But, according to the media, it’s all because Republicans wouldn’t raise taxes on the rich.
That’s a simple meme for the media that serves their interests (selling idiots to adertisers).
Best we’ll get out of this is the realization by the brighter voters that welfare comes at a cost. And we’ll only get that if the Republicans play this perfectly: howls from the R Senators over the military cuts, and wailing over “our hands are tied- the Dems insist on no other cuts” from the House Rs.
Heh heh. The Republicans caved in on that. The taxes on the rich have been raised to Mr. Obama's satisfaction. That worn-out old one-trick pony won't jump through the hoops any more.
