    is it the RINO’s that are preaching “compromise”??.. did Pelosi, Reid and Nobama “compromise” on the Obamacare nightmare, or any of his outrageous czars, appointees, increasing regulations, and ridiculous spending of us further into unsustainable oblivion?.. nope, just plow through, read it later, and kick the can again down the road to get THEM through, but NOT us..a “compromise” just continues to overspend our money, and get them out of their jam, to buy THEM their 2012 re-election.. am sick to death of US always having to give in, when it’s THEY who have had no budget, no plan, no meaningful cuts that the majority of taxPAYERS WANTS them to do.. why not make THEM be up against the wall for a change, let THEM try and “fix” it with even more taxes, if not, we can save lots of angst, time, and money in ’12:THEY will prevail, and continue our descent into 3rd- world status.. pathetic!..

    Compromise is what’s only going to work right now. Like it or not, the Democrats still control the Senate and the White House. Now maybe, if waco’s like Sharon Angel and Christine O’Donnell run for Senate, there may have been a spilt or given the Republicans the control to when to introduce bills and vote on them etc.

    Then the goal is to get Obama out, keep control of the House and gain control in the Senate. There is a good shot this year to take out the Senator from Missouri who seems to be going along with the Reid Obama Pelosi agenda. And Missouri is a state that essentially went 50/50 in the last presidential election.

    Here’s the compromise, raise the debt ceiling by 100 billion with 500 billion in cuts. And NO TAX HIKES. It should be a 5 to 1 deal. How ever much you want to raise the debt by 100 billion, you need to counter it with 500 billion in cuts somewhere.

    There, I just solved the problems, now lets get Congress back to arguing what color they are going to paint the fence along the border when the wall eventually gets built.

    The compromise that 70% of the Amercan people are for are a combination of spending cuts, a tax increase and the closing of tax looholes for the top 1% of income earners and the end of taxpayer subsidies to big oil, ethynol subsides etc.

    I’d hope there are enough members of Congress that are not extremists on either side that could support that.
