Spineless republicans will roll over on taxes but cuts will not happen


They will support some increase in taxes and point to so called cuts they will support when in reality there will be no cuts in spending. They will merely cut planned increases in spending and call it cuts.

Not in my lifetime has the spending actually been less one year than the previous year.

We need a Ron Paul like leader of the republican party. These Rockefeller back slappers like Bohner and McConnell are not going to actually reduce government. Have you ever heard one of them mention individual liberty????

Agreed... Thats why they need to sit on their hands and let the automatic cuts/increases kick in.

Sad but true.

Although if they were clever, they extend the Bush tax cuts for two more years for everyone under $250K. Give Ogump exactly what he says he wants.

When it doesn't work, the economy still sucks, and we still have massive deficits, come back and say "We tried it your way, now let's do it right."

Unfortunately they have no brain and no spine, which means it won't happen.

I think the GOP's new strategy is to out Democrat the Democrats.

Taxes are going up and so is spending. There is no way to stop our elected officials from bankrupting America. There is no way the economy can keep up with spending and the debt will going higher faster and faster.

I agree with this. Unfortunately, it won't happen.

Saxby Chambliss can suck a dick.

I also agree the GOP will fold...fricking pussies.

So the consensus here is that the Republicans should refuse to do the things that are inherent in their constitutionally mandated jobs, including working with the opposition to solve problems if at all possible, and simply behave as petulant ideologues. Right?

Big travesty if this happens. Notice there are no protests from those who voted Obama in. The 47% of gift takers staying silent.

Sitting tight with no action would be economically aweful in the short term. Otherwise everyone is about spot on. I also agree we need more libertarian leaning rupublicans, but the evangelicals only want us for a vote and then crap on us. Case point Huckabee.

You mean like Obama who has not passed a budget in three years? He couldn't even pass one with a democrat Congress. You mean like Obama who in February rejected Bohner's offer to deal with the fiscal cliff before the political season?

The idea that it is republican who are unwilling to compromise is laughable. The record speaks for itself. What other President could not come to an agreement with Congress on a budget???

The Fiscal cliff legislation was legally signed into law by President Obama. This was a bipartisan law. How are the Republicans not following the Constitution?

Show me in the Constitution where it ways that the minority in congress has to compromise.

I think you are taking the position of mob rule. The forefathers did not want that to happen. We have the system of checks and balances for a reason.

Yep. I had high hopes for Boehner, but it doesn't seem to matter which Republican becomes speaker, it seems his spine is removed as soon as he's given the gavel.

The democrat leaders are much more committed to leftist socialism than the republican leaders are to small government and individual freedom.

re: Spineless republicans will roll over on taxes but cuts will not happen


The republicans have no vision for small government. They barely speak of that. Low taxation is what they speak to. At no time have they ever cut spending or not grown government under their watch. And individual rights? That is a conservative principle now days? They think u have the individual right to choose for urself on issues they approve u to choose for urself. The republicans don't think it is ur choice to smoke a joint, marry whomever u want, or watch whatever u want on tv. U have secondary choice after their approval. People still think this is Repub platform, small government and individual choice?

Saxby Chambliss is caving. The Norquist wall is crumbling.

Republicans are every bit as career-minded as Democrats. They will NOT allow taxes to rise for the 98% for the sake of 2%. To do so would mean political suicide for many of them.

Obama will have his way.

I think it will be spun differently. The republicans know that there will be no cuts. But they can act like Polyanna and claim they trust the Dems to be honest.
When the cuts don't happen they can claim that the Dems promised cuts in return for the tax increases and the Dems lied. They are shocked... shocked I say.
