Are Republicans stupid, evil, or both in some weird, totally self-unaware fashion? The GOP says that it and its adherents are the Real Americans who care deeply about this nation, unlike those "evil, Marxist-loving, liberal, globalist Dems". If they love this country so much, why then are they so willing to destroy the economy simply in an effort to take control of the government?Is GOP trying to sabotage economy to hurt Obama?
WASHINGTON (AP) — Are Republican lawmakers deliberately stalling the economic recovery to hurt President Barack Obama's re-election chances? Some top Democrats say yes, pointing to GOP stances on the debt limit and other issues that they claim are causing unnecessary economic anxiety and retarding growth.
The latest Democratic complaint came after House Speaker John Boehner said Tuesday that when Congress raises the nation's borrowing cap in early 2013, he will again insist on big spending cuts to offset the increase. Boehner, R-Ohio, continues to reject higher tax rates, which Democrats demand from the wealthy.
