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

One man's principled stand is another man's petulant inability to

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.
