Good Golly Miss Molly! Here we go again with another RINO in the senate…some of you may see it differently, but that’s how I feel about Sen. Corker and his ilk. Once again we see them caving to Dear Leader…nothing like the never-ending acquiescing the fools on the republican side of the aisle do when times are tough. You can definitely say the tough don’t get going in this situation regarding the 24/7 ‘Going off the Fiscal Cliff‘ scenario. This media-driven brouuhaha from the talking-heads is getting past old in my opinion…yet we have nitwits in the Senate that fear their own shadows, the House too.
This is what happened this morning on one of the political shows. See what you think about what was said. – This is via FNI:
With the fiscal cliff looming, is the government any closer to reaching a deal? Leading senators, Charles Schumer (D-NY) and Bob Corker (R-TN), joined Fox News Sunday this morning to discuss the latest.
Sen. Schumer was optimistic that Congress would reach a deal. He said revenues are standing in the way, particularly making the top tax rate go up to 39.6 percent. “I think you will see our Republican colleagues reluctantly say okay let’s go up to 39.6.”
Sen. Corker said there is a growing body of Republicans, including himself, who believe the best route to take is to give in to President Obama’s tax rate increase on the top two percent of wage earners. He said, “There is a growing group of folks that are looking at this and realizing that we don’t have a lot of cards as it relates to the tax issue before year-end. […] So a lot of people are putting forth a theory, and I actually think it has merit, where you go ahead and give the president the two percent increase that he’s talking about.”
The Republican senator went on to explain that, “All of sudden once you give them the rate on the top two percent it’s actually much lesser tax increase than what he’s been talking about. The focus then shifts to entitlements and maybe that puts us in a place where we actually can do something that really saves this nation.”
The problem, Sen. Schumer pointed out, is that “Speaker Boehner hasn’t said that, and so we Democrats realize that there have to be two sides to this bargain. But we’re not going to go back to what we did in 2011.”
We’re in for a helluva mess the next four years…no doubt about it, yet we have those on the supposed right side of the aisle continue to contribute to that. – With friends like this, who needs enemies!
