Obama agreed to spending cuts if he could raise taxes.  Congress rose taxes but now Obama wants more taxes before giving in to spending cuts if he gives in at all. You cant tax your way out of this problem and you cant continue to spend like their isnt a problem.

It's a feature not a bug. Got to keep those wages low.

Does that number include the 232 Republican members of the US House of Representatives? Even though the number is comparatively small, it's not inconsequential. Traitors never are.

When the GOPers kept saying "Jobs, jobs, jobs" all through the 2010 election, I don't think the voters understood that they meant to cut jobs, jobs, jobs.

Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice -- you can't get fooled again.

The bigger question is:

Who will they vote for in 2014?

The net effect to the  movers and shakers. They'll use the downfall in 2014 to get into office. It worked in 2010 right?

@shepherdwong You have to remember, teabaggers need for us to lose jobs so they can win the next election. And if you disagree, well, you hate america.

@Ohiolib  Create, shmeate.  We're talking about losing jobs.  The GOPers are great at job losses.

I know.  Ours has a single large moon orbiting about 235,000 miles away - 2160 miles in diameter.  We orbit a single G5v star about 4.57 Ga in the Orion Arm of the MIlkey Way galaxy.

Yours must be in the next Universe over.  Kinda slummy over there...
