    The Senate Republicans caved. Now what? The House Republicans will also cave.

    Republican leaders are sayin, "Save your battle for the coming borrowing limit battle." What will happen then is that Geithner will say, "Extend it, or I will put more IOUs into the SS trust fund, and then into the Federal retirement trust fund."

    We saw in WI and MI how the unions hire people to carry protest signs even if they didn't know what the protest was about.

    president hussein signed an EO which gave members of the House and Senate and himself pay raises, but not the military. The Republicans ostensibly voted to not raise taxes on the great unwashed, half of which DON'T PAY TAXES ANYWAY! I'm no longer going to file Federal tax returns

    I sure hope all who sat out this Presidential election because they didn't like Romney rot in hell.

    Unfortunately, there isn't much that the Republicans can do. Obama holds all the cards this time. If the Republicans don't agree to a limited tax hike, then sequestration kicks in and we get a general tax hike, plus catastrophic defense cuts. The cuts to other agencies will not be implemented due to the way that baseline budgeting works, so sequestration works out to a Democratic bucket list. And, with the media presenting this as Republican intransigence, they will take the blame while Obama reaps the benefits. The best thing to do is give in, while publicly stating that while Republicans oppose any tax hikes in a recession, that they don't have the power to prevent it, and are trying to mitigate the damage, and to remind people of this when the economy inevitably tanks.

    A majority of Americans voted for this situation. We cannot protect them from their own stupidity forever.

    I agree, with the MSM squarely in obama's pocket there is no way the republicans can win.

    Yes. The Ministry of Propaganda (MSM) has given the Golden Calf worshipers (voters) exactly what they wanted.

    I wish we could develop the same dedication and ability to focus on a path that the democrats have. They really don't care what is said, who is blamed or what happens, they have a goal and right or wrong they will not stop.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.
