helped reinforce to the public why republicans should not be put in charge. You guys can't even come to agreement within your own party.

The republican party is dying. We picked a loser for presidential candidate in romney. We've chosen our Reps and Senators very poorly to where they can't even make decisions. We've allowed the extreme view of the TeaBaggers influence the party too much. We created the imaginary fiscal cliff and now we've failed to compromise allowing Obama all the power in the world. I'm ashamed to be associated with such a party of losers. You don't go run public govt expecting to get your way 100 perecnt of the time. Compromise.

For those that believe the fiscal cliff, 10 yrs ago, the debt was 4 trillion or so and the interest paid was 200 billion, today, the debt is 16 trillion or so and the insterest is 200 billion. Of course we're gonna keep living on credit, it's much cheaper today than it was 10 yrs ago. No matter how many imaginary fiscal cliffs these clowns make up, as long as interest rates are low, they will change nothing.

There is no fiscal cliff. This was made up to combat obama during the election. Didn't work. As long as interests rates stay low, there is no fiscal cliff. Let interest rates go up to 20 percent and you will see changes. Right now, it's nearly free to borrow money.

2012 retail sales fell to 2008 levels. The number of Americans on food stamps jumped by over 600,000 in one month to a new record high of 47.7 million and the Federal Reserve is spending 40 BILLION dollars a month buying back toxic assets. As long as American IQs stay low and heavily medicated, things should be rather peachy this coming year on the beach.

Typical libtard thinking pattern - bury their head in the sand and pretend like nothing is wrong.

If nothings wrong then let the House vote no and send us over
the cliff - the day of reckoning for you dumb as craps is here
and time to face the music.

Nomoreyears,

Stop you whining and your crying. Are you still hurt cause you were completely wrong about romney and you chose a loser to back?

NY: Typical libtard thinking pattern - bury their head in the sand and pretend like nothing is wrong.
Idgaf: listen to what I'm saying jackazz. 10 yrs ago the debt was 4 trillion dollars and we paid 200 billion in interest on that borrowed money or 5 percent for clarity sake, today, 2012, the debt is at16 trillion and we are paying 200 billion in interest on that borrowed money or 1.25 percent for clarity. If the debt goes up to 30 trillion dollars over the next 5 yrs, but the interest rates go down to .75 percent, we will still be paying about 200 billion in interest, which for all purposes is nothing. As long as it is cheap to borrow, congress (liberals and conservatives) will continue to live on credit and do nothing about the debt. If the interests were to jump up to 10-20 percent, all of the sudden, we'd be acruing serious debt of 1.6-3.2 trillion a year, then you would see all the puzzies in congress working to earn their money.
Ny: If nothings wrong then let the House vote no and send us over
the cliff -
Idgaf: the only reason that you want some legislation passed is to extend the tax breaks and to keep cuts from going into place for govt jobs. Congress created the fiscal cliff.
Ny: the day of reckoning for you dumb as craps is here
and time to face the music.
Idgaf: you talk a lot of crap, put some numbers behind your thoughts. You were severely wrong about the election. What did I tell you obama by a landslide? I'd say romney got his azz kicked so hard, his momma felt it. Put some math or logic behind your rants and stop calling people libertards. You aren't in kindergarten here.

I am liberal? Cause I make a lot of money? Cause I think people need to be fiscally responsible? Cause I don't think congress is doing a good job? Cause I think the teabaggers are too extremem? Cause I think the republican party is dead? Cause I don't believe in handouts? Cause I believe in a strong defense? Really???

I agree. The idiot we elected is, however, smart as a fox when it comes to his role as an enemy of the United States. Every move he makes is consistent with the statement that he is indeed an enemy of the USA. Heaven help us.

He is NOT a failure in his obvious quest to ruin the USA. He is becoming a howling success in that obvious goal. Make no mistake about it: OBAMA IS AN ENEMY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!!
