Here is the list of Tea Party Senate Republicans who threatened the AAA Bond rating with Senator DeMint being the king of the tea party terrorists because they have held our economy hostage. They are on record for wanting to shut down the government like anarchists, and now they want nothing to do with bipartisanship. Ronald Reagan was a good President because he worked across the aisle. What makes tea party politicians better than Reagan? Why don’t they acknowledge that Reagan increased taxes, too?

It’s unfortunate the Republican Party has been hijacked by freshmen and crying babies.

Their intransigent demands for deep spending cuts, coupled with their almost gleeful willingness to destroy one of America’s most invaluable assets, its full faith and credit, were incredibly irresponsible. But they didn’t care. Their goal, they believed, was worth blowing up the country for, if that’s what it took.
Like ideologues everywhere, they scorned compromise. When John Boehner, the House speaker, tried to cut a deal with President Obama that included some modest revenue increases, they humiliated him. After this latest agreement was finally struck on Sunday night — amounting to a near-complete capitulation by Obama — Tea Party members went on Fox News to complain that it only called for $2.4 trillion in cuts, instead of $4 trillion.
