You've accused others of being sock puppets, bit ironic.

ĎVULGARí: KATHY GRIFFIN KISSES ANDERSON COOPERíS CROTCH DURING LIVE NYE SHOW

And Anderson Cooper is Gay! http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/opinion-l...

This proves how far our country has declined. No wonder we are going broke. Our Nation has turned away from God, took him out of our schools, embraced gay lifestyle, gay marriage, killing innocent babies as normal. I'm ashamed of my country! But, there is no other place to go? http://rantpolitical.com/2012/11/06/the-democ...

Perspective on the Deal

To make sense of what just happened, we need to ask what is really at stake, and how much difference the budget deal makes in the larger picture.

So, what are the two sides really fighting about? Surely the answer is, the future of the welfare state. Progressives want to maintain the achievements of the New Deal and the Great Society, and also implement and improve Obamacare so that we become a normal advanced country that guarantees essential health care to all its citizens. The right wants to roll the clock back to 1930, if not to the 19th century.

There are two ways progressives can lose this fight. One is direct defeat on the question of social insurance, with Congress actually voting to privatize and eventually phase out key programs ó or with Democratic politicians themselves giving away their political birthright in the name of a mess of pottage Grand Bargain. The other is for conservatives to successfully starve the beast ó to drive revenue so low through tax cuts that the social insurance programs canít be sustained.

The good news for progressives is that danger #1 has been averted, at least so far ó and not without a lot of anxiety first. Romney lost, so nothing like the Ryan plan is on the table until President Santorum takes office, or something. Meanwhile, in 2011 Obama was willing to raise the Medicare age, in 2012 to cut Social Security benefits; but luckily the extremists of the right scuttled both deals. There are no cuts in benefits in this deal.

The bad news is that the deal falls short on making up for the revenue lost due to the Bush tax cuts. Here, though, itís important to put the numbers in perspective. Obama wasnít going to let all the Bush tax cuts go away in any case; only the high-end cuts were on the table. Getting all of those ended would have yielded something like $800 billion; he actually got around $600 billion. How big a difference does that make?

Well, the CBO estimates cumulative potential GDP over the next decade at $208 trillion.So the difference between what Obama got and what he arguably should have gotten is around 0.1 percent of potential GDP. Thatís not crucial, to say the least.

And on the principle of the thing, you could say that Democrats held their ground on the essentials ó no cuts in benefits ó while Republicans have just voted for a tax increase for the first time in decades.

By improving healthcare I'm sure you mean making abortion rights more dynamic, and kill more babies. As well as making medicare more expensive for people, as well as taking away the goverments money.

Republican speech writer for Dubya, David Frum recently said it best;

"In the aughts, Republicans held more power for longer than at any time since the twenties, yet the result was the weakest and least broadly shared economic expansion since World War II, followed by an economic crash and prolonged slump."

And I will add, just like the 'republican' Great Depression(repubs in charge for preceding 12 years), and the 1988 S&L bailout and following recession. In both cases deregulation and low taxes led to bubbles, poor real growth and job creation and Major Bust!

Repub Job Solution

Romney's economic advisor said on Fox News Sunday that our jobs problem is American wages are still way too high... we rank 15th, at the bottom in benefits and paid vacation(7 wks Germany, vs 1 week here)...

The Mitts made money, by lowering your wages and keeping the difference.
His other solution is that our home prices are still also too high, but yet lower than in the EU, Canada and 3rd world countries.. and way below new construction costs.
The Repub solution has always been a race to the bottom for the 99%, while the top one percent wages are 15 times the rest of the world.
This race to the bottom of low wages works so well that the red states have been welfare states for the past 50 years getting back on average 50% more in Fed money than they pay in..they are our national debt, poorest 15 states, bottom in education, highest in per capita food stamps, welfare and etc... highest per capita rate of min wage jobs.
Low wages, means poor customers, poor customers means poor business and in both cases low tax revenue.

So if your wages are too high and your house worth too much, then Vote for Repubs!

ok here we go again.

republicans will not go for this deal because the tea party will not let them, Mr obama and joe biden know this remember there still require buy ins.

Once the republicans are forced to vote against it or refuse it ,they will be responsible for going over the cliff. This is a set up by mr obama.

After this the floor belongs to obama . the big plus is that after tonight the koch brothers and company will start paying taxes no matter how this goes now.

Republicans couldn't even repeal their own light bulb bill, and they tried to TWICE.

Republicans all agreed to pass another anti-abortion bill and try again to repeal their own light bulb bill.
