Hope You're Happy Now, Teabaggers

As described in the Washington Monthly:
 "HOUSE REPUBLICANS TO BREAK KEY PROMISE ON DAY 1.... When House Republican leaders unveiled their Pledge to America in September, it included a pretty striking promise to voters -- if elected, the GOP majority would "roll back government spending" by "at least $100 billion in the first year alone."

GOP leaders touted the figure incessantly throughout the campaign season, and kept pushing it in the lead up to the new Congress. Indeed, as recently as last week, party leaders were...sticking to the $100 billion figure...Monday, Republicans started slowly backing away from their $100 billion commitment. Yesterday, the pledge was effectively thrown out the window."

Well, teabaggers, I hope you are happy about the rewards that you are already getting for having trusted the Republican party.  Believe me, if you like this, you are going to be in heaven.  This is just the beginning.  Thanks for being such responsible citizens, and electing people solely based on their willingness to lie to you.

And by the way, there is a guy in the White House who could give some thought to what you get when you "cooperate" with Republicans.

They will probably figure out some way to blame the Democrats. Just wait. We will soon hear

"Democrats are obstructing progress."
