Wrong again. The House has to pass the fiscal bill, and the TEA party people hold the key votes. I love it. Over the cliff they go!!!

Poor lying C*t74: 3/4s of the tea baggers lost their bids running for reelection and Boner stripped the top four of the leadership posts.

A minority in a minority party.

The Teaparty has enough strength to raise taxes, cut spending and tip he world economy downward. Will they do it, for their principles, or just out of spite?

The tea baggers don't have enough power to get elected- most were defeated- and they garner no respect in the Congress, even from their own party.

Going to be hard to get heard from the back benches.

Check the numbers again, barefoot. They have enough votes to sink the bill if they choose. I hope they are hearing from their constituents. Serves Obama right.

Nope, that was the Democrats that created one of the biggest tax bills in history overseen by Obama as he works on the destruction of America!

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142412788...

"In praising Congress's huge new tax increase, President Obama said Tuesday that "millionaires and billionaires" will finally "pay their fair share." That is, unless you are a Nascar track owner, a wind-energy company or the owners of StarKist Tuna, among many others who managed to get their taxes reduced in Congress's New Year celebration.

There's plenty to lament about the capital and income tax hikes, but the bill's seedier underside is the $40 billion or so in tax payoffs to every crony capitalist and special pleader with a lobbyist worth his million-dollar salary. Congress and the White House want everyone to ignore this corporate-welfare blowout, so allow us to shine a light on the merriment.

Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus got the party started this summer when he said he would subject 75 special-interest tax breaks to a "tax reform" review. That was pretty funny. Nearly every attempt by Tom Coburn (R., Okla.) and others to pare back the list was defeated in a bipartisan rout.

The Senators even voted down, 14-10, an amendment to list the corporate interests that receive tax perks on a government website. This "tax extenders" bill passed Mr. Baucus's committee, 19-5 (see the table nearby), and then sat waiting until Harry Reid and the White House stuffed it wholesale into the "fiscal cliff" bill."
...
"The great joke here is that Washington pretends to want to pass "comprehensive tax reform," even as each year it adds more tax giveaways that distort the tax code and keep tax rates higher than they have to be. Even as he praised the bill full of this stuff, Mr. Obama called Tuesday night for "further reforms to our tax code so that the wealthiest corporations and individuals can't take advantage of loopholes and deductions that aren't available to most Americans."

One of Mr. Obama's political gifts is that he can sound so plausible describing the opposite of his real intentions.

The costs of all this are far greater than the estimates conjured by the Joint Tax Committee. They include slower economic growth from misallocated capital, lower revenues for the Treasury and thus more pressure to raise rates on everyone, and greater public cynicism that government mainly serves the powerful.

Republicans who are looking for a new populist message have one waiting here, and they could start by repudiating the corporate welfare in this New Year disgrace."

As we can see "One of Mr. Obama's political gifts is that he can sound so plausible describing the opposite of his real intentions." In other words, OBAMA LIED ABOUT SINKING THE RICH AS HE REALLY WANTED TO TAX ALL AMERICANS.

Most posters have given up on posting back to Barefootin' as most of her post appear to losing a grasp on reality. You have to respond to her idiocy sometimes, but for the most part it is better that you just leave her alone.

I know you are right. For me it is much like shooting prairie dogs. You know you will never eradicate the vermin that way but it is an amusing pass time.
