Democratic U.S. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver of Kansas City is getting all kinds of deserved national attention for calling the new debt deal a “Satan Sandwich.”
Once again, everyone must suffer, except the rich. Once again, the Republicans show that "compromise" means giving in to all their demands, with no concessions required. Well, teatarded America gets what it wants, and the irony is the bond markets might still downgrade the U.S's credit rating, which, thanks to the Republicans taking the routine housekeeping matter of raising the debt ceiling hostage may well increase the deficit, and as interest rates go up, so does of course, the cost of servicing the debt.
This isn't a government, its an assemblege of right-wing zealots who'd rather make us all suffer to make a point, than to do what's right by the nation.
