What a bunch of Republican hypocrites we have in Washington right now.
Congress Has Voted 7 times since 2002 to raise the debt ceiling, but
now that Obama Is the President Republicans have decided against it.
It is so obvious to intelligent people just what is going on right now.
Republicans want to take this fight into the 2012 elections so they have a better chance of defeating President Obama.
They don't care what their fight is going to do to the American people.
The People need to take responsibility too. If they flooded the telephones and the emails of the Republican legislature maybe they would get the message.
Minnesota's shut down ended with everyone unhappy with the outcome. I think that means it was the best deal we could get at this time.
Republicans lost their battle and many of their followers are very unhappy with them.
There are a number of freshman legislators that are more then likely not going to be elected next year.
Many of the progressives are unhappy with Daytons agreement too, but he is not up for re election until 2014. If he can get a majority in the House and Senate in 2012, he will get the revenues increases our state needs.
I do not have a Masters degree in Economics but I do have common sense.
We need to end Bush's wars, his tax cuts to the rich, subsidies to the oil companies and make sure American corporations pay a fair tax.
If this is done I think we will be on our way to reducing this huge deficit George W Bush has given us.
