    So, did Congress pass a budget like they were elected to do,
    or did they just pass themselves another pay raise?

    You truly expected them to do something? What an optimist you are!

    Just saw on the news that the Senate passed a bill on the tax structure. I wonder if anyone in the House will read it before they vote on it.

    Bad wreck, but everyone survived. Doesn’t even look like they got hurt. Maybe that means we can survive the impact of this stupidity as long as we learn from it.
    And also, American cars are much safer than they used to be. ;)
    I kind of feel the donkey was in the back seat yelling while the elephant was constantly grabbing at the steering wheel.
    Too bad Obama can’t control his party or influence the republicans.
    Besides, Obama can’t be the designated driver….the Secret Service doesn’t let him drive.
    With hopes that 2013 will be better,
    C.

    @DrCanuck

    Just what “day” did he save? He went on TV and blamed Republicans (even though Harry Reid and the Senate held up voting on anything of substance), and used the phrase “balanced approach” even though he has never considered spending cuts nor will he ever implement them.

    Has not the donkey been in the shot gun seat since 2006? That is about when W started listening to the Donkey? And where is the map? The elephant keeps getting the map out and Obama keeps throwing it out the window.
    The only good thing about Obama being re elected is that he can no longer hide in the past. And while the USA burns down in the next 4 years I do not want to hear “but but bush” from any loony liberal.

    @DrCanuck “Obama saves the day – just as you didn’t.”

    Dr. C: Happy New Year. For cartoon purposes he may have saved something but in reality both parties, starting at the top, have failed the American people to do anything more than make a cosmetic change to a problem that requires radical surgery. Obama, Reid, Bohner, and McConnell all basically failed the American people and make us look like a laughing stock to the world. If it weren’t so serious it would be a lot like slapstick comedy…

    @coraryan

    “Obama wrote a royal proclamation giving them a pay raise. (Oh, that’s “executive order”, I keep forgetting.)”
    *
    That is the greatest insult of all. They sit on their hands and do nothing and get a raise. If I had their record when in the business environment I would have been fired.

    @Gore Bane

    Well finally, we agree on something, gore bane. Let’s go over the cliff. Really more like a curb to step off of. It won’t hurt.


    As long as everyone is paying their fair share in taxes, I’m happy.

    @TheTrustedMechanic

    “fair share” a smoke screen to blame someone else. If collected it would be but a drop in the bucket of dept that Obama has let come to be under his watch. Obama would rather point the finger at 1% no wait make that now 2% and try to make them a bad guy then solve a problem that is our dept.
    In order for the “fair share” to work 100% have to be taxed at a higher rate then we are now. Obama says 1 then two when he really means top 50% or better yet anyone who does bring in some money! That is Obama’s target. So why care? those who put the car wreck into office do not care not them “fair share” does not cover them.
    Of course I get hit the hardest. I am not in the poverty level but with all the taxes going up I am being hit the hardest! I get taxed because I make money but my boss gets hit with Obamacare, my “golden” health care that I worked hard to get is being slammed. My boss who does hire teenagers is having to pay them more and more because of Min wage going up. He dares not hire 3 more workers for this branch of work, to cover some extra work that might bring in more $ because that would put him at this mythical 50 employees that Obama says now you must pay for Obamacare.
    Obama put down the dept! it is just not faaaaiiir.

    The Reeps ran up the debt to starve the government of money to fund social programs. Now they get to cut those programs in the name of austerity for the poor.
