"Get over it", GOP! Dig into your pockets and give back to the voters, the "freebies" that you gain in office.
A nation divided will fall, if that is what you are aiming for next year as a goal!!!
Just as small children squabble, the noise becomes too much....and finally a Mother turns a deaf ear to the bickering. Taxes have to be proportionate to the means of survival.
As the GOP insists on "playing the game", the wealthy continue to gain in the ability to survive, while the 99% coping with the slim chance of survival look forward to bleak days of little hope.
Any businessman KNOWS, that one sells the product to those that can afford to make the deal. The rich can "buy" into the economy of the nation, which in turn boosts the rate of growth for all.
When, the cuts hit those on a slim margin, there is no where to go but backwards and down. Stop playing the game of "hitting hard" to those that can least afford to fight back.
