Op-ed: 
85 Republicans should just put a 'D' after their names
By: Diane Sori

With Tuesday night's passage of the so-called 'Fiscal Cliff Bill,' Barack HUSSEIN Obama kept his campaign promise to fundamentally change America. America has now become like socialistic Europe, changed drastically from the America our Founders intended. Obama's constant bloviations that income taxes must be raised on the rich, because they don't pay their fair share, finally resonated with 85 sellout Republicans. And so they passed this joke of a bill...but the joke is on 'We the People' as the $600 billion worth of tax hikes and ridiculously miniscule spending cuts will come from our pockets NOT theirs.

Welcome to socialism American style with more on the horizon.

Obama cackled immediately after the bill passed that this was a victory for the middle class, but whether those who voted for this abomination care to admit it or NOT taxes for most Americans will go up this year despite Obama's bold-faced lies. It is anything but a victory for middle class taxpayers as these tax increases and minimal spending cuts (delaying oh so wrong automatic cuts to the defense budget by only two months) will probably send our economy back into recession by year's end.

And people will see their January paychecks shrinking as they will indeed pay more taxes, NO matter how much Obama tries to fool us that they won't. A middle class family earning between $40,000 and $50,000 will now assume an average tax increase of a minimum of $579 and households earning between $50,000 and $75,000 will now assume an average tax increase of a minimum of $822. That means that 77% of American households will be forced to pay higher federal taxes in 2013. 

Why...because the current payroll tax breaks will end and go up by 2% hurting virtually all taxpayers, even though the Bush tax cuts stay for individuals making less than $400,000 and married couples making less than $450,000 (at least the Republicans insisted on this), but does let them lapse for income above those thresholds.

Bet you didn't see that one coming...and that's Obama's New Year's gift to the middle class...stinks doesn't it...and remember, ObamaCare will now go into effect and that monstrosity taxes primarily the middle class...so much happiness from one man (insert sarcasm here).

Simply, in a vote of 257 to 167, 85 Republican representatives sold out to Obama and allowed this to happen...NO other way to put it. 85 Republicans turned their back on a Republican core principal...NO NEW TAXES period! And lets NOT forget that now $4 trillion will be added to the deficit over the next 10 years...$4 trillion more dollars on top of the $16 trillion debt we already have.

Obama owns that debt...but the 85 sellout Republicans helped him secure that and stick 'We the People' and our children with it.

And what makes this even worse is that the 85 Republican sellouts voted for this bill simply because they feared that if the bill failed Republicans would be blamed for tax increases. Guess what...as I previously stated we're getting them anyway!

So even with the passage of this abomination NOTHING is over because in a few weeks the battle will continue, this time over the debt ceiling and automatic spending cuts that would hit the Pentagon and defense budget hard. Democrats will continue pushing for tax hikes as part of those debates, while Republicans will continue demanding spending cuts and entitlement reform. 

But thanks to Tuesday's vote, Republicans demanding anything is nothing but a joke as Obama now rules the roost and arrogantly gloats so, as witnessed by his statement after the vote, “I will NOT have another debate with this Congress on the bills they racked up.” 

Uh...excuse me...the Republicans have in NO way ever racked up as many bills as this arrogant miserable excuse of a president has done...and all on the backs of 'We the People.'

And so the battle will rage on but with 85 Republicans selling out there's little chance of anything good coming from 'Fiscal Cliff part two...The Debt Ceiling.'

The selling out of America continues...Obama built that and Obama owns that...along with the 85 Republican sell-outs who might as well just put a 'D' after their names.

    1. In case you didn't know I happened to have organized a rally on July 4th in DC in 2011 so you really should NOT criticize anyone until you know what they've done.
