Didn't have to watch Fox. Everywhere but Fox was abuzz with descriptions of how they totally lost it and tried to pretend that what was happening wasn't happening. I think even one of their on camera people blurted out some sign of incredulity about what the guys were saying. But,really, with no credibility to start with, what have they to lose. They could say Martians fixed the election and the outside verdict would be the same.

Well at least Fox has the audacity to report the news accurately, such as informing everyone that this sequester brainstorm belonged to the Democrats!!!

Suffice it to say that the Democrats are in an uproar at their Dear Leader and his former Chief Of Staff Jack Lew for foisting this upon them since their Dear Leader refuses to compromise unlike MOST of his predecessors going back at least to the sixties!!!!!

Until Obama decides that there's more to running the country than nonstop insistence on tax increases, which never result in an increase in revenue, and especially the capital gains rate, nothing's going to get done in DC, and he & Reid will have to accept 100% of the blame, which they undoubtedly deserve.

Wait until ObamaCare starts blowing up in their faces thanks to its 2,700 pages, plus 13,500+ pages of regulations so far.

Has there ever been a better disincentive for businesses not to hire new employees, and especially once they inevitably begin dropping their health insurance plans?

All together now---THANKS OBAMA!!!!!

If its all the same to you, I don't really need another ad nauseum reprise of WORN OUT talking points. Got anything original? What do you really know about finances at a national level? Do you really think it makes sense for hedge fund managers to pay 13% on a million dollars a year income while a waitress pays 33% on 1/2 minimum wage plus tips??? Maybe that's why the U.S. has an infant mortality rate behind Bangladesh. Maybe thats why 30 million jobs left the U.S. after taxes for the wealthy reached their lowest rate ever since taxes were imposed. You guys don't want compromise, you want capitulation. WIN next time, then you can dictate the Articles of Surrender.

** Did you know that fox's ratings are at a 12-year low - and sinking?
** You have just ignored everything said here so far - data be damned. Okay.
** So Fox is "news" as far as you're concerned. OK just accept what they say without question. Fox said the sequester is the democrats' plan, but there are continuing talks back and forth, and who's idea it was really is unimportant - except to Fox. This is what the sequester is.
READ: The White House explains how the sequester cuts would work

So across-the-board cuts will take effect at a point, unless the two parties come up with something else. Big deal!
** Re. taxes: where do you and Fox believe the cost of running government comes from? Please share.

Yeh, we all know about the "accuracy" of Fox reporting. Watching Fox is a sure way to know less and less that is real. By the way, anyone remember what Republicans said in 1993 when the tax increase was voted? How America would lose MILLIONS of job. By 2000, there were 15 million more jobs. And at that point, Republicans were claiming credit for George H. W. Bush. Each campaign is oblivious to what the last one said. Amnesia is also helpful to Fox commentators and the faithful who recycle their accurate news.

They're wacko! A comedy program. It almost seems like Saturday Nite Live.
