It's time for us to grow a backbone.

The media is trying its best to make it look like the entire country is being held hostage by the far right and that the mist sensible thing to do is for Republicans to compromise with the president and raise rates on the wealthy and give him unlimited power to raise the debt ceiling any time he wants.

To hell with "political repercussions"!!! If we sit idly by and let the likes of John Boehner raise taxes by billions of dollars over the next ten years without cutting anything but proposed increased, we might as well forget about fielding a presidential candidate in 2016.
