    I'm going to blame the Republicans, period. Forever and always. The Party of No.

    GE doesn't pay income taxes? Do you have any clue about corporate tax issues?

    Oh what a surprise that statement is ... I can't recall seeing a post where you didn't blame Republicans

    They aren't the party of no ... why I remember when the democrats voted to extend the tax cuts ... the republicans agreed with them ..

    They showed up with deep cuts, $3 for every $1 they were asking so actually? In this instance? No. I do not blame them.

    That does not render them blameless. I'm talking about this specific issue we've been dealing with for the past many weeks.

    And after the elections and before the temp debt ceiling raise Republicans wanted over 2 trillion in cuts. What happened then?

My guess: It would be less than 24 hours into such a standoff before the Republicans caved.
    You noted that I did figure out how to eliminate 43% of the spending, as you asked - right?
