#1 GOP Possibly Surrendering on Tax Hikes11-25-2012, 12:19 AM
Top Republican senator ditching Norquist anti-tax pledge
A top Republican senator is casting aside an anti-tax pledge he signed, saying that solving the country’s looming fiscal crisis is more important than honoring the decades-old pact.
Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., broke ranks with other conservatives Wednesday when he made the remarks to a local television station. Chambliss is a member of the Gang of Six, a bipartisan group of senators tasked with finding a solution to the country's fiscal woes.
"I care more about my country than I do about a 20-year-old pledge," he told WMAZ-TV. "If we do it his way then we’ll continue in debt, and I just have a disagreement with him about that."
What an embarrassment and an insult to see it in print that this guy is a "Top GOP Senator". Heres a little secret that seems to escape the elite lily livered weasels in DC (aka repuke "leadership") it's not a revenue problem, it's a spending problem!
Liberalism is just communism sold by the drink.

Is there anyone here that doubts the house will cave to Obama, anyone? I new the instant Obama was reelected that the house would fall, that is one of many reasons why I said winning the house was meaningless, we would have caved if we had the senate also, the party is done.
It was either win the presidency or kiss the republic good bye.
By the way , I heard over a million republicans wrote Jesus in on their ballot as a protest vote, someday they will have to explain to him why.The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

When will our congressmen realize the only way out of this hole is to reform spending on BOTH the military and social programs? When will the voters figure this out? The Dems only want to cut spending to the military and the republicans have a collective heart attack hearing about that, while on the other hand, Republican voters (screw our RINO reps right now) want to cut social spending but increase military spending.
For those of you about to say the only reform military spending needs is more money, one word: AAFES. (Don't know what that is, ask a soldier.) The point is, the military bureaucracy is not at all known for wise spending practices. Civilians assume that the five hundred dollar hammer illustration, is just the military not divulging all of what it bought on a given day and saying they spent all their money on a single hammer. Soldiers on the other hand, tend to have no doubt that someone in the bureaucracy found and and made someone buy a hammer for five hundred dollars. ("It's five hundred dollars! I must be a good hammer!"). Soldiers know how to shop, private businesses know how to shop but bureaucracies... no, they have no idea.I wrote a book! Please come read and support it. No, it's not political.
Allah is a god of peace! That's why all his followers want to commit mass murder.

Mark Le-vin was actually clear, concise, and correct about this two days ago. He said on his program that they (Congressmen) cannot truthfully claim that the tax hikes will reduce the deficit or the debt.... because they don't have a budget. Because the money is not officially dedicated to debt reduction, or deficit reduction, and because there is no limit at present to spending, then no one should vote for these tax hikes.
