Here comes the GOP-e sellout.
Republicans = Democrats Lite. Always have, always will. There will be a tax increase with no substantive cuts. 2014 Republicans lose the House.

You are going to help the Obamunist payback his peeps for the good job they did keeping him on the throne.
If we're going to go Grecian, let's get it over with. Don't drag this out for five years. Just spend us into oblivion, default, and away we go.
This is nothing but theater..The fix is in. They will cave now and again in a few months when the debt limit must be raised.
Everybody bend over...here it comes.
That means we are being sold down the river again.
Ewwww...! Thanks, I guess.
Such a nice, chummy photo of two of the most dependable for the left/socialist/commies of our country.
There are no leaders. They are only looking out for their own interests.
