Do you recall who the governantor was who destroyed California's economy? He was Republican and his policies truly set back the world's 8th largest economy. Do I blame all Republicans for the fact that Schwarzenegger is a moron? No and he was voted in by what you keep calling a liberal state? If they only ever vote Democrat how did he get in to office?

Fact is...this is a "Lazy Country" and Obaman is the leader...the figure head of "LAZY". The rest of the world sees that.
You keep falling for the stereotypical welfare argument. First off the people receiving TANF, which is what welfare is, is at an all time low. Since welfare reform and time limits it's almost inconsequential. Yes the food stamp rolls tripled in 2009. This wasn't because of Obama, it was because of Bush. They have dropped significantly since and new requirements are removing more from the rolls. If there is anything that is costing this country it's medicaid. Medical has always been up there with defense costs and that includes Medicare. It's why something needs to be done because no one except the upper crust can afford catastrophic medical costs, let alone normal medical costs. Maybe Obamacare isn't the answer but one needs to be found quickly. Your argument is very very stereotypical....and lazy.

Given that I'm a business owner...this is great that my taxes will be raised and that I will now have to lay off several workers.

Boehner very much wants to get something done, but yeah, its been Cantor and also the group of House GOP freshman that has made it a non-starter from a votes perspective. We'll see what happens. I really want something done on the debt issue, thats my No. 1 issue.

50-51% of the Country are the people who want things given to them...who don't want to earn them, and who live a true "Fictional" life.

Believe what you want. But, Obama does nothing but "Spend, spend, spend". Watch our deficet expand...and then go smoke your doobie!

Who cares...right?
Now you are showing every sign of why some republicans are idiots. It's a red and blue world to you, your way or the highway, no shades of grey, one simple answer for everything. No complexity exists in the world, because its too damn confusing for you. You know what, now F you. I'm part of that 51%, no one has handed me **** and I started working when I was 13 chucking newspapers and have been working ever since, I have two kids and own a home and I work hard.

Tough for you, your life sucks.

But I think in the House which is more fluid, and thats where the GOP power is, they will have to compromise. The primary issue is not as big an issue there.

I think they also can just read math just as well as anyone can. I hope this strengthens Boehner's hand and in turn weakens Cantor's hand a little bit. Everyone can read the results. I'm not suggesting they become Dems lite, but just be a center right party, rather than a right party.
Sure they can move further to the right. You'll see Palin back in the fray, and the Santorums. But yeah I agree on every point there except the House compromising, I don't see it. Hope there's no gridlock.

That's right. So, we will move jobs over seas, and we will lay more workers off....and America can continue to try and figure out how to fun welfare and medicare, and unemployment.

You know...the "Blue" way....we are all in it together...like the Russions...I mean the Socialists!

California's economy was destroyed well before Arnie showed up on the scene.

That's such bullsh*t. How is a higher rate on personal income tax affect your hiring decisions at all? 100% of that income is taken after your business expenses (even if you're organized as an LLC or S-Corp). Even then it's only on income beyond $250k.

I'm a business owner. I'll be directly affected by a tax increase. It won't change my businesses finances at all. Not even a little bit.

Don't be such a tool. I don't disagree with everything you posted, but I do get tired of simplistic assumptions made about California and people's political associations in general. I am capable of seeing the weaknesses in all the parties and I personally have never stuck strictly to one party or the other and I grew up in California and most of the people I knew were and are straight up conservative Republicans. Broad generalizations just irritate me is all. Texas has not always been a Republican stronghold, but it is now. If I recall correctly Lyndon Johnson was a Democrat and a Texan and I believe Texas went Democrat for Kennedy (yes I know that was a long time ago, but that says to me they don't and didn't always go Republican).
