“Why are we dividing ourselves along Democrats and Republicans, refusing to put revenue alongside of cuts? Mr. Speaker, we’re at the bone, almost, and sequester that is across-the-board cuts will literally destroy us and put us in a recession.

I stand here as a freed slave because this Congress came together. Are we going to be able to do it today to free America?”

Thom Hartmann

“The gun folks are out there saying guns don’t, you know, guns don’t kill people, people kill people. I would say, OK, guns don’t kill people, inequality kills people. Why is it that the United States has this horrible problem? We are one of the most unequal countries in the world. And we didn’t so much have this problem when we were less unequal, in the ’50s, ’60s, ’70s, we were a very egalitarian society.”

Michelle Obama

“We are seeing right now that we are in the midst of a huge recovery. Right? Because of what this president has done.”

Joe Biden 5

“[H]ow they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried the last four years — how in Lord’s name can they justify raising their taxes with these tax cuts?”

Timothy Geithner 2

Barack Obama 7

“We tried our plan — and it worked.”

When I look at the Republicans, I am tempted to dismiss them as the Treason Party. Seriously, were a band of traitors to concoct a series of positions deliberately designed to weaken America, they would be hard pressed to beat the current GOP dogma — hobble education, starve the government by slashing taxes to the rich, kneecap attempts to jumpstart the economy by fixating on debt, invite corporations to dominate political discourse, balkanize the population by demonizing minorities and immigrants and let favored religions dictate social policy.”
