With the fiscal cliff looming for the United States, some Republican members of Congress said Sunday they are ready to break a long standing pledge not to raise taxes.
"The only pledge we should be making to each other is to avoid becoming Greece. And Republicans should put revenue on the table," South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said on ABC's "This Week."
Read more of the discussion of the fiscal on "This Week" today.
Graham's comments followed those by another Republican senator, Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, who said last week he'll no longer abide by the pledge.
"I care more about my country than I do about a 20-year-old pledge," he said in a local interview.
He got support today from House member Peter King, another Republican from New York.
"I agree entirely with Saxby Chambliss -- a pledge he signed 20 years ago, 18 years ago is for that Congress," King said on NBC's "Meet the Press." He added, "The world is changed and the economic situation is different."

Republicans are coming apart at the seams.
This signals the end of Reagan-Republicanism (thank God).

From the comments:

"When up on the roof there arose such a clatter, that I went for my rifle and prepared for blood spatter."

Nothing says "turn the other cheek" like shooting someone in the face.

Hold your fire until he's completely out of the chimney ... "

Its fun to watch Republicans wanting to cut Medicare, Medicaid, Social; Security, veteran benefits, etc while being willing to send us over the cliff fighting for tax cuts for the wealthy.
Evidently, they still don't get it as to why they lost this past election.
Evidently most seem their pledge to an over sized lobbyist is more important than their pledge to this country.
I suspect that in the coming months "Grover Norquist" will become the most forgotten name in Washington.

Actually, there was a glimmer of hope in 2010. But the democrats in the Senate decided to maintain the status quo at all costs - even to the point of refusing to vote on a House passed budget.

So, you'll be glad to know I'm perfectly fine.

Can't wait until your taxes go up. It will be painful for all of us but at least it will prove who's really dumb.

President George Bush is out of it now, and

In a way, I am relieved that another good man will not be blamed when it was impossible to clean up this mess you voted for.
Have a good day.
When the economy improves, unemployment drops, Wages tick upwards, housing comes back, peaceful solution to Iran, Better healthcare with 30 million more insured, reduced oil imports, Reduced dependency on oil, cleaner air, cleaner water, fewer greenhouse gas emissions and lower gasoline prices through reduced demand, we will own that.

You will own the Bush Administration & its massive debt, the worst recession in 80 years, the housing collapse, the near financial meltdown, a war based on lies, and the knowledge that we got to a balanced budget with Bill Clinton & then watch George Bush, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell & Pail Ryan piss it away to hand out tax cuts to the wealthy.

That is what you own. Too bad you can't choke over it.

And they are turning over in their graves watching Obama destroy it. The affirmative action president should be given whatever he wants from taxes to punish the wealthy to more job killing cronie favoring legislation along with amnesty for illegals. It will be fun to watch! I intend to reduce my economic footprint and ride the Obama Freebie Gravy Train to Greece. All Takers Aboard.

I went to school in Massachusetts; in elementary school, nearly all the teachers smoked and they did so in the classroom and the breakroom. In highschool, we students were allowed to smoke in class; you're an idiot.
I had nuns in grammar school. They smoked in the classrooms as well when we were at recess. In high school the teacher's lounges had smoke billowing out of them all day. They too smoked in the classrooms. She was more than likely home schooled.

My money's on Rove being quietly discarded. Grover signed up a bunch of tea party mutts in 2010 and will likely be around until the dems retake the house in and a few states in 2014.

We weren't allowed to smoke in school; however, as the student of educators, I smoked in the bathroom just to get caught. I remain a rebel.
