    Wake up, Mr. Boehner...the clock's ticking...

    Where are the spending cuts?
    Obama wants to raise taxes on everyone not just the rich in order to finance his spending spree which will send this country into a death spiral. Most Americans have already seen their annual healthcare costs rise an average of $2500 because of Obamacare and it will rise another $2500 once fully implemented.

    John Boehner has proposed, in what's being called Plan B, raising taxes without anything in return. Basically what Boehner has done here is adopt a plan put forth by Pelosi this past spring. And the White House has rejected it.

    This is Boehner explained Plan B because the president won't talk to him. The president won't move on anything. the president wants to go over the fiscal cliff. The Republicans don't want to go over the fiscal cliff. If we go over the fiscal cliff, the Bush tax rates expire for everybody, and everybody's tax rates go up to what they were during the Clinton years. They go up not just for the rich, but for everybody exactly what Obama wants.

    The country has a lot of low-information voters #$%$. who got Obama elected. To the low-information voters Obama is a cult leader he is whoever they want him to be. They don't know or care about the truth. They are going to discover that their take-home pay is significantly less but will be too stupid to realize it was Obama who caused it.

      LETTER to the EDITOR-- MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE
      Let's look at what we have learned from this election: Twenty-one of 22 incumbent senators were re-elected, and 353 of 373 incumbent members of the House were re-elected. The American people have re-elected 94 percent of the incumbents who were running for re-election to an institution that has an approval rating of about 9 percent. This indicates, as an electorate, we are a nation of idiots. We're now stuck with the useless, dysfunctional government that we deserve.

    • There are no spending cuts committed to by the Democrats. They want it their way or they won't play. I hear all the talk of compromise, but the Democrats don't even understand the meaning of the word, at least the President doesn't. His 'give backs' are nothing, they are all for show and tools to use so they can blame it all on the Republicans. Obama has refused to own the spending, lack of budgets and terrible economy for the past four years and it apparently looking for a way to blame the next four on someone else. Why? Because he knows it won't get much better, but he will have gotten his way.

      He wants to remake this country, but what he wants it to become is not what the American people will want or enjoy.

    • Best byline I saw today: President rejects Boehner's surrender!
