Golly, what happened, did the Republicans
use their 387th silent filibuster to gum up
the works again?
What filth!
Uh yeah, screwball. They did it from Bush's 98,000 acre ranch in Paraguay where he is currently ruling the new world order and conjuring up more hurricanes.
Gum up what works/?? Shovel ready, cash for clunkers, more taxathon policies....we should hope so!

No. It appears that the sub human "progressive" Thug people have won another great victory in the War against America and the American economy. Republicans were not able to defend us from that Pelosi. She was just too vicious and uncompromising. America lost again.

So, let the Republicans accept Obama's offer and the "cliff"
is avoided. No problema.
Obama's "offer" won't pass the Senate, let alone the House, so "no problema" there.

Why should the cliff be avoided?

The cliff was a compromise between both partys to extend the debt celing and buy some time. Maybe Obama and the repubs only agreed to it to get past the election? It dont matter they had six months to come up with a workable plan. F*%# it! I say let the cliff happen! It wont bother me. Im out of debt and can feed my family. Its high time the goverment officals from both partys started being fiscally responsible.

One good thing will happen if we go over the cliff. The payroll tax holiday will expire. The payroll tax holiday reduced social security witholdings from about 7% to 4%. As a result in 2011 the social security ran in the red. yes in 2011 social security paid out more than it took in. Dumb move reduce social security revenue just as the first wave of the large numbers of baby boomers are set to retire?
No need to go over the cliff at all.

All the Republicans have to do is to fall in line
behind Obama.

Problem solved!

Obama isn't going to be able deflect the phony story he told about Benghazi with this fake crisis he made up anymore. It's impeachment time. He deserves to be impeached for letting those terrorists escape by telling a lie. Now Lawrence, go join a fictitious angry mob and let us be. You won't be able to bear the upcoming impeachment. You know how violent you get when you don't get your way, so, get lost.

Very good point. Most Americans
agree with President Obama's mission to destroy the American economy, increase unfundable entitlements, and increase the unemployment rate to 15%. Nothing lasts forever. It was time for America to plummet into hopelessness and despair.
Support the President. Call your Congress Member and remind them of your lust to fail.

You have to feel sorry for Steele. As the RNC Chair who won back the house. But the party didn't feel that was enough and replaced him with Reibus. Reibus lost the presidency and senate(and if not for the gerrymandering he might have lost the house as well) and they decided to keep him around.

Tell nobamasan to give it a try!! LMAO
So what is wrong with going back to the tax rates we had under Clinton if more jobs were created? Its obvious that lower tax rates created very few jobs.

More? Why?

I'll never understand why people would want the government telling them what they can or cannot buy/eat/drive/etc..

Apparently we're growing more helpless as a citizenry. In my youth most of us didn't need to be reminded not to touch red hot stove burners. Now we need government programs to teach AND remind.
