    However, if the deficit continues to go upward, then I can see many republicans staying home in 2012

    Quite a few want them to reject it.

    Very clearly, we are the biggest losers here. More benefits for the richest members of society, and more burden on the rest of us.

    You sound like someone who knows little about how the tax code tilts the playing field...

    what burdens? the rich already pay (depending on how you define rich) 40-60% of the federal income tax

    until the vast majority of people face tax hikes to pay for this out of control spending, they will continue to ignore the idiocy of congress.

    that's why the dems want to jack up taxes on the top tax payers-so they can keep buying the votes of the middle and lower classes and lie to them that tax hikes on the rich will pay for them

    Picture the country if right now we removed everyone making 250,000 or more, out of the equation. Let's say we ship them all off to China or somewhere.
    I wonder how many would think that would be a good idea because all we do is give the rich too many benefits or tax breaks anyway.
