Whatever Republicans or Democrats win they both win it, in corporate party solidarity together.

If Democrats were the Solution, we wouldn't have the Problems.

Obama tries to be fair, compromise & help middle c lass but GOP stalls blocks filiibusters smears at every turn Fox Beck Hannity demonize him. . GOP Bagger run congress demand even more more corp tax cuts- loopholes- subsides and more GOP deregulation...We tried that since 1981 Reaganomics IT failed . Corp run media does not tell us the facts behind the story . Investigative Jouirnalism as we knew it years ago is dead. Media just repeats what each side says without clarifying who is fibbing / leaving out pertinent info. CNN needs Ted Turner back That man had cajones. Fox GOP show is a disgrace. Fox has millions of loyal fans / many are Obama haters.. Rush has millions of ditto heads. whom he speaks for and to. Fans do not question his honesty . Sad comment on voters ability to think logically, check facts- use reason. I'm glad I grew up when public schools gave kids an excellent education . We had NO calculators to do our math for us ..and no google to search for info . We went to the library . NO Face book NO video games NO I phones We were always active walking, jumping rope, swimming in the comm pool, playing hop scotch, tag Your IT yes I am that old 68 .!

Apparently, according to C Span the GOP are going to discuss the payroll tax cut extension at 5 PM EST. I have C Span on now so we'll see who gives this time around. Amazingly even Karl Rove is now telling the House to vote on the Senate bill, so he's joined with McConnell on this one.

Corporations outspend taxpayers in Congress...

You may be surprised to learn that we spend about $2 billion dollars a year on our dysfunctional Congress. However, it's even more surprising to learn that corporate lobbyists spend even more to buy off our federal lawmakers.

From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
