A Debt Ceiling Fold Imminent? Probably.

I have this sinking (but totally expected) feeling that Republicans are about to sell out us and the nation yet again. Before we get to that, though, let’s begin with some good old fashioned class warfare rhetoric from a true artist: "If we do not have revenues, that means there are a bunch of kids [...]

If This Is The “Deal,” I Have two Words: Bite Me

Budget negotiations are reportedly closing in on a deal to cut the federal deficit and then raise the debt ceiling. Bloomberg focuses on a big number and then, later, tells you that the cuts will happen over ten years. In other words, the dealmakers are going to cut a few hundred $Billion per year from [...]

Republicans Shouldn’t Take Tea Party for Granted

Here's an interesting story from Of course, "anonymous sources" are always suspect, but this is extremely troubling if there's a sliver of truth in here.

We’re in BIG trouble … which we already knew

As you probably know by now, our own Eric Cantor couldn’t muster the will to cut the full $100 billion from the budget he and other Republicans promised during the 2010 campaign. While this is disappointing, it’s certainly not unexpected and highlights just how much work we have left to do. Because even if he [...]

Krauthammer unimpressed with tax compromise

Here’s the always-insightful Charles Krauthammer slamming Republicans for helping pass Obama’s tax deal last night: Remember the question after Election Day: Can Obama move to the center to win back the independents who had abandoned the party in November? And if so, how long would it take? Answer: Five weeks. An indoor record, although an asterisk should [...]
