The house controls the money..as Pistol said earlier," he who has the gold makes the rules". I wrote to Eric Cantor just this morning and Bohner last week...shut off the money and starve everything this commie obama is pushing and to hell with PC and the threat of riots from his "base". I hear about cuts to almost everything except WELFARE, this albatross around our necks costs one trillion a year and this commieclown spent another trillion in 2011 on foodstamps alone...Had he developed an energy plan like McCain/Palin/ and later Romney/Ryan advocated we'd have millions working and no need for any of it. The man isn't stupid, it's deliberate.

At this stage of the fiscal cliff pseudo negotiations, do the American people have any idea what the Republicans stand for other than to protect the wealthy and cut Medicare and Social Security to harm the sick and aged?

People constantly invoke Ronald Reagan, but one thing is certain and very relevant: If Reagan were on the national stage today, the public would not be confused about what the Republican Party stands for and why it matters.

The GOP is having difficulty even consolidating around a central message, much less selling it to the public. There is no excuse for that.
