    You're family finds it's income for the year is $100k, but you're spending $140k, and have $1,500,000.00 in loans and your creditors are knocking at the door. You're wife and several family members get together to reconfigure the financial situation and decide that they'll make you take and extra job increasing the house hold income to $110k and spend only $138k next year.

    Would you agree to this plan?
    most people won't see it this way. They will see that Boehner rejected a deal. Doesnt matter what the deal was, whether it would or wouldn't hurt our current economic position or any other factors. The only thing that people are going to see is that Democrats proposed a plan and Republicans denied it.

    Yes and no. 25 years ago, that would be 100% true. There are enough savvy folks out there that hit more then just one source of news that really lessens that these days, however, I do get your point.
    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.

    what, you mean like Republicans have offered to do on multiple occasions now?

    what will they see about the two plans that Republicans have put forth now (Pat Toomey suggested 700 in cuts and 500 in revenue!) that the Democrats have now rejected?

    They have no understanding at all of the topic. Cpwill doesn't seem to get that he cannot apply an argument that works in 2005 to now.

    Putting him in the same category as Conservative.

    In the campaign for the 2010 elections, the GOP had not yet divulged their plans to cut benefits to seniors to provide more tax cuts for the wealthy. Fortunately, that particular cat is out of the bag now! LOL!
