    COMPROMISE?

    Black mailing is more like it than compromising. Reich wing-nuts said if there is no tax breaks for the wealthy, there will be on tax breaks for the middle class or any one, no unemployment extension for the unemployed, no nothing said the party of NO.

    Reich wing nut’s compromise it “our way or no way.” and privatize everything. Remember it was the “government bailed out of "private industries” that saved the taxpayer?

    "Working with us"is just another way for Reich wingnut to say "Our way or no way."

    The right wanted tax breaks for everyone and the left wanted unemployment benefits extended, and they both got what they wanted....sounds like compromise to me.

    And of course, the net result is a punishing increase of our national deficits. See, now everyone suffers! ;)

    It's time to do what's unpopular and raise everyone's taxes AND cut spending simultaneously, but too few politicians are interested in sacrificing their political power to do the right thing.

    Here's the problem with your solution........"cut spending simultaneously" It ain't going to happen. Higher taxes only means more spending (without reducing the deficit) with the politicians.

    As I said, what's right and what they're willing to do to stay in office are mutually exclusive actions.

    Absolutely right. This wasn't compromise it was payolla.

    The ONE thing the parties can agree on is to steal and spend tomorrow's money today.

    Which is why they are criminal cartels and not representative government.

    The Dems had a super majority and could have passed AnyThing without a single R vote. So that means they didn't have enough Dems to pass anything ~
    :cuckoo:Can't blame the Republicians ~ They were the ones Compromising
