I think you are seeing the beginning of a new era in government. A government that will, by necessity, have to become smaller because a minority group in either house will not have to be trampled by the majority.
The government is out of borrowing capability and without both houses of congress agreeing to a raise there will be a default.
This is actually a good thing because for a long time the majority (those that don’t make enough to support themselves and their famiies) have been tyranizing the minority (those of us who voluntarily live within our means) by taxing away our earnings in the name of fairness.
The Tea Party is saying – “NO MORE!!!”
They won’t allow this to continue without some concessions and I for one think they are heros!!!
I don’t think the government should be in the Robin Hood business and think any impediments put in place to stop that activity are a good thing.
Dictator Obama continues to piss and moan about how it’s all the Republicans’ fault but it really comes down to a lack of leadership on his part. He didn’t get involved in the negotiations when he had the chance and when they broke down he felt he could just blame the Republicans. I think history has shown us that the majority of Americans agree with his opinion but again I take you back to the way our government was set up. It was intentionally designed to keep the majority from trampling on the rights of the minority.
