I think both Bluebonnet and erick24 have said it all and said all rather well. My worst fear is the debt that will belabor our children and the demoralization of our men and women who serve us in the military. I have said it before and I will say it again....I am old enough to have seen our country go through many ups and downs...BUT never the likes of this...and never have I had such little faith in Washington and fear for the future of our country. Our issues have been coming for quite some time but, by god, Obama and his henchmen have all but destroyed or will destroy our Constiution and our land.

When you lose an election, you get frustrated. When you're sitting in a subpar 2 percent economy, and are faced with tax hikes rather than marginal rate reductions, you get even more frustrated. And when you're staring at $47 trillion in spending over the next 10 years, and $8.6 trillion in deficits, your frustration levels climb even higher.

These are among the frustrations that led a number of House Republicans to pull back from Speaker John Boehner's so-called Plan B. Nobody looked good on the Republican side when Thursday night's vote fell through. But you have to understand their frustrations....
