Just MC said.... BTW, it should be obvious by now that Republican policies and Democratic policies BOTH are largely parasitic. The GOP talks like it wants small government, but precious few members actually VOTE that way. ______ That is because there are far too many progressive humanists on both sides of the aisle. Both believe that government can answer all the ills that plague humankind. Progressive republicants believe that more regulation of what we do & how we do it with scarcely a nod to the Constitution. Progressive demoncraps feel that the government can fix anything but taking the money of the "rich" & using it to "help" the poor. Since there are always more "poor" than there are rich then the "rich" must pay their fair share.

Amy, we've been had by all. I'm very tired of all the games being played, and I agree with Ann, let the progs have their way, but loudly advertise the action.
It's not easy, being an old woman soon leaving this world, to think this is the inheritance I am leaving my children.

Weedwam, I hope this means you've always opposed Entitlements and their escalating cost.

Because that's what's destroying us.

One bright spot of Barack Obama's re-election was knowing that unemployment rates were about to soar for the precise groups that voted for him -- young people, unskilled workers and single women with degrees in gender studies. But now the Democrats are sullying my silver lining by forcing Republicans to block an utterly pointless tax-raising scheme in order to blame the coming economic Armageddon on them.

Democrats are proposing to reinstate the Bush tax cuts for everyone ... except "the rich." (Why do only tax cuts come with an expiration date? Why not tax increases? Why not...
