Dear Republican Rep. Roe:

I am sad that our representatives went home for their family time without thinking about our working and middle class families. Republicans have consistently supported cutting taxes, but right now they are raising our taxes and are doing so to protect the wealthiest of the wealthiest. So the priorities of the R's are crystal clear!

In our household of three adults, two of the three are working, and I am the only retired person. We believe that after the higher tax whammy Jan. 1 there will be another recession, and the Republicans will be responsible! In the midst of the recession will be the changes to our Medicare premiums, SS, etc., and I RECOGNIZE those cuts as necessary, but the GOP is NOT OUR FRIEND.
We all know that Pres. OBAMA HAS PLACED THESE CUTS ON THE TABLE BEFORE, but you refused to work with elected leadership. Your GOP controlled House of Representatives has paralyzed us.

Are Republicans only for the rights of those earning over $250,000 per person and to heck with the average household? As the consumers we working people made possible the skyrocketing wealth of those richest few! I believe that too many in the House have sworn a loyalty to the wrong people, like far right Grover Norquist and Eric Cantor. The Republican party does not care about us.

Like a bad dream we are paralyzed at the top of the cliff. Please wake us up by going back to Washington, D.C., and go to work.

Thank you.

To All My Democratic Friends:

Please accept, with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes
for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress,
non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice
holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the
religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your
choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or
traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or
secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful,
personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the
onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2008, but not without
due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose
contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply
that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the
only America in the Western Hemisphere. Also, I, as the "wisher"
convey this wish without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical
ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the "wishee."

To My Republican Friends:

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Pack that bull hockey in a suitcase and send it along with your Republican friends who need to go back to D.C. and go to work.
The Republicans are guilty of too much talk, too many tea party signs shaking up and down, and too much loyalty to THE EXTREMELY rich!

My GOP friend,
You have not addressed one point of the letter. We have to work with the tax cuts that are expiring, with the necessity of making cuts, and the certainty of another recession if the dance is not done right and possibly even if we do our best.
You want the blame on you in the mid-term elections? I don't think so.
And you know from the Nov. election results that blame will be laid where it belongs.
You have always been against raising taxes. Then stop it.
You won the House in 2010 on the need to stop spending and make cuts! Then you must be bold and be ready to lay your plans out there to cut Medicare, Medicaid, assistance programs, SS, BUT YOU FOUGHT TO THE DEATH TO KEEP THE TAX CUTS FOR THE RICHEST!

P.S.
Your Obama and Kool-aid rants are so passe and sad. You still don't know who we trust, do you?

You have not addressed one point of the letter. We have to work with EXTENDING the working and middle class tax cuts that are expiring, with the need to face the deficit by making SPENDING cuts, and the certainty of another recession if the dance is not done right and possibly even if we do our best.

"senior moment" ?.........That is little ageist, Don't you think?

My grandson is an 8th grader.

I asked him to read over some of your replies here once, and he told me he thinks it is "sad how talk radio and fox news deliberately mislead our country's elderly".

I'm pretty sure post #4 would stump him as well.

President Obama has a plan, and the democratic votes to match.

Boehner has neither.

No because a “senior moment” is the result of too much stuff in the head. That's why it takes 50 or 60 years of input before the forgetful symptoms begin manifesting. After all those years of cramming stuff into your head, it finally begins overflowing like a water glass unable to hold another drop without shedding something already there.

"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves." - Abe Lincoln

THERE IS NO DEADLINE, THERE IS NO CLIFF!! They have the power to change it any time they want. The whole "fiscal cliff" is just something to keep Americans fighting each other so they don't think and figure out that BOTH the Democrats and the Republican politicians are stealing you blind. If I showed you a deed to the Golden Gate Bridge would you buy it from me? Then why do you keep buying this Deadline Bridge year after year after year? THEY MAKE THE RULES! THEY CAN CHANGE THE RULES! They made up the name "Fiscal Cliff" because they couldn't call it the "Bend over and grab your ankles because here we come AGAIN cliff"

Is it wrong to tax a WORKING person almost to the breaking point, then give it to a person who is able to work, but refuses to?

This is Obama base" 96% blacks, 70% Hispanic, 70% Jew, 80% college zit faced punks who're brain washed by their liberal professors, 100% white guilt liberals, 100% losers who are on the government dole and who want free stuff, 100% dopers, drug addicts.

This really showed the true colors of the liberal union members who attack people who don't agree with them. Unions are why GM and Chrysler went bankrupt. Greed is only good when it's for union members.

Obama is taking 716 billion dollars out of Medicare for Obamacare. Social Security and Medicare need to be revamped because "BOTH" are going bankrupt. There were 10-1 workers for every retiree, but now that has decreased to 2-1. This year was the first year that more money was taken out of Social Security than was taken in.

How can you ignorant liberals deny that Obama having a spending problem and increasing our national debt by over one trillion dollars every year he was in office NOT a problem? Are you liberal really that ignorant?

Republican Paul Ryan has a budget and now John Boehner has a budget. The one Obama sent down was ridiculous and Obama's past budget was shot down by both the Senate and the House with ZERO votes for Obama's budget.

Right now Obama is stealing money from ever workers Social Security for his measly tax cut that's about $20 a week for a worker making $50,000 a year. BIG DEAL! The things is that money not being put into your SS will end up costing you lost and lots of money over the many years of your retirement collecting SS. Bill Clinton also stole money from SS to say he had a budget surplus replacing the money with IOU's that will never be aid.

Unemployment under Bush from 2001-2007 was 5% or lower with only the worldwide recession causing unemployment to rise in his last full year 2008, but Bush's unemployment average was still 5.4%. Stupid, socialist liberal news programs only and always shows the last year 2008 which we all know was bad for everybody.

Obama is going to raise your taxes no matter what. Small business will see their taxes go up under Obama because they fall into that $250,000 or more status.. The AMT will start up,

Bush tax cuts will be gone and Obama's small tax cut from your SS money will be gone. At the very least your taxes will go up by $2,000 with all, you can see up to $5,000 more in your tax bill and for what? To pay to 40 oz malt liquor drinking, welfare and foodstamp collecting, crack smoking, porch monkey losers who refuse to get a job and work for a living.
Its all about that mighty dollar and where its being spent AND SENT. Certainly not being spent on relocating or giving manufactures incentives to move buisiness from foriegn soil and re-establish the US as profitable and lucrative trade entity. This will aid in many respects in alot of the "Fiscal Cliff" decision making process as well other various difficulties that are overlooked and probably dismissed because it sounds to easy or easier said than done. But I would like to counter those thoughts by saying "You can't make make an omlette without breaking a few eggs" . Just food for thought

You need to examine the "facts" a little closer. The spending you attribute to Obama is actually interest on debt incurred under Bush. Actual spending has dropped under Obama.
