    White House Heralds Unanimously Rejected Fiscal Plan as Base for Fiscal Cliff Deal
    December 3, 2012 – The White House stressed that the offer made to congressional Republicans last week is similar to the proposals that President Barack Obama made in his fiscal year 2013 plan – a proposal that was defeated unanimously in the Democratic-controlled Senate and the Republican-controlled House last year.

    ‘The Probability Is We're Going Over the Cliff'
    December 3, 2012 - Erskine Bowles, the former chief of staff to President Bill Clinton whom President Barack Obama named a co-chair of his own National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, said last week he believes the federal government will probably go over the fiscal cliff.

    The TEA Party is over.

    I was a hard core member until they flipped from anti bailout & anti single payer health-care to protecting the bailed out banks & trashing the current ACA/Romney care. Then they want to add $716 more to the Medicare entitlement.

    Ryan/Romney largest campaign contributers is a complete list of all the bailed out banks.

    Over $2.5 Trillion in bad mortgage investments made by banks & rich assholes got flipped onto the Fed's balance sheet. Now the TEA Party is defending this theft.

    Where did the Tea Party ever support bailouts?

    And why would opposing government healthcare be a bad thing?

    The demise of the Tea Party groups is greatly exagerated. And don't think the repubs in the House and Senate aren't aware of that. If they cave over the fiscal cliff deal, some of 'em won't make it out of their respective primaries. Whether they stand a chance against a democrat opponent in the mid terms is another story, a lot depends on the strength of the economy over the next 2 years.

    The TEA Party tried many times to repeal Dodd-Frank to let the Banks & GSE's run wild again with the shadow banking system. TEA Party Paul Rayn's ticket was funded by all the bailed-out financial institutions.

    Opposing that first single payer government health-care communist takeover plot was a great thing. But opposing the current ACA without addressing the EMTLA puts us back on the road to ruin.
