WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A bipartisan plan to raise the debt ceiling will be presented to Democrats and Republicans on Monday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said on Sunday.

"Leaders from both parties and in both chambers will present this agreement to our caucuses tomorrow," Reid said.

"To pass this settlement, we'll need the support of Democrats and Republicans in both the House and Senate. There is no way either party, in either chamber, can do this alone."

Republicans want cuts to the elderly, seniors on Medicare, Social Security beneficiaries, YET THEY REFUSE TO RAISE TAXES on Paris Hilton, Tom Cruise & Oprah and wealthy rappers and movie stars. Republicans refuse to end the 4 billion a year Oil Subsidies even though President Obama has said they NEED to end. They also REFUSE to raise taxes on wealthy Wall Street brokers, bankers and billionaires and those making money from the middle class/ working class poor which are ALREADY worked to death.

It’s pretty obvious that the GOP LOVES corporate welfare. They want to continue to allow the 96% of Americans who make under 250,000 to be slaves to corporate America while the 4% of American “fat cats” live the lifestyle of the rich and famous. What would Jesus say, you “religious” Republicans?

Republicans: you won’t be able to take money with you when you’re sixfeet under! How hypocritical: so many Republicans claim to be “religious,” yet the cardinal sin of all, greed, is part of their life.

The Republican Party is dying. Republicans, by in large, are ANTI-gay, ANTI-poor, ANTI-minority, and anti anything who isn’t Rich, White, or Wealthy. The younger generation doesn’t like that obese, balding, filthy-rich, racist buffoon: Rush Limbaugh, nor do they like the “bimbo” from Alaska who QUIT on the people of Alaska to chase millions at FLAWED NEWS (Fox News). She’s intellectually deficient along with Newt, Trump, Huckabee, McCain et al.

Finally…a newsflash to Republicans: Republicans’ approval rating is MUCH LOWER than Democrats and much much lower the President Obama. Republicans should visit Sarah Palin’s page and worship their big-boobed bimbo goddess there…yes the one who QUIT 2 years into her governorship in Alaska to chase millions at FLAWED (Fox) News. OooH how presidential Sarah Palin! *rolls eyes*
