Well, except for one thing. We’re on to them. All of them.

If you hate “third parties” so much, why are you working so hard to make the Republican Party into one?

Just where do you think we would have been in this deal had it not been for the Tea Party people? It would have been business as usual with more debt & kicking the can down the hill. This (R) party w/o the Tea party is virtually one in the same as the (D)s.

Almost all of the so-called “Tea Party” Republicans voted to borrow and spend an additional $2.4 TRILLION, just like their party’s leadership told them ON THEIR FIRST DAY ON THE HILL, in no uncertain terms, that they must do.

So, tell me, how was this NOT “business as usual”? Tell me, how is the Republican Party different than the Democrats?

Both legs of the socialist beast, the Dems and the GOP, made it obvious from the first that they had two primary goals in this: 1) Get their hands on several TRILLION more dollars to spend, and 2) Get everyone the political cover they need for the next election.

They’ve got what they were after.

Although the last part may not be as easy as they think, out of touch with the real world as they are.

We are at the crossroads for all Americans in the next election....Either you support this 60’s radical crap classroom socialism or you toss these jackasses out and save the country. If I hear one person say he’s undecided in the next election, I’m going to knock his teeth out!

Liberals are furious that President Obama agreed to massive spending cuts, and the promise of more, without any increase in revenues.

The US owes 14.3 trillion, headed for 25 trillion, and this scribe thinks less than 3 trillion in cuts is "massive"? I guess this is liberal math.
