"Meaningful cuts" was, after all, the GOP mantra going into the talks -- but what they came away with was a handful of sand. The Congressional Budget Office reported yesterday that the deal ac tually trims just $352 million from this year's outlays instead of the advertised $38.5 billion.I don't think the corrupt GOP leadership understands that they were given one chance to get it right...and they've blown it. We The People will remember in 2012 what you've done to our country, our party and those principles you claimed to hold dear. We will elect a new slate and you'll be kicked to the curb.
UPDATE: Instalanche! Thanks Glenn.
Here's a link that shows just who voted for the "deal" that screws America. Boehner blew it. He had a chance to do the right thing...and blinked. I hope that next year, someone will have the courage to give him a real primary challenge. Remember, for anyone to challenge an incumbent takes time and money...contribute freely to their opponents with both. It's the only way to show the leaders of the Republican Party, that We The People meant what we said at the ballot box last year.
UPDATE II: Percentage corrected per a commenter. Thanks!
