Hear that? We may be on the precipice of the fiscal cliff, but Harry Reid and his fellow Democrats are ready to make tough choices!

Reid, whose Senate has not passed a budget since April 29, 2009, blamed Republicans today for standing in the way of a solution to the looming fiscal crisis. There just hasn’t been enough progress, doggone it!

And, in a shocking move that no one expected, Reid called for the fiscal cliff to be dealt with by … raising the debt ceiling.

Clearly he subscribes to the Tim Geithner School of Fiscal Responsibility. Debt ceiling? To infinity and beyond!

The markets didn’t take kindly to Reid’s remarks:

Nor did conservatives, who are sick and tired of being forced to watch Reid and his corruptocrat buddies play fast and loose with our money — and our country’s future:

Perish the thought! The Democrats don’t have time to learn from history. They’re far too busy making tough choices.

Meanwhile, remember the Democrat mantra: when in doubt, blame the GOP.

    Harry Reid is a slanderous scumbag. He ought to be censured for his repeated, baseless lies about Romney. If I were in the Senate, I would refuse to so much as look at him passing in the halls, let alone vote for something he’s advocating.

    • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

      Because that is such a mature and cooperative attitude to have. ‘You pointed out a lie my friend said so I am not even going to LOOK at you!’

      • Hello Jerry (D)

        You make as much sense as Harry the Hemorrhoid; NONE.

        Let me spell this out for you. If Mitt Romney paid one penny of taxes over the last 10 years, then Harry Reid is a liar.

        What’s that, you say Romney paid more in taxes than most Americans will pay in their entire lives? Then Harry Reid is particularly nasty scumbag of a liar who hasn’t the slightest regard for the truth.

        Does that compute?

        • Dan parkison

          I guess his missing 10 years of tax returns would have told us a lot about how the mega rich “pay” taxes. What would you think was so bad about his tax returns that he could not release then..like even his father had done when he ran for president???

          • Shawn Smith

            Dumbass, he did release them. It was in the news. Then other dumbass liberals (but I repeat myself) were mocking him for paying *too much* in taxes.

      • Shawn Smith

        You’re right though, we should embrace the same spirit of cooperation that Reid had talking about the potential election of Mitt Romney. What did he say, oh yes, the idea of cooperating with the other side is laughable.

        We could learn a lot from racist old scumbags like Harry Reid.

    • EEKman

      Nice try Tagg. Now go make daddy some chicken soup. He doesn’t look so good these days.

      • Shawn Smith

        Yeah, it’s just terrible for a son to show respect and a sense of honor for his father. He should be a good liberal and be viciously ungrateful and snotty to his parents.

  • Danny Wheeler

    Oh, for the love of God! Reid, it’s time to retire… if you have any 401K left! (ZING!)

    • Shawn Smith

      Oh don’t worry about him. However badly these nimrods up on Capitol Hill screw over the rest of us, I’m sure they have bulletproof plans for their own retirements. When he retires, he’ll be doing just fine, paid for by you and me.

    SS is not the Problem,, Corpsepeople paying Net -0- in Taxes and the Defense Budget is

    The rapepublicans want to steal our retirement insurance known as SOCIAL SECURITY ! Demacrates want to save S.S. ! Now who does it sound like cares about the working man ?

    • Canadian in USA

      I assume you have proof of your assertions and not just using Democrat talking points?

    • tredglx

      You mean corpsepeople like your hero Zero’s Buddies at GE?

      Thirty corporations paid less than nothing in aggregate federal income taxes over the entire 2008-10 period. These companies, whose pretax U.S. profits totaled $160 billion over the three years, included: Pepco Holdings (–57.6% tax rate), General Electric (–45.3%), DuPont (–3.4%), Verizon (–2.9%), Boeing (–1.8%), Wells Fargo (–1.4%) and Honeywell (–0.7%).

      How many of those are Democrat party contributors?

      Best way to have no defense is to keep gutting the defense budget. Just like Jimmy Carter’s years, if you remember those.

      How, exactly, does the GOP want to ‘steal’ Social security? Give specific examples.

    • Zane Henry

      Maybe you can explain how taking 716 billion dollars from SS to fund O-care strengthens the SS trust? I’ll wait while you consult the oracle at HuffPoo for your answer.

      oh, and defense is 20% of the non-existent budget. Entitlements are over 60%…if there were a budget.

      • EEKman

        Oh now Obama took 716b from social security now? LOL Conservitards live on a totally different planet.

        • tredglx

          SS, Medicare, what’s the diff? It’s still 716B that was raided from SOMEWHERE to pay for 0bamacare.

          • EEKman

            Saying Obama raided 716b to pay for obamacare is like saying my wife raids the grocery budget with coupons and uses the money she “raided” by not spending it on groceries to buy our daughter new clothes.
            Maybe you should actually look up where that 716b comes from. He’s not raiding anything.

    Harry Reid id s a joke. He’s the one who said he wouldn’t even work with Romney if he won. We all remember how he outright lied about Romney, so who would listen to him now? He is the real “obstructionist” in DC! CUT SPENDING HARRY, then talk about increases in taxes. Three times before the Democrats conned Republicans into tax increases with the promise that cutting spending would follow. Cuts never happened. NOT THIS TIME BUCKO! Show us what you have on the table first! You LIE!

    • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

      How is that any different than any of you saying that no one should work with Obama?

      • Shawn Smith

        Obama made his opinion of bipartisanship clear when the first thing he did with the presidency and both houses was pass a bill that infuriated conservatives without offering anything in the way of compromise. Then when his party lost the House of Representatives, suddenly bipartisanship was his watchword.

        If he wanted bipartisan cooperation when he needed it, he should have shown some respect when he didn’t.

  • Fire and Adjust!

    So we avoid going off a fiscal cliff by making the cliff even higher and the eventual fall even longer?

    C’mon Harry, watching you try to come up with a sane solution is like watching a dog trying to bury a bone on a concrete pad in the middle of a national park……..

  • pairadimes

    Harry Reid is the Jack Kevorkian of Senate Majority Leaders. Go ahead, put in the drip line, Harry, and give it the juice! America! Can’t wait to see how it ends! What an idiot.

      He’s in the perfect pose………..

    Has Harry ever proved that is isn’t a pederast? Sicko.

  • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

    Um…it is the republican’s fault that no compromise was made. That is apparent to every single American. The Tea Party cost us taxpayers 1.3 billion dollars last time they decided to make a huge stink out of the debt ceiling being raised. Thanks tea party.

    • Hello Jerry (D)

      Shut up. You will make more sense.

      • EEKman

        He’s right.

    • Hello Jerry (D)

      Shut up. You will make more sense.

    • Shawn Smith

      So is it the Republicans’ fault that the Democratic Senate hasn’t passed a budget in three years?

  • no_more_deceit

    Introduce a bill yesterday to eliminate base-line budgeting. Then push Reid, Durbin over the cliff and pass a REAL budget, preferably Paul Ryan’s.

    According to a source I cannot name Harry Reid uses tax dollars to pay for prostitutes and cocaine.

    Unless he provides documents proving otherwise he should be considered guilty…

    Hey Harry, I just heard from a reliable source that you’re a dumb f#$@!ng a$$?0/€!!!

  • nc

    Where are the discussions on the cuts? Oh yeah, I know, they scare people with threats of cutting the mortgage deduction or charity contributions and everybody shuts up.

    Meanwhile, no one talks about the $6 billion to Indonesia for green energy or the countless duplication of bureaucratic agencies, not to mention the mind-numbing waste.

    The Repubs must fight back on this. Based on past experience, I’m not holding my breath.

    No cuts and more debt is the Reid way

    Who elected this fool?

    Nevada should be penalized and fined for re electing the worthless piece of shit.

  • Frustrated Teacher

    Just heard Pelosi on the news saying the Dems have already agreed on over a trillion in spending cuts. I guess she just gets up in the morning, writes down as many lies as she can, compares notes with Harry and spews them until she runs out. The last set of cuts they supposedly agreed to were pushed about 4 years down the road…then they just forget about them and slam for higher taxes on the ‘rich’. It is the same crap every day!
