How long do you think you can screw the poor to award the rich? The budget requires bipartisan agreement with at least 60 votes. Pretty soon you will not have anymore poor people to screw over. When you look at the statue of liberty, remember it came from France where they beheaded all their rich, who did not care about the poor. Since the republicans have not seen daylight since President Obama's inauguration, I guess their view is very dim at this point. What they are doing to this country is a shame.
