Why do we even differentiate between Republicans and Democrats any more? They are all the same. There isn't a dime's worth of difference between them, as evidenced by their total collapse in passing the bills to avert the so-called "fiscal cliff".
There is no principle in the Republican party any more. They have given the President everything he wanted, and will drive us even more deeply into financial ruin. Why does the Republican party exist any more - they only do the bidding of the Democrats. Even when they had the majority, they couldn't do anything with it. Except be Democrats.
