fiscal cliff

Yet again we see our elected representatives in Washington failing to address the important issues. Headed by President Obama and  supported by statist minions and the main stream media. All of the aforementioned individuals or groups are feckless in the execution of their duties to their constituents and generations to come. Report: ‘Fiscal Cliff’ Deal

Those curious as to whether or not the GOP gained anything by submitting to the desires of Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama should simply digest the words of conservative columnists Charles Krauthammer.  “Look, there are a lot of conservatives in the Republican caucus in the House who hate the bill for good reason.

Sen. Tom Coburn says he can accept a tax increase, but he wants something for it in the way of “significant entitlement reform.” Republican Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) told me Sunday on ABC News’ “This Week” that he is willing to accept tax rate increases as a component of a fiscal cliff deal, as long as Democrats put “significant
