America is a land of taxation that was founded to avoid taxation. — Laurence J. Peter
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.”
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.
