"Gutless politicians on both sides have brought us to this point." The "535" are completely responsible for the mishandling and misleading of the taxpayer and the monies this corrupt group have extorted. Extortion is a crime, but these jokers have made a sham of the protections written in our Constitution It is past time to bring the heat down of the "clowns" or should we say thieves
I read that Senator Mitch McConnell burst into laughter upon hearing Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner lay out President Obama's "Fiscal Cliff" plan. Here's the rub:

> $1.6 trillion in revenue
> $50.0 billion stimulus
> $400.0 billion in Medicare cuts

Unlike Susan Rice, who was sent in to fall on the administration's sword during the Benghazi cover up, Geithner isn't looking for his next government job. It makes him the perfect foil. He can actually go in with a straight face with a proposal so absurd that an old reserved guy like McConnell doubles over in hysterical disbelief. Some say this is how you begin...
