Well? Which is it? Up or down? For or against? Yes or no?
Evolving is fun
A republican who compromises with democrats will be replaced by a republican who won't. Unless fraud has become so endemic to the system, a weak-kneed republican will be replaced.
McConnell is one of the weakest links in the GOP chain. It is far past time for the GOP to stop looking for scapegoats outside the walls and start taking out the trash.
Some trash has already self-deported. Tea Party leaders Palin and DeMint gave the finger to their voters and took big bribes, quitting the jobs the People gave them.
McConnell should be next.
It's all Kabuki theater for morons.......Personally, I prefer the "Cliff" over any negotiations.
Why stop there? Personally, I'd like to see a whole lot more Senators and Congressman voluntarily leave. A "citizen politician" is far more desirable than a "permanent politician". Citizen politicians serve a few years, then go back to the private sector- they don't make it a "career". Permanent politicians who are in a perpetual campaign mode are one of the reasons we have such a dysfunctional government......
A republican who obstructs doesn't matter much these days because he/she will be replaced at the ballot-box by Americans. A Republican who compromises with democrats nowdays will be rewarded with a job well done... and probably be re-elected.
Can McConnell possibly embarass his party any further?
Agreed, I'm ready to pay higher taxes and have actual spending cuts. The cliff is taking all the politicing and posturing out of the equation, and dealing with the actual problem we have. Yes, it'll hurt, but the solution is a tough one that we all need to bare, not just one group of people. If only the rich were affected, we still would have a trillion dollar deficit next year.
