What’s to negotiate??? Wasn’t sequestration the result of negotiation??? Let sequestration set in —
Good cop/Bad cop. They got their tax increase. They got the money. They got what they wanted.
The same thing will happen with immigration. They'll give amnesty with a "promise" to seal the boarder. They'll get what they want, Latino voters, and water down that little problem - the border thing - later.
Washington wants us to think there's opposing forces in Washington, because a "boogie man" is a great distraction. In the end, the politicians get richer and more powerful every time. The people get poorer and more oppressed by the day no matter which party is in charge. The democrats just work faster, so people think the republicans are "different."
Take Obomacare, for example. It's a tax. Tax bills must originate in the house. Obomacare came from the senate. Why didn't Republicans do something stop it?
They didn't want to.
