Top GOP Senator: “I Believe the President Is Eager to Go Over the Cliff for Political Purposes” (Video)

Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) was on FOX News Sunday this morning with Chris Wallace. Barrasso believes Barack Obama is eager to go over the fiscal cliff:

“I believe we are (going over the fiscal cliff). And I believe the president is eager to go over the cliff for political purposes. He senses a victory at the bottom of the cliff. I think it hurts our country and hurts our economy.”

Of course he does.

    What would the president be doing differently if he were trying to bring down this country? We all assume he’s just naive or incompetent. I don’t believe that for a second. He’s trying to destroy us and here we sit, letting him.

    Going over the cliff may not go according to Obama’s plan, which is the truly scary part. In the not too distant future the bond market may not be so accommodating to political bluster at the expense of economic sanity. Obama campaigned four years ago on bringing CHANGE. If the bond market finally snaps, and I believe it is only a matter of time before it does, America will finally experience REAL CHANGE. Just wait and see what happens to your precious standard of living.

    Obama knows he needs taxes to go up on everyone to fund his expanding spending. The Republicans should pass an extension to the bottom 4 tax brackets and let sequestration take place. It is the best deal they can get.

    Spending is going up regardless and and agreement with Obama will cut less than sequestration. Also, the rich people voted for Obama and funded his campaign. Give them what they voted for.

    # 6 The Jews designed the Gateway Arch, the chief engineer was Jewish, most of the people who left for the West were Jewish of course …the Jews developed the Fargo Forum No Dakota and the Minot Daily (Jewish) News/NoDakota.SARC/ON. Da’ Jews also invented Chicklets (only for twins), Jolly Ranchers (only for idiots like you # 6) Moreover Jews met Neal Armstrong when he landed on the, was it A.J. Cervantes the Honorable Mayor of St. Louis when the Arch was completed? Jews are among the most dedicated hard working people I’ve ever been priveleged to work with…honest, ethical..and besides a small # in Hollwood and to a lesser extent Wall Street, they ARE AMERICANS and REALLY GOOD PEOPLE

    The good Senator is right. The Fiscal Cliff is nothing but another Obama con game. Obama wants taxes to go up on EVERYONE including the middle class that Obama claims to champion.
    This was Obama’s plan all along, to pretend he’s working with the Republicans for a solution, when it’s all another Obama charade. Then when we go over the cliff, Obama and ilk will blame the Republicans, when the real people that stuck it to us are Obama and Democrats.

    Kenya Boy is eager to take America over the fiscal cliff, all right, but it has nothing to do with the 2014 elections.

    IF the Democrats do push for tax cuts, the Republican plan should be a return to the Reagan rates that were PROVEN to work in the 80′s!

    Great! Then the top rate will be increased to 50%, where it was for most of Reagan’s time in office.
