This is typical beltway talk, we all should give in and let the bad guys have their way again. It is time to pull the plug on these theives in D.C.. They are out of touch with reality and what is going good for the country. Everythig they do is based on their own benefit. Boehner is a joke he caves everytime and never solves the problem. He has the power it is called the purse. It is a mighty power to own. The R's lost because they were more afraid of the teaparty then the dems and fought against the wrong enemy who was working for them. That should tell you something.

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....
