The fiscally insane Republi-Nazis in the Senate are threatening to block all legislation unless the Democrats agree to a one trillion dollar give away to the ultra rich elite to be funded on the backs of the working class through cuts in social services that are vital to those making less than a 100K per year.
Never mind that the self appointed "deficit hawk" have no plans to off set this budgetary disaster other than whipping out the China or Saudi credit card there by further contributing to the deficit.
The Republicans hate America and want to destroy the American government and replace it with a Confederate one.

WASHINGTON – Senate Republicans threatened Wednesday to block virtually all legislation until expiring tax cuts are extended and a bill is passed to fund the federal government, vastly complicating Democratic attempts to leave their own stamp on the final days of the post-election Congress.
This includes the blocking of the Defense Spending Bill
Blocking the Repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell
Blocking the extension of Unemployment Benefits, which will immediately end benefits for two million people among the under reported unemployed and under-employed.
All to wage class war on the working people so they can transfer another trillion dollars to the top 10% of the wealthy in this nation.
The Republicans are fiscally insane and are the enemy of the working people.
