Hear the Rant by Dylan Ratigan - it's where we are now:
Holy Cow! You can't even get a good night's sleep after your birthday before another budget battle starts.
We all want, and the country really needs, big tax increases for the coming budget.
But, the Reps have just stacked the committee with tax-hardliners who will not raise revenues.
So, Barry, y'all gonna have to go to the mattresses because another war is coming.
And, this time, the Rep gang won't take any compromises because they want you - and the Country - dead.
So, Barry, you caint make a deal with them: y'all gonna have to 'kill' them in the political sense instead.
The deal is this: you kill them before they kill you and the Country - our Country, the good ol U S of A.
Is too bad, but that's the cards out there.
There is a real chance that the Country will go down for the count as collateral damage this time, Barry. Those guys don't care if the country dies, they jes wants what they wants. It's effin' absurd.
We are rootin' big time for you to get them before they get us because it's our future on the line.
