I have not been on TH in a while...still mourning after the election. Bill O'Reilly is essentially correct...we might have crossed a threshold where we now have too many net takers-- JUST AS THE LEFT HAS INTENDED ALL ALONG! They WANT us to become a European socialist state. Never mind that Greece, Spain, etc., shout out the tragic error in that path. We already have $84 TRILLION in unfunded commitments for S.S. and Medicare alone! So we allow the takeover of H/C and 1/6 of the economy?! Obama can run the guvment for just 8 days(!) via "taxing the rich" as he proposes. Indeed, we DO NOT have a taxing problem-- but we DO HAVE an egregious spending problem!

I cut RINOS no slack either! Dubya spent $ like a drunken sailor 'Crat! I could not stand Nixon either for similar reasons (creating guvment boondoggles).

Dubya created another boondoggle, Rx Care For Seniors, that 90% of them had NO NEED for...and NOBODY even gave him "credit" for yet another spendthrift guvment would-be vote-buyer.

Honestly, our Seniors were, on average, ALREADY getting back $3-4 for every $1 they paid into is an artful ploy that "they are just getting back what they paid in."

Again, the Left conditions voters in Pavlovian fashion to feel "entitled."
America is about to plunge over the so-called fiscal cliff -- and Americans are fighting mad about it. According to the latest polls, 77 percent of Americans believe that the fiscal cliff -- a combination of automatic tax increases and spending cuts set to kick in at the beginning of 2013 -- will hurt them personally. A full 70 percent of Americans want a compromise solution. And 67 percent believe that political leaders will act like "spoiled children."

Most important, though, Americans blame Republicans for the situation. While just 34 percent of Americans blame President Obama for the current fiscal cliff...
