I can name who was in charge during the Great Depression. It wasn't the Democrats. If Republicans obstruct the way out this mess, future generations may not remember the name of John Boehner, but they sure will remember his party.<quoted text>
That doesn't make sense. Doing nothing would be to go along with Obama's proposal of taxing the rich which wouldn't even raise enough revenue to cover our interest on the debt. When things get real bad, Obama would own it as Bush owns the housing collapse even though both parties were responsible. Let Obama have his way and he would own the subsequent catastrophe. Clinton met the congress halfway and got good results. This bonehead won't budge indicating he would veto any bill that doesn't tax the rich.
Can you name who the speaker of the house was when the great depression hit? But, you know who Hoover is.
The plain facts are these:
- Republican obstruction would result in higher taxes for 98% of Americans. Who do you think would get the blame?
- Most Americans (including most Republicans) favor ending the tax break for the top 2%.
- Obama holds the winning hand, while Boehner and his mob are holding their peckers.
