All you hear about the Republicans they want cut spend but they say nothing about raising Taxes, but they want tax cuts too. So the Republicans what more money to spend to protect the Rich standard of living but they want no taxes which will help the Poor and Middle Class because more taxes mean more revenue and The Republican don't want to that because taxes taking money from the Rich and Republican want tax cuts with put more money in the pockets of the Rich. They say the want reduce the Deficit but most of the cuts target the middle class and poor not the rich. How long do the Poor and Middle Class have endure this Bull Crap! As poor as Country we are now and all poor as the world now why do they think we that the poor mass here and around the world will continue blindly to prop up the rich! Watch Mexico next Election and then see if you can tax cut you way out of this out again. Time is up! The Rich have to pay more!

So Republican want to continue to live the United States and earn money Hustling the poor and middle class, put them to in debt to make money by offering houses and cars they will never own if they do the will not be worth nothing by the time get through paying for it, if default, the collect from the insurance and the own eventually so they get paid double or triple. The Poor and Middle Class are the Cash Cow of the Rich! They have to Hustle them the where they make the bread and butter. Socialism is opposite. The Middle Class and Poor have the power. In the 1960th, 1970th when Labor Unions were strong, President John War of Poverty. Kennedy Civil Right, Women Right. That was all Socialism. And the Rich White Racist Republicans did like it then and damn sure the like it now, but it is everywhere now in the world. Watch was is going to happen in Mexico and after Mexico goes the USA is next. Socialism cannot be stop!

By the next election cycle here is what the American people will remember after the GOP/TEA Birthers took over the house.

1) They shifted focus from jobs and the economy to defending DOMA.

2) They almost pushed us into a government shutdown.

3) They almost pushed us into a credit downgrade.

4) They fought to kill medicare and medicaid

5) But they sure fought vehemently for those top 1% wealthy people.

All at the expense of the economy and the middle and working class.

President Obama and Nancy Pelosi make over $250K a year and even they know the sacrifices they have to make. When will the GOP/TEA Birthers pay down THEIR debt?

if you were you I would tell those Anti-Castro Cubans in Florida to find another Country because is Castro Country now! And better believe that just like passions that Cubans once had for the Revolution long before he went to Russia when just Socialist. Those passions of Socialist Revolution have ignite all over the world. You will see that in Mexico! Revolution is going Mexico the poor is taken over the rich in a bloody revolution and they will not stop until Mexico is a Socialist county then Revolution will spend the United States from North, South, East and West. We are not Russians or Europeans or Cubans we will put are own American spend on Socialism in our Country but will be in the end when all is said and done a United Socialist States of America. And States that will not agree will fill free separate from United Socialist States of America and form their Country in the Northwest!

At least the GOP have a plan. Where is the President's plan? Reid's plan? With the media cheerleading for Obama, what really happens and what Obama TAKES credit for could be 2 different things.

There is a reason why The Bushes tried to Kill Castro and other Socialism like Hugo Chavez, Ortega, Che we can on and on. The want to prevent what is happen now. This is Republicans worst nightmare to see the Whole world becoming Socialism. To see Mexico becoming Socialism Country and Eventually their own homeland the United States becoming a Socialist States of America. And Socialism is a Eastern Ideal from Asia. Capitalism is Western. The East is conquering the West with Eastern Socialist Ideals that have been is Asia from Thousand of years. With Eastern Religion. Eastern Gods. Eastern Women Rights. Women more power in East then the West. Socialism is all over Asia because Socialism come from Asia not Carl Marx or Lenin who were Jews or Asians but Socialism is more older then that. I older then Sumerians. Older the Australian Aboriginals, Older then Neanderthal which are now find out came from Austro-Melanesian people. It is that older or older. Capitalism root is are old too it is ancient Evil to Socialist people of Asia, Oceacia and Central and South America, to the Altaic and Saami and Celtic people. Capitalism is Ancient Evil that must die!

Isn't it normal for the House to receive a budget from Obama's Budget Director upon which they modify it. They pass a bill. The Senate then modifies and adds amendments/changes to get it to pass in the Senate, and then it go back to the House for a finale vote before it goes back to the POTUS?

The House has received to such thing.

So far, the entire game is politics. The POTUS plan lost 97-0. Ried's bill will never pass.

I do believe the POTUS and Senate are trying to make it look like the House is causing a default when in fact they aren't, it won't happen, and it is all games.

At this hour, 10 pm, Boner has NO DEAL with his Fleaparty Fascist Caucus.

Not only have the Rethuglican Fascist Party failed the American people, but the collateral damage is Boner's under the bus, and no deal to avert a default.

What are these freaks thining?

The party of NO is saying NO to THEIR OWN DEAL.

No liberals involved here.

Obama will sail to victory on this fight by simply invoking his executive privilege under the 14th amendment and raising the debt ceiling to avoid this default.

A poker hand played masterfully by Obama.
