    Look for the US Treasury's credit rating to be downgraded because of this tax cut and unemployment coverage extension.

    Actually it will be downgraded because of the spend-fest the Democrats have engaged in for the last two years. This is just the final blow.

    This is the plan. The libs will print and create as much money as possible, spend it on things that we have nothing to show for it, and do everything they can to ruin the economy because they know they will not be reelected. When we elect a Conservative President to put our house in order he will be blamed for the hard times we are going through. What they really want is civil war but if they can't get that they will settle for shifting all the blame of the other party. This whole administration is full of TRAITORS.

    The Obama stimulus in 2009 cost 800 billion, 40% of which was calculated as lost revenues for taxes, and conservatives hated it.

    The Obama tax plan on the table, which is essentially the GOP's tax plan, will cost 900 billion,

    and conservatives are the strongest supporters of it.

    Go figure.

    I would like no deficit, and a balanced budget.
