You are exactly right about that and that makes it that much more sickening because if everyone would have gone out and voted barry boy would have been defeated. AND now all of this is just the beginning and a mere taste of things to come. Barry is just that much more arrogant and that much more determined to take this country down.

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...
