    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?

    HA, and a family member said the “republicans” would vote against it and hold the country hostage. Any one who gave this a “yes” vote, Republican OR Democrat should not be reelected!

    Just what we all need for New Years, King O’s smirking mug in a suit on television to preen and gloat yet again while the media slobber all over him!

    IDIOTS IDIOTS, O played you all for fools. I wouldn’t trust any of these TOOLS with my time OR money!

    Brush up on your MADARIN aholes, the Chinese are gonna suck you dry!

    This is beyond pathetic..it’s simply disgusting.

  • Oliver

    Idiots on the Right, commies on the left.
    Time to head for The Gulch.

    Don’t Boehner and McConnell ever talk? They led the GOP into a box canyon where it is all lose-lose. The deal stinks and yet there are GOP fingerprints all over it AND to top it off…OVomit and the press will still castigate the GOP because the majority voted against it.

    Stupid to the end.

    Time for a 3rd party. Things cannot get worse.

  • Jack

    Ryan voted for every big government thing Bush wanted so I’m not surprised but I am dissappointed. Why no talk of 3rd party? The repubics are stuck on stupid and always will be.

  • Oliver

    #12 PD Quig Libertarian is only true party of small government. Too bad Evangelicals will never make that leap.

    This is a fantastic movie that explains the infiltration of Socialism into our country:

    The majority of dems and many elected Reputlicans are just useful idiots in the big picture agenda.

  • Big Al

    Amazing that the republicans gave up everything without a dime of spending cuts….cuts which will now never happen. What a disgrace. Now the gloating and victory lap from HRH.

  • Red

    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.

  • Sasja

    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.

  • Mad Hatter

    It looks like 2014 will be the year of the Primary.

    It’s time to clean out the fake Conservatives once and for all.
