“Despite good-faith efforts to find common ground, the White House will not pursue a bigger debt reduction agreement without tax hikes. I believe the best approach may be to focus on producing a smaller measure, based on the cuts identified in the Biden-led negotiations, that still meets our call for spending reforms and cuts greater than the amount of any debt limit increase.”
Let me clarify that for you, the republicans know damn good and well that tax hikes are not being taken off the table and now they are going into reconcilliation mode.
Well damn, color me surprised, not.
Hey, when they go in shooting for the moon and demanding unrealistic concessions, get them, and are still not happy?
Go to bed and you are not getting dinner you spoiled little fucking brats.
Now is the time to get out the switch and start whipping their asses until they scream for mercy.
Rotten fucking bastards were all too willing to let our government default on the debt that THEIR fucking party saddled us with and when it comes down to the perspective of just who is going to wind up with a flaming bag of dog shit in their hand if that actually happened,, they fucking blinked.
The official policy of our government is that we do not negotiate with terrorists.
As far as I am concerned, the Republican party most certainly falls under that category by definition.
So, now that Cantor, Boehner and the rest of their ilk have been holding our country hostage over these budget talks and someone finally clued them in to what might actually happened if we default, my money is on some fucking asshole in the banking industry finally putting some facts in front of their asses and pointing out some of the probable consequences if that were to actually happen.
This time, it wouldn't be just the poor and middle class who would be getting an uninvited finger up the ass and God forbid the rich should contribute to the cause, which is exactly why Boehner got trotted out for some negotiating finally.
Fuck you very much, peckerhead.
