Take it to the Repubbies on this issue. They need to realize that they LOST the election, that the majority of this country WANT higher taxes on the rich but a continuation of middle-class cuts, and that we will not TOLERATE more game-playing with the debt ceiling, especially if it threatens any American credit rating.
Notify Boehner! Notify McConnell! Tell 'em all!

It appears that you are a DNC kind of guy here.

Well as a political atheist and a person who refuses to support a corrupt 2 party system. I have some questions for you.

Has either party, the D's or R's done anything to truly give an incentive for manufacturers to manufacture goods in the US?

Has either the D's or R's raised import tariffs to a level where it would cost manufacturers more money to make goods over seas versus in the US?

Has either party actually done what they needed to get out of these so called "Free Trade Agreements"?

Has either part stood up and actually passed laws that help the middle or lower class instead of benefiting their campaign contributors?(I.E. look at General Electric in regards to laws and lobbying both D's and R's.)

Has either party actually done something to reign in the Federal Reserve from pumping more debt based currency into the markets?

When you start to actually look at records between the 2, you will notice the answer to those questions are "no". Rhetoric does not mean shit. They will tell you anything in order to get your support. But their actions are completely different than their rhetoric.

Perfect examples:

1. Obama and the NDAA. Saying he will veto it if it includes American citizens. Then goes back and signs into law after lobbying Senator Schumer to change the language to include all American citizens.

2. President Bush with those damn GE light bulbs.

3. Nancy Pelosi saying and working on legislation for credit card fees to "help" the people, while at the same time buying into a Visa IPO making millions for herself.

Go on, try to think of one and give an example. Just 1.

In a normal world, this would be correct.

Under our current form of Fascism (merger of corporations and government), this could not be farther from the truth.

The so called "compromise" here is nothing more than a piss poor reality show. The exact same shenanigans from the past 2 years during this time and debt ceiling.

OH MY GOD WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE!

No worries, at the final minute before death, we as your elected body saved you.........

More like screwed us with more debt.

How can we stop blaming Bush? We are still experiencing the consequences of his ineptitude.

I completely disagree with everything you said, but......

Back in the late 80's I use to travel to Fairmont for 420 weight. Bought from some crazy ZZ Top looking family who lived on a mountain. I so remember the 1st time a pal of mine took me there. I had a brand new 87' Mustang GT. It bottomed out all the way up the hill. Then we got to a clearing and a really shitty house.

Little kids were running around naked and the chicks were barefoot. Two bearded guys were carrying assault rifles as they approached my car. They didn't look happy. My pal jumped out and everything was cool. Well kinda, these guys were nuts.

I was questioned for a few minutes. Once I told them my moms family was from Sutton and their family name. They chilled a little.

I dished out some cash and the guys disappeared. Here was city boy Piggy hanging out with the crowd from "Deliverance" wondering where my money was. Was starting to think I got burned and might not make it out alive. Then here comes an ATV and my 420 is strapped to the back.

Made that trip once a month or so for 2 1/2 years. Never went unarmed again, those dudes were insane. Once they told me a story about sheriff Zuma from Braxton Co. I guess you've heard what happen. I'll die with what they told me about Zuma. Taking that one to the grave.

That's a true story, not one shred of BS.

Gosh, if he runs for president again, he should be concerned... boy, those approval ratings can be tough, especially when they come from Gallop... Gallop who told us that draft dodger Romney had it in the bag and would win by seven percent...

How are those 14 swing states working out for you?

PS: it's going up, so we can use the standard tea bag "fairing in" factor that everything you say is a lie.

Gallop has him at 51 percent, and using the Gallop is off by 7 percent... that would put it at 58 percent approval.

There are certain things that aren't negoiable, as the majority of Americans indicated in the last election.
So we start with 98 percent tax cut being made permanent and the the two percent not being renewed.
Then move on to the loop holes, set a reasonable maximum deduction for all loopholes.
Everything better be on the table. He wants to raise 1.6 trillion in new revenue in the next decade- fine take all the money & assets from the top 2% of wage earners, close
l their loopholes, he's still not gonna raise that kind of revenue. It's a fantasy..

BS Mr.Wolf, When is Barack Hussein Obama going to shoulder the blame? George Bush has been out of office four years, Obama said he could 'fix' it? Another BS statement, from the "King of BS"..

Yet Romney told us he could raise that kind of revenue, plus another 8 trillion, and not raise taxes.
