Grover's empire is crumbling. The American people have spoken, and the Tea Party is anti American.

Awesome! Daddy O just got more cash in his checking account. Increased taxes on 77% of us. There is no "free" stuff, just earnings taken from others.

Congressional approval ratings have been dropping since the Democrats took control of Congress in 2006 and is now at an all time low of 9%. Spending, deficits and debt accumulation during the same period, were also at an all time highs. Our government is dysfunctional and spends money like drunken sailors, while accepting no accountability for their actions and non-actions.

Alas, if only there were a money tree.....then this President would be awesome (except for the war quagmire). The reality is America cant continue providing one dollar of services while funding only 55 cents for each dollar it spends. Economics 101 judgement day is coming for each and everyone of us in this country..............

I wanna play poker with the Republicans. A couple days ago, they walked away from a bill that raised taxes on people earning over $1M, only to return a couple days later to pass a bill which raises taxes on people earning over $400k. Most. Incompetent. Party. Ever. Lovin' it!
