    I should say Im not shocked. But I actually am. The Republicans actually did it. They LOST the election. They should have some humility and realize they need a change in message, asap.

    But no. They are rolling the dice with the well being of 98% of Americans......all to avoid making millionaires pay more in taxes.

    Will taxing millionaires more fix the mess? NO. It wont. Will taxing them more make it worse? NO, not much worse. Will going over the cliff make things worse and hurt everyone? YES, it will.

    These rotten motherfuckers showed their true colors. All those years I sided with the GOP, and heard the left crying that the GOP cared about only the rich and I laughed.

    Now, I see they were mostly right all along and I couldnt see it.

    The whole country can...or should...see it now. These MF'ers actually did it. They actually took down the whole country just to avoid upsetting the rich.

    I admit, I'm a bit suprised. I really thought a deal would be made in the 11th hour.

    You are aware that Biden and McConnel had an agreement last night and your dear leader promptly torpedoed it, right. Your pampas little dictator wanna be is saying it's my way or the highway and he can go fuck himself. You can face facts or not, the republicans offered a compromise and like Maobama said this afternoon, he ain't interested.

    So you are admitting that a higher tax on the rich will do nothing except punish them for being successful and you see nothing wrong with that?

    You're a moron bucs. Its about the NO CUTS being in the package. If the dems get the taxes they want cuts will NEVER materialize.

    You sir are a fool

    The GOP did make a deal on revenue.
    Now they are working on the spending side....
    Good luck with that.

    And I thought the GOP did a good job by not allowing the hit on people making $250K...

    He is the president. He won. Elections matter. The GOP can't seem to accept that. The Dems hold the Senate and White House. Of the 3 wings of approval for a law, they hold 2 of them. Sorry, but it IS gonna be their way...or NO way. It will NOT be the GOP's way.

    Which means the GOP had 2 choices:

    - Allow taxes to go up on 2% of people
    - Allow taxes to go up on 100% of people

    For a bunch of pricks who preach about hating taxes so much....they sure were willing to let them go up on a whole lot of people.

    All so the folks in the gated country clubs dont have to be alone in paying more. They're still paying more. This wasn't about the rich paying more or not paying more. It was about the GOP saying "If the rich pay more, you ALL are gonna pay more also".

    Fucking children in the GOP. This was stupid. This was unnecessary.

    But the GOP fucked America on this, all just out of spite, just because they knew they lost, they knew taxes were going up on their rich friends, and they KNEW they would not allow that to happen without fucking the rest of us along the way.



    Fiscal Cliff 2013: The GOP's kick in the nutts for payback to all the middle and lower class folks who voted against Romney.

    You must be related to truth matters.....We live in a republic that protects the minority from the majority.....You may want to remember that when the left is again in the minority....
