But a continuing recession is exactly what Obama, and his minions want right now. That is what they have been doing all along. You expected grown-ups at this late date? It doesn't matter. They cannot bankrupt us by November, and we will be saved by the November election, and all new leadership.

USA is like a big ocean liner, has no stirring wheel, no gear for reverse and neutral only forward no switch to turn off engine and no brakes. Oh and with a drunk captain and equally drunken mates and crew. Maybe it also true for all countries.

"If Republicans want to walk away from the bipartisan spending cuts agreed to last August, they will have to work with Democrats to replace them with a balanced deficit reduction package that asks millionaires to pay their fair share," Reid said in a statement.

Republicans are pressing to deal with the problem now. But they're not showing any more flexibility on tax increases.

Spending cuts-NO; but let tax cuts for the wealthy expire.

The spending cuts will throw people out of work, as the GOP designed them to be meat cleavers.

The tax cuts have already shown to do nothing for the economy. We've seen that twice now, that TRICKLE-DOWN, or "supply-side," or whatever the lying-neo-conservatives call it this week, just does not work.

ELIMINATING those tax cuts for the wealthy will ease the national debt at no cost to the recovering economy.
