    I keep seeing that; also that Senate and President are in agreement but House hasn’t chimed in. Well duh – of course the Dem Prez and Dem Senate are in agreement. It isn’t final until both chambers vote – and either there is no deal or Boehner has screwed us over and kicked cuts down the road.

    Translation: tax all of the people all of the time on all that they own. Beltway big shots exempt.

    The story reads that obama, reid, and pelosi signed off on a deal.
    House wont get to it until tommorow at best.

    and solar energy credits,…..but, but, but, I thought taxpayer money wasn’t supposed to be used to subsidize corporations?

    that is unless its a scam corporation whose intent is to milk the company dry and give the money away in political donations to demoncrats.

    Punish the responsible and productive members of society by stealing from them, reward the 96 percenters and 70 percenters by paying them to fuck indiscriminately in the ghetto.

    Don’t call me an American anymore. This is just the shithole I live in.

    How right you are. According to “them” this isn’t our country anymore, even though we are the other half of the population. And to think, our despot hasn’t even been sworn in yet, and already the battle is back in full swing. God knows what the landscape of our nation will look like four years time. Maybe we should go to France; they seem to be waking up over there. I hear Cuba’s creating private sector jobs.
