    ... voters back in the districts that keep sending these naysayers to Congress?

    A substantial number seem to think that less/smaller/no government is a fine thing. And the onliest way you do that is to Just Say "No" to taxes and more spending. What, you lib'ruls trying to make it harder than that? So you can tax and spend on peepul who don't deserve help?

    While I put down "those folks" with poor spelling, lousy grammar and simplistic sloganeering, there are many like them who have thought deeper about the issues and agree with reducing spending and the debt ... before anything else! (That Republicans were complicit, if not directive, in creating our debt crises makes zero difference to the end result today.)

    Not everyone is a Keynesian. But even those who are know in their very marrow that there a lot of costs that can be cut and probably should be before their taxes go up.

    Gleefully watching Boehner swing and drop. Not being unhappy if taxes go up for everyone. Putting voters down. None of that serves the public interest soon enough to make a difference. It isn't that the sky is falling and the lemmings approacheth their doom. It's that the role of government is not well enough regarded in America these days.

    We have a framing job to do.  

    2014 IS COMING. Build up the Senate. Win back the House : 17 seats. Plus!
