What fish-face McConnell (R-Dishonesty) needs is to start telling the truth and start putting America ahead of his own and his party's interests.

He's the worst thug in the Senate, and if people in his home state had any intelligence, they'd have voted him out before this.

Has he EVER told the truth? I'd be surprised to learn that he had.

Triple Chin Mitch is in shyt load of trouble. Not only is he the least popular Senator in the Country, his disapproval rating in Kentucky is 55%, while only 37% approve.

Judd is only 4 points behind Chin, and she hasn't even declared.

That didn't work out too well.
He and his fellow America-hating Republicriminals
have employed the silent filibuster over 350 times to sabotage legislation and have been virtually
100% opposed to all Democratic attempts to
move the economy forward.
NOW the old goat wants to "deal."
Get screwed ya stinking fascist saboteur.
Sorry McConnell. Step aside. America voted to fail their families and their Country in support of The Obama.

You mean the same tax breaks that they are giving to the poor and middle class? Obama has got you so j*cked up on class warfare envy that it is spilling through your pore. You are jealous of others because they can earn a good living and you can't. Why don't you work to make yourself better instead of playing your silly class envy games? I feel sad for you as you are spending your life jealous of other peoples abilities.
First of all, you are a mindless twit. Secondly, in supporting tax increases for the rich, I am cutting my own financial throat. Jealousy suits you.

Thirdly, "class warfare", my arse! The non-wealthy need their tax breaks, while the wealthy do not.

Finally, because you consider personal insults an argument, gofuckyourself.

You're just going to have to man-up one day and face your faults scooter or next you'll be going after you're better off neighbor just because he's better off then it's a jail cell for you, scooter.
Get off your JohninLa. You couldn't be more mistaken about me (except for the propeller cap). Judging from our exchanges, you ought to know better. To even assume that I can be influenced by a "crowd" reveals your paucity of insight. My views are influenced by my own connection to the world, and my own conscience. As to your views, we're sending the net.

McConnell needs to STOP overestimating the character, integrity of the American People. We are ONLY Obamites now. Cheezy spineless Obamites.

What mindless partisan blather.
Obama sucks, McConnel Sucks,Reid is Mormon,
Blah blah fuckin blah.

The true problem is quite simple.
commerical industy feels it is their right to become inanely weathly by selling us Chinese made crap that we don't actually need.
And rather then reinvest their profits by selling us shit back into their business and making us better stuff and employing their own market base with good paying jobs so we can buy more of their garbage, they feel it more appropriate to just make a handful of millionaires with bloated salaries, and exorbinate bonus programs.
Then they feel it is their right to ask for entitlements from the government because they are such good business people that their business is no longer profitable.
Business spends so much money in Wahsington DC that all prices in America could drop by 50% if they fired all the lobbyists and just make quality stuff people actually wanted.

As far as Billionare tax cuts....
So much money has been spent convincing us regular folks that our precious millionares are taken advantage of that you would rather fight to protect the insane profits of wall street types rather than fight to make sure your own neighbors can work and eat everyday.
Disgusting.

Yep, and nothing will happen because Obama is not for all Americans, just his special interest groups like the unions. IMO, Obama wants to go over the fiscal cliff so he can blame it on the Republicans and pay off his special interest groups. Deficit reduction is not what Obama is doing.
Naturally, the Republican are thinking only
of their own special interest group, the
top 2 percenters, the sugar daddies who pay
the Republicans well for doing what they are told to do.

The rest of the American people, the 98%?

The Repubs have no interest in them at all.

Why should Biden step in? Obama/Biden WON. They have absolutely nothing to gain by doing anything positive for current and future generations of the American people. The worse everything gets the more apt Americans are to give up all hope. The more hopeless the Americans become the more apt they are to vote for anything with a d beside it's name on a ballot. Look at Cuba and Venezuela as the model for America's future. We made pitiful political choices and must endure whatever nightmare the Hard Left Pelosi Obamites will inflict on our families.
Biden will pretend to help so they can fool the general public that does not really understand what they are up to. You know the liberal Obamatons and their ilk.

"You mean the same tax breaks that they are giving to the poor and middle class? The Bush era tax cats were for all. It only Obama that wants to not give the tax cuts to all because he has to pay off his special interest groups. Obama has got liberals so j*cked up on class warfare envy that they can't think straight. It appears that they are jealous of others because the successful earners can earn a good living and you can't.

Tell Obama his $250,000 limit is not good enough for small business. Tell Obama he needs to negotiate for all Americans.

Why would I do that? I am unlike you thinking about all Americans and how they can prosper, not just your special interest groups.

So you are that jealous? As long as you are successful then I am going to zap. Remember, Obama, your Messiah, is a rich man by your definition and thus, as a true leader he must be taxed at the Rich rate of 39% with no tax loopholes. Doubt Obama will do that because it means he is a leader.
