We'll see....won't we?

Does ANYONE trust John Boehner? I certainly don't!

They sound so optimistic, until they actually sit down and start figuring out what to cut. I don't trust John Boehner; he hasn't done anything to make me believe he wants to help the average American.

Let's hope Obama doesn't queer the deal like last time.

Obama and Boehner came to an agreement a few years ago. Shook hands. Then Obama changed the entire agreement. Know who Obama is and why that negotiation fell through.

The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior.

The time for ACTION is now, not just talk

Noted. I've written Obama and my members of Congress telling them to let the Sequestration that both parties already passed....stand. This "fiscal cliff" is ridiculous....it's all about the wealthiest wanting to keep their tax cuts and not cut Pentagon funding, because it benefits major war corporations. I'm hoping that the conversation with Boner is just a sham...with Obama telling Boner he's not backing down on taxing the richest. Members of Congress from both parties are getting pressured by their wealthy corporate financial backers to stop the Sequestration, and we must badger our Congress critters to let Sequestration stand.
