Democrats pussy out as Republicans make them swallow.

Two-thirds of Americans say any agreement should include spending cuts and tax increases. Despite this overwhelming support for a compromise that involves both cuts and taxes on the rich, the budget deal calls for no tax increases including letting the Bush era tax cuts for the richest 1% to expire.

Republicans, who had never cared about the debt ceiling, successfully used the issue to bait Democrats into giving up on returning to Clinton era taxes. This brings up the question of whether the Democrats are just spineless idiots, or whether or not they are in cahoots with the Republicans to keep widening the rich-poor gap. Either way, the Democrats have once again sold out their constituents and lessened the difference between the two wings of our one party system.

The only hopes I have is that some other party will challenge the Republicrats or that the people will rise and demand instant run-off elections so that we can vote out of office all those politicians who simply refuse to listen to the people.

What are you talking about Dan? There wasn't any changes, all they did is raise the debt limit with some vague idea to deal with the deficit problem later.





The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should. The conspirators are all around you, smiling to lure you in, carefully choosing their words and watching your reactions as they push your buttons, anxiously waiting for the moment when you sign the papers that will trap you and guarantee their payoff. Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
