The most irresponsible act is coming to an end. It never stood a chance. Holding the citizens of the United States hostage is never the answer. Americans will never allow themselves to be jammed.

Unfortunately the Republican Party allowed its Right Wing Tea Party faction to force it to be ‘jammed’ by the more sensible politicians in the Senate, both Democrats and Republicans. Those that ultimately cared more about the well-being of the country will win.

The Fox News clip below is instructive.

Fox Reporter: We have reached a deal. We are expected to hear about it any moment now. Here are the details of the plan as we hear it; a Continuing Resolution through January 15th, a debt ceiling increase through February 7th. It will require income verification for those who receive subsidies on the insurance exchanges in Obamacare. That’s a small bone thrown to Republicans, not nearly enough to satisfy them. That perhaps helps a little bit. It will also create this bipartisan budget committee from both houses to report by mid-December. So if it is a done deal it moves to the house. Let’s listen in to what Representative Sean Duffy was talking about in the House’s perspective on all of this earlier today.

Rep Sean Duffy(R-WI): The reports we are hearing is it could be in the next half an hour or hour that’s announced. I am sure it will pass the Senate. And they will kick that over to the House. We are going to get jammed.

Fox Reporter: “We are going to get jammed.” Those were his closing words. That is a legislative parlance you might say for House Republicans, Conservative House Republicans having to swallow a very bitter pill. The reality is they simply do not have the votes to top it at this point.

We Got Jammed

Before this fiasco started it was a known fact that Republicans did not have the vote to undo anything. Last year when the polls did not agree with them they created ‘un-skewed polls’ to tell them what they wanted to hear, they’re winning. Fact aside they allow themselves to be indoctrinated by their petro masters into believing climate change isn’t real. They allow their children to be taught that carbon dating aside, that the earth is 6,000 years old. Now they almost brought down the world’s economy by claiming that not raising the debt ceiling would not constitute a default.

Who are these people? Who elect these people? A nation cannot remain great if it continues to allow the ignorant to play a significant role in its advancement. The education system in this country must be fixed so that going forward Americans don’t get jammed by those who live in an alternate state of reality or that are simply dumb.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
