Turning right with a vengeance, Republicans will bring to the House floor Tuesday a newly revised debt-ceiling bill <span style='font-size: 14pt'>that is remarkable for its total absence of compromise </span>at this late date, two weeks before the threat of default.

Interesting fact.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">But Republican congressional leaders still want a 10-year, $1.8 trillion cut from nondefense appropriations and have added a balanced-budget constitutional amendment that so restricts future tax legislation that even President Ronald Reagan might have opposed it in the 1980s.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Indeed, much of the deficit-reduction legislation signed by Reagan would not qualify under the new tea-party-driven standards.</span> And even the famed Reagan-Tip O’Neill Social Security compromise — which raised payroll taxes — passed the House in 1983 well short of the 290 votes that would be required under the constitutional amendments being promoted by the GOP.

Amazing.

Reagan would have been derided as a RINO, and would have been most unacceptable as a candidate for them.

Mike Huckabee said as much, in close to that exact language.

Any compromise is being blocked by this crazy 'no tax increase under any circumstances' pledge, made to the extreme RW by weak opportunistic Republican freshmen.

Who the hell is a nitwit like Grover Norquist to be dictating to an entire political party????


And how about McConnell!!! Does he really think the country doesn't know the role the Repiglicans played in running up these huge deficits???

Repigs think that if they tell a lie, it isn't a lie, if there is no one right there to call them liars!

This is the most ridiculous, absurd "Do Nothing Congress" in our history!

Repiglicans are only interested in power, regardless of how much they hurt the country in the process.

Sicko's

I still can't believe we had enough stupid people in this country to vote those crooks back into the majority, not that it could ever have happened without the same corrupt, RW Activist Supreme Court, that gave us GW Bush, and pigs like the Koch Brothers!
