Fiscal Cliff – a Good Clip from earlier in the Week (Maddow)

This segment, I thought, did a great job of laying out the insanity of the Republican’s proposals: They lost an election, and as a result are now offering LESS than they were offering as a way to convince people to vote for them? Their “balanced” proposal gives them everything they want, and only an undefined promise to address loopholes and deductions (part of what Democrats want). Eventually. So probably not.

And yet many of the Republican side are still not happy with this proposed “compromise”. They say they find the deal “wanting". As Rachel says, “Wanting for what?” They get everything they want. They give away nothing. This is not governing, and also more evidence that the Republican party are quite out of touch with reality.
