I Am Done With The Republicans
Eisenhower must be rolling over in his grave. Ever since the Republicans gained control in the House EVERY single year they try to play brinksmanship. Every single year they wreck havoc with my portfolio. Every single year they try to cost me money. Futures down 15.
Stop it Boehner. Stop putting this on Obama. It isn't. It is on you and your party. I don't blame Obama for not wanting to negotiate with a gun to his head. Stop using it. Try something new like negotiating in good faith. Stop using me and the rest of the people as hostages. I am tired of it. I am tired of being used by your party as a bargaining chip.
You pulled this in 2011 over the debt ceiling and cost us a 19% market drop and drop in credit rating. You pulled this last year over the whole fiscal cliff, willing to let my taxes increase. And you are pulling it again now. Point your finger all you want. There is NO reason to play brinksmanship yet again and I am just tired of being a victim of this nonsense.
Put the bill on the floor and lets see if there aren't 16 Republicans who wouldn't vote for a clean CR.
