Obviously, Boehner and McConnell went to bed election night before the results came in.
SUPPLY SIDE ECONOMICS has never worked....their basic premise to reward the wealthy before creating BUYER DEMAND is flawed and the same GOP lie they've had on Fox for 4 years or more. Companies don't hire people until people can afford their goods. The middle class won't buy goods when the health care industry is keeping them broke, and big corporations have already sent most of the good middle class jobs overseas.
Have you read where in Greece, there's widespread fraud by the wealthy to avoid paying their taxes? WIDESPREAD.
The Tea Party folks have just GOT to quit watching Fox News. They're only trying to keep their audience that they've been lying to. And what are they doing? Lying some more. Using the same phony pundits who were so wrong!
Tax increases on the wealthy back to where they were before Bush is all that will save the budget from the Fiscal Cliff facing us. Austerity will just do what it's done in Europe. Bankrupted them. This isn't rocket science folks. Quit watching Fox, listening to Rush, and reading the WashingtonTimes.
Boehner-Cantor-McConnell: Expect the Same Games from the GOP in Congress
The GOP was willing to agree with “new revenue under the right conditions,” Boehner said. Yeah whatever. Nevermind that Congressional Republicans continue to pretend, as if to be plunged into some sort of alternative fantasy-scape, that it was President Obama who invented the sequester singlehandedly after the debt ceiling fiasco.
Here is what you can expect from congressional Republicans over the next two years: Nothing. If anyone expects this group to suddenly metamorphosize into a different group of people forget it. If ever the words “I’ll believe it when I see it” were appropriate, this would be it.

KS: Brownback shuns ObamaCare
By Gene Meyer | Kansas Reporter
FAIRWAY – Kansas will continue to resist the federal imposition of ObamaCare, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback said Thursday.
“Kansans feel Obamacare is an overreach by Washington and have rejected the state’s participation in this federal program,” Brownback said in a statement.
“ My administration will not partner with the federal government to create a state-federal partnership insurance exchange because we will not benefit from it and implementing it could cost Kansas taxpayers millions of dollars,” he said.
The partnership to which Brownback refers is an offer allowing states that aren’t building their own insurance exchanges to share in the operation of a federal version.
Radioman sez: No problem....let the feds run heath care reimbursement instead of the states. Brownback, you're such a shortsighted moron! It will be called "Medicare for All".
And another thing or two....
- Radioman KansaSitty Yup, time for Obama to quit being nice guy and call these Retroactive and wealthy-shilling, Fox watching asses what they are. Shills for the rich who export jobs and their profits overseas. That's why America send them to the dumpster.
The sooner Fox and the Supply Siders reconsider their positions, the sooner we can get on with fixing our country, getting folks back to work. They are on the tail end of their careers and haven't seen the new America. The old one won't be coming back.
The secret to American prosperity isn't the WEALTHY which HORDES their money; it's the MIDDLE CLASS who buy stuff to create more jobs to make even MORE.
Lets fix the deficit, It will hurt. Don't build ships and jet fighters we dont need. Cut back on wasteful medical procedures that don't make us cured. And let us buy our drugs from cheaper Canada... so the drug companies can't gouge us with federal protections.
And penalize US corporations for making consumer goods in China for $2 an hour.
And return America's wealth back to the middle class where it was. Republican Congressmen hopefully will realize that shilling for the wealthy to get campaign money is no guarantee to keep your job! They failed HORRIBLY this week!
Maybe they should go back and read a little Ronald Reagan....who definitely would NOT be part of this nutcase political party the GOP has become!
Don't be scared of the Tea Partiers....they're all going on Medicare! They don't really give a shit anymore. And I'm sure millions of them feel like they've been HAD. Which they HAVE.
