Firstly,I would like to thank Daily Kos for giving us the opportunity to share our thougths and extent also my greetings to all the participants for their insights. I am relatively new and as a non US citizen ,not living in the USA,I am always amazed by the attitude of the Republican party. I've tried several times to understand its perspective using different angles and each time I reach a dead end . The stand off surrounding the so called fiscal cliff is the last element that has convinced me to conclude that the Republican Party is the Party of Extremists.
Assume that they don't like the President and people who didn't vote for them but at least they could just think about their own ''electorate '' and pass the bill that will allow a tax cut for 98% and extent unemployment insurance for millions of people.I don't think all their members are millionaires. This is the minimum they could achieve without any hesitation.This should be a No Brainer. What wrong with that?
