    So I have been reading and watching where you are with the White House with days to go before Christmas.

    TELL THE "SPEAKER" TO LET THE PRESIDENT HAVE HIS TAXES ON THE TOP 2% AND THE AMOUNT OF CUTS THE DEMOCRATS WANT!!!!

    This is too important to be stubborn after almost going through another DEPRESSION!!!
    He won the election. The people knew what he wanted. If it does not work, you and the speaker can point the finger at the democrats, as they pointed to you on Iraq and the economy.
    Bottom line. WE PAY YOU GUYS TO GET SOME WORK DONE. GET TO WORK, ALL OF YOU, SO THAT THE COUNTRY CAN!!!!
