The entitled, welfare, medicare, ss receivers etc., recipients want to tax the 'rich' and those that are being asked to pick up the bill want to cut spending. Since when did we evolve to a government where taking 50% of a persons dollar was not enough as we have come to in California today when Federal and State taxes are assessed based on Brown's proposition and Obama's offer?.

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....
