    Disgusting is the President threatening old folks to get his way.
    it's actually disgusting that republicans are completely unwilling to compromise. trust me, people see this. even some republicans see this.

    if this comes to pass, and social security checks don't go out, let us see how fast republicans are bounced out of office on their collective ass in 2012.

    So are Democrats.
    But, that's OK - right?

    See what? That the GOP admits we cannot afford this spending, and enabling MORE is just putting a temporary bandage on a problem that IS NOT GOING TO GO AWAY.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Bribing people for votes is the Democrat way.

    a deal had been put up by dems which came down to 3 dollars in cuts, for every 1 dollar in increased taxes...pretty sweet deal you ask me, getting 3 for 1.

    Yeah, they've offered those before, amazingly the 3 dollars in cuts never, ever materialize.

    In 1982, President Reagan agreed to the same deal being offered the party today: three dollars in spending cuts for every dollar in tax increases to which he assented. As he ruefully told this writer more than once, he was lied to. He got one dollar in spending cuts for every three in tax increases.

    The Democrats are completely unwilling to comprimise on their demand that taxes be increased and certain entilement programs not be cut.
    Either the complete unwillingness to comprimise is "disgusting", or it isn't.

    It's disgusting, but it's also tit-for-tat and what the country needs right now.

    Treatises can't be replacements for arguments on a debate forum; that's too much information to answer in a single post.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    the democrats were willing to work with speaker boehner and republicans on 4 TRILLION DOLLAR DEAL...the dems have bent over backwards trying to get republicans onboard, the repubs are more interested in protecting the rich, than working on a deal that benefits the country as a whole.
