Who wants or doesn't want it and why?
Better question: Who put the cliff there?
No one ever asks that question.
This is a crisis that was manufactured by THE SAME PEOPLE WHO ARE FIGHTING ABOUT IT.
This is what happens when we constantly kicking the can down the road.
Now the can is too big to kick any further.
But good ol' Boehner is asking to kick it down the road for another year!
What a fucking asshole!
Look at who got our credit downgraded for the first time in history.
Grover Norquist wants us to shrivel on the vine so he can drown us in the tub
Do you know of any compromises being made by either side?
Here is a better question, and it is one that it seems to be the main issue both sides are hung up on. Do we have a revenue problem or a spending problem?
we have a revenue problem and only the fucking insane partisan hacks think it can all be solved by merely cutting
We have both a revenue problem and a spending problem. We need tax reform and lower spending.
Eliminate all tax expenditures. Ban them permanently.
Raise the Social Security and Medicare eligibility ages to 70.
Reduce defense spending to pre-war levels.
We have both a revenue problem and a spending problem. We need tax reform and lower spending
which is what the dems have been willing to do for years
contrary to what you believe it is bamie,, who wants to put off the cutting of the spending for a later date. some shit different day, Congressman Boehner knows the game. Get the spending cuts on the record BEFORE you agree to the tax hikes or you will NEVER get the spending cuts. now go peddle your faux outrage somewhere else.
why aren't they willing to do it now?
