Yesterday a mom was criticized (even being called a show-off) for wanting to spend their hard-earned $ on a Lincoln Navigator. But then you turn around & defend the GOP & their poor decision making on keeping tax cuts for the rich.
The GOP is getting away with holding the middle class hostage by being insistant about continuing the Bush tax cuts for those earning over $250,000 (it was discussed that they would even raise the limit to $1 million- no tax cuts for millionaires) in order for them to agree to extending the unemployment benefits. These so-called businesses that will benefit from the continued tax cuts are hoarding their money- they aren't hiring the unemployed! (At least not here in the U.S.) This behavior by the people who are supposed to be representing "the people" is disgraceful!

The GOP protected the middle class by insisting that the entire package be extended
That is the funniest statement I've ever heard. Did you say that with a straight face. Laughable. They had a vote Saturday the republicans voted no on tax cuts for people making under 250, 000, and then no again on anyone that makes under a million. Way to protect the middle class GOP, thank you

Maybe YOU should have voted for someone who knew more about business than a 6 year old with a lemonade stand!!
I think this is even giving Obama too much 'business' credit and insulting 6 year olds everywhere... Shame on you Lori~.... The extent of his business knowledge is what ACORN taught him.. Ohh what? ACORN is bankrupt???? Hrmmmmmmm Anyone surprised?

It sounds like you are directing this question at someone specific... Maybe you should venture out of cowardly anonymous land and private message them... ;o)

Dems still have a majority. GOP isn't holding sh!t hostage. Neither are working in our best interest or they would be finding ways to fund our government without more borrowing.
Oh, and I don't care what kind of car anyone wants to buy, as long as they can pay for it.
