    Default Fiscal Cliff - Democrats Complete Failure

    I can't understand how anyone can believe Obama scored a win with the deal that was made. What happened was that the wealthy scored 'permanently' lower wealth taxes while being taxed slightly higher on ordinary income. That's a huge net win for the wealthy and a huge net loss in tax revenue to offset the budget. Republicans can pretend they're upset, but who's gonna believe it?

    Who needs Republicans [catering to 'conservatives'] when you've got Democrats like Obama [catering to wealthy conservatives]?

    When the piper comes for his payment, the wealthy will have retired to parts unknown.

    May I always be found beneath your contempt.
