Obama screwed us but Boehner gets the blame. He thought he could negotiate with a slug and found out otherwise. Ohio Rep (R) Steven La Tourette, supporting Boehner, says the same group of 40 or so Republican "chuckle heads" in the House who have messed things up all year are the bad guys. I don't know, they probably aren't any more open to negotiation than Obama. Trouble was, Obama is a narcissistic SOB and he knew he held all the cards- do nothing and he gets everything he wants. Whoever is to blame for this farce I can see my taxes will be going up real soon now. And no, I'm not a millionaire or billionaire.
