Skip to comments.Rooting for Failure: Democrats Walk Away from Super Committee
Posted on 11/10/2011 10:08:08 AM PST by Driftwood1
Republicans offered a debt reduction blueprint that includes meaningful tax reform, needed spending cuts, and at least $300 Billion in increased federal revenue -- the piece of the puzzle the Left relentlessly focuses on. Yet Democrats just aren't interested:

—Democrats - Rooting for failure so Obama can blame GOP for no progress—
The GOP are not the ones that walked out. ;-)
The “progress” would include an automatic cut to DoD.
Republican suckers should never have agreed to this.
If anything, the only cut that should’ve been automatic would be an across-the-board one.
We obviously need more Tea Party reps.
That’s been the plan all along. The Republican Charley Brown’s have fallen for Lucy’s football-kicking hustle once again. There’s a point at which you have to call them stupid, as in Stupid Party.
THAT was the plan. Predictable communists.
People have been saying for years there are two parties in America, the Stupid Party and the Dangerous Party.
The GOP IS pretty stupid I have to agree with many posters.
They still haven’t caught on. They should hire a Child Psychologist to deal with the Democrats.
We wouldn’t be where we are today had they done that years ago.
Well, I hope all those folks who defended the debt ceiling increase in exchange for this loudly predicted sham are proud of themselves. The US is another trillion or 2 in debt, with nothing but wasted time & money to show for it.
What do you bet the Rats trick the Pubs into doing it all over again in a few weeks/months?
The Republican controlled House needs to immediately put the proposal up for a vote. If it passes, send it to the Democrat controlled Senate.
When Reid refuses to put it up for a vote, it will be pretty clear that we have a do nothing Democrat Congress.
Negotiating with the Dems is like negotiating with the Palestinians. No matter how many concessions you give up, they still believe the world would be better off without you and have dedicated themselves to that proposition.
Republican’s need to document their plan and present it to the full House and Senate.
Lack of participation by the Dem’s should be viewed as an asset, not a liability.
“Here’s the work of the part of the Super Committee that was willing to take the task seriously.”
Since the Super Committee is extra-constitutional in the first place, they can’t be held to any particular rules in producing a result!
They should have never agreed to the whole Super-Committee scam.
Why would the "tax and spend" Democrats be interested in fiscal responsibility? They do not need budgets when they can borrow and spend, print money and spend, and whine about the "rich" not paying enough.
When confronted with fiscal responsibility issues they react the same way a vampire reacts when confronted with a silver crucifix: they scream in horror!
Or they Occupy Wall Street; that is a brilliant solution! Except for the one inconvenient truth that there is not enough money in the world to support all of the socialist programs; just take a look at Greece, Italy, and France; and others on the same path that we are following under the leadership of President Barack Obama.
