    If he isn't allowed to punish the rich with higher taxes he's prepared to punish us all with higher taxes and a tanking economy

    Obama has already agreed to extend tax cuts for 98% of Americans

    Why are Republicans holding it up just to appease their 2% masters?

    You asked a question. I answered. You ignored the answer and changed the subject.

    That's only because you asked a bullshit question....and you know better. Stop playing partisan bullshit politics. Our problem must be attacked from many angles. Revenue increases and spending cuts. What are the Republicans offering, again?

    2016 and a run for president for life Barack Obama in his sights. Fiscal Cliff? What Fiscal Cliff?

    Of course they'll vote to make him president for life Barack Obama. After all, he's the man who stuck it to the rich to pay for their foodstamps, their Obamaphone, their groceries, their mortgage, their gasoline, their birth controls...

    Barack the Great don't need no steenkin bread and circuses... New Axiom, the greater the nation, the more massive the pandering needed to hoodwink and bamboozle the masses....

    With the republicans in disarray and locked in internal squabbles the sequestration will happen, you should be asking why the republicans cannot even get their caucus together enough to actually propose what they say they have wanted all along.

    They offered many spending cuts in their budget in July, why won't the dem senate take it up? It's all partisan bs, everyone's pointing fingers and no one wants to do their job.
