    If you think O is to blame please explain how that is so.Read my comments to “DillonDee1″. Obama has a logical plan and dems agree BUT it’s the house and senate that vote on the issue.The problem is conserves have prevented such plans from coming to a vote.Additionally the house has a large conservative majority which is hell bent on pushing a agenda that is not good for the economy If you think otherwise refer to my comments as mentioned and refute my comments with fact

    Tea bagers ignore basics and don’t realize the difference between long and short term spending.Boehner is putting party and his speaker position ahead of the country. If these people were really interested in compromise and wanted to keep tax breaks for all wouldn’t tax breaks for 98% of citizens give them 98% of what they want?Europe in the name of austerity has cut social programs that take from the middle class and as a result face double dip recession and in the U.S. repubs want they same

    After a 30 yr period of the wealthy seeing a 300% increase of income vs. 40% for the middle class if trickle down economics worked why is the economy in such poor shape?The simple fact is that what conserves are selling is not good for the economy During a time after WWII when the top tax rate was 90% and nearly 40% of the work force were union members the economy prospered.The middle class with their disposable income is the engine of the economy and when you take from them the economy suffers

    There are other conserves who are responsible as well.After causing the S+L crisis and the financial meltdown is it a surprise that repubs are about to cause more fin. problems for the country in a effort to protect the most wealthy?Boehner embraces the policies that caused all of our fin. problems as do the vast majority of conserves.These people claimed tax breaks were needed for the so called job providers and after a decade of such where are the jobs?Still conserves push for more of the same

    It is my understanding that Obama received the Peace Prize for his work with nuclear disarmament started when he was still a senator.
    Time Magazine’s person of the year is voted on by the people.

  8. DillonDee1 May 31, 2013 at 4:54 am #

    I don’t totally blame Boehner for screwing up the economy —

    Trying to lead the Tea Party people is like trying to herd chickens.

  9. DillonDee1 May 31, 2013 at 5:19 am #

    The Republicans announced tonight today they’re driving us over the fiscal cliff & into a Recession –

    But at least the Defense Dept will have a good cut in spending.

    Obama has NOTHING in his bag.

  11. apolloguide May 31, 2013 at 6:06 am #

    Obamas children are born of Jerry Sandusky. Obama has no stones at all. It is time for Michelle to reveal the truth of the empty scrotum of Barack Obama.

  12. apolloguide May 31, 2013 at 7:01 am #

    Obama is the worst half breed ever to destroy America…

  13. apolloguide May 31, 2013 at 7:41 am #

    Obama tells the truth like a lie and lies like the truth. A total actor…

    Joe from Chico needs to go back to 5th grade to see if he can be smarter than a 5th grader.

    Does the alcoholic sue Jim Beam for destroying his liver? Does the family of a man who committed suicide in his garage by running the car sue Ford for selling a vehicle with an internal combustion engine? Should I sue Cutco because I sliced my finger open while trimming the fat off of my steak? No that’s nonsense. Tobacco companies new their product was dangerous, spent millions to make them more addictive, and lied about it all. I don’t see Browning claiming guns are harmless.

    I say tax tax tax tax people the mill and bills baby. NO body should have that much money

    Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize has single handedly discredited the entire prize. it means NOTHING now. you dont get to be a mass murderer, win this prize, and everyone pretends you are a hero. NO. the nobel peace prize doesnt cover your war crimes.

  18. Allan Baker May 31, 2013 at 8:40 am #

    I hear the ‘conservative’ arguement for the no more guns in Australia arguement Thom is giving is “Armed robberies have gone up”. HOWEVER! Armed does NOT mean a gun.

    Arguement debunked.

    ‘Monkey Business’ reported on this, too (S1E1), except that MB coverage is a little offbeat, so MB just reported on the most annoying phrases of 2012 – ‘fiscal cliff’ was voted number one.

    If anyone’s watching the series, it’s MB S1E1. Meanwhile, more ‘Monkey Business’! In MB S1E9 – the trillion-collar coin.

    Marcel proposes a trillion-dollar-coin timeshare: ‘Of course I’ll be back. What on earth am I going to buy with it? A planet?’

    Yes, it matters how they got their money. If a person works hard their entire life, creates his own small business that grows exponentially, and adds jobs to the market field, it matters. If a person wins the lottery they spend it to no end and end up w/ nothing.

    What makes you think those that make over $200,000 a year aren’t paying their fair share?

  23. M Luis Nosce May 31, 2013 at 10:38 am #

    LMAO … US Congress “what a piece of work”. It is however our fault for electing them. Bottom line, we are all LOSERS and we will pay for it at the end.

    Hey RT, do a story how Osma Bin Laden and Al-quadea had access to Tesla Technology on Sept 11th, 2001.

    Dr. Judy Wood’s study is unquestionable: Tesla Technology was used at the WTC on Sept 11, 2001. You think George Bush and Barrack Obama don’t know this?…..they are War Criminals!!!!

  25. Sept11Discovery May 31, 2013 at 11:28 am #

    Hey RT..heard your rant about conspiracy theories…and you didn’t mention Dr. Judy Wood.

    So please interview Dr. Judy Wood….it’s Tesla Technology. What do you think they do at places like Area 51 RT? Build better bombs and bullets?

    Interview Dr. Judy Wood.

    “$70 Million went to NASCAR??? WTF”

    Sigh– even in making a last-minute overdue fiscal deal, the 2 parties still had time for pork-barrelling…

  27. MrSafetymeeting May 31, 2013 at 12:15 pm #

    More taxes won’t help a thing. They’ll just spend more. Our government is run by spoiled children with no concept of living within a budget.

  28. Oliver Neves May 31, 2013 at 12:44 pm #

    HERE IS ANOTHER SOCIALIST’S. the working taxes payers are the losers, the winners banks and big corporations . both party’s are the same corrupt,

    dam jews and there thieving taxes

  31. Daniel Glascock May 31, 2013 at 1:37 pm #

    I think the truth is that most people who talk shit about others being in power would succumb and do the same things as these people. It’s easy to sit back and judge but why not start being the people that will change this stuff right now. We are the world and the world is you, so I think the best thing to look at is what am I doing on a day to day basis that might be contributing to the same exact things that the people you condemn do.

    Barack Insane Obama was born at a time when both parents were required to be born in the United States in order for him to be eligible for the seat of President.

    This is breaking news. Doesn’t matter that he has a fake .PDF birth certificate. It’s all a distraction to the real information.

    He has already claimed his father was born in Kenya and was a Kenyan.

    He is currently a war criminal sitting illegally.

  33. mickey anon May 31, 2013 at 2:32 pm #

    this president reminds me of Richard the lion heart when he spent almost all of England’s money on his war campaign and made the people pay more in taxes to recover from it except kings like him would actually go and fight with his soldiers and not hide like a coward i thought we split and fought England to get away from this kind of bullsh@t

  34. Angel Rivera May 31, 2013 at 2:41 pm #

    band-aid solution coupled with smokes and mirrors, failure mixed with lies in the nervana of ignorance. American mid-class losses again! as hollywood get tax breaks! NASCAR get tax break! and the American ppl get a bill!?

  35. kingddtJr May 31, 2013 at 3:35 pm #

    That wouldn’t work in todays society.

  36. tonchibear May 31, 2013 at 4:29 pm #

    I LOVE watching RT. But part of the fun is reading the comments on here, Facebook, and the Max Keiser page. Some of the very…creative individuals.

    There’s PLENTY of money but we will NEVER fix the money-go-round bcuz it’s not meant 2 b fixed!! Don’t u c that yet? When u live long enuf u will. The global family all needs the same: clean air,water,food,shelter,relevant education & medical care. So what’s the problem? There is none. With people reaching out & helping ea other, we’re moving away from the need 4 money. A Resource Based Economy IS a real possibility. Otherwise r ancestors sacrifices will have been in vain. thevenusproject dotcom

    200 years to pay this shit off.  We need to take it back and we need to do it soon.

  44. SkipSpotter May 31, 2013 at 8:53 pm #

    RT…leave the false flags alone.The fiscal cliff will be a film soon based on “fact” just like the “based on fact” capture and demise of Bin Ladan…pmsl

    Go and do some reporting on what is being put into our atmosphere via planes.If you want help please ask.It maybe non mainstream,but the facts are not hard to find. Im begining to think RT is part of the agenda.God I hope not.Who funds RT? (gulps)

    Why does America spend their political life plotting wars to kill people, and waste tax payers money on killing people, is it because they don’t know anybetter? Or because the Banksters says its only way they will get anymore money to prop up the Ponzi schemes & they are locked into this cycle of violence. The people they are killing don’t have anything for them to rob except the land they live on, so this has to be wars based on LAND GRABS to get the land they have to kill the people.
