    Curmudgeon,
    Just wondering if you happened to review the past "fiscal cliff" discussions? You know the ones that the democrats promised to do cuts into the budgets if they would only support the tax breaks for the middle class?

    Did that happened? NO, it has not.. You seem the GOP actually put a tax hike for the rich (maybe not to the level the Dem's want) and reveune increase through closing loop holes.

    What has the democrats offered? High Tax rate on the wealthy, additional (800 billion)Stimulus spending and NO CUTS to the budget.

    they talk about the past cuts to medicaid, but then they put that right into the Obamacare package, so they really never cut anything....

    But it is the GOP that is holding hostage the fiscal cliff... LOL

    Imagine two parents in an unhappy marriage with 100 kids, and one parent obstinately favors two of the children at the expense of the other 98. Can anyone say child neglect?

    Great comment!

    Any Judge - looking out for the best interest of the children,
    would also immediately take away prevlidges to the abusive Parent.

    One man's principled stand is another man's petulant inability to compromise. Compromise always seem to apply to the other person, not oneself.

    This letter was published in the Deseret News? Shocked, I am. Simply shocked.

    The truth is the middle class (and the lower class) are going to pay for all the Govt. spending sooner or later. The sooner the easier.

    Congress is strongly divided on many things.

    If they would quickly pass the things that they do agree on (tax cuts for the middle class) and fight later about everything else, America would be much better off.
