Democrats are Not caving on their principles it is always the Republicans! What it shows is that Republicans much mor epower hungry than Dems & do not care about principles.
The only solution for saving this country is to start a 3rd party ....Tea Partyers, Conservatives & Libertarians to have a common program. Voting for republicans is a wasted vote ..it is time to unite & have a 3rd party focused on solving the fiscal problems of the country!
I hope Conservatives & Tea Partyers who voted for Republicans learnt their lesson! The bitter Truth is that Liberals are much more principled than weak spined Republicans - check the record! They are Not afraid to say NO to the President & stood thier ground!
