“In a closed-door briefing Tuesday, Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas), the Republican co-chairman of the panel, said divisions among Democrats are standing in the way of an agreement. He told his colleagues the GOP had put multiple offers on the table that Democrats had yet to accept.
Boehner told reporters that the GOP offer was ‘fair,’ referring to a $1.2 trillion proposal by supercommittee member Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) that included $300 billion in new tax revenue.”
As the “Super Committee” grinds to gridlock less than a week before their deadline, House Republicans have passed at least fifteen separate pieces of legislation intended to help jobs creation; bills being blocked by Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Meanwhile, the current White House occupant willfully blocks pipeline jobs while blaming Republicans for doing nothing.
As this goes on, the “mainstream media” (more accurately described as the “progressive” Party Pravda) sweeps reality under the rug. The insist on fictitiously reporting that the Democratic (better known as the “progressive”) Party is doing all it can to create jobs and the evil, blood sucking, throw grandma off a cliff Republicans are blocking all agreement. This is a blatant attempt by people who wouldn’t know journalistic integrity if it bit them where the sun doesn’t shine to manipulate public opinion.
The “Super Committee” shows what’s wrong with America’s government.
In 2010, the American electorate spoke with resounding force, demanding an end to big government, massive deficit spending, and continued tax increases to pay for out of control government interference in the private sector economy. As a result, record numbers of “progressive” Democrats in the House of Representatives were sent packing. “‘progressives” who remain in control of the Senate and the White House continue to act upon the false notion that they know better than the American people.
As was the case in 2010, it’s time for the We The People to speak with a united voice and remove “progressives” from the Senate and the White House. 2012 and an end to “progressive” tyranny can’t come soon enough.
