Looks like the the 44 to 36 poll did them in??”?”””
Open to “any proposal” from the White House? Epic cave! Oh, well, now all of the government can be blamed for the economic catastrophe headed our way. ‘F’ em all!
McConnell needs to go over the cliff with Boehner.
They are the “Thank You Sir, may I have another” twins.
We need real leaders.
The term coward is too nice for McConnell and Boner.
If they’ve waited this long, why not wait ‘til the new Congress is in session? Lame duck law is potentially very bad law, because the exiting legislators have no further responsibility.
Senate Republicans open to new cliff deal
How many times have we reached a political stalemate in which all of the people in America will die from political cool aid and were suddenly “saved” by the Republicans at the very last second caving into the Communists like a sinkhole in Florida?
Answer: Every time!
What is this ANY sh**.
The point needs to be made that deal, or no deal, there is not going to be a major difference. This deal will not touch Obamacare taxes, which impact all, but people in upper brackets much more significantly. Any deal will add even more increases on the upper brackets, strangling the economy. The tax increases that expire on the 31st on lower and middle class people will be a bother, but will have little effect on the economy.
The reason they don't want this known is they don't want to make it seem like Obama made the first move i.e. "blinked".
That would set a precedent that he will have to lead also on other upcoming fights in '13. He doesn't want to have people waiting on him; he wants to blame Congress only.
Run Goobers, Run!
Capitulate! Capitulate! Capitulate!
“Senate Republicans are open to any White House proposal to avert the fiscal cliff.”
The republicans are now reduced to begging and groveling. Disgusting.
Who is the bigger wus? McConnell or Boner?
