The edge of the fiscal cliff; with nowhere to go but up

December 18, 2012

0

It fascinates me to watch (often reluctantly) the endless parroting of Republican sound bites, talking points and blanket statements about the “dangers” of the fiscal cliff.

So with all this media fury over Rep. Todd Akin’s despicable and shamefully ignorant explanation of “legitimate rape,” why isn’t anyone going after Paul Ryan for the exact same thing? Ryan co-sponsored the “let’s redefine rape” bill with Akin. It was called the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act,” H.R.3 in the very first session […]

For a group of people who paraded around in ridiculous costumes, making outlandish claims and swearing before god (and then, country) that they – personally – were going to put an end to reckless pork-barrel spending in Washington, there sure are a lot of teabaggers with deer-in-the-headlights glaze over their eyes as the 2011 Congressional […]

The proposal, which has been advanced by top GOP leadership, involves eliminating a law that requires states to set aside 10 percent of the federal transportation funding they receive […]

I keep hearing John Boehner and Mitch McConnell and a whole slew of second-and-third tier Republicans bashing the Obama jobs speech that will be delivered this Thursday by the President. Several of the GOP D-listers in Congress are trying to scoop some headline spotlight attention by declaring that they’ll boycott the speech because “America needs […]

Bravo to Senator Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire for displaying a chart on the Senate Floor today that clearly and factually shows each president for the past 50 years and their respective raises of the debt ceiling. John F. Kennedy raised the debt ceiling 4 times for a total increase of 5%. Lyndon Johnson raised […]
