    The plan that the Speaker of the house brougt forward was almost verbatim what Barack Obama had suggested be done back in July of 2011 almost word for word, Now he says "the math doesn't work"

    Oh yeah Democrats, the party of the "working people", what a crock! They never learn that when you hurt people who are willing to invest time and money to create jobs, you damage those who are looking for employment.

    They just want to waste more money by arguing. I am fed up with politicians in general. I saw an honest lawyer (that is a rarity), run for office in the 90s. He went broke. Most of them look at a term in office as a free for all.

    It's been their spending that's got us in so much trouble, the fact that Obies been campaigning and now vacationing, Obama's insistence on no credit limits, and taxing the rich more when it will only cover about 8 days of govt. spending. . .

    It's a game people.

    Republican against Democrat....Democrat against Republican.

    And "WE THE PEOPLE" used as pawns. Doesn't matter if the pawns survive as long
    as the Kings and Queens DO.

    Now is the Time People!

    Start Preparing now for 2016.
    We need an independent... A third party so to speak... A "WE THE PEOPLE" party...To defeat the corrupt ONE party we have now! Why do I say ONE party now?

    Just introduce a strong independent for the "People" and watch these Democrats and Republicans now apposing each other suddenly UNITE into ONE to defeat the independent!

    Stop being the losers. Not much time left in the game.

    read any newspaper except for the wall st journal, or any news show, except for fox, or hear any neighbor, except for me, and the fall off the cliff is the republicns fault. well maybe so, but better to let evil play out and pay for it in 2014 than cave in and let obama have his way with fiscal recklessness. tough way to teach america a lesson, but republicans should go down in face of the bigger guns, and rise up to win the real battle.

    The U.S. is worse off than Greece, Why does Greece have to have spending cuts? Just raise taxes... right Obama? If we want high taxes, poverty, and 26% unemployment, then just listen to Obama and the Democrats.

    Greeks earning 42,000 Euros to be taxed at top rate under plan

    ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greeks earning more than €42,000 ($55,000) per year will now be taxed at a new top rate of 42 percent, under a major new tax reform bill submitted to the country's parliament late Thursday.

    Under the new guidelines, the 42 percent top tax rate and earnings threshold replaces the previous level of 45 percent for incomes above €100,000 ($130,770). The new rate is part of a simplification of the country's tax rules. There are currently eight tax bands ranging from 18 percent to 45 percent. These will be replaced by three tax rates: 22 percent, 32 percent and 42 percent.

    But the successive hikes in taxes, required to meet deficit-cutting targets, have hammered the economy, pushing unemployment up to 26 percent, and with more than 20 percent of the population now officially living in poverty — earning less than €7,200 ($9,420) per year.

    They already pay "a bit" more. They pay more than a "bit" more than some who pay nothing, and they pay a lotta "bit" more than some who pay nothing AND get money back. The extra "bit" won't put a dent in the debt. It is just an excuse for Obama to point fingers at Republicans and accuse them of doing what HE is doing. And Obama continues to increase our debt through expansion of food stamps, unemployment and government jobs, while demanding a higher debt ceiling and threatening to raise it unconstitutionally through the magic of his own little dictatorship. ( remember this attack started on "the 1%") This is also a way for the little dictator to get the crowbar in. Once tyranny is accepted, try to stop it from including you in the percentile that needs to be robbed.

    Republicans.
    But then, they KNOW that taxes need to rise. So, if they hold off until the end of the year, they wont need to compromise, the taxes will rise on everyone anyways, without the cuts on the rich that Obama wants.

    In short, the Republicans "win" America loses.
    And their party will still think that the "Pubs fought the good fight, and won.

    They have not come up with any budget cuts. I recon that they want the house of cards to fall. They can't negociate a deal without putting something on the table.
