But there's little evidence, at least as of yet, that Republicans are going to take the deal -- or even that they can take the deal. That raises the question of whether they've gotten here by being savvy, tough negotiators, or whether the reason they keep saying "no" is that they've lost the ability to say "yes." As David Brooks writes today, "If the debt ceiling talks fail, independents voters will see that Democrats were willing to compromise but Republicans were not. If responsible Republicans don’t take control, independents will conclude that Republican fanaticism caused this default. They will conclude that Republicans are not fit to govern. And they will be right."

They have taken a position and refuse to give an inch. Bigger question is, why are we allowing this to continue to happen. We are the people who put them there, are they representing your views or their corporate owners?

This independent has already decided that they do not have this country's best interests at heart. This independent thinks a lot of them should be charged with treason.

They have the best interest of the corporations who basically own them now. They are puppets. They have not one credible piece of legislation introduced in the last 4 years that creates any jobs for the millions who desperately need them. Wait and see how fast they come to the aid of Exxon Mobile which has currently dumped 42,000 gallons of oil already. Just watch. In the meantime, while they at Exxon are enjoying record profits, where is the money going, certainly not to making sure their pipelines and equipment are properly maintained, lessening the chances of such "accidents". But by all means, let's vote people into office that will continue to give tax incentive and breaks to the very people who not only don't need it, but throw it in all of our faces by not utilizing those same profits to create jobs or maintain the safety of the workers and this country.
