Republicans: Our way or national disaster

Posted By on Mon, Jul 11, 2011 at 3:27 PM

The Republicans are unified. They won't approve an increase in the debt ceiling for any plan that puts additional taxes on millionaires, not even if Democrats trade off important cost savings in Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

Republicans would wreck the country to win a political point. Period.

The Republican idea of compromise is that they'll allow the country to avoid a calamitous default as long as they get their way on everything.
