From Fox Snooze:
Eric Cantor’s simmering insistence on avoiding tax hikes has boiled to a political tempest in Washington’s debt negotiations, infuriating Democrats who are now labeling the majority leader as “childish” and forcing Republicans to insist there’s no rift between House Speaker John Boehner and his top deputy.
Senator Harry Reid wants Cantor removed from debt ceiling negotiations.
“Boehner needs to rein him in, and let the grown-ups get to work,” added a House Democratic source who called Cantor “juvenile.”
Did the Democrats ever stop to think that if America’s dollar value tanks, it will be the regular working folk who suffer most? (Y’know, those people the Democrats pretend to represent?) Even if wealthy people lose 50% of their net worth due to inflation-related causes, they’ll still be wealthier than most people in the world. What about you?
According to Open Secrets, 6 Democrats are among the 10 wealthiest members of Congress.
Democrats benefited far more from McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform than Republicans, experiencing increasing business contributions.
Democrats received over 50% of all business campaign contributions in 2008 and 2010. (I did the spreadsheet, the Open Secrets link shows all sectors.)
McCain-Feingold gave Democrats a decided advantage with 527 contributions, too.
Democrats are doing nothing but protecting their own, and blaming Eric Cantor for it.
