The Republican party has become nothing more than a joke. Before the election of Reagan, the Republican party really cared about America. The Republican party of today, however, is nothing more than a shell of its predecessor. While engaging in right-wing fascism, the Republicans have decided to scr3w over middle and lower class Americans in order to cater to big businesses and the ultra wealthy. In addition, they continue to want to implement economic policies to do not work, and will never work! The current Republican party will NEVER have America's best interests in mind.

House Speaker John Boehner presented two options to his members today—to make an amendment that would add a package of spending cuts to the bill, an extremely risky move, or vote to adopt the deal and send it along to President Obama. After determining there wasn’t enough support to amend the legislation, which passed 89-8 in the Senate, the House is moving forward with an up-or-down vote tonight.

The decision to move ahead with the Senate bill — which allows tax rates to jump to 39.6 percent on income over $450,000 — came after House Republicans internally...
