  •  Time for the GOP to step up (12+ / 0-)

    They complain constantly about spending and entitlements.  If they see a problem then they need to get serious about proposing solutions.  There is no way Obama should bail them out.  If they want cuts, let them name the cuts they want and negotiate.

    The idea that Obama should propose one plan after another until the GOP goes along is nonsense.  Time for Graham and his pals to put up or shut up.

    •  The GOP needs to put their cards on the table (8+ / 0-)

      regarding tax revenues. And they need to be very SPECIFIC! And that must include a tax increase on the top 2% and name specifically what tax loopholes they are willing to put on the table. And the subsidies that we give to Big Oil should be up for negotiation given their record breaking profits year after year after year.

      They are not going to do this. They think they're going to drag this out as long as they have and the closer we get to next Friday they figure we'll cave. This is an abyssmal strategy not to mention a losing one. And the notion that we need to make some sort of concession that allows these obstructionists, who have already caused more than enough damage, to save face? Fuck that shit. Awww they got hurt fee fees? Grow the fuck up, if you can't stand the heat, get the hell out of the kitchen.

      Off the curb we go!
