When your agenda is to rob Peter to pay Paul, the Paul's of your society generally have no objections.Ahhhh, the GOP.
Just lost an election in which the main issue was whether to raise taxes on people making more than $250K. Polls show a majority of Americans think we should do so. Polls also show that if a fiscal cliff deal isn't reached, most people will blame the GOP.
So what does the GOP do? Refuses to extend tax cuts on 98% of Americans in order to resist doing what Americans have clearly stated they want them to do. Brilliant.
"HEY 98% OF THE PEOPLE. DO YOU THINK WE SHOULD TAKE MORE MONEY FROM THE PEOPLE THAT SUPPORT THIS COUNTRY?"
"HOW MUCH WILL IT COST US?"
"NOTHING, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING."
"SURE. WE SUPPORT TAKING MONEY FROM ANYBODY BUT US."
Wow. Now that was a hard sell.
Most Americans are against Commie Care, so what does DumBama do? He keeps it right where it's at. Brilliant.
I thought you inferred that a politician is suppose to carry out the will of the people? Oh, that's right, only if it's Republicans--not Democrats.
