    Anyone paying attention to the goat rodeo formerly known as the House of Representatives knew, before noon on Thursday, that Republicans were screwed.

    So, over the cliff (curb) we go. Taxes go up on everyone. Then, end of January, the senate will propose their own bill to give the tax reduction from Bush back to those making under $250K in taxable income. So, what do the repubs do then??

    Tue, Dec 25, 2012 - US senators bickered on Sunday over who was to blame for lurching the country toward a year-end “fiscal cliff,” bemoaning the lack of a deal days before the deadline, but bridging no differences in the debate.

    Jefferson was the first Republican. He founded the Party in 1792. Republicans will do what they have always done, i.e., seek freedom from liberal government and liberal taxes!!

    His current objective is to play like his Health Care Plan is not the highest tax hike in American History by continuing to call it "something else," but at the end of the day, the American taxpayer is footing the bill for this.

    Additionally, when Democrats make pledges and promises on election day, they shouldn't be shocked that their threats to disparage their political opponents via the bully pulpit would be met with a certain holding their feet to the fire on those promises they made, but never, never, never intended to keep.

    Here's just one promise made, Obama's pledge to anyone who'd vote for him that he would reduce the deficit by half by 2012. Well, he has exactly 7 days to keep his promise, and he's $16.4 trillion dollars away from a deficit, and don't look now, but it's doubled since he took office.
