At what point do we start locking people up for being "sabotage the economy' crazy?

It would be a stupid thing to do politically because after November Obama doesn't have to face the voters again, but Congress would have to explain why they voted to raise taxes, slash defense spending and tank the economy in the 2014 midterms.

I say after Obama wins, let the crazies be free to crazy. See how that works on the midterms.

After these last 4 years, I don't think, contra the author's assertion, there are a lot of liberals out there who think the GOP is on the cusp of cooperating with Obama. If anything, the left sees the GOP congress as even less likely to compromise than ever before.

When your article rests on a faulty premise, then...well, you know the rest.

Lets see what happens when the Dem's turn right around and proposes tax cuts for 95 to 99% of the people are the Republicans going to vote against those,

Lower taxes on the middle class and a little higher taxes on the wealthy is what the Dem's wanted anyway.

I say let all the tax cuts expire, as they should have been allowed to do last time.
Then, you can talk about new cuts. They're bluffing. There's no way in hell the top .01% will allow the GOP to allow their dividend tax rates to go back to 39% from the current top rate of 15%.
