Elizabeth Warren talks about taxes, the debt, and how two wars were slapped on a credit card.
Saxby Chambliss is getting a lot of grief from the right-wing fringe, for trying to work out a deal to lower the deficit ceiling. Chambliss should never been a senator in the first place, when he ran a disgraceful campaign against a war vet and an honorable man.
The fringe of the right wing has completely lost it.

House Republican Paul Ryan defends his budget blueprint, medicare overhaul.
In a speech before the Economic Club of Chicago, the Wisconsin Republican maintained, “We cannot avert a debt crisis unless we directly address the rising cost of health.”
Ryan said his plan to overhaul Medicare would “give power to deny business to inefficient providers. [Democrats] plan is to give government the power to deny care to seniors.”
Brave New Films has video about the Koch Brothers, and it kind of pisses you off when hear what the people have to say. It is also sad how the people are scrimping and saving the while the Kochs live in luxury.

Same old tiring story from the Tea Party people, as they held their convention in Phoenix. “We want our country back”. “Smaller government.” “Lower taxes”. Also complaining about people being in office to long. Example: Rep. Joe L. Barton (R) Texas told them how long he has been in office, they were stunned, but when he wrote that he sponsored a bill to repeal the law banning incandescent light bulbs, they cheered him on. It just goes on and on with these people. No real substance to their points of view.

Read and listen to some the Tea baggers in Madison, Wisconsin on what they have to say on the issue that Corporations Shouldn’t Have to Pay Taxes. These people aren’t exactly rocket scientists, and really don’t make much sense at all.
The Republicans got their way in extending the Bush-era tax cuts for the rich, by way of extending the cuts for every worker, for the next two years. The people who are collecting unemployment, which for about two million people, was coming to a close by the end of the month, will get up to a 13 month extension. The only way that happened, was the Republicans forced the President, and the Democrats to cave into giving the wealthiest two percent an additional tax break. So how is this going to create more jobs, when the big corporations are sitting on piles of cash, and don’t want to spend it on job creation, raises, etc., etc. What are people supposed to do?
It would be great, if the Democrats in Washington would grow a pair, and call out on the Republicans for what is good for the people of this country, not their so-called fantasy of everything has to go their way, and for the rich fat cats who could care less for the common man.
