David Gergen analyzed the super committee failure on CNN and framed the two sides this way:
"Republicans complain that federal spending under President Obama has gone up dramatically and cuts should come there before any new taxes.Democrats say that the rich have increased their wealth much more rapidly than the other 99%
of Americans, while their taxes have gone down, so that the first order of business is to raise taxes on them. Both sides have valid points, worthy of debate."
He states that this super committee "would meet for 10 weeks
this fall and forge a bipartisan agreement that would do far more to bring down the nation's deficits."
OWS started in mid-september, about the same time this committee started to meet. I think the Community Organizer In Chief and his minions are a lot more tied to this group than they admit, although they were not at all reluctant to support this group. Run these pinko, commie, bastards out of DC next November.
Any sane person who would take the trouble to graph out federal spending over the past 5 years will easily see where the problem is. Try it.
