As noted previously, the deficit Super Committee is gridlocked largely because the GOP is unwilling to accept higher taxes on wealthy people as part of a compromise with Democrats that also cuts Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. But the parties also differ on the question of whether their recommendations should include any near term spending and/or tax cuts to give the weak economy a much-needed boost.
How much revenue will the plan of the GOP members of the Super Committee actually raise?
That huge red bar of course, which you can't see because it's freakin' zero, that's why. God, I hate Republicans.
Here's a baby goat just because I need something to counteract all this stupid.
