Quantcast

Our nation is flat broke. So why are the Democrats STILL trying to fund Planned Parenthood and spend money like there's no tomorrow? Is it sheer stupidity? Or are they really trying to deliberately destroy our country as it seems?

Latest report said:

"But Democrats would not relent on taxes, the aide said.

Republicans have said from the outset that any tax increases will not pass the House. Democrats saw an opening, though, after many Senate Republicans supported a move to repeal a tax break for ethanol last week over the objections of anti-tax activists.

In recent sessions, Democrats had pressed to close a wide range of tax breaks, from oil and gas subsidies to breaks that benefit wealthy individuals.

REPUBLICANS MAY NOT HAVE THE VOTES

Republicans may not have enough votes to pass a deal through the House in any case, as many newly elected conservatives feel little urge to compromise.

That means Boehner may have to rely on Democratic votes, and Democrats will insist that tax increases be part of the deal, one lawmaker said."

    Rather than evil or stupid, it's actually rather sad. Democrats are well meaning, but they are math challenged. Simple, but true.

    It's not like they don't know we're in serious trouble financially so it has to be stupidity, what else could it be.

    It's the commi way. Wed. evening obama was pushing nation building during the bogus withdrawal speech. The nation has been built and it's time to go for this marxist obama......

    I believe it's a little bit of both. Democrats seem to think that no matter how bad things get, there will Always be another revenue source to tax to death. But they honestly don't care what happens to we citizens, just so long as they hold power. It's a "Better to rule in Hell," mentality.

    If Planned Parenthood's funding was cut it would have no real effect on our debt. The problem is that Democrats and Republicans can't agree on where to cut spending and on whether or not to raise taxes.

    If all spending not allowed in the constitution was to be cut however, it would make a difference.
