    That's the most fucked up part of the deal. The 'supercongress' of 12 that is going to make these decisions. This is government without representation. It had nothing to do with the debt reduction,...

    Her vote wasn't even recorded. In the final vote record she's listed as 'not voting.


    Politicians have never met a victim they wouldn't use to make theater.

    Having Giffords there was cheap exploitative theater.
  4. The myth of Obama's "blunders" and "weakness"

    With the details of the pending debt deal now emerging (and for a very good explanation of the key terms, see this post by former Biden economic adviser Jared Bernstein), a consensus is solidifying...
  5. This is such bullshit. They know they have...

    This is such bullshit. They know they have liberals by the balls. Who else are they going to vote for- the GOP? I mean, the GOP might keep us at war, add new wars, cut spending to important programs...
  6. Democratic politics in a nutshell

    Let's begin by taking note of three facts:

    (1) Three days ago, Democratic Rep. John Conyers, appearing at a meeting of the Out of Poverty caucus, said: "The Republicans -- Speaker...
  7. He did then, but that was more of a 'we'll let...

    He did then, but that was more of a 'we'll let the Bush tax cuts that I signed the extension on end'. It's been off the table for a while now in this clusterfuck- the GOP won't budge. But even if...
  8. I'm not sure where you heard that, but it's not...

    I'm not sure where you heard that, but it's not correct. And I think you mean tax increases, not cuts. Neither the Dems or the GOP are currently proposing tax increases in the debt ceiling/budget...
  9. And if the Democrats cave one final time ...

    Right now, President Obama is vowing to veto the debt ceiling plan that John Boehner hopes to push through the House this evening. And Harry Reid has made it clear that the Boehner proposal, as...
  10. The tea party is not a serious political party,...

    The tea party is not a serious political party, they're just a movement. There's a big difference.
  11. And as long as people think that way nothing will...

    And as long as people think that way nothing will change.

    There are other parties out there besides the GOP and the Dems- and you don't have to write them in, they're actually on the ballot. If...

    Don't worry about the riots. I'm sure the rapture will happen first.
  13. Obama signed the extension on the Bush cuts for 2...

    Obama signed the extension on the Bush cuts for 2 years, so there will be no increases in that area until at 2013, unless congress passes a bill to supersede that. These taxes would cover about 1/4...
  14. Nothing will happen. And when people say the...

    Nothing will happen.

    And when people say the US is heading towards being a third world country it's hyperbole.
  15. They should show them. On every channel, like...

    They should show them. On every channel, like when the President gives a speech. People have a right to know what really happens, and not the bullshit we get in the speeches.

    The sad truth is...
  16. Obama Warns Cantor 'Don't Call My Bluff' As Debt Talks Stall

    Lawmakers and the White House had what nearly every party is describing as a "tough" and "testy" meeting on the debt ceiling Wednesday afternoon, culminating in a stormy exchange between President ...
  17. What a debt ceiling deal could mean for Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security

    No matter what the outlines are for a final agreement to lift the debt ceiling, the deal will include cuts to some of the nation’s major entitlement programs: Medicare, Medicaid and Social...
  18. In response to the front-page stories earlier...

    In response to the front-page stories earlier this week in both The Washington Post and The New York Times reporting that President Obama was advocating cuts to Social Security, Medicare and...
  19. Reports: Pres. Obama pushing for cuts to Social Security, Medicare

    This is at once an extraordinary and completely unsurprising headline:
