Raising taxes and reducing military expenditure are the only two ways that will save America. The Republicans are so out of touch with the people.

Sounds to me like the republicans and the tea party are still bent on going down the same path of no compromise and obstruction. It’s hard to understand how such a loathed, disrespected body would retain the same partisan makeup.

Republicans have no choice but to compromise with democrats if they like their jobs. If they don’t America WILL give power back to the Democrats in 2 years.

It is hard to understand how they fail to get the message after two defeats. America doesn’t want Republicans – how hard is that to understand?

The era of Liberal give-away programs is over, the excesses of 2008 have come back to haunt the Dems. Obama can get that concept, or he can spend the next two years whining and then turn into a lame duck. Congress is more conservative than the representative totals. All of the GOP will vote to cut benefits, and Blue Dog Dems will join them. It’s going to stay that way for a very long time.

What is most surprising is that the president appears to have had no coattails. The 2010 Republican House gains were the greatest mid term gains in generations. Normally, there would be a pull back from there in the next election – but they have retained virtually the same majority. that is unusual.

It is time for the Republicans to start working for the good of this country instead of standing in the way. The President and Democrats cannot heal this country by themselves, and until the Republicans step up to compromise we will all continue to suffer.
