Republican Civil War
The last time the "fiscal cliff" leaped to our attention, President Obama wanted to use Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid to induce the Republican Party to compromise. A Democrat, actually wanted to cut what is left of the social safety net. All in an effort to get a party that will not negotiate, to agree to Obama's "Grand Bargain". I do not have much faith that the President will not do this again.
President Obama does not have to agree to anything Boehner or McConnell suggest.
291 times and neither Boehner or McConnell cried about it. They didn't cry about the deficit either. Both of these scumbags have no problem with the supposed end of the world apocolypse of "the fiscal cliff". This supposed fiscal fiasco is due to the GOP catering to the wealthy and corporations who are sitting on billions of offshore money that is not taxed. Then there are the Bush tax cuts that favor the 1%.
The only thing that the GOP WILL do, is create a way for the middle class to pay more taxes, while privatizing Social Security, the banks can't wait to get their greedy hands on it. If anything like this happens, then we will know who President Obama is really working for.
It seems to me, the only thing that the GOP could agree on was getting rid of President Obama, they failed, at a cost to the American people when they could have accomplished something during an economic crises. Why in the world do these twits keep getting elected?
There is a lot of speculation that there is some kind of internal Republican civil war going on, since they had such an epic fail this past election. I don't care about that, they deserve to implode. What concerns me the most is the outright rebellion and traitorous behavior to this country these two men preside over. It is not going to end just because the American people spoke. The only thing they care about is money and the next election.
Lets see if President Obama will do the right thing and stop compromising with people who do not put our country first, who would see it destroyed, rather than allow the President to have any success moving this country forward. I am afraid, with McConnell and Boehner in office there will be little chance of that happening.
