The Republicans' one-way street

Posted By on Wed, Nov 2, 2011 at 1:30 PM

Democrats on the so-called Super Committee are willing to damage their base by agreeing to major cuts and changes that could affect Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

Republicans?

They just say no. Particularly to taxes. Particularly on taxes to millionaires.

They WILL NOT work in good faith. They WILL NOT compromise. They take their orders from Grover Norquist. Do voters get it?

If poor people and the middle class must pay, rich people and corporations must pay. Fairness isn't a word in GOP dictionary.
