Republicans Make Counteroffer in Fiscal Talks

There are 10 comments on the www.nytimes.com story from Dec 3, 2012, titled Republicans Make Counteroffer in Fiscal Talks. In it, www.nytimes.com reports that:

Republicans offered no specifics on which loopholes or deductions they would close, saying that would be determined next year by the Congressional tax-writing committees.

Republican Congressional leaders on Monday countered President Obama’s deficit reduction proposal with a plan of their own that is far heavier on spending cuts but embraces $800 billion in new taxes over the next 10 years.

The counteroffer represented an acknowledgment by Republicans that they had to issue their own proposal to head off around $600 billion in automatic tax increases and spending cuts next year, a fiscal combination that could send the economy back into recession.

So, Bohner's "counter offer" is the old Romney economic platform....tax cuts for the rich paid for by tax increases for thr middle class.

In other words. TRICKLE DOWN 3.0.

GOP should not bow to the socialistic dictator Obama who push American economy to bankruptcy. Evidently, Obama and his liberal entitlement class of losers and parasites will be happy to push America over the cliff for a new economical crisis which Obama will use for pushing the socialistic revolution over the ignorant and naive Americans. Obama want more and more money from the White conservative that consist of the 48% who still pay taxes to cover the 52% Black, Hispanic and Asian food stampers, free student loan receivers, free mortgage receivers, illegals with free healthcare and free education and 16 million Obama free phone receivers that consist the Obama network of parasites who vote for Obama in return for their free check from Obama. Clearly, America is falling down to its self destruction by the liberal parasites

This is playing out exactly like I said it would.

D's will point their fingers and a bitch and complain and whine about Republicans blocking their efforts and blah blah blah.

R's will point their fingers and bitch and complain and whine about Democrats not offering anything with reduced taxes and spending cuts and blah blah blah.

Then on Xmas eve or Xmas day, they will act like saviors and the world will not implode because they made a deal which adds more debt onto all of us and the children. We get screwed and the media will portray them as saviors.

Just like they did last Xmas with the debt ceiling.

Watch. It has happened for 3 years and will happen again. It is a piss poor reality show that is in rerun status.
