    Not sure how both parties could be so blind.

    Mitch McConnell has publicly stated that after the new Republican congress sits, there will be no more compromise. The number one issue for them is not guns, jobs, the economy, nuclear weapons, helping America's poor, the unemployed, health care or anything else that is important to the majority of Americans.

    THE most important issue is to make President Obama a "one term" president. That's it and nothing else, period! Republicans have said that over and over again. They are being completely honest.

    Everything Republicans have done, whether it's filibuster nearly every piece of legislation or refuse to compromise on tax cuts for rich people at the expense of millions of Americans, they have been completely honest about. They were honest during the entire last two years. Waterloo, fail, one term - honest.

    The REAL reason why this congress has passed so many things is because the Tea Baggers will be coming into office. Both Republicans and Democrats will be leaving in record numbers. They don't have to follow either party. They only need to follow their conscience.

    They are out and they know it. So why not do some good before they leave?

    After the first of the year, we will be back to gridlock. Republicans have said, "NO COMPROMISE" and they mean it. It's not a threat, it's a "fact". They will continue to be honest, at least about that.

    None of the pundits have pointed this out. Not one.

    Of course its going to be "no compromise"..........THATS what election day was about asshole.:fu: America said on election day, "Stop spending our kids lives into oblivion."

    This is a dynamic not at all understood by the k00ks on this forum. For them, racking up 2 trillion more of debt is no big deal. ( imagine these morons managing your finances??:lol:)

    After January 3rd...............its repeal time s0ns.

    And in the next 2 years, the k00ks had best pray for 3+% growth rates or conservatives will spend '12 to '16 doing the drink and the two step on a daily basis!!!:funnyface::funnyface::funnyface:

    So the repubs have promised to do exactly what democrats have been doing since Obamas election. This has you upset? You do realize democrats still hold the senate and the veto pen.

    Get over it. The government shutdown will benefit all americans, until congress says it wasnt the workers fault, send them checks anyway.

    Why has the tea party been silent on the big tax give away if they were so worried about the deficit?

    The tea party is a sham

    Obviously, like most libs, you only hear what is said, and fail to analzye what is said... I think we all know with liberals that that is no big surprise but by making Obama a one term President we can stop the damage he is doing to this country.

    I'm not sure why that is so hard to understand... and I didn't even go to Harvard or Yale!!!! :lol::lol::lol:


    Oh also, the reason none of the pundits have said anything is because they want him out also. He is not going far enough left for them.

    The thought of a Congress that is unable to pass any more laws is an idea that does not scare most Americans.

    My god- what we do without them
    A common thought for many in the "dependent class"

    You can't 'give' somebody something that is already theirs. This whole 'tax "cut"' thing goes way over your head, huh?

    :eusa_liar: as always.

    Tea Party Discontent Over Republican Tax Cut Compromise, Leadership Positions - ABC News

    Tea Party Calling Tax Compromise "Backroom Deal"

    How many votes do the 'tea parties' have? How many of those GOP incumbents subscribe to the ideals that most tea party members and empathizers hold dear? The GOP should be much more concerned about the elections coming up in 2012, especially at state and local level.

    The obvious thing they have missed is that government has overgrown the size and scope of what it was supposed to be and should be.. the behemoth that our governmental system has become MUST be cut back incredibly and cut back now
