    We republicans are going to have to make a deal with him(obama) or we're going over the fiscal cliff. That will be a blood bath.

    Would you be ok with a 3-4% raise in the income tax on people making a million dollars per year. With the corporate going down to 28% like Obama said he would earlier this year?

    Maybe we can discuss some middle class tax cuts to help businesses?

    I think we now owe the American people at least this much?

    Fuck that. The budget gets worked up by the House, then goes to HARRY REID to work out resolution, and then goes to Obama for signature or veto.

    Fuck his dictator approach.

    Well gee, if the budget is written by the House, how come people always give the President shit over the deficit?

    Can't have it both ways, SnippedFart.

    The budget can't get pass the senate as the president's party controls it.

    Your statement is ambiguous, as it is not "the President's" party. He is a member of it, just as they are. He does not control it.

    Hell, he doesn't even control his own speeches.

    It's going to be a blood bath because Obama will not work with us.

    Because he is in league with Harry Reid to not seek compromise on a budget resolution as required by the Constitution, moron.

    We're likely going to have to back down enough to get enough democrats in the senate to pass something.

    This fiscal cliff is too extreme to allow to come to pass.

    If the Bush tax cuts are going to expire, they need to expire for EVERYONE!! Half of this country asked for this, let them deal with it.
