|Happy New Year’s Eve Y’all||Obama’s wrong (again): This ‘cliff’ deal still raises taxes on the middle class|
1$ in fake spending cuts (no real cuts, just accounting trickery) for every $41 in new taxes on Americans. The CBO indicates that the Fiscal Cliff bill has $620 billion in new tax hikes to only $15 billion in (fake) spending cuts, which passed by a vote of 89-8 in the US Senate.
Senate gave middle finger to everyone in America. You want lower taxes & less spending? Tough. You’re getting higher taxes & more spending.

And that’s because the Marxist refuse to retreat on the spending cuts. These Marxist never compromise by reducing the size of government; they simply reduce the rate of growth. And Government continues to grow unabated.
And Boehner and McConnell think this is a good deal?
This is nearly complete capitulation. The GOP is feckless and gutless and we (actual Conservatives) should abandon them immediately and completely and let them die a lonely death.
We have reached the point where temporarily averting self-inflicted disasters at the last second is a political success.

Meanwhile, the White House is openly gloating and mocking Republicans for being such sackless pussies.
Any President who would spin the ridiculous”deal” as a “win” is definitely a man with an ideological agenda, axe to grind.

The Republican Senators voting against the bill were Rubio, Paul, Grassley, Lee, Shelby, and the Democrats were Harkin, Bennet and Carper. Not voting were DeMint, Lautenberg, and Kirk.
Anyway…now we’re waiting on the House to vote to approve this spending bill, which originated in the Senate (to hell with that pesky little document called “the Constitution,” which says it is supposed to happen in the reverse order). Once again, I expect complete capitulation.
And, since it’s Boehner that we’re talking about, tears.
