---- — Republicans learned nothing from elections
The Republican Party is the party of the rich for the rich, run by Grover Norquist and the Tea Party. Why are Republicans so afraid of them? They didn’t get the Republican nominee Romney elected.
The Republicans’ latest phony offer on the fiscal cliff is a joke: Cuts to Medicare, Social Security and health care, but no increased taxes on the wealthiest top 2 percent. Sixty-two million Americans want taxes raised on them
Just look at all the money that poured in to the elections. If they can afford to pay all that money, they can afford to pay more taxes. When will the Republican Party learn to do the people’s work and stop listening to the Tea Party? If you continue to hold up the economic recovery you will pay the price in the next elections.
On another subject: Sen. John McCain should get together with Speaker John Boehner so they can cry together.
McCain says Ambassador Susan Rice should be held accountable for the four lives lost at the embassy in Benghazy. It wasn’t even her job to provide security.
Under George Bush, our embassies were attacked three times. Why didn’t you hold Condoleezza Rice accountable for lying about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq? Did you hold her accountable for the 4,700 dead and the 50,000 wounded veterans in Iraq? It’s time you Republicans learned all this nitpicking gets you nowhere. Playing politics will get you nowhere. The end is near for the Republicans and the Tea Party.
