Yep, they need to see all the bribes that the Democrats promised to get back into power and how that can not be as we will be broke.

Obama and Dems won the election, and should be setting the agenda. Repubs need to get into line and meet them at least halfway, if not closer.
Taxes on the upper bracket HAVE to at least go back to pre-Bush levels. That's a given, too.

Maybe you didn’t get the memo… the American people came out in record numbers to re-elect President Obama in a landslide because we recognize his LEADERSHIP. You don’t get Osama bin Laden without the kind of leadership that he displayed.

The Dems didn't win the House of Representatives DUMMY!!!!! Nothing gets done unless you control all three branches of government. Even if you took all the wealth earned by the top 1% it would do little to fill the hole the Democrats have put us in. We don't have a taxing problem-we have a spending problem. Increasing taxes on the wealthiest Americans (to put more crackpipes, sneakers, cell phones and rubbers in the hands of the unwashed parasites of society that pay no taxes)will only bring about 82 billion in revenue to the government. While that buys alot of cable TV for welfare queens it is only enough to run our bankrupt government for about 8 days.
Maybe the slugs of society (single moms, welfare mothers, deadbeat dad, transgenders, and "phony disabled" (healthy adults on SSI afraid to go to work because they have ADD)should start contributing and paying some taxes.
Entitlements will be on the table because they are the reason this country is going bankrupt. If they are not-no deal. Dems don't control the House-too bad!!!!

Of course the "mandate" did not include the House of Representaives which means nothing will get done.
I loved the way you right-wing tea-bagging idiots came crashing down to reality on Election Night… keep swimming in your delusions; republicans in the House have already began to give in… President Obama will get everything he wants as taxes will go up on the rich; that’s what we want, that’s what we’ll get.

The people have spoken-hold the line on tax increases. Do not budge until the Democrats deal with entitlement reform. Get the 47% with no skin the game to pony up-everyone needs to sacrifice. The only mandate the people voted for is more gridlock. Enjoy!!!!
I am truly enjoying the fact that President Obama won… BIG… in a landslide.

You also don't get the first Ambassador in 30 years murdered by terrorists and a former Navy Seal left to die because our nappy haired President was busy campaigning in Vegas.

By the way; Republicans still control the House. Good luck getting anything done. Let the country go off the cliff-American deserves it.

You can have the Clinton tax rates, if you also go back to the Clinton spending rates.

Why is Glen Doherty dead?
Where is the order to allow violence in another country that the president has to sign before help could be sent into Libya? There should be hundreds of copies. Where is one?

Democrats refuse to discuss budget cuts. America voted to give Obama and what pass for Democrats in Congress a mandate not to fix our financial problems and to do their part to leave NOTHING but bone crushing DEBT and more than enough devastating entitlement swag to rob all American children of their future hopes and dreams.

It is truly a GREAT day for the least among us.

Let me explain this as slowly as possible. Put aside your class envy and sense of entitlement for a second. Some people use their God given talents and through sacrifice and hard work actually accumulate wealth. These people that you constantly demonize are what we like to call "producers". They have skin in the game. Taking more of their money and needlessly putting it into the hands of government so they can squander it on the parasites that have not earned it is called "redistribution of wealth" or more properly "stealing".
It is so easy to vote away other peoples tax dollars when you do not pay any isn't it. Almost 50% of this country does not pay a dime in federal taxes. Yet in your world they are not required to "share the sacrifice". Just ask the toothless welfare mother that is constantly with child and can't identify the fathers of her other six children. The typical Democrat. She is without question the biggest drain in any civilized society. She serves no purpose other than to procreate and extend her hand into the pockets of others to keep her liquor cabinet filled and an ample supply of crack on her milkcrate nightstand. She breeds and defecates in the stairwells of her publicly subsidized apartment. On a side note,thankfully, the savages that she resides with occasionally go wilding and in the process they slowly eliminate themselves through violence.What violence doesn't take multiple trips to the abortion clinic make up the difference. With that said, these subhumans who do not understand the concept of responsible behavior are led to believe that they are entitled to other peoples money. They produce nothing. They provide nothing. They are nothing. They pay no taxes. Yet these animals vote. They vote to raise taxes on others while they pay none themselves.
No tax rate you can conjure up on the rich will fix the spending problem we have. Taking care of the failures of society is a costly business made even more costly by sapping their belief in self determination, hard work and responsible behavior.
The money is running out,as soon as Democrats realize that they have run out of other peoples money their utopian idea of a cradle to grave society in which every is dependant on incompetant government bureucrats will come crashing down.I welcome the fiscal cliff and I pray this country drives over it and with it the failed ideas of progressives and liberals.

Answer these questions.

How can Rachel Maddow claim to be a women when it is quite obvious she is swinging a trunk?

Why did Obama's mother have jungle fever?

Why does Elena Kagan have really short hair and a love for softball?

Why do public school teachers enjoy teaching sex education and then demonstrating on their students?

Where is Keith Olbermann?

Why do residents of public housing defecate in the stairwells?

Why does Barney Frank keep sticking his..........

Why isn't Janet Napolitano's salt and pepper buzz cut sexy?

Why do liberal women believe I have to pay for their birth control?

Is Obama's mother-in-law stinking up the Lincoln bedroom?

Just a few questions. Give them a try.

The people have spoken - you need to LISTEN.
Glad to hear that someone is actually listening to the people -- that will be brand new information. Hmmm trying something new rather than the one sided lies and spins. Glad to hear it.
--Uh, guess you mean they should only listen to Some of the people -- frankly, that's been the problem. They really should listen to all citizens and represent them - truly represent, not make up stuff for personal gain and/or personal power.

The people who want taxes raised on the "really rich" have no math skills. Do they realize that the amount would amount to less than 2 cents on the dollar?

Of course, we need a tax overhaul, including raising for all. It's just that most people want the "others" to pay. It's just that most people want "other programs" cut. We need spending reduced - not a minute lessening of "proposed" or "maybe" spending, actual spending cuts.

Programs have increased dramatically with little to no benefit to the citizens of this country. Now that neither side is running a campaign after the close one that ended earlier this month, perhaps they could get to governing - not "get back to" as they have yet to set a budget (required by law).

When will the folks in DC realize that endless spending, increasing freebies, and raising taxes on the producers, and printing more paper money without backing will do little to "fix" any financial woes. It's time a serious "fix it" conversation was held. I'm tired of changing the rules from 2/3 to 50% and midnight passing of unread bills. Vote someone into office who is a true representative and servant of the people rather than a life-time politician whose only goal is reelection and cronies' payoffs.
