If we fall off the fiscal cliff, which party will be to blame?
You know what to do, Freep this poll!
You Know, The Office Party!
The correct answer of course is BOTH PARTIES. And anyone who thinks otherwise is kidding themselves
The libs have a huge start on this one...
now all you have to do is get 457 more votes to worry them...
The point is moot. “We the people” are fools - and worse - sheep who will believe what the Won spouts.
Pain - will be the purifier - and the teacher...
Anyways, those trillion dollar deficits and trillion dollar stimulus re all on Obama and the Democrats, if you ask me.
We, the people are to blame.
We are the final guardians of our freedom, our country and our well being, and we are derelict in our duty.
I am starting to think the only way for the Republicans to not take the blame is to just walk out during every disputed vote. In using this form of protest, those disputed spending bills favored by the dems will pass. When the economic destruction these bills invite comes to pass, the Republicans can honestly say that they had no part in it......
But who am I kidding? The media will just blame the repubs anyway saying that that their passivity in the face of our economics problems did more damage than the dems who were, in their opinion, trying to fix things.
Catch 22 in political terms.
The fault will be the dims, but with Boehner and McConnell as the faces of the GOP, it won’t be hard for the dims to blame it on the GOP and the public will swallow the lie.
Lets not forget that this whole “fiscal cliff” is the biggest LIE EVER TOLD, The “fiscal cliff” they are talking about is in reality the Slamming on the Brakes of Monetary and Fiscal Insanity before we go off the cliff. Let me tell you this, we are heading fullspeed for that cliff, if we don’t slam on the brakes with this sequestration deal they made, it will be much,much worse. If the outright theft of value of every American isn’t stopped and real soon, ie. Immediate Balanced Budget using Real Math, you will be begging for this so-called “fiscal cliff” that they are doing everything to avoid. Because to do so, would be instant recognition of all the Fraud Perpetrated by the Government over the last 40 years as well as the Fraudulent Economy we live in. A whole lot of people leaching off the Taxpayers will be devastated financially, But thats what happens to fleas on a dog, when it becomes unbearable, you get rid of all of them at once.
Who cares. ...let it come.
It will be worth paying the higher taxes to see all the
Opukes wailing in pain when they look at their paychecks.
The shock will give them a case of Obarrhea. ...Yes that
crampy and nauseous feeling of anger, disappointment and
What follows is a runny brown kind of buyers remorse.
The weak and their enablers who put their reality on someone else's bill.
And those who refused to see what was happening and take a stand before it got to them, too, because by then it was too late.
I can't help but agree. Half budget cuts in domestic and half in defense sounds pretty good to me. That's how it works in the real world. Let 'em try to do less with more. If it really hurts the military, we can always rebuild it later.
As for the tax rate hikes, not what I'd like to see, but at least it gives the Republicans an issue to run on in the next election. Elections never seem to get over people's built-in biases swing voters (i.e. those who "make up their mind in the booth") have on the parties. They believe Republicans will cut taxes and be strong in a war. They believe Democrats will give them more welfare when times are tough. So I don't see the Republicans getting blamed for tax hikes. And definitely not enough so that voters would actually believe the Republicans wouldn't cut taxes back down if they won the election.
Yep. I was gonna say just about the same thing.
Maybe 60% Democraps fault, 40% the repubes, but sure enough blame to go around.
Obama. The Democrats.
