    Put the ball entirely in democrats hands and let them reap the rewards/punishment of this looming disaster.

    Obama has been playing his usual dishonest game. Give him the ball. Do your part and walk away.

    Fuck it, vote present

    Obama wants to lump a new stimulus along with tax hikes along with an increase to the debt limit all with this negotiation. The situation is already so complicated and he adds all this bullshit to it.

    It feels like Obama is playing pick up sticks and just grabbing for everything he can regardless of its ability to help or hinder us.

    Just like 08 he seems incapable of focussing on the real problems and is set once again to take us down an unrelated EXPENSIVE path.

    That's the only answer. Walk away. Republicans are going to be blamed for the resulting fiscal mess anyway. That hand has already been dealt. The last thing republicans should do is agree, or even disagree, just walk away.

    Republicans should give it up on the federal level and concentrate on republican haven states. Start doing what democrats have been doing for decades, start at the very lowest rung of office and build up entirely republican states. Keep cities choked out of expansion before they get too big to control.

    Obamas proposal included giving him the authority to unilaterally raise the debt ceiling as he sees fit.

    Has he lost his fucking mind? At a bare minimum he thinks we've lost ours.

    It’s a disaster of which republicans share an equal blame.

    The GOP gambled they’d have the WH and Senate in 2012 and lost; their games are as dishonest anyone else.

    It's not just the democrats.
    Congress, House and Senate both, should be held accountable.

    But IMO, the biggest blame should be put with those at the top. Not just Obama and Biden, but also the party leaders in the House and Senate.

    Maybe Hillary too. Because she's ugly.

    I'd agree, the House repubs should pass a tax revenue bill that increases revenue by reducing or eliminating tax credits and deductions and extends the Bush tax cuts for everybody.
