I made this post below in another thread and it seemed to be well received. So Im making a thread with it looking for challenges to what I said If you want to be mad at anyone be mad at the president. The Repubs, Dems, and President all had a deal set a week ago, then obama added another almost 50% on the revenue side AFTER they had an agreement which made the agreement fall apart. Or blame the senate for striking down both the ryan bill and the cut, cap, and balance bills......both of which the republicans put forth. What proposal, with actual numbers, has the president supplied? What bill did the minority dems try to work on with the republicans in the house? What specific plan did the democrat senate try to put forward? Both sides share blame in getting us here but it seems only one side has done more about it than just talk, and that side is the republican side.
