Eric Cantor said today in a behind closed door meeting with fellow Republicans that "the debt limit vote sucks," whatever that means. He said there's going be a bill to vote on, a one that include just cuts, tomorrow. He urged the rest of the Republicans to rally behind that plan, despite that fact that President Obama and the public clearly demand a more balanced approach - one that includes cuts and revenue increases.

Speaker John Boehner was also in the room. He was just as lame as Cantor. "It comes down to the people in this room. It comes down to the willingness to stand together. This is the path to victory for the American people,"said Boehner.
It seemed as thought the two Republican leaders were pouring a good load of BS into their colleagues minds, because yesterday President Obama clearly said the American people demand a balanced approach. Last night, Pres. Obama said "Most Americans, regardless of political party, don’t understand how we can ask a senior citizen to pay more for her Medicare before we ask a corporate jet owner or the oil companies to give up tax breaks that other companies don’t get. How can we ask a student to pay more for college before we ask hedge fund managers to stop paying taxes at a lower rate than their secretaries?"
It's really unbelievable how these idiotic Republicans' brains work. Tell us what you think, share your comments below.
