    Did you ever think, for a moment that they did?

    That would be a mistake. What democrats want is a totalitarian dictatorship.

    Neither of you own a calendar? This is still Obama's first term and he is working with a lame duck Congress.

    This fiscal cliff was planned thinking that the Republicants would take over the Senate and the WH and would cut and cut without new revenue.

    Well, the Republicants can and must raise taxes on the top 2% and state exactly how they want to slice and dice Medicare and Medicaid.

    The Republicants don't get to dictate terms to Obama. He won....he tells them what will and will not happen.

    That is what happens when you lose. Get it yet? You LOST.

    The American public wants bipartisanship and will get it. Starting 1/21/13. Quit jumping the gun. Get your losing Congresscritters gone outta there first.

    Buh bye Connie Mack and Mary Bono Mack. Your House seats were empty like Eastwood's too much anyway.

    Regards from Rosie

    Simpson-Bowles was bipartisan. We go with that recommendation or off the cliff. But I agree with you that Simpson-Bowles is better.

    Bi-partisanship is a nonsense. It is very ineffective, and that is not what democracy is about.

    Once a party has won the elections, it should be able to implement its program. Opposition should be there to criticize the ruling party, but it should not be able to interfere. Then the voters will be able to decide whether the ruling part has delivered on its promises, and whether it should remain in power.

    That is how a democracy should work, and that is how it works in most democratic countries. The US system is simply dysfunctional -- if anything, it discredits democracy and makes a dictatorship more appealing.

    It's just a different definition of the word. Democrats want bi-partisanship as long as it means caving into democrat demands.
