Congress Epic Fail

GOP Ransom Demand: Implement Our 2012 Platform


Congressional Republicans have unveiled their list of demands for raising the debt ceiling and it appears that they’re seeking to implement the 2012 GOP platform.

The bill, obtained by the National Review, tacks on items including a one-year delay of Obamacare; tax reform in the image of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI); approval of the Keystone pipeline; expanded offshore drilling and other pro-oil and coal energy reforms; increases in military spending coupled with deeper cuts to domestic programs; repealing a fund in the financial regulatory reform bill; means testing for Medicare; repealing the Obamacare prevention and public health fund and medical malpractice reform.

They’d also like a fully-fueled jet waiting for them on the tarmac which will whisk them away to a place where the little people can’t eat them when the revolution begins.

If all of this sounds familiar, that’s because it’s what Mitt Romney ran on in 2012.
