    Boehner's problems with the radical "Tea Party" Repubs have just begun.

    The GOP has only tax breaks for millionaires and corporate loopholes to offer. They have no way and no desire to deal with the nation's real problems and in fact are the cause of most of them.
    You can't maintain a huge military-industrial complex on the backs of the lower and middle classes.

    If you're supporting the GOP, you're screwing yourself and you don't even know it. Only the top 11% have benefitted from GOP policies set in motion by Ronald Reagan. Most Americans, despite being more productive and working harder, have lost income and wealth since 1980.

    In fact, 89% of Americans have lost ground since 1980. Only 11% have benefitted from growth in the American economy.

    [i][i]Since 1980, more than 80 percent of total increase in Americans' income went to the top 1 percent. Economic growth was more sluggish in the aughts, but the decade saw productivity increase by about 20 percent. Yet virtually none of the increase translated into wage growth at middle and lower incomes.[/i][/i]That the rank and file GOP and Teabaggers don't know that or won't acknowledge that, doesn't surprise me. Most people don't know when they're being screwed anymore. That's why we have a GOP House of Representatives.

    in 1915, when the richest 1 percent accounted for about 18 percent of the nation's income, the prospect of class warfare was imminent. Today, the richest 1 percent account for 24 percent of the nation's income, yet the prospect of class warfare is utterly remote. Indeed, the political question foremost in Washington's mind is how thoroughly the political party more closely associated with the working class (that would be the Democrats) will get clobbered in the next election. Why aren't the bottom 99 percent marching in the streets?

    One possible answer is sheer ignorance. People know we're living in a time of growing income inequality, Krugman told me, but "the ordinary person is not really aware of how big it is." The ignorance hypothesis gets a strong assist from a new paper for the journal Perspectives on Psychological Science: "Building a Better America—One Wealth Quintile at a Time." The authors are Michael I. Norton, a psychologist who teaches at Harvard Business School, and Dan Ariely, a behavioral economist (and blogger) at Duke. Norton and Ariely focus on the distribution of wealth, which is even more top-heavy than the distribution of income. The richest 1 percent account for 35 percent of the nation's net worth; subtract housing, and their share rises to 43 percent. The richest 20 percent (or "top quintile") account for 85 percent; subtract housing and their share rises to 93 percent. But when Norton and Ariely surveyed a group whose incomes, voting patterns, and geographic distribution approximated that of the U.S. population, the respondents guessed that the top quintile accounted for only 59 percent of the nation's wealth. Way off the mark.

    I love the way many of you guys got sucked in by brand Obama, and her never came up to what they fooled you he would. stop wars, for one. Thats on the scrap heap, just for starters. But you would rather focus on other issues than a real major one. Obama should not be given a second term; he has done enough bad and not enough good; already. Don't give him a second chance.

    Stimulate your economy, not your Government.

    socalfitness is stuck in a 1950's mindset, its a case of not progressing in life, stuck in a "we've always done it his way", "if it was good enough for grand daddy its good enough for me" mindset. such people just hold progress back and need to get in a chair somewhere, keep their backward opinions to themselves and let younger people take us forward.

    Out of the Washington echo chamber - this budget deal has pissed off Teabagger voters.
    They will not accept compromise deals like this in the coming budget battles.

    The Repubs created the "Tea Party" "movement" with a lot of extreme rhetoric and incitement.
    They got the "Tea Party" supporters all riled up and made promises that they can't keep.
    It's going to backfire on the Repubs over the next year or so.
