45. When the Democrats take back the House next year, Obama will have a much easier time solving our
problems. We won't take him "to the edge" to raise the debt ceiling.

Unemployment will come down and taxes will go up.
And those 2 things are certainties.

If Obama has a more liberal Congress to work with in 2013, the problems this country has will be solved faster and easier without all the Kabuki theater we have had to endure for the last 8 months.

Oh, and I almost forgot --
Mr. Boehner, where are the jobs?

Since that is what the GOP campaigned on last year, 12 months ago.
