Exclusive - GOP: Cuts Won’t Be Stopped, Despite Dems’ Reluctance
A few people will get the message, especially the ones lsoing their unemployment benefits and the Obambi phones.
Let the cuts go though, don't raise taxes at all.
So, who didn't see this coming 6 weeks ago when zero decided it was a "problem"? Show of hands . . . . . . . . . . . anyone? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . anyone at all?
("Will the president and the members of Congress please put your hands down? We already KNEW that you were that dumb!!")
Good. When you sell your principles and integrity, it immediately becomes worthless.
But they’ll cwy.
If a Republican was president, the corrupt media would be heaping blame on him for lack of leadership and inability to work with congress. Yet Obama is rarely if ever mentioned, as if he’s somehow not involved in the process.
I see no downside to going over the cliff. Let it burn baby!
Who cares? Rules, and the rule of law is only for pubbies - and they’re decidedly not in the drivers seat. The left is making it up as they go along so count on them to magically find some extenuating circumstances to make it “all better” (AKA get their way).
Excellent. Let it all fall down.
/S (On the heavy side!)
So the Senate has voted already?
Does the title mean they (we) are going over the fiscal cliff? Near the fiscal cliff? Fixing the fiscal cliff? Hiring cliff divers? Driving Miss Daisy? WTF does it all mean?!!!!
Twice. 2008 & 2012.
I absolutely agree. The Pubs totally suck at getting the message out.
“we went over the cliff nov 6th”
The understatement of the year (century?)...
Congress should not vote on anything until the new members are seated. No serious legislation should occur in a lame duck session
