We must run tough candidates in 2014.

RAT bastard commie pig 0dumb0 having a great laugh, as he beats the sh_t out of the cowardly Repukes once again, in both the Senate & the House. The bastard is well on his way to destroying our once great USA, and doing it with the active support & complicity of the GOP Repukes!

We still have a democrat house of representatives, even though some of them have dishonestly affixed an R beside their name.

Well, this goes to show that Obama is quite competent. His goal are just not what we might hope or understand. Our national community organizer. The goals and aspirations of the 60’s Marxist / social justice activists are becoming national policy.

I don't think our country will make it to 2014. In any case, even if we do, the Repuke party is pretty much all annihilated by the RAT bastard socialist 0dumb0 and his fellow RAT annihilators

One person who deserves blame for this is Karl Rove. He was the one who, in 2001, thought it preferable to let the Bush tax cuts have an expiration date. In his figuring, that would allow Republicans to bash Democrats for not voting to extend the lower tax rates. How did that work out? If the tax cuts had been permanent (even with a lower tax cut to fit within the dollar figures), then the next Dem President wouldn’t have the leverage that Obama had.

I felt myself physically react to this news...I am sure my face blanched. I have a sense of doom, like a darkening shadow is bearing down on what is left of the country I love.

There can be no good outcome to the global escalation of debt...debt that no country, including the USA, has any intention of covering. The collapse, I expect, will be camouflaged by the fog of war, and the USA will be the prime target.

Why, you may ask? Of all the countries in the world, we SHOULD have been in a position to be able to pick up the pieces, economically. Instead, we've been doing our best to catch up to Greece. Rightly or wrongly, we'll be blamed when the global ponzi scheme becomes irredeemably unsustainable.

I grieve for my country.

It won’t make any difference. Boehner will find a way to help his ‘rat buddies thwart any conservatives that get elected.

It was oblivious who really runs the house tonight.
And it ain’t Bonehead.
Pelosi democrats delivered a huge majority on this vote.
What does that say about the current leadership?
It needs to change, that’s what it says.

The republicans went for broke and lost out.

Maybe we should have gone for plan B.

Well McConnell was able to avoid a big confrontation which might have cost him the election in 2014.

The Bush tax cuts had sunset provisions that made them expire at the end of 2010, since otherwise they would fall under the Byrd Rule.

I watched a Twilight Zone episode earlier tonight in which a man got tired of contemporary society and took a train back to another point in time. It was intriguing.

Where are the cuts? Republicans have done a incredible job fighting for taxes. BFD! We are broke. The GOP don’t care about debt. And the Dems are a given.

Hate to say it but the Republicans need to hire Axlegrease to show them how to toughen up and win. You can’t be a gentleman candidate and win against lying, thugs. Ain’t gonna happen.

I want what you are smoking...went for broke??

The GOP came out the gate bent over, white flag with ‘Plan B’. There were NO discussions/debates/talks in the open, it was all behind closed doors, so the leadership could try to ram-rod it down the Houses’ throat. Nobody else had any thoughts on the matter?? Why not take the talks to the People?? Where’s the 3-day waiting before voting at the least?! The world would not end in those 3 days...

This was capitulation, plain and simple. Stop making excuses and sucking up to the losers who want to enslave you and yours.

Actually, we have worse. As bad as Pelosi was, she never dared to raise income tax rates, estate taxes, or capital gains tax rates while she was Speaker. Yet with Boehner, he does all three in his first two years.

No, they didn't. The Republicans didn't go for anything. They simply rolled over and took it. They voted on a bill they didn't even read that was drafted by Reid, Pelosi, and whoever it is at the White House that does actual work. They passed a bill loaded with pork barrel spending that actually INCREASES the debt. The Republicans folded before the cards were even dealt. And in the next few weeks, you will see them cave on the debt ceiling as well, just like they did 17 months ago.

151 of them held their ground.

The rest took the term "roll call" literally.

Even though I knew this would end in failure as sequestration was a terrible idea as it meant an increase in taxes across the board, stupidly throwing the baby out with the bathwater, I still feel a sense of loss as a citizen.

BOEHNER MUST GO! IT MAY BE TOO LATE TO SAVE THIS COUNTRY BUT IF WE’RE GOING TO TRY HE HAS TO BE FIRED SINCE HE HELPED PUT OUR BACKS AGAINST THE WALL! HE’S NOT JUST INEFFECTIVE, HE’S SABOTAGING ANY EFFORT TO PRESERVE OUR REPUBLIC!

Maybe something good can come from this. Cantor, McCarthy, Hensarling, and Price all went against Boehner and voted ‘NO’.

All along the way, the Constitution has been slowly usurped. I figure the further you go hack towards the ratification of the Constitution, the freer and more alive you feel.

In the event of government collapse, going Galt may truly be possible, though dangerous. What will be left will be truly oppressive but scaled down through lack of revenue.
