    As Israel has learned over the years you can't negotiate when you don't have a willing partner to negotiate with. Listen closely to what the administration wanted to include in this negotiation. Things their own party couldn't even pass when they had "complete" control.

    This topic was already beaten to death yesterday. The thread is still on page 1. Why did you feel the need to start yet another?

    Because the other thread had turned into personal vendetta's between a few posters. I felt like this information was worthy of scrutiny without being lost to a bunch of people who were too busy stroking their egos.

    Dem's do not want to cut spending period.
    They are trying to spin it to a Repub problem, that repubs are not being reasonable, when it's the Senate Dem's who will not be reasonable.
    The Senate Dem's know that raising taxes will not pass in the house. There are Dem's and Repub's in the house who will not go along with raising taxes.
    The Senate Dem's want to raise taxes,when we are headed toward a second recession. Talk about being unreasonable.

    40 House Republicans JUST voted for a tax increase, when they voted to eliminate subsidies for the Ethanol Industry. What do you mean, they won't go along with raising taxes?

    Corporate welfare needs to stop. But that's for another topic is it not?

    No? Wasn't it Boehner and Cantor who insisted that Obama extend the Bush tax cuts, saying that if he did not, it would be a tax increase?
