    So what happens when none of this that was passed today actually prevents us from going over the fiscal cliff? This has done nothing but raise taxes and actually increase deficit spending.

    This is insane and a sad day for this country. Good God is this what we have to look forward to for the next 4 years?

  • Freddy

    Paul Ryan voted aye.

    – end of a career as a conservative

  • And some of you wanted Ryan for the new Speaker?

  • LIARS they are all filthy liars. Paul Ryan voted yes. Wow. Don’t I feel like a stupid dope… I bought into the hype that he was some sort of numbers guru and was ‘conservative’.

  • Oliver

    Is it just me or does it feel a lot like Nov 6 again?

    The GOP needs a new Speaker and frankly, every Republican who votes “aye” needs to be primary challenged in 2014. I am sick and tired of these sans balls GOP politicians. At this point I would rather go down with a Rep. that I knew supported my beliefs. I expect a Democrat to vote for this BS. When a Republican does, what is the difference between the two parties?

    I can no longer support establishment Republicans and no longer will. They are too guttless.

  • Oliver

    Obama is on the tube right now spewing more lies about how 98% of Americans won’t see a tax increase. Problem is CBO just said 77% of all Americans will see their taxes go up under this deal.

    Gotta’ wonder how he can keep a straight face when he spews this garbage.

    This is just one more nail in our Republic’s coffin but I will not stop fighting for her until the day I draw my last breath. I owe it to those who have sacrificed so much to protect our freedoms and I will not quit. But I tell you, it just seems daunting most times.

    The bill is anti-marriage; $400,000 income for a single or $450,000 for a married couple.

    So, a married couple could earn an extra $350,000 if they legally split up.

    Plus, it did not originate in the House but instead was passed by “a bunch of sleep-deprived octogenarians on New Year’s Eve” in the Senate.

    unless the Tea Party initiates massive Civil Disobedience, it is impotent.
    I don’t believe the Tea Party is courageous enough for that next step up.

    I recall at many Tea Party rallies several speakers would say,
    “Look behind you……there’s nobody there” referring to battle lines.
    Well, the ‘ramparts’ were breached long ago.

    Oh well–idiot GOP should have just walked away and not been any part of a tax increase but as is now common with most of them, they gave in. The dictator will probably gloat and say how bi-partisan this all is now–good work GOP. All GOP pols who have now given the dictator shelter should just change parties–become blue dog dems(no better than a regular dem but pretend to be.) How is Ryan going to explain this? Agree with Ghost–let them have the big govt, rino/dem country they want and we’ll take a constitution based one.

    #24 … Whatever it takes.

    The Establishment GOP does not have the guts to primary challenge those principled Republicans who voted nay and are actually voting with the Republican base. I dare them.

    Enough is enough. The only reason why the GOP, Boehner, Ryan, etc are in power is because the Tea Party made the GOP the majority in 2010. Ever since then the GOP establishment has acted as if they are the ones that did it all. They benefited from “We the People”.

    What was given can easily be taken away. The GOP is providing no reason to actually vote for them anymore. They were elected to stop Obama and Democrats, not vote with them and raise taxes. Obama already had an ego, now the actions of the GOP leadership has merely made them his “biotch”.

    We have not even got to Obama’s second term yet. God I hope I recognize my country in 4 years.

    According to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, the measure would increase the national debt by $4 trillion over the next decade than if all of the tax hikes and scheduled automatic spending cuts had been allowed to kick in.

    Five Senate Republicans also rejected the measure, including tea party favorites Rand Paul (Ky.), Mike Lee (Utah) and Marco Rubio (Fla.), a potential contender for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. But 40 others voted for it, including such GOP leaders on tax-and-spending policy as Sen. Patrick J. Toomey (Pa.) and Ronald H. Johnson (Wis.), a tea party star who frequently consults with conservatives in the House.

    Time for a third-party movement. The Republican Party is too entrenched to be changed en masse by “purging” the party. We need a clear alternative with a distinctive voice. A true conservative party will lose many battles in the early stages of organization, but will win the war in the long-run. Many Tea Party members were right; they would rather see Obama as president than to be betrayed yet again by RINOs like Romney and Ryan. What is Ryan’s excuse for his “yes” vote tonight? What is Ryan’s excuse for all the “yes” votes for George Bush’s massive expansion of government spending? These RINOs play conservatives for fools because they know they can. Time to stop taking it and bring the fight to them by voting them out of office. Conservatives can win, but it will take discipline, organization, and “get out the vote” efforts. My heart bleeds to see America die by a thousand cuts.

  • What a hoax the Romney-Ryan ticket was. As big a hoax as bin Obama-Biden.

    ‘… Although America ’s economic crisis is not rocket science, the media and politicians have done a good job of keeping the truth hidden so that our focus isn’t on the real problem. After all, if we, the people, understood the real problem, we would demand that they fix it and we are smart enough to know the real fix that’s needed.

    To prevent this from happening, politicians and media conjured up this catchy phrase called “the fiscal cliff.” Then they established a narrative that gave us a false target to blame – the so-called “rich.”

    In other words, keeping the people’s attention on class warfare directs our anger and rhetoric onto the false target they’ve fed us and off of ‘what’ and ‘who’ created the problem in the first place. This distracts us from formulating and voicing the real solution to the true problem.

    So, what is the real problem that created this crisis?

    In a nut shell, our elected politicians have continued to spend trillions more in the past four years than taxpayers have given them. Thus, they have brought America ’s economy to the point of near collapse. It’s that simple.

    Three of the broader consequences of what they’ve done are:

    For the first time in the history of our nation, America ’s credit rating has been downgraded – twice.

    Our national debt now exceeds its yearly gross domestic product (GDP).

    The value of the dollar continues to decline, which makes prices rise on the things we need and want (i.e. inflation).’…

    Rightdawg, I think we have to face the fact that we’re dealing with a fundamentally flawed political system now. The staggering flow of tax money has corrupted everything and everyone in it’s path, and all efforts to restore this republic to fiscal sanity will be met with overwhelming opposition. Despite all the founder’s warnings and safeguards, greed and the lust for power have persevered, and the Great Experiment is now officially a failure. Through apathy and laziness, we’ve allowed our politicians to circumvent the system of checks and balances and render the Constitution, which was supposed to be the backbone of our society, irrelevant. Now, only a miracle can save this country from falling victim to the evils of human nature. I really don’t know how much more time we have now, but all I can say is that I’m glad I don’t have any children ….

  • Think Third World.

    ‘… In the US, phony economic crises struck with increased urgency, one after the other, finally leading to the largest of all, the so-called Fiscal Cliff. The Cliff will be resolved, of course, leading to a round of self-congratulation covered by the bought-and-paid-for mainstream press.

    And then, promptly, there will be another crisis. The United States is being brought down with one phony crisis after another. The idea apparently is to place the US in a position where it can merge economically with countries like Mexico and Brazil. In order for this to happen, the US economy has to be reduced, and that is well underway.’…

    So this deal alone will add $1.6 trillion to the Obamee debt by 2016 and a lot more by 2022.

    We’ll go from $10 trillion to $20 trillion plus in 8 years. Massive, permanent cuts in our credit rating, interest rates approaching the bad old days of the Carter years, followed by hyper-inflation. This is now assured in the next decade unless Republicans balance the budget with immediate spending cuts in the next Congress.

    Republicans usually cave for the Dems when the Dems hold the WH and a majority in the House and/or Senate.

    Democrats usually do the same when the Republicans hold the WH and a majority in the House and/or Senate.

    This has been the “norm” for many years now.

    Politicians from either party will, almost always, sell their voter base out whenever they’re in the “minority” position described above.

    Like I’ve said before, 90% of the time the end result is increased power and higher taxes for the government, and a loss of money and power for most of those who aren’t on public assistance and/or the public sector payroll.

    This, and the insatiable craving for power and wealth that infects most politicians makes it difficult and/or impossible for them to do what’s right for the majority of us who aren’t on the public assistance/sector payroll.

    Meanwhile, this Hollywood style “cliff-hanger” of a “cliff deal” followed what was (most likely) a very carefully planned script from the beginning.

    The question now is; how much longer are non-public assistance/sector funded people going to fall for these Dem/Rep-Rep/Dem staged dramas?

    You fools will not WAKE UP! Repugnants and Kleptocrats are one.. The only way to restore the Republic is to remove both of these tools and replace them with non main stream candidates.. Ones who will actually restore the Consitiution to its full glory! You fools however will cling to the “I’m a Republican” foolishness while you watch Rome burn..
