    They want two year medical device delay, exc., democrats should be able to get a roads bill to rebuild infrastructure and create jobs, High speed rail, sequestration ease up. We should at least get something for something. Some spending for future cuts. For the past years we gave republicans draconian cuts just to simply allow the country not to be harmed. Well now Democrats want at least equal out of the deal if they can't do it cleanly!!!

    Isn't it amusing to see men with their bank-books full of the Country's money crying out for Debt and do not know how to fix it? Can't someone show some intelligence and let you all become worthy of your Jobs??

    Don't and never will patronize your overpriced coffee. However for those pretentious enough to pay $5.00 for a cup of coffee next time when you order it should be frappe mocha, light and hold the politics.

    These are the only people the GOP are beholden to....they really don't care about Christians, conservativism, principles, morals, ....they worship and cow tail to Big business with the money who fund their campaigns. So when the dept ceiling date is past and business start to feel their dollars played with, the Republicans will scream mercy. They don't care about the poor who might be missing meals or middle class who can't pay bills or children getting kicked out of head start...BUT when big business feel their luxurious lifestyles slightly affected, the GOP will come runnin.... showing their true morals and values. PEOPLE don't tell you who they are, they show you!!!!
