Are Democratic lawmakers are invested in doing NOTHING about the fiscal cliff?
This is a frightening idea, especially when Democrats are only calling for tax increases and not facing escalating entitlement costs.
Are our lawmakers, particularly Democrats, so invested in certain issues that they have no reason to solve the problems? One brave Hispanic Republican noted this on NPR yesterday: the Democrats have no reason to solve the immigration problem because the issue keeps getting them re-elected. When re-elected, they get outstanding perks and privileges, far beyond the reach of most voters, and our fair representatives naturally resist reducing those benefits for themselves.
Its the same with education. Democrats have controlled education through the unions for decades, and we have seen no improvement, instead only whining about teaching to the test when Republicans try to act to improve school districts by getting rid of the worst schools. (We need a new way to evaluate schools, but dont look to the unions to approve fresh ideas.)
Is it the same with the fiscal cliff? Ive been wondering why Democrats dont offer a reasonable plan with cuts, but then that would countermand their pandering to the seniors and the poor. Why offer a plan when it is easier to blame the mean, evil Republicans for making cuts to Democratic constituents, thus ensuring their Democratic re-election?
What kind of a country is it when the party that procrastinates, plays politics and demonizes the other party is the one that keeps winning and making the situation worse by the hour?
What kind of electorate is the one that votes for the liars and cheats: the kind of electorate that has been taught by politically correct Democrats.
We need a revolution of change and attitude to cope with the problems. We need outspoken and articulate Republicans who can explain complex issues to the masses, and we need an unbiased media to rely and debate these issues. We need politicians who call a spade a spade and stick to their guns.
the rinos won’t even stand up on their own back legs and ask why 0bama is asking for more taxes, while presenting a laundry list of extreme waste, that we are already p*ssing away. ax ‘em why they want to waste even more, right in front of America, while illustrating what we are already wastin’.
the dems WANT to go over the cliff, because all them obamacare taxes will be lost in the general tax increases, and they can blame republicans for.
I think most of them realize now that the end is near. Their only motivation is to find a way to blame it on the Republicans. Bonehead Boehner will give it to them, of course.
Agree fully. The Demonicrats have absolutely NO intention of solving this problem - NONE WHATSOEVER! They want to “go over the cliff” so that they have a convenient excuse to blame Republicans.
Yep, they plan on picking up the pieces after the fall. I don’t expect anything will be done to prevent capitalism’s collapse. It’s a goal, after all.
