How is Boehner (Norquist) going to explain to the American people that the reason they are losing jobs in droves and we are plunged into another deep recession is only because they don't want to raise income taxes on 2% of the population by a handful of percentage points? It's either get with the program or pay for it come election time.
Let him go wild I say to my fellow Republicans, The country will learn the hard way that socialism does not work. Once Obama gets his tax hikes HE WILL OWN THIS ECONOMY, I don't want to hear Bush's name ever again from a liberal stating this was his fault. This is Obama's economy from now on.
