Much to many democrats disapproval Obama went ahead an offered a daring compromise with house Republicans in the recent spending negotiations. Boehner still rejected the proposal because he was not happy that billionaires would get taxed. I say this loud and proud, Boehner is a cunt.
I’m not happy at all with what Obama proposed, but at least he tried.
The biggest irony of all of this is that many people who would complain if they lost Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security voted for the same Republicans who want to cut funding to these programs. I’m sorry but this really reflects a severe lack of foresight and intelligence in the people of this country.
I really couldn’t describe in elaborate enough detail just how irked I am with all of this but whatever. Welcome to the first time America declares bankruptcy. All of this in the name of politics to make Obama look bad as well. In reality the ones who should, and do, look bad through all of this is those who cause the bankruptcy. I just really hope people realize that if there is a default on America’s ability to pay it’s obligations, it will NOT be Obama’s fault. He tried. He tried in a way that was very unfavorable to many of his core supporters, but he tried nevertheless. For that he gets my vote in 2012.
