The same congressional retrograde obstructionists who said their main job was to make sure Obama did not get a second term are now whining that the Obama economic and tax plan to get past the "Fiscal Cliff" they caused s an insult to these wee babies with immense egos.
Reality bites. Their obstructionist plan to deny Obama a second term failed. But they are still acting as if nothing happened. They are still acting as if their economic mythology and zombie economics can solve the Fiscal Cliff..which should be more appropriately called the "GOP Quagmire". They are in a dreamworld bubble still not recognizing that most of the American people are aware that the GOP blather is unworkable nonsense.
These same GOP know-nothings think a compromise is Obama swallowing a poison pill and just can't understand why neither he nor the American people are swallowing it with gusto. They talk sweetly generally about compromise, and then propose completely uncompromising unworkable specific positions. Congress has the budget authority in the US Constitution, but they are still expecting Obama to make the job easy for them to be ignorant, stupid, and spoiled..
It is time the GOP did some heavy lifting and pulled their heads out of their asses. Most Americans don't give a tinker's damn about the rich getting taxed more. They know it is both fair and necessary. Even some of the very rich with an actual conscience and sense of national responsibility are ahead of the GOP retrogrades.
Let them chew on this "compromise" for awhile. Let us end the cuts in the employment taxes for all, but also extend them to all income and with no limit on the income subject to the SS and Medicare-Medicaid taxes. Then let's end the Bush tax cuts for those with income over $250,000. Republicans should pay Grover Norquist to take a long vacation nearer to Mitt Romney's out-of-US accounts and tax dodges. Let's put in a federal distant transaction tax that provides a uniform sales tax for transactions such as those with the internet, but which revenue generated is returned 90% to the states on the basis of their population.
It is shameful and something bordering on treason for Congresss Critters to pledge fealty to a scoundrel like Grover Norquist at the expense of all rationality and reason. They generate doubt and uncertainty regarding the US economy and then blame that on Obama. They are escaptist and euphimism experts. It is time the took responsibility for their own ignorance and obstruction and actually helped get the US back on the right track instead of cheering for collapse they can blame on Obama and Democrats.
Democrats need to bite the bullet on welfare. It is time for Democrats to say that aid to children is limited to one per woman. Birth control and abortions should be required to prevent the second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth children all on welfare. There isn't even something the equivalent of three strikes and your out. But, it is time for "one pregnancy and you are out.".
Both Republicans and Democrats are responsible for the flood of illegal aliens. The Democrats want their votes and the Republicans want their Chinese-cheap labor. It is time they got the 12 million or so of them out of the country or provided funding for English language instruction and instruction on civics, citizen rights and responsibilities in a country that doesn't run on Billion of dollars of bribes that also slash an economy.
The federal government tolerating an invasion of millions of illegal aliens is a huge unfunded mandate on local and state governments charged with education and health care. It is time for the feds to payup to the states, or get rid of the illegal aliens.
